ARC received for an honest review
This latest book from D. Kelly is an absolute must read. The story is about an unconventional love between Rylee, Pete, and Nick. The characters are from Chasing Cassidy and reading it will help with the following of the story.
Rylee Stafford has always known she wanted a happily ever after, but not in the traditional way. Eight years of therapy have helped Rylee to understand what she wants and that it is all okay. The hard part for her is to see if others will understand her way.
Enter Nick and Pete. Nick has been in love with Rylee for as long as he can remember. Best friends with her brother Zack, he is willing to wait for Rylee to decide if he is what she wants. Pete is another friend that Rylee hooked up with at Zack and Cassidy’s wedding. He also is in love with Rylee and wants to continue their relationship. Rylee is in love with both men and wants them both. But Nick and Pete have a plan also.
This is an amazing story of the power of love. When you love as deeply as D. Kelly has written in Sharing Rylee, there are no obstacles in your way. This book is so well written that the complicated love story between these three seems normal. I cheered for Rylee in her coming to the realization she no longer has to hide. She could face her fears and get through this as a stronger person.
Well done D. Kelly!! I am in love with this story and everything about it. One of the best books I have read this year. Thanks for the chance to read it early.
Once again D. Kelly has sent me on an emotional roller coaster. This book is a must read. The characters will suck you into their world so you can see their story with them. I love how bits and pieces of them are released a little bit at a time. This book is beautifully written, the saucy parts are hot and steamy. The main story line of the book keeps you intrigued so much so you may not want to put the book down ever.
Rylee, is a strong willed girl just trying to find herself self and her place in the world. She knows what she wants and what she needs to get it, but can’t seem to bring her-self to open the door to make her dreams come true. Nick knows what Rylee needs and is willing to give her anything she wants; after all he gave her his heart in high school, he just can’t figure out why he’s not enough. When Pete re-appears into Nick’s life and whisks Rylee away for a few nights of fun under the sheets, Nick can hardly stand it. Nick wants more, Pete wants more and Rylee has friend zoned them both. How can you fall in love with 2 people and not break anyone’s heart.
I feel like she punched me in the gut, but I’m going to take Zack’s lead on this one. He never let Cassidy pull too far away, and I’m not going to let Rylee shut me out now.
Silently, I get dressed. She’s still standing by the bathroom with her arms across her chest. She doesn’t want to get close to me because she doesn’t want to admit her feelings for me.
“Rylee,” I say, walking toward her at a slow pace. She eyes me up and down and presses herself as close to the wall as possible. She’s not getting away from me.
I pull her into my arms and crush my lips to hers. My hand weaves into her sexy, just-fucked hair, and I pull her tightly to my lips. I kiss her with all the passion I’ve had building inside of me for years and she feels it. I know she does because she hasn’t stopped whimpering the entire time her tongue has been dueling with mine. When I finally slow the kiss, she whimpers even more, and when I slowly pull away, her fingers go immediately to her lips as if she’s trying to savor the magic we just shared.
“I’ll go for now, Ry, but not for long. I’m going to check in on you every day, but I’ll give you space and stay away. Don’t take too long because I want you now more than ever, Rylee. I always have and I always will.”
Sharing Rylee is not part of a series but it is a
