I hope you guys are enjoying reading these as much as I’m enjoying doing them! I am absolutely hooked to Kindle Unlimited. It’s going to be a good way for me to successfully complete my series a month challenge for 2018. Read here if you missed that post 🙂
So this time, I read 4 books by Kaylee Ryan. To be perfectly honest, I’m not quite sure what made me pick her books. I just saw one that looked semi interesting and threw caution to the wind.
Without further ado…
Uhhh.. what’s that term? Sweet Sassy Molassy?
Holy shit this was a fantastic book. And absolutely one of the sweetest things I’ve ever read in my life. So Evan, our main love interest, gets told by his ‘girlfriend’ that she’s pregnant and that she wants to abort it. Sweet, sweet Evan wants her to keep the baby. Keep the baby and give it to him to raise alone.
(I’m pretty sure this book is actually a fairytale)
So anyways, he has no fucking idea what he’s doing, no clue what a baby needs and in walks McKinley. He’s her best friends sister and neighbor since they were young. She waltzes in and immediately helps him prepare for the baby. She’s there through everything.
So of course… shit then goes down when they’re all perfectly happy with a bouncing baby girl and figuring out how to live. The ex’s parents want to take the baby, citing that Evan can’t possibly raise that baby alone and give her all she needs(insert eyeroll here).
But through all of this, McKinley and Evan fall in love because why the fuck not? It’s adorable and sweet and awkward and steamy. Oh my life, I love this book.
My fucking heart.
The second book in this series was just as sweet and cheesy and wonderful as the first one.
Where has this book been all my life. It’s making my little romantic heart burst.
Alright, so they’re insta-lovey, they’re cheesy and honestly, kind of predictable. But even though the climax of the novel isn’t some crazy huge reveal with big fights that you never see the characters getting through, it’s so… real. It’s not fluffed up with random twists and turns just to get a word count in. It’s so perfect in it’s simplicity.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again.. some times you just want a book that you can lose yourself in. If it has good characters (which this does), good character development (which this does) and sweetness, it’s totally worth being simple.
I loved reading more about Aaron and him getting his HEA. I loved watching Whitney learn to get past the death of her mother and grieve. I know from experience that that’s a hard thing to do and some times, even a year or more later, the emotions hit you all over again and it’s like your heart is breaking all over again. It was kind of tough to read at some points because I dealt with the situation myself. But I think the author dealt with it realistically and respectfully and that’s really all I can ask for.
My heart was breaking while reading this, but it definitely patched it up at the end of the novel.
Have tissues near by… or a steel heart. Otherwise, you will cry.
Okay. What the hell makes these books so god damn addicting?
Again, this one is fantastic! Southern Attraction follows Mike, Whitney’s cousin and Jamie, Whitney’s best friend.
Seriously, from pretty much the first page I was completely into this. I absolutely love how each consecutive book gives you updates on the other couples. And not just in passing.. the other characters are major participants in the current book and I fucking love it.
This series is the shit. Seriously, I want more.
I think what made this one a huge hit with me was that it started with Avery and Dylan in High School together. As weird as it seems, it almost gave the story more depth. It was nice to read a second chance romance that didn’t just throw you into it and having one of the main characters miraculously returning to their home town and dreading running into the other main-character.
Naw, the way Kaylee Ryan did this was fucking sugary sweet.
Kay, so the stalking part, or bordering on stalking because he just missed her and wanted to protect her and make sure the way okay, eh.. that was kind of creepy. I don’t care how sweet or pure the intentions are, if you describe it as ‘creeping in the shadows’, it’s just creepy.
Still, though, I love high school sweetheart romances,
Well, that’s all for this author. Time for me to move on and find the next amazing hidden books.
If you guys like sweet, swoony, quick romances, check out some of these. And let me know what you think!
Until next time,
