Synopsis:

Trust. Five Letters. One Word.

I’m the girl who doesn’t let anyone in. My world was shattered and turned upside down in one night. Since then I’ve been trying to live, if that’s what you call it, but fighting the anxiety of what happened and trusting others is hard. Each day is a struggle to reach for the unknown.

Truth. Five Letters. One Word.

I watched my father give my mother the world and the stars. She took everything from him, then left him as a broken man with nothing to live for. I told myself I’d never fall in love. I’m guarding my heart and emotions, only looking out for number one. The only way to have truth in any relationship is to stay true to yourself.

Just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, you realize your puzzle is unfinished. You find a piece you never thought you needed until everything changes with one touch.

After that…you levitate.

My Review:

I’ve been Levitated!

Let me just start off by saying, I love the title “Levitate.” Personally, I adore unique titles especially when the book lives up to it. Levitate means to “rise or cause to rise into the air and float in apparent defiance of gravity.” Not only did this happen in the book, but to me as well while reading it! I was simply, on Cloud 9 floating and definitely didn’t want to come down.

The main characters in this amazing read were Kensington and Maxton. I absolutely love the names. (Maxton’s best friend name was Brighton!) If I ever, get a chance to interview Kaylee Ryan, I will definitely have to ask her how she came up with these names. Again, unique and I’m an absolute sucker for that! I love how the characters shortened each other names and by doing so they knew what that meant, many times it was for terms of endearment.

Kensington and Maxton both struggled with issues from their past which made them both not trust easily. However, after meeting, their chemistry was undeniable and barriers were definitely torn down. I believe that watching their best friends Brighton and Nicole’s romance unfold in front of them, helped them see that, in the long run that’s what they wanted for themselves. It was great to read how they overcame their past trust issues and let each other in.

“Truth… five letters, one word. My heart knows the truth. The truth is that I’m already in love with her.”

There it is that word – trust. Five Letters, one word. My heart knows the truth. The truth is that I’m already in love with her.

Maxton was very possessive over Kensington from the start and even though these actions shocked him, it felt to him like the natural thing to do. Maxton was a total ALPHA MALE. I believed that’s what made me fall in love with him! (GAH…A TOTAL, HOTTIE!)

I felt connected to Kensington right off the bat! She loved to read and never leaves home without her kindle! (Totally reminds me of me!) She’s witty, which makes her more likable, to me. She embraced Maxton’s possessiveness after she figured out that he would do anything to protect her and I absolutely love that at the moment she realized what was happening she went with it and let her guard down.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book, it’s a sweet emotional love journey of two broken people. It was beautifully written, I love the words used and the creativity of the names. The book flowed smoothly and consistently. The characters were well developed. Selfishly, I just want more and didn’t want it to end!

“I want to make you levitate. I want to be so far inside of you that we can’t tell where you end and I begin. I want you to tell me that you’re mine.”

4-star
