Guest Review: To Katie with Love – Erica Lucke Dean

Posted May 18, 2013 by Shannon in Karen / 4 Comments

Banker Katie James has a serious thing for romance novels. She’d almost rather settle for a fictional boyfriend than risk her heart on a flesh-and-blood man. Besides, the only real guy she’s remotely interested in is her rich, unattainable client, the mysterious Cooper Maxwell.

Looking less like the ultra-conservative man she knows and more like a drop-dead sexy character from one of her books, Cooper crashes Katie’s 29th birthday party. But one too many drinks lands Katie in uncharted territory… Cooper’s bedroom!

Drunk on love, Katie dives headfirst into the relationship only to discover that Cooper is keeping secrets… dangerous ones. As if things couldn’t get worse, her meddling mother makes a surprise visit, digging up a whole new set of problems.

Who would have guessed having an assassin for a boyfriend would be the least of her worries?

Reviewer’s Thoughts

Imagine being out with your colleagues from work on your birthday and the man you have secretly admired for months shows up and can’t take his eyes off you. This is how we first meet Katie James, an ultra conservative banker by day and romance novel reader by night. Katie would much rather stay at home and read a book than join her co-workers for a drink.

The man of Katie’s dreams is one of her clients, Cooper Maxwell. Cooper is charming, confident, sexy and smitten with Katie. A relationship developes between them, but Katie discovers Cooper has secrets.

Katie’s mother is a constant irritant to Katie because of her continual nagging and negative remarks. Even though Katie is smart and successful, she lacks self confidence due to her mother.

Katie works with an interesting cast of characters at the bank and they are a wonderful addition to the story with their hilarious antics and quirky personalities. There is never a dull moment at the bank, including another client who is attracted to Katie. Who knew there was so much going on behind the scenes of a bank?

Cooper and Katie are likable characters with loads of sexual tension between them. This delightful contemporary romance has it all, witty dialogue, great characters and an engaging story. This is a laugh out loud book that I didn’t want to put down.

    Thanks for the review. Sounds like the secondary characters are a hoot and that the relationship with Cooper will be hot! Can’t wait to read this!!
