Review: XO, Zach by Kendall RyanGenres: Contemporary Romance

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.

xo, Zach

I’m pretty sure I smiled throughout this entire book.  Zach Austin and Poppy Ellis were #couplegoals.

XO, Zach is the story of Zach and Poppy which was full of heart, passion and humor.  Poppy and Zach meet at a party and have a fun evening together.  However, they part ways without each other’s phone numbers, leaving it up to the universe to decide if they should see each other again.

Well, guess what?

They meet up once again, her being a student and him being her advisor.  I love the storyline of this book and enjoyed the dual POV.  I also loved that friends and family were brought into the storyline, especially Zach’s mother who was hilarious!!

I truly enjoyed the banter between Zach and Poppy and that he knew what he wanted and went after it.  I loved how this book showed the progression of their relationship and their chemistry was outstanding.

XO, Zach is the perfect Kendall Ryan book for new readers as well as dedicated fans!
