Kate is smart, focused, totally goal-orientated and practical and nothing like the beautiful and glamorous Margo, who we met in Daring to Dream, now happily married to Josh and expecting their baby and not a dreamer like the sweet Laura, who finally divorced her cheating and thief of a husband and struggling with bringing up her two beautiful d ...more
This is the second book in the Trilogy, Kate's story, and I think I like it best so far. I haven't read Laura's story, the final one, but Byron De Witt from this book is the frontrunner for being my favorite guy of the series- the man, with the lavish descriptions of his physique ...more
I liked this a lot, but at the same time I wanted to like the romance more than I did. I don't know why I didn't. I am having a weird week on pretty much every level.
-Southern boy named Byron would have made even more sense if he were Byron something something the third.

I really love this book. This is actually my favorite out of the three. I can feel Kate Powell so much. I think we have a lot in common. And Byron. Byron *hearts everywhere*.
