He actually wants to try to have a relationship with her. But he has some issues of his own. He is recently divorced with a 6 year old little boy. And an ex-wife who wants to make him miserable.
A lot of this book is a romance. But it was also about Caitlin finding things out about herself. She really dug deep to figure out how to stand on her own two feet.
The book was overall okay. The first half of the book I couldn't stand Caitlin. Then I started to really like her. However there was one part in the book that happened with Michael, that I didn't get because she is a "karate" expert. I won't reveal anything more, but that really bugged me. And it made me frustrated with Ryan when it happened. This book was a nice read to pass the time with. I didn't get too attached to the characters or anything. But it was a nice read.
Caitlin had to get over:
Being an orphan
Not being loved by her grandmother
Being dumped by her boyfriend
Feeling that everyone she loved left her
So what does she do? Initiates a one-night stand with a stranger. Who also has problems.
I finished the book because it was so short but I think this author needs a little less talk and a little more action.
If there is one thing that I would have change, it would be the "karate thing". In my own opinion it somehow doesn't fit. Along with the Karate jargons that were discussed in the book. The author could have created a character like Sensei but a little closer to the ordinary. Like an old man who became the father figure that Caitlin missed? Anyway, such is just a small glitch in my reading and wouldn't have dented my interest to finish the book.
Unlike other negative reviews I've read, I found this book as something that has a mixture of reality and purely fictional. The one night stand and how Ryan pursue Caitlin after is a little over the top. To add to that was when he got rejected and he resort into finding all sorts of legal faults in Caitlin. It got me confused though if he was trying to get even or get her attention. All in all Ryan and Caitlin are both lovable characters. They were able to fight off all adversaries that came their way to make it through their HEA. Some of the scenes, especially the custody battle are realistically written and would let the readers feel the same experience.
The author was also able to make very credible antagonists in the form of the Grandma and Michael. Their presence in the book will keep you at your wits end and find yourself wanting to slap them for Caitlin. Highly recommended and I've read the next book already never wanting to wait another day for the next chapter.
Review: This was a great book that kept my interest at every turn. The story of Caitlin and Ryan has it all, romance, drama, humor and it's sexy. Their story is very well written. It was an easy read that had me cheering for these two to make it thought the twists and turns of life. And did I mention that its sexy. These two are burning up the pages. I certainly have no problem recommending this book to all of you. So pick up a copy and enjoy.
