5 “Let me protect you” Stars

Books like Hook Shot are why I read. An author’s ability to pull my inside the world they’ve created is always impressive. What Kennedy Ryan achieves is something beyond that. I want to live in this world, be friends with these characters, hang out with them on the weekends. The main, as well as, secondary characters are bold and vibrant. The story is poignant and so damn beautiful my heart hurt. I’m still all up in my feelings.

What I loved most:

Lotus, hands down is one of the best characters I’ve read. She’s small in statue, but larger than life. Her spirit shines. She’s real and relatable. I love everything single thing about her. How bold she is, yet vulnerable and struggling. She’s a beautiful contradiction – a rare and beautiful phenomenon. I say “phenomenon” because I’m completely boy crazy. Romance novels, for me are all about how attracted I am to the male lead, but Lo completely steals the show.

“My beloved is mine and I am his,”

That’s not to say that Kenan is in any way a slouch. Nothing could be further from the truth. He’s a man in love with a woman. And gah, what an amazing man he is. Strong, alpha, complicated, and sweet. PURE PERFECTION!

It’s a Kennedy Ryan novel — so do I really have to say the story, writing, and plot are Perfect? Cause they are. Her writing and character development are some of the best I’ve seen in this genre. I know with certainty that if I pick up a book she’s written, I will go on a journey that will leave me with the all the feels. And that’s exactly what she’s delivered in Hook Shot.

I could gush for hours….

Seriously, I really could, but I’ll just simply state, Read This Book! It has my highest recommendation.

Hook Shot – Kennedy Ryan


Hook Shot - Kennedy RyanDivorced. Single dad. Traded to a losing squad.
Cheated on, betrayed, exposed.
My perfect life blew up in my face and I’m still picking up the pieces.
The last thing I need is her.
A wildflower. A storm. A woman I can’t resist.
Lotus DuPree is a kick to my gut and a wrench in my plans
from the moment our eyes meet.
I promised myself I wouldn’t trust a woman again,
but I’ve never wanted anyone the way I want Lo.
She’s not the plan I made, but she’s the risk I have to take.

A warrior. A baller. The one they call Gladiator.
Kenan Ross charged into my life smelling all good, looking even better and snatching my breath from the moment we met.
The last thing I need is him.
I’m working on me. Facing my pain and conquering my demons.
I’ve seen what trusting a man gets you.
I. Don’t. Have. Time. For. This.
But he just keeps coming for me.
Keeps knocking down my defenses and stealing my excuses
one by one.
He never gives up, and now…I’m not sure I want him to.
