Book Review: QUEEN MOVE by Kennedy Ryan


The boy who always felt like mine is now the man I can’t haveโ€ฆ

Dig a little and you’ll find photos of me in the bathtub with Ezra Stern.
Get your mind out of the gutter. We were six months old.
Pry and one of us might confess we saved our first kiss for each other.
The most clumsy, wet, sloppy . . . spectacular thirty seconds of my adolescence.
Get into our business and you’ll see two families, closer than blood, torn apart in an instant.
Twenty years later, my “awkward duckling” best friend from childhood, the boy no one noticed, is a man no one can ignore.

Finer. Fiercer. Smarter.

Tell me it’s wrong.
Tell me the boy who always felt like mine is now the man I canโ€™t have.
When we find each other again, everything stands in our way–secrets, lies, promises.
But we didn’t come this far to give up now.
And I know just the move to make if I want to make him mine.



I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this book. Kimba, wow, a woman to aspire too. Obviously I got to know Kimba in the Kingmaker duet which was really good and was extremely excited when I heard that Queen Move was Kimba’s story.

This book is real! It’s the reality of so many people. I loved the realness of it. It’s not just a love story. It’s a story of life, of challenges, of proving yourself because you’re in the minority. A story of working hard. A story of going after what you deserve. And… a story of a love so strong, nothing can break it down.

Ezra and Kimba have restored my faith in love. Nothing will tear them apart. They will fight for their love. The love they had since the day they married each other at six years old.

Get the book! Read the story! You won’t be sorry.

Not when heโ€™ll eventually be moving on, and sheโ€™ll be staying behind.

But when Jersey suddenly finds herself in desperate need of medical care that she canโ€™t afford, Truck does the only thing he can think of to helpโ€ฆ he marries her.

Jersey has been struggling to keep her and her sister afloat ever since their dad was sent to jail. The pain she feels on a regular basis isnโ€™t anything she can stop to thinkย aboutย until she ends up at the E.R. in the protective arms of the one man who makes her pulse beat faster than the superheroes she worships.

When chaosย invades theirย lives, theirย temporaryย deal starts to crumble, leaving hearts and souls twined together in such a way that thereโ€™s little chance of escape without permanent damage.ย Unlessย they just surrender to it all and let love heal them both.

Fromย award-winningย author, LJ Evans, comes a novel inspired by Lady Antebellumโ€™s โ€œOceanโ€ aboutย resilience and love.ย You donโ€™t want to miss this slow burn, military romance.

ALL THE FEELS… that’s what this book did to me.ย  Had my emotions everywhere.

Jersey & Travis – I fell in love with him at “marry me”.ย  And I empathized with Jersey throughout the book.ย  She and I have so much in common and he was just the perfect Captain Coast Guard.

As usual LJ did not disappoint with this story.ย  It was beautifully written.ย  Has real life issues that isn’t addressed enough.ย  Has real love in it, and not the fairy tale type.ย  The unusual type.ย  The type that makes it real and makes you work at it.ย  The type we don’t believe we deserve.

Both these characters are broken in a sense.ย  Both feel responsible for the situation that they’re in.ย  Both feel like failures, even too each other.ย  And yet, they are both superheroes in their own right and perfect for each other!

I have read every one of the books in the Anchor Series and let me tell you, they keep getting better and better.ย  This author has the gift of telling stories that pull at your heartstrings.

Go! Read this book.ย  There’s love, sibling complications, a coastie to fall in love with and a comic loving heroine.

Book Review: Always Mine/Always Yours (Roommate Duet #6) Liam & Maddie by Kennedy Fox


Always Mine #1

College parties, beer, and one-night standsโ€”that was my life.

Now, I hunt down criminals, ethically or not, but if no oneโ€™s asking, then Iโ€™m not telling. Drinking and women are still included, though I canโ€™t seem to forget the girl who almost gave me her virginity. She wouldโ€™ve until I realized she was too young, and I wasnโ€™t looking to get thrown into jail.

In a twist of fate, weโ€™re reunited, except sheโ€™s no longer underage but still equally off-limits. After ignoring her relentless advances, she starts to wear me down. I only have so much willpower when sheโ€™s around, running her smart mouth and showing off her impeccable dance moves.

Just when my restraint starts to crumble, my poor choices finally catch up with me, putting us both in danger.

Thereโ€™s no easy way to explain why I betrayed her, but Iโ€™ll do whatever it takes to keep her safeโ€”even if it means breaking her heart

Always Yours #2

Rehearsals, leotards, and textbooksโ€”that was my life.

Dancing is all Iโ€™ve ever known, but when Liamโ€™s problems turn everything upside down, Iโ€™m thrust into a world I know nothing about. Secrets and betrayal changed the man Iโ€™ve fallen for and he isnโ€™t who I thought he was. Regardless, Liam is all Iโ€™ve ever wanted and though Iโ€™m struggling with my emotions, deep down Iโ€™d do anything for him.

When Liam admitted his true feelings, things finally fell into place. Now theyโ€™re falling apart. Saving our relationship is his top priority, but keeping him alive is mine. Corruption and power are their game and Liam is nothing more than a pawn. Playing by the rules wonโ€™t end well, but I canโ€™t let him fight alone this time.

Our happily ever after is so close I can taste it, but then it quickly crashes and burns, threatening to destroy us. Giving up on the love of my life isnโ€™t an option, but in the end I might not be able to save him.

ALWAYS YOURS is a slow-burn, intense romance wrapped up in a suspenseful beautiful love story. It’s book 2 in the Liam & Madelyn duet and must be read in order.

My Review

Well now…

I have waited for this duet since I read Mason’s & Sophie’s story MONTHS ago. Then on 7 January 2020, I received my pre-ordered copy of Always Mine and refused to read it until I received the second book. Why? Because I knew that Kennedy Fox would end book 1 with a cliffhanger and I would want to dive into book 2 immediately. And… that’s exactly what happened.

I loved how we got to see how they really met even after getting to know each of these two from the beginning of this series.

Maddie said she was going to break Liam down and boy did she. Liam knew exactly what he was doing with her and it all worked out in the end.

I especially loved how we still got to see the other characters we got to know from the previous duets as well and got to journey with them and watch them grow.

This book had me going through all the feels and I can only imagine what the authors were going through when writing it.

Maddie, the youngest of the Corrigan sisters. Liam the reckless one of the three friends. The just fit. They’re both carefree characters, it made sense that they would end up together. Their banter is hilarious. Maddie and her sassy mouth had me in stitches for the most part, but she had me in tears when she discovers how Liam really feels and the lengths he would go to protect her.

This is a slow-burn suspenseful romance that will have you turning the pages laughing and in tears.

My rating for this book is 41/2 / 5
