Overview

From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes her first duo of paranormal romances!

ONCE UPON A TIME...
the most beautiful boy in the world kissed me.
I’ve never been able to forget.
Perhaps it was his jet-black hair,
or the changing copper-color of his eyes,
the intense way he looked at me...
or the fact that he awakened my passion for the first time,
at once otherworldly yet heartbreakingly real.
But after that kiss, I never saw him again.
His name was Jack Beauloup.
Jack, my “ Beautiful Wolf.”
Twenty years passed. He has returned. For me.

This was such a breathtaking, enchanting and captivating story!! I was entranced with Darcy and Jack's from the very start. I had so many feels from this book. Told in two parts from each POV, I was able to get the full emotion both characters felt from the moment they were bound to each other as well as the longing they felt for the two decades they were apart, and the happiness that engulfed them when they reunited. I've been a huge fan of Katy Regnery's work in the Contemporary Genre, as was ecstatic when I learned she'd be releasing a paranormal story. I didn't know what to expect, but I knew that with her talent at storytelling she'd be able to deliver a flawless story with unforgettable characters...that's what I got. It's You officially popped my werewolf romance cherry. I can't say enough how pleasurable this story was and we all know...you never forget your first. Darcy is sweet, kind and intelligent. Jack is mysterious and comes across a bit broody when Darcy had her high school crush on him. Though they never spoke, one kiss sealed their fate and 20 years later, with Jack's return, Darcy finds out why that kiss was so powerful for a 17-year-old girl. Now that they're adults, they share an intensity that is off the charts. This was such an amazing story with an ending that has me holding my breath for the conclusion to their story.

The blurb sucked me in. The writing kept me reading. The romance had me wanting more. The lure of waiting twenty years for the one you fell in love with to come back into your life was just too much for me to resists. I am excited to move on to book two. Just to find out how things work out for Jack Beauloup and Darcy Turner. Katy Regnery writing as K.P. Kelley has done a beautiful job creating excitement and passion within her paranormal world with this sweet romance that has been waiting for twenty years to explode. Take your time to dive in and experience the as each new layer will be added and the intensity will be turned up for you to enjoy the journey of secrets and new discoveries. Challenge yourself to step further into the paranormal romance of Jack and Darcy.

This story had me intrigued from the first page. Not having read the synopsis before reading, I had no idea what kind of journey I would be experiencing along the way. To say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. This story was breathtaking in its beauty and pain. And I loved the uniqueness of the paranormal aspects. From the small pieces of information gleaned throughout the first part shown through Darcy's POV, I was surprised by Jack's secret. In my mind I kept thinking this was going to end up being the typical shifter romance. Boy was I wrong! The author not only drew me into the story and lives of these characters, but she presented it in such vivid and explicit detail. I felt like I was seeing and feeling everything as her characters did. There was so much love, longing, and devastation. Their connection was visceral, which made their separation utterly heartbreaking. I fell apart from the pain that the knowledge of Jack's true nature brought them both. And the pain and longing Jack felt for Darcy from that moment of truth and hearing about his years without her only brought me to me knees. This is a wonderful story and first book in the paranormal romance genre by K.P. Kelley a.k.a. Katy Regnery. I loved the direction the author took with the plot. It's unusual to find a book where the human is not okay with the monsters. They give in so quickly for true love. Darcy's strength and resolve to stand her ground made their journey more believable. And reading Jack's side of the story only strengthened my belief that they belonged together. I can't wait to see what happens next! I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Readers Copy of this book.

5 Stars for It’s You I had the privilege of reading an advance copy of It’s You two years ago and provided feedback to the author. I remember feeling mesmerized by Darcy and Jack’s love story and looking at my notes I had minimal suggestions to make. With my second reading of It’s You I am still blown away with how amazing this story is. This love story is creative and stands apart from other paranormal romances I’ve read. Darcy and Jack are soulmates and their connection is passionate and like nothing I’ve seen before. I don’t want to spoil the story but I will say that their love is so deep it survives time and distance. Darcy and Jack’s bonding is a physical, emotional and mental connection. It came as no surprise that Darcy is at first frightened of how deep her feelings are for Jack. But once Jack’s secrets are revealed will their love stay strong or will they be ripped apart forever? Book 1 ends in a cliffhanger but book 2 releases on January 17,2017 with a happily ever after ending you do not want to miss! I am still amazed at how beautifully written It’s You is. With every detail I became immersed in the story. I felt the excitement and the heartache. The scenes in the woods painted a clear image and I imagined myself walking along side Darcy and Jack. I loved how the author expressed the emotions of the characters visually with the changes of the scenery and climate. I’ve said this in other reviews but Katy Regnery is one of my favorite authors. Her writing is flawless but what I love most is the risks she takes in her writing. Katy is not afraid to try new storylines. She has given us the sweet small-town romance in The Hearts of Montana series, her twist on beloved fairy tales in A Modern Fairytale collection, the rich and powerful in The Blueberry Lane series and now her debut paranormal romance. It’s You has everything I want in a paranormal romance: passion, romance, drama, intrigue and action. It’s You is a must read for all PNR fans!

It's You (Book 1) by Katy Regnery writing as K.P. Kelley 5 STARS! SO FREAKING GOOD!!!! I was so absorbed in this book the day got completely away from me! Soul mates is a super favourite story-line for me and that's what this book makes me feel.. like they are drawn to each other even if they shouldn't be or don't want to be… So intense, passionate, and just plain awesome. Both Darcy and Jack are fully developed characters and easy to like. I long to see them on the page together and when they are it's perfect! I read somewhere that the author is unsure how her first paranormal will work out… well, personally I think it's fantastic! I love how she has written half of this book from Darcy’s point of view and the remainder from Jack's. Book 1 ends with a cliffhanger and I can't wait to read book two! Thank goodness they are being released so close together!!

Favorite Quotes: … she searched his eyes. They ignited with a whoosh under her scrutiny, like a BBQ grill. In a moment they were blazing copper. ‘Jack?’ she breathed his name into the fog, and she saw the letters of his name in silver mist swirl from her mouth repeating as it dispersed, until the forest echoed softly with her name before falling silent, before the silver blended, forgotten, into the gray around her. ‘I miss you...’ She watched her words disperse and disappear again – you, you, you – until it was silent. Listen to me. I love you. With everything I am. With everything I’ll ever be… That’s all I wanted to say. That’s all I wanted you to know. No matter what happens between us, Darcy Turner… I love you forever. My Review: Picking up a paranormal book is an anomaly for me, but I am always willing to dabble in different genres when it comes to following an exceptional scribe who could make a grocery list interesting, and Katy Regnery certainly possesses that skill set. It’s You was an inventive and spellbinding tale that was maddeningly paced with alluring characters and intriguing secrets that taunted and tugged at my curiosity. I was impatient and eager to discern Jack’s mysterious past and current secrets, which were tantalizingly revealed one layer at a time. The narrative was full of unique and creative paranormal elements and unexpected twists. The protagonists shared an impossible yet fated match with an undeniable attraction that dated back to their teens, as well as a sensual chemistry that scorches the sheets. Their extraordinarily bewitching tale alternated between squeezing my cold coronary muscle and causing said muscle to pound against my ribs during their atomically hot couplings. For a rare paranormal reader, I was delightedly captivated.

“In my whole life, I have only wanted you.” It’s You is the first of a two book series by the same name written by Katy Regnery. I have read several of Katy’s Contemporary Romances in the past but this is her first venture into the world of paranormal. I have to admit I was a little skeptical at first. But I’m here to tell you that if you ever decide to read one single paranormal romance, you absolutely have to make sure it’s this one. This book is amazing! Katy Regnery has come up with a finely woven world full of legends and lore. But more importantly, it’s a story of a love binding together two people so strongly that it breaks hundreds of years of rules and tradition. Darcy Turner has spent the last twenty years dreaming of one boy, and the kiss they shared when she was just fifteen years old. It was her first kiss. But it was a kiss that changed her life. It was a kiss that touched her so deeply that no one has ever been able to affect her in the same way since. But after the kiss, he left, and she hasn’t seen him for twenty years. Until now. He came back. Jacques Beauloup, or Jack has been preparing for his return to Carlisle, New Hampshire, to Darcy, for twenty long years. He had to leave town after the kiss. He had to make sure he was ready. You see, that kiss was not just any kiss. It was a kiss that bound Jack and Darcy together forever. It is a binding that cannot be broken. Darcy was his and he was Darcy’s. She just didn’t know it yet. “She had never felt such an all-consuming burn for anyone or anything in the entirety of her life. It was like being under a spell, like a fever or an obsession.” When Jack walks back into Darcy’s life, she can’t believe it’s him. As he initiates himself back into her life, the connection is undeniable. But Darcy wants answers. Where has he been for the last twenty years? Why did he come back? Why now? And there are other things as well. Darcy is a scientist, working on her PHD in Botany. Some of the things that are happening between she and Jack, though, can’t be explained by science. They can’t be explained at all because they shouldn’t be possible. “There’s more in this world that doesn’t make sense than does. Sometimes you have to have faith.” In this first of two books, we learn the history of Jack’s world. The book is told in two parts, the first part Darcy, and the second part, Jack. So, we get inside both of their heads and learn their thoughts and reactions and histories. “He wanted her light in his life so terribly. He wanted her light He wanted her.” I was pulled in to this story on the very first page and it did not let me go until the final page. This book does have a bit of a cliff hanger ending but book two will be released about two weeks after the first book so you won’t have to wait long. And I am assured that book two brings everything to a complete conclusion. Jack’s love for Darcy is so strong, his faith in their binding so sure. I sighed, I swooned. To have a man love you so deeply, so fully. Yet there are secrets. Things that Darcy doesn’t understand. And when she learns the truth, her world is turned upside down. She is forced to accept truths that she never could have imagined. Things that science can’t explain. Is their bond strong enough? Can she accept the truth? I will be immediately going on to book two to get the answers.

Even though It’s You started off kind of slow for me I did find myself intrigued enough to read through and I’m glad that I did. At first it reads more like a contemporary book than a paranormal, but as you get about half way the paranormal picks up and that when my interest piqued fully and I couldn’t stop reading. I loved reading about the world and myths that the author created, and about the characters..which are awesome by the way! I’m seriously excited to read what is next. *I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review.

Paranormal is an acquired taste. The closest I've come to paranormal fiction is watching a Twilight movie on cable, so I was a skeptic from the very beginning about It's You. I am familiar with work by Ms. Regnery, as a contemporary author and that is why I decided to give It's You a try. That decision turned out to be one of the best ones I have made to date. The lure of the unknown, the thrill of the adventure and magic of star crossed love made a believer out of me. Jack and Darcy are an enthralling combination. The only con is that the story is a cliffhanger.
