Editorial Reviews


"Long Shot is real, raw, emotional and powerful. There are only a handful of books that have come along in my lifetime that I KNEW would stay with me forever, and this is one of them. My top read of 2018 so far." -- Kandi Steiner, Top 10 Amazon Bestselling Author

"There are sports romances and then... there's Long Shot.  Unflinching, challenging and powerful, Long Shot transports readers from the highest highs to the lowest, most harrowing lows...This book will wreck you and then restore you.  Kennedy Ryan writes with confidence and skill, capably guiding this difficult, complicated novel to its terrific, hard-earned happily ever after." -- Em, All About Romance

"Long so delicious and so important...Basically, it's proof of what romance can be at its very best." -- Sarah MacLean, NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author

"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

"Every once in a while, a book comes along and takes you on an emotional journey you know you'll never forget. Through pain and injustice to hope and healing, Kennedy Ryan's Long Shot has touched my heart. This book delivers a powerful and important message all while re-affirming this reader's belief that love will always prevail." - Devney Perry, 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

"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

"Long Shot...obliterated my heart. It scratched at my soul. It boggled my mind...Kennedy Ryan will break hearts and open up minds with this unique and angst-filled love story. She will call upon the deepest part of you and will request that you be brave and of the BEST of the year." -- Shayna Renee Spicy Reads

"Soulful, deep, and steamy, Long Shot riveted me from page one." -- Rachel Blaufeld, Author of Verite

"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 could not wish for a more incredible heroine to recommend to every reader in the world. I hope that every 18 year old woman out there reads this book and sees an example of how this can happen to anyone, and that you can have a good life after." -- Kristen Kranz, Hypable

"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

"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

"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

"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

From the Author

She is a wife to her lifetime lover and mother to an extraordinary son. She has always leveraged her journalism background to write for charity and non-profit organizations, but enjoys writing to raise Autism awareness most. A contributor for Modern Mom Magazine, Kennedy's writings have appeared in Chicken Soup for the Soul, USA Today and many others. The founder and executive director of a foundation serving Atlanta families living with Autism, she has appeared on Headline News, Montel Williams, NPR and other media outlets as an advocate for families living with autism.
