To Katie With Love
by Erica Lucke Dean
Rating 5/5 Stars
Banker Katie James has a serious thing for romance novels. She’d almost rather settle for a fictional boyfriend than risk her heart on a flesh-and-blood man. Besides, the only real guy she’s remotely interested in is her rich, unattainable client, the mysterious Cooper Maxwell.
Looking less like the ultra-conservative man she knows and more like a drop-dead sexy character from one of her books, Cooper crashes Katie’s 29th birthday party. But one too many drinks lands Katie in uncharted territory… Cooper’s bedroom!
Drunk on love, Katie dives headfirst into the relationship only to discover that Cooper is keeping secrets… dangerous ones. As if things couldn’t get worse, her meddling mother makes a surprise visit, digging up a whole new set of problems.
Who would have guessed having an assassin for a boyfriend would be the least of her worries?
To Katie With Love is a great romantic comedy full of random hilarity and mystery. Katie is such a fun character that I had no problems relating to. I couldn’t help but feel like I was right along with her letting my mind work into overdrive creating zany problems for myself. The characters were so lively and fun. Katie and Silvia were cracking me up, although I did want to slap Vicky around. Overall her friends were great and quirky, and I couldn’t help but chuckle at their crazy antics.
I loved the fact that Cooper and Katie had a history together prior to their romance. A history that seemed to get Katie in more trouble since she had access to his bank records as his banker. The only downside to their relationship is that Cooper is secretive about his job, which causes all the insanity to ensue!
This book made me laugh out loud on several occurrences, earning me weird looks from my family. Katie’s growth as she gains more confidence in herself is hidden in the midst of her Nancy Drew behavior, but it’s still there. By the time the book ends, she’s a strong woman that has no problems standing up for herself. This was such a change from the meek, romance reader that we’re introduced to.
Overall, this book is a great way to spend a summer day! This cast of loveable characters will keep you occupied long after the sun goes down! Read it!
