This book blew me away! Gripping, riveting, heart wrenching, heartwarming… Once in a while, you come across a truly incredible book, Long Shot was that book for me. Not that I was surprised because this is Kennedy Ryan we are talking about. I have loved each and every book I have read by her, but this one may be her best book yet. I was truly amazed by the storyline, it was definitely not what I expected, and I loved that!
August and Iris are unforgettable characters, I was consumed by their story and couldn’t get enough of it. It’s deeply emotional, engrossing and dark at times, it’s not the story of an easy love. There are some pretty devastating parts that will bring a few tears to your eyes.
August West is a bright and outgoing pro ball player, with an amazing future ahead of him. He is incredibly talented, but he wants to be more than just a player. Success and fame can be fleeting and he wants more out of life. He knows Iris is the perfect girl for him, she is authentic, funny and smart. But he can’t have her, she is someone else’s girlfriend. August is a wonderful character, genuine, strong and yet so vulnerable. I admit I fell head over heels for this hero, he was pretty much perfect and made me swoon.
Iris, my heart shattered for her, she is the innocent victim of a violent narcissist, trapped in an abusive relationship. Her story of resilience and hope takes place over several years. Her connection with August is instant, they are kindred spirits. He can’t live without her in his life just as much as she wants to be with him. Iris is a character you become very quickly emotionally invested in.
Iris and August’s story of hope and unconditional love deals with some intense issues but it is so worth the emotional journey it takes you on. It’s an epic must-read that I can’t recommend enough!
