Aryn Andrews is a single father doing the best he can under the circumstances.

3.5 stars

Aryn has been raising his daughter alone since his wife passed away tragically. All of his focus has been on being the best father he can be to Kayli and protecting her from anything and everything. In doing so he has lived a very quiet reserved life, he likes to have fun but he is rarely not with Ayli and he prefers it that way. There are not many people he trusts to take care of her and his sister is worried what he will do once Ayli is old enough not to need him.

Don't be scared to see this is third in a series, this is where I started. Let me premise that you can read this as a standalone; however, there are characters who are from the previous books (which I plan to go back and read).

I started this book on a Saturday afternoon, I finished it at 1:00 am on Sunday morning; that right there means:
2) I had to know what happens
3) I felt every emotion that Bethany and Aryn felt
4) The story was just beautifully written

Finished this beauty last night and omg when I first Stacey’s work I was blown away by left behind (if you haven’t read it stop right now and go read!) it was a beautiful story about loss and being able to find yourself after the pain settles. I wasn’t sure I could love a book anymore than that one but Plan B has seriously rocked my world!

Bethany is the light in a dark room! She is genuinely sweet to those around her, she hides a pain so deep not many will ever know because she is so good at ma

Aryn Andrews lost his wife during childbirth, so he's been a single father since day 1. He's vowed to be the father his daughter could be proud of, but that doesn't leave a whole lot of time to meet anyone. He's casually dated, however, none went far enough to meet his baby. Things take a sudden change when he moves, and comes face to face with a girl name Bethany. Bethany Michaelson believes that she's unlucky in life, and while she does her best to find the silver lining in things, she doesn't ...more

I don't think I realised before starting this book that this was the third in a series, which is completely my bad. However, I did feel as though as I was on the outskirts of the first part of this as events involving other characters from presumably the other books had an impact on the Aryn and Bethany. I felt that I was missing something significant even though these events only served to bring about further encounters. I don't like feeling I'm missing something so I will probably now go back ...more
Plan B is the third book in a series of standalones. It can be read as a standalone, although I did have a few moments of confusion towards the beginning, as I haven't yet read the prior books. It wasn't very distracting, and was easy to continue the story.

Bethany and Aryn have an interesting relationship. They have plenty of mutual friends, and Bethany is friends with Aryn's sister. The finally meet, and Bethany is forced to give up on some preconceived notions she has. With him being a widowe

C.L. Stacey has done it once again. Each book in the Lost & Found series is simply amazing and a joy to read, and this was does not disappoint. It continues the stories of all the important characters from the previous books such as Caleb, Ari, Jackson, Harper, Bree, and Lexi but focuses mainly on Aryn and Bethany. This story follows the journey and emotional path that Aryn and Bethany take to try and find what they have both been missing in their lives; a person to accept all of them without ch ...more

Aryn Andrews is a single dad who knows what loss and rock bottom feels like. He's learned to accept his loss and be the man and father his daughter deserves. Bethany Michaelson has suffered her own loss. She hides behind her pain by being selfless and generous to others. Their feelings for each other quickly grew, but we're met with resistance. Secrets and lies threatened to tear them apart, but one little girl bonded them more than they realized!

I finished this book just minutes ago, and I must say I am blown away by all the misunderstandings in this book. When you are told one thing and had it all wrong your entire life, that’s a lot to take on. After being in the mind or the characters, I am still in shock. This may take me a moment to gather my thoughts and think past the disbelief …

The prologue of this book automatically had me feeling for Aryn, the male protagonist. Then, to see w

Plan B by CL Stacey is the third book in the Lost & Found Series.
Plan B can be read as a standalone, but for better understanding I recommend to read the books in order. Book one, Left Behind and book two, Say Love.
Plan B is Ayren and Bethany´s book.
Ayren Andrews is a single dad, a widower who lost his wife during childbirth. His nearly 4 year old is a adorable little girl.
Bethany Michaelson is a victim of life, but she´s always positive and wants to change her fate and has to be brave. She´s be

This slow burn friends to lovers romance is simultaneously adorable and hot all at once. I had so much fun reading Bethany and Aryn's story! A widower and single father Aryn has just moved closer to his sister and best friend when he meets his best friend's assistant, Bethany. Right from the start these two start a friendship of hilarious banter that had me giggling nearly every time they had a conversation.

Aryn was such a sweetheart. Funny, smart, sexy, and a doting father he was the perfect p

This is the 3rd book in this awesome series, and is Aryn and Bethany’s story. Aryn lost his wife in childbirth, and for the last 4 years he has been a single father to his daughter. Bethany believes that she in unlucky in life, and does not let anybody get close to her. Aryn is determined to get through to Bethany and convince her that they are more to their relationship than the friend zone which she has placed them in. No spoilers; this is a must read, you will not be disappointed!

Wow what amazing story to the third book in this series. You will want to read the first two book to understand the story, but can be read as a stand-alone book. The amalove in this book is wonderful and very emotional, as you can feel the feelings that the writer has written very well. I was book first the start and the book is more then 5 Stars.

This was the first book that I have read by C.L. Stacey. I absolutely loved this book. It was well written from the beginning to the end. I absolutely loved Aryn Andrews. He is going through a lot in life raising a single daughter on her own. But that does not stop him from wanting to start over with someone who he believes is perfect for him. I absolutely love the relationship between Aryn and Beth. They have amazing character chemistry. This is just a great little love story about moving on af ...more

Full review here:

Plan B is a story about two people who’ve been through hell and back. Aryn and Bethany know what loss feels like. Aryn lost his beloved wife while she was giving birth to their baby daughter. Four years later, Aryn has learned to accept it. And even though it still hurts to not have her wife with him anymore, he’s decided to not let it hold him back from living his life to the fullest and finding love again. On the other hand, Bethany has

Bethany was stubborn, stick up her butt complicated. She was a hard egg to crack. She was rigid. She wanted to do her job and not be bothered with much outside of that. She had a system. I liked watching her transformation and she did slowly. CL took us through a process and I liked watching Bethany grow. She had a few demons that needed to come out and be worked through.

Aryn let a woman get the best of him and will be damned if it happens again. He has his little girl to focus on and life t

Plan B was my first book by C.L. Stacey. I was completely DRAWN to the cover and excited it had a single dad as the hero.

I felt like I was my feelings where ALL over the place while reading. I was HOOKED from the prologue to the prologue. Then it took me a few chapters to get into it. I think that wouldn't have been the case if I read the previous books in the series. Then I got into it again, then it lulled for me, and then I got into again before it ended.

I did like MOST of the characters. Me

I loved getting to know these two in this book. Both Bethany and Aryn’s stories are so endearing and I love how strong and passionate they both are. Their humor and playfulness with each other is so real that you can’t help but fall in love with them. By the end you are screaming and cheering for them. But I would have loved an Epilogue. There were too many questions left unanswered for me...what happened with Meghan? Do they reconcile? How does Bethany’s relationship with her mother evolve? Do ...more

I enjoyed this series and liked how it ended. I sort of had a love/hate relationship with this book. I was getting tired of the cat/mouse game with their affections towards one another. The characters would be hot one minute and then cold the next. All in all it was a good story.

I loved reading this book. Both Aryn Andrews and Bethany Michaelson get a second shot at love. It was great enjoying their journey and watching them both grow. The chemistry between the two was amazing. If you love hot single dads and upbeat independent woman you'll really enjoy this book! 5 stars

Plan B is a beautiful story about overcoming loss and redemption. It’s about two people learning how to love again, and oh is it beautiful.

Also, Ayli SLAYS. Love it, CL Stacey. GIVE ME MORE.

I enjoyed the book . I didn't connect with Aryn and Bethany as well as i hoped I would. Aryn seem to be trying to get over his deceased wife and Bethany had some big trust issues that she had to overcome . I was happy with how the series ended with all the characters.

Talk about being late to write a review! I am a huge fan of CL Stacey’s work, and this is by far my favorite of the entire series. I would like to say that although I HIGHLY recommend reading the series from start to finish they can all be read individually. I have been nothing but impressed with Stacey since I discovered her work in early 2017, I can honestly say that her writing gets better and better as I read more from here. I can not wait to see what she has in store for us in 2018.
