review || WEDNESDAY { blog tour } by Kendall Ryan

Kendall Ryan Books | May 21, 2016 | New Adult Romance


Hard-core fucking.

It’s not what I really want, but it’s all he has to offer. He’s filled with turmoil and heartache and regrets, but for two hours every Wednesday all he feels is me. How much I desire him, how desperate he makes me, how much I’d like things to be different between us. Real.

He used to be my best friend back before he got married. And now? Now, he’s a young widower. It would be wrong on so many levels to expect something more from him, so I give him what he needs. Dark, delicious fucking.

But I know I can’t keep this up. I’ve already given him my body, my soul. I want him to have my heart. It might drive him away forever, but that’s a risk I’m willing to take.

Wednesday is an angsty romp told from dual points of view. If you’re in the mood for something quick and dirty, you’ve found it. Proceed at your own risk.

{ review } .

This was a book unlike others Ms. Ryan has written. Written in almost a reflective way, we have a short novella of two once best friends. Like many male-female relationships, when Shaw started seeing Sam, and eventually marrying her, his friendship with Chloe dwindled away. Still, she was there for him when his world fell apart and Sam died, mere months after they were married.

When she offered her once best friend solace and a chance to breath, Shaw took her in a completely different way. After the guilt set in, though... Shaw continued to use Chloe for emotional and physical release, every Wednesday (and it's Wednesday for more than one reason).

I enjoyed this quick read. I enjoyed seeing the emotional turmoil and fears that Chloe had, but equally, I really enjoyed getting into Shaw's head and seeing his feelings, his hurts, his fears, his own guilt and grief -- and how they played off of, or around, or quite frankly were just the opposite, of Chloe's fears. I even enjoyed watching as both tried to move on from one another.

My only negatives for this particular story would be it felt like a novella. It was wordy in descriptions, almost too wordy in dialogue... and some of the transitions from one chapter to another were choppy and made me feel like I was missing something. Otherwise, this was an enjoyable read.
