In the space of a week, Katharine Patterson has quit her job, decided to move back home, and broken up with the guy she thought was the one.
No big deal.
Because Katharine has a plan. She’s going to open her own art gallery, just like she’s always wanted. What she’s not going to do is worry about boyfriends.
Then she meets Kit, a handsome and talented local artist. He might be the most stubborn person Katharine has ever met. He might also make her feel like no one ever has before.
And Katharine might be about to fall accidentally in love…

First, I really love this pink cover! That’s what initially drew me in and then I read the synopsis and was hooked. Second, this book was so good! If I could share all the goodness I felt while reading this book I would. But, for now, you’ll have to settle with me telling you about the goodness.
While it took a second for the plot to really got started, once it did, I was hooked on the book. I got to know Katherine, the main character, pretty well as she uprooted from her old life and began a new one. I could really feel all her sadness and anger for getting overlooked for a promotion AGAIN, all her stress at starting her own art gallery and new life, and her driving personality as she got to know her love interest and herself more. Katherine was a great main character, and I almost wish this was a series so I could see a little more of her.
The romance is this book was *chefs kiss* magnifique. The relationship between Katherine and Kit was cute and heartwarming, yet honest. As well, part of what made their romantic scenes so sweet was that there were other things happening besides just the romance. The whole book wasn’t just them falling in love, but also working towards things they wanted and needed in their lives.
Overall, this was a book full of great rom-com banter, honest characters, and a lovely storyline to keep you wanting more.
