A chance encounter. An undeniable connection. An unimaginable twist of fate.
Kailey’s life is crumbling. Her best friend and sister, Jen, is dying, leaving her young family devastated. With little hope of saving her, Kailey is forced to face a reality she never expected.
Trey’s life is fun and carefree. He loves the girls, his drums, and his friends. That’s not to say he isn’t continuously plagued by a difficult decision made years ago—one that changed the course of his life.
Despite the connection they make when their paths unexpectedly cross, Kailey knows her life has no room for anyone else right now. But regardless of how many times she pushes him away, Trey only fights harder to make a place for him in her life and in her heart.
Trey thought he knew heartbreak, but he had no idea until life gave him a second chance, only to snatch it away just as fast. This time he’s determined to keep his place in the life of the ones he loves.
Is there such a thing as fate? If so, can Kailey and Trey hold on to one another long enough to discover there’s no such thing as a chance encounter?
This was such an emotional book for me to read. I spent a good part of this book in tears. But every last tear was so completely worth it. Michelle Lynn did such a phenomenal job with Trey and Kailey’s story. There was so much to this book and I am afraid my review is just not going to do it justice. It was by far my favorite book in the series and both Don’t Let Go and Let Me In were amazing in themselves. And who knew that I could end up thinking that Trey is my favorite guy?
Trey likes women, well, he likes women as long as there is no need for a relationship or an attachment of any sort. But when he meets Kailey, all bets are off. Their connection seems immediate. But the more Trey falls for Kailey, the more she pushes him away. She only wanted the one night that Trey is so known for but there is something so undeniable between these two and Trey is not giving up that easily.
Kailey just had my heart broken. Her sister and best friend is dying and Kailey is taking on so much for someone her age and it is just heartbreaking. I know it is so much more than I would have been able to handle at her age, but she is dealing with it all.
It was just hard watching Kailey push away from Trey. But really, he is not known for relationships. She didn’t want anything more. But as it turns out Kailey has done something to Trey. He is determined to get the girl. He wants to be there for her when she goes through this difficult time in her own life.
When these two are together, you just know. But the more Kailey pushes him to live his life and go on without her, the more he pushes back. And just when you know that this book is going down one path, it shifts and changes directions. This one is just not one I saw coming.
Michelle Lynn’s writing style is addictive. She takes amazing characters and makes them family. She takes emotions and moves them to an entirely different level. The writing in this book is gripping, moving and unrelenting, but absolutely fabulous. Now before you think this is just one big emotionally broken book, I have to tell you, I spent quite a bit of time laughing too. So yes, it was emotional and I cried like a baby, but it was full of humor as well. This book just encompassed so much and I know that I cannot do it justice in a few paragraphs, so take my word when I say, you have to read this one. It is fabulous!
This book can be read as a standalone, but this series is just too good to miss. Michelle Lynn does something amazing in her writing and it just pulls and twists and unrelenting you just don’t want to put the book down. And you are right, I didn’t put it down. It was emotional, humorous and full of angsty love. I adored this book so much and I can’t imagine giving it any less stars than five. It is AMAZING!
I curl my knees up to my chest, shivering, my face glued to the couch. I peel my mouth away from the leather, wiping the drool as I sit up. Shit, it’s cold in this state. Staring at the practically empty bottle of Jack sitting on the coffee table, regret hits me. I’ll be useless for the rest of today. That is, until I can drown myself into another bottle tonight.
After I stand up, I attempt to steady myself by holding my arms out, like a toddler on a balance beam, willing the room stop swirling. “He’s down here,” Dex screams up the stairs.
“Shit, quiet the fuck down,” I tell him, and he laughs boisterously. Jackass!
“What the hell, man? We’ve been searching all over for you,” he says, plopping himself on the couch.
“Well, you found me,” I say, sitting back down, grateful for the excuse not to move for the time being.
“You got to get it together. We’re going to that party at Sam’s tonight. Screw Kailey, there’ll be plenty of girls begging to have your dick tonight.” Dex’s attempt to pull me from this funk, only reminds me of who Kailey thinks I am.
“Shut the hell up, Hulk.” Brady smacks Dex across the back of his head. He tosses me a bottle of water and sits on the other side of me.
“Just because you and Grant have gone all in, doesn’t mean the rest of us want one pussy for the rest of our lives,” Dex adds with humor in his voice.
“Grow up,” Brady says and picks up the nearly empty bottle in front of him. “If this,” he waves it in the air, “and fucking a different pussy every chance you get is being single, then I’m more than happy where my dick lands every night,” he finishes, setting the bottle back down.
“Save us the whole commitment is the best speech,” Dex banters back.
Brady stares Dex down in annoyance while all the back and forth makes my headache a little more intense.
“If she has you doing this, she must be worth it.” Brady cocks an eyebrow at me, and I stare back at him, already recognizing he’s right, but no way in hell am I going to admit it to him.
“Shit,” I mumble, and Brady drones his fatherly know it all ‘uh huh’ under his breath. Cocky bastard. Standing up, I take the steps two at a time. Right before I reach the top, I hear Brady and Dex talking.
“You give shitty advice,” Brady tells Dex.
“Fuck off, Mrs. Sadie Miller,” Dex says in return. “He’s gonna become pussy whipped, just like your ass.”
“And believe me, he’ll be happier,” Brady adds. As I reach the main floor, I pray Brady’s right.
