Series: Fair Lakes #3
Authors: Kaylee Ryan & Lacey Black
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 30, 2020


From the moment she showed up on my doorstep, I knew our lives would never be the same.
I felt it deep in my soul that she was going to change us forever. I didn’t
know how, but I knew she was important. I tried to maintain the distance
between us, but it was too strong to fight.
With each passing day, I saw a future I never planned flash before my eyes—one with a fairytale
ending. The only problem is that someone wanted to take that away from me, away
from us. I just found her, and no way am I letting her go that easily.  Hollis is family, my family, and I’ll do
whatever it takes to protect her.
Colton Callahan wasn’t what I expected. I was in desperate need of a fresh start,
ready for something new, but all it took was one look at those intoxicating
blue eyes for me to reevaluate everything. I tried to stay detached, but
something about him just called to me.
It took no time at all for me to fall. Not only for the man I share a living space with,
but also his son, Milo. The problem is my past is not too far behind, trailing
behind me and slowly catching up. When it finally does, I have a choice to
make—run away, leaving them behind, or stay and fight, potentially putting them
in danger. Either way, I could lose it all.

Can’t Fight It is the third book in the Fair Lakes series by Lacey Black and Kaylee Ryan. I am loving this series and it’s characters. You can read each as standalone but I recommend reading the series since they are amazing! If you read Just Getting Started then you know the beginning of Colt’s story. The newly titled single dad…

Colton knew it was time to take his honorable discharge for the Army after twelve years when he found out his was a father. His son only a month old. And now a few months later, they were making home in a new house and a civilian job at All Fit as a trainer and class instructor. He was making moves to secure a good life for his son, Milo. And with that he decided to rent out his in-law apartment. He was expecting a man named Hollis. Who showed up was a woman named Hollis and he knew from the moment he saw her he was a fucked. She was beautiful, sweet, and would change everything.

Hollis needed a fresh start so went to her Grandma’s hometown of Fair Lakes. It wasn’t California and she loved the small-town. It was the perfect place to start over. What she didn’t expect was him. Her hot AF landlord and cute as a button son. She needed to stay on her side of the wall and work. She was a web designer so she can work from anywhere and hearing Colton talk and sing to Milo made it hard to stay away. It was a fight for sure. Especially after taking him up on his offer of taking his self-defense class at the gym.

Colton and Hollis’s relationship is beautiful, sweet, sexy, and so much fun. It just seemed so easy from the beginning but Hollis was holding back. There was a reason why she wanted to start over. What will happen when Colton finds out that reason?

I loved it!! Lacey and Kaylee is amazing with babies and kids. Seriously. They are not just in the background. They are right there with the main characters. A man holding and taking care of a baby? Swoon!! Really though, the story is full of suspense, love, family, friendships, and laughter. I gave me all the feels!!


“Milo wants you to come.” I’m aware of how desperate I sound right now. She smiles, and it sets my world on fire.

“Oh, Milo wants me to come?” She crosses her arms over her chest and leans against the doorframe.

“That’s what he said. Told me not to come back to the living room unless you had agreed to go.”

I have so many ways to keep her hot and bothered. She isn’t aware that she’s just given me permission to unleash the beast.

“Of course it was about a girl!” Chase hollers. “He knew she liked me!”

“She thought you were cute, like a puppy. Ellie Jacobs was interested in a man, not a boy,” Colton boasts proudly, rubbing his chest.

“Man? You were sixteen. The other one hadn’t even dropped yet,” Chase argues, making everyone laugh.

5 out of 5 stars

Can’t Fight It is the third book in the Fair Lakes series by the talented duo of Lacey Black and Kaylee Ryan. This series is so much fun! This is Colton, Chase’s brothers story. He’s home from the Army and now has a baby to take care of. He’s trying to do the best he can, a job, a house and now he just needs a roommate. As soon as he sees Hollis, he wants her. And that’s a very bad thing. Right? He can’t get involved with his roommate, that will end badly. But Hollis quickly becomes more than just a roommate. His son, Milo, loves her. His family and friends too. After one taste of her, he can’t stay no anymore. Can they make it work? Will Hollis want to be part of his family? I have a soft spot for a single dad romance and I loved this one! Milo brought them together and he was such a big part of the story. Colton and Hollis’s story was fun, sexy, with a little suspense. Overall, I laughed, got hot and bothered and really enjoyed it!
