The first in the Acceptance Series, “Breaking Kate” is an excellent beginning to this contemporary fiction novel. D. Kelly gives us characters that we fall in love with immediately and a story line that grips us instantly. Michael Matthews and Katherine Moore are high school sweethearts and believe they’re meant to be together forever. They have plans to attend college together and anyone who knows them knows they will eventually get married and live happily ever after. However, tragedy strikes the summer before they go to college. In the moments of grief, things are said, accusations are thrown, and hearts are broken. Three years go by and things happen to the two of them to where they are irrevocably changed forever.
Three years later, Katherine is going by Kate and Michael is going by Mike. Kate is living with her best friend and surrogate sister Jess and in her last year of college. She is head strong and serious about her school work. This has helped Kate get over everything that happened with Mike. Mike is sleeping with any girl he can and does things with these women that he never did with Kate. His life is spiraling out of control and he knows that the way things were left with Kate is why his life is the way it is. But Jess, with her outgoing, at times overpowering personality, talks Kate into going to a party thrown by Kate’s friend Connor, who Jess is trying to date. While she is at the party, Connor hooks Kate up with one of his closest friends, Daniel. It is truly love at first sight for the two and they spend the whole night talking and realizing that they were meant to meet. Daniel and Kate immediately fall into a fairy tale romance. Kate tells Daniel she is looking for “Someone who will believe in us even if we are failing. Sometimes all love needs is two people who believe in it enough to resurrect it and keep it alive.” However, their fairy tale hits some bumps and pitfalls.
Author D. Kelly gives us a fired up romance with sex that will scorch up the sheets. Once I started reading this book, I could not put it down. While readers are falling in love with the characters, not just Kate, Daniel, and Mike, we are also anxiously awaiting how this book will end and how the author will continue in the next book in the series. I absolutely cannot wait to read the next book in this series.
