Review: Revelry by Kandi Steiner

Review Post

You know how sometimes you just get to an author over a lot of extra ways? For me it was L.A. Cotton, who wrote a #KUBedtimeStories. It landed me in a group, and after reading hers, I read Kandi Steiner's (HOLY SHIT, THAT WAS HOT!) and decided I needed to stalk her ALWAYS and FOREVER now. Good decision, too, because that got me the ARC I just finished. (Like literally, ten minutes ago...)

First, look at that cover (and no, I'm so not jealous she has an amazing cover like that...)


Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.

She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it’s official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren’t.

Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her.

Anderson Black is perfectly fine being lost.

He doesn’t care about the town’s new resident — he’s too busy fighting his own demons. But when he’s brought face to face with Wren, he can see her still-fresh wounds from a mile away. What he doesn’t see coming is his need to know who put them there — or his desperation to mend them.

Sometimes getting lost is the way to find yourself. Sometimes healing only adds a new scar. And sometimes the last place you expected to be is exactly where you find home.

My Review:

This is how I have to start, because MAN, this woman sure knows how to line up words to make you sigh right away. I mean, they are flowing and drawing you in, and enchanting you. They make you fall in love with all the troubled characters and WOW. Okay, enough about how well she writes. Let me talk about the book...

Wren is a woman trying to find her way back to herself and her passion. Hiding away in a cabin (JESUS, she's living my dream) she tries to find that. Instead though she finds Anderson... or rather he finds her. And believe me when I say, there are sparks right away. 

Anderson is broken and hurt, and I wanted to hug him all the time. Like seriously. He is one of those guys I want to sit down with and make hot chocolate for. It fixes everything. I loved watching him grow happier and less grumpy over time, and I also loved seeing how Wren tore down all his walls just by being herself. I mean, isn't that what we all want? Someone falling for us hard, just because we sing off-key and dance like no one's watching?

My first Kandi Steiner book got my right in the feels, all emotional and, again, sighing like crazy. For me it's a good book when I get book envy, as in I wish I could write like that, form sentences like that, play emotions like no other. I mean, just look at this:

"Anderson is a good man, he just has scars like all beautiful and tragic things in life." - Revelry, Kandi Steiner

Need more proof? 

It was like a mosaic: none of the pieces made sense individually, but when I took ten steps back and saw them all together, they painted a crystal-clear picture of the truth. - Revelry, Kandi Steiner

So, that might have been my first book by this incredible lady, but it certainly won't be my last.
