This blog is dedicated to romance novels of all kinds. It will review everything from Harlequin to erotic. Be sure to catch the dish on everything from sweet love inspiration stories to steamy hot sexy stories. No page will go unturned. No book is safe from review. It's all in fun and just my views, but I believe that it's good to know what you're getting into before you move from the cover of a book to the front page.

Romance Book Review: Katy Regnery's Kiss Me Kate
Author: Katy Regnery
Series Connection: The English Brothers, The Blueberry Lane Series
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Katharine Gilliam Regnery
I'm reading this series a bit out of order but after reading the first and 5th book I decided that Kate and Etienne's story looked interesting and decided to check it out.
A modern day Romeo and Juliet, at Kate 15 Kate and Etienne fell in love but then were torn apart. They don't see each other for 12 years each blaming the other for what tore them apart. Emotions flare while the couple flash back on what happened back then and try to work together today.
Now both older and lawyers in their separate family companies the two are forced to work together. The both have strong feelings for each other, but the past keeps getting in their way. Can they make their way back before the past drives them apart for ever.
Misunderstandings and old hurt feelings keep pushing these two strong-will characters apart. It was hard to really understand Etenne's personality and I wasn't sure if I really wanted to like him, or was sure that he was right for Kate and her quiet life.
I'm still making my way through the series, but have enjoyed the books I've read so far.
Kiss Me Kate is the sixth of six books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome English brothers (and one lovely cousin!) who are all on the look-out for love.
Kate English, cousin to the beguiling English Brothers, has relocated to Philadelphia and now works with her cousins at English & Company. The problem with moving to Philly? It was where Kate met her first love, Etienne Rousseau. Since the move, Kate can't seem shake the painful memories of a romance that broke her heart.
Etienne Rousseau, neighbor and arch-enemy of the English family, is recently single and has every intention of enjoying his newly-minted bachelor-status. That is...until his brother inks a deal with English & Company, forcing Etienne to work with his one-time lover, Kate English. Though he wants to hate the girl who once destroyed his life, he can't deny the fierce attraction or hide the deep tenderness he still feels for Kate.
With vibrant flashbacks of their passionate, teenage love affair making it impossible to ignore their unresolved history, Kate and Etienne will commit to unraveling the secrets of their heartbreaking past to make way for a breathtaking future.
