Think you know what it's like being a baller's girl?
You don't.
My fairy tale is upside down.
A happily never after.
I kissed the prince and he turned into a fraud.
I was a fool, and his love - fool's gold.
Now there's a new player in the game, August West.
One of the NBA's brightest stars.
Fine. Forbidden.
He wants me. I want him.
But my past, my fraudulent prince, just won't let me go

Review: Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan

My Thoughts…

Kennedy… Kennedy… Kennedy… what have you done to me??!!  This book.  HOLY MOTHER OF JOSEPH!!!  Talk about a book with all the feels!! If you are looking for a book to rock your world. To take you to the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows, you need to get Long Shot!! This book… I just have no words!  This was is just everything! This book is why I read!  This book just needs to be read!! Kennedy Ryan is courageous for taking on a topic like abuse and I so commend her for it!  I cannot even imagine the interviews, research, and then telling of a battered women.  It’s heart breaking but it’s a story that MUST BE TOLD!! Abuse is not ok and anyone who has been through a story like this I just want to give them a big ole hug.  Long Shot is a huge 5 star read and one of the best books I’ve read this year!  This is going on my best of 2018 list!

Have you ever had a moment in your life when you think back and question the decisions you made?  Iris story is much like this.  One night she met August, an up and coming college basketball player on the verge of becoming a NBA superstar. That night was magical. It was like they knew each other a lifetime.  But Iris and August story was not meant to be as Iris had a boyfriend, August’s rival Caleb.  Everything she felt with August is absent in Caleb’s relationship.  But she is loyal and knows her year long relationship is something you just don’t throw away because you have a spark in meeting someone once.

Years go by and Iris’s life is nothing as she imagined it.  She had dreams but sometimes things don’t always go as planned.  Iris never saw herself with Caleb for a longtime relationship but when she ends up pregnant, her world is about to turn upside down. She though she knew Caleb but now she is about to see a side of him she could never dreamt of.  He will become her worst nightmare.  Trapped in a abusive relationship, she feels like she has no hope and no end in sight.   Can the one person she met all that time ago be her salvation? You will need to read Long Shot to find out!!
