♛ Queen Move ♛ Kennedy Ryan ♛

The boy who always felt like mine is now the man I can't have…

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 can’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.

ARC received for an honest review

It is truth universally acknowledged that the Queen is the most important and powerful piece on the chess board.

And it is a truth that Kennedy Ryan is a queen when it comes to writing strong, emotionally driven stories with strong, take charge women.

And Kimba is the Queen of this story.

The reader can see Kimba and Ezra's friendship and love blooming from a young age, however life will get in the way of their forever.  My heart was wrenched out of my chest, and Ms Ryan slowly but surely put it back together piece by piece.

It is no always an easy coming together, but my heart was filled with hope . Hope the would find their way back to each other.  Hope they finally got their HEA. And I didn't even want to hope for one thing in case it jinxed it.

This is a wonderful slow burn that had me needing to get to the next page to find out what happened next, at the same time as I wanted to savour every last moment we had together.

I am looking forward to what Ms Kennedy gives us next.
