Sandra's Review

4 Stars

Hearts are Like Balloons is a standalone YA novel. It is also the first book I have read by Candace Robinson and i am surprised that it is her first contemporary romance. She did a great job and if she writes another one, I would definitely read it. I am not so much a fantasy fan but I am sure those are great too if you are into the genre. Anyway…back to this book.
At almost seventeen, May’s life changes drastically. After a loss, she finds love. She might be young but the love is intense, fun, and life-changing. From the moment she met Nico, she knew he was going to be something special. But, the high of being in love doesn’t last long enough and she becomes lost once again. Will she be able to find herself again? Found that kind of love again?
Yeah. That was super short. Especially if you follow my reviews. I don’t want to say much since there is a lot of story in between. I will say that it’s an emotional ride over 10 years times in May’s life. I definitely cried a few times. I felt for her and Nico. They are young when it starts out but they are also very mature and go through things nobody should have to.
Overall…it’s a great story of finding yourself, love, and friendship. The characters are lovable and real. I only gave it a four star because I think it could have been even deeper than it was. But overall, Candace did an awesome job of giving us a wonderful story that both broke my heart and warmed it.
Quotes:
It’s more than a kiss. It’s a rain dance filled with twirling, rain, lightning, and storms.
“Are you crazy? This is our night, and we are going to own it.”
“What if that boat sinks?” I groaned.
“Then I’ll toss you a life jacket, and we’ll have to swim to shore.”

Release Date: 30 May, 2017

Blurb:
Nothing or no one will keep them apart…

Kyler Kennedy is in the wind.

Shocked and upset, he has taken off on a solo mission—to track down his mom’s ex and demand answers.

Faye understands what it’s like to have your world turned upside down. Determined to support her boyfriend, she gives chase. Yet nothing could prepare her for the ugly truth. Ky has always been plagued with inner demons, and as he falls apart, Faye finally discovers what he’s been hiding from her—from everyone.

When serious accusations arise, Kyler’s future hangs in the balance. But Kennedys stick together in times of crisis, and they rally around him now.

At least there is nothing to prevent Faye and Ky from being together. They go public with their relationship, but not everyone is thrilled for them. Enemies reappear, and fresh battle lines are drawn, but Faye is ready to fight back.

No one is taking her new family from her.

Especially not a manipulative ex.

With time running out for Kyler, Faye takes matters into her own hands.

But when you play with fire, you risk getting burned.

Sandra's Review

5 Stars

Keeping Kyler is the third book in the Kennedy Boys series. You must read the books in order to fully follow the whole drama filled story. I am going to make this quick since I do not want to spoil anything. Keeping Kyler starts exactly right after Losing Kyler ended…with a cliffhanger.
Kyler needs answers. Now. He is determined to find them. And Faye is determined that he not do it alone. She doesn’t want to lose him. Not again. It seems at every turn there is something or someone trying to keep them apart. They just want to live a normal life but nothing with their family is normal. They are Kennedys after-all. Can they finally find their happily ever after?
Yeah. That wasn’t much. At all. I will say that I was sucked in from the very beginning of this series. It’s full of drama, angst, love, heat, and family. I know I said it already but drama. And I fucking love it. I was in the womb when I starting watching soap operas. I would come home after school and catch up on them with my mom. During the summer I watched them daily. Up until last year I had to watch General Hospital five days a week. Thirty-five years of it. I miss cable!! Anyway…this book gave me that feeling. I couldn’t stop reading. I couldn’t wait for the next oh, shit! And oh, fuck moments. The twists. Omfg. Seriously, I sat and ate popcorn while I read.
Overall…I am addicted to this family. The writing. The characters. I couldn’t read fast enough. It was an amazing conclusion to Kyler and Faye’s story. I am excited for the rest of the boys to get their stories.
Quotes:
“You are far too tempting to be let out in public.”
“You can’t suggest killing people every time they cross us. You’re playing way too much Assassin’s Creed.”
They are far from perfect, but they’re my far from perfect.”
