From the bestselling author of Weightless and A Love Letter to Whiskey
Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.
She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it's official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren't.
Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her.
Anderson Black is perfectly fine being lost.
He doesn't care about the town's new resident -- he's too busy fighting his own demons. But when he's brought face to face with Wren, he can see her still-fresh wounds from a mile away. What he doesn't see coming is his need to know who put them there -- or his desperation to mend them.
Sometimes getting lost is the way to find yourself. Sometimes healing only adds a new scar. And sometimes the last place you expected to be is exactly where you find home.

Revelry by Kandi Steiner This is Wren Ballard and Anderson Black's story. Oh my! This story grabs you from the start. Wren and Anderson are both dealing with really difficult personal and emotional issues in their life. You can feel their emotions. A great story that covers so many emotions. Be prepared to laugh and at times cry. I fell in love with Wren and Anderson. They are so perfect for each other. The chemistry and connection between them is really intense. They have been through so much and deserve a chance at love. Will they be able to work through their personal issues to take a chance on love? A great book that's entertaining, sensual, and heartwarming! You just need to read it to experience all the emotions of the story. FYI, contains mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
4.5 stars Wren is a young woman trying to find herself. Newly divorced and lost mentally and emotionally, she needs a break from her life. She takes a vacation to a mountain town to rediscover who she is as a woman and designer. Anderson is a man who has been lost for many years. He has merely been “existing” in life; until he sees Wren. Wren is trying to find herself, Anderson is simply going through the motions of life; when they see each other for the first time, they both know that things are about to change. Wren’s divorce has destroyed her emotionally. She hasn’t fully “grieved” for the loss and she knows in order to move on, she must. Anderson has been blaming himself for an accident that wasn’t his fault. Reading how these two damaged people have come to terms with the cards they’ve been dealt and how they rise above everything is a sight to be held. Ms. Steiner has a way with her writing that draws the reader in and reaches into their heart. You feel the words as if they are ingrained within. Revelry was my first read from Ms. Steiner and won’t be my last.
What a STUNNING book. Revelry is a story about life. About two people trying to survive. About love, friendship, dreams, guilt and hurt. Wren and Anderson are relatable characters. You can't help but understand why they are struggling, why is so hard for them to let go of their insecurities, how they cope with things that happened with them. You'll see that they don't match, but they will fit flawlessly. I love a broken hero so I knew I was going to fall for Anderson when I read the blurb. But reading Revelry I also fell for Wren and all the amazing secondary characters. Even the non-human character had an incredibly detailed personality and every scene with him put a smile on my face. One of my favorite things in this book was the scenario that Kandi painted. I felt like I was there, I could almost smell the mountain air. I felt envious of Wren. I wanted to be there with all of those incredible neighbors and that nature. When I finished the book I wanted to cuddle under a comfy blanket and just be there, remembering the story. I hope you get this book. I hope you feel like I felt reading it. It was a wonderful read.
