I read this book in half a day and that's with two kids trying to dinner, bath and bed. I could not put this one down. It wasn't because you were sitting on the edge of your seat in suspense or anything it was just too good a book to not keep reading.

Kristen has such a wonderful way with getting you to connect with her characters. Whether they are normal working everyday people like in this story or famous football players, rock stars or actors in her other stories. The dialogue is just so real as you read her stories and watch her characters interact you feel like you are sitting there with them as they interact much like you would with your friends and loved ones! Her characters are so real and believable there is never cheesy lines causing you to roll your eyes or think 'yeah right'.

While reading this story you can easily see how all the characters connect and what's in store for the following two books! I CAN NOT wait!!

Waiting for the next story is probably the only negative thing about this story!! Another MUST read from a MUST read author!!

If you have Kristen Proby's With Me in Seattle series and love the Montgomery family as much as I do(and the rest of the proby peeps) you will Love this Book!! Loving Cara is a wonderful read, I fell in Love with the characters in this book and Montana!! Josh and Cara are great characters and all the sub characters we meet are wonderful.

This has got to be one of the sweetest books I have ever read. The love story was absolutely beautiful and the sexy times were scorching hot! I was SO surprised to learn that this is the same author who wrote the With Me In Seattle books, which I was not a big fan of. I can really see that Kristen Proby has really come into her own and honed her craft very nicely with this book!

Loving Cara follows Carolina "Cara" Donovan and Joshua King as they care for Josh's nephew Seth who was abandoned by his deranged and toxic mother. Cara is a teacher and is hired to tutor Seth, a twelve year old boy, who, because he was raised by such a horrible person, is troubled, rebellious, often lashing out, and very difficult to work with. Cara, though, through her love and patience, is able to help Seth little by little come out of his shell.

Josh works on the Lazy K ranch with his family and is hard-working, kind, intelligent, deliciously handsome, funny, and just an all-around awesome guy. He notices Cara when she comes to teach Seth and is amazed at how much she has grown up since their days in high school.

What I loved so much about this romance was that it was SO realistic. The dialogue was authentic and so easy to follow. I really enjoyed the pace of this book, as well. So many times three or four hundred page books move like molasses. But this hit the ground running from the get-go. I absolutely loved every minute of this beautiful, honest, breathtaking, addicting, consuming book.

I was also extremely pleased that this book wasn't drowning in angst. Nothing kills a good book for me like too much angst. There was a plethora of amazing sexual tension and great development of the characters but nothing that was silly or asinine.

** 2.5 stars **

Let me start by saying that Loving Cara was not a bad book. It was fast-paced, steamy, and had likeable characters and several humorous moments. The thing is, I have read some truly wonderful romance novels lately, and my expectations are very high. I want to be completely in love with every book I read, and sadly, that's just not going to happen.

Loving Cara is a small town romance set in a charming community in Montana. We have Carolina Donovan, teacher and summer tutor to Seth King. Seth has been dumped with his father's family, including his Uncle Josh. Uncle Josh hires Cara to help the troubled Seth get caught up on his school work, but when she shows up at the ranch, he all but decides right there that he is hot for teacher. Josh sets out to win Cara's heart (spoiler alert: he doesn't have to try hard, at all).

At this point, I'm coming to a standstill because honestly, that about sums it up. We have the father/son issues when Seth's dad, Josh's twin comes home. We have some back-and-forth with Josh and Cara due to her not seeing that he truly cares for her and means what he says when he declares love, and such. It was fast-paced, had quite a lot of sex, which we all know is typically fine by me. Josh and Cara were nice people and I liked them together. She'd had a crush on him for years and I love seeing the nice girl win the guy. It's sweet, right?

But, I didn't feel a true connection with the story. Due to the quickness of the relationship, the plot lacked build-up and momentum. That made it hard to become truly invested in the outcome because there wasn't a lot to fight for. And it's not that I want undue or overdone angst or contrived situations, but I needed something to root for.
