#BookBoyfriendChallenge Day 23: Southern

OK day 23 and it’s about southerns book boyfriends.

 

Heck! Do you recall all the settings of your love stories? I don’t. So I was really digging deep but suddenly … I saw the light! I had the perfect boyfriend. A real southern gentleman. Caring, protective, doing the right thing.

Cherry on top the story was fabulous AND from one of my favorite authors.

 

My Southern gentleman is none other than Kyland Barrett from Kyland by Mia Sheridan

 

 

Here is what I said about him with some of my favorite quotes:

 

Kyland was so many things: deeply lonely, kind, beautiful and always selfless. He did not think he was worth much and wanted Tenleigh to have so much more than he could give her. Tenleigh had to open his eyes and push him many times. He was so worthy and did not even know it.

” It’s okay to want something for yourself sometimes. It’s okay to want me.

”You make the darkness go away. You bring me some kind of peace. I don’t know what to do with it. “
“Take it Ky. You deserve some peace. Let me give it to you.”
“And what do I give to you , sweet Tenleigh?” He whispered sounding broken. “What can I possibly give to you?”
I thought about it for a second. “You help me believe”. “In what?”. “In goodness, in strength”.

 

What Kyland did was foolish but admirable. True to the Southern spirit!

 

If you want more, here is the synopsis:

Dirt poor. Hillbilly. Backwoods hick. Mountain folk.

Tenleigh Falyn struggles each day to survive in a small, poverty-stricken, coal mining town where she lives with her sister and mentally ill mother. Her dream of winning the college scholarship given to one student by the local coal company and escaping the harshness of her life, keeps her going.

Kyland Barrett lives in the hills, too, and has worked tirelessly—through near starvation, through deep loneliness, against all odds—to win the Tyton Coal Scholarship and leave the town that is full of so much pain.

They’re both determined not to form any attachments, but one moment changes everything. What happens when only one person gets to win? When only one person gets to leave? And what happens to the one left behind?

Kyland is a story of desperation and hope, loss and sacrifice, pain and forgiveness, but ultimately, a story of deep and unending love.
