Queen Move by Kennedy Ryan
Release Date: May 26, 2020
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.
Queen Move was not what I expected. At all. I’m not saying this in a bad way, I was expecting a steamy second chance romance with dramatic moments and some angst. This story was so much more than that.
Kimba was an amazing heroine, the star of this story in my opinion. She was strong, feisty, brave and fiercely loyal to her family and friends. Ezra was charming, strong and intelligent. The romance between them was amazing, the true definition of soul mates. Since they were children, there was always a deep connection between them. The glimpses of their past showed how strong their bound was. This story was emotional and beautifully written. There were a few details regarding Ezra’s life in the present that bothered me but I think those details made this story feel so real.
Queen Move was unique and powerful and left me speechless. Almost nothing in it went the way I expected, it was frustrating at times but it was still amazing. In the end, Kimba and Ezra’s journey made a lot of sense. Love is messy. But I still wish Kimba didn’t have to go through so much… She was a fantastic character and I loved her! WHAT A QUEEN! What a journey.
