Review ~~ XO, Zach by Kendall Ryan
The first time we met was at a party.
Your ex arrived to show off the person he’d left you for last month, and you asked me to pretend to be your date.
I was more than happy to help. You were attractive, smart and witty–and that kiss we shared? It left me wanting you for days.
The second time we met was in my office on campus where we were both surprised to discover you were the new master’s degree student in poetry that I would be working with. You promised to be professional. I did no such thing.
The late nights and intense study sessions spent alongside you majorly throw me off my game. I want you, and I fight with myself daily over this fact.
I know I’m crass, that my sexual innuendos and dirty mouth annoy you, but I live for those two bright spots of color in your cheeks. If that’s the only reaction I can get out of you, I’ll gladly take it.
You hate Mondays so every Monday I slip an anonymous poem into your bag and your smile gets me through the week.
I think I’m falling for you, and I know it’s wrong. I know that I’m only supposed to be your adviser and nothing more, but here’s the thing. I think you’re falling for me too.

Louisa’s 3 Blush Review
At their first meeting, Poppy asked Zach to be her pretend boy (her ex and new girlfriend show up). Poppy is beautiful and he is totally on board from the moment she asks.
Poppy hasn’t had an easy life, but she’s not complaining. She’s working hard to achieve her goals while overcoming a few obstacles.
Zach is an advisor at the college, helping students like Poppy. Of course, they probably shouldn’t hook up. He’s not her teacher but there is a little bit of forbidden going on.
Poppy’s friends (who are hilarious) and Zach’s mom were two characters who made me enjoy this book even more.
I think the back and forth and push a pull went a little longer than I would have liked, they protested a little too much and too long for me. But I do have to say this – once they decided to “go for it”, I was so happy. I loved Zach’s devotion to Poppy and her life and he may have made me swoon a time or two.
