Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.

She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it’s official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren’t.

Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her.

Anderson Black is perfectly fine being lost.

He doesn’t care about the town’s new resident — he’s too busy fighting his own demons. But when he’s brought face to face with Wren, he can see her still-fresh wounds from a mile away. What he doesn’t see coming is his need to know who put them there — or his desperation to mend them.

Sometimes getting lost is the way to find yourself. Sometimes healing only adds a new scar. And sometimes the last place you expected to be is exactly where you find home.

My Review

​Revelry by Author Kandi Steiner is a friends-to-lovers romance novel.

If the eyes really were windows to our souls, then our souls had climbed through those windows and stood face to face in my kitchen, seeing each other for the first time without cloudy glass between them to skew the truth.

Wren had just ended her marriage to a man with whom she was once hopelessly in love. But, he had come to see her accomplishments as a point of contention and competition, no longer valuing her as a person. Deciding she temporarily needed a change of pace, Wren escapes to Gold Bar, where she meets Anderson, a man whose present is consumed by his past.

I was ready to live again. Or maybe it was for the first time ever. And it was then that I realized that though I was bruised, and maybe a little fractured, I was not broken.

Told in alternating points of view, Revelry was a soul- touching novel. I love that Wren did things just for herself. Her fashion choices were not motivated by a desire to impress men or even other women. Her sole desire was to feel good in her own skin. It was very moving and endearing that Anderson saw Wren for who she was; the woman on the outside and inside. Every aspect of this story brought to life people and places that shaped these characters into the people they had become and were yet to be.

“There are no rules when it comes to life and love, and even if there were they would only exist to be broken. There’s no methodology, no equation, no right or wrong or guided path of light.”

Revelry was a novel about love born from desperation; the need to live and thrive, to feel and be felt. It was sweet, funny, and arousing.
