LOVING CARA by Kristen Proby

Posted: February 7, 2014 by BA Dillon in BOYS are just BETTER in BOOKS (Romance and Indie Authors)



Ms. Proby is a gifted storyteller. The With Me in Seattle Series is in my top ten list, and I absolutely love the Montgomery family. So … I was anxious for her new series. And, I’m sure you can tell … I’m stalling. Here’s the problem. I am not a fan of insta-love! I like insta-connection, but not insta-love. And that is my beef with Cara and Josh’s story. It felt like one day they saw each other again, reconnected after high school, and then the next day they were madly in love. Perhaps more story of their past friendship would have helped. I completely loved Cara’s relationship with Sean, and found that very believable. Also, once they were together I found Josh and Cara’s relationship endearing. Cara’s friendship with Jilly, who is miles away is exactly what best friends should be about, and I’m sort of disappointed that Jilly isn’t getting the next story! Ms. Proby writes excellent family dramas, and I wish this story had more of that aspect. I would have liked more background to Josh and Zack’s relationship, and what led Zack away from the ranch. I wish the twin’s parents were developed more as well. Sean is also an interesting character, and we get just a sliver of him. I want the entire background story! What happened to him? Kristin still delivers a dialogue-driven story filled with hot, hot, hot romance. She is such a gifted storyteller, I am certain this installment is falling a bit flat probably due to the fact that a publisher/editor is now involved. I can hear it now … cut this … cut that! Overall the entire story felt undone and rushed. Hey Mr. Publisher/Editor – leave Proby alone!! She’s a damn fine writer with a great following! I can’t wait for the next installment in the With Me series (which Proby self-publishes). I bet this one will be cooked to perfection!
