5 Acceptance Crowns
Siobhan has just shredded my heart with this beautifully written friends to lover’s romance that is sure to bring you to your knees. I have been waiting for what feels like forever for Keaton’s book. I knew he was something special when I was first introduced to him in Finding Kyler, and I was not wrong. His story is a heartwarming look at accepting ones true authentic self and the pure happiness that can bring once you allow yourself to be who you were always meant to be.
Keaton was always the sensitive one putting everyone’s needs above his own and essentially hiding who he is because of the world and who is family is to the media in general. Even when he was with Melissa you could tell he wasn’t happy, you could feel him just going to through the motions, and doing what he thought was expected of him. But as the story goes on and you get to see him really blossom and be in love for real for the first time, it makes your heart swoon. I legit had a smile on my face through most of this book as I watched Keaton come to terms with who he is and really strive to be happy and to show the world who he is, not in shame but in confidence. I was right there cheering him on wanting that for him…
Austen is absolutely perfect for Keaton, you could feel the connection between them from the moment they meet. And as they slowly start to open up about their feelings for each other and really show the other who they are you can feel their happiness shine from the pages. I loved watching them as a couple building their relationship and really breaking down the walls they have both built around them for the sake of their safety. I hate that they had to hide who they are to the world around them because people just don’t know how to be accepting. And it broke my heart to watch as the go through some serious struggles and dejection after a truly appalling thing happens, really bringing to light where they are in their lives and how much more they still have to grow.
I’m not going to lie Siobhan broke me with this book, I cried for them and what they lost and the situations that arose due to hateful people and cruel words. But the way that Siobhan presented their relationship with this unyielding grace and authenticity is like a balm to your heart and soul. I died for them and their love, Kyler and Faye have always been one of my favorite couples of Siobhan’s but I think Austen and Keaton just ousted them out of the top spot. This book will tear through your emotions leaving you utterly drained but completely sated in the best way. Bravo Siobhan if I could give this book more than 5 stars I would because they deserve all the Stars and more. Thank you for bringing us on this emotional journey that I don’t know how I ever lived without.

I can’t go on like this anymore.
Living a lie.
Shielding the truth from those I love.
Hurting the one girl who has always been there for me.
Pretending to be someone I’m not.
But I’m scared to drop the façade because I know not everyone will understand.
Definitely not the girl I’ve professed to love.
And I’ve no clue how my brothers will handle the news.
But I’ve spent years trying to please everyone else.
And I’m over it.
Now it’s time to take something for myself, and there’s no turning back.
Even though the one who knows my secret threatens to reveal it to the world.
Let him do his worst.
Because I’m done hiding.
