R E V I E W ➠ Perfect Embrace by Kaylee Ryan

(Mason Creek #8)


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.
My feelings for Grayson haven’t changed, but everything else has.
Having lost my wife three years ago, my world revolves around raising my daughters. Then one day, I look up and see past my grief, and there stands Laken. 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.

RELEASE DATE: July 15, 2021

NOT my first read by the author and she happens to be a one-click author for me so when I saw this I knew I had to get it. And boy did it break my heart and mend it!

I don’t even know where to start on this, the famous words all of us reviewers write when it’s a beautiful book but hard to put into words without giving it all away. I will start with that I really loved both Hero & Heroine. They went to HS together but didn’t run in the same circle. While one was a shy, nerd type who crushed on the other, the other had his life already planned out. Years later the heroine is still the same sweet girl, now just a beautiful woman who is sweet and has a heart of gold. She runs the book store in town and is content with her life. She doesn’t get out much but has great friends and is in her hometown that she loves very much. The hero is a single-dad of twin girls (4 years) and not only is he broody but also just lost (for a reason). His girls go to the heroine’s book store every week and have gotten to know her very well. Even thought the hero really didn’t have a lingering feeling for the heroine like she did for him, when the heroine get’s thrusted into the hero’s life…he has to wonder why?! It was the cutest way the hero asked the heroine out and I gushed myself over it. The twin girls are the sweetest most adorable things and well let’s just say that the heroine’s dream may have come true but the hero’s feelings and life are anything but normal.

“It was just a kiss.”
“Just a kiss, my ass. Your face is flushed, and you’re holding onto that door frame for support. That man literally kissed your knees weak.”
“He’s really good at it,” I tell her,
