Review Tour: XO, Zach by Kendall Ryan

The first time we met was at a party.

Your ex arrived to show off the person he’d left you for last month, and you asked me to pretend to be your date.

I was more than happy to help. You were attractive, smart and witty–and that kiss we shared? It left me wanting you for days.

The second time we met was in my office on campus where we were both surprised to discover you were the new master’s degree student in poetry that I would be working with. You promised to be professional. I did no such thing.

The late nights and intense study sessions spent alongside you majorly throw me off my game. I want you, and I fight with myself daily over this fact.

I know I’m crass, that my sexual innuendos and dirty mouth annoy you, but I live for those two bright spots of color in your cheeks. If that’s the only reaction I can get out of you, I’ll gladly take it.

You hate Mondays so every Monday I slip an anonymous poem into your bag and your smile gets me through the week.

I think I’m falling for you, and I know it’s wrong. I know that I’m only supposed to be your adviser and nothing more, but here’s the thing. I think you’re falling for me too.

xo, Zach

out of 5 stars

I try to stay away from contemporary romance, especially if it appears the hero is a “bad boy.” However, Kendall Ryan has proven that she can not only write characters that are as interesting as they are dynamic, but also a story that is both engaging and fulfilling. Not to mention, Ryan is a master at chemistry. The pages practically caught fire any time Poppy and Zach were in the same room! Zach? Quite possibly one of the best heroes I have read in awhile. Thoughtful, sexy, romantic, and confident in his wants, Zach is likable from the very beginning. Poppy, however, can be frustrating at times with her wishy-washy attitude. I can understand her indecision, but after awhile it just because exasperating!’

Ryan once again proves herself a skilled writer of the contemporary romance genre. You definitely don’t want to miss her latest novel.
