Southern Pleasure

Genre:  New Adult & College



They tell you that a parent’s love is all consuming. I never put much thought into it. Not until the minute I heard her take her first breath. That little girl is my world. I’d do anything to protect her.

My ex signed over her rights and her family vowed that my daughter didn’t exist. Now that she’s gone, they want my little girl. They’re trying to say I can’t give her what she needs.

I’ve known Evan all my life. Our families farms run parallel with each other. He and my brother Aaron have been best friends for as long as I can remember.

What they’re trying to do is wrong. He needs my help, someone he can trust and I’m more than happy to do it. I volunteered without hesitation.

I should have thought about what it would be like to have our lives intertwined. I should have thought about what would happen when our time together ended and how my heart would feel when I had to walk away.

Suggested for readers 18+ years of age.

My Review:

5/5 stars!!!

I haven’t read a Kaylee Ryan book I didn’t love, but this one was by far my favorite.

Evan and McKinley have known each other their whole lives. Evan is her older brother’s best friend and her best friend. She has secretly liked him from afar. Now Evan needs her in a big way and she is right there to help him. The friendship evolves into more, but neither will acknowledge it. An arrangement has to be made that threatens everything blooming between them.

The relationship between Evan and McKinley is very well done.  The fact that they are friends, but maybe more, is palpable and gets stronger as the story develops.  Truthfully, the entire plot line is nicely done, never over the top, and the plot twists are just right.  Ryan’s writing flows well, making it an easy, emotional read that will make you swoon.

That is all I will say about that because you need to read the happy goodness that is this book yourself.  There is an HEA and this is a standalone.
