The boy who always felt like mine is now the man I can't have…
Dig a little and you'll find photos of me in the bathtub with Ezra Stern.
Get your mind out of the gutter. We were six months old.
Pry and one of us might confess we saved our first kiss for each other.
The most clumsy, wet, sloppy . . . spectacular thirty seconds of my adolescence.
Get into our business and you'll see two families, closer than blood, torn apart in an instant.
Twenty years later, my "awkward duckling" best friend from childhood,
the boy no one noticed, is a man no one can ignore.
Finer. Fiercer. Smarter.
Tell me it's wrong.
Tell me the boy who always felt like mine is now the man I can’t have.
When we find each other again, everything stands in our way--secrets, lies, promises.
But we didn't come this far to give up now.
And I know just the move to make if I want to make him mine.
5 Heart Review by Ashley
It is official...Kennedy Ryan can do no wrong. The way she combines cultures and customs with life and love is unparalleled. I was consumed with Queen Move from the opening scene.
Kimba and Ezra's journey may have started when they met as babies but it took a lifetime. I loved watching them grow. From childhood best friends. To the sweet innocence of experiencing 'feelings' for the first time. To reconnecting as adults.
Legacy. Prestige. Heritage. Tradition. Secrets. Doing whats right, not whats easy. Those are the driving forces behind everything both Ezra and Kimba do. Even at the detriment of their own happiness. Time and circumstance never seemed to be on their side and the longing made my chest ache.
I can't adequately put into words how deeply Kennedy Ryan moved me with this book. Queen Move was unique and thought-provoking. There was angst and want. Secrets and challenges. And a timeless love that wouldn't be denied. The road Kimba and Ezra take to finding love with one another, while messy was beautifully charted. And that ending was pure perfection.
5 Heart Review by Lorena
I have no words for this book, NONE! Other than the fact that I'm left speechless. Ms. Ryan knows how to write one heck of a book that is jam packed with angst, drama, and love.
We get Kimba and Ezra who pretty much have been destined for each other all their lives. They have known each other since they were in diapers and once they have reached puberty then find out that they have stronger feelings for each other that go beyond the best friends kind. When something happens between the parents, Kimba and Ezra end up splitting up when they were just discovering their feelings for each other. They lost contact and were unable to reach other until they both gave up and moved on. They each have a successful career and have their own lives to live. Ezra has a son and a girlfriend he's been with for 10 years while Kimba is dedicated to just her career at the moment.
Now 20 years later and they run into each other again. They both feel that strong bond, they still have that strong connection that never dwindled between them. It may have gone dormant but it never left. They will have challenges and heartbreak full of tears but I'm sure that the outcome has to be in favor of Kimba and Ezra right!
With some fight these two will work hard and trying to make their love work one way or another regardless of the hardships and challenges that are thrown their way.
Kimba and Ezra had a one of a kind love that no matter the distance they were destined to be together. Their love was pure and beautiful.
Ms. Kennedy Ryan has written another book full of challenges that will have you gripping your heart and rooting for Kimba and Ezra throughout the book.
