Think you know what it’s like being a baller’s girl?
You don’t.
My fairy tale is upside down.
A happily never after.
I kissed the prince and he turned into a fraud.
I was a fool, and his love – fool’s gold.

Now there’s a new player in the game, August West.
One of the NBA’s brightest stars.
Fine. Forbidden.
He wants me. I want him.
But my past, my fraudulent prince, just won’t let me go

This is it. This book is the THE ONE. This is the book you need to read. After I was done, I literally went “oh my God…I have been through what feels likes a lifetime of emotions and it was profound, painful, frustrating, horrifying and beautiful”.

I can’t emphasis to you how much you NEED to read this book. Long Shot is a beautiful forbidden love story but it has so much strength.

I am bawling my eyes out as I write this review because Iris is amazing. Her strength, resilience, sacrifices and love is something that’s hard to explain yet you find comfort knowing that there are women out there like her. As a women, I can’t help but be proud of the fact that we are strong and the same time be mortified knowing that there are some women out there in this world, at this very moment going through a tough time.

August. Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the man of all our hopes and dreams, August West. He is the pillar of support, the pillar of strength, the epitome of love and dedication and I loved him.

I loved the story of August and Iris… Their story is beautiful and heartbreaking.

Kennedy Ryan has written a beautiful book here …. it’s captivating, real and hopeful. She has written a book filled with so much soul.

To be honest, the story of Iris Dupree hit a little too close to home and reading this book was like the boost of strength and gratifying clarification one needs in times of doubt. Every single inch of this book is pure gold…pure words of very aspiration, every promise and every desire you every hoped for.

I know for a fact that this review is significantly insignificant to express how much I loved this book but  I hope you read and love it as much as do.

Iris and August’s story will leave you breathless. It is gut-wrenching, emotional and I can guarantee that it will change your life forever.
