                This Chronic’s Review       

I was given the ARC for my honest opinion and all I can say is, "Wow!" This debut novel has everything a lover of contemporary romance can want. Breaking Kate is the story of a group of friends, their inter-relationships, and the love they share. Now, I know that sounds more like a "fetish" set up, but nothing could be further from the truth. Two girls and one boy grew up together. One pairs off with the boy, but all remain the best of friends; until one fateful night changes all of their lives forever. As they mature, the girls soldier on, but the now young man's life spirals out of control. While in college, the girls find a solid, handsome-as-sin, friend who has three best friends of his own, and then the REAL story begins.

Breaking Kate is heartwarming and heartbreaking. It is well written, with realistic characters whom I can envision meeting on any college campus. The sensuous, steamy, sex will have readers hearts beating faster! This is the first book in the series and I am very much looking forward to continuing the journey with Ms. Kelly's characters.

Four and 1/2 stars for Breaking Kate! Congratulations - you've written a book I'll read again and again!


lips are almost brushing against mine, so close I can feel his breath
caress my lips… it’s intoxicating. Daniel places one hand on the
back of my head, pulling me forward to close the small gap between us
as his perfect lips meet mine for a gentle, yet utterly
heart-stopping kiss. This is the first kiss fairytales are spun from.
My heartbeat is still rapid, my pulse is still racing, and I can’t
for the life of me figure out why I have waited so long to find him.
This man was obviously made just for me. Daniel stops kissing me,
resting his forehead against mine.
reach up and run my fingers through his hair, and I feel him suck in
his breath as he slowly he moves his lips to mine. Gently kissing me,
he parts my lips with his tongue, making his way into my mouth. When
his tongue caresses mine I feel butterflies in my stomach.
the hell?
feeling is exceptional; it’s unlike anything I’ve ever felt
before. I’m lost in it and to it.

I'm a wife, a mom and a dog lover. I'm also a taxi, problem fixer, extreme multi-tasker and my kids biggest fan in anything that they do. I love to write, so when my career suddenly turned into a job that I hated I turned back to my love of writing. I married my high school sweetheart... how cool is that? Margaritas and sarcasm make me happy. Chocolate makes that happiness grow exponentially. People who make me laugh are my favorite kind of people. I believe Karma is a bitch who slaps back hard and that mean people suck. I'm California born and raised, I love the beach but hate the sand. Breaking Kate is my first novel and is part of The Acceptance Series.
