The day Kit chooses to give up her virginity to her best friend Matt, (in a most hilarious manner), tragedy strikes the group leaving her sister raped and poor Matty dead.
Mourning the loss of their friend, and trying to recover, Kit learns she is carrying Matt's baby, a precious gift from beyond. We follow Kit's story from dealing with Matt's overbearing and hateful mother to Kit falling in love and learning to heal. The introduction of Nate, Kit's love interest, makes a wonderful addition to the friends. While it is clear he is not there to replace Matt in any way, he takes on the role of friend, protector, and father perfectly. My most favorite line from the book regarding Matt, which spoke of how much one came to love him in reading "He may have missed a lot, but he had sure lived while he was here". A poignant reflection on what it means to truly live life.
The book had me crying and laughing all within the same chapter. Loved is a beautifully written tale of true friendship, the ups and downs that come with it, and the journey to healing after tragedy.
Karen Raines is a new author that I stumbled upon and I have hit the jackpot. I have stumbled upon a hidden gem. I just want to run to her and hug and say thank you for this beautiful book. The complete satisfaction and delight I felt after reading this book is priceless. Loved was so fulfilling to read. I was addicted and I'm looking for my next Karen Raines fix.
Loved is more than just life after tragedy; it is friendship, family, love, trust, and moving on. I thought this book was going to be about Kit trying to deal with the loss of her best friend, but it sooo much more than that. I inwardly cringed in fear and disgust, I laughed hysterically that my family looked at me crazy, and I cried unashamedly. I even found myself smiling like a giddy fool. Karen Raines writes a story like no other. It amazes me at how Karen can start a book off with such a devastating tragedy and turn it into something so beautiful and hysterically funny. The amount of depth this story went into left me speechless.
The number one thing I loved about this book was Kit's close relationship with her longtime friends Chris, Mark, Neil, Hayley, and her baby sister Claire. They are such a close tight knit group that is the epitome of friendship. They are always there for each other and have one anothers back. Not to mention hilariously funny with their banter and dirty mouths, especially Mark (who I loved). This closeness extended to Kit's father who was always there for his daughters and treated her friends like his own children since he too was close with their parents. I loved the budding relationship with Kit and Nathan(who just so happened to be black). The not seen too often interracial couple was a fantastic surprise and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
My one issue is that I wanted to shake Kit because she displayed such insecurities when it wasn't even necessary. She was a strong willed female character who had not problem mouthing off and punching a guy square in their nose. But that was it.
I highly recommend this book. It is such an amazing romance novel. I loved it so much. The characters in this book are special. I love them so much and have become do dear to me. I can't to get more of their story, especially Mark and Hayley. I can't wait to jump into Claire's story. Karen Raines is definitely an author to keep an eye on.
Nate arrives on the scene to meet a very pregnant Kit. He’s new to town and opening a new business just down the street from Spiralling Ink. He is instantly taken with Kit as she is with him, but she doesn’t think anything is possible with any man at this point in her life. How can anyone want her while she’s fat and pregnant with another man’s child? Of course, that’s not how Nate sees her and before long they have become family. Nate’s breaking down Kit’s walls and falling in love with her son all at the same time. But nothing in young love can be that easy. They have to learn to trust and communicate.
This is book 1 of Karen Raines’s Spiralling Ink series. I unfortunately read these books out of order, having read book 2 first. I will tell you that I don’t think the story suffered for that error although I will confess that I believe both books would have felt more emotional had I read them in the correct order. Knowing that Matt died and that he was Kit’s best friend who then turns up pregnant took some of the shock value out of reading this book.
But reading book 2, Strength, will not give you Kit and Nate’s story, it won’t give you the insight to another member of the misfits and what losing Matt has done to Kit. Yes, you will know how the timeline fits and the shocking events won’t be as shocking but I still can’t imagine not reading book 1. This is a wonderful story, now to just wait for book 3 and read the rest of the series in the order that the author intended.
