Kiss Me Kate – by Katy Regnery

Original Cover 
My own copy

The blurb:

Kiss Me, Kate is the sixth of six books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome English brothers (and one lovely cousin!) who are all on the look-out for love.

Kate English, cousin to the beguiling English Brothers, has relocated to Philadelphia and now works with her cousins at English & Company. The problem with moving to Philly? It was where Kate met her first love, Etienne Rousseau. Since the move, Kate can’t seem shake the painful memories of a romance that broke her heart.

Etienne Rousseau, neighbor and arch-enemy of the English family, is recently single and has every intention of enjoying his newly-minted bachelor-status. That is…until his brother inks a deal with English & Company, forcing Etienne to work with his one-time lover, Kate English. Though he wants to hate the girl who once destroyed his life, he can't deny the fierce attraction or hide the deep tenderness he still feels for Kate.

With vibrant flashbacks of their passionate, teenage love affair making it impossible to ignore their unresolved history, Kate and Etienne will commit to unraveling the secrets of their heartbreaking past to make way for a breathtaking future.

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

Back in this wonderful world of the English family, yay!!!
Well, now that all the five English brothers have found their soulmate it’s time for their cousin Kate. We got introduced to her in the last book and already got a glimpse on what it could be about.

Kate has moved back to Philly from New York and has started working for English & Company. Going back also confronts her with her past or certain people from the past, especially Etienne Rousseau, her first love. When she hears that he was in an accident, she is worried and starts stalking him on his sister’s Facebook account. And it gets better. English & Company collaborates with Etienne’s family’s company and the have to work together. The tension is there from the start, the can’t really think strait in each other’s company, but so much has happened, they don’t really trust each other anymore.

Kate’s cousins are really protective of her and they don’t like Etienne, so they try to keep her away from him.
When Etienne and Kate start working together, all the memories come flushing back. I loved how these memories were included in the story, like a chapter with a flashback and then back to the present. I adored reading about their love story, how they got to know each other, how everything developed and how they wanted to fight for their future. Of course, there was already a lot of drama involved back then and it seems that both their families were not honest with them.

When they have to go to New Orleans for business they start talking about everything and they finally find out what really happened. This opens a new door and they are willing to fight for what they feel. Etienne comes across like a heart-breaker and bad boy, but when it comes to Kate he is tender and sweet and you can feel his love and attraction for her immediately. They had a lot of passion and chemistry, which was a pleasure to read about.

One thing I always like in Katy’s stories, is that the perspective changes and we get insight to both their emotions. It made me see Etienne from a different light and it is a great mixture of different viewpoints.

This story has lots of magical and romantic moments, it’s also a bit of a modern Romeo and Juliet tale, just with more details and passion.
It was great to read about all the English brother’s again, because I loved every single one of their stories.

The ending was full of power, sweetness and love; I had a huge smile on my face. So thank you Katy, you did it once again!!!

A touching, emotional and passionate story of two soulmates, finding a way to be together.


My possible cast:

Kate: Princess Madeleine of Sweden
