Katie In Love- Review

Katie In Love
by Chloe Thurlow
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Katie Boyd has nothing in common with Tom Bridge, the volunteer doctor she meets at a party – except in bed she finds a passion to match her own. Tom is intense, puzzling, a man who cares about others and compels Katie to question her own life drifting through the hip clubs and London party scene.
When Tom returns to his post in a Sri Lanka orphanage, Katie isn’t sure if their passion was lit by its brevity, or if love, unexpected and not entirely wanted, has edged its way into her life. Should she go back to being who she always was? Or follow Tom into the unknown?
Katie in Love is a compelling erotic-romance that will grip readers as they follow Katie’s journey to an ending they may have expected – but not in the way they expected it.
Brilliantly written and coolly self-aware, Chloe Thurlow was described by KM Dylan on Amazon as “…the Ana├»s Nin of our times.” With Katie in Love  – her sixth novel – Thurlow reveals a writer at the height of her powers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't like the characterMarch 21, 2015
This review is from: Katie In Love: full length erotic romance novel (Kindle Edition)
*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.*
Though there are a few minor editing errors, that won't keep you from getting the full scope of this novel. Yes, it's erotic, the author creates a very sexy tale. But, I couldn't help feeling like the character had me spinning in circles. At times, she just rambled about mundane things and it would go on for pages. I started to get bored and flip through until I found more about Tom again.

I like Tom. He was endearing, charming, interesting. I feel like it was Katie that drug this book down for me. I don't know, I just didn't like her. I could not connect with her at all. She was up then down and hell, if she was a real person, I'd worry she was manic. I know this book has a ton of rave reviews, and I hate to be the one to bring it down, I just could not connect with the story.

I do like the way the author writes. She gets a lot across to you without saying much. I will say this, as the story progressed and got more towards the end, it was a little more bearable. Katie was a little better for me, not so all over the place. The author can write. She's very good at that, it's just the character that ruined it for me.

"I ran once more through all the things my tutor had said and the same phrase kept coming back at me like an echo from the mirror: a good spanking is exactly what you need. What he was actually saying is: a good spanking is what I intend to give you, which was shocking, and all the more so that I wasn't more shocked."

The cover is enticing. The title, interesting. I'll definitely try something else by this author. This book just wasn't for me. Either way, grab it and find out for yourself. I seem to be alone in my opinion.
Why no voting buttons? We don't let customers vote on their own reviews, so the voting buttons appear only when you look at reviews submitted by others.

I am a night person, the girl at the bar who looks like she should have gone home and maybe has no home to go to. I compose my work between two and six while the early bird planes follow the Thames into Heathrow carrying bankers and businessmen hoping to make it in the greatest city on earth – London, where I was born on a cold December night with a full-moon overhead and snow covering the garden. Katie in Love is my 6thnovel – more romance than erotic, but as Mother stopped talking to me when I published The Secret Life of Girls, I don't imagine anything is going to change. Katie in Love took 13 months to write and my soul is pressed into every page.
