All the Way is book two in the Hot Jocks series by Kendall Ryan. This can be read as a stand alone. I have not read the first book in this series. But I loved this so much that I most definitely will be keeping up with any future books that come along!

Owen Parrish is a goalie for the Ice Hawks hockey team in Seattle. He’s your typical single, sexy, hot athlete. He can have any woman he wants and frequently does. But always with their acceptance that it’s one night only. His caree

You guys, OMG! All the Way is LIVE on all retailers! This is a COMPLETE standalone. You do NOT have to read Playing for Keeps to enjoy it. This is a mega steamy, friends to lovers, with a strong alpha hero you will melt for. There's plenty of high-heat and delicious banter. Hang on to your panties, ladies!

Let me start by telling you that I am an epically SLOW reader. What takes you an hour to read takes me two.

I read ALL THE WAY in one day.

I NEEDED this story. I needed to fall into this world with Becca and Owen and experience the heartache, the turmoil, the sweetness, the tenderness and the incredible, patient LOVE woven through the pages.

Becca is such a relatable heroine, independent, strong, with great friends and a past she just can't seem to shake no matter how hard she tries. And Owen is
This is the second book in the “Hot Jocks” series and I enjoyed it a lot better than the first instalment. I felt this one had way more heart to it.
The story is about two friends who end up falling in love!

Owen is a professional hockey player whom loves women! As long as they are only around for a one night stand, then he’s all for them! Just don’t ask him for any kind of commitment! When his good friend comes to him with an issue she is having regarding her fears about sex... how can he say no

Angsty, hopeful, and passionate!

I loved how this story featured two flawed characters and the romance that between them. Becca and Owen may have known each other for years as friends, but it’s their newfound path towards lovers that displays true compassion, acceptance, trust, and honesty with each other. Their fierce friendship blossomed into an emotional dance of desire and intense love. I loved absolutely everything about this story 😍😍

Owen Parrish is living his dream as the star goalie for the Seattle Ice Hawks professional hockey team. The sexy pro athlete has a playboy reputation and is known for being a good time. He’s a hot commodity with the ladies, but doesn’t date, and doesn’t do relationships or complications.

Becca and Owen have been best friends for a long time. Of course she was best friends with his sister first, but they have their own special friendship. He’s a hot hockey hunk, and she’s the girl that works for the boss and knows all about hockey. So of course they become best friends! That all changes when Becca basically propositions him to get her back in the saddle after she was assaulted many years ago at college. Becca trusts him and that’s important considering her past.

Owen one night stands are his go to

This book was very sexy steamy and extremely hot. I adored bad boy owen. The way he protected Becca was very charming. Bad hockey god. Settle down he'll no.
Five hot stars for Becca and Owen ❤🔥!!!


I've never had enough of Kendall's books and this book is definitely one of my favorite from her.

What is better than a book with friends to lovers trope (and which is also sister's best friend trope)?


Because books like this one make your day better 😉!

"All the Way" is sweet and sexy book at the same time and it's one of the books I've read so quickly because of the storyline and great characters.

Becca and Owen.

We already met them in the first book ... and I was excited to see how they would find their HEA.

And it was cute and sexy ... I liked reading it.

BUT I also think it just wasn't the day for me and this story. It all felt too ridiculous. The whole idea of helping her in the first place and then leaving and coming back and no and yes and again and again. And his super weird sudden sexual Fifty Shades-ness. Too much.

Very disappointed in this book. I really enjoyed Justin and Becca’s story from book 1, but there was very little story here. It was ALL sex scenes! I like some story and character development with my sex, thank you. One sex scene after another, which were loooong and detailed, but not interesting, which is the most important part!! Any storyline between sex scenes was glossed over and rushed. In a word, it was boring. I kept reading, (but I had to skim a LOT) just hoping that something would hap ...more

I cannot tell you how happy Kendall Ryan has made me. She wrote Becca’s character flawlessly. It’s important to make sure that stories are real and relatable even when they are fiction. That people with circumstances are portrayed properly. This story was real. Becca was real. Her circumstances were real. Well done.

What are best friends for if we can’t ask them to help us navigate a serious circumstance in our lives? Becca asked and Owen delivered *swoon* Their story was sweet and poignant, sexy

I have been a longtime fan of Kendall Ryan and could not wait to jump on All The Way. I loved Becca and Owen and how delicious their chemistry was. Besides being a great combination of sports romance (hockey, anyone?) and a friends to lovers romance, this story was also emotional and sweet as we see a wounded heroine taking a chance on intimacy again. I loved the different facets of this story and how Ryan was able to successfully highlight each integral part.

I think I found my new favourite book by Kendall Ryan.
All the Way was such a fun and sexy book with imperfectly perfect characters and a story that is perfect for those that love a friends to lovers trope.

Owen is deliciously flawed and I love this sexy hot athlete.
Becca is sweet, smart and so much fun.

Gah! I love a good sports romance and All the Way was a fantastic addition to the Hot Jocks series. I really enjoyed reading Playing For Keeps, but All The Way completely stole my heart.

I am utterly enjoying this sports romance series and this book was so much better than the first! I freaking loved Owen and Becca. This was a friends to lovers with meaning and power. Their friendship was full of trust, reliability, respect, a true connection that only made their journey into a real relationship all that much better.

Owen completely won my heart. He was so sweet, patient and he just cared so much for Becca and just wanted to do what was best for her. He put h

Angsty, hopeful, and passionate!

All the Way, the latest novel in the Hot Jocks series, is a slightly more emotive tale about the scarred, hesitant Becca who after suffering an assault in the past is having a hard time moving forward, and the handsome, hockey stud Owen who is more than happy to help his best friend find her mojo again.

The writing style is seamless and sincere. The characters are patient, supportive, committed, and lovable. And the plot is a delightful mix of life, love, friendshi

OK.  Let me tell you that I finished this book within the course of the commute to and from work.  With time to spare.  So that's a total of about 90 minutes, give or take.  That's because I was hooked from page 1.

And having just put the book down, I can tell you that I think I have a little bit of an emotional hangover.  I wish that I had the words to describe in glorious technicolour, just how wonderful this book is.  I'm not sure that I can do it justice, other than to say that book like this

My reads from Kendall Ryan are slowly stacking up high and I'm loving it!

I loved Playing For Keeps and am enjoying this series so much. So when I got an early copy of Becca and Owen's story, you bet yourself I was super excited!

It delivered so much! Kendall Ryan has a way of ensuring that every read is fresh and new. It's always got something to suprise you when you least expect it and most of all it has heart with the right balance of heat!

I tried the previous book in Hot Jocks series, but I just couldn't get into it, and after a few chapters I just put it down. But this was a story I was not expecting from Kendall Ryan. For me it was such a wonderful, sweet, and real book. I loved Becca and Owen together. Their friendship was amazing, and the transition in to realationship was smooth and believable. I liked the low angst/not much drama in here.

All the Way hit me with ALL. THE. FEELS. Here I thought this romcom was going to be light and fun, and don’t get me wrong it was so much fun, but I was definitely not expecting the emotional punch that hit me. It was like “whoa, where did you come from?” These characters slayed me, they were everything I didn’t know I needed.

When Becca needs help with something after a traumatic experience, her mind goes straight to her best friend, Owen. He’s the only one who can help her and she trust

If you want a cute friends to lovers story with not much drama and some character development, this is it.

I loved how Becca overcame her past and took the decision upon herself of not letting it define her and how Owen supported her through it and showed her her worth ♥️

Liked this one much more than the previous story for sure!

All The Way is a best friend to lover romance. Becca and Owen have been friends forever and their relationship has always been platonic. Becca went through quite an ordeal several years ago and she has not quite able to get back on her feet in the dating department. Owen is a super star goalie for the professional NHL. Owen is known to be a player with no short of women falling at his feet. Owen is only interested in sex without commitment but at least he is honest about it. Owen got all the ski ...more

I wasn’t sure when I started this book if I was going to be a big fan of Owen’s. We got to know him a bit in the first book since he is both Elise’s big brother and Justin’s best friend, roommate & a player on his hockey team.

Owen ended up really surprising me. He is very much the alpha male but he has such a sweet caring side that I really didn’t think would be so predominant. The fact that consent is important to him was really sexy.

Becca is a really lovable, level headed
