Think you know what it's like being a baller's girl?
You don't.
My fairy tale is upside down.
A happily never after.
I kissed the prince and he turned into a fraud.
I was a fool, and his love - fool's gold.

Now there's a new player in the game, August West.
One of the NBA's brightest stars.
Fine. Forbidden.
He wants me. I want him.
But my past, my fraudulent prince, just won't let me go.

*Some aspects of this story may be sensitive for some readers.

Wow!! So many emotions. So, this is my very first Kennedy Ryan book and it most certainly won’t be my last. I went into this book completely blind. I was scrolling through my list of books in my kindle library and the cover of this book caused me to pause.  I looked at the author and I was sold. I met Kennedy Ryan at a book signing once and she was the NICEST author and gave the best hugs. Then I noticed that based on the title it was a sports theme. I assumed it would be an average sports romance story. LET ME TELL YOU, I was NOT AT ALL prepared for Iris and August. This book was raw, dark, and at some points so real that I prayed things weren’t what they seemed. What a freaking ride.

I love Iris and her cousin Lo. Their relationship is so deep and what I consider true ride or dies. Even through conflict they would jump immediately to help one another.

August is what most women dream of in a man. He is seriously one of my favorite book men I have read in a really long time. His sincerity and patience with Iris and her situation, freaking swoon worthy.

I love the way Kennedy describes Louisiana. I have never been to Louisiana but have always wanted to go. This book seriously made me feel like I was there in Iris' grandmother's house waiting for the gumbo to be ready.

I’m rating this book with 5 stars because it was written so freakin good and captivated me the entire time, even when I wanted to throw my kindle across the room because of emotion overload. I highly recommend this book but will warn there are some parts that may be tough for some people to read. She slammed dunked this one. Sorry, had to have at least one basketball pun in my review.
