Written by Kristen Beairsto

Genre: Romance

Book Synopsis

Most women would probably be offended at being mistaken for a stripper, but Kit Conner finds the situation rather comical. But despite Kit’s outward appearance of being able to handle just about anything, few are aware of the dark secrets Kit harbors and the demons she hides by cloaking herself in a wall of crazy antics and an outrageous fashion sense. As she returns to her hometown to play the role of maid of honor for her best friend’s wedding, Kit’s determined to hold on to those she holds dear for as long as she can. The only thing standing in her way is the absurd attraction she feels for Benjamin Mathews.

Benjamin Mathews is a guy who appreciates things to be slow, steady, and safe. Ben knows many consider him to be boring, but he’s happy with his life and loves the horse ranch he runs with his brother. The only thing he worries about is surviving the planning of his brother’s wedding.

With a wedding between Kit’s best friend and Ben’s younger brother fraying the nerves of everyone involved, Kit’s return home brings out her dark secrets into the light. The emotional overload starts to weigh on Kit and she begins to see Ben as an anchor. As their relationship intensifies, Kit struggles to believe they might actually have a future and soon finds herself fighting for the love she never thought possible.

Shirley Ford's Review

I always give honest reviews. The story is of Kit, a successful writer who returns to her hometown for one friend’s wedding and several weeks later to be maid of honor at her best friend Anne’s wedding. Anne tells Ben, her brother-in-law to be, that he is expected to dance with Kit, but even though they met years ago, he cannot remember her. Kit on the other hand remembers him well. She has been in love with him since she was a shy teenager, but he never seemed to notice her.

Kit’s difficult upbringing by an uncaring mother who told her she wasn’t wanted, has led her to believe that no-one will ever love her. Even though her Aunt Mae took her into her home and her heart, she still feels unlovable. This turns Kit into a loud, noisy character hiding behind outrageous clothes, and getting into scrapes. She thinks it is what everyone expects of Krazy Kit Conner.

The rest of the story is about Kit and Ben’s feelings for one another. First one then the other makes a move, only to be rebuffed by the other. Their childish antics made me want to bang their heads together on occasions, which has its good side; I obviously got caught up in the characters. All turns out well in the end, which is a foregone conclusion. It is a light-hearted easy read. I think the book could do with another read through by the author, as there are a few words missing and some spelling mistakes, which interrupt the flow in places. But overall, I enjoyed it.
