Readers everywhere will revel in this sharp-witted, well-meaning whirlwind in author Dina Silver's hilarious new novel, Kat Fight. In her quest for love, Kat makes every wrong turn, juggling two men, one best friend, and her own deeply confused heart's desires.
Kat Porter is a consummate romantic, eager for her chance to find love and commitment. But after her boyfriend of four years, Marc, begins to grow apathetic and sends her calls straight to voicemail one too many times, Kat finally musters the courage to confront her so-called sweetheart, who seems more interested in dodging her than courting her. Though she's no fan of ultimatums, Kat is at the end of her considerable wits, and lobs a massive one his way, completely confident that he'll make the right decision when faced with losing her. He doesn't.
With radio silence from Marc, Kat's lifelong dream of finding a husband and forging a family is decidedly on the skids. That's when her childhood friend Julie steps in, forcing Kat on a blind date to help her move beyond the break-up. Not only does Kat botch the setup, she instead finds herself in hot pursuit of Julie's love interest, Ryan Sullivan. A man who, in addition to literally taking her breath away, is the living, breathing personification of everything Kat wants in a husband.
Can Kat connect with the man of her dreams without hurting two of the people she cares most about? At the same time, she must also contend with the quips of her beloved catty coworker Adam, her bi-polar boss Brooke, and a string of comic, unpredictable plot twists. All the while, Kat's cheeky perspective and generous heart will leave readers adoring every moment of her journey while chuckling and cheering for the ever cute, razor-sharp Kat as she fights to land the love of a lifetime.
There are so many times that I have picked up a book and just not been into it and not because it wasn’t a good book, because it was, but it was maybe because that wasn’t exactly what I was looking for at that particular moment… That was NOT the case with Kat Fight! I seriously could not have read Kat Fight at a better time. I had just had surgery, had spent a few extra days in the hospital from complications of said surgery, and was feeling blah during recovery because it felt like my abdominal muscles were going to explode every time I tried to sit up. Needless to say Kat Fight put me in one heck of a good mood and in a way helped strengthen said sore abs because of the constant laughing! I mean seriously when I read the scene with the Blind Date.. I laughed so freaking hard I about pee’d my pants.
Kat was one of those characters that you love but at times kind of want to smack and then hug. Life seemed to be a struggle for her even though she tried so hard to make it right. One thing I would have loved to have said to her in the beginning when she came to the realization that a certain… we’ll call it “thing”… wasn’t working out is – “Girl, don’t sell yourself short!” Cause that’s what the poor girl did for a good portion of the beginning of the book! She was adorable, funny, lovable, and compassionate! She is someone I could see myself totally being friends with.
Then there is Ryan… and Ryan is… well he’s everything a girl could hope for in a guy! He’s sweet, caring, kind, hot, and he can cook! He sees Kat for who she is and he knows that she is it for him; so he makes an effort to be a part of her life. And he goes about it all in the sweetest way… by not rushing anything because of a potential problem that could stop their relationship before it ever even got started.
Watching Kat and Ryan fall in love while Kat is in the process of figuring out her life and what exactly she wants out of it was… interesting. There is tons of sarcastic banter back and forth between Kat and Ryan… actually there is tons of sarcastic banter between Kat and just about every character.
Kat Fight was a hilarious, well written, and an extremely engaging read! This is one that will go down on my “Need a good laugh” Read List!!! Check it out!
