Product Description

Product Description

Acting Happy, the much anticipated sequel to the #1 international bestselling novel, Chasing Happy, is now available.

Ty Bateman isn’t as bad as the tabloids say, but being virtually imprisoned behind the windowless walls of his home to avoid the clicking cameras of a life of extreme celebrity will turn anyone jaded and distrustful. Needing a break from his tainted reality, he decides his secluded mountain cabin is the perfect place for an extended vacation from the madness. Rejuvenating his soul and making decisions about his future are his top priorities until he spots a blonde beauty in short-shorts carrying groceries out of the only store in town.

Kenzie Stanton learned the hard way that rainbows and fairy tales don’t exist. She swears if she ever gets back on her feet, and out of the hot water her ex landed her in, she’ll embrace a new life that’s relationship-free. When a tall, handsome man with sexy eyes and a smoking-hot body shows up in her family’s store, she has no trouble ignoring him…until his kindness and genuine nature truly test her resolve.

Kenzie and Ty are both hiding out in the mountains…for very different reason. But reality will only wait so long before it knocks on their doors. Even if Ty can break through Kenzie’s barriers, he’s not entirely sure his hurt beauty can withstand the mental brutality of being in the celebrity spotlight. For these two damaged souls, does the possibility of failure weigh to heavily to seek more from life than acting happy?

Acting Happy gets 'ticks' in the 'good' column for all the elements needed for an engaging read.

The book had a different feel to Chasing Happy..and I'm glad it did, as I would hate to be reading the same story with different names in a different setting. While very seductive with a couple of unexpected bits, it seemed to have serious overtones, was issue focused and more realistically based than book 1 (which to me, was more like a fun, surprising, edgy, contemporary fairytale.)

Ty was unexpectedly vulnerable, deep and sincere. He was also, funny, loving, and very appealing. Ty was knocked out from the moment he layed eyes on the honest-hearted, beautiful, injured, smart and compassionate Kenzie. Agreeing initially to a fling, their relationship quickly proved to be so much more.Together these two lovers faced huge obstacles that each other's personalities, lives and backgrounds thrust upon them...anything worth having is worth fighting for.

I really liked this book and can recommend it to readers of good contemporary romance with some drama thrown in. I felt it didn't quite have that certain je ne sais quoi of book 1. Chasing Happy was special...Rylie really spoiled us with her debut book.

Acting Happy (& Chasing Happy) is why more readers should give new authors a try!

I loved Acting Happy & Rylie's writting style.

Ty is the mega tv/ movie star who is acting happy for the camera's & thinks he has his mates fooled.
Kenzie is a little bit broken due to events of her past. She is acting happy while taking refuge in her home town with her oarents. Thinking she is fooling them with her facade.

A chance encounter sets them on a course of self discovery. Their chemistry is electric & as they get to know each other they each become clearer about their own wants, needs & limits.

If you liked Chasing Happy, you'll love Ty & Kenzie's story. & the little insights into Lara & Reed's relationship.

Can't wait for more from this author

If you enjoyed Chasing Happy & want to catch up with Reed & Lara, you will enjoy Ty & Kenzies story. He's the hot movie star, she's the broken girl hiding from her past. This is good series can't wait to see who's next.
