Revelry was a slow burn read that taught us many things. One was No matter what you may go through or have been through at anytime, sometimes you need to do what's right for you, regardless of time.
This book was relatable on so many levels no matter your lives circumstances.
Wren and Anderson met at a time where both are completely lost in life. Wren is newly divorced seeking clarification in herself mostly, but is trying to assure the guilt she feels about the failure of her marriage. She's on,what might be a cliched, finding her mission, but it's much needed break away from the stresses and strains of her life as she knows it.
While Anderson he isn't living at all, he's consumed by guilt and is merely existing day by day since the tragedy of his past.
What they found in each other was how to live again without feeling the pressure of guilt hanging over them, they found so much more and I loved reading how they both evolved to the place of making them whole.
This was my first Kandi Steiner book and it was far more than I could have ever expected, sometimes you see the hype, but it's not until you read for yourself. I loved how the story felt real and how it drew you into the powerful magic of sometimes the unexpected is just what you need.
In Revelry the heroin Wren escapes the city and her heart breaking divorce to spend the summer in a small quaint mountain town. Wrens a fashion designer and since leaving her husband she's lost her mojo so she sets out to "find herself" and come up with a new line of clothing..... Then she meets Anderson !
Anderson is moody and hidden with his own scars to bare. I loved him, just wanted to cuddle him .... He's hot too ;-)
He soon becomes a distraction for Wren.
This is a beautiful romance with some steamy scenes and a little humour too. Totally recommend !!
Two central characters with a great supporting cast. Two people hurting from the past, both needing to move on but not really knowing how. Loved sharing their story, their emotions, their ups and downs. A slow burn book which kept me reading late into the night. Do I recommend it ? A resounding YES from me 👍
Without spoiling this for anyone this book about two 'emotionally damaged' people coming together to discover love again. I'll be honest, a couple of the chapters felt purely like filler and could have been taken out with no impact on the story. That's the only reason I couldn't give it 5*
“Things are easier to fix than people are.”
Kandi Steiner is one of those authors that just delivers romance with ease, that honest, sweet, emotional romance that us hopeless romantics crave to read and Revelry was just that with a cherry on top. But what also Kandi Steiner delivers with Revelry is a life affirming read, one of those books that makes you sit back and question your choices, your current situation and whether you yourself would do anything differently. Are you one of those people that settle? One of those people that do what people expect of you rather than what your heart tells you to? We all have a little bit of Wren in us, but when it becomes stifling and suffocating…that is when it becomes a problem.
“…one day I realized that every time I gave him what he wanted, I lost a piece of myself…I left before I lost the last one.”
Wren is a successful fashion designer and is newly divorced from her childhood sweetheart. Her mojo has gone in everything and she is just really feeling “lost” in every sense of the word. Wren decides she needs to get away for the summer and rejuvenate, find herself and get her creative juices flowing once again and so she rents a cabin. A cabin in a small, infectious community that welcomes Wren with open arms…well most of them. Wren was an adorable character from the outset, relatable, honest, a little feisty when needed, independent and yet vulnerable. I loved the fact that she made hard decisions when everyone else was against her, she listened to her heart and her head, she wasn’t afraid to reach out for more no matter if she broke her own heart in the process. Failure was not in her vocabulary until it came to her marriage and that was a bitter pill to swallow.
“…and so an empath loved a narcissist. The more you loved to make him feel whole, the more power he had.”
Anderson is a man crushed with guilt when he needn’t be. Grief has been consuming him for six years and he ceased living the day he lost his cousin who was more like his sister. Now a man of few words, isolation and work are his only friends. Anderson keeps himself busy to forget but his memories are never far from his thoughts. On the outside he seems cold, detached and cantankerous, but underneath that unapproachable façade was a vulnerable man desperate to forget and a man desperate for love, even if he didn’t know he needed it. Anderson was a man that you could not help but fall in love with, I am a sucker for a broken man and this one wheedled his way in effortlessly.
“…so when my head hit the pillow, I put the first board over my heart. But I couldn’t find the will to nail it in place.”
Two people lost, one desperate to find themselves, the other desperate to forget, not exactly a match made in heaven, that is until the Steiner magic happens.
“…when his strong arms cradled me like I was the only thing in the world he cared to protect, all those sexual molecules in my body that had been asleep for years woke in a frenzy.”
Kandi Steiner is an author whose words get better the more she writes, every book shows growth in her writing and Revelry is a masterclass in what I call immersion reading. The vivid descriptions and the little community that she brought to life in Revelry was infectious. Through stunning imagery, I lived a summer in Gold Bar along with Wren and I came to love these characters just as much as she did and I definitely didn’t want to leave either.
“Stop asking yourself what other people will think or what you should do and listen to your heart. You ignored it for years with Keith… don’t take away its voice now that you’ve finally stopped to hear it.”
Revelry was a fantastic second chance at love and life story, it was cute, low on the angst but huge on the feels and that emotion that I constantly crave in the books I read. My eyes may have leaked a little but that was through sheer character connection and that is testament to Kandi Steiner’s writing ability. Nothing gut or heart wrenching, but just overcome with emotion as these two characters slowly bring each other back to life. This story was just as beautiful as its setting.
“You know, I never saw you coming. You were the last thing I expected to find out here.”
