Happy release day to Kate by Jennifer Hanks. I stumbled upon this author in a Facebook group and I’m very happy I did. Thanks to the author and Give Me Books Promotions, I received an ARC of Kate. Today I am here to tell you about this book and what I thought as well!

Disappointment.  Rejection.
that have been suffocating single mom Kate Miller for years. 
Moving to
New Hope to raise her six-year-old son is supposed to be a fresh start, a way
to put her past in the rearview mirror and focus on the road ahead. She isn’t
looking for friendship or a relationship, especially with one very sexy
detective who won’t stay out of her life or out of her mind.
No matter
how hard she pushes him away.
Dimarco is a man who’s faced his mortality.
After surviving a shooting, in which he was the target of revenge, he
understands life is fleeting.  When Kate
explodes into his world, showing him a glimpse of a future filled with all the
things he craves, he makes the decision to grab a hold and not let go.
Even if it
means sacrificing what he already has.
However, a
darkness still surrounds the small town of New Hope and they will learn the
only way to keep each other safe is to stand together.  Luke will need to show Kate that trust is not
just a word, but given to the right person, a promise.
But is it a
promise he can keep?


Kate was the first book I read by the author. I will be reading and reviewing the other soon, so keep an eye on the blog for those reviews!
Kate in a single mom trying to get her life together after a bad experience with her son’s father. Luke is detective and once he knows what he wants, he doesn’t take no for an answer! I liked him from the start. Luke tells Kate he wants her and that’s that. Kate is definitely more careful and hesitant. Andy is her everything and she thinks she’s too broken for a man.
I loved how this author wrote this book! It had me laughing, swooning and left me wanting more. Not only did we get the romance part, but there were some suspensful moments at well. The author gave us so much more than just a romance.
Luke and Kate slowly grow together. That is the best kind of romance in my opinion. I am a slowburn kind of girl, haha. It always makes it feel more realistic to me, especially considering Kate’s past. Kate really opened up in this book, slowly maybe, but she let herself love again and that’s not something to take for granted after being hurt the way she was!
On top of that, we get to read about an amazing family. The Dimarco family is definitely one you want to be a member of. They’re nuts and can be a bit rough around the edges, but they love each other, no questions asked. Welcoming Kate with open arms, wasn’t something they even thought of!
Even though all of these books are connected with the Dimarcos, you can read them seperately. The author definitely brings you up to speed on the other characters. I would definitely read them all though! But that’s just me :).
