Apr 12, 2012 rated it it was amazing  ·  (Review from the author)
I'm so thrilled to present Kat Fight. This book is really close to my heart, because it's loosely based on how I met my husband, and has taken me close to three years to get it right. My goal with Kat Fight was pure, classic, romantic-comedy fun. I hope everyone finds it as entertaining and enjoyable as...well, as my husband does.

And yes, you can bet that any book I've read in excess of 25 times gets an automatic 5-stars from me.

Enjoy the fight!

Suggested Improvements to Kat Fight

1. Change location from Advertising Agency to Nuclear Submarine

2. Change Heroine from Office Worker to Russian Spy in tight jumpsuit

3. Change Hero from Copyrighter to Werewolf

This book is really aimed at women from their early to mid 20s...not a 40+ man. I think there are some good things in this book but the characters were a universe away from me and I just couldn't bridge that generational gap

4 KATTASTIC STARS

Kat Fight is the perfect light hearted romance. It’s a combination of light angst with witty humor that makes you smile for days. Dina Silvers books are some of my favorites because she has a way of creating something that’s cute and funny but at the same time heartfelt. I loved it. Kat is HILARIOUS. I swear reading this was like sitting at home watching a Kate Hudson chick flick and just enjoying the ride. It’s a great book to

Kat's boyfriend of four years has been avoiding her. Busy at work, cancelling their dates, not showing up... After all the time they've spent together, Kat's thinking about marriage. Marc's... obviously not. So, Kat decides to show him he should appreciate what he has. She thinks they should either go back to how things were at the beginning, or break up. After another no-show, and a not-so-pleasant phone conversation, she breaks up with him. That should teach him,right? But, Marc seems just fin ...more

Kat’s tired of the waiting game, of the empty promises. Marc has done it again. No phone call and no show. When she tells him to lose her number and she never wants to see him again, I’m thinking, “Go girl!”

So now she’s alone, checking her phone constantly to see if Marc has called. He hasn’t She really needs to move on. Or so her friends tell her.

Kat Fight had me hooked from page 1.  It starts off with a fight between Kat and her ever-disappointing boyfriend, Marc.  After mutually (kind of) deciding to call it quits with Marc, her BFF decides to set her up on a blind date.  Well, that didn't go as expected... since Kat quickly found herself making googly-eyes at her BFF Julie's love interest rather than her own.

Now Kat finds herself in a dilemma... should she tell her extremely opinionated, self-absorbed BFF that she has feelings for her

I bought this book after finally meeting Dina Silver in person at Tarryn Fisher's Write or Die Author Retreat. I have read books by her before but never this one. When she said this was loosely based on her meeting her husband I was sold! This was a cute, fun, lighthearted romance that was a quick read because it was so fun I couldn't put it down. I love Kat's wit and humor and watching her find her way to her happy. I am going to read One Pink Line next as that was another book she mentioned at ...more

Kat Fight is an adorable, light read, it's the good in-between book

I'll be honest, I like my steam, but reading Kat Fight reminded me what kind of books I read... before all the New Adult stuff. It's cute, it's fun and there really isn't too much fuss nor mess.

So, Kat has been in a relationship with her long-standing boyfriend Marc for 4 years. After being stood up for the millionth time, she calls Marc out on it. He doesn't seem very guilty and Kat breaks up with him, because s

Dina Silver is currently on tour with CLP Blog Tours and Kat Fight. I absolutely loved Dina’s debut, One Pink Line, and have been eagerly awaiting her sophomore novel. I was not disappointed in the slightest with Kat Fight. Dina once again brings her powerful writing skills, likeable and relatable characters, and a tender story-line that makes this novel land on my Favorites List.

The story opens with Kat fighting once again with her long-term boyfriend, Marc. She hasn’t been feeling the love lat

Kat Fight is a refreshing read. Lord knows I spend all my extra time reading but when I find a book that makes me laugh so hard my ribs hurt I just have to tell the world. This is one of those books that made me laugh and yell at it all the same. I love those kinds of stories where you know something is going to happen but you are not quite sure what is going to happen so you keep reading until you get to it and then your like oh man is this right?

I cannot tell you how much I LOVED this book! Besides the fact that is so well written, I love that Kat worked at an ad agency in Chicago ( my former profession) and I love that is loosely based on how she met her husband. My favorite character in the book is Adam, Kat's gay best friend. His character made me laugh out loud and for any woman who has ever had a gay boyfriend, you will totally be able to relate and for those of you who haven't, it will make you run out and get yourself one. :)

Dina Silver’s book, Kat Fight, is a fantastic novel and the perfect announcement that she is here to stay in the world of chick lit writers. Kat has a problem. She is juggling two men in her life out of fear of letting one go. More problematic is the fact Kat’s best friend has her eye on one of these men as well. I feel a disturbance in the “girlfriend code” going on here, don’t you? Sharp writing, brilliantly crafted characters; it’s a winner! You will devour Kat Fight, and love it from beginni ...more

This book was so addicting, I flew right through it! Now I'm sad it's over! You can easily relate with the main character. All the characters in the book are well developed and have great personalities. This is a fun, light hearted, romance-comedy chick lit book. I can't wait to read more books by this author!

Dina Silver's, Kat Fight, is a hilarious chick lit novel that left me wanting more. After reading and loving Silver's first book, One Pink Line (review found HERE,) I had high hopes for Kat Fight. Let me tell you that Silver did NOT disappoint! As soon as I started reading Silver's Kat Fight I was sucked into the story and quickly found myself escaping reality.

Kat Fight is about Kat, a young adult that hates to be referred to as 'cute.' For years she has looked forward to her happily ever after

Rated 4.5 Star

Originally reviewed at Novel Escapes

I loved this novel. It was fun, funny, and such a joy to read. I laughed out loud multiple times and whipped through this novel quickly. Kat Fight is fabulous chick lit with wonderful characters to root for and a romantic, humorous plot.

Kat is a wonderful character. She’s warm, funny and very likeable. But she’s also very confused. Who hasn’t been in her shoes, dumped, confused and unsure of what to do, wavering with decisions, wanting to move

I was actually quite fond of this story :) I love the fact that the events and things that happened in this book were so RELATABLE! I love nothing more than a story where you can be like, “OMGosh! This could actually happen to someone!” It makes reading it that much more special!

Kat Fight is the perfect I Need To Get Away read. It’s easy to get into and constantly funny and romantic.

I found the main character, Kat, easy to like. She wasn’t trying too hard — to be funny, find a boyfriend (or husband), please people. She felt very natural. Her relationship with her gay friend, Adam was by far the coolest aspect of the novel. Let me say, I wish I had a friend this awesome. He was always saying the wittiest remarks, yet he didn’t run when things got tough and Kat needed him

This was such a beautiful and charming story! The fact that this book is based on the true events of how Dina’s met her husband just makes it that much more heartwarming. It was such a fun read and I loved the writing.
Kat is ready for the next step in her relationship with Marc but he doesn’t seem to noticed. After one missed date too many Kat decides it’s time to make a bold move and call it quits. Maybe then he will see the error of all his choices but fate has another thing in store for her.

Kat is a 26-year-old woman who has just given her boyfriend, Marc Nolan, of four years the boot. She basically tells him if he can't get his act together then he should lose her number and he does just that. In the midst of it all, she is set up on a date by her best friend, Julie, with a guy named Pete. Not only does the date end horrifically, but Kat finds out that she has the hots for Ryan, Julie's love interest; just when she thinks that things couldn't get anymore hectic, they become very h ...more

Poor Kat is always struggling with some kind of drama in her life, and it’s horrible to say, but I just had to laugh! AND enjoy the fact that her drama is not in my life. Which made this book even more enjoyable.

The choices Kat makes are entirely believable. She wants the best for her friends and for herself, but these choices get her into a bunch of trouble. It’s the trou

Dina Silver does it again! Kat Fight seriously tickles your funny bone. Kat Porter always dreamed of being a bride. The problem is her dreams end up without a suitable groom. When her longtime off and on again boyfriend tells her to cool it, she feels like she'd just flushed five years of marriage investment down the toilet. Her biological clock is ticking, her confidence is shattered, and she's tired of watching "27 Dresses" for the 27th time [okay, maybe I made this up].

Kat Fight should not have taken me two days to finish. It is a short book but what put me off was a number of things..

1. The girl goes after her best friend's crush without her knowledge. Not cool.
2. The girl has an ex-boyfriend who wants her back and we don't know why he wants that besides the writer's say so or not say.
3. The love interest is just there. He does not appear that much that I forget he's supposed to be the love interest. And when he does, he's a paper-character. What you see is w

I love it when I read a self-published book that I adore. Kat Fight by Dina Silver is most definitely one of these. While I have managed to be way more unlucky in love than Kat, I see myself in her. She has a great sense of humor and has quite the tendency to make mountains out of mole hills. Yes, I really do that too.

As Kat’s relationship with Ryan progressed, I found myself grinning with this ginormous goofy grin just because it was

Ok, I am going to start by saying that Dina has now earned herself a spot in my FAVORITE AUTHORS list (see favorite author links on the side of my blog). I was beyond excited about Dina's debut novel One Pink Line, so I had big expectations for Kat Fight. I am so pleased to report that Dina has outdone herself with her second novel Kat Fight.

I have a hard time with chick-lit a lot of times. The issues the characters face seem shallow and arbitrary. However, just like with One Pink Line, Ms. Silver fills Kat Fight with strong characters that make up for the less than stellar plot line. I really did enjoy this book, and I read it in less than a day. There were parts that I was literally laughing out loud, and I liked that both of the love interests were viable options for Kat. The relationship issues she had with Marc can be sympathiz ...more

Cute story about Kat who breaks up with her long-time boyfriend (Mark) hoping he will see what he lost. Mark and Kat have been dating for 4 years. She decides to take a stand hoping that Mark will realize that he has taken her for granted and take the relationship to "the next level." After not hearing from Mark since their parting, Kat takes steps to move on with her life.

The story had some very funny moments as well as some painful moments (for Kat). I enjoyed it. However, I was disappointed
