Review Tour ~ xo, Zach by Kendall Ryan

Release Day: Jan 23, 2018

The first time we met was at a party.

Your ex arrived to show off the person he'd left you for last month, and you asked me to pretend to be your date.

I was more than happy to help. You were attractive, smart and witty--and that kiss we shared? It left me wanting you for days.

The second time we met was in my office on campus where we were both surprised to discover you were the new master’s degree student in poetry that I would be working with. You promised to be professional. I did no such thing.

The late nights and intense study sessions spent alongside you majorly throw me off my game. I want you, and I fight with myself daily over this fact.

I know I'm crass, that my sexual innuendos and dirty mouth annoy you, but I live for those two bright spots of color in your cheeks. If that's the only reaction I can get out of you, I'll gladly take it.

You hate Mondays so every Monday I slip an anonymous poem into your bag and your smile gets me through the week.

I think I'm falling for you, and I know it's wrong. I know that I'm only supposed to be your adviser and nothing more, but here's the thing. I think you're falling for me too.

Poppy Ellis is a woman with a dream and she's not gonna let anyone or anything stand in her way of achieving it.

Zach Austin just has to get through this year so he can make the big move.

What neither expected was a chance meeting turning their worlds upside down.

The more time they spend together, the deeper their connection grows. But being together isn't easy considering their academic careers and Poppy has a secret that ruin any lasting relationship.

Will they be able to find a way to make a long lasting relationship or will there be too many outside forces to overcome?

zo, Zach is a touching, heartfelt, sensual read that captives the reader's heart right from the start.

I love how Zach and Poppy don't rush things and take the time to really get to know each other. The slow burn is hot and oh so sexy. And when things combust... wow!

I admire Poppy's determination in everything that she does. She give it her all and doesn't let anything stand in her way. She could have given up her hopes and dreams after high school consider the turn of events that forever changed her life, but she didn't. She pulled on her big girl pants and made a plan and never gives up.

Zach is brilliant as well as handsome. I love that he doesn't mince words when it comes to expressing his desires to Poppy. Even while she is pushing him away, he can't stay away from her. When most men would go running after learning Poppy's secret, he takes the info in stride. He accepts all aspects of Poppy's life because that's how much she means to him.

The storyline of zo, Zach is sweet, enchanting, and completely swoon worthy. And I challenge you not to fall head over heals in love with Zach.

I would highly recommend zo, Zach if you are looking for a fun, engaging, passionate read that will take you on an emotional journey and leave you with a dazzling book hangover.
