In Acting Happy we meet Ty Bateman and Kenzie Stanton. On paper these two would never work, Ty's a huge movie star and Kenzie is a small town girl with a secret. So when the two of them meet, and the sparks fly, I knew I was going to be on one heck of a ride with these two.
Ty's sick and tired of the business, and excited for a few weeks of vacation in the mountains in Tennessee. When his best friends Reed, Bray, Connor, and Cole show up for their yearly vacation together, and they make a beer run, Ty's life is changed forever when he meets Kenzie.
Kenzie is back home, a place she thought she'd never be again, helping her parents run their store, and hoping against hope that her past doesn't come back to haunt her. The last thing she needs is the attraction she has to Ty or him pursuing her, but that doesn't stop it from happening.
Almost from the beginning of this book when we met Kenzie, we knew she was hiding something, but I didn't know the extent of it till Ty found out as well. I wasn't expecting everything she was hiding, so it was a shock to me as the reader as much as it was to Ty. My heart broke for her and it definitely helped explain why Kenzie acted the way she did. She's been through so much during her life already. The way Ty handled the news wasn't shocking to me, because by the time Kenzie opened up, we know how good of a guy Ty was and how he felt about her. Nothing she said could make him turn away, but what he did to help her, it made my heart so freaking happy, and I definitely fell in love with him right then and there!
Things are not easy for Ty and Kenzie throughout this entire story. What they feel for each other is solid, even if it takes a while for Kenzie to finally say it, and then there's dealing with her past, and Ty's fans. Every time I thought things were finally going to go in a good way for these two, something else comes up and I kept thinking "this will be the time that breaks them". My heart went out to both of these characters while reading this book. The things they have to deal with, and everything they go through, all while trying to make a new relationship work, is something that could break even the strongest of couples.
Acting Happy is a beautifully written love story that played out like a movie while I was reading it. I loved the cameo's we got of Reed and Lara and Kade from Chasing Happy. Seeing how they were doing was awesome, because I adored their story as well! Ty and Kenzie though? They definitely out rank Lara and Reed in my opinion. There is just something special about their story that made me fall in love with both of them so much!
The ending and the epilogue of this book was perfect, and I truly hope we get to see Connor, Cole, Bray, and maybe Julia's stories in the future as I believe each of them would make an amazing book! If you're looking for a sweet and sexy romance with tons of twists and turns, I highly recommend picking up a copy of Acting Happy by Rylie Roberts today!
We met the 5 best friends from West Texas in Book 1-Chasing Happy, Reed and Lara’s story. The 5 are spread across the world. Their jobs are- “Reed over there, he owns the world (CEO of a multi-faceted Company). Braden’s an attorney in Dallas. Connor’s military and Cole…He’s in the family business. They’re farmers. Like those massive sprawling farms…”
Ty Bateman, the movie star to end all move stars, and McKenzie Stanton, hospital social worker, are who’s story we now move on to in order to discover why they are “Acting Happy”.
Yes, they both have something to hide. Kenzie came home to the Smoky Mountains where she was raised to feel safe and Ty came to the place he had found to recharge and get back in touch with the real Him.
Ty is so struck by Kenzie the first time he sees her. But Reed points out to Ty, “She’s a beautiful, smart woman living alone with her parents in the mountains with a public servant degree that she’s not using. Something’s not right.”
Ty just wonders--“So because of his career, he couldn’t have a date or two with a normal, everyday kind of woman? He was stuck with women who were more ambitious than even he was when he first started in this business?”
Acting Happy shows us what Ty will do to keep Kenzie once He knows-- “He not only loved her, he instinctively knew she was his one and only. The one great love of his life. No one would ever fill this woman’s shoes. He could now begin his existence because he’d finally found her.”
Rylie Roberts’s book 2 in her Texas Desire series is great to read. I was looking forward to more stories from Rylie Roberts and was not disappointed by Acting Happy. I was given this book. I enjoyed this story more than Book 1. The twist, personal insecurities, and invasion of tabloid press in this story will keep you involved and turning page after page. I very much look forward to more stories from Rylie Roberts in this series.
Give Acting Happy a try; it will be well worth your time.
Thanks Rylie Roberts & Good Writing
"all air fist bump", "plumped", "wanna" (ok in certain instances, but not every character, all the time), "ghosting". Those are the main ones.
