Kennedy Ryan has become an automatic buy for me. Its the consistency for me! Despite the fact that there are loads of authors out here writing women’s fiction/romance, only a few do it really well with every book.

I could not wait to get my hands on this book and it did not disappoint. Keep reading for my honest review.


Contemporary Romance. But due to the complex issues tackled, I would even say it’s Women’s Fiction. Because this is not JUST a romance.


From the Book Jacket

Soledad Barnes has her life all planned out. Because, of course, she does. She plans everything. She designs everything. She fixes everything. She’s a domestic goddess who’s never met a party she couldn’t host or a charge she couldn’t lead. The one with all the answers and the perfect vinaigrette for that summer salad. But none of her varied talents can save her when catastrophe strikes, and the life she built with the man who was supposed to be her forever, goes poof in a cloud of betrayal and disillusion.
But there is no time to pout or sulk, or even grieve the life she lost. She’s too busy keeping a roof over her daughters’ heads and food on the table. And in the process of saving them all, Soledad rediscovers herself. From the ashes of a life burned to the ground, something bold and new can rise.
But then an unlikely man enters the picture—the forbidden one, the one she shouldn’t want but can’t seem to resist. She’s lost it all before and refuses to repeat her mistakes. Can she trust him? Can she trust herself?

My review of This Could Be Us: Spoiler Free


Let me just say that the beauty of this book wasn’t even the growing romance between Soledad and Judah. Even though omg you can feel the heat and the passion and the longing coming off the damn page. Its not the complex set of side characters that complement the book and make you care about them too. Its not even the beautiful way it’s written , even though there were times when i laughed out loud and times when I said YES. Passages I highlighted saying to myself: this right here! ( There is one section in particular when Soledad is arguing with her husband about the definition of work since she is a homemaker that made me almost throw my kindle like TELL HIM GIRL)

But it is the romance that Soledad begins to have with herself that ultimately makes this book what it is. It is a beautiful thing when a woman begins to understand her worth and love herself. Because only then will you find someone who will love you like you deserve.

This was a yes from start to finish.
