Kaylee Ryan is one of those authors that has the ability to make you feel a range of emotions. Southern Desire is both heartwarming and yet heartbreaking, it's a a truly beautiful tale. This story is an amazing romance that had me in tears, laughing and smiling. The second book in the southern heart series, it can be read as a standalone, but the characters from Southern Pleasures appear quite frequently and play a major role in the story line.
These characters are complex, endearing and their story is completely engaging. Whitney is such a strong character, with a heartbreaking back story. Aaron is her perfect match passionate, loving and caring. Although their chemistry and connection is strong, their relationship builds quite slowly friends first then lovers.
This is really a beautiful amazing story. I cannot recommend this book enough and cannot wait for the next Kaylee Ryan release, she is quickly becoming one of my one click authors as soon as she releases a book.
