The Ultimate Catch - book review
The Ultimate Catch was written by Constance Phillips. This post was organized by N K Author Services. I was provided with a copy in exchange for my honest book review. All opinions are my own.
About the book:
Jolanda is willing to do whatever it takes, even face off against the Bering Sea, to raise the money for a balloon payment on her father’s house.
She challenges Keller and wins a bet to get on the recently inherited crab fishing boat, forcing the young captain to buck tradition and superstition.
Will his season be doomed or will he end up with the ultimate catch?
I loved this book for it's romance... but I loved it even more for it's story of family strength; of putting family first. I think that's what I liked the most about Jo and Keller... they're both so caught up in taking care of their families. Jo not wanting her ailing father to lose their home. Keller not wanting his family to lose their business. Their priorities make them perfect for each other... and horrible for the idea of any chance of building a romance. I love this about Constance Phillips books. The struggle of finding love while keeping and reorganizing priorities... it seems to always work in building her stories. Her characters always have such full stories.
I have to say I loved that Jo was such a bad-ass. The picture on the cover is perfectly Jolanda. Pretty, cute, petite, girly. But she wins that spot on Keller's crabbing boat and she is forces herself to be as strong and determined in a ridiculously demanding job as the 4 men she's working with. I don't think... no, I know I couldn't have handled the work that Jo was doing. I've seen some of those fishing company shows. It is hard. It really pushed home how important it was to Jo that she do whatever she could to help her dad.
About the author:
