I am a HUGE Acceptance Series Fan...and have mercy have we been on a ride of a lifetime. I have laughed, cried, and almost threw by kindle out the window a couple times the entire series. Loving Kate, makes me sad because it's the last book in the series, but it is written so beautifully, that it will have you re-reading the series just to fall in love with the characters again.

After the blowout at Jake and Aprils engagement party, Kate finds her

Wow! Talk about one emotional roller coaster. I laughed, cried, growled, and sang hallelujah while I read. I swear Ms. Dee loves to have me a ball of nerves while I read. Seriously, Dee, I could not stop reading once I started.

So much happened in this book, some of it I predicted would happen, some of it shocked me, and some of it just ha

This series needs to be read in order, and the main character is Katherine Moore AKA Kate or Katie Grace, but in saying that the supporting characters are also great - and the story wouldn't be the same without their constant input into the storyline.

As this is the last installment in the Acceptance series, you’ll want to begin with Breaking Kate and Releasing Kate. There is also the novella from Mike’s POV, Catching Kate.

We left off with Daniel hurt and wanting to be left alone after Kate had slept with Marc. Although they weren’t technically together at the time, it guts him. Kate seems to justify her actions because of the things she thought she saw and further rationalizes that her and Marc were meant to have a fling at some point. I fi

Let me just start this review with telling you I am strictly Team Daniel and always have been, always will be. The way D. pulls you into the lives of Kate, Daniel, Michael and the rest of the gang is simply amazing. I was completely invested in this book, these friends were my friends and I went through all the ups and downs with them. This series has been an emotion ride from the start and D. does not disappoint with Loving Kate.

Nothing can describe this book and the emotions it will bring out in you. This is a story about three people and the love they inspire within each other. Love ,loss , pain and rebuilding a relationship that was destroyed by miss understandings and misguided intentions. In this third and final book in the acceptance series Kate finally reveals who she chooses and we find out why she made the choices she made. The characters in this story takes the reader on an emotional journey that will make you

I love this series as big as the sky.

It has all come down to this. The last book of the Acceptance series and I was drowned with all the emotions before, during and after reading Loving Kate. I was scared, sad, happy, sad, sad, and happy in no particular order.

Whether your #TeamDaniel or #TeamMike you will definitely love this book! It wouldn't be easier to the other party who doesn't get chosen by Kate but D. Kelly had made sure that all her characters ge

I honestly don’t know how to put into words how much I love this book. I am afraid no matter what I say I won’t do it justice. I love this series. It has made me FEEL every emotion possible. I have cried so much, laughed so hard and wanted to reach through my kindle and slap several people. You have to read all the books in order or you will be lost and you will lose some of the emotion tied to the entire story

Been counting down for book 3 in this series about Kate. As the first two books left the reader wondering how this love triangle would turn out finally the ending I needed. Kate grew up with Mike and loved him until he dumped her so suddenly. She was broken for years until she met Daniel, she learned to open her heart and find love. Mike shows up and he and Daniel are best friends. Throw in a baby that could be Mike or Daniel's. I have always been on Team Daniel but you have to love Mike. Excell ...more

Yes this love triangle had me guessing at all times through out the series! When I thought I knew what was coming nope I was wrong! I seriously loved all three books.

We have the final piece to this story; the last book in this series that I must say was an emotionally epic ride. The author wrote this in such a way, the readers felt like they have lived every page, felt every emotion and grew up with the characters as we watched life make them mature. We have felt every bad choice and experienced every consequence. We celebrated every victory no matter how small and claimed mental exhaustion after every chapter.

So much has been said about the book already in

OMG!!! No joke when I tell you that I finished this book a few days ago and I still can't believe it! I been trying to figure out what to write and how to write it. Without giving anything away. This is one of my favorite series. This series wasn't just about Kate and her 2 loves Mike and Daniel. This was about them and their friends. But, their friends were their family. Their gang of friends were just as important to the story as Kate, Daniel & Mike were.

I have been in love with this story since the time I received the first book, Breaking Kate, for a blog review. Reading about Kate and her love for Michael and Daniel, and their love for her, has made the Acceptance Series one of my favorites.

I have been on this rollercoaster with all these characters that have seeped into my pores and have been anxious to see where they take me. Having lived through the heartache that Kate endured when Michael left her, completely sucked me into their story and

What an amazing end to one of my favorite series! I can’t believe it has come to an end….sniffles….Kelly did a fantastic job of answering all of my questions, and all the characters resolving their issues. As with all of her previous books, it’s an emotional rollercoaster. But, those books are my favorites.

Loving Kate picks up where the last book left off. Kate is still very much in pain and torn between the two wonderful men that she loves. I wasn’t too happy with her when she made some questio

I have been waiting for what seems like forever to get my hands on this book and to see what would be come of the whole Kate, Daniel and Mike saga. It is told in multiple POV's but all are easily distinguishable and it isn't a repeat of the same event. There was so much going on in this book and I was guessing most of the way through. Loving Kate picks up right where the last book left off. You absolutely have to read the other books in the series to understand this one. That prologue had me hoo ...more

Simply amazing! Absolutely incredible! And even those words don't do it justice. The amount of emotion that D. Kelly was able to evoke with Loving Kate is astounding. I can't think of another book where the tears just kept streaming down my face.

This must be what they mean when they talk about a book hangover. I feel lost, but in a good way. My brain is spinning. My heart is beating, but I'm not sure at what rhythm. My eyes burn with unshed tea

Kate has to choose between two men. Michael has been Kate's best friend since they were kids and they dated until it ended. Years later she falls quick for Daniel and then comes face to face with Michael now known as Mike. This is the third book in the The Acceptance Series.

Kate made an impulsive decision, one that could cost her. She works to make amends and has to choose who she wants to be with and move forward with. The choice seems impossible, how can you choose between two men who love yo

This is a bittersweet ending for the whole gang, almost everyone gets their very deserving happy ending. I was always #TeamMike through out the series, but in the end, I understand and get why #TeamDaniel is who belongs with Kate. Mike is my favorite character from this series and I am happy with the outcome of his life. His story didn’t end as I expected it to be, but it made a lo

I have been dying to find out who Kate ends up with. But this book is so much more! Just when you think you have it figured out, a whole new spin throws everything upside down! This is the perfect tell all, answer all book four. Dee Kelly found a way to make this build up so much more than I was expecting. It is an epic love story with an epic tale to fit. So much happens in the book that by the time you reach the end, you feel like nothing was left out.
Kate had made a very questionable decision

Loving Kate is a book I was really looking forward to read, but I was also said that this was the last book in a series that I absolutely loved. D. Kelly didn’t disappoint me.
When I started reading Loving Kate I wished that I had had the time to reread the earlier books in the series because I was a little bit confused at first. I remembered the MAIN characters but I had forgotten some of the minor ones. However, it wasn’t long before I remembered who was who and what had happened previously. Th

In this book we find out what Kate did in the third book has serious repercussions for all of the main characters in all the books.

From the first few pages of Loving Kate I was crying. I have been since day one of The Acceptance Series #TeamMichael. The opening scenes in the the book solidified my reasonings for it. The love Kate and Michael have for each other will always be there. From there the rest of the book just got even better. More tears, more laughter, more surprises all bring this group of friends full circle. No matter what, this group of friends has each others backs.

This is a hard review to write without giving away too much!! D. Kelly brings love, triumph, friendship, heartbreak, and of course...enough steam to fog your glasses to this final installment of the Acceptance Series- Loving Kate.
Our heroine Kate has been through every imaginable obstacle on her way to attaining her dreams and the love of her life. And I believe that Kate shines in this book! She knows her heart and above all which man it belongs too. Even diehard #TeamMike and #TeamDaniel fans

OH MY GOSH!!! This book totally blew me away from the first page. There has been a lot of talk from readers that were either Team Mike or Team Daniel, but I was always Team Kate. I didn't care who Kate ended up with, I just loved the who series.
Kate has always loved Mike. They grew up together and just were childhood friends and grew into lovers.
This series from book 1 - Breaking Kate - has just been hot and full of emotion.

I've followed this series from the very beginning. I've waited and waited some more just to get my hands on just a tiny piece of what was happening next!
It's no secret I've been #TeamDaniel from the very beginning. After I read Catching Kate (book 1.5 DONT SKIP IT) I was so torn but I still held out hope for my guy.
All through Loving Kate I couldn't help but notice... Maybe I've been wrong? Because really when it all comes falling down the most important thing here is friends. Friends that are

Omg! Such a wonderful way to end a series that sends you through a rollercoaster of emotions.

Most people are team Daniel and why shouldn't they be? Daniel and Kate have the kind of relationship any normal person would be jealous of. But in my heart I have always been Team Michael. I just fell in love with him from the beginning, and rooted for him from day one.
