KISS ME KATE by Katy Regnery rocked my world! I have enjoyed every single book in the English Brothers series but there was just something about this angst-ridden second change at love tale between rakishly handsome Etienne Rousseau and sweet yet feisty Kate English that gave me all kinds of deliciously swoony feels unlike any of the other installments that came before. This stormy, tumultuous romance just DID things to me...there was such rich back-story between Kate and Etienne and it played out so beautifully that it made my heart thunder wildly in my chest, brought bittersweet tears to my eyes and left me sighing in rapturous wonder.
I adored this book from start to finish...the whole Romeo, and Juliet forbidden love theme is just timeless, and Katy Regnery hit all the right notes with this tempestuous tale. The juxtaposition of the story within the story where Kate and Etienne's "doomed” love affair was chronicled between the present and the past was absolutely brilliant! I particularly relished the flashbacks recounting their whirlwind teenage courtship and the emotions were so palpable and real I felt as if I was falling in love right along with these two infatuated, starry eyed teens!
And I also was mightily impressed with the manner of which the whole convoluted truth of how—and why—our star-crossed duo were torn apart was woven throughout, and when all the heartbreaking revelations finally came to light it was quite a sucker punch! Turns out that nothing was as it seemed…and I love nothing more than when an author changes the playing field by throwing some curveballs into the mix!
The romantic chemistry between Etienne and Kate was positively breathtaking!! Ten's biggest regret was losing the girl he'd loved and lost. They fell head over heels for each other over the course of a week at the tender age of at 15 but as is the case with this heart wrenching story, in some rare instances your first love just might end up being your last.
“You are love, Kate English. Nothing will ever, ever change that for me. Because I defy any other plan for my life. I refuse it. Because this is real—me loving you and you loving me. Because I swear to God, Kate, I will still love you on the day I die.
Even though they were torturously torn apart and eventually moved on with their lives…and to other lovers…their hearts always belonged to one another. Turns out over the course of their 12 year separation their pent up yearning still burned bright!! Now as they finally reunite and are forced to work side by side in a joint business venture between the English and Rousseau clans the love spurned lawyers must set aside their contentious feelings for one another and act professional in order to handle some delicate contract negotiations in New Orleans. But keeping things all business ends up ends up being a lesson in futility because sparks fly every time they breathe the same air and they know they can never truly move on with their lives until they reconcile the long festering hurts and make peace with the past.
Watching these two torn apart lovers pine hopelessly for each other, all the while fighting their feelings every step of the way before finally succumbing to their romantic destiny was a glorious thing to behold!There is a slow percolating prelude to the big consummation scene in this book and when these two hopelessly smitten lovers finally burned up the sheets it was positively explosive! And since I am a big advocate for tons of juicy conflict I naturally derived enormous glee in all the testy squabbling between the English and Rousseau clans. While the resolution of the long festering feud was not tied up with a nice shiny bow, inroads were definitely made and Regnery delivers on a tearjerker HEA that made me weep with joy and sigh in giddy delight!
Case closed! KISS ME KATE was pure heaven from start to finish!!
It's a classic story of misunderstanding and family loyalty that quickly unravels when the main characters are thrown together again as adults. I found is a little confusing how the plot kept switching back and forth between the past and the present without warning. Most authors put asterisks or something to indicate a change of scene, pace, ect. This book does not have that.
It really is a good read if you're looking for a classic, comfortable, stand alone book or to just wrap up the series.
Kate English is the cousin of the fab five English Brothers and the only girl in the family. The brothers are very protective of Kate as well as her uncle and father. It seems they have gone to such extremes to 'protect' her and the result of that over-protection and keeping her in the dark about certain things ended up altering the course of her life and leaving her heart shattered and her self image and confidence in tatters. Of course they didn't do it on purpose...they all thought they were protecting her from heartache and pain when in fact they almost caused her to self destruct. Well-meaning but oh so wrong of them. It proves what I have always believed. Some young people can truly fall in love, a lasting love, at a young age. It is not an everyday occurrence but it is possible.
When Kate was fifteen years old she went to stay with her cousins for a week while her parents went out of town and during that week she met, fell in love with, and gave her virginity to Etienne (Ten) Rousseau, the arch enemy of the English brothers. She has never been able to get him from underneath her skin and out of her heart, no matter all the terrible things her cousins said he did.
Since Stratton English has decided to abandon the career path his family has chosen for him and work for the DA's office English & Co is in need of another legal eagle and they want to keep it all in the family. Cousin Kate is offered the position and accepts. But when Barrett decides to jump in bed with their rivals, the Rousseaus, on a business deal that will make both families a lot of money, Kate and Etienne are thrown together again after twelve years of no contact. Sparks fly, YES, but it is so much more than that. We get to know Etienne Rousseau and we learn some very important facts about this young man. I won't go into detail but let me just say that he has been gravely misunderstood, wrongly judged, and many injustices have been unfairly served upon him.
For me, this was a book that I couldn't bear to put down and as much as I enjoyed all of the English brothers, there was something extra special about 'Kiss Me Kate.' I highly recommend this read and am anxiously awaiting the new crossover series.
