Project Kaitlyn Blurb
Meet Kaitlyn Colby, a clumsy, inappropriate blurter with self-esteem issues, but also quite handy with an axe. She’s certainly no superhero, but she fights the battles of a single mom with sweet snarkasm. Between work and pining for and co-parenting with her man-child ex (is there any other kind?), Kaitlyn has no time to find that special someone. And if she did, would he really want her anyway? Kaitlyn’s sister and friends (The Sweet Water Circle) say yes, so following a typical Kaitlyn slip up, The Circle intervenes to force her out of the funk that she fell into following her unwanted divorce.
When Kaitlyn makes a decision to pursue her advertising career over love, she tumbles (like no tumble you’ve ever seen…or heard) into the life of hunky, bay breeze-drinking Hunter Dixon, an ad exec who is intrigued enough by Kaitlyn that he hires her firm to revive a struggling project, much like herself.
Can Kaitlyn become the woman she needs to be to land the man of her dreams? Maybe. Maybe not. But you’ll laugh out loud as she tries. There’s no doubt you’ll be rooting for the lovable, hilarious, and relatable Kaitlyn. And you’ll probably love her friends, too, which is good, because their stories are ready to be told in the Sweet Water Circle series!
Project Kaitlyn could be the funniest book you ever read. It’s a hilarious romantic comedy that speaks the truth (well, most of the time) about life and love, and…hiking thongs? What the heck is that? Well, you’ll just have to read it to find out!Provided by Rachel’s Random Resources for Tour Use
Grayson Avery made me laugh so hard with Project Kaitlyn that I scared my cats and garnered many an eye roll from my daughter. But seriously, when you look at the genre labeled Romantic Comedy, you will laugh until the tears roll.
I admit to being wary when I picked up this novel. I picked up a book recently labeled romantic comedy that was nothing but profane sex. It was not my idea of great comedy. But Project Kaitlyn has it all. I have never laughed so hard in all my life.
It wasn’t just funny, though. Kait’s humor is sassy and well-controlled. Hunter’s idea of funny is intelligent and a little crude. Though, I must say that I cried a fair bit while reading too. The words come together in perfect harmony of hope, laughter, and tears. I had no problem imagining this book as a movie with Jennifer Garner as the lead.
I didn’t care for the portrayal of Sasha. Her character is your typical foil, but the depiction of her comes across as sexist. She is no more than a bitch with big boobs, and I didn’t like that she had no substance apart from those characteristics.
That said, I still enjoyed the book, and I give it 4 out of 5 stars. If you are in for a laugh, you should pick up a copy of Project Kaitlyn.
