I Kind of Loved It!
This book…. it’s amazing, well written, and has a beautiful story! I fell in love with Evan almost immediately and only wanted the best for him.
When we meet Evan, his life is about to change, he finds out he is going to be a father, and a single father at that. As ecstatic as he is about it, he’s nervous and has no clue what he’s going to do, but he knows he needs his child in his life. When his best friend, Aaron’s, sister moves back home after graduating college and offers to help him, he never expected to fall for her.
Kinley has had a crush on Evan for as long as she can remember, and seeing him after all this time makes her heart flutter even more. She offers to help, and the two of them grow closer in prepping for Evans baby to arrive. Both of them start to feel things for one another, but for the longest time don’t act on it. I loved the sweet things inside of Evan’s head when he would see Kinley and but hated how he would beat himself up over how he was feeling because of Aaron.
Watching these two dance around one another, and not acknowledge the chemistry between them was frustrating at times, but sweet at other times. Kinley wanted Evan in any way she could have him, and she never thought he would feel the same way about her. When things quickly heat up between them, and Kinley comes to Evan’s rescue I was like YES they are finally going to figure things out, but it didn’t go exactly as planned.
Kinley and Evan are perfect for one another. I loved Evan for how protective he was of his baby and how much he loved her without even meeting her yet, but I fell even harder seeing him with Kinley. Kinley falls in love with Lexi and will do anything to protect Evan’s baby. You can see how much she adores her, and how much love she has for this tiny human being.
Not only is this a beautiful love story, but it’s also an amazing story of friendship, and growing up. It was obvious to everyone around these two that they loved one another, but neither one of them dared say anything to each other for fear of their heart breaking. When things finally came to blows and the truth of their feelings came out, I was crying happy tears.
Kinley and Evan’s story is amazing and I didn’t want it to end. I must say the way that Kaylee wrote this book I was extremely happy with how things ended for these two, as much as I didn’t want to say goodbye to these characters, my heart was happy with how the story ended. I love, love, loved Southern Pleasure and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a friends to lovers romance with a few twists thrown in. I hope one day we will get Aaron’s story, as this man definitely needs some love in his life!
