    RATING 4.5 STARS All the Way is book two in the Hot Jocks series by Kendall Ryan. This can be read as a stand alone. I have not read the first book in this series. But I loved this so much that I most definitely will be keeping up with any future books that come along! Owen Parrish is a goalie for the Ice Hawks hockey team in Seattle. He’s your typical single, sexy, hot athlete. RATING 4.5 STARS All the Way is book two in the Hot Jocks series by Kendall Ryan. This can be read as a stand alone. I have not read the first book in this series. But I loved this so much that I most definitely will be keeping up with any future books that come along! Owen Parrish is a goalie for the Ice Hawks hockey team in Seattle. He’s your typical single, sexy, hot athlete. He can have any woman he wants and frequently does. But always with their acceptance that it’s one night only. His career is his focus. Becca is close friends with Owen’s younger sister and is also his best friend. She works in administration for the team. She and Owen have been close friends for about four years. Due to something traumatic that happened to Becca back in college, she hasn’t dated in years. She’s lost her confidence. She yearns for that closeness, that bond. She misses sex! But she just can’t. The only person she’s comfortable with is her friend, Owen. Maybe Owen could be like her wing man? Advise her on how to relax, to get out of her own head, help her get past that mental block she so firmly has in place. “It’s like Owen is my shield of armor, protecting me from the elements.” Owen has always been attracted to Becca. How could he not be? She’s beyond beautiful, sweet, smart, fun. When she asks for his help dating, the thought of her hooking up with any guy makes him crazy. So maybe he could be her guinea pig! Maybe they could practice together until Becca regains her confidence. Owen’s not a relationship guy. Even if he was, he doesn’t deserve someone like Becca. But maybe he can just bask in her sunshine for a little while? “The chemistry I was stressing over? Yeah, let’s just say I had nothing to worry about.” When you first meet Owen, you don’t see the side of him that Becca brings out. But as these two progress, I fell in love with him. He was so careful, so wonderful. He did everything right. He made sure that everything was about Becca. And wow were these two hot together! They steamed up the pages! This is a sweet, hot, sexy, fun and a wonderful, friends to lovers story that I loved. I couldn’t get enough of these two! Becca might be a bit inexperienced with men but she’s not weak nor is she naïve. She’s brave and strong. And Owen is definitely swoony! I really did love this book. The next book in the series will be Teddy and Sara’s story in Trying to Score. I can’t wait.

    Let me start by telling you that I am an epically SLOW reader. What takes you an hour to read takes me two. I read ALL THE WAY in one day. I NEEDED this story. I needed to fall into this world with Becca and Owen and experience the heartache, the turmoil, the sweetness, the tenderness and the incredible, patient LOVE woven through the pages. Becca is such a relatable heroine, independent, strong, with great friends and a past she just can't seem to shake no matter how hard she tries.

Becca is such a relatable heroine, independent, strong, with great friends and a past she just can't seem to shake no matter how hard she tries. And Owen is the perfect alpha hero. He melted my heart (and my panties--hot hockey goalie, yes and please) with his tenderness, his care and thoughtfulness. I loved falling in love right along with the characters. I loved watching Becca overcome her past and Owen falling in love with her quiet bravery. If you are looking for an emotional, RELEVANT, very relatable romance with loads of steam, some fabulously funny moments sprinkled into the seriousness of it all, then I highly recommend All the Way. I finished the book with the most dreamy smile on my face and I'm wearing it now as I write this review. I'm also a little teary, because I'm sappy like that. Empowering, emotional, sexy and gorgeously romantic in all the best ways. ALL THE WAY is absolute perfection. Do yourself a favour and move this one to the top of your TBR.

    This is the second book in the “Hot Jocks” series and I enjoyed it a lot better than the first instalment. I felt this one had way more heart to it. The story is about two friends who end up falling in love! Owen is a professional hockey player whom loves women! As long as they are only around for a one night stand, then he’s all for them!

As long as they are only around for a one night stand, then he’s all for them! Just don’t ask him for any kind of commitment! When his good friend comes to him with an issue she is having regarding her fears about sex... how can he say no?! She was sexually assaulted in College and can’t seem to move past it....Owen steps up to the plate and shows a side of himself even he didn’t know he had. I personally was worried that I couldn’t get past Owen being a manwhore... but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by his sensitive side. He was amazing when it came to being gentle and loving! This whole story was touching and I am happy that I gave book two a chance! I highly recommend this story, and it could be read as a stand alone, even though you meet Owen in book one! Just a feel good read with fairly low angst!

It's being afraid and doing it anyway." Owen Parrish is living his dream as the star goalie for the Seattle Ice Hawks professional hockey team. The sexy pro athlete has a playboy reputation and is known for being a good time. He’s a hot commodity with the ladies, but doesn’t date, and doesn’t do relationships or complications. Becca is a 25 yr. old single woman who works in the office at the Ice Hawks arena, and is the assistant to the team owner. She loves her job, and has an amazing group of friends, but hasn’t found the guy who makes her go weak in the knees. She’s been through a dry spell the last few years, and has a rocky past she’s trying to move on from. She’s lonely and ready to put herself out there again, but decides she needs help getting back into the dating scene. She asks her best friend Owen to be her wingman. She trusts him completely, and he’s always been there for her. She figures with her hockey god bestie as a guide she can’t go wrong. Owen would do just about anything for Becca, but helping her hook up with some guy might be too much to ask. He originally thought he could do it, but that’s before he started really noticing her. How did he not see what’s been in front of him all along. He knows he’s not boyfriend material, but that doesn’t mean he can’t take care of her and be exactly what she needs. He decides to take a more hands on approach, and things quickly begin to change between them. She brings out a protective, tender side he never knew existed, and she begins to open up and gain new confidence. Their chemistry goes from zero to nuclear and soon their arrangement turns into more, and suddenly the King of casual wants to possibly commit, and is feeling things that are new and scary. Will they realize they have something meaningful and special, or will their time together have an expiration date? All The Way by Kendall Ryan is book #2 in the Hot Jocks series. It’s an all new standalone friends to lovers sports romance that is fantastic! It’s a beautiful, heartwarming love story that will have you swooning hard. Owen Parrish had my heart! This is easily my favorite Kendall Ryan book! I couldn’t get enough of this sweet, playful, sexy man. I can’t wait for Sara & Teddy’s book up next! -Becca is gorgeous, poised, sweet, and smart. Just because we've always stayed firmly in the friend zone doesn't mean I don't notice how attractive she is. You'd have to be blind not to. -It's not supposed to feel this between us, but it does. It just does. -This girl- our connection- it's been so unexpected, but now I can't imagine my life without her. ***NOW AVAILABLE*** https://amzn.to/2mYI5Pw

Owen truly love Becca as a friend, and would do anything to help her, so he does. I really loved Becca and Owen’s story, because although Becca’s past experience was heavy, her story now was showing how much of a survivor she was. Obviously not everyone’s experience/recovery with assault is the same, but I did love this take on it. I also loved that of course this best friends with benefits relationship unexpectedly turns into more. It honestly felt very natural and sweet. If you’re looking for an easy read, that has the best friends to lovers trope mixed with hockey romance, then you will love All the Way! AVAILABLE NOW! *ARC

    Becca and Owen. We already met them in the first book ... and I was excited to see how they would find their HEA. And it was cute and sexy ... I liked reading it.

I loved the different facets of this story and how Ryan was able to successfully highlight each integral part. When Becca needs help getting back into the dating game after a tragic attack, she looks to her bestfriend Owen Parrish, pro athlete and hockey god/ladies man for some hands-on tips. But when their little experiment begins to feel like a real relationship and lines get crossed, Owen and Becca have to decide if their friends with benefits agreement is enough for them both.  Gah! I enjoyed this story immensely. It was sexy and emotional and serious. Don't get me wrong, it had light-hearted moments as a Kendall Ryan novel always does, but I also enjoyed the serious tone of the novel as Becca was trying to overcome a painful issue and lingering trauma from her past. In addition, I loved how strong, determined and fiercely sassy she was. Owen, likewise, was deliciously protective and loving and boy did he know how to teach Becca a few tricks in the bedroom. Overall I loved this story. It was fiery and addicting and another fantastic Kendall Ryan story! Bravo! 5 stars! ~Ratula

Several years ago she suffered a tragic event which left her scared of intimacy. Now she's finally decided to get back into the dating game, and who better to help her than her best friend Owen. He is the starting goalie for the Ice Hawks who lives the whole playboy pro athlete life. He has never wanted anything meaningful or real. Girls are simply a means to an end for him.

I loved the playful banter between them, their sizzling hot chemistry and how Owen was able to help Becca heal from her difficult past. The build-up of their relationship was so sweet, and I was rooting for them the whole way. All in all, this was another fantastic Kendall Ryan story!

I freaking loved Owen and Becca. This was a friends to lovers with meaning and power. Their friendship was full of trust, reliability, respect, a true connection that only made their journey into a real relationship all that much better. Owen completely won my heart. He was so sweet, patient and he just cared so much for Becca and just wanted to do what was best for her. He put her above anything else and that made my heart happy. Becca had been through a terrible experience that derailed her life and years later, after much turmoil, she was ready to grab her life by the balls and get over the accident that was stopping her from living her life like she wanted to. To do so she needed the help of someone she trusted - Owen and boy was he perfect for the job. These two were a joy to read about. I completely adored their journey. They were perfect for each other and it took them very little time to see it once their plan was put to a start. Owen was an oxymoron, he was gentle and caring with Becca and her situation but he was also such an alpha male and so damn hot. He was truly the best of both worlds and Becca completely hit the jackpot with him. I can't wait for the next book! We got a glimpse of who it will be about and how it will go at the end of All The Way and I am so excited! ➳ARC kindly provided by author, in exchange for an honest review. ➳ Order at: Amazon UK ⁕ Amazon US ➳ Follow me on: Blog ⁕ Instagram ⁕ Facebook ⁕ Twitter

It was like “whoa, where did you come from?” These characters slayed me, they were everything I didn’t know I needed. When Becca needs help with something after a traumatic experience, her mind goes straight to her best friend, Owen. He’s the only one who can help her and she trusts him completely. Becca is taking control and trying to get a small glimpse of the person she was before her world changed. She’s strong and a survivor and I freaking adored her. Owen won my heart. He was so patient and sweet—he wanted to do everything he could to help Becca in any way he could. He was so protective and extremely caring. The most important thing to him was Becca’s happiness. Honestly, Owen had me swooning for days, loved him. I absolutely loved Becca and Owen’s journey. Above everything what made me love these two the most was their friendship. I loved how communicative they were and how they listened and were just there for each other. And in the end it’s what made their relationship work. I couldn’t get enough of these two, and I just wanted more. All the Way is a friends-to-lovers romance with so much heart. Not only were the main characters enjoyable, but the whole group of friends were just as great. I seriously can’t get enough of these jocks. And after that tease of whose book is next I need it, now! *I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book*

    OK.  Let me tell you that I finished this book within the course of the commute to and from work.  With time to spare.  So that's a total of about 90 minutes, give or take.  That's because I was hooked from page 1. And having just put the book down, I can tell you that I think I have a little bit of an emotional hangover.  I wish that I had the words to describe in glorious technicolour, just how wonderful this book is.  I'm not sure that I can do it justice, other than to say that bo OK.  Let me tell you that I finished this book within the course of the commute to and from work.  With time to spare.  So that's a total of about 90 minutes, give or take.  That's because I was hooked from page 1.

    Angsty, hopeful, and passionate! All the Way, the latest novel in the Hot Jocks series, is a slightly more emotive tale about the scarred, hesitant Becca who after suffering an assault in the past is having a hard time moving forward, and the handsome, hockey stud Owen who is more than happy to help his best friend find her mojo again. The writing style is seamless and sincere. The characters are patient, supportive, committed, and lovable. And the plot is a delightful mix Angsty, hopeful, and passionate!

And the plot is a delightful mix of life, love, friendship, family, self-discovery, empowerment, scorching chemistry, and steamy romance. Once again with All the Way, Ryan has proven that not only is she one of the best at writing contemporary romance stories that are humorous, light, bursting with sexual tension, and full of characters we can’t help but root for, but also emotionally compelling ones. Thank you to Kendall Ryan for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    4 Angel Stars I tried the previous book in Hot Jocks series, but I just couldn't get into it, and after a few chapters I just put it down. But this was a story I was not expecting from Kendall Ryan. For me it was such a wonderful, sweet, and real book. I loved Becca and Owen together. Their friendship was amazing, and the transition in to realationship was smooth and believable. I liked the low angst/not much drama in here. Owen was such an amazing guy. He had a perfect balance between 4 Angel Stars I tried the previous book in Hot Jocks series, but I just couldn't get into it, and after a few chapters I just put it down.

He had a perfect balance between sweet and dirty and dominating in the bedroom. I loved his caring side, and even though he didn't believed he was a boyfriend material, everything changed with the right girl. I also really like Becca. Her growin confidance, and strength was amazing to watch. This was truly a great book for me. I loved Jason Clarke, and Erin Mallon as these characters - they were so on point. And I can't wait to check out the next one in this series. I'm so curious about Teddy.

    All The Way is a best friend to lover romance. Becca and Owen have been friends forever and their relationship has always been platonic. Becca went through quite an ordeal several years ago and she has not quite able to get back on her feet in the dating department. Owen is a super star goalie for the professional NHL. Owen is known to be a player with no short of women falling at his feet. Owen is only interested in sex without commitment but at least he is honest about it.

Owen is known to be a player with no short of women falling at his feet. Owen is only interested in sex without commitment but at least he is honest about it. Owen got all the skills Becca needs to help her get back in the dating and bedroom department. Becca proposed Owen be her mentor but what happened when hookups turns into so much more? Can Owen ditch his bachelor life for a boyfriend role? Or will he let his newfound confidence best friend slip away? I always love a good friend-to-lover romance so I totally dig Becca and Owen. I have a hard time with their sexual relationship though - Becca’s dark past and the opposite sexual appetite of Owen. A bit awkward at times but I like that Owen is super patience and caring with Becca. The chemistry is definitely sizzling. I enjoy the passion, humor and witty banters. I love friends-to-lovers romance and this one is sweet, beautiful, heartwarming. I am interested in Teddy and the hardass lawyer... involving a sex tape and love??? Very intrigued.

    OMG, Kendall has done it again. Every book of hers that I read, I fall in love more and more with her work and this was no exception. I read this book in one sitting while I was supposed to be working, lol. Don’t tell my boss, lol. Owen and Becca were a great couple. They were perfect for each other. The attraction between them was off the charts. Owen doesn’t do relationships and Becca had suffered a traumatic experience while she was in school so a relationship was the last thing on their mind OMG, Kendall has done it again.

Owen doesn’t do relationships and Becca had suffered a traumatic experience while she was in school so a relationship was the last thing on their mind. Becca has decided that she needed help to get over her past and she asks Owen for help. At first he balks but when he sees her talking to someone else, the alpha man that he is, didn’t like it. This story was wonderfully written. The characters were so good. You feel like you are sitting right there with them and experiencing everything they are. It was a great ride to see them break down the huge walls they have each built around their hearts. This is one book that I will 1000% recommend to anyone who is looking for a wonderful, emotional and smexy read. In all honesty, I would love to have someone like Owen in my life. He is creeping his way to the top of my favorite book boyfriends list. I received an ARC of this book and I am voluntarily leaving a review.

    3.5 Stars! Cute friends to lovers story. Owen could have easily been just a playboy jock but he really took his friendship seriously with Becca. He was thoughtful and careful and ended up being good boyfriend material.

    Very disappointed in this book. I really enjoyed Justin and Becca’s story from book 1, but there was very little story here. It was ALL sex scenes! I like some story and character development with my sex, thank you. One sex scene after another, which were loooong and detailed, but not interesting, which is the most important part!! Any storyline between sex scenes was glossed over and rushed. In a word, it was boring. I kept reading, (but I had to skim a LOT) just hoping that something would hap Very disappointed in this book.

In a word, it was boring. I kept reading, (but I had to skim a LOT) just hoping that something would happen, but the same things happened over and over. Hot go go go STOP! Repeat. Repeat... I also felt zero connection to these characters. It was like the story was told from a cool distance (except the oversharing sex scenes.) I didn’t FEEL anything. I never felt their emotions, i never cheered or them, they just WERE, and I was sooo bored. And the whole naive idea that close friends can have a sexual relationship without it changing the relationship and no one would ‘get feelings’, is just ridiculous. I can do friends to lovers trope all day (my favorite!) but Friends with Benefits? Nope. Someone in another review said that this is basically the same story of book 1, recycled, and I agree. Similarities? Immature couple who are constantly partying, heavy drinking as a whole friend group (doesn't that get old?), keeping relationship secret from said friend group, fooling their friends and sneaking off to be together. One scene was IDENTICAL. The heroine gets her period and flakes out on going out but is too squeamish/ immature to admit why, thinks Hero only wants her for sex, hero finds out, 'can I come over anyway? I actually like you. I don't mind sitting watching a movie with you while you have your period'... EXACT same. it was cute the first time, the second was deja vu. And lazy! Is that seriously the ONLY way the author could think to show us that hero liked her for more than sex??? Two books in a row in a series?? One HUGE problem for me was that the entire set up of this story was that the heroine had been assaulted / nearly raped and she was still traumatized years later. Ok, got it. BUT the hero of this story was ACTUALLY raped / sodomized with a dildo against his will while handcuffed, and it was treated as a joke!! Remember the 'sex emergency' alluded to in the previous book? Well, the bonus scene tells us what happened and his actual rape is treated as a gag. How are we supposed to take the one almost-raped-but-rescued-in-time sexual assault as traumatic for LIFE, but laugh at the man being restrained and sodomized in the same book??? Did this bother no one else???

    * A review copy was provided by the author * ~ 5 A Whole Lot Of Owen Stars ~ I have probably said this before, but I am a HUGE of fan of Kendall Ryan books. I have ready EVERY book she has released and I have LOVED everyone of them. After reading Playing For Keeps (Hot Jocks Book 1) I couldn’t wait to read All The Way (Hot Jocks Book 2) and I will say this…..I was not disappointed.

I have ready EVERY book she has released and I have LOVED everyone of them. After reading Playing For Keeps (Hot Jocks Book 1) I couldn’t wait to read All The Way (Hot Jocks Book 2) and I will say this…..I was not disappointed. I loved every word and Owen Parrish is AMAZING!!! All the Way is the second book in Kendall’s Hot Jocks series. This series focuses on a group of NHL Hockey stars and the women who tame them. After meeting Owen in book 1, I couldn’t wait to see how she was going to tame the ultimate playboy. This book is a standalone novel told in Dual POV. Each of these books can be read in any order. We do see the characters from book 1 in this story but nothing is really spoiled if this book is read first. I would only suggest reading Playing for Keeps first because then you get the FULL understanding of who Becca and Owen are. This book is a fairly quick read, but as with all Kendall’s books, it lacked for nothing. We got all the feels we normally get when reading a romance novel. I thought this book was the perfect mix of romance and Hockey but it also had an emotional side to it. This story is not only a sports romance, but it is also a friends to lovers story. Owen and Becca have been best friends for many years. They met through Owen’s sister Elise (heroine in book 1) and became fast friends. So much so that Becca turned to Owen when she wanted help getting past her past. Becca went through a traumatic situation when she was a freshman in college and it has taken her 6 years to try to get past it and take a chance at intimacy again. This is where Owen comes in. Becca comes up with an arrangement for Owen to help her break down her walls when it comes to the opposite sex. She has always felt comfortable and safe around him, so she can’t think of anyone better to help her. Will Owen cross the line and help Becca?? What happens when things become more?? Can they get their HEA?? Read this fun and entertaining story to find out. I liked seeing Justin and Elise again in this book, but I really liked seeing more of Teddy. I look forward to his book next…Trying To Score. Just from the blurb, I think that book is going to be interesting ;) If you are a fan of Kendall Ryan books, you NEED to read this story. You will love Owen and Becca just as much as I did. If you have started on this journey of Kendall’s books yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR, this would be the perfect place to start. Trust me, once you pick up your first Kendall Ryan book you will be hooked. Follow Us at :: Book Bitches Blog | Facebook | Twitter

    I received an advanced copy of Kendall Ryan’s All the Way. It’s the second standalone book in the hot jock’s series that is about pro hockey players. I enjoyed the first book in the series so much I couldn’t wait for the second one to come out. Owen was not at all what I was expecting him to be. I enjoyed reading the cautious, thoughtful side of him but after one of the scenes from Justin’s book, I was waiting for some dirty filthy sex scenes and we never got that.

I enjoyed reading the cautious, thoughtful side of him but after one of the scenes from Justin’s book, I was waiting for some dirty filthy sex scenes and we never got that. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the book and Owen, he just wasn’t what I was expecting and that was a wonderful surprise. Becca was sexually assaulted when she was in college and since then has been afraid to get close or intimate with a man. It’s been 6 years since the attack and she’s ready to move on, however, she is scared and rightfully so. She took the first step and put herself out there by joining an online dating service and has been on a few dates but when it comes time to get intimate or physical she clams up. She propositions Owen one night to teach her how to relax and be her first sexual experience since the attack 6 years ago. They are best friends and she trusts he won't hurt her and will stop should she say stop. Owen and Becca’s chemistry was always there. They’ve always been attracted to each other but didn't want to ruin their friendship. Watching them connect and fall for each other was the best part of the book. That and the epilogue. You couldn’t help but swoon over Owen so hard after one of the comments he says to Becca (I’m not going to tell you what it was, you’ll know what I’m talking about once you read the book!) It was this moment that I realised why Kendall and the rest of the ARC readers before me who have read the book have swooned hard over own. He is one of a kind, a book boyfriend I personally have never read before. A definite 5 star read, not Kendall’s best book but that’s because I’m still in love with Justin from Playing for Keeps.
