I never understood the draw of living in the middle of nowhere. Born and raised a city girl, I never had the desire to leave. Who would have thought a weekend trip to the country would have me questioning myself? It was more than just the country; it's him. The way he looks at me, treats me, that smooth southern drawl.
Am I willing to give up my legacy for her?
Am I willing to give up my dream for him?
Can two souls come together by the force of Southern Attraction?
Mike and Jamie met a few months ago, when she was involved with someone else. And, he was respectful. But, the connection was there.
The next time Jaime visits, and the start of the book, they are both single and there is the opportunity to explore this connection. But, Kentucky and Chicago aren't exactly close together, and Mike is reluctant to start a long distance relationship...and, so is Jamie, knowing that there was a possibility that things would end in heartbreak.
The story was well written overall, and it had an innocent feel to it at the beginning...although maybe innocent isn't the right feel. It felt comfortable, like you slid right into a relationship that was based on attraction, and affection and not just physical intensity.
There were a couple of places where I thought it was a little over-dramatic, but not enough that it ruined the story, just places where I thought the actions of the characters were such that I didn't completely believe that normal people would behave in this manner. Not all of the time, just a couple of instances.
Overall, I enjoyed and recommend this title.
This was my first book from Kaylee Ryan but it won't be my last. I enjoyed these characters and setting and read through it in one sitting. This sweet romance had me smiling and swooning.
I liked Mike and Jamie. I liked the realness of their relationship. I liked how the author handled their differences-city girl and small town boy, the physical distance between them. Again, it made their relationship so much more relatable. There is chemistry between them from the start and I loved following their journey.
The supporting cast of characters were interesting and fun enough to me that I want to go back and read the first two books in this series just to see their stories. I absolutely enjoyed Southern Attraction as a standalone, though, and had no issues following the plot or characters.
I thought the writing was fun and engaging. As I mentioned, once I started reading I didn't stop. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it. I look forward to more from this author.
