Blog Tour: Review of Loving Cara by Kristen Proby

In this new Love Under the Big Sky series from a USA TODAY bestselling author, Cara agrees to tutor her former classmate's nephew—and learns some lessons in love!

Josh King is an expert at running his family’s multi-million dollar ranch in Montana. (And all that outside manual labor has done wonders for sculpting his six-foot-three body, too.) But as sure footed as he is when it comes to the ranch, Josh doesn’t know anything about how to deal with an adolescent boy—so when his twelve-year-old nephew, Seth, is dropped off on his doorstep, looking scared and acting surly as hell, Josh knows he needs help in straightening him out.

Cara Donovan loves her quiet life as a teacher in her sleepy hometown, so she jumps at the chance to make a little money over the summer as a tutor. But when she learns she’ll be teaching Josh King’s nephew, Cara’s sweet summer job gets a little bit hotter. Cara tries to focus all her attention on tutoring Seth, but Josh proves to be a delicious distraction, while Josh’s memories of the shy girl he once teased in high school are nothing like the beautiful woman he’s facing now. Can he persuade her that there’s more between them than a summer fling?

Elle says...

Loving Cara is the first book in the Love Under the Big Sky Series and another stellar read from Kristen Proby. Based in Montana, this story follows Cara Donovan and Josh King. Cara is a teacher that begins tutoring the nephew of her long time crush, Josh. Sparks fly and chemistry ignites between the pair as their professional relationship turns personal.

Cara truly thrives in an environment where she can help people. She’s generous, kind, and loyal. Her character is drastically different from Josh. Like Cara he is kind and loyal, but there is also a side of Josh that demands respect and control. He is fiercely protective of the people he loves and won’t let anyone cause them harm. Most importantly I have to point out Josh is a twin and a god in the bedroom. Ladies let the swooning commence.

Fans of Kristen Proby’s books will be pleased with her latest release. Once again she has delivered a heartwarming novel with just the right amount of drama and plenty of steamy romance. I’ve been reading a lot of emotionally heavy books lately, and this story was the perfect anecdote to soothe my nerves. I was drawn into the characters and the beauty of Montana, wishing I could travel there and spend a weekend in this book. I’ve fallen in love with Josh and Cara and can’t wait for the next book in this series.

Cara Donovan has had a crush on Josh King since they were kids.  Now Cara loves being a teacher and helping students.  When she is offered a tutoring job for the summer she jumps at the chance to do what she loves and make a little bit of extra money on the side.  What she doesn't know is that she will be teaching Josh's nephew.  While she tries to concentrate on teaching Seth she can't help but admire the man that Josh has become and all that he has to offer.

Cara is a sweet woman.  She is a good teacher who really tries to help Seth even though he treats her with disrespect at every turn.  The attraction between Cara and Josh practically jumps off the page.

Josh is a family man.  His family and his ranch are his life until he reconnects with Cara.  It was great to see how he introduces her to his life and how seamlessly they fit together.  They had such great chemistry and passion.

One of the things I really love about Kristen Proby is that with each series she manages to create a family of characters that you connect with.  She draws you into the town and the people.  You want to learn about each character and how they fall in love.  Loving Cara is no different.  I left this book wanting more... and the next two couples are already in motion!  I can't wait to read Lauren and Jillian's books!

"Dear God, I'd give anything to wake up to this smile for the rest of my life, and that thought is more than a little unnerving."

4 Stars for Loving Cara by Kristen Proby!

Kristen is the author of the Amazon and USA Today bestselling With Me In Seattle series. She has a passion for a good love story and strong characters who love humor and have a strong sense of loyalty and family. Her men are the alpha type; fiercely protective and a bit bossy, and her ladies are fun, strong, and not afraid to stand up for themselves.

Kristen spends her days with her muse in the Pacific Northwest. She enjoys coffee, chocolate and sunshine. And naps.
