Publisher's Summary

New stand-alone from NYT best-selling author Kaylee Ryan.  

I’m over this year, and I’m over relationships. I’ve learned the only person you can count on in life is yourself. Moving forward, I’m living for me. Working toward standing on my own two feet, that’s my goal. Funny how meeting him changed my path.   

It’s been years since I’ve been back in this small town of West Virginia for more than a day or two. Spending time here brings back a lot of fond memories. When I stopped by an old friend’s bar, I was expecting to grab a drink and catch up. What I didn’t expect was her.  

We share an undeniable attraction, but we continue to fight it. Until one night in Vegas changes everything.

loved it just as much in audio as I did in print

great narration. loved the dual POV. Both performers do a great job of really expressing the emotion in the scenes while reading. I'm always hesitant of audiobooks because you never know how the narration with turn out but this one was wonderful.

Maxine Mitchell makes a repetitive story decent

All hail Maxine Mitchell. She has become one of my favorite narrators. Without her I couldn’t have finished the book. The heroine is annoying, so is the grandfather that holds the worlds longest grudge. So you grandson stopped coming over, sucks but dropped everything to come see you when you’re sick. And the heroine. The whole woe is me, I’m an orphan is over done. I found myself getting so irritated by her whiny self-deprecating narrative. Finally, the story is so repetitive. The same line is used over and over and over and over and over again. This book should be half the length. My ultimate vote, skip it.

Fun romance. 1POV. HEA. Standalone.

This is a “hot damn” haters to lovers/insta love if that makes sense. It is a somewhat easy listen with a rich and sexy Hero, a damaged heroine and a sprinkling of jealous ex boyfriend. The narration is pretty good. The HEA is good. PLUS there is a recipe for No Bake Cookies .... am I the only one that has never heard of these?

Falling for a (found) family.

The story of Rhett and Saylor is a slow burn romance, but what really stood out to me was the found family trope. Sometimes I feel like it is not mentioned enough in romance. Maybe because it really isn’t about the couple, it’s about the people as well as the couple.

Let’s start off with Rhett. A confident man who is with his father’s side of the family business. His grandfather is in ailing health and he goes to his business to get it moving again. There’s some distance between them. They were essentially best friends until the businesses pushed them further apart. This was a time for healing that.

Saylor is a woman who was dealt a bad hand in life. A foster kid who was saved, only to lose her only family - her foster mom - suddenly. At the same time, her college boyfriend breaks up with her. Without a family or a home or even friends, Saylor tries to move on.

Fate lands her at a bar and meeting Molly and Jake. Insta-friends with that couple. Molly helps Saylor start anew even though she treads carefully because she’s alone now. Molly won’t have it. And the found family is born.

I really love when friends become family. Sometimes blood doesn’t guarantee a connection. Saylor knew this with her foster mom, but she also didn’t embrace it. It’s a learning curve and this book let’s her find her path. Sure we have plot devices (drunk men in bars are horrible to waitresses) and Vegas, but we have this love story that goes beyond the couple. I found it to be special and warm.

The narrators did well. I’m personally not a huge fan of Maxine’s male voices, but I really like her females ones. Teddy is great, even though I did expect a little bit more out of the Grandpa Rhett chapter (that’s just me, I know it).

Loved it!! 💓💓

Big fan of Teddy Hamilton. He was so good in this book. Loved the story and thought the whole family dynamic hit home. I love when Maxine does her male narration. Thanks for a good old fashioned love story.

Hey....

I loved this! The narration was perfection. The characters wonderfully developed and totally knowable! Rhett 3 was swoon-worthy! Everyone who mattered was special.

Hot as hell, nothing crass.

Totally worth the credit!

A side note... the editor/writer/proofreader failed catching a few mistakes. If there is SO much snow that UTV’s (no, not atv’s) are used to go “sled riding” than you can’t turn around and take the UTV out to the pond to go skating...., too much snow! And when you were gone Thursday night and Friday night and got home Saturday you don’t then tell your friend the story about Saturday night, it was Friday night. SO, if little things like these don’t bother you to distraction you will find NOTHING to complain about with this highly enjoyable tale.

Perpetual STate of swoon

This book was truly just everything to fill my heart. I loved the characters and the banter, laugh, and feels. I am not even sure where I can begin with this one other than my heart is so full after having listened to this story. The story line was well thought out and perfection. The narrators were sheer perfection in how they brought these characters to life in a way I was living the story right there with the characters.

Good story, but I didn’t like the female narrator

The story itself was interesting, and I really liked the male narrator’s performance, but something about the female narrator annoyed me. For the majority of the story she sounded whiny, and I was having a hard time not disliking the female main character because of it. I much preferred when the story was told by the male narrator. His portrayal of Saylor didn’t have the same effect, so I am left thinking that I just didn’t like the whiny, timid tone of voice from the female narrator.

I was so bored

I nearly stopped listening to this so many times because I was bored. There’s no chemistry between the characters and the story drags. The sheer amount of detail in some of the scenes about completely inconsequential stuff was ridiculous. I really don’t need to know the exact process she goes through to leave the house for example. More words should have been on the story and characters, not on really boring stuff.
