  • Attitude and Spunk will get you the gold…***4.5 Stars***Katherine In Gold was a winner for me. I connected with the characters, loved the dialogue and finished it with a big smile on my face. We start off the story with Katherine looking at her life and deciding she needs to make some changes. The first and smartest decision is to kick her boyfriend to the curb. Goya is convinced he’s in love with Katherine. He’s an arrogant artist who thinks he’s better than everyone else. Unfortunately [...]


  • ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review[image error]Katherine in Gold by J.B. Hartnett was a sweet, sexy, and beautiful book that dealt with complex, flawed, and real characters who manages to capture our hearts with their past. What I loved about this book was that Ms. Hartnett showcased two people finding love and healing. For Katherine, her broken heart and the walls that she built up were slowly crumbling when she meets Holst. Holst was just perfection. He was sweet, beautifu [...]


  • 4.5 stars!Review to come on 7/9**FULL REVIEW**“One thing to know about me, Holst: when I give my word, I never go back on it. Not ever.”First, let me start by saying I love J.B. Hartnett. I have read every book she’s written and will continue to do so. Her stories hold a magic all their own, one that reminds me that love can be simple in all its complexities. They show that even though there are heavy situations, it can be light and breezy. I love her style of writing, the characters she e [...]


  • *** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***Katherine in Gold is the second in The Beachy Bride series by J.B. Hartnett. Not only was I excited when I saw it arrive on my Kindle having loved the first book I the series Bride in Bloom. But also intrigued by the warning author had added at the start the synopsis. I’m a big fan of the author, and I do love books with the hint of a possible wedding so I couldn’t wait to dive in! “It all starts with the dress. The guy [...]


  • 5 STARS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Again, I am absolutely in love with the characters thatJ.B. Hartnett writes. She manages to write complex, flawed, beautiful, real characters that I always seem to have a strong connection with. The dialogue and thought process of each character balances so well. There is always this great dynamic going on. I feel apart of their world. In addition to these wonderful characters that I have come to cherish she also writes a compelling story that keeps moving. [...]



  • So as I'm reading this book I just kept imagining the shops located next to Taco Loco on PCH and low and behold 30% in and Taco Loco gets a shout out in the book.I'll love this book for the Laguna references alone.It was a cute story but I did find that the writing style made it difficult to connect with the characters. I don't know what it was about it exactly but I just felt like things were happening but I never connected with the events. Also, there was plenty of character development but no [...]


  • This was an absolute beautiful and breathtaking romance! KATHERINE IN GOLD has to be one of my top fave romances of the year! This read gutted me in more ways than one and I couldn't be more grateful for it. These characters were amazing, the storyline was just brilliant. The female lead, Katherine, just blew me away. I related to her on so many levels. She buried herself so deep in my heart that I felt for her during tough times, cheered with her through the good, and cried with her through the [...]


  • Though I was really excited to read it, I didn’t expect to like Katherine in Gold more than I loved J. B. Hartnett’s Bride in Bloom. But wow. Just wow. I fell completely head-over-heels in love with. Katherine in Gold. This is a book that I will pick up and read over and over and over again, just because.When I read, I love the idea of suspending my disbelief and being lost in the story and falling in love with not only the characters, the words on the page and the idea that this world they [...]

  • I received an ARC of this book from TRSOR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's blog tour promotions.Nobody stays golden throughout their lives. At some point, we get broken,become marred with mistakes that we make along the way. However, there is always a way to move past what happened and let the past stay where it should be. At some point, a person gets himself into a mess. But we can move on to other more beautiful things.This is what Katherine in Gold was mostly about. [...]


  • As a teacher, I thought I knew a lot of words that have multiple meanings but, after reading Katherine in Gold, I have now added two new words to that list – “dude” and “whore”. So not only has J. B. Hartnett entertained me with her writing, she’s also educated me!Seriously though, Katherine in Gold is literally worth its weight in gold. It’s one of those books that makes you smile and laugh; it makes you sigh in contentment; it makes you angry and it simply makes you feel good.Thi [...]


  • Almost perfect!There's nothing I didn't love about this book and the characters. If I could change one thing,it would be to expound on what happened to Kath in her youth. A glimpse into the "grooming" she endured, just so the confrontation that takes placement so instant. Highly recommend this book, as well as the other one in this series.


  • *******received early ARC******can i just start by saying how much i loved this story? Katherine, such a tortured soul, but i love seeing the "old" faces back in the fold, beautifully written & once again J.B AMAZING writing!!!


  • "It all started with a dress."That statement is the basic theme for the Beachy Bride series, but the stories are about so much more than the pieces of fabric and lace that provide the inspiration for the journeys.Katherine, or Kath, is Tori's best friend who was introduced in Bride in Bloom. She is a bit of a free spirit, but her demeanor is a well built facade to hide a painful past that not even her bestie is privy to. When she meets Holst, that facade starts cracking immediately. He reminds h [...]


  • 4.5 Fantastic stars b Jen SkewesKatherine in Gold is the second installment in The Beachy Bride series but can be read as a stand alone. I loved this book and I think this just may be my favorite JB Hartnett book. I love the stories that she tells and the characters that she creates. This is Katherine’s story, who we first met in Bride in Bloom. Katherine is a strong, independent and feisty woman. But underneath that exterior is a woman who is broken. She was hurt so badly 13 years ago by some [...]


  • ** ARC provided by the author via TRSOR Promotions for an honest review.**This story was golden!I am definitely in love with J.B. Hartnett's writing.For all the hopeless romantics with dirty minds, Katherine and Holst's story is worth its weight in gold!Just stunning. Next book please?Review to come!***********************************************************I loved EVERYTHING in this story! J.B. Hartnett did it again. I am definitely in love with her writing style! I fell in love all over again [...]


  • I received an ARC of this book and I loved it so much I had to review this book! Will post also to on July 9th, when it publishes. Katherine in Gold by J.B. Hartnett is the first book I have read by this author, and it will not be the last-quite simply I loved it! There is a lot of swearing but that is all part of the charm of the character Katherine. If you are offended by this or by an inappropriate relationship with an older man who breaks her heart, this book is not for you. But that being [...]


  • For my friends: Bitch, just go read this book before I have to hurt you. Seriously Dude, just do it.For everyone else: Katherine in Gold is the second in the Beachy Brides series – that focuses on a group of friends living in the laid-back beach town of Laguna, California. Katherine is a tough-talking, independent woman who isn’t afraid to live her life by her own terms. She’s written off marriage, kids, the whole shebang. There’s only one thing she wants more than anything…Katherine h [...]


  • Shel: As you may know, we read both books in this series back to back and they compliment each other really well. As companion novels, they feature the same characters, with a focus on a new couple, and the beauty of that is getting more intel on the characters you met in the previous book, right? RIGHT!! Plus, if you haven't read book 1, it's okay because you'll get the details you'll need to know early on in the book. Court: Exactly! Which is why companion series are my absolute favorite. Our [...]


  • It all starts with a dress. Katherine in Gold is another wonderful book by JB Hartnett. I am loving this series so much I barely have words to describe my love. These characters are so funny, broken, loving, sexy, smart, sassy, crude and just awesome. JB Hartnett writing is flawless and she has this unique way of combining humor, angst, sex and love that makes is the perfect combination. I haven't laughed this much since Bride in Bloom. Somehow these two books have come to me at the perfect time [...]


  • Okay, first of all, if you’ve never read anything by J.B. Hartnett you need to understand something. She’s not your typical romance writer where the characters have mild anger towards a past boyfriend/girlfriend and that’s their “trouble.” Her characters have often come into contact with the worst humanity has to offer but come out stronger through the ordeal. It lends a complexity and depth to her books that are hard to find. I’m truly a fan because the way her characters are makes [...]


  • Now I know that the blurb has a warning about an inappropriate relationship but don't let that deter you. It shapes how Katherine goes about her relationships however, there really isn't a lot of detail about what happened. The relationship that Katherine had with that man impacted her more in her lack of faith in happy endings. She always believed them to be for other people but not for herself.Here in the story, Katherine wants to open a cafe but knows that she needs help. Enter Holst. A hot m [...]


  • WOW is this book sexy.I must admit that I did not read Bride in Bloom were you first meet Katherin, but I didn’t feel at any time reading this book that you needed to read it.I love Katherine, she is that type of character that say’s it how it is, no holds barred, she is not afraid to let someone know how she feels about them. Katherine meets Holst but instead of pretending that she doesn’t like him to make him chase her more, she is open and lets him know that she is attracted to him and [...]


  • 5 Battle StarsARC received from J.B. Hartnett for an honest reviewReview also posted on Mara's BookshelfHolst Rutherford, Katherine Symes, and their sarcasm-filled-cold-shower-needed story are yet another reason why I love this author's books. It's never boring and with each book in this series, the characters get more witty, emotional, and sexy. Katherine in Gold is a sweet story about Holst and Katherine fighting each of their battles until the extremely determined Holst convinced Kath that he [...]


  • Favorite Quotes:“Probably for the first time ever, just the thought of you makes my heart beat faster, Katherine.”“I had this top-of-the-line force field built around me… and you got through. I mean, I’m kinda bummed in a way, because I worked really hard on that thing.”“I fear the road ahead will be rocky for the two of you, but a straight road to anywhere isn’t very interesting.”“For me, my Katherine, it was your heart. The day in the bridal shop, standing in that dress… [...]


  • mysecretromancebookreviewsFirst and foremost, go back up and rea the warning at the top. Go ahead I will give you a few minutes to scroll back up and read it. Now, if you read it do you see one of the reasons why I had to sign up and read the book? Hello copious swearing! Now by now if you have read my reviews you know me and swear words go hand in hand so after reading that warning did you even have any doubt that I would love Katherine In Gold?Okay this is going to hopefully be short and sweet [...]

  • When I started this book I didn't realize it was a part of a series. I was suspicious because, although the focus was on Katherine, her circle of friends make quite a few appearances and one of them, Tori, was recently married. I suspected she was the focus of another book. The story also sets up stories for the remaining single friends in the group. And they all start with the dress. Since this is the first in the series I have read, I can into the story not having any connections to the charac [...]


  • Another great book by J.B Hartnett! I love how her stories draw you in and the characters are so relatable. I really like how I can imagine hanging out with them. Katherine begins her journey by questioning whether or not to embark on a new business venture. And this new business venture happens to have one heck a hunk named Holst! Both have demons they need to face and eventually find one another to lean on.Katherine is a strong character that doesn’t want to have relationships with the men i [...]
