Review by: Amy C
"I'm honored you're sharing this with me. Thank you." "That's where you're wrong. I'm the one who's honored to have you here in my arms like this." THIS IS SWEETNESS OVERLOAD! These two are so made for each other, yet neither one is sure, yet Kaylee writes them like they've know each other all their lives....uuggg. I love when authors know what they are doing with character yet write them discovering themselves like this isn't their first rodeo. This book had all the elements of southern charm and so much romance it was like sweet tea on a summer afternoon. Satisfying, delicious and completely body quenching.
Whitney needs to get away. Returning to the only family she has left, in small town America, is just what may set her right and get her back on track. She's got an amazing eye with a camera and lands up on the door step of Mills Photography. One shutter click away from McKinley Mills- Chamberlin is her brother, Aaron....who's as hot as hell and can fill out a pair of worn out jeans reeaaaalll well. With the down home pace set at slow speed, Whitney and Aaron start to see that sometimes slow and steady can win the race!
This book was a complete winner for me. I loved McKinley & Evan in Southern Pleasure and I was so happy to see Aaron get his own story here in Southern Desire. This book showcased Aaron Mills and his absolute devotion to friend and family. He keeps his heart closed off until he feels like his his missing other half. Watching him convince Whitney that she may be the one was swoony and just romantic as ever! I loved the flow and attention to detail this book had and couldn't put it down. Fantastic read and very well done.
