Adam. Enigmatic. Arrogant. Unwilling to take no for an answer. Everything about him threatens my carefully constructed life. Everything about him makes me want him more.
Isabelle Jennings has it good. She’s a self-proclaimed guys’ girl (football, beers, and kicking back with her “bros”) who has worked hard for everything she’s gotten. And she’s succeeded. Only twenty-six, she already has a startup company – one that helps her atone for past sins. She has (well, had) a healthy sex life, a great apartment and an even better group of friends. No romantic entanglements. No mess. Just how she likes it.
Enter Adam Weston, a young, ambitious businessman in Chicago. Between his money, looks, and charm, he’s never had a problem with women. Until Isabelle.
Overwhelmed by her attraction to him, Isabelle does everything she can to avoid the charismatic playboy. But Adam won’t give up that easily. He dares her to be with him, promising sex sans strings.
Isabelle’s burdened with a nightmarish guilt she can’t outrun. And Adam won’t settle for less than everything. He’s breaking down her walls, one touch, one look, at a time.
** Note: Due to language and sexual content, this book is recommended for readers who are 18 or older.**
‘Catch Me’ is book one in the ‘Come Closer Series.’ Katherine Grant had me hooked from the start with a terrifying prologue that I couldn’t help but turn each page in anticipation to see what lie ahead.
Isabelle (Izzy) has a haunting past that she can’t seem to escape and while she has moved on with her life, others haven’t. Isabelle is a strong, successful woman, who is content with not having a man in her life. She’s a love them and leave them type and makes that fact quite clear with the men she chooses to be with. While her life is far from perfect, she’s happy and content and has the support of her three best friends, James, Malcolm, and Will, who happen to be her business partners, and love her unconditionally, despite her quirks.
Adam is successful, hot, and single, and never takes no for an answer. When he meets Isabelle, he’s anything but shy. However, when it comes to business, he has a coolness that is reserved, and he allows the natural order of discovery to occur about his career, rather than tell her exactly who he is.
I don’t want to reveal much as to keep my review spoiler free; however, ‘Catch Me’ was a fantastic read that I couldn’t seem to put down. There are moments of realness, laughter, and plenty of ‘Oh My God’ moments that any reader would be happy to experience with a twist that you won’t see coming.
*A few of my favorite quotes:
“This wasn’t him dangling a carrot in front of me. This was Lucy, putting the football in front of Charlie Brown. In this case, the powers that be were Lucy, I was Charlie Brown, and Adam was the football. Except I didn’t want to kick him, I wanted to fuck him.”
“I’m sorry kid, but this can’t be helped.”
“I’ll always take care of you, kid. I promise.”
“Only fifty-one seconds. I win.”
I really loved reading ‘Catch Me’ and would recommend anyone to take a chance on the ‘Come Closer Series.’ It’s a suspenseful, steamy read. You won’t be disappointed.
