Can’t Fight It (Fair Lakes #3) by Kaylee Ryan &Lacey Black
From the moment she showed up on my doorstep, I knew our lives would never be the same. I felt it deep in my soul that she was going to change us forever. I didn’t know how, but I knew she was important. I tried to maintain the distance between us, but it was too strong to fight.
With each passing day, I saw a future I never planned flash before my eyes—one with a fairytale ending. The only problem is that someone wanted to take that away from me, away from us. I just found her, and no way am I letting her go that easily. Hollis is family, my family, and I’ll do whatever it takes to protect her.
Colton Callahan wasn’t what I expected. I was in desperate need of a fresh start, ready for something new, but all it took was one look at those intoxicating blue eyes for me to reevaluate everything. I tried to stay detached, but something about him just called to me.
It took no time at all for me to fall. Not only for the man I share a living space with, but also his son, Milo. The problem is my past is not too far behind, trailing behind me and slowly catching up. When it finally does, I have a choice to make—run away, leaving them behind, or stay and fight, potentially putting them in danger. Either way, I could lose it all.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is one of the most amazing writing partnerships evah! This is the third book in a series put out by this duo of authors and each one is more amazing than the last! Colton & Hollis’s story picks up where Just Getting Started ended, and it’s everything I hoped for, and so much more!
Colton was career army, until his life is thrown for a loop, and everything changes. But he doesn’t regret his decisions. On the contrary, he has jumped into his new life feet first, and is taking each new day as the gift that it is. But then, when he least expects it, one more surprise is thrown in his path. The question is, is this a good surprise, or a bad one?!?
Hollis is an enigma. She shows up, knowing no one, holding her past close to her chest. I could tell she was hiding something, or running from something. But I had no clue how crazy that something was!
Colton and Hollis had an immediate, scorching connection, and it just kept getting hotter! But underneath it all, was a sweet, perfectness that was undeniable. Their story grabbed my heart, and just would not let go! Definitely a swoon-worthy book, quintessential in it’s own small town way! Absolutely what I needed, exactly what I wanted in a romance!
