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.
** Due to language and strong sexual content, this book is recommended for readers who are 18 and older. **
Although Catch Me is the first book in a series, it is a standalone novel.

I woke up to the sound of my laptop chirping, alerting me to a new email. My thoughts were blurry, still caught in the horror of my nightmares.
The email was from an address I didn’t recognize. It was probably spam, I assured myself.
But the subject line didn’t look like spam.
You can run, but … you know the rest.
A video download was attached. I really shouldn’t click. But some masochistic compulsion had taken over my body. When you’re a kid, and you think there are monsters under the bed, you have three options. Option one was to stay in bed and yell for your parents. Mommy, Daddy, I’m scared, you’d say. They’d turn on the lights, and check under the bed for you. Nothing’s there, sweetie. Don’t worry. Go back to sleep. And, comforted with their love, you could.
The second option was to cower under your covers, close your eyes, and tell yourself that monsters weren’t real. The third was to brave it, to face it. Get out of bed and look yourself.
I’d always chosen option three. That wasn’t about to change now. Even if the monsters were real.
I downloaded the file, and a grainy video popped up. I recognized the scene. It was from Poltergeist II. I hated scary movies but Simon had made me watch it anyway. I suspected he’d liked how I’d snuggle against him, covering my eyes. It made him feel powerful.
A little blonde girl sat in front of a child’s pink toy telephone. It rang and she answered. She turned to look at the camera.
“They’re baaaaaack,” she singsonged.
At the bottom of the video were four words, words that made my throat close.
Did you miss me?
Katherine Grant is a 28-year-old avid reader, writer and soon to be author in Southern California (who likes to talk about herself in the third person in bios because it makes her feel important). Raised in a town in Michigan so small you've never heard of it, Katie used books as a way to travel. As a child, she talked so much that her family suggested she started writing her thoughts down. And thus, a lifelong dream and career was born. She has been everything from a short-order cook to a teacher to a music journalist. She's finally embarking on being a novelist full time, and she couldn't be more excited.
When not hard at work, Katie enjoys hanging out with her dog, lying on the beach, promising herself she'll one day learn how to surf (although it will never happen), making her boyfriend crazy by refusing to do the dishes, and getting lost in books. Also, cookies. She really, really likes cookies.

Isabelle is our leading lady and Adam is our man du jour! ;-) Adam is overbearing, confident, possessive, caring... I could go on and on and on. I really liked him!
Isabelle is in a pickle. She swears off relationships with men because of guilt she feels for something that happened in the past that she blames herself for. That is until Adam. Well even then she tries hard to push him away. He refuses to leave though. :-)
Let me just say that there are lots of surprising twists and turns, romance, steamy scenes, danger, mystery, and of course an extremely hot alpha male!
I found it hard to walk away from Catch Me and pretty much finished it in one setting. It is a fast paced and compelling story.
I recommend this to those of you who like romance with some suspense and good characters.
I received an ecopy of Catch Me in exchange for my honest opinion. I thought it was great and I will be waiting for the next book!
