The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan

This book was a whopper. I swear each chapter I was like, I CANNOT get more addicted to this. But I did. I got completely addicted to it. The characters and the story? All of it was absolutely top notch. I swear this woman cannot write a novel that isn't perfection. This novel is like second chance love meets Scandal meets? I don't know. Another movie I can't think of the name of. But it was amazing. I fell absolutely in love with not only the first time the character met, but the end of book as well. SO much happens with this read. You start feeling one way and then as the book progresses you have all the feelings and not all of them are good feelings. The blurb tells you the jest and I don't want this review to be a summary of the read. I want you to know how I was feeling while I was reading because for me that's what draws me in. I want a read that leaves me so full of emotion, a week later I can still tell you how much I loved it.
