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.
Don’t miss out on It’s You, book 2
Release date: January 17th
Oh my gosh…you guys. What a way to start off 2017! This is the first of Katy Regnery’s new paranormal duo, and she’s writing under K.P. Kelley. The second book, which is the conclusion, releases January 17th. (Bless her heart a million times over for not making us wait for the conclusion!)
I think someone could have robbed my house while I was reading this book and I never would have noticed. I was enraptured with Darcy, Jack, their history and all the mysteries in Jack’s world. This story is woven together so beautifully. I believe it takes a real talent to make aspects of your story come together and this author does that in spades. Yes, we know there are mysterious aspects, but the love in this book is indescribable.
One of my favorite parts of this book was the vivid imagery. Near the beginning, we see Darcy and Jack at a high school play. I felt like I was right there with Darcy. Then as time passes, Darcy and Jack meet again at a wedding. One part that actually made me chuckle a bit was that Darcy is a bridesmaid in this wedding and has a horrific bridesmaid dress. The descriptions of the material, the colors, and the discomfort of it helped me feel like I was right there.
Some might not consider this a big thing, but it was significant to me. When we meet Darcy, we realize that she isn’t treated the best by her extended family. Not totally horrible, but its that judgement about Darcy being 35 years old and unmarried. At another point, we hear Darcy have an internal monologue about being a size ten. The reason I appreciated this as a reader was that Darcy could be any one of us reading the story. I felt like of all the stories I’ve read, Darcy felt like a real woman to me.
I would recommend this book a million times over. I loved it, and I am dying to read the conclusion to Jack and Darcy’s story.
