"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
A FORBIDDEN LOVE SET IN THE EXPLOSIVE WORLD OF THE NBA...
Think you know what it's like being a baller's girl?
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.
He wants me. I want him.
But my past, my fraudulent prince, just won't let me go.
I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.
As soon as I read the prologue, I knew I was in for a crazy, emotional ride. I'm not even sure if my words can do this book justice, but I will do my best.
This book is hard to read at times. Take the author's note to heart. She tackles a serious subject and she doesn't do it halfway. She makes us face the reality that is the nightmare of Iris' life. I cried. I gasped in shock. I got angry. I wanted justice. And as hard as it was to read, I couldn't stop.
Beneath all the ugly is an amazing love story. It broke my heart in a million piece and the little by little it was put back together. Iris and August meet under less than ideal circumstances. Them being together when they first meet just isn't in the cards. August is a rising basketball player and Iris is a woman trying to find her place in the world.
This story is an epic one. An emotional one. I don't want to give anything away, but trust me when I say that this book is absolutely amazing. Kennedy's writing is gorgeous and this is by far the best book I have read this year. I highlighted a lot of this book because so many of the passages moved me. Whether it was August being ridiculously romantic or Iris being the badass woman she was, I couldn't put this story down. I have a hard time thinking that anything else I will read will even come close to this one.
