Long Shot (Hoops #1) Reviews
I’ve read every book from Kennedy Ryan and what characterizes her work is that she always goes big. Epic. In every sense of the word. It’s the same with Long Shot. She has a clear point of view with this story. She doesn’t hold back and goes with her characters where it hurts. Long Shot is brutal, raw and heartbreaking but it has to be cause it’s the truth given the topics this book centers around. Nothing is sugarcoated and the actions and choices that are made feel real and true to the charact ...more
What a great book! This was such a beautiful, heartbreaking story.
When Iris and August first meet their timing is off but they never stopped thinking about each other. So many things happened before they could finally be together, but that made their love story that much more powerful. I have so much respect for Iris. She literally went through hell, but she survived and came out stronger. August is so amazing! I love his tenderness and kind heart. He loves Iris deeply and unconditi ...more
All the Stars in the World!
This book was so much more than just an amazing read. This was an experience. An experience that at times made my heart ache. So many times, I had to put my kindle down and catch my breath. It felt too much sometimes. Too real, too raw. But this story needed to be told and Kennedy Ryan did a phenomenal job.

Kennedy Ryan doesn’t just write stories, she provides a reading experience with a rich, beautiful narrative and has once again blown me away with the sheer power of her writing. This author is not one to shy away from exploring the full depths of her characters and the world they find themselves in, and never has this been more apparent than in, 'Long Shot.' It’s raw, thought provoking, and edgy, and feels so very real and authentic in the telling ...more
What an absolutely wonderful, moving story by Kennedy Ryan! I got a quality story with plenty of plot, lots of drama, and more romance than smut. Exactly the kind of book I love. Exactly the kind of story that keeps me coming back for more.
August and Iris take you on a roller coaster of emotions throughout the book. I loved their story and I really loved how August stood up for her. The physical chemistry between them is good, but what really sold them to me as a couple is their emotional chemi ...more
“The Heart speaks in whispers”
Corinne Bailey Rae
This book is long 514 pages to be exact, but somehow did not feel that long, but it is a heart-breaking novel that touches your soul from the word go, I read this book in small steps as it broke my heart on some pages
I am not really one for sport novels, I do not like any ball game to be honest, that being said this book was different and hooked me, it is written over a few years, how August and Iris met in a bar in the beginning of the novel, an ...more
“The heart speaks in whispers, but sometimes by the time we listen, it’s too late.”
It’s been days since I finished reading this book and I still have NO IDEA how to put coherent words down. I’ll tell you this. I went into LONG SHOT by Kennedy Ryan completely BLIND! I didn’t read ANY of the early reviews and I barely read the synopsis, because once you see this author’s name next to the title, there really is no point. You’re gonna love it! Your mind is gonna be blown! It’s gonna be an EPIC EX ...more
I just knew going into this one, that there was gonna be angst...lots and lots of angst. But I am a though chick, so I figured I could hack it
Of course I overestimated my thoughness That's oke though... No worries ;)
This book contains the EPIC love story of August and Iris, which spans over multiple years. These two meet up one night in a bar, and share an instant connection. While Agust would love to explore this connection further....things are a bit different for Iris. She is already invo ...more
