Louisa’s 4.5 Blush ReviewThere are authors that I have found that writing reviews for their books are just so hard. Not because their books are not good or boring or just not my type – but books that are so great that there is no way I could do their story justice. I find that this happens a lot with Kennedy Ryan’s books. Neevah and Canon’s story is so much more than just two people falling in love. It’s an epic story of what many people of color have fought for, for hundreds of years. The fight to achieve goals when others see you as a color and not an actress, or singer, or director or person. Watching their story along with Dessi Blue’s story was captivating and I couldn’t put the book down! I find that Kennedy Ryan’s ability to shed light on social issues is such a talent. As a white woman, Kennedy Ryan has shown me (more than once) the struggles that many have faced, that I will never endure. Who knew reading a romance could teach you life lessons? Well, I kinda knew because this isn’t the first time Kennedy Ryan has opened my eyes and made me look at things a bit differently. This is the exact reason that I am a forever fan.
One moment in the spotlight.
For months I stood by, an understudy waiting in the wings, preparing for my time to shine. I never imagined he would watch in the audience that night. Canon Holt. Famous film director. Fascinating. Talented. Fine. Before I could catch my breath, everything changed. I went from backstage Broadway to center stage Hollywood. From being unknown, to my name, Neevah Saint, on everyone’s lips. Canon casts me in a star-studded Harlem Renaissance biopic, catapulting me into another stratosphere.
But stars shine brightest in the dead of night. Forbidden attraction, scandal and circumstances beyond my control jeopardize my dream. Could this one shot—the role of a lifetime, the love of a lifetime—cost me everything?

Excerpt“Turn around.” It’s a guttural command. He bends me over the arm of the couch, and my hands hit the cushion for support, to steady myself. At the sound of the condom tearing, my inner muscles contract, bracing for him. He spreads my cheeks and, slipping his whole hand between my legs, cups the trembling flesh. I’m unprepared for the swipe of his tongue. For the subtle abrasion of his beard scraping the inner skin of my thighs. For the sound of him eating me. I push back against his face, helpless, no shame. Digging my nails into the cushions, I widen my legs to give me more, to take more for myself. He grips my thighs, holding me steady for his devouring mouth until, with a sob that sails over the rooftop, over the city, I contract around his delving tongue. The orgasm hits hard, tightening the muscles in my thighs and calves. With staccato breaths, I bury my face in the couch, biting my lip to the point of pain. “Canon,” I beg. “Stop teasing me and—” He shoves in, and the words tumble back down my throat, recessing into the shock of this pleasure. “Jesus.” Need shreds my voice to ribbons. He coasts his hand up my back, gently cuffs my neck. Ass in the air, I rise up on my toes, begging for breath, petitioning for more dick. He gives it to me, pushing impossibly deeper. “So damn good,” he grunts behind me. I hope I never get over how perfect he feels inside me, like I was molded to his specifications. Shaped for his dimensions. I moan and reach my hand back to pull at one of my cheeks, widening the way for his cock. It feels like he goes where no dick has gone before, deeper, better. Somehow I feel each thrust in my heart. His every touch plays on my emotions, and tears sting my eyes. His hand tightens at my hip, and he slides the other hand up my arm, finds my hand on the couch and laces our fingers together. He sets a frenetic pace that sends the blood singing through my body again. The cushion absorbs my scream as I come, and I punish the soft cotton with clawing nails. With his voice strangled, his fingers fisted in my hair, he comes. Collapsing against my back, a heavy, happy burden, his breath stilted and warm at my neck, he snakes one muscled arm around my middle, clutching me. After the urgent, feral coupling, it’s a cherishing hold. I cross my arm over his at my waist and tangle our fingers. It’s fragile and sweet, this moment, like flakes of sugar disintegrating on your tongue when you’ve barely had time to taste.
