Today I am reviewing Catch You by M.H.Soars, a New Adult Contemporary Romance novella, which is set to release on April 12th, 2016. First lets get to know the author more. Here is an intro from her :
I always knew creative arts were my calling but not in a million years did I think I would become an author. With a background in fashion design I thought I would follow that path. But one day, out of the blue, I had an idea for a book. One page turned into ten pages, ten pages turned into a hundred, and before I knew, my first novel, The Prophecy of Arcadia, was born. I live in Florida with my husband and baby daughter. I’m currently working on the Arcadian Wars series, the Elements series, and the Love Me, I’m Famous series.
Pride and Prejudice meets Veronica Mars in this new Love Me, I’m Famous novella.
Kimberly – I had always thought Owen Whitfield fit the mold of the brainless jock perfectly. Group of idiot friends? Check. Vapid girlfriend? Check. Ego bigger than the moon? Check. As long as he stayed out of my way, coexisting with his kind was doable. Until one day our worlds collided, changing everything. He pissed me off so badly that I had no choice but to give him a taste of his own medicine. Little did I know that my act of revenge would come back to bite me in the ass. How was I supposed to know Owen would turn out to be the best partner in crime I could hope for?
Owen – I never paid much attention to Kimberly Dawson, but I knew who she was. Ice Queen was what we called her. She was gorgeous, no one could deny that. But she was also a condescending bitch which was enough reason for me to stay the hell away from her. She thought I was a dumb jock and that was okay until she came crashing into my life. Against my better judgment, I let her embroil me in her shenanigans, forcing us to spend too much time together. It was my doom. She got under my skin, she was all I could think about. I never thought I would be the knight in shining armor to anyone, not until she came along.
At first glance, you would think Kimberly & Owen are total opposites. She is the Ice Queen & he is the hot jock of the high school. She never gave a second look towards him while he thought she is a crazy bitch, condescending as fuck!. But as the story progresses you will know how compatible these both are even though they don’t admit that to each other or to themselves.
A single action that was supposed to be Kimmy’s revenge towards Owen and an assignment together in English class makes their worlds collide in ways they never thought possible. Actually their love hate relationship in adorable. If you like high school dramas, this is a book you must read.
What surprised me though is an unexpected mystery thrown into the mix. I am totally a lover of mysteries and this book easily kept a good amount of mystery & danger throughout. There are sexual innuendos & even sex in this book. I am a bit disappointed that the protagonists are only 17 (basically minors) & they are indulging in sex & drinking alcohol. Would have been great if they were, say, 21. Also, I am not a fan of it’s title. It could have been something better. The book cover though is nice.
Overall, I like the author’s style of writing. This is my first M.H.Soars book & it definitely won’t be the last. She gives good depth to each character in the book, especially Owen. He isn’t just a good looking jock. I like that each book in this ‘Love Me, I’m Famous’ series concentrates on each couple. This is a really nice novella that I finished in one day!. Though its part of a series, its a stand alone and I really appreciate it.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars which by Goodreads standards mean I ‘really liked it’!
