Power. Passion. Betrayal.

Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition.

From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and will do anything to keep her.

Hate, hate, hate books that make you buy the next one to see how it ends. I will never read another book from this author!

- Fantastic job!5 star

I loved this story. The history of the Apache tribe and their struggles in our corrupted society. The crimes committed against humanity in general. Thank you for your beautiful love story.

- Cliffhanger4 star

Good book but not good enough to buy the second one

- Good book for free3 star

- More4 star

Really good book. Want more?!

- Absolutely Fantastic 👍5 star

I can’t believe what I just read. This book has it all and is so much better than others of this genre. It resonates. What makes it a standout? 1) A great, absorbing plot line that just gets better and better and keeps the reader engaged. 2) Witty, well written dialogue and characters of depth. 3) A romance between the two lead characters that is off the charts. I’m glad I discovered this author. Highly recommended.

- Predictable and unrealistic2 star

The book was too predictable, the character took ten years to forgive her lover and He waits for her. The last thing I predicted was that when Nix went on the trip something would happen in the foreign country and maxima will come to her aid. And I was correct! What I did not put predict was that this book will be a cliffhanger and after the torture of reading it! I refuse to purchase book 2.. I predict Maximum save the day, his brother win the presidency and they live happily ever after.

Soooo good I couldn’t put it down!

- a beautiful book5 star

this was a book. not some lame, fanfiction level short story in the free books section (although those are great too) but a real, deep but not too deep, wonderful, romantic, spicy NOVEL. i enjoyed this so much. the characters are dealing with things outside of their relationship, and although the time skips caught me off guard, it really added to the story and plot line. it was realistic in the sense where two people with huge dreams wouldn’t give up everything to be with each other, even though they really wanted to. and it went to show that if you are meant to be together, they’ll find their way back to each other. a very worthy read that you should 100000% give a chance.

- Timeline theme5 star

- Read now!5 star

❤️Wow, this book is absolutely amazing 🤩 so different from other books I read. I love this romantic story of complicated love yet simple love, coming from different backgrounds/world. Thank you! I can’t wait to read the conclusion in The Rebel King.

- This Story is Gorgeous5 star

This story is GORGEOUS. The words are magic and I was completely enthralled. “If a kiss has a color, this one is the muted shades of the sky overhead, a ménage à trois of midnight and indigo and moonshine silver. If a kiss has a sound, this one is the concert of our breaths and sighs and moans. If a kiss has a taste, it tastes like this. Hunger flavored with yearning and spiced with desperation.” Lennix and Maxim both want to change the world in their way. They want to make the world a better place but their paths are leading them in opposite directions. They are both bright lights for the future and together they are incendiary. Lennix is a bit of a revolutionary. She sees the struggles of her people and following in her mother’s footsteps does everything she can to shine a light on the injustices. “I don’t know how to name the color of her eyes—have no idea what I should call them. No way are they just gray. They are silver eyes. Not just the color, but the metal. Tough and tried and smelted beyond her years into this indescribable hue. Metal and mettle.” OMG that cliffy!! I am so glad we don’t have long to wait for book two but really I want it NOW! -5 Stars!!-

- Intriguing and Enthralling5 star

I love how Kennedy Ryan incorporates important and timely themes! Lennix is awe inspiring in her convictions and identity. Maxim is an independent spirit. I love them!

- Loved this book!5 star

These books were amazing! I always end up learning from her books. These books were truly beautifully written. I loved that Maxim supported her, and championed her. He let her fly. I loved how driven Maxim was in every part of his life. This book also crushed me. I didn’t see the event coming at all. It took a hold of my heart and squeezed. It was truly a ride that had crazy ups and downs. Maxim’s father really took a sharp turn also. I loved that he and Maxim found each again. I could truly see her. My favorite part was by Lennix. “Every morning I wake up and live with purpose, decide to make this a better place, or decide not to just live for myself, but to help those in greatest need, Mama lives on. I am her harvest.” I could keep on and on about these books. Kennedy Ryan is such a gifted author. I wish I could live in her books. I would highly recommend Kennedy Ryan and all of her books.

- This Book is Amazing5 star

We are the sky and the sea, and the horizon is where our hearts meet. Every part of that world is made by and from and for just us two. Read. Devoured. Inhaled. This book set a path straight to my heart, and is holding it hostage. Kennedy Ryan has a way of crafting words, of breathing life into characters, that make them so real, so important. There doesn't seem to be any topic that she can't write in such a way as to transfix and transport the reader into the story, and she has outdone herself with this one. I was hooked from the very first page of THE KINGMAKER. Lennix and Maxim will make you believe in soul mates, two people drawn together, against all odds. They are a couple that shouldn't work, but hope and love overcome, as they do. And, yes, their story is unfinished here, but these two are strong, stronger than distance, stronger than passing time, stronger than the forces that want to keep them apart. I can't wait to see what Kennedy has in store for them, because it is going to be epic.

- Phenomenal read!5 star

Phenomenal! I absolutely love Kennedy Ryan’s writing style, it’s poetic and with purpose. A underlying message of injustice and entitlement. You feel all the feels with these beautifully written characters. This storyline will take you on a journey of fighting for yourself and your beliefs while navigating the obstacles that life is. Maxim and Lennix’s chemistry is instant and palpable.The angst is so real that you feel it and you can’t help but root for them. That ending will leave you BEGGING for more! An absolute must read!

This book was well written. The culture was cover with respect with a little insight to what it is like for native Indians.

Addicted to ebooks - Cliffhanger2 star

Well written but with a huge cliff hanger, something I hate in books.

Chloe~Bibliophile90 - A must read!!5 star

Wow! What An amazing story! That cliff hanger though!!!! Can’t wait to read what happens next. This story was written so well. It flowed from the start to the end and kept me wanting more. A must read!

Tangled Olive - Liked the story3 star

3 stars because there’s way too much repeating and story did not need 2 books. A standalone would have made it a really good read.

DBookworm18 - Love strong heroine leads !5 star

When Kennedy writes her stories, there is no doubt she writes with an un-believable amount of passion, whatever the storyline is, it is always thoroughly researched and explained in detail. As well as an enjoyable reading journey, a story you will fall In love with, a story that will be left imprinted in your heart, for me, they are educational, the topic covered within the plot are always meaningful, and based on events that no one else covers. They always have me opening my eyes and broadening the mind and opinions on things I know little about. Always so much more than a love story, although the love is always explosive and powerful, its electric and the heat is like an inferno. So much more than a sizzling chemistry, Kennedy’s characters always have a rare connection that runs deep. One of my favourite parts about stories from this talented lady is the female lead and Lennix is no different – she’s fierce, strong and determined and one hell of an extraordinary woman who is inspiring! I wasn’t sure what to expect apart from I knew Kennedy would delivery nothing but an amazing story which without doubt she did, But this story also took me by surprise. An emotional journey that’s left me craving for book 2!

Manbunlove - Tingles everywhere!5 star

I’m still tingling from this amazing book. I knew, just knew from the very first chapters that Lennix and Maxim would have my heart. Oh she is magnificent. Age 17 an activist like little Greta Thunberg single handedly trying to save our beautiful planet. Lennix is strong in her conviction, powerful in her words. A champion of her people. She has my total respect. Maxim has the same conviction. The same power. The same passion. And that man, as far as first dates and first kisses go, he broke the mould. He reshapes what best in class should be. He raised the bar to the heavens. Men/women do you best. Be like Maxim. Plot was perfect. I screamed at the book. Screamed at Kennedy. I do love it when I feel like I’ve been dragged by a truck for a mile, had a refrigerator dropped on my head and had dynamite thrown at me by a road runner. Meep meep! God it was good. Tingles! Bring on book 2 please.
