From the bestselling author of Weightless and A Love Letter to Whiskey
Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.
She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it’s official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren’t.
Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her.
Anderson Black is perfectly fine being lost.
He doesn’t care about the town’s new resident — he’s too busy fighting his own demons. But when he’s brought face to face with Wren, he can see her still-fresh wounds from a mile away. What he doesn’t see coming is his need to know who put them there — or his desperation to mend them.
Sometimes getting lost is the way to find yourself. Sometimes healing only adds a new scar. And sometimes the last place you expected to be is exactly where you find home.


This book has all the feels. Kandi Steiner has quickly become one of  my favorites within the past year, hands down. Weightless got me started on a new adult kick, and Revelry has really driven that genre home. I loved every second of it.

The setting is magnificent. A cabin in the woods?? Does anything get more romantic?

Wren is so hilariously relatable. And Anderson is everything a girl dreams of. ALSO there’s a precious feline named Rev who might have been my favorite character, just maybe. Wren’s heartbreak is so different from Anderson’s but it brings them together in the most beautiful way. I think this book is exactly what many people needed to read, just like Weightless, to know they’re not alone and that they’re worth everything the world has to offer. Down below will be a rant about loving yourself and knowing your self-worth, so be sure to keep reading if you struggle with that! 🙂 I loved Revelry and I know you will, too!


Rant/Love Yourself

Alright, let’s get super real here. We all make mistakes. We all do our best to learn from them. BUT we all still need to learn to forgive ourselves after making mistakes. Mistakes aren’t just about realizing you did something wrong and feeling bad about it; they’re about correcting your mistakes and moving on. I’m a young lady here, but I know PLENTY of people who feel terrible in the relationship they’re in or they feel embarrassed for having a divorce, so this is for anyone like that out there…


You deserve to be happy.

You don’t have to stay with someone years or even just months after being with them if you start to realize that’s not who you thought you married/got together with. You can leave, and you can be happy about bettering your life in that manner. There’s nothing wrong with it. You don’t have to stay with a Keith for the rest of your life if every day you don’t feel like you’re their everything. Go find someone who thinks you hung the moon and sun and created the whole universe. Granted, every couple has a few disputes, but if you’re not happy 90% of the time, you absolutely have every single right to find the right way to be happy.  Just a reminder if the book didn’t lay it all out.

It’s okay. Do what makes YOU happiest.

Love ya’ll!


About Kandi Steiner

Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa with her husband. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer.

Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).

When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.
