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.
Southern Pleasure was an interesting book! Kaylee Ryan has created a unique situation that I haven’t read in a NA book before. Evan wants his daughter, but the girl he knocked up doesn’t. At first, I thought, “Ok, this is going to be a book about a guy trying to be a single dad and falling in love with his neighbor”. Its more than that. It is pretty angsty so be prepared for that. Evan is a likable character for sure and so is Kinley (although at times I found her kind of flat). I got a little tired of the will they admit it or won’t they back and forth. Overall, this is a great book if you are looking for ‘the feels!’
PS: While this isn’t my favorite Kaylee Ryan book, I enjoyed it. Want to know which book is my favorite? Emphatic! Gah you have to read that book! Hurricane Kacen is one of my favorite book boyfriends 🙂

Bleeding Love by Harper Sloan, Four Week Fiance by J.S. Cooper, All Thats Left to Hold On To by Ella Fox…then you will probably like Southern Pleasure!
Kaylee Ryan has had a passion for reading since she was a little girl. That passion has slowly led to spinning romantic tales, and a one-click addiction. When she doesn’t have her nose stuck in her kindle or fingers glued to the keyboard, you can find Kaylee hanging out with friends and family. She loves all genres of music, and enjoys scrapbooking. She lives in Ohio with her husband (her real life happily ever after) and their rambunctious little boy.
