Meet Kaitlyn Colby, a clumsy, inappropriate blurter with self-esteem issues, but also quite handy with an axe. She's certainly no superhero, but she fights the battles of a single mom with sweet snarkasm. Between work and pining for and co-parenting with her man-child ex (is there any other kind?), Kaitlyn has no time to find that special someone. And if she did, would he ...more

4☆ A Fun, Uplifting, Laugh out Loud Rom Com!

Project Kaitlyn is a light hearted, Uplifting, laugh out loud, Rom Com and the first book in a new series!

Kaitlyn is a Single Mum of two and very much still hung up on her Ex. So much so, he knows he can emotionally manipulate her into a quick, and I mean quick fumble between the sheets. Leaving her pining after what could be.

But all that maybe about to change, as Kaitlyn decides, or should I say her best friends and Sis aka The Sweet Water Circle,

Kaitlyn has a great group of female friends but the rest of her life is a mess!! Her ex is using .her for sex, her colleagues don't respect her and she has zero confidence in herself.

I must say this series is so funny. I had some laugh out loud moments to the point I didn't want to try the next book in the series because its not about Kait. But it's worth it I promise. If you think about reading this series make sure you start with this book, book one.

This is an obvious romcom so as usual the

A hilarious chicklit that had me laughing out loud. I really enjoyed this fantastic read by Grayson Avery about the realities of womanhood and motherhood amidst divorce, dating and co-parenting. I loved our main character, Kaitlyn Colby who is fun to read about and who gets into the most precocious of situations. Thank goodness for her fantastic support group, the ladies of The Sweet Water Circle help Kaitlyn out of a slump post divorce and hopefully into the arms of

This will brighten up even the darkest day!
What the world needs now is more Kaits! She’s an absolutely indomitable character that takes what life offers her and lives it. Divorced mother of two darling and thoroughly adored children, she is dealing with her ex beautifully and is in the midst of a hot romance with Hunter. Working at the same firm has its complications, but it also has the positive that they both understand the demands that are put on each other. You never know how she is going to

This book was hilarious! I needed a funny, light read after finishing up a heavy one and this sure delivered. I laughed out loud so many times that it started driving my kids crazy since I wouldn’t share the adult humor with them. I loved the friendships/relationships that developed throughout the story and I’m a sucker for a series so I’m excited to get to hear more about The Sweet Water Circle! If you’re looking for a laugh out loud romantic comedy, this is a perfect choice. It should be a mov ...more
This is the start of a new series featuring a group of friends who're initially in their thirties. They call themselves the Sweet Water Circle and plan interventions to help each other navigate the pitfalls life throws in the way of members of the circle.

The focus for this story is Kaitlyn Colby and the Circle are endeavouring to stop her being a wimp and booty call for the father of her two children, her ex-husband who left and divorced her but keeps coming back whenever he feels inclined. He a

This was a fun book! The author has a sense of humor & I caught myself laughing & giggling my way thru the book! A divorced woman with two young kids, an unhelpful ex who takes advantage of her. Kait stops answering to Kaitlynn, Linnie or any form that reminds her of her marriage & becomes Kait! When she meets “Hunky Hunter” & they start working together, going on dates, etc! Of course, it isn’t all smooth when they start drinking Bay Breezes but, will they work it out? Even with Sasha around st ...more

Great Story

There is such a strong message in the story. Kati has low self-esteem. She doesn't think she deserves the best of anything, let alone the gorgeous Hunter. The message is clear: if someone doesn't think he or she deserves goodness, he or she will get exactly as expected. It really is an awesome story. I loved it.

Originally reviewed for Chick Lit Central (

The blunt honesty in Project Kaitlyn was nothing short of refreshing! Kaitlyn tells it like she sees it, even when she shouldn’t, and it is what so many of us wish we’d have the allowance to say out loud when faced with similar scenarios and situations.

Kaitlyn's getting hit from all directions when it comes to her love life and her work life, which ends up intersecting in only the best way possible. Hunter Dixon reminded me of a

About the Book:

Kaitlyn is a single mother of two, a product tester with low self confidence who still pines away for her ex-husband.

Her best friends since childhood (Donna, Shelly, and Jenn-also her sister) form the Sweet Water Circle along with waitlist member, Taylor. The group makes a collective decision during a girls night that Kaitlyn needs to have a fresh start. She starts the work week with a new name, just Kait, a new haircut, and the chance to work on an actual advertising project.

This is the first book in the brand new Sweet Water Circle Series, and is all about Kaitlyn and Hunter. Their story is told over the course of 32 Chapters. The story starts off strong immediately getting the reader intrigued, leaving them wanting to continue reading.
This story in general is very easy to get stuck into, not only does the interactions between Hunter and Kaitlyn keep the reader intrigued in there ongoing relationship. You also have the interactions between Kaitlyn and her friends

In an effort to look for an ARC for a challenge I am doing...I found this on Hidden Gem books. However, I failed realize that it was published the day I found it. (oops) Any way....ever find a book (mostly romances for me) that you want to finish to find out what happens but at the same time you want to savor each word on the page? That's what this was for me. I love Kaitlyn's story. She is a character you can't help but pull for. You want her to succeed. I love that shes clumsy and snarky. She' ...more

Kaitlyn Colby is definitely a klutzy sometimes hot mess, but that’s sometimes what life hands you when you are a single working mom trying to co-parent with your ex-husband. Kaitlyn is quickly approaching 40 and has let herself feel ‘second best’ for too long. With the help of her friends she decides to try to be more confident and to go after what she wants. What does does she want? Hunter the sexy marketing executive who wants her to lead the brand project for his company or her ex-husband?

This book cheered me up. It gave me some laughs and I enjoyed the story. Just what I needed.
Couldn't we all use friends like The Sweet Water Circle ladies? Come along on this ride. You'll be glad you did.
I voluntarily received a copy of this book from the author and I'm voluntarily posting a review. My opinion is entirely my own.

In full disclosure, I won this book in one of the Giveaways and I was beyond excited as I have been entering for giveaways for so long and never won one. Super excited to read this.

I also usually read crime/thriller/suspense type books, so this genre wasn't one I normally would choose, but I wanted to try something different. This year I really want to step outside of my usual reads and try lots of new genres.

This is a light read and fun. I finished it in one sitting as I really need

l always love a good romantic comedy with a quirky heroine and Kaitlyn is just that and more. She is a single mother of two, friends with a wild and feisty bunch of pit sniffers (ya gotta read the book for that one), and a taste tester at an ad agency who wants to do more. She has no time for a love life and is still pining for her ex who is emotionally immature and takes advantage of her vulnerability. Then she literally falls head over heels (an extreme LOL and cringeworthy moment) for Hunter ...more

Oh my God, this was a ridiculously sweet book and I adored it.

Kaitlyn Colby is kind of a hot mess. Nearly 40 and divorced with 2 kids, she has spent most of her adult life believing she isn’t enough. Her friends affectionately known as the Sweet Water Circle try to convince her otherwise, but her ex-husband, while still attractive continues to take advantage of her still-warm affections, the snake at her work undermines her at every turn, and even her boss doesn’t have the confidence in her to d

It was something else

Kaitlyn was much harder of a character to like than Hunter. The 'never serious' man was hilarious and the kind of guy anyone would want for a best friend if not a lover. The banter of the whole book had me laughing, didn't expect that. It was really great to see the development of the characters, the evolution from caveman to homo sapiens to say. At the beginning, Kait wasn't her own woman. She was an ex wife still wanting her husband back just because she thought she shoul

Kaitlyn’s life is in a tailspin. She’s still hooking up with (on occasion...always his occasion) her ex, while simultaneously trying to be a single mom, career woman, and good friend. Never mind HER needs. Never mind her DESIRES. Never mind her dreams for the future and the possibility of finding love that will last. Thank goodness for the Sweet Water Circle of friends, her closest, bestest gal pals, and their Kaitlyn-needs-a-new-life intervention. Without their fashion tips, pit smelling faux p ...more

I received this book through Voracious Readers in exchange for an honest review.

In all honesty I loved this book. It was funny with moments where I couldn’t help but laugh out loud, had great characters that I couldn’t help but care about and a story I enjoyed.

Kaitlyn Colby is a single mother with an unreliable ex, whom is more likely to act like a big kid rather than the adult he is. She wants to progress in her job but lacks the confidence in herself to stand up and fight for what she wants.
