Blog Tour and Review: Caught Up in Us, Lauren Blakely

Reading Level:Contemporary Romance/New Adult




Self-Pubbed 1/20/13



This was a really cute and frothy read. Kat is graduate student at New York University and in order to graduate, she needs to pass a business class in which she is mentored by a successful alumni. Unfortunately for Kat, it turns out to be the one person who shattered her five years ago. Her brother's best friend and her secret summer boyfriend. Kat does everything she can to get out the assignment, but it's just not going her way.

Lauren weaves a business angle, a love story, a small bit of a mystery and yet she leaves you begging for more. Bryan knows his faults, but is willing to try to work them out with Kat; who seems unwilling to give up her heart yet again. And for good reason. He just left. No reason, nothing. Just adios, see ya later and I'm done. Total heartbreak.

My only problem was the mystery bit. It sorta fizzles out and there is no resolution to it, or it's swiftly pushed aside. I'll call this first time authoritis. It happens. It doesn't ruin the story, it's a bit jarring, but other than that. I really enjoyed it.

It does get hot at moments. There are some scenes that are scorching and the two characters are in separate locations! Yep, I'll leave that up to your imagination.

I think this is a great beach read, snowy day read, rainy day read, etc.

And during the blog tour the book is bargained price at $0.99! (Amazon only)

Five years ago, Kat Harper fell into a dizzying summer romance with her brother’s best friend Bryan. It was a mad, crazy love full of kisses all through the night — but he broke her heart and she had to move on.

Five years later, Kat is finishing her graduate degree and building her business as a jewelry designer, when Bryan, head of his own successful company, walks back into her life. Bryan has been assigned to Kat as her new business mentor and the rules are clear. No hanky panky permitted. That works for both of them. Kat needs to grow her business to help her parents; Bryan needs to run a clean operation after his former business partner’s romantic scandal that rocked his firm.

Kat can handle that because she's totally over him... right? Except, he still makes her laugh. And he remembers all the things she likes. And he's more handsome now than he was then. Then there’s the spark between them — the simply undeniable chemistry.

Can they resist each other? Or are they willing to risk everything for a second chance at first love?

Lauren Blakely is an unabashed fan of clever jokes, toast, and good guys in novels. Like the heroine in CAUGHT UP IN US, she thinks life should be filled with movie kisses and coffee drinks. Lauren lives in California with her husband and children, and spends her days writing both true stories and make-believe ones.
