Southern Pleasure by Kaylee Ryan

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 Readers 18+ years of age.

This book was such a refreshingly wonderful storyline! My first book from this author and she didn't dissappoint. Wonderfully written and Evan was the perfect male main character! Don't get me wrong I love the love story between him and Kinley but Evan was a perfect, loving man who didn't run at the idea of fatherhood! I just can't get over how great this one was and I was distraught when I reached the end!! Highly recommended!!!!!

Evan becomes a single father, not planned, but when his casual hookup becomes pregnant he steps up and proves that he is indeed a strong southern man. This whole prospect is daunting, but with the help of McKinley, his best friend's little sister it becomes more manageable. McKinley had a crush on her brother's best friend as she was growing up, but these feelings she has as an adult make those feelings pale in comparison. And seeing him with his baby, that takes it to an even higher level. These two fall in love as they spend time together planning for Evan's new addition, but it's never that easy, is it? This is an absolute must read! Five stars all the way!

Very, very good book, hard time putting it down. POV each chapter is either Evan or McKinley. I really liked that. It is 269 nook pages filled with heartache, conflicts, steamy loving, family support and just overall great story. Lexi is just a sweet, gotta love her child, she made the story funny and cute at times. Highly recommend this book!****

Enjoyable story! How a man would step up when he could have easily moved on and how a family came together to support him. I would read more of the authors stories.

Full Review is available at I received an ARC from the author for an Honest Review. Kaylee Ryan writes with a certain type of theme in all of her books. Good men that have big hearts. If only there were more men out there like her books, I think all women would be able to living a happy and long married life. Alas, we live vicariously through her stories. Her newest novel Southern Pleasure does not disappoint. I have enjoyed majority of Kaylee Ryan’s novels. Some are on my top 10 favorite list of New Adult books. When I first saw the cover of this book, I thought that we were going to maybe have a bad cowboy stuck in a bad situation and the girl comes in and changes him, but no we didn’t. We have a man that takes responsibility for his actions and steps up to be an honest man and father.

One thing you can always count on in Kaylee’s books is she always delivers cute and sweet romances. So When I need a cute and sweet romance I always turn to Kaylee’s books because she never lets me down. Southern Pleasure wasn’t a disappointment either. I loved both of the main characters (Kinley and Evan) and their families. After finding out Evan is going to be a father, and his ex-not wanting the baby Evan decides he wants to keep her and raise her. But, being a single father can be a tough job with the mother out of the picture. But, Evan does get help in the form of his best friends little sister. Kinley has had a crush on Evan since she was young. Evan hasn’t noticed her yet until now…. I honestly really really liked this book. I loved watching Evan face and concur his problems with being a single father. No, Evan wasn’t the greatest at everything, but that’s what I liked about this book. You got to see the struggles that he faced and overcame. You got to watch him grow as a father. I loved Evan and Kinley. They were adorable together. I really liked where the family was involved a lot in this book too. Overall, I really liked this book. I usually love Kaylee’s books so that wasn’t surprising. If you want a cute and quick read Kaylee is the way to go.

5 star I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, betrayal, sadness, and heartbreak. This is McKinley and Evan’s story. When Evan learns he will be a father he will stop at nothing to claim the baby. While he is all for taking over the responsibility of raising the baby he understands he will have to do it alone. When McKinley comes to town she helps him out any way she can. By helping decorate to helping when the baby is born. But what happens when someone else thinks the baby will be better off with them? Can he win being a single parent? Or will McKinley help him out for this also? Can he really trust her to just be helping? What happens when that particular help is no longer needed will she run? Or will he give her a reason to stay? I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I highly recommend this book.

AHHH!!! You can all finally get your hands on Southern Pleasure!! I have been waiting for this day!! You will all swoon over Evan.. (he is totally swoon worthy trust me!) Kaylee, Kaylee, Kaylee….. what can I say?? I despise writing reviews for books that I really really love due to the fact that I feel no matter what I say about them it is never good enough and won’t do the book justice. So that being said I’m going to rave about the book in the best way I can and leave you all wanting more! Let me start off by saying…. You did it again!! You produced a beautiful love story! Evan was everything a good Southern Boy should be and then some, he was pretty much perfect! I loved this story and it gave me all the feels…. I was happy, sad, anxious, elated, relieved, and fell in love with the characters. As with all of the books I have read that Kaylee has blessed us with I find that what I love most is how she throws you right into the story. I love the way her books suck you in and then spit you out all happy with that fuzzy warm feeling at the end. This book is no different! I give this (along with Kaylee herself) 1,000 Gold Freakin' Stars! Now hurry… Get this book… Today! Thank you Kaylee for this beautiful book.. and I can’t wait for the next one!

outhern Pleasure is another perfect example as to why I enjoy books by Kaylee Ryan. Her books are light with some drama, full of heart and men that make you swoon. Now, Southern Pleasure is a little bit different than the books I’ve read from Kaylee Ryan in the past. This one does have more of a serious tone to it, but it does not disappoint at all. Southern Pleasure is a quick and enjoyable read. It follows the story of Kinley and Evan and is told from dual points of view. I have to tell you, from the moment I opened this book, I was intrigued. I was immediately blown away by just how great a guy Evan is. See when we first meet Evan, he’s finding out that his now ex-girlfriend is pregnant, but she doesn’t want to have the baby. Evan is terrified of being a father, but will do anything to keep his baby. This was the moment I fell in love with Evan. I admired his strength, his love and determination. He knew he was in over his head, but was determined to give this baby the life that it deserved. And lets face it, he totally dodged a bullet with his baby’s mama. I was not sad to see her leave the picture. Kinley was the perfect friend. She always had an attraction towards Evan and really stepped up to the plate when Evan needed her most. Of course over time, their connection grew. And I have to tell you, it was so much fun watching these two fall hopelessly in love with each other, but trying to fight every step of it. Southern Pleasure is just one of those books that makes you feel good. You can’t help but have a smile on your face while reading it. Yes, there is some drama, but it’s not over the top and makes total sense to the story. Southern Pleasure is a great friends to lovers story. I loved how close Evan was to Kinley’s family. I loved the friendship and love that Kinley and Evan shared; and just how far they would go to protect each other. And Evan was totally swoon worthy. He had me swooning so many times!! Fans of Kaylee Ryan, you are just going to love and devour this book! *I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*
