Tropes: Small Town, Single Dad, Instant connection, slow burn, Love after Loss.
Series: Kincaid Brothers
At this point if Kaylee Ryan writes it I am reading it. I cannot put into words how much I LOVE this Kincaid Family. Starting with Ramsey’s book Never with Me one could tell the small town of Willow River, GA was a special place.
Stay Forever show just how special Willow River is. Kennedy is headed to the small town to help care for her grandmother who fell and broke her leg. The distraction of not being home and caring for her grandmother was just what she needed as the ink is just dry on her divorce.
Declan’s whole life has been his daughter Blakely for the last 5 years. Declan has put himself kind of on the back burner, not dating at all since he found out he was going to be a dad. The tragic loss of Blakely’s mom put even more pressure on Declan.
I really love these two together. I love that once Declan realized the connection he had to Kennedy he was not willing to let this opportunity go. Kennedy was so thoughtful in her care of Blakely it made Declan’s attraction to her that much more intense.
I really enjoyed this book. Kaylee Ryan writes Family dynamic so well. She also has this way of pulling you into the family chaos and you become absorbed with it. The story is told in a way that brings you full circle to what defines home and family. The Powerful piece to this story is when you are truly loved unconditionally you are home. Declan and Blakely needed Kennedy as much as she needed the two of them. Throw in a matchmaking feisty Grandma and this is a Fantastic Read! I am in love with this series and I really cannot wait for the next brother to fall.
