Fair Lakes Series Box Set by Kaylee Ryan & Lacey Black

Blurb:

Take a stroll along Fair Lakes with three full-length novels featuring former lovers, best friends, and surprise new love interests.

It’s Not Over, book 1:

Gwen
Lately, life definitely isn’t how I envisioned it. I had it all. The house, the job, the husband. Until one day, I didn’t. Now, my ex-husband is back, fighting, and ready to prove to me that we made a mistake. I’m not sure if he’s right, but I know what my heart wants, and it wants him.

Harrison
Why is it that you don’t know the depths of your mistakes until you’ve already made them? I knew signing those papers was a bad idea, but I thought that’s what she wanted. I’m in for the battle of my life. I have a plan, one that will prove to her that, it’s not over.

Just Getting Started, book 2:

Gabby
My life isn’t exactly going as planned. I’m basically floating up a certain creek without a paddle. Desperately needing a new place to live, I receive an offer I can’t refuse. Unfortunately, it’s from an uber-sexy manwhore that makes me want to punch him in the face and then kiss him.

Chase
Gabby Connor; there is no request too small in my eyes, including offering her a place to stay. It’s damn hard to keep my hands off of her. I’m pulling out all the stops. I’m tired of being in the friend-zone. It’s time to take what I’ve always wanted.

Can’t Fight It, book 3:

Colton
From the moment she showed up on my doorstep, I knew our lives would never be the same. With each passing day, I see a future I never planned. The only problem is someone wants to take that away from me. I just found her, and no way am I letting her go.

Hollis
Colton Callahan wasn’t what I expected and took no time at all for me to fall. Not only for the man but also his son. The problem is my past is not too far behind and slowly catching up. Now, I have a choice to make—run away or stay and fight.

My Review:

Fair Lakes Series Box SetFair Lakes Series Box Set by Kaylee Ryan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is a compilation of a series of books previously released by these two authors. Individually each book is fabulous, and a must read, but all together, it becomes something that you must immerse yourself into! An amazing series, all in one place!

It’s Not Over (book 1)
I’ve read (and adored!) books by both of these authors, so when I found out they had written a book together, I HAD to have it! There was absolutely no way I was gonna miss this one! Totally a stand alone, this book is all about what happens when HEA isn’t what you thought it would be. What happens when what you thought you wanted, isn’t what you want at all? And how to you get to where you really wanted to be all along?

Winnie and Harrison have just gotten divorced. The problem is, neither one of them are happy about it. Signing off on the end of their marriage seems to have made them realize what was missing, and what they really wanted in life. When the unexpected happens, they both see a possibility for a second chance, but can they make it work?

This story was absolutely amazing! I’ve already read it twice, and the second read was just as fabulous as the first! If you are a fan of either author, or both authors, or if you’ve never read anything by either of them before, GRAB THIS BOOK! It isn’t like anything else out there, and it is definitely worth your time! Winnie and Harrison will quickly become one of your favorite couples, I have no doubt!

Just Getting Started (book 2)
This books was so much fun! Full of twists and turns, I never knew what was coming next! Gabby and Chase were perfect for each other, even when they couldn’t see it themselves. And the surprises! I love when a book keeps me guessing, and this one definitely did that!

Gabby’s life is all topsy-turvy! She is getting ready to be homeless, and she can’t find a place that appeals to her (or is safe!) She gets an offer for a temporary refuge, but she just isn’t sure. Chase has the reputation of a ladies man, and she isn’t sure she will be able to resist temptation if she gets that close to him!

Chase isn’t who he portrays himself to be. He knows he want’s Gabby in his life, but isn’t sure how to show her he’s serious. And then, when he thinks things are moving in the right direction, the last thing he ever expected throws his life in a tail spin! He has to figure out how to adapt to the new developments, while still being true to himself and what he wants from life.

This story was absolutely amazing! Chase and Gabby are fun together, and I love the tension between them, right from the beginning. I love that they already know each other, and are friends. I enjoyed their verbal sparring, and the explosive heat between them! I love how Chase holds his true self back, showing it only to those he is closest to, and how Gabby responds to him! This is an absolute must read for anyone that loves these two authors!!!! It was the perfect follow up to It’s Not Over, and I’m really hoping they continue the series!

Can’t Fight It (book 3)
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!
