One of Nashville’s fastest rising stars, Kyle Keenan has it all—fame, fans, and a chance at fortune. But the dream he’s busted his tail for means nothing without the woman who holds his heart. With her sassy smile and pull-no-punches attitude, Abbey is his greatest love—and his greatest regret. When he’s confronted in a live TV interview about alleged involvement with a country music starlet, Kyle blurts out he’s already engaged…to Abbey.
Abbey Whittaker has come a long way from the starry-eyed six-year-old who made a marriage pact with her best friend. With a thriving business, a loving family, and a tight-knit group of friends, she’s put away childish things. She long ago banished Kyle from her life, so the last thing she expects is him walking through her door or the blistering kiss that follows.
Kyle is desperate to convince Abbey that a fake engagement is the best way to get the media off her back—and his. And it just might give him a chance to fix what he destroyed. Even as these two frenemies remember all the reasons they wanted to be lovers, another blast from Kyle’s past returns, threatening to expose the secret he’s spent his entire career hiding.
When truths come to light, will love conquer all or will Kyle lose everything?
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
Once upon a time, Kyle and Abbey were best friends from the time they were kids. That turned into something more as they grew up — but then he broke her heart, left her behind, and she has always been his biggest regret. Even as he climbed higher and higher up the charts as a country music superstar, Abbey was always the one who got away. After he’s put on the spot during a big interview and lies that he’s engaged to Abbey, Kyle heads back home for the first time in a decade to do some damage control. But will Abbey be able to forgive him for what happened in the past?
Kyle does his best to convince Abbey to really give him another shot as he helps her out at home with her ailing grandpa. There are some really sweet moments between Kyle and Granddaddy, and there is a nice use of Abbey and Kyle’s history in telling their story. But the headway Kyle makes with Abbey is put to the test when a secret from his past catches up with his present and threatens to destroy their future.
Our Kind of Love was an entertaining, captivating story. I liked the chemistry between Kyle and Abbey, and how deep their friendship runs. In addition to a charming story of forgiveness and second chances is the reality of how Alzheimer’s can affect a family, and I thought that Kait Nolan wrote both scenarios well.
Kait Nolan is a new-to-me author, so I wasn’t aware that this book is a spin-off of a previous series featuring some of the other characters in Kyle’s family. So there is a lot more to read about in this world! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
