It’s always been her, and I just never realized. Now that I’m looking at her that way, I can’t unsee it… and I don’t want to. Alyssa has been my best friend since kindergarten, and these intense new feelings could cost me our friendship.

She’s the one I share everything with, good or bad. It makes sense to share my life with her. But I can’t risk losing the only woman I’ve ever loved, which will happen if she doesn’t feel the same.

Alyssa is loyal and kind and takes my breath away. I just wish it hadn’t taken me so long to figure out what’s been right in front of me.


Falling for my best friend is easy, but keeping it to myself while figuring out what to do about it is the hard part. Because in a small town, everyone knows everyone… and their business.

Sterling is the perfect guy—handsome, with a heart of gold and a protective streak. I know he’ll do anything for me… except maybe admit he feels the same way I do.

So, I’m stuck in limbo and am in love with my best friend. Just when I work up the nerve to finally tell him how I feel, everything changes with a confession and two words: stay tonight.


OMG! I’m telling you all, these Kincaid Brothers may be the death to me! I can’t stop swooning! Each book is greater than the one before!! Kaylee Ryan, what are you doing to me!?

Stay Tonight by Kaylee Ryan is the third full length novel in the Kincaid Brothers series. If you’re new to this series, here’s some sound advice… run to your nearest computer/kindle/eReader and download the prequel Stay Always followed by the full length novels Stay Over, Stay Forever, and Stay Tonight!! Trust me, if you’re in the mood for a swoony read with all the feels, DON’T HESITATE!!! Pick up this series! You won’t regret it!!

Stay Tonight is Sterling Kincaid’s story and how he found his happily ever after with the most unexpected person, in his mind. His best friend, Alyssa. 

Alyssa is caught between a rock and a hard place. She loves her job, but hates the fact that the manager is a royal pain in her ass. A vacation with her best friend, his clan of brothers, and their wives is exactly what she needs. Alyssa’s life is about to change in a drastic way. When her friends decide to question her about her and Sterling’s relationship the feelings she buried beneath the surface decide to resurface. Life as she knows it has changed. For better or for worse, that has yet to be determined.

Sterling Kincaid has everything he could possibly want out of life. He has a career as a welder, a clan of brothers he can depend on whenever he’s in a jam, and a best friend who would do anything for him and vice versa. But all that is about to change, when he’s suddenly woken up to his feelings for Alyssa. He’s about to come to the realization that Alyssa may just be more than his best friend, she may be his soul mate. Only time will tell.

My Thoughts:

My heart loved every moment of Sterling and Alyssa’s storybook romance! I literally can’t stop smiling. I finished this book a few days ago and I’m still sitting here feeling a heart full of love with a wide smile on my face. Kaylee Ryan has a way of leaving her reader’s with that fulfilled feeling. I start her novels with this high level of expectations and she always seems to bump that benchmark position up a couple more pegs. And that’s why she will forever be one of my favorite authors!

Alyssa and Sterling are two peas in a pod. I knew the moment I opened this novel, these characters would quickly consume my every thought. Alyssa and Sterling have been best friends since grade school. They lived their lives doing everything together and to this day they follow that very same routine. I loved their thick as thieves vibe. When there was one, you wouldn’t have to look too far to find the other. 

Now let’s talk about these characters. First up is Sterling. This man, as like all the other Kincaid brothers, is a man who lives by the code of honor, kindness, and respect. There is not one single mean bone in the man’s body. He’s the epitome of the boy next door. I loved the fact that Sterling’s characteristics leaned heavily towards the sweetheart scale. This is a man you can depend on, but don’t let that fool you, he does have a tiny spicy side. Especially after he came to terms with his feelings for Alyssa. I loved Sterling! My heart is still giddy for this Kincaid brother!!

And then we have Alyssa. Alyssa is one of a kind, but given the fact that she grew up and gained respect from the Kincaid Brothers, that was to be expected. The thing I loved most about Alyssa was the fact that she was independent, but didn’t shy away from receiving help from Sterling. I also loved the fact that she mentally worked through her feelings towards Sterling before diving head first. Her friendship with Sterling was the most important relationship she knew in her life, and she was going to do everything in her power to keep it from being tarnished. These two were honest to god, Couple Goals throughout this whole novel, even when they weren’t a couple. I loved how everything flowed easily between the two of them. I knew there was more to Sterling and Alyssa than they thought and I remember numerous times I begged and pleaded for them to FINALLY confess their feelings for one another. There is no denying, Kaylee Ryan definitely brought the slow burn game to this one.

Overall, I have a new favorite Kincaid Brother!! You know, they say the hardest reviews to write are from your most favorite novels. That rings true with Stay Tonight by Kaylee Ryan. It’s only the fifth day of 2023 and I already added a book to my 2023 favorites list! I’m not kidding when I say this series gets better with each book written! Kaylee Ryan is a rockstar at her craft and I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us with the Kincaid Brothers series! I need more Kincaid’s in my life!
