Review: Remedy by Kaylee Ryan

Kaylee Ryan gives readers a love story combining two of the most popular tropes around: falling for your best friend's sibling and second chances. Remedy is a brand-new standalone with a fair amount of angst (yay!) tempered by some lighthearted moments (yay!). This romance is all about Grady Carmichael, a medical student about to start his residency and decides to return to his hometown to do it. His reason has little do with wanting to be living closer to his parents or his best friend and nearly everything to do with being back in the same town as the girl who changed the way he saw his future and, more importantly, his heart three years ago. But Collins Ward has changed in the years since that one and only night they shared together. The hurt and anger remain. After all, Collins had given him something she would never give any other man, and his absence the following morning and lack of communication on his end for days and weeks afterwards are forever etched in her memory. What Grady needs her to realize, though, is that while he may have run away before, he intends to stay for the long run for her.

There was a lot about this book that I enjoyed. From the cast of characters to the connection between Grady and Collins, this turned out to be a love story that had heart to it. There's no one here that I didn't like and I did believe that Grady and Collins had genuine feelings for one another once they had gotten over all those humps and hurdles along the way to their happily-ever-after. I admit, though, that I have to suspend my own disbelief when it came to Grady saying that his one night with Collins had made him so devoted to his feelings for her that three years of no contact whatsoever has led him to returning to their hometown and wanting to share a life with her. I get having the feelings, but for Collins to be the reason that he wanted to focus all his attention on his studies and then go on to apply for residency in a hospital in their hometown. Maybe I'm just cynical, but the whole non-communication thing and making such life-changing decisions three years later had me raising an eyebrow or two. Still, I did love the story once they gave their relationship a chance, so Remedy receives four stars out of five stars. ♥
