A fun, fast moving, sexy, (yes there are hot sex scenes) contemporary romance. I would say it may also fall into the New Adult genre as the main character is a grad student who falls for her business school mentor (who was also her first love back in high school).

A fun, fast moving, sexy, (yes there are hot sex scenes) contemporary romance. I would say it may also fall into the New Adult genre as the main character is a grad student who falls for her business school mentor (who was also her first love back in high school).
Fans of Kristan Higgins and Bella Andre will enjoy the light, humorous (but not comic) and go-getter lead character Kat.  Traditional romance lovers will savor the forbidden romance between an older man/mentor and his protege. At it's heart, Caught Up In Us examines what it is like when one comes face to face unexpectedly with the man who broke your heart. Kat's no fool, but she can't help but waiver under the thoughtfulness and tenderness of Bryan. As her semester continues and she tries to balance, school, job and family obligations, she gets Caught Up in Bryan and readers will get deliciously caught up in Caught Up In Us.
I really enjoyed this novel, it made me laugh, smile and the sex scenes made me blush (which is not easy to do).

Disclaimer - this review is based on an advanced reader copy provided by the author, whom I know professionally. But I would not be leaving any review if I didn't truly enjoy every minute I spent reading this lovely debut form Lauren Blakely.

So, so

I love romance books and can read and enjoy all types. But this one just did not get me excited at all. It was too predictable and lacked a solid story line. Much of the book was filled with descriptions of what she wanted him to do to him (sexually) and then they moved...
I love romance books and can read and enjoy all types. But this one just did not get me excited at all. It was too predictable and lacked a solid story line. Much of the book was filled with descriptions of what she wanted him to do to him (sexually) and then they moved on to phone sex, which honestly was framed by boring dialogs. The rest of the story related to their professional interactions, which were cold and detached so as not to raise red flags. There was a happy ending but without proper character and story development it was flat. There are better romance book out there that are worth their $$. This one is not one of them.

    2.5 rate. First time read for L. Blakely. Book had potential but not enough hold or mystery or 'matza' to the story. I actually put the book down and did laundry.... I also skipped a lot of the her past memories reads which at the end was a let down on why Bryan left her.... Really!!! It should have been a juicier reason... Waste of my $2.99.

    Who are these reviewers leaving glowing reviews? All these books have Four or more stars when they clearly not worth that
