Devin rescues Kylie from a pushy guy at a party, and thus, begins their epic friendship However, things might have turned out differently that night if Kylie hadn t friend zoned Devin so hard right out of the gate Enad with her the second he saw her, he was interested in much than just her friendship Rather than lose her, he chose to play any role she would give him in her life even if it tortured him every step of the way Fast forward several years into the future, and Devin is still taking what he can get from Kylie while keeping his true feelings hidden Kylie has feelings for him too, but she doesn t want to acknowledge them They both date other people until the day, one of them has enough Feelings are revealed, and both of their lives change forever Daisies and Devin by Kelsey Kingsley is a sweet best friends to lovers romance with one of the most devoted heroes I ve ever encountered If you know me well, you know sweet isn t usually my thing, but I enjoyed this story despite that Kelsey s writing is excellent as always, and I flew through the book in no time The connection and emotion between Devin and Kylie could be felt from chapter one, and I was rooting for them from that point on That s one thing you can always be sure of with this author strong emotional connection between the characters She excels at it, and it s one of the reasons I won t hesitate to one click any of her books Even if it s not something I would normally pick up, she makes me feel something, and isn t that what we all want from every book we read If you haven t read any of Kelsey s work up til this point, but you love sweet, emotional romances, I recommend this one to you If you have read her past work, then definitely pick this one up Patrick Kinney makes a guest appearance, and I loved it For anyone that doesn t know, One Night to Fall features his character, and it s one of the best novellas I ve ever read I highly recommend it In fact, if you re going to read this one, go grab that one, too You won t regret it flag 60 likesLike see review View all 15 comments Jul 26, 2018 Bianca BJs Book Blog rated it it was amazing review of another edition Shelves 4 9999999 stars,

s has always been to open a Caf with amazing drinks and poetry readings and singer songwriters serenading the guests But her dad is also her biggest problem He s a drug addict and he just can t stay clean Kylie and her mom have sent him to rehab so often but it never sticks and Kylie just can t deal with loving and hating him at the same time.Enter Devin.She meets him at a party a year before the book starts, but we go back and forth in time in the beginning of the story Devin is two years older than her and he never went to college He works for his dad s construction company He loves it Makes good money But he dreams of making a living with his music He s an amazing singer, guitar player and songwriter and Kylie loves it when he sings to her But Kylie also doesn t want any romantic relations at the moments she just can t deal with that on top of worrying about her dad.Devin tries to be patient Hoping for than being her best friend but if that s what he ll always be he ll take it He s been madly in love with her since he saw her at that party He just wants to be in her life.And in her life he ll be the years go by Things happen things that weren t planned life doesn t turn out the way Kylie and Devin have always thought it would but they adapt and change dreams and it could all still work out ok in the end but of course life is not yet done with them life is not yet ready to give them their Happily Ever After What will happen with Kylie Devin Will they find their Happily Ever After READ THE BOOK TO FIND OUT Kylie Devin.Oy.This was such a HUGE and HEAVY book.I adored it But it also kinda broke my heart Several times.It has this melancholy mood throughout but also this hopeful young adult mood at first We sooo hope that Kylie and Devin will survive everything life throws at them We need them to get that happy end.But of course it s a looooong way until we might see a happily ever after on the horizon If at all But we love every single page of that journey.Sweet, funny, heartbreaking With lots of music and feelings and poems and waiting and so much love.I just fell for those two immediately Even though I wanted to shake some sense into Kylie a few times To get out of that depression and fight for her guy And for Devin to fight harder Ugh This book is really hard on the reader s heart But it s so worth it I just wish they wouldn t have wasted all those years Just one tiny little conversation in the first year or in the second year and bam Happy End But nooooo we had to wait over a decade Ugh Really sad when you think about it But like always in such wasted time situations in books, it had to be that way for them to be ready for each other BUT still it was an amazing book and amazing love story.I had to put down my kindle a few times and go do other things I was just way too afraid of what might happen to those two along the way.The only things I didn t love other than the huge amount of wasted time I don t like cats and I m not a fan of tattoos especially on a girl sorry no offense to the author and other tatted girls, it s just my personal opinion I know I m weird But it didn t bother me much I still adored Kylie and Devin I grrrrrrr I just wanted them to fight harder for each other But I guess they were just too afraid to lose the other completely.I think they really needed all those years to grow up Some moments in that book I thought What How old are you 16 22 Guys You re in your thirties Jeez Ok, enough I LOVED the story and I need Netflix to come and make something out of this asap Another tiny little side note I loved that we meet Patrick Kinney from the Kinney Brothers Series DAISIES DEVIN was such a heartbreakingly beautiful emotional frustrating moving adorable love story full of love music Poe cats tattoos daisies hope dreams waiting ALL THE FEELS Run to your nearest to see if Kylie Devin will get that happily ever after but get your own sexy construction guy rock star this one is MINE flag 27

captured my heart and I knew this was not going to be an easy read Don t get me wrong it s not mind boggling or difficult to figure out what s happening I just knew this is going to pull at all my heartstrings I was right it did It dealt with some very real and current problems.Usually in a story the hero or heroine meets their soulmate and at least one of them immediately Did you ever start a book and know immediately you were going to love the story This book was that for me The prologue captured my heart and I knew this was not going to be an easy read Don t get me wrong it s not mind

the hero or heroine meets their soulmate and at least one of them immediately knows it In this case both parties have a case of maybe this is the person for me, but I don t want to mess this up, so we can spend our lives looking for someone to take your place, cause your friendship is worth everything to me Yup that s a long run on sentence but it relays so much Yes, there were times I wanted to swat them both upside their heads You know what though, this is how real life works We are afraid to rock the boat, afraid to step outside our comfort zones We decide what we think is the truth instead of actually communicating with the other person People become mind readers, or so they think Guess what Usually it s not what we think Of course this is what happened.Kylie, is such a tortured beautiful soul inside and out She has demons she lives with everyday With everything she has going on in her life she is still kind, loving, loves Edgar Allan Poe and is real and lives in fear of what could happen Devin is the boyfriend we all want He s a musician, romantic, poetic, soulful and loves John Mayer Every girl wants to make him theirs for ever and ever He s not into relationships Of course this sounds normal, except for Kylie, who he is desperate for but scared to rock the boat He would move heaven, earth and hell for her He d even give up on his dreams.If you ve ever heard the term, Can t see the forest for the trees , this is both of them They are blinded by their own insecurities and love.I don t want to give away any spoilers but the book gets intense Kylie has to worry about the cliches of rock and roll life, while Devin has to decide if she s pushing him and not being trusting enough I read this in one sitting cause I couldn t stop, even though I could ve used a breather I had to see what was going to happen It brought all the feels you could ask for, smiles, anger, angst, tears, laughter, romance, heat and even an education in poetry and beautiful memories of music and flowers.There s great secondary characters and we even get to meet up with familiar people we know from other stories I suggest you read this book and get the opportunity to fall in love with poetry, music, romance, pets and what the meaning is of true devotion and abiding love This is a story written from the heart and soul It played everyone of my heartstrings in all the right notes

of.It had a lot of my favorite things in it, to name some musician, a beautiful meaningful friendship, slow burn, all the angst and just two amazing main characters the side characters were pretty great too I believe there wasn t a thing in this book that I did not enjoy, not even on the times that it physically hurt to read It was truly a beautiful love story that truly depicted that sometimes it is all about the right timing These two were always there for each other even when it hurt to do so Devin, oh my goodness He was the best, always choosing what was best for Kylie even when it wasn t what was best for him nor what he wanted He was loyal to her to a fault, he did everything for her and it was both beautiful and sad It had been years of helping her go through life and making her dreams come true while his stood on the back burner But when his time finally came, she was there for him too even if that meant that in order to help him live his dream she couldn t be there at all.These two met one night in college and have been best friends ever since Kylie wasn t interested in a relationship at the time so Devin was put in the friend zone but he was willing to be her friend if he could get to know her better They just connected in every since and since that moment their friendship was the most special thing they had They were everything to each other Each other s solace, safe haven and whole heart But that last part was kept secret for their whole friendship and for half their lives, until one of them decided to finally go for it.Once they finally confessed their feeling for one another, it was like everything else that wasn t right fell into place Devin finally got a chance at his dream And the perfect little bubble they had been living in finally burst, a lot comes with living a life in the public eye and being a rock star and Devin got a bit lost in it all Their relationship was put through the test and Kylie was willing to let Devin go if that meant that he got a chance of really living his dream without her holding him back but is Devin really willing to give up the love of his life to live his dream Daisies Devin was truly a beautiful and real story about all the life struggles a person goes through friendships, relationships, dreams, losses, grief, loveThe writing was phenomenal and this story will be one that will stay with me for a while I just loved it so much It made me feel a lot and just made me think about my life and what comes next for me Anyway, it was an amazing read and you honestly need this book in your

angst, heart break and sadness but also shows a bond that is tied so tight it can never be broken They support each other through life s ups and downs in the way only best friends can, but there is always that underlying Could we be Should we be and you will find yourself wanting to scream with frustration, jump for joy and cry both happy and sad tears at the same time Get the junk food and

for her stories and characters is so apparent that you can t help but immerse yourself in their stories This book went even deeper though She created characters who were so raw and real that I had the biggest book hangover when I finished their story I just simply didn t want it to end.The Prologue sets the tone for Kylie s life experiences, and you know from the start that it s going to be an emotional ride Kylie has endured a tough life with her dad being an addict, yet she still holds onto her unconditional love for him She is so loyal and compassionate she s fierce and independent and she is beautiful When Devin first spots Kylie, he describes her as only a poet would he is completely enad by her, and of course her purple hair It is apparent that Devin is unique from other guys in the way he studies her from afar, swoops in to save her, and then proceeds to serenade her under the stars all while playing the cool, laid back guy who seems not to have a care in the world I fell for Devin Hard He is talented, passionate, devoted, hard working, and would do anything in his power for the girl he believes is his soulmate even if that means remaining best friends I wanted to scream at him many times but as their story unfolds, you realize that timing and basically just growing up can change everything in a relationship I stared at you for twenty minutes at that party, before I had no choice but to rescue you, he said so plainly From ten feet away, I thought you were the most beautiful thing I had ever seen And up close, I realized you weren t just beautiful Beautiful is only one word, and there are hundreds to describe you I should know I ve spent years stringing them all together SWOOOOOOON I high lighted so many quotes in this book because they are just beautiful, and touching, and meaningful Devin is so selfless that he literally brought me to tears at times His love for Kylie is endless, and of course poetic Kelsey s use of Edgar Allen Poe s poetry was brilliant and spot on I absolutely loved each and every quote and passage that was recited by both Devin Kylie, and before each Part in the book This book held so many things that to me make a perfect story music, poetry, deep friendship, and tragic family issues It will make you want to yell at the characters, cry with them, rush a concert stage to them, and run away with the hero

love, and then slowly weaves back into real relationship lane and leads you down a path of heartbreak and redemption Devin and Kylie were always friends From the moment they met, they just weren t ready But it doesn t mean that the next 15 years needed to be skipped over I loved getting to know all the details of their lives I loved getting to know these characters.When the day finally comes for Kylie and Devin to be together I could not have been happier Air high fives were given to myself because while I did enjoy reading from the beginning, I knew this was going to be the good stuff and it totally was The pre ending made me of course want to pull my heart out and scream But the ending brought my anger down enough to soothe me over until the final ending This book is the reason I read romance novels Was it long, yes Could there have been parts left out Maybe But I really feel like it would have taken away from the book This book was jam packed with music, with poetry, with art, with love You can tell this book was one of those books an author poured her soul into It did take me a few days to finish because of the length, but I really encourage you to get through it There were so many surprises, so many twists and turns that I literally was along for the ride and enjoying every minute of it I really do believe this is one of the best books I have read by Kelsey and you can really tell a maturity in her writing with this book I gladly give this book 5 stars because of how much I enjoyed it Do I think some will give up because it will be too long Sure But I really believe it will be their loss because just like any story, you have to get through it all to really appreciate it I recommend you picking this book up, get lost in this world and then you can

happily ever after Kylie deals with some hard things with her father and I can t imagine that was easy to write about.Even though they don t date, it s clear there are so many feelings there I think both of them are really just afraid to lose the other and end up with nothing This really frustrated me at times I just wanted to smack them and say to them they needed to admit how they feel Kylie loves Devin and the other way around They take care of each other and even get a cat.As a cat lover, I was so happy when they got the cat I also love the fact that Kylie loves books That makes my book loving heart very happy On top of all of that, I love the poems in this book and the song lyrics They add so much to the story I was so happy we got to see a character from one of her other books.I don t think any review can do this book justice It s just so beautifully written and I loved Kylie and Devin I mean, just the way Devin is describe will make most of us swoon, haha The only question

when a frat boy got too handsy in stepped our hero Devin to sweep Kylie outside where he proceeded to serenade her with his magical voice and guitar playing From then on a friendship was born and fast forward a couple of years we find out that the reason why Kylie is so obsessed with daisies is because her drug addicted father sent them to her on his good days, so no daisies meant that things weren t good on the home front Things with our two main characters were not all that great either because despite their obvious feelings for each other they continued to friend zone each other leaving me wanting to scold these two for just not giving in already When tragedy strikes double y for Kylie it is Devin who picks up the pieces and shows her just how above and beyond perfect he is, even moving in with her and adopting an adorable kitten But just when you think, okay, they ve finally admitted their feelings nothing else could go wrong.right Wrong Just when you think that the rollercoaster is over in comes another dip and you re left sobbing your eyes out wondering why is it that dreams coming true means that you have to give up so much in return Thankfully, after soooooo many tears, tissues and hair pulling our main characters do get a happy ending and you re left with a feeling that everything was as it should be That people who are dealt such harsh cards in life are able to pick themselves back up and punch life back in the face for trying to mess with them This book is in no way easy to read, in fact , I don t know how I got through it but let me just say that the
