Publisher's Summary

From Wall Street JournalUSA Today best-selling, and RITA Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan comes a captivating second chance romance like only she can deliver....

The boy who always felt like mine is now the man I can’t have....

Dig a little and you’ll find photos of me in the bathtub with Ezra Stern.

Get your mind out of the gutter. We were six months old.

Pry and one of us might confess we saved our first kiss for each other. The most clumsy, wet, sloppy...spectacular 30 seconds of my adolescence.

Get into our business and you’ll see two families, closer than blood, torn apart in an instant.

Twenty years later, my “awkward duckling” best friend from childhood, the boy no one noticed, is a man no one can ignore.

Finer. Fiercer. Smarter.

Taken.

Tell me it’s wrong.

Tell me the boy who always felt like mine is now the man I can’t have.

When we find each other again, everything stands in our way - secrets, lies, promises.

But we didn’t come this far to give up now.

And I know just the move to make if I want to make him mine.

Excellent story, amazing narrators.

This is one of my favourite audiobooks ever. Kennedy’s writing is so crisp but poetic. So lovely. And I adored the narrators. Both were wonderful and it was extra special hearing Jakobi Diem’s voice after falling in love with it in Grip!

WE LOVE BLACK LOVE

This was such a beautiful, second-chance/childhood friends-to-lovers story!

Kimba and Ezra so were so magnetic and I love how the story incorporated parts of their childhood and then focused on them as adults; it really have insight to their shared connection and bond.

Kimba was so strong, smart, successful and independent and Ezra, while quiet and pondering, was very sweet and sensitive.

A lot of important issues were tackled throughout the story (like in the All the King’s Men duology, which this is a spin-off of) that I could relate to as a black woman.

Both narrators were also excellent (yay for black voices)! Kennedy Ryan is such an underrated gem of an author and I can’t wait to read more of her works (especially if they’re like this one and the All the King’s Men duology bc chef’s kiss)!!!

Queen Move is a winner worthy of all the ⭐

Let's start with the fact that Kennedy Ryan is one gifted writer and we can all feel honored to read or listen to her words. We are not worthy!!! I feel I need to bow down to her greatness!! The way the story is so beautifully intricate and layered with emotion and twists for the start that as a listener you can't help but get invested and ignore the world just to listen. This is an amazing comparison to the Kingmaker Duet and for sure one of my favorite audios of the year. Okay... Now let's devote so well deserved time to Jakobi Diem and Eboni Flowers. What a powerhouse of a performance!!! Really!! They deserve a huge standing ovation with all the confetti and champagne because they simply took this story and these characters and they SLAYED!!! This is a must listen, worth the credit and well worth the ride. Just pure magic!! Loved it!

Ezra & Kimba (aka Tru)

*****Spoiler Alert*****

Audible review. Dual POV. Standalone following the Kingmaker duet. While not required, I recommend reading the duet first as several characters are mentioned that have no relevance to this story and aren't given any detail. I enjoyed both narrators voices but I wish someone would teach Jakobi Diem how to pronounce Bubbe & pho. Trigger warning: cheating is normalized in both the political arena and in both characters' families' lives.

Ezra & Kimba born on the same day, introduced when they were infants and their families were neighbors are now 37 year old professionals. They were separated after their mothers had an affair. 20 years later Ezra has started a school for underserved children and is living with his long time girlfriend and their son. Kimba has overcome her childhood stutter, is a campaign manager and political activist recently diagnosed with perimenopause. When the two finally get together Ezra has just ended his decade long relationship with the mother of his son and hasn't told anyone. They soon find out that she is pregnant with their second child which of course sends Ezra and Kimba in different directions for over a year. Ezra & Kimba reunite for the third time, quickly marry, lose a pregnancy and are pregnant again at the end. JP

Awesome

Kennedy Ryan you are awesome. I loved this book so very very very much. I could not put it down. The love between Kimba & Israh was something I so enjoyed reading about. The mixture of cultures and race’s were amazing. Thanks to Eboni & Jakobi for bringing these characters to life.

They could have tried.

Good story but the male narrator was terrible. They couldn't find someone who could pronounce the Yiddish and Hebrew words correctly?

Queen Move

Let me start off by stating the books that I have read by Kennedy Ryan never disappoint. I may not agree with how she tells the story and what I think should and shouldn’t happen but she always delivers a beautiful HEA in the end and #QueenMove is no different. I love the book & wish she would do a short story update of Ezra and Kimba life.
