Review: Reservation by Rachael Wade

New Adult Contemporary Romance

 A sequel to the Amazon bestselling romance, Preservation, told from Ryan’s point of view.

Old Habits Die Hard.

Ryan Campbell is not only leaving his title of Professor behind to move on to bigger and better things at Simon and Warden Publishing, he’s also become Seattle’s rising literary star. Sitting on the overwhelming cusp of newfound fame, he learns soon enough that being popular has its downside.

Attracted to the buzz surrounding his new career, former lovers begin to creep back into his life, and potential ones emerge with enticing advances. While he works to juggle reserved, yet stressful, wedding plans with Kate and his new public image, he has enough to manage without worrying about Carter and Dean—Kate’s loveable albeit eccentric friends—and their latest shenanigans.

Surrounded by a lifestyle that includes temptation at every turn, Ryan finds himself immersed in a world full of scandal and lies, where his oldest weaknesses thrive and his ghosts return to haunt him. Questioning whether his life with Kate is his best path, he must discover if he’s still capable of being the man he aspired to be when she first became his, or if happily ever after is only an illusion.

Where do I start? Way to kick a man when he's down, Rach! My poor Ryan! I just wanted to climb into the book and give him a hug. He angers me and makes me love him at the same time. Now I know how Kate feels :-). Reservation was a whirlwind of emotions and I couldn't help but feel every single one of them with the characters. I felt like Ryan was living Murphy's law...what can go wrong, will. I knew that Ryan's past history with women wasn't ideal but I was not expecting that! I'm not spoiling anything...just saying. Did I mention this book is told in Ryan's POV? Oh man....that man oozes sex. This book was everything and more. I didn't know how it would stack up to Preservation and I have a legitimate fear of sequels. I avoid them like the plague. The sexiness from Preservation was there times 2. I admit that I did procrastinate a bit while reading this. I would have devoured it in 2 days but I didn't want it to end. I hope this isn't the last time we'll hear from Kate and Ryan.
