Meant to Be by Kathryn Shay

Ever wonder about the dangers of visiting online dating websites? Or the benefits? NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay’s contemporary romance series, RIGHTMATCH.COM, is based on the premise, “Everybody lies on these sites.” The stories show how a lie told between each couple can have devastating effects!

“Kathryn Shay is a brilliant writer. In MEANT TO BE she has created her trademark characters who could be your friends and a story line that packs a Shay wallop. A must read hit!”

In MEANT TO BE, thirty-four year old Cole Matheson gets himself entangled with Beth Montgomery, forty-five, while he’s lying to her about his age. When he finally tells her the truth, she reluctantly forgives him. But he’s unable to be completely honest with her and, eventually, Beth cannot deal with his consistent deceit. Now, sexy, adorable Cole must convince her he can be the kind of man she deserves.

A brilliant and talented man, single father Cole Matheson has always gotten what he wanted. But he stumbles when he meets a woman he wants in his life. So he lies. Twice. When Beth discovers the truth, she can’t find it in her heart to forgive him. But when tragedy strikes, she turns to Cole. Does this mean they can have a life together?

If you enjoy books about single father romance, second chance at love romance and promises broken romance, be sure to read the rest of the series: BETTER THAN BEFORE and WAITING FOR YOU.

Reader Praise for MEANT TO BE:

“This was the best book of the series. The numerous conflicts Cole and Beth had were so difficult to get through I wondered how Ms. Shay could ever make it work. I could not stop reading.”

“I laughed and cried. The characters are so real, and deep.”

“I liked this book the best of the trilogy. Something about Cole makes him my favorite character. He has his faults and is not perfect, but I loved him!”

Kathryn Shea never disappoints me, and once again this book is a hit. Whether she is writing about firefighters, or matchmakers or teacher s, her books are great in plot  and character development. As a former high school  teacher, I could relate to this Educators series fully. No matter what book I read of hers, I am never disappointed!
