Kate has been through more than her share of tragedies in her life. After suffering the loss of her mother, daughter, and the love of her life, sheâs finally found the strength to open herself up to love again. For once, everything is finally as it should be. Kate shouldâve known that things were too good to be true; her life doesnât work that smoothly.
Itâs been four years since Michael left Kate, but heâs back now, and determined to win Kateâs heart once again. After discovering that Daniel and Michael are best friends, the situation spirals out of control quickly. Instead of dealing with her broken heart, Kate ignores it.
When Kateâs actions drive her to do the unthinkable, she knows sheâs crossed the line. Unfortunately, she doesnât realize it until itâs too little, too late. Her actions have consequences and now sheâs trying to fix the unfixable. Can the men in Kateâs life grant her the forgiveness she canât even find within herself?
I try and push away from him but he presses me up against the wall with force. Not a harmful force, itâs an erotic force, and I wish it didnât turn me on so much.
The glimmer I see in his eyes is new, and I have no clue what it means, but he looks ready for a challenge. Whatever the look is, itâs hot and itâs taking all my self-control not to throw my arms around his neck and wrap my legs around his waist for a repeat of what we did last time he had me up against this wall.
âThis is going to be a fight, Kate, our first, but most definitely not our last. I fight for what's mine. And you, baby,you're mine. You have been from the minute your eager lips pressed against mine and you granted me access into that fucking perfect little mouth of yours. So go ahead and be the good girl, play the martyr. Eventually, you'll figure out Mike comes in second but I'll always be first. You want to pretend this is about us all staying friends? Go ahead. All this really is about is you not being able to hurt him, even though that's exactly what he did to you. So if you really want to play this way, then GAME ON. I won't be easy on you and I'm going to love watching you try to resist what you crave and what you craveis me. Come on, baby. Tell me you aren't wet right fucking now, Kate. Tell me you aren't thinking about my cock being buried so deep inside you that youâll forget exactly why you're fighting us. I know just from the way your breath is hitching all you want right now is me. This is going to be so much fun, baby. Iâve always thought a challenge makes the end result even sweeter soâ¦ GAME FUCKING ON.âIâve forgotten how to breathe. That was the hottest thing Iâve ever heard. He told me from the beginning he fights for what he wants. Iâve only seen Danielâs sweet side, his romantic side, his wooing side. Iâve never seen his possessive side, his alpha side, well, never outside of the bedroom.

About the Author
I'm a wife, a mom and a dog lover. I'm also a taxi, problem fixer, extreme multi-tasker and my kids biggest fan in anything that they do. I love to write, so when my career suddenly derailed I turned back to my love of writing. I married my high school sweetheart... how cool is that? Margaritas and sarcasm make me happy. Chocolate makes that happiness grow exponentially. People who make me laugh are my favorite kind of people. I believe Karma is a bitch who slaps back hard and that mean people suck. I'm California born and raised, I love the beach but hate the sand. The Acceptance Series is my first series with more books to come soon.
Review by Brittany
Here I am, a few days after reading this. I usually write my reviews the same day or the day after I finish, but I needed some extra time. I got very emotional about this book and I needed time to cool down and make sure I wasnât angry enough to include spoilers.
If you havenât read the first book (Breaking Kate) Iâd advise you to read that review before you read this.
In Breaking Kate, we get to follow the journey of Kate, who is still trying to get over the loss of her first real relationship. She had dated Michael, or Mike, for years. They had known each other since they were seven. One night, an accident occurred that Mike blamed Kate for, and he left her and never spoke to her again.
Kate continues on to college, and after much pressuring from her roommate and best friend, she goes to a party and meets this guy, Daniel. Daniel and Kate have an instant connection and quickly jump into a relationship. Theyâre perfect together.
Then, at the end of Breaking Kate, Mike comes back. Little did anyone know, that they were all mutual friends with each other. As you would think, this complicates things.
Kate is put in a tough spot and is forced to choose. Does she choose Mike, who she shares much more than a history with, or Daniel, the man she wants to build a history with?
This bookâ¦ Oh, this book. I was filled with suspense and anxiety the whole time I read it. I wonât tell you what team Iâm on, because I donât want to spoil anything. But one minute Iâm happy and the next minute Iâm cursing at the book. Kate made some poor decisions, one really bad one, and that might have just screwed everything up. She might have lost them bothâ¦
So, we finally find out who she choosesâ¦ and then we find out something that could change all of thatâ¦ well, thereâs two things that could change it. When I find out who she chose, I was all over the place. But then thereâs that little, well, big piece of information and I was pissed.
Okay, let me back up. I found out who she chose. And I had tears running down my face. I was so upset. Then I find out that new bit of information, and I was pissed. So angry. I slammed my kindle closed and threw it on the bed, immediately messaging Dee and telling her how mad I was. She convinced me with a winky face to keep going, and I did, and while Iâm not happy with the ending, I did get some comfort in the fact, but I canât wait for the next book!
I think she did an amazing job keeping the secret of who she was going to choose throughout the whole book. I know that is really hard to do, and I was never sure of who sheâd pick, and thatâs something that really kept me reading.
Five stars for Releasing Kate. Now, Dee, go write and finish book 3!!!
