Editorial Reviews


"Long Shot is real life set in the rarefied air of the NBA, but this book is so much more than a sports romance. Instead of glitz and glamor, Ryan reveals the hard, ugly, behind-the-scenes world of professional sports that sadly, so many won't find hard to believe. Yet against a harsh and sometimes hopeless background, true love blooms under Kennedy Ryan's incredible prose." -- Amy Harmon, NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author

"Gripping and emotional, LONG SHOT is a heartbreakingly romantic tale about true love and inner strength. You will never forget it." --Kristen Callihan, New York Times and USA Today best selling author

"Long Shot is a devastatingly beautiful, unforgettable and incomparable journey that will stretch your emotions to the breaking point, and its happy-ever-after will leave you with a feeling of unrestrained joy deep in your chest." -- Mary Dube, USA Today HEA

"If you read one book this year, make it this one. And then give it to every woman you know." - Natasha, Natasha is a Book Junkie

"Kennedy Ryan tackles sensitive topics, but layers them effortlessly into a sexy sports romance. The result is a rich, deep story of loss and love, while delivering ALL the angst and feels. A must read!!" --Emma Scott, Amazon Bestselling Author 

"Satisfying and soul-gripping!" --Lucy Score, Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

"A raw, passionate, sexy, emotional rollercoaster." --Ilsa Madden-Mills, Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

"I had one OMG, WTF, HOLY CRAP, NO WAY, OH DEAR JESUS moment after another as I read this book...A MUST READ sports romance layered in heartache and steamy sensuality. It's a harrowing ordeal, a horrific account, a blissful romance, all woven together with the promise of hope in the end." -- Jessica, Angie & Jessica's Dreamy Reads

"There's nothing I can possibly say that will prepare you for this...Long Shot is its own entity, it cannot be compared. I've NEVER read anything like this. Ever." --Chele, 4 The Love of Books

"Long Shot is hands down my favorite Kennedy Ryan book...This story lifted me high and buried my soul at times, and the ride was powerful and poetic." --Amazon Bestselling Author, Ginger Scott

"It speaks to all women no matter their personal stories, no matter their beliefs. It's a hard truth and an eye-opening novel about true love and spirit juxtaposed against true evil and hardship. It's a redemption song, a comeback game, a deep and meaningful path to righteousness." -- Terilyn Reviews

"This story was brutal truth wrapped in hope, courage and unflinching love. It's a must read. It's a STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND READ THIS NOW kind of book. Don't hold your breath, this story will steal it from you." --J. Sterling, NYT Bestselling Author

"I can count on one hand the number of books that have rendered me speechless...But there are those books that just punch you right in the gut and grasp every little piece of come out a different person...After reading Long Shot, I am forever changed, for the better."  --Vanessa, Nessreads
