When prison tutor Kat Lane met arrogant inmate Wesley Carter in A Pound of Flesh, it was hate at first sight. Carter’s quick wit and reputation for being as dangerous as he was handsome kept her at a distance. But as they grew to know each other as teacher and student in the New York prison, Kat found there was much more to Carter than she thought.
In Love and Always, Kat and Carter’s story continues as they share the news of their engagement—which doesn’t go over well with Kat’s mother. On top of it all, Carter has a new role as CEO of WCS Communications, which adds more pressure to his new life outside prison. Trying to juggle family, a billion dollar business, and Carter’s best friend Max’s rehab stint doesn’t leave much time for the happy couple to enjoy each other. How will Kat and Carter handle the pressures of marriage, family, and work—and keep the passion alive through it all?
My Quickie Review:
This is a short and sweet little novella which is all it's meant to be. It covers a few days at Christmastime and serves as a little bookmark for where Carter and Kat are in their lives as they move into their engagement. The story allows the reader to catch up with where they are in their lives and gives a little bit more insight into how difficult things are for Max in rehab, although he's never on the page.
As a fan of the first book, it's nice to see this little peek into their lives, but there's not much real substance or point to this novella. It's simply that...a tiny tidbit with a bit more of Kat and Carter for fans. And as that, it's a fun read.
The best thing about it...that beautiful cover. I love how soft and romantic it feels...very reflective of how good things finally are between Kat and Carter. I do love to see them truly happy and fulfilled together. This novella is very satisfying in that regard.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
