From the Inside Flap
He straightens up, pushing off the door, and I instantly miss his closeness. His perplexed eyes probe mine, and he rocks back on his heels. "I don't know what I'm doing here except I like it."
"I like it too." I fist a hand in his shirt, reeling him back in. "Don't first dates usually end with a goodnight kiss?" I arch a brow, attempting to drown out the stampeding butterflies careening around my chest, praying he doesn't notice how my entire body is trembling at having him this near.
"I wouldn't know." His gaze fixes on my mouth. "This is the first date I've ever gone on."
I blink repeatedly, staring at him in shock, trying to find the lie behind those words but only finding truth. "Are you seriously telling me that I'm your first date at age twenty-three?"
"That shocks you?" He places his hands on my hips.
"Yes," I truthfully reply. "How does that even happen?" He is gorgeous and charming and I know he's had girls crawling all over him.
"Never met a girl I wanted to ask out on a date."
My heart swells behind my ribcage. "I'm honored you chose me, and I hope it lived up to your expectation."
He clasps one side of my face in his large palm. "I didn't know what to expect, beyond getting to know you a little more, and it more than lived up to that." His eyes lower to my mouth, and his pupils darken with blatant desire. "I'm giving you that goodnight kiss now," he adds, his voice thick with lust, before his mouth descends upon mine.
Time stops. The world around us no longer exists. There is only the touch of his hand on my face, the feel of his hard length pushing against my stomach, and the hypnotic taste of his lips as his mouth moves skillfully against mine.

These Kennedy men and their loves have been THROUGH IT. But no one, perhaps, as much as Kent. His story is unexpected, emotional, riveting, and haunting. This book will rock you- unsettle you, but it will also move you. Because for nine books we’ve blindly watched this character self-destruct, watch him unravel and destroy relationships and cause others pain. While every other Kennedy has found security and stability- found PEACE and contentment- Kent has been standing in the dark, drowning in pain and secrets. Everything we knew about him is wrong- the facade of the womanizing jerk, the partying antagonizer, the hateful and hurtful anti-hero is shattered by this story. And in doing so, Siobhan shatters a piece of us, too.
Kent and Presley are the embodiment of the redemptive and rehabilitative power of unconditional and compassionate love. How love can save and heal. Kent is an undisputed jerk- he knows it, we know it, his family knows it. Heck, even Presley knows it. But Presley awakens something in him- gives him a light, some hope, some freedom. In wooing her, we see the real Kent, as he lets her in, he lets us in too. And this is not a Kent we know- a sweet and vulnerable man with so much heart, a man more fragile than we could ever realize. He’s charming and considerate- the type of man who writes meaningful love notes and sends flowers. A man so easy to love you wonder how no one could see this version of him. And Presley? She’s just as magical- I loved her instantly. This woman, too, has been through it. She’s resilient, compassionate, and SO very loving. But she, too, is fragile...she too has masked pain. Both of these characters are so tragically lonely- surrounded by loving people but somehow entirely alone. Everyone around them has somehow failed them. Until each other- until the love jars them so thoroughly that it gives them hope. Peace. Light. The true connection that both have them have been robbed of their entire lives. And for Kent, oh that hurt my heart- because this amazing family, this beautiful group of men and women I adore, have missed seeing him entirely. And I did, too. Both of these characters are so brave, so beautifully broken, so sweet and courageous. My heart swells with love for them.
What perhaps is the most captivating about Siobhan’s narrative approach is how she contrasts Presley and Kent’s romance with their inner turmoil. There is a beautiful juxtaposition of the sweet and light with the dark and disturbing. The love story here? It is easy- perhaps the easiest we’ve read in the Kennedy series. These two fall fast and quickly for each other- authentically slipping into an easy familiarity, a connection sweet, and pure, and blissfully grounded and mature. There is such a marked lightness, a simplicity to their coupling. Of course, that doesn’t change their baggage- Presley is scared of getting hurt by the notorious playboy, and she has her own past pains. And Kent, oh, sweet Kent just doesn’t want to mess this up- he wants to be WORTHY. But their connection is so electric, so intimate and TENDER- they can’t help but be consumed by it regardless of their fears and turmoil. They jump in so vulnerably, but so naturally. For the first time ever they can just BE. This is chemistry somehow intense and gentle, fierce and soft- they make each other feel it all. And we feel it, too. Siobhan give us that peace, that achingly beautiful sweetness, and then she shrouds us in truths that hurt, painful realities and experiences. The dark “Give me your truths, Kent. Even if those truths hurt. At least it will be real.” And Siobhan gets real- unflinchingly so- she gives us the truths. And they are not easy- they are raw. They hurt. And what was a sweet and innocent love now becomes dangerous to them both- because they unexpectedly find aspects of each other’s lives triggering. Pushing them to do something neither has been able to do before- confronting their pain. And only their love can make it safe to do that- give them the courage.
But Siobhan also shows us that the love of another is not enough on its own- not if you don’t love yourself. Both characters are drowning in aspects of themselves. Alone in the violent waters that have engulfed them. Their connection is so powerful, so catalyzing that it pulls their heads out of the water. Their love inspires survival, is the proverbial life vest in the water- but even so, when you’re drowning you have to be the one to grab the vest. You have to want to be saved, to be willing to save yourself. If not, you still drown. And sometimes you have to break completely before love can glue you back together- before you're ready to reach for survival. THIS. OH THIS. This is what makes Kent and Presley’s story so impactful- the parallel journey of two people sweetly and easily falling in love right alongside the turbulent, painful, and challenging journey of those same two people desperately battling to save themselves, fighting to be brave enough to work on their own stuff so that their hearts can fully belong to each other. Being whole with someone else means also being whole with yourself. Siobhan is giving us a story about one of the most courageous and bravest acts we can take as humans- facing ourselves. It isn’t just surviving life’s tribulations that make us brave, although certainly that alone is magnificent. But for Kent and Presley the greatest act of bravery is doing the self-work it takes to THRIVE despite their adversity. To heal. That is what makes them “truly brave.”
That journey is the reward. Kent and Presley have a love so epic that it rebuilds them, but it also reshapes them. This isn’t just about the two of them putting each other back together- this is about both of them inspiring each other to change how the pieces are assembled. The phoenix rising from the ashes. Being reborn. REFORMED. And you can’t help but feel a little be reformed yourself for having walked this journey with them.
I can not believe it is time to say goodbye to this menagerie of amazing characters. This dramatic, over the top, intrusive and angsty family that I am so addicted to. But I can’t help but marvel at how Siobhan has let this story come full circle. Back to its roots. This whole series hasn't really been about the drama, that soap operative existence of the Kennedy’s- because the drama doesn’t matter. It doesn't define them. What does is how this family grows, evolves, and comes together to survive and thrive despite it. How they figure out how to love each other, and themselves, just right. And in this world, love isn’t always timely, or easy, or neat or normal, but it is restorative, it is liberating. And, most importantly, it is brave. Thank you, Siobhan, for their magic.
PS- this didn't fit anywhere else in this review, but I can't not say that the triplets have now completely stolen this series for me! And this story, this is all of theirs. I adore them.
I also can’t write this review without mentioning his love interest, Presley, who also hasn’t had it easy, and is determined not to end up a notch on Kent’s bedpost. However that Kennedy charm is hard to ignore, but Presley gives as good as she gets and I think she’s one of my favorite Siobhan heroines.
I still don’t think I have the right words to convey how this story made me feel. This book is packed full of emotions. I swear, I felt like I was riding some highs and some extreme lows while reading Kent’s story. I don’t want to give much away, but I will say, I wasn’t prepared for Kent’s story, and how much I would end up loving him.
I always appreciate that Siobhan isn’t afraid to write on dark topics, and she handles it in such a delicate but real way. This story is raw and full of angst and Siobhan completely nailed it, and I don’t think I could have asked for a better ending for the Kennedy boys.
Kent is the perfectly damaged and broken book boyfriend. He’s young, hot, reckless and has no conscience about his behaviors, or so it seems. He’s just so unapologetically angry at the world and is out to punish everyone, even those who can’t understand why. My heart just bled for this miserable misunderstood bad boy.
I’m so grateful that Siobhan chose to do Kent’s story last, because I think as we read each brother's story leading up to this book we got to see glimpses of the paths of destruction he left in his wake. For years he suffered, but definitely never in silence. He was a tsunami of anger and resentment at the world, ready to unleash his fury onto anyone at any given time and we needed to see that build up of madness to really appreciate just how much of a transformation we see in his character. It was truly extraordinary.
Presley is gorgeous and sassy and at first wants NOTHING to do with playboy Kent. But Kent can’t help to be drawn to the fiery bartender and wants nothing more than to own her body, but who knew she would end up owning his heart. This beautifully broken girl, this phoenix who has risen from the ashes of her grief and put herself back together again after tragedies from her past is everything he never knew he needed and all that he wants most in the world. She is strong, she is courageous, she is everything and more. She is the picture of perseverance and the perfect heroine for our Kent. But can our Presley save Kent when it seems like he doesn’t want to be saved? Or will he destroy her in the process?

This fantastic romance is going to take you on a roller coaster of feelings complete with loop-de-loops and backwards crawls! Reforming Kent is a must Read when you just need a good release of the build up of tears that can only come with an epic book hangover kind of therapeutic cry!
🔥🔥🔥🔥- Hot Hot Dog y’all!! Kent and Presley could not be any freakin hotter. They are absolutely smokin!
🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No cliffhanger!
🔫🔫Trigger Warning- This book contains subject matter that could be a trigger for some folks. I’m not going to give specific spoilers. I will just say both of these two have been through some stuff and it’s not always easy to read about it, but how the characters come out in the end was so important to their journey. If you have any specific questions please feel free to PM me.

I never thought I could love Kent they way I have loved his brothers in their books. But he is close to my heart in more ways than one. He grows in the story and we see a side of him we haven’t seen in the previous books.
This story has everything you expect from a Siobhan Davis book it’s romantic it has dark moments and it has a couple who work both together and apart to fix the parts of themselves that they couldn’t fix alone. Kent takes a stand and faces up to his past and finally tells his family the truth.
You will use up the box of tissues whilst reading Kent’s story and you will definitely need a hug by the end of it. I’m now seeing Kent in a new light and I love his heart, his strength and his willingness to open up when it’s hard.
Thankyou Siobhan for bringing this family into the world and drawing us into a world so full of love and compassion. I am truly sad that this is the last of the Kennedy books but you definitely ended this series in the right way, Kent’s was definitely the story that needed to be told last because it forced the family to sit and talk to open up to one another about things that are hard to deal with.
Presley is such a beautifully crafted character with such strength, resilience and heart, she is the only one able to stand up to Kent and capture his imagination and attention you can see it from moment one...
This book ripped me to shreds and kept me going back for more .
Don't be frightened to use that Do Not Disturb sign you always keep handy, along with tissues, chocolate and all other creature comforts that help you get through...
As always expect the unexpected from Davis especially with the Kennedy world. I am absolutely 100% gutted we have to leave them there but at least we know the boys are in a good place....
I was lucky enough to receive an Arc of this story.
