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 for readers 18+ years of age.


I. Loved. This. Book! Southern Pleasure truly touched my heart in more ways than one, and I absolutely fell in love with all of the characters. Kaylee Ryan’s writing style was excellent and I loved reading every single page of Evan and McKinley’s story. They both captured my heart from the very beginning, and I loved reading their story from both of their alternating points of view. There was literally nothing that I didn’t love about this book and I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better romantic and heartwarming story than the one I received. Every aspect of the story was well balanced and flowed easily, and I loved the interactions between all of the characters – especially Evan and McKinley. The epilogue was absolutely perfect and I honestly loved how the author concluded Evan and McKinley’s story. Southern Pleasure truly exceeded my expectations in every way, and I cannot wait to read Southern Desire – book two in the Southern Heart series – about McKinley’s brother Aaron!
