On the Flap
After almost four years, Michael Matthews has come face to face with the love of his life. To say it didn’t go quite as he envisioned is an understatement. Never in a million years would he have imagined that his best friend, Daniel, is the new man in Kate’s life.
Once their explosive evening concludes and everyone goes their separate ways, Mike takes the time to calm down and plan his next move. If there’s one thing that calms him it’s Kate, even if it’s just memories of her. Mike has four hours before he sees her again and gets to plead his case. Instead of sleeping, he spends his evening remembering every detail of their relationship from the beginning.
Experience Mike and Kate’s love story from the start, all from Mike’s point of view. Find out why he left Kate in pieces and learn just how far he’ll go to make her fall in love with him all over again.
You will need to read Breaking Kate before you can enjoy this novella.
We met Kate, Daniel, and Mike in Breaking Kate. We also found that Michael was integral to the breaking of Kate. In this novella, we get to meet Michael from the very beginning. We start at the age of seven and move towards to present. This mini installment helps build the back story to Kate and Michael’s relationship but also to him in general. We get to see what influences guided the decisions he made regardless of if they’re good ones.
It’s interesting not only to get his perspective but to see how his personality grows and changes throughout. It seems to me he starts out as a bit of a sensitive yet somewhat spoiled child but then grows to be an independent and broken man. While in the end I still don’t care for him much, I do have a better understanding of him. In some ways I can finally empathize with him. I am curious as to how this added knowledge will add insight in the next book, Releasing Kate.

I have a large appetite for books with pensive alpha males. I tend to lean towards erotica and contemporary romance. I am completely addicted to my Kindle and feel naked when it’s not with me. If you have any recommendations, feel free to email them. I’m a single-ish woman with two crazy dogs. I also love football and basketball. Living in Oklahoma City, my teams are the Thunder and Sooners.
