Hey, Whiskey
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Check it Out: Goodreads

I’m over this year, and I’m over relationships. I’ve learned that the only person you can count on in life is yourself. Moving forward, I’m living for me. Working toward standing on my own two feet, that’s my goal. Funny how meeting him changed my path.

It’s been years since I’ve been back in this small town of West Virginia for more than a day or two. Spending time here brings back a lot of fond memories. When I stopped by an old friend’s bar, I was expecting to grab a drink and catch up. What I didn’t expect was her.

We share an undeniable attraction, but we continue to fight it.

Until one night in Vegas changes everything.

Original Review | December 2017 | Original Rating: 4 Stars
 
I loved this book so much! Everything about it. The characters, the story, just everything! This was my first Kaylee Ryan book but it will not be my last! I was sucked in from the very first chapter and blew through this book.
 
I adored Saylor. She was just a beautiful broken mess and I don’t mean it in a bad way. Everything she went through made her seem so much stronger once she picked herself and started to move on with her life.
 
Rhett was a just a sweetheart! I loved how he chases Saylor, no matter how much she put up her walls. He was funny, possessive, and just a joy to read in his POV.
 
Her and Rhett together made my heart swell! I couldn’t get enough of them together. Their relationship went from sparring every time they saw each other, to friends, and then together. Which was great to read about it, especially if you like a slow burn. It was also great because I felt like I was going through the motions with them and it just made it that much better!
 
The secondary characters were amazing and gave the book that extra push. Especially Grandpa Rhett!
 

Overall this was an easy five stars for me. 

Feelings Change

I loved this book so much back when I read it in 2017! While I did still like it, I didn’t love it the second time around. There were details about it that didn’t fit into what I like in my romances now. This was a slow burnish romance and I stay far away from those. Also, I didn’t start to like either character until about 35% of the book.

Once we got to a bit over the middle mark, I started to see why I would have rated it so high. Once Saylor and Rhett got over their jabs and finally started to admit to themselves that they liked the other, we got the romance I was looking for. I liked how Rhett chased Saylor, no matter how much she put up her walls.

However, the best character here was Molly. She was so caring and amazing for helping Saylor. She saw the good in her and helped in a way that most people wouldn’t for someone that they didn’t know.

All in all, five years later, I can’t say it’s one of my favorites anymore, but the romance still put a smile on my face.3 Star Rating

  1. At first I didn’t realize this was a re-read for you and thought I should read it if you’re giving it 5 stars. Then I saw the second review and now I don’t know if I should! I don’t think I’ve read this author before.
