REVIEW ➞ Beat by Beat by Kaylee Ryan



Being a single mom is not how I envisioned life would turn out. But after my happily ever after ended way too soon, I’m doing my best and taking each day as it comes. Life is full of surprises, though, both good and bad… like Marshall Riggins coming to my rescue in the pharmacy line.

The gorgeous Riggins brother has a heart of gold and looks mighty fine as a knight in shining armor, but I don’t need a handout nor the distraction. Too bad my heart doesn’t get the memo.

Suddenly he’s everywhere I am. With his stubborn smile and dark blue eyes, he sees way more than I wish he would. He looks beyond the broken fragments of my being and still wants me. I can’t help but think maybe he’s my second chance at a happy ending.


After watching my brothers find their magic and settling down, it’s time to admit I want what they have. It’s not just about the passion but the soul connection. The beautiful brunette fumbling through her purse in front of me in line doesn’t just catch my attention. She steals my heart.

Wren Wheeler is as stubborn as the day is long. The gorgeous single mom doesn’t want to accept my help… or my friendship. But her adorable baby girl doesn’t agree. In fact, she loves me. And the longer I spend with both of them, I know walking away isn’t an option.

She’s afraid of having her heart broken again, but I’m not going anywhere. I’ve slowly fallen for Wren. And beat by beat, I think she’s falling too.

“You’re an enigma, Marshall Riggins.”


I absolutely love the Riggins brothers and Marshall and no different. He is the youngest of the bunch, so naturally the last one to find his magic. His heart was captured by not just one woman, but also her adorable baby girl.

Marshall is smart, hardworking, caring, protective and will make you swoon. Seriously, the man is to good to be true at times.  Wren is a single mother, she is hard working and doing everything she can to make sure her baby girl has everything in life and knows that she is loved.

From the moment Marshall meets Wren there is just something about her that draws him in. Neither of them expect to see each other again, yet they keep running into each other. They spend more time together and slowly their feelings start to come to the surface.

I adored this story from start to finish. I completely fell in love with Wren, Marshall and Maddie. It was bittersweet to see this series come to an end but I loved getting more of this entire family.
