5 What’s Right In Front Of You CROWNS

I am so in love with this family that Kandi has created, the Becker boys own my heart and soul and Mickey just took the lead. She has brought to life a beautifully written friends to lover’s romance that will tug at your heartstrings and bring unbinding tears to your eyes. Mickey and Kylie will take a piece of you with them that you won’t want back. 

When she left, I realized that she didn’t just take part of me with her – she took all of me. 

Michael Becker took hold of my heart from the beginning and I never really got it back. You can’t help but fall in love with this boy who’s been broken and is just going through the motions. He wears his heart on his sleeve and you can’t help your own heart from physically aching when his get’s shattered. But, seeing him slowly come back to life once Kylie steps in makes you so unbelievably happy. You can feel their connection through the pages. And it warms you knowing that he has someone like her in his life. 

But he does have his stupid streak and makes some poor decisions that make you want to punch him. Then in the next token he does the most remarkable things that have you swooning all over the place. I tell you with the way he apologizes it would be hard to stay mad at him.

He hadn’t even talked to her and a wave of possession had swept in on me like a surprise summer storm. 

Kylie is the girl next door. She’s sweet and caring always looking out for those around her. She is unflappably loyal even when it isn’t deserved, she’s the whole package. This girl is goodness wrapped in rainbows, but she doesn’t take anyone’s crap either. She knows when she must make a stand and she doesn’t waver in her decisions. I love this girl’s tenacity and spark of life that she brings to the world. And watching the way she is with Mickey bringing him slowly but surely back to life is exhilarating to see unfold. 

He kissed me like a punishment, and I took it like a sadist

Kandi has woven a truly heartfelt tale of first loves lost, and unrequited loves found. Watching Mickey and Kylie grow in their relationship and heal from their shared tragedies makes your heartbeat a little faster and the tears flow quiet but steady. These two are connected on a level that not many are or ever will be. Mickey and Kylie are the epitome of friends to lovers that you can’t get enough of. I loved everything about this story and this family will continue to own a part of me. I can’t wait to see where she takes us with Logan’s story.

ARC review

Manhattan Cover FINAL.png

Everyone knows not to fall in love with your best friend.

But when your best friend is Michael Becker, it’s impossible not to.

He’s everything our town knows a Becker brother to be: devastatingly handsome, charming as a thief, and the icing on the cake — a sentimental musician who’s never without his guitar.

And he was mine. At least, that’s what I’d convinced myself.

Our bond was born in elementary school, strengthened by circumstance and the promise to always be there for each other, no matter what. And the best thing about my life was being friends with Michael Becker.

Until it was the worst.

I watched him fall in love with someone else, and helped patch him back up when she left him behind. But when he drops the bomb that he’s moving to New York, I realize it’s my last chance to tell him how I feel. And I ask him to make one more promise.

One summer. One list of adventures to remind him that our small town has more to offer than memories of the girl who left him behind.

One last chance to tell him I’m in love with him.

And I’m just dumb enough to believe that maybe he could love me, too.

About Kandi:

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.
