As soon as I started to pick up the pieces of my life, a little boy with matching dimples and a familiar smirk showed up in my first grade class.
Which can only mean one thing.
Owen's back.
And he's determined to make me his.
But I'm done playing his game. Instead, I'm going to play my own.

It’s been a decade since the only man that Saylor has ever loved left her behind to pursue his dreams. The first surprise was finding out he returned but that is nothing compared to finding out his son is in her class, but she has her own surprise planned for him.

Owen had his reasons for the actions he took all those years ago and even though he hurt her it was with the best of intentions. He is determined to show Saylor that they have always belonged together and this is a battle he is determin

4.5 star Review Saylor (Signature Sweethearts #9) by Kelsie Rae
I found this book to be entertaining and I was invested from the first to the last chapter. I enjoyed Ms. Rae’s style of writing and found the characters easy to relate to and likeable. This is a second chance at love story that ticked the boxes for me.

This is Saylor and Owen’s second chance at love story and although there were some moments that brought tears to my eyes, throughout the read I couldn’t help but cheer for Saylor and

Ah! It's been a year since Skye, the last book in Kelsie Rae's Signature Sweethearts book came out, and I forgot all about Saylor and her ex-boyfriend, the hot former football player/single dad! There were bits and pieces of Saylor and Owen's history that we got in the Skye and Sway books (the other two sisters), and now we finally, finally get their story!

This is second-chance romance at its finest. It is angsty and sweet, swoony and romantic. Owen is going for the Hail Mary of reunions, and he

Kelsie brought her A game once again! I think Saylor was my favorite Swenson sisters and one of my favorites of the series. I have loved them all but something about Saylor and Owens’s story was just perfect! Saylor was the ninth book in Kelsie’s Signature Sweethearts series. It can be read as a stand alone but if you want sweet, feel good romances, you should read the entire series!

Saylor’s heart was broken years ago and it had never fully healed. When Owen came back to town with his son, woul

Owen destroyed Saylor’s heart beyond repair at 18. Went to college football, a prodigy of the game, great potential. College frat party + a drunk pregnancy made him clean up his act, but he was still heartbroken. His son healed part of his heart but he will have to work very heard to heal the other part. His injury and retirement and miserable job will take him back home but will he get the girl, heal his heart and have a HEA?

Saylor was a shell of a person for 9 years, she lost herself, her smil

The story is nothing new, but that could have been ok if the characters weren’t really bad, specially saylor. For a put together and intelligent 30 something, she have the emotional capability of a 16 years old. That made a really slow and quiet boring story

I love Beta reading for Kelsie ... She always packs the feels in every single page and this one was no different..... This book has been a long time coming and I was so excited to get it in my hands..... Saylor and Owen high-school sweethearts with their life all planned out. It didn't happen quiet like they wanted. Through years of missing THEIR PERSON, through life obstacles, through happy accidents, through missing out on so much. Owen finally comes back home and is determined to right all th ...more

Kelsie Rae is wrapping up her Signature Sweetheart Series with book nine - Saylor. I joined the series with Jude, book three, and fell in love with this cast of characters and the writing of Kelsie Rae. While each book is a standalone, you will want to start at book one, Liv, and read the entire series. Not only will you enjoy the progression of the plot, the friendships, and the connections between the books, you will observe Kelsie mature as an author. Grab your coffee and let’s chat about Say ...more

Saylor is book 9 in the Signature Sweethearts Series, this is Saylor and Owen’s second chance romance and their story is an entertaining, captivating read. Each book can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone although I’m sure once you pick one of these books up, you like me will want to play catch up with the rest of the series.

I feel like I have been waiting forever for Owen and Saylor’s story! I loved Skye and Liam’s story and really wanted more of them and what better then to read about Skye’s sister Saylor, and the high school sweetheart that broke her heart. This book gives you all the feels on every page. The chemistry is off the charts! I loved the way they reconnect, which I can’t give details on because I’d hate to spoil anything!

Saylor Swenson has a new student in her first grade class, and it’s her former boyfriend’s son. Grady Daniels is an adorable little boy, until he isn’t and gets in to a fight which forces a ‘reunion’ between Saylor and Owen Daniels that Saylor wasn’t ready to handle.

Owen and Saylor’s breakup wasn’t pretty and left Saylor broken and a shell of her former happy self. Saylor can’t help the anger and bitterness she directs at Owen once they meet again, but she also knows that’s not her true nature.

I loved Saylor and Owen's second chance story. This is a story of forgiveness and moving on from past hurt. Owen left Saylor before college and now almost 10 years later he is back in his home town with his small adorable son, Grady in tow and a lot of hurt to overcome. Their re-connection was heartwarming to watch while secretly cheering them on. The fact that Grady was adorable and acted as a buffer/matchmaker only endeared him more. This story has tear-jerking moments and moments of smiling a ...more

I love Saylor and am so happy to finally read her story. It’s one of pain, regret, forgiveness and healing.
The boy that broke Saylor’s heart and left a void in it so many years ago is back in town.
The buried feelings that Saylor has come rushing to the surface and the battle raging inside her is almost crippling. She still loves Owen but it’s so hard to let go of the pain.
Owen has one thing going for him though. He’s adorable little boy Grady.
Grady is super cute and just steals Say’s heart.

I got teary-eyed while I was reading through this book. I am still not disappointed by Kelsie's books so far and Saylor is well written that I can feel Saylor's pain. The book is emotional but also sweet with a little bit of flirty moments between Saylor and Owen... to tell you the truth, I want to read their love scenes behind closed door though and if I don't enjoy reading it so much, I would give it 4.5 stars because I want to read some steamy scenes. Lucky for the author because I enjoy read ...more

Saylor and Owen were headed for a happy life together. Until he broke her heart before leaving for college. He's back, and his son is in her kindergarten class. Kinda hard to ignore him now. I was vested in this book from the first page, with the story holding my interest until it ended. I was on edge, hoping for these two to finally decide to more forward, confessions, apologies and forgiveness notwithstanding. Their chemistry is off the charts, even as she tries to push him away.

Oh my goodness. This book is so great. It's a second chance romance.
Saylor and Owen were high school sweethearts until he broke her heart to go play college football. Saylor does her best to live her best life but her heart was broken by her one and only love.
Fast forward many years. Owen is back in town. His son is in Saylors class and they have no choice but to talk again.
What happens when they find they're both still so attracted to each other? Will they find their happily ever after again

Saylor is a sweet second chance romance that I absolutely adored because it tugged on my heart strings as I fell in love with a little boy named Grady and his sexy football dad. Saylor and Owen were soulmates until choices were made and regrets followed. You could tell they completed each other but insecurities and their own stubbornness got in the way. Saylor is beautiful and caring and I adore her nerdy side and her passion for life. Grady stole my heart and I would love to be his mom. He is s ...more

I loved reading Saylor by Kelsie Rae because it was such a heart swooning story about Saylor and Owen. They were high school sweethearts and Owen was going to college to play football. They had a horrible break up that devastated Saylor. Owen ruined her for every relationship. Then, he showed up out of the blue years later and with a son named Grady. I loved Owen's character. He was sweet and funny and he tried really hard to get back into Saylor's good graces. Grady was such a sweet kid and he ...more

Saylor is a perfect addition to the Sweethearts series and a wonderful second chance romance story. If you are familiar with the series, you already know who Saylor is and now we finally have her story and a chance to enjoy her journey to her happily ever after with Owen, her high school sweetheart. Their path was bumpy for sure and apologies needed to be made and forgiveness had to be given in order for them both to move on towards the future they were always destined for.

Ireceived this book at a time that I really needed a feel good story and this was it. From the beginning, Saylor Md Owens story sucked me in. A great mix of anger over lost love, romance and humor, I found it to be a quick read because I couldn't put it down!
Another plus, I love when a series like this gives small glimpses into past characters and where are they's always nice to get a glimpse of them after the happily ever after.

I absolutely loved Saylor and Owen’s second chance romance! It made me laugh and cry. Grady and Saylor were high school sweethearts. Grady left her when he went to college to play football so she would pursue her dreams instead of following him. Ten years later he’s back, but not alone. He has a son, Grady, who happens to be in Saylors first grade class.
Owen’s going to do his best to convince Saylor to give him another chance. Will he be able to prove how much he still loves her? This story was

This book is a part of a series, but can be read as a stand alone. Rating this a 4.5!

Saylor and Owen’s story pulls at my heartstrings. I felt like I was in their shoes at one time; praying they both get their happily ever after like I did. It’s story your best friend would tell you. It’s full of regret, strength, and second chances.

Owen comes back into Saylor’s life but it’s not just him this time around. He comes as a package deal with his son. You have to read this book to find out the story b

I must admit that this book did make me cry in parts. Such a good read and a perfect second chance story. Saylor was heartbroken when Owen left to follow a NFL career. He returns with his son and vows to get Saylor back. It was a very emlotional read and Grady played a lovely part. A really lovely read which I thoroughly enjoyed. Must read the others in this series about her sisters.

Saylor by Kelsie Rae  is a wonderfully written second chance  romance with high school sweethearts, a single dad, regret, hurt, comfort and forgiveness.  It had me feeling emotional and loving it.  These two characters really had me feeling the heartbreak of the past and hope for the future.  The story is sweet and had a few surprises.  Loved it!

Wow, what a book

I've read all the sweetheart books so I love following the story and getting to see how other characters from previous book are getting on.
I have loved them all.
I love the Sarcasm and Banter in this book. Grady makes me heart melt.
And I've just had to grab the tissues to read the final chapter

I'm a sucker for a cheesy romantic
