Loving Kate (Silver Bay series Book 2) by Lara Van Hulzen - Review


Kate MacIntire is determined to live life on her own terms. No muss, no fuss. But when motorcycle riding, free spirit Jack Harden enters the picture, she has no choice but to reconsider.

Moving from Boston to the charming town of Silver Bay, California was supposed to be Kate's fresh start from a painful past relationship, and she's happy with the life she’s building for herself. Order and structure, just the way her somewhat-control-freak self likes it. Until Jack.

Never one to turn down an adventure or a challenge, Jack wants nothing more than to see Kate let loose and embrace the carefree woman she used to be.

But when her past catches up with them, can loving Kate be enough for Jack to break through the walls she’s built to protect herself?

My Review:

After her marriage ended badly, Kate moved from Boston to Silver Bay California.  She wanted to start her life over and do as she dreamed of so many years ago, opening her own interior design shop.

Kate finally hard her life under control when one day Jack, pulls up beside her on his motorcycle and startles Kate and she crashed into a parking meter and falls off her bike.  Kate never expected to end up becoming friends with Jack, much less fall in love with the bad boy biker.

Ever since Jack saw Kate at his brother’s wedding, he has wanted to know her.  He wanted to get her to open up and have some fun.  Get her to loosen up some.  But Jack had no idea how tightly wound Kate was and everything she had gone through in her marriage.  He vowed to stay by her side and protect her no matter what life threw their way. 

This sweet romance shows that opposites do attract and can bring out the best in each other.  There were a lot of great moments and obstacles the characters had to overcome.  I enjoyed reading their story and seeing how Kate and Jack eventually found love.
