xo, Zach

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 w...

    I read this book in record speed because it's engaging, witty, and uses a few of my favorite tropes. Forbidden love and NA college romance. There are a few other that I won't mention to avoid spoilers, but just know that this book is chocked full of goodness. Is it absolutely perfect? Probably not, but it was perfect for me!

    Here's where xo, Zach shines - The secondary characters. Oh man, the neighbors in this one are hilarious. Interestingly enough, I actually had a college roommate who was very similar. Absolutely no filter or boundaries. Poppy's friends are a couple notches higher on the embarrassment meter than mine were. It was so much fun reading their interactions.

    The parents. Yeah, I know, parents are typically something mentioned as a highlight in a romance novel review. However, they're a huge win here. 2 words - Zach's mom!!

    The setup and progression of Zach and Poppy's relationship. I enjoyed the chase and every second of the result. Although there may have been one pushback too many, it was still very well done.

    The humor! Man, I don't think I've laughed this much reading a KR title before. I loved that! Some of these characters are so freaking inappropriate. I laughed my ass off!!!

    So, kudos to Kendall Ryan for writing another fantastic read! I highly recommend this one to readers who enjoy rom-com, forbidden romance, and embarrassing secondary characters.

    Zach can give me all the x’s and o’s he wants. What a delicious read!

    I’m not sure what was sexier: Zach’s intelligence, filthy mouth, or watching him with Poppy’s little boy. It was total swoon city from every angle—I couldn't put it down.

And how will Zach react to Poppy’s secret that she has kept from him?

    is a very sweet, slow burn charming romance. Kendall Ryan does a terriffic job in setting the scene and allowing readers to understand Poppy’s hesitation in having a relationship with Zach. And as for Zach, I adored him. He was sweet, very patient, and understanding. He made his intentions clear from the start and so that was refreshing to see a hero that wasn’t arrogant or cocky. So if you are looking for a sweet and playful romance that was deliciously filled with heart and sincerity then this book is for you.

    4.5 Stars. Zach is quite the catch and Poppy is a lucky girl. He’s sweet, charming, romantic and mature. I loved that he didn’t play games. Poppy was a strong heroine and a good match for him, even if her uncertainty was frustrating at times. Together, these two burn it up with great chemistry. The relationship felt organic and it progressed at a good pace.

    The plot was focused on the development of the relationship, although it starts with the catalyst of an ex. I liked that a lot. It minimized drama that feels overused at times. The writing was strong, with good prose and characterization. Humor was used well throughout the story.

    Safety: Heroine pushes the hero away.

    No others for the heroine. No rape or abuse.

    was just pure awesome, it was one of those books that made me feel really happy. Everything about this book just worked for me, and this is definitely the Kendall Ryan I know and love. I swooned big time, I laughed at lot, I felt an abundance of emotions and most importantly, I fell in love. If you are looking for a fast paced quick easy Sunday read, then check this one out.

    I actually don’t really want to say too much about the story line for this one as I don’t want to reveal any spoilers, so I will keep it short.

    Poppy attends a college party and unexpectedly sees her ex, who, let’s just say, was not the nicest boyfriend in the world. So what’s a girl to do? Find a fake boyfriend of course. So whilst hiding from before mentioned ex, Poppy goes on the hunt for the perfect and willing participant to play the part of her new boyfriend at the party.

    When a gorgeous woman approaches Zach at a college party asking him to pretend to be her boyfriend, he is all too happy to oblige. The connection that Poppy and Zach felt from their first encounter was instantaneous; they talked, they laughed and they kissed, one of those life altering explosive kisses.

    They parted ways that night with the romantic notion of, if it is meant to be, they will see each other again someday. Neither was prepared for when their next encounter would be. Zach spent the next few days thinking of nothing but Poppy, the kiss they shared and the way she made him feel.

    Zach is the academic advisor to the Masters writing program and he was not prepared to find out that the student he is advising is none other than the woman he can’t seem to get out of his mind, Poppy.

    One of the things I loved most about this story was the progression of Zach and Poppy’s relationship and the forbidden aspect of whether it is appropriate to succumb to the intense feelings that have awoken in both of them. The thrill of the chase really kept me fully engaged throughout. I loved the anonymous poems Zach would slip to Poppy and the way they made her smile. It was romantic and beautiful… definitely made my heart flutter.

    was such a fun, well written read that I read in almost one sitting. If you love your forbidden romcoms that will seriously make you laugh out loud, then I definitely recommend checking out Kendall Ryan’s

    is a sweet, sexy, fun, and forbidden read. It’s the type of book Kendall Ryan does best in my opinion. I love her books that are light and steamy, with just enough emotion. I always enjoy them and this is one of my favorite of her recent releases.

    Zach is an academic advisor. He’s not one to get involved with his students, but one night, he meets a girl. He’s enamored by her. For the first time in a long time, he could see his self wanting more. Poppy and Zach meet at a party,

    Zach is an academic advisor. He’s not one to get involved with his students, but one night, he meets a girl. He’s enamored by her. For the first time in a long time, he could see his self wanting more. Poppy and Zach meet at a party, and there is a connection. Then they see each other again on a Monday… in Zach’s class. Both are stunned at this revelation.

    Poppy takes her schooling very seriously. She has worked hard and overcome many obstacles to get where she’s at. So even though Zach is an amazing guy, she’s not sure if she can go there. Zach is persistent and romantic, and a hard guy to resist…

    The narrators for

    , Sebastian York and Andi Arndt make a wonderful duo, as always. They really bring these characters to life and make the audio book easy to listen to. Seriously, these two never disappoint. I would definitely recommend listening to this one!

    is the perfect combination of heartfelt, flirty, and steamy. If you enjoy slow burn romances that are a bit on the forbidden side, pick this one up!

    I fell in love with Zach within the very first page. It’s a conversation with his mother and you can tell a lot about a man by the way he deals with his mom. I could see that Zach was well-rounded, had a sense of humor, was incredibly respectful, and was an overall decent guy. His mom cracked me up and their interaction sealed the deal for me. Zach was the kind of man with whom I could put all of my eggs in his basket. He was a keeper. Just gotta watch out for his

    I fell in love with Zach within the very first page. It’s a conversation with his mother and you can tell a lot about a man by the way he deals with his mom. I could see that Zach was well-rounded, had a sense of humor, was incredibly respectful, and was an overall decent guy. His mom cracked me up and their interaction sealed the deal for me. Zach was the kind of man with whom I could put all of my eggs in his basket. He was a keeper. Just gotta watch out for his dirty mouth - exploding ovaries material right there.

    I’m obviously not talking literally here people. It’s just that Zach was the kind of guy you

    want to give you babies. He was sweet, smart, charming, romantic, and he had absolutely no problem showing his heart or his vulnerability. On top of all that he was a sexy, gorgeous adonis. C’mon, you’d be throwing yourself at him just as I would!

    Now granted, Poppy felt this way too but she wasn’t as willing to put herself in his hands. She wasn’t as eager as I was. And it was frustrating, a lot of the time. However, I understood her position. In fact, I’ve found myself in the same circumstance so I know how it is. But it was Zach. The quintessential ‘perfect man’. Well, as perfect as one can be. He wasn’t a serial dater, he was looking for ‘the one’, he had found her, and he was open to exploring forever with one person - Poppy. It took him much of this story to finally get her on board. Which made this entertaining to say the least.

    There was virtually no drama aside from the nonsense brewing in Poppy’s head. She was drama in and of itself. But that was it. Zach was funny and with his mom and Poppy’s friends, humor could be found throughout the plot. This romance was sexy and sweet and the ending gave me everything I could hope for.

    Poppy is a twenty-four-year-old single mother to a seven-year-old boy. Her ex dumped her for another girl. So she went to a house party to find another guy and get over her ex (her friend advice) but what she saw was her ex with his new girl, showing off! Well,

    Poppy is a twenty-four-year-old single mother to a seven-year-old boy. Her ex dumped her for another girl. So she went to a house party to find another guy and get over her ex (her friend advice) but what she saw was her ex with his new girl, showing off! Well,

    With a quick search around herself, she found the perfect, handsome, sexy guy she ever saw! And without knowing that he is her new adviser in the university, they kissed each other!

    It’s a sweet story with likable characters, not just main characters I liked the secondary ones too! I liked how Zach cared about Poppy and didn’t push her to do whatever he wants! And he didn’t let himself stop helping with her study just because he was attracted to her and she wasn’t ready to accept that! Poopy was so young when she had her son but she’s so strong, being a young mom, have a job and studding for you’re dream job, it’s a bit scary! I admire her! my only complaint was the slowness, it was a bit slow for my taste!

    Told in dual POV, 1st person. It’s a standalone novel and really well-written! Overall, I enjoyed it and hope you like it as well!

    The premise was cute but I'm just overall disappointed with what I have read. The characters felt weak and went from

    to

    in 0.000001 microseconds. I'm serious.

    Plus, I absolutely find it ridiculous how they only shared one kiss

    and a conversation

    and they were fucking obsess with each other after that? That they can barely think straight without imagining each other's body pressed against one another? Huh.

    Right after reading the first chapter which was Zach's, I immediately thought that it was a great start and that the MC was a breath of fresh air when it comes to this kind of books. But then he went to super boring and bland and

    It would have been loads better if the author had maintained the Zach in the first chapter up to the ending. Apart from the poetry talks, he did not really feel like an adviser at all. Also, the cover was so not for this book. Just saying.

    I did not really like Poppy from the very start. I did admire her courage to face an ex but I find her really immature and kind of dumb. It was very hard for me to imagine her as this

    She fucking became a teenage mom just because she believed her boyfriend had put on a condom and took his word for it! Then made it look like it's all the guy's fault! I know she was a teenager then but GIRL HAVE U NO EYES? And then there was this

    I'm not judging teenage mothers but my blood is just boiling with this woman.

    I find the writing style to be poor and clearly not my cup of tea. There was a lot of telling not showing and almost a whole chapter of info dump. The pacing was okay but it came to the point where I don't really care about the writing or the characters anymore.

    I was really excited to read this because I really like this kind of trope but then it's just a huge flop of a read for me. A better novel with this kind of theme would be
