New York Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan brings you Every Sweet Regret, a sexy standalone romance about a single dad and the reformed party girl who’s loved him all her life.
For as long as I can remember, Kace Matthews has been my brother’s best friend and my not-so-secret crush. But I knew nothing would ever happen between us. The successful single dad doesn’t fall for the hot mess party girl. Kace + Stella exists in the doodles in my high school notebooks and in my dreams. Never in real life.
Until he finds me on a hookup app and starts flirting shamelessly.
It turns out high school Stella was not prepared for Kace Matthews. Adult Stella isn’t much better, but I manage to break down the walls to show Kace the real me—not just the life-of-the-party exterior, but the vulnerable pieces I hide from the world. Combine that with the combustible chemistry we have in real life, and I’m a goner.
Too bad it takes me so long to realize Kace doesn’t know I’m the girl he’s been falling for online. Telling him the truth now that he knows my secrets could mean losing everything, and that’s one regret that could break me.

  • So excited for the next installment in this new series!

    By Samantha B. Sokol
    So excited for the next installment in this new series! Stella has always had feelings for her brother’s best friend Kace, but with him being happily married she never acted on anything. Until things changed, and Kace ends up divorced. Giving a shot at dating apps, Stella has a horrible experience with a guy that knows about her past, and she almost gives up altogether until she gets a new match, who just so happens to be Kace. Kace’s ex-wife decides that he needs to get laid and downloads a dating app, and unbeknownst to him, he matches with Stella. As they get to know each other virtually, the chemistry and flirting between them hit an all-time high and they end up giving into their feelings in person as well. And because Kace has no idea that his virtual girl and Stella are one in the same, it makes for an interesting read! My heart really broke not only for Kace but for Stella as well, especially what she’s had to deal with in the past with relationships. I was so happy that we saw her finally take action against what happened to her, and that her friends supported her and stood by her through it. I also felt for Kace because of how his ex-wife acted, especially with the bombshell dropped about her towards the end. Per usual, another hit from Lexi and I can’t wait for Abbi’s book next! I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    Every Sweet Regret is Stella and Kace’s story. From the previous book we know he’s a recently divorced father still hung up on his ex. Stella is his best friends little sister who has had a crush on Kace for years. In this book Stella is trying to get her life together. She’s really not into partying anymore, but no one else has seemed to pick up on that fact. Kace is very attracted to Stella, but isn’t sure she’s his end game. I really enjoyed reading their story. My heart broke for Stella. She was a really sweet, thoughtful person in love with a man who didn’t take her seriously. Kace is so messed up by his marriage, he isn’t sure about starting anything serious with anyone. I really loved watching these two lean on each other and discover their real feelings. There was a little bit of suspense in the story too. Lies had been told and I (the reader) wasn’t sure what the truth was. I loved trying to figure it all out before the lies were exposed. Wonderfully written friends to lovers/brothers best friend story. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
  • Great addition to this series!

  • Emotionl and touching story

    By Virna Thompson
    Every Sweet Regret by Lexi Ryan is the second book in her Orchid Valley series. It was an emotional and touching story about second chances, letting go and taking risks. Stella has crushed on her brother’s best friend, Kace, since high school. She was always the girl ready to party and have fun. And yes, that led to some questionable choices, but she is determined to finally move forward. Kace is a single father trying to settle into his new normal. Full of angst, their journey was not easy. She was always forbidden to him and all she ever wanted was him. When they find themselves flirting, teasing and connecting online, will that finally bring them together or push them further apart? Definitely worth the read and excited to see what comes next in the series. Happy reading!
