Like but annoyed
I like the book series, but this book#3 is annoying. Why do many authors write the woman as a stupid, irrational person, and not owning up to her own decisions. Seriously? Letting her go? Was the character drunk to not remember that he asked, pleaded, and begged for her not to leave? But overall, I enjoy the story and the humor.

This is not a book. This is Part 3 of 1 book.
And so it ends. Okay, honestly, if you have the Romance package, it's worth a read, just because Penny Reid is a lovely author. And this one is a good 7 hours so I see why there was division but 2 at most - not 3. Her writing produces gems ("Barnacles!") in this book quite often and while I did actively eyeroll throughout the story I also laughed. Or at least gave a grudging smirk. Hah.
My last two reviews were not as nice because, well, like the titles say, this is not a whole book. Both of the first two ended at the cliffiest of cliffhangers and I expect better from my Winston Brothers author. However, it's a decent new adult book.
That said, it's kindof a watered down 50 Shades. Capture seems an apt title since it seems Kaitlyn has become emotionally ensnared. Martin gets to throw his wealth around in this book (literally he - spoilers - buys her a piano and has it set up in his apartment) but the distance between these two becomes a gaping hole. I still have no idea why she's with him, even with his past revealed.
As far as the protagonist goes, Kaitlyn does kindof learn to walk a little more steadily on her own two feet, even if it's in a bumbling way. Her rejection of her parents money and her move into music leads her down a more solid path of discovery. And there's Martin, still obsessing over her. I suppose my frustration comes from the missed opportunity to show character growth - Martin could become less douchey and Kaitlyn could hold her own and become a 50/50 power couple. That's not quite what happens. But they get a HEA so... yay?
If this is your first Penny Reid book PLEASE head over to her Knitting in the City series. It's a delight and will lead you to the wonderful Winston Brothers series. Alllll the Reid books you could ever want.
