    First and foremost, I really want to emphasize that this is a book about abuse and what it is like to be in a very dangerous and abusive relationship. MAJOR trigger and content warnings for a lot of graphic rape, stalking, being trapped, and a lot of very graphic physical, emotional, a...

    I?ve commented a few times as I?ve read this book that it is nothing like I expected. Nothing like I expected in a good way. It showed me a completely different style of Kennedy Ryan?s writing. And it was stunning, beautiful, and tragic At times Long Shot was difficult to rea...

    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. Lo...

    4.5 When I read Grip by Kennedy Ryan last year, I used the word "important" to describe it. If I had to use one word to describe Long Shot, I would use the same one. This book helps give a voice to millions of people that suffer and are judged by others that have never gone through ...

    I think that the saying never judge a book by its cover apply so well there. I genuinely do not think that I can find the right words to describe how this book made me feel. I should have known better? I should have known that as far as Kennedy Ryan is concerned, she never writes...
