Perfect Embrace, a Mason Creek Series standalone novel, by Kaylee Ryan is NOW AVAILABLE!!
Get ready for the swoony single father vibes and all the angst that comes along with the Learning To Live Again trope!

PEKR1The day he walks into my bookstore with his adorable twin daughters, I know my life is going to change forever. The chemistry is tangible, the tragedy his truth, and my schoolgirl crush, even after all of these years, is still alive.
Home is where the heart is, and Mason Creek is mine.
Until Grayson walked into my bookstore, I thought happily ever afters were just fairy-tale endings. Looking every bit the handsome hero, his intensity creates sparks I’ve never dared to dream about. The single dad of adorable twin girls doubles as a firefighter by day. But there’s more. Grayson is also my old high-school crush.

This beautiful, kind-hearted woman has been under my nose my entire life, and now, just when I need her most, she’s here- loving my daughters like her own. But guilt can’t be reasoned with, especially when finding love again.
I’ve learned the hard way that second chances don’t happen often. So, when I’m lucky enough to get mine, I’m going to embrace it with everything I have.

I was quick to learn, my heart wasn’t ready for Laken and Grayson’s story! And that ending… SO MANY TEARS!!! Kaylee Ryan, you turned me into a sniveling ugly crying mess!! And I wouldn’t have had it any other way…

Perfect Embrace by Kaylee Ryan is the eighth book in the Mason Creek series. Take it from the girl who decided to read this series out of order, Laken and Grayson’s story can be read as a standalone. If you love the learning to live again (man/woman loses a spouse) and the single father concept, the chances are in your favor for loving this romance!

Kaylee Ryan is my go to author when I want a sweet small town romance with that proverbial all the feels moment. I know when I grab a book of her’s off my shelf I’ll get more than a romance, I’ll get an epic happily ever after and I’ll get the character connection that I long for. Perfect Embrace is now a book in a long list of favorite books I have from this author.

Laken is the sweetheart of the story. This woman is one of the MOST understanding characters in the literary world. To love a man who is still in love with his deceased spouse, I can’t imagine that would be an easy task to take on going into a relationship. She wants to add to their lives, not replace those who can’t be there any longer and for this fact alone, Laken’s character is hard not to fall in love with right off the bat.

Holy crow, this woman made me cry so many tears! I’m not going to lie, I was a weepy mess throughout this story. I also loved Laken’s occupation of owning her own bookstore and I loved that she initially bonded with Grayson’s twins, Harlow and Hayden, first. And in a roundabout way we have both Harlow and Hayden’s Grandma’s to thank for that. Ahhh, you have to love meddling families, even if they don’t know their meddling. These two girls are so freaking adorable and their bonding time with Laken made for some of the most heart wrenching moments.

Now let’s get to Grayson Davis. This man has the weight of the world on his shoulders and it all stems back to the night he lost his wife in a traumatic accident. Left to raise two twin girls isn’t the easiest of tasks for a single father to get through, but with a small army behind him (his parents, and Mason Creek) he’s found his way through the thick of it all. The pain still lives on in his head though and day by day he can’t help but wish the love of his life was still standing by his side. Seeing the pain through his thoughts and his memories, broke my heart. It’s been a long time since I wanted to reach into a novel to give a character a hug and tell them everything will eventually be okay. Holy hell, did this man rip at my heart and slash my soul to pieces. I can’t even begin to describe the emotional roller coaster he was on throughout this novel. The love was strong in this one, but his guilt was stronger. However, It’s not all angst and feels because eventually the swoon sets in and holy hell does this man bring the swoon, and let’s just say, Laken is one very lucky lady!! I can’t get over how sexy his single father vibes were. The way he was so protective of his daughters… Yep, I was pretty much a goner and there was no help for me what-so-ever. Grayson may just be my new favorite Kaylee Ryan book boyfriend.

Having read my way through Kaylee Ryan’s publication list, I’m familiar with her writing style and the romantic and sometimes angsty as hell twists she likes to throw at her readers. However, as I was reading through Grayson and Laken’s story I wasn’t expecting the angst and the heavy dose of turmoil going on in Grayson’s thoughts.

I’m all over the place with this review… as I am with every book I love.. So to put it plain, simple and to the point, Kaylee Ryan is a rockstar at writing small town romances with ALL THE FEELS! If you love this vibe, don’t hesitate to pick up Perfect Embrace today!

Peace Love and Happy Reading,
