filled with any combination of her children’s friends, nieces, nephews and a
variety of pets.
It’s always hard to come into a series, especially one about a family, in the 5th book, but that’s exactly what I did with Kate. The synopsis sounding intriguing so I figured “why not”.
Kate Miller and her 6-year old son, Andy, moved to New Hope to start a new life. Kate gets pulled over by a hot cop and is not having her best morning. In fact, it was one of her worst. Luke DiMarco, said cop, finds Kate intriguing. Imagine his surprise when he runs into her at the bar she works at and he frequents with his many brothers.
Upon meeting Kate, Luke and his entire family welcome Kate with open arms. Kate is hesitant to get involved with anyone, after coming off a bad divorce. Luke doesn’t care. He knows he wants Kate and will literally stop at nothing until he can have her.
Luke was a fricking great character. I haven’t read a good alpha in a while, and boy was he an alpha. I loved how loyal he was to his family, and how quickly he accepted Kate’s son, Andy. Andy in turn instantly falls in love with Luke, and pushes his mom into pursuing a relationship with him.
Kate is a little harder to convince. As I said above, she’d had a rough go and wasn’t too trusting of men. Luke had to work really hard to break down her walls.
There were a lot of characters in this story, and having not read the first four books, I was at times confused, but that’s on me, not the author. I loved Luke’s family so much, and little Andy was just the sweetest.
My two criticisms would be that this book was really long; it could have been 75 pages shorter and still have been just as good. And while it did have an epilogue, it didn’t close out this story, but opened the door for the next, which drives me crazy. I will read the next one, though, for sure.
This was a good story about good people and I would recommend it.
