🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Fantastic, this book will melt your e-readers or your headphones (if you prefer audio) I listened to the audio and O.M.G the slow burn at the start was great. But when Ryan and Kendall ignited holy hotness. This book was fire! Another round of applause for Kennedy Fox.

Wonderful!

I listened to the audio version of this book. Loved, loved, loved this novel! The writing style is fantastic and the stranded together trope along with the best friend's brother and the opposites attract trope are some of my favorites. The Covid theme is very timely.
The narrations by Tor Thom and Emma Wilder were incredible. I could listen to them forever!
I was given a complimentary copy of this audiobook. All thoughts are my own.

Oh sweet baby Jesus, I need my own Ryan!!!

I cannot say how much I loved hearing this story. Tor and Emma are back as Ryan and Kendall and they did an exquisite job. There are just certain phrases Tor says that are music to my ears.

We are first introduced to Ryan and Kendall in The Two of Us and at the end of that book we find out they ended up stranded at the cabin. Kendall is Cami's best friend and Ryan is Cami's brother and Eli's best friend. It isn't that Kendall and Ryan 100% despise each other, they just don't know who the other person truly is. While stranded at the cabin they find out each other is pretty much nothing like they thought and they give into their desires...and boy are these two STEAMY!!!!!

Once they are able to return to civilization they both fall back into their regular lifestyles and while they each want to contact the other neither one of them does. Kendall overhears Ryan make a flippant comment about her at Eli and Cami's wedding and it is that incident that makes Ryan wake up and realize he loves Kendall and doesn't want to lose her. She is the perfect fit for him.

Naturally it wouldn't be a Kennedy Fox book if there wasn't an ending that leaves us wanting the next story ASAP but alas we have to wait.

Great story and narration

Everything KennedyFox writes is amazing. I love the dynamic in this story and how the story goes on from the first book in this series. I wouldn’t recommend reading out of order because you always meet key people when you follow along in order. I love the relationship build up and it’s always nice to get another hot Dr character if you haven’t read Evan bishops story definitely look that one up as thank me later 😍 can’t wait for the next book in this series it sounds like it’s going to be great already!

Loved it

Another great romance story. Kendall is going to be setting up her best friends cabin for a romantic honeymoon for her and her new husband. Unfortunately she is doing it with Ryan her best friends brother and long time crush. He works non stop and she is surprised he took any time off to help with this endeavor. On the way to the cabin, a fierce snowstorm arrives. They make it there but not long after they find out they won’t be going back home in a day like they thought. Then they loose power. This gives the two plenty of time to get to know each other better. Ryan has thrown himself into his work since the pandemic that hit over a year ago and isn’t looking for a relationship. His work is everything and he has the wrong assumptions in his mind when it comes to Kendall and who she is as a person. They slowly find their way to each other but will it last past the snowstorm? Loved these two and the narrators did an awesome job

Love this series!

The Love in Isolation series is just the perfect series to read during this quarantine life that we’re in. It's sweet and hot and has grown to be a favorite of mine.

This story is about Ryan and Kendall who are going up the cabin to set it up for Cami and Eli’s honeymoon. However, it’s in upstate New York so the weather is unpredictable. The two get stuck in the cabin due to being snowed in from a crazy blizzard. The two have a tense relationship because Ryan is always so tense from working so much as a doctor in NYC and he’s always thought she was a spoiled princess. The two are crazy attracted to each other and decide to be friends with benefits. The spark when they get together? Can someone turn up the AC, please?

I love how Kendall is more than just a rich girl. She loves her family, her friends and helping others. Even though Ryan was uptight at first, his heart is in the right place. He wants to help as many people as he can as a doctor like Kendall wants to help people through her charity work. The two were made for each other even if it took him a while to realize it.

I was given a code to listen to the audiobook version. I adore Emma Wilder. Her voice always makes the story even more enjoyable and her male voice is great. And Tom Thor never disappoints with his deep voice.

An Enjoyable Story

Ryan and Kendall knew each other since they were young. Kendall is Ryan's sisters best friend.

So when Ryan's sister decided to spend her honeymoon in a secluded cabin he and Kendall go to check things out stock it up and make sure everything is in working order. But unfortunately it's snowing so bad that they get stuck at the cabin

You can just imagine what happens when two people are stuck in a place with nowhere to go. So they get to know each other and thing just seem to get more intense from there, especially when one of them has been crushing on the other for a while now.

This was a different type of story. Played during the pandemic and Ryan is a doctor as well so was a bit weird. I thought it would be off putting but it was actually a sweet light hearted story to read. And I am a fan of Tor Thom and Emma Wilder💖 so I loved the narration kept me hooked on the romance. And I am a definite fan of this duo's writing😊💖

My Thoughts on The Best of Us

I may be mistaken but I feel like this story was even more steamy and intense then the previous Isolation book. Maybe because it was a little more in the future and didn't focus as much on the time during the pandemic pre-vaccine. But I do like that this story took a moment to focus on what could be a reality for most of us. Our mental and emotional state even when things start to get better.

I enjoyed the history the two main characters had. How they had a common background but that it effected them differently in some ways but still pushed them both to help others.

I also loved how this story and these characters were brought to life by Tor Thom and Emma Wilder. I had absolutely no complaints about their performance and look forward to more from them in future.

Excellent narration by Tor Thom & Emma Wilder - love her.

Ryan and Kendall!

Ryan is a doctor who has faced the health crisis that we are all dealing with head on but it has changed him. No matter how many hours he works or what lives he saves it is never enough and all he wants is a little rest and relaxation. Finding himself stuck in a cabin with his sister’s best friend who he believes is an entitled princess was not part of his plan.

Kendall has always been attracted to Ryan but whenever they are together the sparks of animosity fly. He may see her, but he has never taken the time to know her and now that they find themselves together with no way out the outcome might just surprise both of them.

There is so much more to both Ryan and Kendall than first appears and seeing them truly discover who the other is fun to watch. Their connection to other goes far beyond the physical as they finally acknowledge what their hearts have wanted all along. I thought that the narrators did a great job of bringing out both the witty banter and the angst of the story.

4.5 Stars

It feels like every KF book I read gets better and better and this seems to continue that trend. The last Love in Isolation book featured the sister and best friend of the couple in this one, so even though technically this can be read as a standalone, it would give you much greater context if you read that one before this. This was a pretty steamy one. Mix in the banter and the smexy tension between Kendall and Ryan and you have this scorching little number. I loved how they used their isolation to get to know each other better in every single way and it was a really great read. Forced proximity is always a trope that'll hook me in so this series has me on the hook until it's over. I volunteered to read and review an early copy of this and all opinions are my own.

For a lighter romance this is a great listen.

The Best of Us gives us Kendall and Ryan's story. We know from the end of The Two of Us that they are snowed in at the cabin after they went the to get everything set up from Cami and Eli's honeymoon. These two characters have great chemistry and their story can be read as a standalone but it was nice having that previous knowledge of them from the last book. I already loved both Kendall and Ryan and couldn't wait to see how they were going to get on stuck in the cabin together and it did not disappoint.

The Hero and heroine go from getting on each others nerves, to getting to know each other, to having serious chemistry while snowed in. When they loose power was when the story really cam to life, making the best of their food rations, booze and cold winters nights it was easy to get lost in the romance between Kendall and Ryan. When the roads are cleared, what happens then?

Back in the city and back to their lives Kendall and Ryan's story takes on a new layer and you see another side to these two. A distance, yet their connection is still so clear. When Ryan says something he shouldn't have in a moment of stupidity it all comes crashing down. Kennedy Fox never fail to suck me into their stories and this one is no different. The Best of Us in on the lighter side and not as angsty as other books in their back catalogue but just as enjoyable. Seeing how Ryan and Kendall figure out their feelings outside of the cabin, despite the mistakes each make, they are just a likeable couple you want to root for.

With the final few chapters leading into the next book too I am excited to see how Piper and her hot bodyguard Tristan cope whilst hiding out until the police catch her psycho stalker. I listened to the best of us in audiobook format narrated by Tor Thom and Emma Wilder. Emma is one of my favourite female narrators and her male vocal is so good! Tor and Emma together worked really well and their performance kept me engaged throughout and they absolutely did the story justice.

Wonderful Story & Narration🎧A Captivating🔥Delight!

Kennedy Fox delivers another wonderful novel in their awesome “Love in Isolation” series. This book can be enjoyed on it’s own but I do recommend reading and/or listening to the first book “The Two of Us”, it an awesome story too. This book is Kendall and Ryan’s story and it is a brothers best friend romance with a side of opposites attract. Kendall is Cami’s best friend and Ryan is Cami’s brother, Cami is the lead character in “The Two of Us” she met her husband to be while quarantining up in the cabin. Kendall and Ryan go up to that same cabin to help decorate it for the honeymooners, but they wind up getting snowed in and stuck to spend time together. Both Ryan and Kendall come from affluent families, Ryan is a doctor and this is the first time he has taken any time off since the pandemic started. While they know each other a long time Ryan does not have such a great opinion of what Kendall does with her life, he thinks she just lives off her family’s wealth and is a social butterfly. But he soon realizes he thought wrong, that there was much more to Kendall than he gave her credit for. I loved their story, it is beautifully plotted and includes, some drama, heartfelt and emotional moments, some great humor and hot romance. It was nice to see Cami and Eli again, I am looking forward to what comes next in this fabulous series. Kennedy Fox, thank you for another awesome story.

🎧📚🎧 And for the narration, Tor Thom and Emma Wilder are fabulously talented narrators and voice artists. They continue to bring these characters to life, giving each their own voice and personality, as well as heart and attitude. Their portrayal of the characters is spot on, Emma played Kendall’s role with perfection and Tor Thom did the same for Ryan. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another awesome listen.

Kendall and Ryan are scorching 🔥🔥

Oh, how I have been waiting for this story!
It was so worth it.
Kendall and Ryan were explosive.
Their chemistry, their want, their need and their banter had me absolutely riveted.
I didn’t want it to end!
Tor and Emma did an amazing job with narration,
