Amie's Review of Kendrick, Torey Hope: The Later Years by A.D. Ellis ~ RELEASE BLITZ ~


Spunky and independent, Jay Keller only wants to have fun, having long ago decided that love is reserved for people living fairy tale lives.
Kendrick Jordan is a sarcastic, inappropriate smartass whose sense of humor, intense love of family, and serial dating habits enable him to mask his painful past.
Through a chance encounter, Jay gives Kendrick a chance to satisfy his curiosity with no strings attached. But when Kendrick’s past catches up with him and Jay is dealt a life-altering blow, they find themselves turning to each other for support.
After a traumatic accident threatens their new-found love, Jay and Kendrick must decide if their relationship is worth the terrifying and painful journey they now face.
**Kendrick and Jay's story is meant for ages 18+ due to adult themes, language, and situations. Sensitive readers should be warned of possible triggers in the storyline.**


WOW this book started with a BANG !! I knew it was going to be a great book yet not an easy story to read. Kendrick has ALWAYS been the jokester , the fun loving , rowdy and crazy cousin of the group. Side jokes , sexual innuendos and the fear and excitement of never knowing what he may be thinking or about to say. OMG when Sawyer came out , Kendrick's curiosity made that so amazing , on top of all his winning qualities he also became bi-curious !! A lot of the humor that stays with me in these series come from either Nicky or Kendrick !! I adore them. BUT towards the end of Zach's book we find Kendrick not himself , everyone is worried and he is needing time and space. What the heck is Kendrick holding in and how long will he make us wait to finally get his story...

When this story starts we find Kendrick doing what he does best - drinking and planning his conquest for the night. Much to his surprise this newest conquest comes as a package deal !! Not only do we get to meet the wild and free Jay but Kendrick also gets to fulfill some of his curiosity - it is pretty heated and fun to read about this !! Something about Jay had Kendrick hooked and despite her rules they find themselves getting closer and closer despite neither looking for love. Kendrick is forced to face his family , his past and his fears for the future all at once. As we know this family is amazing so regardless I had hope everything would be fine. Of course Jay fit right in and their future plans had both Jay and Kendrick reaching for goals they ever thought they would have. Sadly in Torey Hope we always have some heartache and devastation before we get that amazing HEA. Will Kendrick overcome his problems or will he leave Jay alone as so many others have done ??

Jay is very closed off and besides Tony and her cafe job she has yet to make many roots in this small town. BUT something about Kendrick makes it easy to feel and open up. One event drives Jay to open up her dark past and share with Kendrick. Once we know her story it makes the next set of events heartbreaking to see her go through. Jay is strong no doubt , but is she strong enough to actually help someone choose right ??

This story does get REAL - but it has an amazing ending and of course during the good we get some real amazing hotness and fun !!
