I truly have a love/ hate relationship with this book. There were times I was in tears and times where I was so mad I wanted to scream. But I loved it all. I am in a major book hangover and I want to see whats going to happen in Loving Kate the 3rd book in this series that is coming out in March 2015.  I am so connected to these characters. I want Kate to be happy and I need to find out if she gets the guy she loves and what happens next with Kate, Mike and Daniel and the rest of their gang of friends. 
 
Its a great book that makes you feel a lot of emotions all at once that can drive anyone crazy. But who doesn’t love a book that you can’t fall in love with the characters that they feel real and have the reader feeling all kinds of emotions.  Its an emotional roller coaster of a book.
