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!Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Acting Happy is the second book in the Texas Desires Series. It's also only the second book Rylie has written, and that surprises me. I can't wait for more! The first book follows Reed's story and now it's time for one of his best friends' Ty's. I love Reed but Ty is a total different type of man that I fell for instantly...
Ty Bateman is one of the biggest actors in the world. He has been working a crazy schedule over the last twelve years in the business. He wants to slow down, and the perfect start to his plan is the annual weekend trip with his four best friends. This year the destination is in the mountains. In the new home he bought to get away from the tabloids, work, and everything that comes along with it. He has four weeks to relax and figure out what he wants next. What he didn't expect on this trip was to find the woman that he would want to spend the rest of his life with...
After ten years of being away from home, Kenzie is back working for her parents at the only store in town. Since she left it seems she made one bad decision after another. She is suppose to be a social worker but now is a clerk. Instead of helping children she is stocking selves. Because of one extremely bad decision, she decided to swear off men. Forever. But that was before she saw him. She had no idea who he was except that he was sexy, charming, and was the new owner of a beautiful home in her mountain town. She was shocked to find out later that night that he was Ty Bateman. The Ty Bateman. And he wanted her. But why?
Ty has never been in a relationship. He never wanted someone to be his. His mother warned him that when he sees her, he will fall hard and fast. She was right. He never had to work so hard to get a date. But he knew she would be worth it.Read more ›
