Book Description

She believes that love can never last, promises are usually broken, and true happiness is extremely elusive in the long run.

He believes most risks are worth taking, the promises he makes can be kept, and love doesn't factor in his relationships any longer.

They're both wrong.

Praise for When I See You
"...this book is not a fast pace 'on the edge of your seat' mystery, not an erotica, no vampires or make believe animals this book. its simply an emotional roller coaster that i highly recommend to everyone." jerseygirl - Goodreads

"...The story is magically woven with and drew me in from the start. This isn't a fluffy romance. This isn't the book that makes your panties bunch and the steam factor is off the scale. This is a realistic love story, one that doesn't necessarily paint the characters as fabricated. I am surprised that this story hasn't received more praise and has not left a dent in the world." Krista - Goodreads

Excerpt from Chapter Two of When I See You

"Can I ask you something?" Brock asks.

"Uh-huh."

I bite my lower lip, feigning concentration on
finishing the frosting masterpiece in front of me, although I'm actually
holding my breath in anticipation of his question. A part of me already knows
that it will be too intimate or too personal to actually answer.

"Are you happy?"

I look up at him. He looks genuinely concerned.
I blush, recalling my deepest thoughts and revelations about marriage to him.

"Of course," I say quickly.

"Really happy. It's hard to have this
life with Ethan when he's gone so much of the time."

It's not a question. It's a statement. A salvo.
Is he testing me? Or, taunting me?

"It's hard," I say slowly. "You've been in
love, right? The fiancée?"

"Yes. It was a long time ago."

Devastation crosses his features, and then, he
shrugs and slowly smiles. "I don't talk about her. Ever." He gives me this
challenging look.

I nod slowly in acknowledgement and smile back.

"A long time ago still counts," I say. "Ethan's
always here, inside of me."

I point to my heart; then blush again. I'm
wearing Ethan's 'Sea, Air, and Land' SEAL t-shirt, but suddenly feel
embarrassed at this man's close scrutiny of it.

"But does he really see you?"

His question catches me off guard. The disquiet
in his voice reaches for me, stirring up all these insecurities about Ethan I
harbor. How does Brock know that I wonder? How does he
know that I don't believe in fairy tales or happily-ever-afters anymore? Does
he see my pain? Does he feel it? And, if he does, how come Ethan doesn't?

From the Author


One husband, one boy, one girl, two cats, and the ashes of one golden retriever who was loved well. Friends and family that are a bit on the dysfunctional side tends to lend to my active imagination quite nicely, providing me with concrete examples for my fiction. I spent a long while in high tech sales and spent money like Evian water and racked up useless stock options. In pursuit of a long-held dream, I gave up the high tech corporate life and now devote myself to writing fiction full-time. I write love stories that tend to be edgy and dark and #Iwillmakeyoucry. If you're not offended by the gentle sprinkling of swear words at what are 'necessary junctures', we're bound to be best friends. This way to my world: katherineowen(dot)net. xoxo KO 

Shorter version: 
Novelist ♥ #Clooney #Cavill #coffee #vodka. The glass is half-empty #contingencyplansinplay. My #novels=$ of latte ♥ edgy, angsty #reads? This way: katherineowen(dot)net. xoxo KO

3.0 out of 5 stars Captivating read, lots of drama...maybe too much. April 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read all of Ms. Owen's books and enjoy the drama. Sometimes I think she gets a little too carried away with the trauma that occurs to her characters. I did enjoy this book alot. There is one particular trauma that I thought took it too far. The book could have done without. I will say the stories draw me in and its hard to put the book down. But sometimes I think the author is so excited to get to the next part in the story that she rushes the current plot. The end of the book is somewhat abrupt. The characters are loveable and sexy and the steamy scenes are intense and fun to read. As a military wife, the lack of research on military life and protocol was frustrating. The ranks were confused. US Navy does not have Colonels or Sgt or Majors. And and enlisted person is not the same as an officer. Not a deal breaker by any means, but exasperating that it was very off base in the military details. Needed more research.

4.0 out of 5 stars I could read this book twice April 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
`When I See You' was an immensely powerful story and very emotionally driven. Truly moving. The protagonists were well developed and greatly believable in their thoughts, actions, character flaws and virtues. I was utterly immersed and completely engaged from start to finish.

As the author asked for feedback (Book Club Discussion section of ebook) I'd very much like to give my two cents worth in the hope that it may possibly aid her in becoming an even more remarkable storyteller. I only do this when I think it might be of some benefit to either the reader or writer. I don't do it to grind axes or vent.

I don't want to spoil the plot here; as a result, I won't go into much detail. That said I believe Ms. Owen will know what I refer to. Here goes:

I felt that what happed to `Max' at the lake was overkill (pardon the pun). It cast way too great a pall on an already gut wrenching story. In my opinion it was unnecessary and very nearly destroyed an otherwise first-rate work of literary art.

I believe the ending was too abrupt. Don't get me wrong, I did love it but I felt there needed to be more of a resolution. After all Brock and Jordan had been though I for one would have liked to get a glimpse onto the future. Personally I reckon that an epilogue told from the viewpoint of one the lesser characters (Possibly Ashleigh, Janie, or even Tad) could have made for a powerful and satisfying finish.

One thing I absolutely cannot flaw is the attention to emotional detail and character development. It was so believable to me.

Another thing I must praise, Ms. Owen's eloquence. This writer succeeds in being breathtakingly expressive without being tediously verbose.

All in all, I think the reader will thoroughly enjoy this book

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good book! January 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I just finished this book last night after starting it in the morning! I would give it 4 1/2 stars-loved the story and it was so full of angst. I do love a good book with angst! The reason I didn't give it 5 is because I just couldn't take all that the h had to go through. One thing especially blind sighted me, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone. It was just a little to painful to take! I have read the other two books by this author and have really enjoyed them both! Will most definitely read other books by this author.

2.0 out of 5 stars Completely Unbelievable January 28, 2013
By Joanne
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book lost me more and more as it went on. I couldn't believe how many tragedies happened to the two main characters, and the last couple of chapters were just the final straw. It made it impossible to find any redeeming quality to the book and care whether they got a happy ending, because I was in shock that yet one more thing had happened. The only reason I give it even two stars is because the writing is decent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing !!!! March 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is my first book from Katherine Owens but it will not be my last. What an amazing story. The characters came to life from the very first page. You will find yourself caught up in this story. So much so you will not want to put it down. Not even to sleep. I would give this more stars if I could but five is as high as it goes.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN!! May 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
"When I See You" is yet another brilliant romance in which Katherine Owen proves that, not only can she create excellent characters, but she can put them through the wringer and make them come out on the other side as even better characters. Jordan Holloway has everything; a good husband, a sweet little son, a promising career and a Malibu beach house. Lieutenant Brock Wainwright is Ethan Holloway's sniper partner in the army. Brock promises to keep Ethan safe for Jordan, but can such a promise be kept?

During the year covered by this book, Jordan learns that promises are lightly made but not often kept and Brock finds out that trust, once lost, must be earned before it can be given again. While she is still mourning the violent and tragic deaths of her parents, Jordan is flung into a world of unbelievable heartbreak as she loses more loved ones, her trust in Brock Wainwright and almost her own life. As though this isn't enough, she learns that one can feel betrayed by deceased loved ones.

Once again I was pleasantly surprised by the realistic characters this author creates. Not only are the main characters strong and unique but they are normal enough not to be above self-pity, dishonesty and pettiness. When one of the characters is blinded in the line of duty, his response to his condition as well as the reactions of those around him, is absolutely natural and realistic. I was extremely impressed with the accuracy with which Katherine Owen wrote about the subject of the newly blinded, which she must have researched thoroughly.

As she uses the first person narrative present to tell the story, I was there with the characters as they experienced their trials and joys.

More About the Author

There is dark. There is edgy. There is love. There is angst.

Were we describing me? Or my fiction? Sorry.

I drink too much...coffee, not enough water. I swear too much for God and my mother, and I slip these into my fiction. Sorry.

I'm impatient, a perfectionist, a wordsmith, a dreamer, which ends up being good and bad. I'm a workaholic; ask my fam-dam-ily. I've written four novels in as many years: "Seeing Julia", "Not To Us", "When I See You", and my newest release "This Much Is True".

If you are a fan of angst and unpredictable love stories, I'm yours. ♥

I'd love to hear from you. Visit me at my webpage: www.katherineowen.net or connect with me on Facebook www.facebook.com/KatherineOwenAuthor.
