Publisher's Summary

From New York Times bestseller Kendall Ryan comes a *steamy forbidden standalone romance.*

The first time we met was at a party.

Your ex arrived to show off the person he'd left you for last month, and you asked me to pretend to be your date.

I was more than happy to help. You were attractive, smart and witty--and that kiss we shared? It left me wanting you for days.

The second time we met was in my office on campus where we were both surprised to discover you were the new master’s degree student in poetry that I would be working with. You promised to be professional. I did no such thing.

The late nights and intense study sessions spent alongside you majorly throw me off my game. I want you, and I fight with myself daily over this fact.

I know I'm crass, that my sexual innuendos and dirty mouth annoy you, but I live for those two bright spots of color in your cheeks. If that's the only reaction I can get out of you, I'll gladly take it.

You hate Mondays so every Monday I slip an anonymous poem into your bag and your smile gets me through the week.

I think I'm falling for you, and I know it's wrong. I know that I'm only supposed to be the adviser to your program and nothing more, but here's the thing. I think you're falling for me too.

xo, Zach

Kendall Ryan’s Best Book Yet!

XO Zach starts of with the main characters, Poppy and Zach, at the same party where they meet when Poppy asks Zach if he will pose as her date since her ex is at the same party with his new girlfriend. They end up sharing an amazing kiss, Zach wanting to see more of Poppy but her telling him that it isn’t a good time for her to be dating. She tells him if it’s meant to be they’ll see each other again. It must be meant to be as Monday morning she meets with her new - off limits - academic advisor who turns out to be Zach.

XO Zach has the steam (and fun dirty talk) that you come to expect from a Kendall Ryan book but it also has a whole lot of heart. I liked that this book was more of a slow burn and we got to know Zach and Poppy and the people in their lives really well before they fully got together. The tension and build-up between the characters is great! I have to say though that Zach’s mother stole every scene she was in making her one of my favorite characters.

Andi Arndt and Sebastian York are wonderful in this. They always bring a top notch performance to anything they do and this is no exception. I find that I am fully engaged and present while listening to each of them and their portrayal adds another layer in bringing a story to life. They are able to make you feel their characters and are two of my personal favorite narrators.

I really enjoyed this book! As the headline says it is my favorite book by Kendall Ryan yet. If you are looking for a fun, steamy, sweet, funny and endearing read/listen this is the perfect book. It had me smiling a lot, laughing a lot and swooning just the right amount. I highly recommend it!

Full of Ups and Downs

Loved the overall story line! Loved that the single mom kept her feet on the ground and was level headed about real life situations! Narration was spot on! Andi and Sebastian are an amazing power couple that know the book and feels before jumping into narrating!!!

Such a sweet read

First of all the narrators were perfect. Sebastian’s dark sexy voice to Andi’s girl next door sound. Perfect ten for the book. As for the book itself, it was a make you feel good kind of romance with a few good laughs for good measure.

kind of tired

I really liked this book, however I'm growing tired of hearing the same narrators. I feel like I'm listening to the same writer with different love stories. I would to hear from other narrators.

Love the narrators!

Love me some Sabastian York and Andi Arndt duo, good story just not big on the female character or her name, she got on my nerves with her back and fourth... love Zach and his mom.. funny Cuz I’m a single mom and I have only one child named Zac too! Again it was good just my opinion of his love interest I didn’t care for, nor her name. Again my opinion but loved Zach XO!

Pretty Good

xo, Zach by Kendall Ryan (Audiobook)
Narrated by Sebastian York and Andi Arndt

3 Stars - This book was pretty good. I liked the premise, however from the summary I was hoping for more letters/poems than there was. Zach and Poppy had good banter between each other and the story moved along nicely.

Both narrators did a wonderful job as usual.

hmmmm idk about this book

I read a lot of reviews before this book. I thought it was sweet but didn't give me butterflies or make me have any emotions when reading it. I think the Suspense could have used some work.

Everything the Publishing Summary Said it would be!!

Funny, sweet and a slow build romance! The back and forth and push and pull was dramatic, but it was all worth it at the end.

Fun and forbidden love

Xo, Zach by Kendall Ryan was a feel good, hot, and sweet story. The characters were endearing, and the storyline fast-paced. A great read that you could just sink into and enjoy.
