Kate McBrien writes sexy and witty contemporary romance fiction.

She has always enjoyed writing but became serious after being encouraged by a friend (shout out to you, Regina Kammer) to participate in National Novel Writing Month. She began writing historical fiction but soon realized that romantic elements were taking over the historical.

She has an MA in art history, and taught at a local college. She has worked for years as a dental hygienist and will never give up hope on non-flossers.

Kate is a San Francisco Bay Area native who lives near the beach with her husband and Lola, their spoiled Labrador Retriever. When not writing, she enjoys cooking, music, movies, reading, and fangirling over Jamie Dornan.

I'm speechless.

I love trilogies because the author can spread his/her wings that dig deep into the characters and immerse the reader in their world. Well, I don't want to leave Erik, Daisy, Will, or Lucky.

I loved every moment of reading this trilog

I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to read the second book of this series. Knowing the tragic events from Book 1, I wasn't prepared to do a deep dive into Daisy's angst. But I'm so glad I did.

The writing is courageous and the subject difficult

“Justin sat back in his chair and studied her. He bent his head back and took a deep breath before refocusing his attention on her. “I thought I explained this to you. But I’ll be happy to explain it again.” He leaned forward and said with candid sincerity, “I rarely dated. I fucked around. A lot. It’s part of my past, but it’s not my present or my future.” He leaned in closer and whispered in her ear, “Does that satisfy your overactive curiosity? Or would you like me to demonstrate how I feel about you right here?”
