Better Together (A Cedarville Novel, #4) by Bree Kraemer

When Ryan Ball took in his nephew after his brother and wife died in a tragic car accident, his life was turned upside down. He’d needed help and that help meant going to Cedarville, Ohio, a town that in only a few days had sucked him in and made him never want to leave. So on a whim, he packed up his apartment and became the town’s newest resident.

He swore to himself that moving had nothing to do with the sexy brunette that he’d had an instant attraction to the first time they’d met.  Which was a total lie. If ever there was a reason to uproot your whole life, Addison Scott was in the top ten.

She drew him in with her smart mouth, gorgeous looks and big heart. Dating however, wasn’t in his comfort zone and he wasn’t sure how to navigate his new life while raising a child and falling for Addison.

One thing was for sure though, he wasn’t going to give up. Not when everything he wanted was within arms reach.

Join the rest of the gang as they welcome Ryan to Cedarville!

Better Together by Bree Kraemer is the fourth book in her Cedarville Series. I had not read the first three when I read this one and I am sure, I would have gotten much more out of it had I read the first three … I felt that I missed knowing who the rest of the Cedarville gang was. Better Together was a sweet and steamy story of Ryan Ball and Addison Scott. Ryan is a perfectly groomed tax lawyer outside and a clumsy sweet boy inside who has learnt to fake it and have it under control at any given moment. Addison is an extremely beautiful smart young woman who has led quite a solitary life as she has been shunned by other women who thought she might go after their boyfriends/men when she starts hanging out with them … Ryan’s life changes overnight when his brother and his wife die and he gets the co-guardianship over his young nephew and he moves into this true American small town Cedarville, Ohio where he get this amazing support network of great group of people. I loved how Bree has built that crazy inviting small town world with these lovable characters that make one wish to move there as well! I enjoyed the journey she took us on along with Addison and Ryan when they were figuring out the way to each other! I know I will definitely go back and read the first 3 books; actually, I already downloaded the first one! Take a chance on Cedarville and this group of young people that show that there is hope for everyone!

Better Together – A Cedarville Novel Book 4 by Bree Kraemer – 5 stars Better Together can absolutely be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading this delightful series in order because it’s best to fall in love with the series as they are written. Cedarville is an idyllic small town where everyone is welcome and everyone knows each other. In a previous Cedarville story, Cedarville was described as a town where “everyone knows everyone else and people were nice, like really nice. Almost nauseatingly so.” (Sounds like a great place to live). The Cedarville Series is built around a core group of friends and their adventures. This is the story of Addison and Reed. Addison is an excruciatingly beautiful girl who grew up without friends because “girls are either intimidated by her or think she is going to steal their boyfriends” – that is UNTIL she meets the girls in Cedarville. Reed has been working very hard in life to build a career as an attorney. He is lonely because he works an unbelievable number of hours each day and doesn’t have time to be social. He is the typical city boy. Addison and Reed meet and while each feels the spark, they ignore it and go about their lives. Their friends see things differently and this is their story. Here is one of my favorite quotes of the story: “Ross and Rachel made it work…and so did Ted and Robin”. “Those are your examples? Seriously? They’re characters on TV shows. Plus, Ted pined for Robin for years.” This is one of those feel good romances with little angst, drama or conflict. It’s to the point and delightful to read. I’ve mentioned this before, but I would absolutely recommend this series to my mother.

Better Together By Bree Kraemer is the fourth book in the Cedarville Novel series. I wouldn't suggest reading these books as stand alone you need the backstory with all the characters to truly understand how they all fit together into one big dysfunctional family, and how Cedarville Ohio is the little lake town that brings everybody home. This book follows Ryan Ball a young professional who lives in Baltimore MD. Who regularly works 60 hours a week. Though that all changed when his brother and his wife were killed in a car accident leaving behind their son Reed. He decided he is going to help raise him along with Carly who is technically reed’s sister. His moving back might also have something to do with a certain leggy brunette he felt instant attraction too the first time he saw her. Addison didn’t know what to think about Ryan moving to Cedarville especially after their last encounter where he just disappeared. Is she going to be able to resist temptation or the lust she feels just looking at him? She doesn’t really have a choice because as soon as Ryan moves into Carly’s home he becomes a part of their family just like everyone else but she can’t easily allow herself to give into temptation as she feels she is bad at all things bedroom related and Ryan has no clue how to have a relationship. Can they overcome their fears and love each other or will they be unable to see past their differences?

Better Together (A Cedarville Novel Book 4) by Bree Kraemer 5 Stars I LOVE this series!! I'm thinking this book might be my favorite of all of them, but that doesn't mean much because I think each one is my favorite when I hit the last page. This is my new feel good series. This author has me wanting to move to Cedarville, and I want to be a part of this group of people. Thank you Bree Kraemer for writing an AMAZING series, and I hope there is more to come from Cedarville. This is Addison and Ryans book and as soon as I knew they were getting their own book I have wanted to read it, and I was not disappointed. Addison is Tony's sister as well as his partner at his security firm. Ever since she became friends with Tony's girlfriend Carly and her friends, her life has not been the same. She has never had any good friends as girls always seemed threatened by her and how beautiful she is. Since being brought into Carly's group she has finally found a place where she belongs, and she loves them all. She hasn't had a lot of luck with men if her past was any indication then she would just do without, until Ryan moved to Cedarville, a sexy complication she did not need. Ryan just made the biggest decision of his life, leaving the big city and moving to Cedarville where he could raise his nephew with the help of Carly, his nephews half sister. He was never one to be spontaneous, everything was always planned out perfectly for him, but now he is moving to a small town, with no job, living at Carly's, and no real idea what he was going to do. He just knew he loved the town, loved the new group of friends that welcomed him with open arms, and he loved his nephew, who would be happiest in Cedarville with all of them. It didn't hurt that while he was there visiting he had developed quite an attraction to Addison, and if being close to her was part of the deal then all the better for him. You have to read this book to watch these two amazing people who have comfort zones that do not include dating figure out how to date. They have to learn to trust and be honest with each other, which is not easy for either of them. Will Ryan make it in his new life, and can there be a future for two people so scared of a relationship? I would recommend reading these books in order, just for all the back stories, it will just make for a much more enjoyable read. LOVED LOVED LOVED this book!!

Better Together (A Cedarville Novel Book 4) by Bree Kraemer is the fourth book in her A Cedarville series. This is a stand alone book but I would suggest that you go back and read the other three books too. They will give you background information on some of the characters in this book. One of the things that I enjoy most about an author is when they write a series that can be read as a stand alone that they include previous characters in their current book. This is exactly what this author has done. It is great seeing what happened to previous characters. I enjoyed her creativity with these characters and the story line. These characters are true to life and will pull you into their hot, steamy world. This story is engaging and will keep you reading until the end. Find out what happens to these characters as they finally give each other a chance to prove their love to each other. Ryan Ball's life was turned upside down when he took his nephew in. His brother and wife passed away in a car accident and now he is left to raise their son. He decided that he needed help and that meant going to Cedarville, Ohio. What he didn't expect was to be picking everything up and moving his life there. He is determined that his decision has nothing to do with the sexy, Addison Scott, that he met a few weeks ago. Their attraction was instant. But he would be lying to himself, she was the one of the top reasons to be moving to Cedarville. Dating wasn't one of the things he was comfortable with and wasn't sure how he could manage his new life raising his nephew and falling for her. One thing that he knows for sure, he won't be giving up anytime soon not when everything he has ever wanted is right in front of him. Addison and Ryan's relationship is one that they both were attracted to each other the first time they met. Addison's problem is that she doesn't want to take Ryan from his nephews time. Will Ryan convince her that this is not the case at all? She has a past that has left some emotional scars, will they work through them so they can find their HEA? She has a smart mouth, gorgeous body with a big heart. He also has a big heart but is less confident when it comes to his new life. He is worried about what she will think if he decides to stay in Cedarville. He has lots of patience with her but yet something is stopping her from giving herself to him. You will find yourself pulling for this couple and hoping that they will finally get their HEA. You will love this couple. They are great together and really are compatible. The secondary characters are just as great and are in support of these two. These characters add to the flow of the story and really does complete it. Find out what happens to this couple as they are faced with everyday struggles. They are learning to trust each other, will they fully give themselves to the other? I am not sure how many books by Bree Kraemer that I have read other then all of them in this series. I can't wait to see which characters she will write about next in this series. Bree lives in Ohio with her husband and three children. She writes her stories with either a lot of hot steamy sex or sometimes a little. This story is fast paced and will keep you reading until the end. I read this book in one sitting as it will keep you engaged until the last page. I needed to know if they find their HEA. I highly recommend this book as I know you will want to see what happens to Ryan
