Trust. Five Letters. One Word.

I'm the girl who doesn't let anyone in. My world was shattered and turned upside down in one night. Since then I've been trying to live, if that's what you call it, but fighting the anxiety of what happened and trusting others is hard. Each day is a struggle to reach for the unknown.

Truth. Five Letters. One Word.

I watched my father give my mother the world and the stars. She took everything from him, then left him as a broken man with nothing to live for. I told myself I'd never fall in love. I'm guarding my heart and emotions, only looking out for number one. The only way to have truth in any relationship is to stay true to yourself.

Just when you think you've got it all figured out, you realize your puzzle is unfinished. You find a piece you never thought you needed until everything changes with one touch.

After that...you levitate.

Levitate is my new favorite book by Kaylee Ryan. I cannot get enough of this book. It just pulled me in and I could not put it down. I laughed, I cried, and I swooned! When Kensington James was 18 years old her life was forever changed when her mother was murdered while trying to protect her. Kensi is now a 22-year-old college senior. She doesn't date and doesn't trust men. Maxton Cooper's life changed two years ago after his father died. He cannot stand his mother for using his father, taking from him and then leaving him with a broken heart. Max does not trust women. When Max and Kensi meet it is like oil in water. They don't mix. They have no choice but to be around each other because their best friends are dating. The more Kensi is around Max she sees less of the arrogant man she first met, and more "sweet Max." Slowly the walls erected around both their shattered hearts start to crumble and they open up to each other. The past doesn't always stay in the past, and some pain is just too much. Sometimes love isn't enough. Will Max and Kensi find their happiness? Levitate is a must read! I have a feeling this is going to be one of my top reads of 2015.

Who has a BEST freind for four years and not share tte reason for their anguish. Maxton, who was to be a mysterious tall hunk is just a confessed womanizer turn sappy blubbering mess thanks to the typical high bone blueyed "beautiful" kensinton. The continuous use of the "f" word not necessary. The sex lacking imagination even for missionary. I really wanted to like this book but pages and pages of maxton whining and crying while punching someone into th eext century was a turn off. Kensington being picked up every page like her injury kept her from walking is a turn off. Everybody is a single child. too convenient. Thank goodness the next generation is a double digit.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. What a great story. I love the sweet stories that this writes but this by far is my favorite. The characters were well developed and she didn't rush their love. It was a great book. I felt the emotions of Max and Kensington. I felt their struggles and how they evolved. Especially Maxton.

I'm really grateful to my friend, who buy me the books, especially this one, because Levitate is my new favourite book!  Kensington and Maxton are a perfect couple.  I felt the chemistry between them. They are very likeable, and it's not just a simple love story, it's more. They learned a lot about themselves and each other, and their characters developed a lot. Trust is a difficult feeling, and I understand Kensington because I dont trust anyone (only my mom and my best friend). I hope I will find my Maxton, a real soulmate! While I was reading, I felt the pain, the happiness, the love... It's a highly recommended book, so please buy it now and start reading! I promise, you will love it! I live in Hungary, and I will recommend this amazing story for the other book lovers :) Btw, the cover is really amazing! Mariann M.

Kaylee Ryan can sure write some of the sweetest/cutest stories ever. Levitate was a really good book. I liked the plot of the book. I can’t say that I have read a book with a similar plot before. I can say that I felt so so sorry for Kensington. I just could not imagine going through something so horrible. I will say that Kensington is a strong Heroine with the occasional weak moment. But, with her knowing her past and what happened then, yes, I can see why she had her weak moments. So, yeah I really did like Kensington. And I love her name. Maxton was just a plain douchebag when you first meet him. I really didn’t like him, at first. Thank god as we get more into the story we get to see another side of him. I also thought that he was just a little over the top sometimes, but overall I really liked him. I really think that if you loved her previous books you will enjoy this one just as much. Although this one has a little more angst that the other ones. Or at least it seems that way to me, but I loved it just as much as her previous books. Overall thoguhts… I really enjoyed it and love it just as much as her previous books. Although I did not like Maxton at first he does grow on you and you will love him. Or at least I did. I really felt sorry for Kensington. I loved both of their friends. They were adorable together. Recommend: Yes! #1clicknow

Kaylee Ryan has done it again. I know there is a reason she is one of my favorite authors and Levitate just reconfirms my feelings. I love books with not a lot of drama and just a fun read, and Kaylee does that well. She can take characters and make them sweet, honest, and someone you would love to be friends with. Yes I love all Kaylee's books, but Maxton has now taken the #1 spot for favorite BBF. Kensington has had a difficult life, especially after her mother's death. Just trying to get through college and live life one day at a time, she didn't want friendship or romance from Maxton. Meeting him through her best friends boyfriend, things didn't go well at first. Thinking he is nothing but a player, something she doesn't need, want, or like in a guy, she tries to ignore the attraction to him. Maxton coming around all the time though, her feelings start to grow. With her past though, she doesn't want to trust him. Maxton is just an all around good guy. A bar owner just trying to make his family business work and enjoying life. He meets Kensington, Kensi, at a moment when he didn't think he wasn't thinking or looking for love. Kensington throws him for a loop with her attitude and her not really wanting to be around him. He can't figure out what it is about her that attracts him so much, but knows he cannot be away from her. The way he treats her, and worships her, makes me wish he will a real person. Every girl needs and deserves a Maxton, and too bad you cannot just go out and buy him. Watching these 2 people grow and fall in love was a beautiful thing to read. Throw in 2 best friends and you have the perfect romance. Thank you for such an amazing read Kaylee. It was a joy to read.

5++ STARS!! Another amazing book by Kaylee Ryan!! Maxton & Kens have every reason to stay away from love but they cannot deny their attraction. Maxton was so swoon worthy and so caring and patient with Kens. He never pushed her, he let her take the lead in some things and just showed her that he was in it for real and he wasn't letting her go. He protected her, let her fight her demons by herself but always reminded her that he was there by her side. The love he had for her was astounding and true. Kensington was terrified of Maxton and the attraction she felt towards him from the beginning. She wanted to just finish school and have a quiet life, but that's not what happened. When she started getting to know and see the real Maxton, there was no stopping her from falling in love with him. She trusted him, and that was so big for her. I loved seeing Kensington grow throughout this book. Yes they went through some struggles but their love never waivered. I absolutely loved this book, it is by far my favorite book by Kaylee Ryan!! I cannot see what she comes out with next!!

Levitate follows the story of Kensington and Maxton. Kensington hasn't been the same since her mother died. She doesn't trust or let just anyone in. Each day is a struggle for her...  Maxton never wanted to fall in love. His father loved his mother with everything that he was and his mother just threw it away. The only thing keeping him going now is to keep his father's dream alive. Brought together because their two best friends are dating, Maxton and Kensington are not off to a good start. While their chemistry is clearly off the charts, Kensington isn't having Maxton's player persona. He's cocky and isn't afraid to go after what he wants.  But, Kensington isn't having it. She's smart and stubborn. She's terrified of what will happen if she lets Maxton get close to her.  I loved the push and pull of Max and Kens's relationship. I loved the way that he pursued Kens and took the time to build her trust and break past her walls.  No two people deserved a HEA. They both had difficult pasts and the journey to overcoming their fears to finding a HEA was a great one. Overall, I really enjoyed Levitate. It was a quick and easy read for me. My only complaint was that I felt that the end was a little rushed. Don't get me wrong, I loved seeing the progression of the story, I just wish it didn't skip ahead as much as it did towards the end. Other than that, I loved this story. It had everything that I was looking for: angst, drama, romance, great friendships and even a couple of crazy twists. This is a really sweet story, and I would definitely recommend checking it out!   *I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

I was crossing my fingers because Kaylee Ryan started it out with my heart wrenching from her pain. I wished it wouldn’t last that long, because I can only take so much. Good thing that it didn’t. It may start out with that slow and painful emotion creeping, BUT – the moment they met started something wonderful, you wouldn’t want to put this down. Kensington is a beautiful, intelligent and incoming college senior student. Her past wasn’t something she talks about. The guilt from her past were overwhelming that she couldn’t move on. She tries to live a normal life, but something THAT horrible us hard to forget. Then there’s Maxton – this alpha, uber-hot, responsible male who doesn’t believe in love, no thanks to his mother. He watched his father give everything to her, and it wasn’t enough. Love destroyed his father, and he was adamant not to repeat his mistake. So, the walls around his heart were up. What he didn’t expect was to meet her – Kensington. She was everything he never expected. From the first time they met, and each day they come across each other. One by one, the blocks that surrounds his heart were torn down and before he knew it, he fell. Their chemistry was there. You can feel it with their easy banters, and the tension that was present when they were together. Still, Kensington has secrets, and Maxton has his uncertainty on his emotions. But who can stop love? Love is too powerful to stop, - no horrible past, no pain, no heartbreak can. Their story is just amazing – I love how it developed, and how it grew. It wasn’t pushed, it wasn’t forced: and I didn’t notice how long or short it has been. But slowly, they entered each other’s lives, healed the wounds from their past and finally allow themselves to fall. This novel proves that first impression does not always last. Trust is always earned, and not given, and most especially love will come to you the least you expect it. It’s another great read from an awesome author. Something that can have you levitating, and swooning in no time.

First impressions are so not good but they keep being brought together because of their friends. Kensi thinks Max is full of hims self and an ass. Max thinks Kensi is stuck up. He is not use being turn down. Which meeting Max is drawn to her and he just doesnt understand the pull. But with each touch, feelings start for both. Each of them don't understand the feelings are want them. You have two people that have hurt and trauma in their lives, they deal the best they can and when love comes knocking will they give it a chance. Home is where each other are, willing to Love be enough to chance their past. Will kensingtons pass Trauma make Max turn away from her. This is a 1- click book, Highly recommend.
