I won my copy of Raising Kayne in an Author supported contest, however it was on my To Be Read List prior to my lucky win.
I was about 1/3 through the book when I decided to go online and purchase other books from Julieanne Reeves. It was actually a shock to me that this was her debut novel!
The characters were well drawn, the story compelling and the romance was excellent! I will be keeping my eyes out for more by Julieanne Reeves.
Kayne (our hero) has a tragic past and little reason to love again. Jess (our heroine) has a tragic past and little reason to love again. Throw in a chance meeting, 4 adorable children, more and more "chance" meetings, a child's mysterious disappearance, a jealous suitor, love's inevitable progression.....this novel had everything.
I laughed, I cried, I bit my nails - I was immersed in the story of Kayne and Jess. I was committed to their happy ending. I even found myself slowing down during the last few chapters to delay the ending.
I look forward to more books in the series, I highly recommend this debut, and I will be framing a copy of Kayne's Poem "With My Last Breath."
