REVIEW : All the Way by Kendall Ryan

I know it’s time to move on from my rocky past and get back out there and start dating again.

It’s just that every time I think about it, I get all nervous and sweaty.

Good thing I have a secret weapon to help me—my best friend, professional hockey stud Owen Parrish.

He’s the king of hookups, and promises he’ll be my guide through the world of online dating. With his help, I know this won’t be as hard.

I’ve never been this hard in my entire life.

My friend Becca wants my help hooking her up with some douchey guy from a dating app.

I said I’d help her—but now I’m noticing all kinds of things I can’t ignore, like how pretty she is behind those baggy clothes and messy buns.

I want to be the one to help her, to show her the ropes in the bedroom, and it turns out, Becca’s game to let me take a more hands-on approach.

But what happens when she’s ready to take her newfound confidence and move on? I’ve never been boyfriend material, but for her, I want to try.

Our eyes meet, and something inside me sizzles. I have a feeling things are about to get a whole lot more complicated.


I have been waiting for Owen and Becca’s story since these two characters were first introduced in Playing for Keeps. All the Way can be read of as a standalone, however, the previous book is just as amazing and you get a little introduction to these two characters.

Becca had experienced a traumatic event, but its time for her to get back into the dating game, so who else to help but her best guy friend and someone that she completely trusts. Of course, things don’t always work out how they are planned.

There is no denying that Becca and Owen have chemistry. I loved their friendship, their banter and their overall connection. They can laugh and joke about another and have such a great vibe to their relationship.

Owen is the perfect mix of super protective alpha male but he is also super caring and a teddy bear. How can you not swoon over that. I loved that he really put Becca’s feelings, her emotions and her needs before his. He knew exactly what she needed when it came to his help. Not to mention these two were kindle melting hot!

I’m a sucker for sports romances, especially hockey ones and this is a MUST READ!
