I actually did like this story, however there were a few things that made it difficult to read ...Enough that it takes my rating from a 4 to a 3.
There were a lot of grammar errors. Too many for it not to be mentioned. This definitely needs to be re-worked and fixed, and you would actually have a pretty good beach read on your hands.
The pace is also very quick, maybe too quick for it to be believable. The beginning was specific in both Drew and

This review is from: Catch Me (The Winters Family Series: Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I love a great romance book.
There's nothing like falling into a story and meeting two people who will change each other's lives.
This was just that kind of book.
I found a fondness for Izzy. She connected to me, and drew me in. I loved everything about her. From her dialog,
to her little insecurities.

Romance, joy, love, and smiles

Believable, appealing characters with potent chemistry! Kelly skilfully relies on real-life events and emotions that we can all relate to. With such seemingly simple, but effective prose she doesn’t need a shocking or outrageous story line.

Masterfully under-pinned with fascinating families, the characters come to life. This is sexy, seductive, real and fun, with an added bonus of mouth-watering recipes

I’m not big on romance, but this book kept me turning the pages

This book is a very quick read. It's a fluffy little romance with a fair helping of smut.

There was a plot and it kept me interested, though it was a little fantastical at times!

A nice read if you're looking for something quick that doesn't require any thinking!

I'll start by saying this was out of usual reading range. I'm a guy, and I generally prefer thrillers. But I also belong to a group that had expressed a lot of good things about this author's work. I'd already been exploring books outside my comfort range, and thought this was a good book to also try.

I'm glad I did. Though this book didn't change my reading preferences, it did present a lot of good surprises, and exposed me to a whole new viewpoint, that of a plus size woman worth more than she

There are times when I like to read a good romance novel.
The reasons: I spend a lot of time writing mystery novels featuring strong female characters and I enjoy reading books that (a) give me some new perspectives and (b) show me how other authors treat their female characters, especially those with a mind of their own.
Author Terra Kelly's "Izzy" Sloane is a strong female character in "Catch Me," although there was a time when she wasn't. In fact, there was a time when she caved in to her forme

I really enjoyed this book. While reading I found myself smiling and laughing. The characters are very realistic and I enjoyed getting to know them.

The two leads are instantly attracted to each other and although Izzy initially questions that Drew could be attracted to her and her curves, the two begin a relationship.

This is the story of Isabel Sloane and Drew Winters. Isabel has just moved for a temporary position to North Carolina from Philly after ending a relationship with a sleazy co-worker.

A modern parable of bliss! For me this charming book embraces the ease and sincerity of a positive fable; the author`s desire to build a moat against an unkind world--and invite us into her loving, supportive and delicious bubble. It was so seductive, the steamy lovemaking and delectable dishes, I was almost sad to leave at Catch Me`s closing. Having the recipes used during to narrative posted at the end was a thoughtful touch. As for this Venus and Mars thing that allegedly separates us, after ...more

I hate that I have to review this book at this status, but I just can't subject myself to any more of this story.

I was so excited to read this book just off these factors:

A) The hero is a FIREFIGHTER!!
B) I had heard great things about it

I appreciate how the author introduced the main characters in the beginning, but what I didn't appreciate was how quickly the hero and heroine went from lust/infatuation to love in those short of pages that I'd read. There's nothing wrong with giving the

A wonderful, passionate love story.

Once in a while I like to take a break from the murder and mayhem within the thrillers I typically read. The cover of this book caught my eye and I picked it up…and simply liked it very much. The storyline isn’t complicated – girl meets boy, they fall in love, etc. But the author did very well in developing the characters to the point where I began to care for them. Not just Isabel and Drew (hot stuff!), who’d be fun to hang around with, but also their families

This story is a little bit different from the last couple of ones that i read.
The love storylike Isabel a Drew have, can ring to your door.
From the first time they saw each other the attraction was high. They wanted to be together from day one.
Isabel is a reporter in a local channel, and wanted to fly high, so she moved to North Carolina to do her job, grow up on her carrier and then settle down in her home town.

My rating is solely based on my taste. I didn't like the story. There was little to no plot and the characters did not live up to the author's description. They were described as commitment shy, but fell in love and into bed without a moment of hesitation. Even the cover was a contradiction. The female character described herself as a plus-sized girl, while the cover depicts anything but that.
The very little bit of conflict was so insignificant I don't know why the author bothered.

I really enjoyed everything having to do with the story that is told in this book. The chemistry and families left me wanting to read more and see family member more in depth. The only thing that really bugged me in this book is really just a matter of formatting. Everything just kind of flowed from one paragraph to the next, but it would switch people or jump in time so I would be reading and all of sudden be like oh wait this is her perspective now. Honestly just adding breaks would solve this ...more

I would describe this book as great summer reading. The type of story that leaves you happy and allows you to escape in to the world of romance.

I particularly enjoyed the two main characters. Isabel was made more believable due to her experiencing human self-doubt and insecurity. While Drew the alpha, handsome male had a history of superficial women in his life that made him feel real.

Family connections feature strongly within the story line and allow the reader to be pulled in to the characters

What a great first book and beginning for this freshman author :) A sweet, romantic, easy read that's good for when you're busy and may have to stop reading, at least it was for me. I was able to put it down when my un-plugged life interfered with reading. But, as soon as I had the time to pleasure read, I did look forward to getting back to this story :) ... Even tho I won this in a book event online, I would definitely recommend this read to fiction lovers of romance :)

It was sweet and made for a nice Saturday afternoon read while I was getting healthy again. I enjoyed the relationships with their families and the main characters. It is not very often you read a man who admits that he may have been judging based on appearance so this was a breath of fresh air.

Will look forward to the rest of the series

This is a very interesting book about two people falling in love. It is the first book in the Winters Family serial, and, based on this book, I think this will be an excellent series.

Drew Winters is a firefighter in Wilmington, a small town on the coast of North Carolina. Isabel “Izzy” Sloane is a news reporter from Philadelphia who moves to Wilmington. She is a plus size woman who has, often, been, unfairly, judged based to her size. In spite o

Drew and Izzy, can they find love

Izzy moved from Philadelphia to North Carolina to work in a TV station. Her neighbor, Drew, is a fireman who has grown up in the area. They have a spark, but Izzy's contract is only for two years. The story grows as their relationship changes. For those who enjoy the love story with conflict of course. I received this book free for an honest review.

Catch Me is book one in The Winters Family series by Terra Kelly. I really enjoyed the storyline and the story has some great characters. This book can be read as a stand alone,but don't stop here. I read book four first and I can tell you there is more greatness to come! The main two characters in this story are Drew Winters & Isabel Sloan. Can't wait to read more about them!

A sweet, fun, sexy story. A quick light read - perfect rainy day read. The premise of the novel is intriguing & with very detailed descriptions. Entertaining character's with lots of chemisty. Recipes at the back of the book is a nicely added touch. Looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

Terra loves walking her dog, snuggling with her two cats, and relaxing with her amazing hubby. A steamy romance book is never far from her grasp, and 2:00 a.m. seems to be the sweet spot to finally put a book down and sleep. She laughs loudly, smiles often, is a bit of a klutz, and tries to always find the positive in everything.

Writing was not on the list of must-do’s for her career, but she alwa
