Single mom Katie Shaffer works as a bartender at her local pub. It is there that she meets the McAllister brothers, David and Jake. Both men take an interest in Katie, but it is Jake who captures her heart. Jake is newly divorced and he is having a hard time coming to terms with the split of his family. While he cares deeply for Katie, he is having difficulty making a commitment.
One of the best things about Jake is his family. His mother falls in love with Katie and wants to call her daughter-in-law. Jake has a son that hits it off with Katie’s son as well. Katie and his brother David share a special camaraderie that Jake is often jealous of. When Jake’s ex-wife comes back into the picture, she threatens to tear Jake and Katie apart. Do Jake and Katie have what if takes to find lasting happiness together?
Katie is a resilient character who may fall down a time or two, but she get’s back up, brushes herself off and finds a way to go on. Watching Katie learn from her mistakes and grow into a better person brings great satisfaction. It is almost impossible not to shed a few tears for Katie, though, when her life is turned upside down. Thankfully, Katie does eventually get her happy ending, it’s just not the ending that you are expecting.
Jake is a good man who is going through a rough divorce. At times he seems surly and hard to get along with. I love the fact that Jake is a family man who puts his children before everything else. But this endearing quality may be just the thing that tears Jake and Katie apart.
KATIE’S ROCK is told from Katie’s point of view, which brings a personal touch to the story that readers will become enchanted with. Kayce Lassiter has a snarky quality to her voice that produces quite a few chuckles. Be prepared to laugh and cry as Katie learns to navigate the choppy waters of life. KATIE’S ROCK is a sparkling diamond that you are sure to fall in love with!
