Curve Ball by Angelica Kate is a fresh summer read by an up and coming author of light inspirational romance Although I thought there was less inspiration than in many novels of this genre such as the the Love Inspired series her characters were interesting and well developed than many of those shorter novels I laughed out loud at the antics of the Polish nanny and felt like I was one of the crowd at the dinner table at Trent's family gatherings The focus of Kate's books seems to be showing how characters resolve a contemporary societal issue such as foster case abuse death of a parents etc Even though the story was predictable I found myself rooting for Cassie her 6 adopted children and Trent as they beat the odds to create a better future After a long day of work there is nothing wrong with reading a book with a happy ending And the subtle reminder of God's presence is welcome too I will look for books by this author and I'd love to see her write for the middle and high school crowd I think her insight and style as she addresses modern problems would be well received and enjoyed by the next generation of romance readers too The only thing I'd change are some spelling errors like Belle princess being spelled Bell and a few other typos In exchange for an honest review I received this book through First Reads I won this book in a Goodreads First Reads giveaway Thanks Angelica Kate for the chance to read itIf you look at the most basic storyline this story is pretty generic Two people meet and rub each other the wrong way As time goes on and they see of each other they both begin to realize an attraction Of course neither of them will admit it The story goes on from there I don't want to give too much away The story is short and sweet I love Cassie as a character Growing up without a family in the system and then inheriting a family she always yearned for as a child after her sister passes away sad but neat I also liked that of the six children she inherited five of them also came from the system Although I expected it to end the way it did I will admit I got a little emotional teared up just a little The ending is super sweet and I would have been bummed had it gone any other wayIt's a good read More of a novella as it's very short Light with occasional cutesy humor Glad it's part of my collection I read this on a trip to Tulsa Oklahoma since it was the author's home state A simple and easy read nothing too deep Probably not a book that will stick with me in any way The characters were likeable but not extremely developed The romance was all G or PG rated so good for readers who prefer modesty A strong female character who perseveres and defies the odds I received Curve Ball free as a First Reads Giveaway I thoroughly enjoyed this story Cassie is a busy woman Trent is the man on her next work project Cassie is busy raising her sister's 6 kids and Trent is busy running from commitment This book is about the two of them learning to come together and seeing if they can make it as one big happy family This is a definite must read I absolutely loved itThis was such a sweet story I couldn't put it down until I reached the end All the characters made the story come alive FTC disclosure I received this book free from Goodreads hoping I would review it Touching uick read I love the character of Cassie ValentineCassie has had a rough life especially when her sister died Cassie took over the care of her sister's 5 adopted children and one biological daughter who was born the same night her sister died Cassie decides the children are enough family for her and wants to avoid dating Then she meets Trent Thomson and things change The author did a great job with this story and readers are going to love her for doing that This was really a cute little story All the characters were likeable and things progressed in a normal charming manner I will say though there were uite a few formatting issues with words out of place This doesn't bother me but I know it can be a deal breaker for some CuteCute story but has uite a few grammatical errors and typos Very abrupt ending The kids were very cute Thanks
