I thought The other half was a good story with interesting characters and plot that kept me hooked on the story . This would be the start of a new series the Door Peninsula Passions and I can't wait to read more by Katherine Hastings also this is the second book that I've read by the author . From reading the blurb didn't realize how much I was going to like Cassandra but quickly was taken with her . Oh my gosh Jake he tries so hard to stay away and have his shields up but Cassie breaks through ...more

Okay.... I don’t know what to write so let me just give you the gist of the book while I get my thoughts in order.

She is dragging down the Davenport and destroying herself on the process and her grandfather has finally had enough. He is cutting her off and their company, their legacy, will be sold leaving Cassandra with no company to run. Upon much pleading a deal is made, Cassan

The Other Half, Volume 1 of the Door Peninsula Passions series by Katherine Hastings, is a must-read for any rom-com fan!

Cassandra fills her time with partying, doing drugs and spending money while she waits for the reins of the family business to become hers. But when she’s cut off and given one last chance to prove she’s worthy of the legacy her grandfather built, her life isn’t the only one that takes a turn.

Jake’s life of peace and solitude is completely disrupted when Cassandra drops into D

Cassie is the ultimate party girl with a trust fund, whose life is spiraling out of control, so her grandfather puts his foot down. He tells her that she has to prove that worthy of the legacy he built, and sends her off to live like normal people live with no help from family, and she lands in Door County with limited resources, a rusty car, her tiny dog, and no job skills. And most importantly, she has to rely on herself, not others to get by. So you already know that this isn't going to go we ...more

Katherine might just be one of my new top favorite authors! This is my second read from her and I couldn’t get enough and loved every second of it! Cassandra has spiraled out of control after the death of her parents, and when it’s gotten to be too much, her grandfather gives her an ultimatum of living like most people do along with many stipulations in order to gain her inheritance. Upon arriving at her destination, it’s a complete culture shock to her and through that shock meets her neighbor ...more

This is a well written book with a fun and entertaining story line. The author brings two opposites in spoiled rich party girl , Cassandra and hardworking ,solitary man , Jake , gives them an instant attraction and hot chemistry and sets them off on an hilarious journey that had me laughing out loud throughout. She does give them some ups and downs as well and will need to work through her "secret". I loved their story and would recommend this book.

Spoiled little rich girl needs to prove that she’s worth it to inherit the family company, finding love as a bonus. The story of Cassie and Jake.

I really loved this book. It was funny and engaging. Opposites attract when a spoiled rich girl is forced to live with very little and meets up with a hard- working man. Opposites really attracted and had great chemistry. I would love to read more by this author.

The Other Half was a sweet, and fun rom-com. Cassandra is a rich girl that is trying to get back on her path and Jake is just trying to recover from previous heartbreak. Their relationship is one of laughs and instant chemistry but can has some ups and downs. I am looking forward to future books from this author set in this world.

The Other Half was a wonderful, sweet, and fun rom-com. Cassandra is a strong character that is trying to get back on her path and Jake is just trying to recover from previous heartbreak. Their relationship is one of laughs and instant chemistry but can it withstand all of the outside influences. The setting for this book was picturesque and now I need to book my next vacation to Door County. I am looking forward to future books from this author set in this world.

The Other Half is the first romantic comedy in the Door Peninsula Passions series and what a sweet romance it is too.

Cassandra Davenport is a twenty-eight-year-old socialite with a penchant for being very dramatic, though she has been cosseted all of her life so her new lifestyle is a huge shock. Jake Alton, also twenty-eight years old is the total opposite of his new neighbour, Cassandra. A commercial fisherman, he is an extremely quiet man who now prefers to be on his own. Well, they do say op

Spiraling out of control after the death of her parents, Cassie’s grandfather has had enough. He gives her an ultimatum-live out in a secluded cabin without the family’s money and prove she can make it, or get cut off. When she gets there, she doesn’t expect the run the down cabin, or her new neighbor, local fisherman Jake Alton.

Both Cassie and Jake are dealing with the pain from their pasts and they need each other to learn how to forgive not only other people, but themselves.

A delightful story.

Cassandra uses alcohol, drugs and partying to deal with her grief, with no money worries her life has been easy and she's taken it for granted untill its taken away from her.
Jake has had his heart trampled on by his ex-girlfriend and is struggling to deal with it, he's broody, inconsolable and has sworn off women.

I love the chemistry between Cassie and Jake, they are so endearing.
Good strong secondary characters, i love Jo and cant wait to read more about her.

The story flows

Living on a budget could be fun?
This witty tale also has a serious side and I enjoyed both. Cassie tries to block the pain she feels by using drugs, alcohol, and acting like a bad girl. Then the hammer drops and Cassie now has to face her problems and do a little growing up. Jake, the hottie next door well things have got interesting. The characters and where this story takes place is what made this so interesting to read. I really enjoyed every minute I spent reading. I did receive a free copy

Cassie is known as a party girl spending her families money as fast as she gets her hands on it until her grandfather puts his foot down and tells her he is cutting her off and she has to learn to make it on her own as proof she can handle the family business. She moves into a rundown house next door to Jake who enjoys his life quiet and uncomplicated but the beautiful next door is hard to resist and maybe he doesn't.

Cassie and Jake are two peas in a pod in the garden of eden in the woods :) Cassie might screech at a pine snake, but she can hold her own when out of her high society element. Jake has been burned by love. Cassie has her own healing to do. Together they learn two are better than loneliness. I loved the setting, the characters and don't forget two of the most adorable dogs. Great book and love story. ...more

The writing draws you in and keeps you involved throughout the whole story, I found myself in love with not only the characters but also the world that was created.

The descriptions of the characters and their feelings are so involved, you can truly picture it in your mind. Their attitudes toward the events that are happening makes the story even richer.

A spoiled heiress who doesn't know anything about living in the real world. So much depth of character, tough love, laughter, broken people, and healing. This is the perfect book to bring light, life, and laughter to a dreary day. I honestly don't know the last time I laughed this much and this hard when reading a book! ...more

Opposites attract rom-com about Cassie and Jake. She's trying to prove she's more than the messes she's made for her family and he just wants a quiet life after his crashed and burned engagement.
It's witty with a side of serious.

Katherine Hastings loves love. It’s why she writes romance novels. Getting lost writing a romantic adventure is one of her favorite pastimes. When she’s not on an adventure with her characters, she can be found at her home in Wisconsin snuggling her husband, two Boston Terriers, and the world’s naughtiest cat. Two things make Katherine want to leave her happy home these days... going for rides on ...more
