About the Author
Her books are full of strong friendships, hard life lessons, and love that endures the biggest ups and downs. The Catch is her debut novel and is the first book of the Summer Nights Series.
Lauren lives in New England with her husband and two sons. She survives the cold by binging romance in either book or movie format, and she owes almost all of her writing success to her slight addiction to Red Bull.

Diving into this book felt like a Friday night when you just couldn't wait to see how your weekend was gonna turn out, but at the same time didn't want it to end. Cat and Josh are my kind of people; a little wounded, but brave enough to see what they brought out of each other. What I enjoyed most besides the obvious 'bet trope' was the band of friends in the supporting characters lineup. Often times they felt more like family than friends and it certainly gave this book more bang for its buck because they all felt like people you know, people who, well, could be you.
L.H has the ability to immerse you in scene with her nuance. Her description of the world she's built places you right in it and grips you at your very core.
I identified with Catia so much. She reminded me of myself to a point, afraid to make choices, even good ones because her past had left such an indelible fear in what was real and what wasn't. In short she didn't want to look like a fool for love again. Over time Josh was able to prove himself time and time again that he was the real deal, and even Cat couldn't deny him.
Two scenes stood out for me, besides the gripping opening club scene, Josh’s memory of him and his grandpa sitting in the tiny rowboat on the lake when he was younger, not asking him how he was doing but most ardently teaching him how to fish. I just wanted to hug Josh to my bosom, that scene did me in. Thanks L.H for taking all my emotions in this book. I could so vividly picture young Josh with his glorious curly hair swiping sporadic at his tears while grandpa showed him the best way to hook a fish. *tears*
He deserved all the happiness, and he knew beyond the shadow of a doubt he found that in Cat. While we're on the Josh topic can we just swoon over his sexy accent and the way he pronounced Catia’s name ...yeah ...I heard it. I told you this Josh is swoon worthy. The other scene is a little towards the end of the book, II guess it's the grand gesture of sorts when Cat brings her Delonghi and a duffle bag as big as she is standing on Josh’s doorstep practically saying, “I pick you. I love you. I choose you.” She didn't really say any of that, but the gesture certainly packed a punch and allowed Josh to feel more than worthy of her finally, finally giving up her fears and believing in the once-in-a-lifetime love they found.
This was such a sweet read. Totally realistic. I appreciated that there were no horrible breakdowns of communication that could've been easily fixed with a few words between the MC's and every fear and deliberation on both MC's parts felt realistic and valid. The resolution was a worthy pay off for the heart breaking parts of this story. . Like I said upthread, this book felt real and I can easily see it being a movie! Well done!
I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review
