The world knows her face . . .
Mean girl. Goddess. Bitch. Supermodel Sofie Baston has earned those labels . . . yet they don't scratch the surface of who she really is.

He's a big guy with an even bigger heart . . . but will that heart be open to Sofie once her darkest secret is revealed?
. . . but only one man knows her heart

Then Sofie's deepest wounds are reopened by the powerful, ruthless man who made them. When she musters the courage to take him down, her world shatters. Now Trevor is determined to help Sofie pick up the pieces so they can build a future together. The challenge will be convincing his ice princess that it's safe to melt in his arms . . .
I LOVED This Book
"Nothing works without you. You're my fire. You know that, right?"
Sofie Baston has lived her whole life in the spotlight. She's made her living from what's on the outside, whether looking down from billboards, or walking the runway. Trevor Bishop is a true man of substance, working to help those that cannot help themselves. Also a great judge of character, Trevor knows that there is more to Sofie than what's on the surface. Helping her to see what he sees may be his biggest challenge ever.
Oh, my Lord, this book. I could not get enough of this book. UNTIL I'M YOURS is the first book by Kennedy Ryan that I have read, and I can happily say that she has found a longtime fan in me. This book had me feeling everything. Sofie, for all of her perfected outer witch, has so much more going on. As one of the rich and famous, the world should be her oyster, but events of her past have her searching for something more, something greater. I love that Kennedy has made Sofie more than a caricature, and given us a heroine worth getting to know. She is stronger than even she knows, and watching her growth is truly inspirational.
And Trevor, oh, sweet Trevor. He may have spoiled me for future book boyfriends for a very long time to come. His determination to show Sofie that her spark is there, ready to be fanned into the fire that will drive her, his unwillingness to take her at face value and enter a meaningless hook-up, his dedication to family, friends, and the larger world, make him one of the most compelling male leads that I've read in a while.
"Is that what I am to you, then?" She looks at me unsmilingly. "A challenge? Something to be achieved?"
"I think you're a woman who hasn't even begun to show the world who she is." I consider her for an extra second. "I think in some ways that's something you're still trying to figure out yourself, and people engaged in that process fascinate me."
UNTIL I'M YOURS is the fourth in the Bennett series, and can easily be read as a standalone, but I loved it so much that the first three are fast-tracking it the top of my TBR. I loved the characters, the story, just everything about this read, and it will stay with me for quite a while. One of my favorite books so far this year, UNTIL I'M YOURS gets an easy 5+ sexy, swoony, 'now, THIS is what an epic love looks like' stars from me. Add this one to your TBR, and do it quickly, because you must read this book.
Great 3rd installment of the Bennett series. Perhaps there is a long lost cousin to continue the series!
Bravo Kennedy Ryan this book is awesome!
This is an ARC for an honest review.
This book is powerful! I can honestly say that I did not like Sofie in the first book. I thought she was arrogant and pretentious. After reading this book I have to take back those words. She was just misunderstood, her parents didn't care, she was abused, and tried to take it the only way she could using her looks and wits! Trevor is her savior and see's through all she is hiding!
