Release Day Launch + Giveaway! "Loving Cara" by Kristen Proby

Author: Kristen Proby
Series: Love Under the Big Sky, #1
~ SYNOPSIS ~In this new Love Under the Big Sky series from a USA TODAY bestselling author, Cara agrees to tutor her former classmate's nephew—and learns some lessons in love!

Josh King is an expert at running his family’s multi-million dollar ranch in Montana. (And all that outside manual labor has done wonders for sculpting his six-foot-three body, too.) But as sure footed as he is when it comes to the ranch, Josh doesn’t know anything about how to deal with an adolescent boy—so when his twelve-year-old nephew, Seth, is dropped off on his doorstep, looking scared and acting surly as hell, Josh knows he needs help in straightening him out.

Cara Donovan loves her quiet life as a teacher in her sleepy hometown, so she jumps at the chance to make a little money over the summer as a tutor. But when she learns she’ll be teaching Josh King’s nephew, Cara’s sweet summer job gets a little bit hotter. Cara tries to focus all her attention on tutoring Seth, but Josh proves to be a delicious distraction, while Josh’s memories of the shy girl he once teased in high school are nothing like the beautiful woman he’s facing now. Can he persuade her that there’s more between them than a summer fling?

5 Stars!

Oh my word! Kristen Proby has done it again! Another phenomenal, must read book!!!!! Ahhh!!! Such a great start to what I know will be a fantastic series!! Super excited person here!!! *raises hand!* HUGE fan of Kristen Proby! HUUUUUUUUUUUGE! =)

“I love you, Carolina Donovan, more than I ever thought possible.”

When Cara accepted her summer job, she never imagined just how much her life would change. Sure, she always thought Josh King was hot, but that was it. They would see each other around town and they’d wave a polite ‘hello’ here and there, but there really wasn’t anything to it. So really, this was just a tutoring job. Nothing more, nothing less.


Josh King used to tease Cara (in a silly way) in high school. So he really didn’t think it would be a big deal to have her tutor his nephew, Seth, for the summer. He saw her around town, but it wasn’t until she showed up at his door, that he really noticed her. 

“Your eyes are amazing, Cara.”
“They’re kind of weird,” I whisper.
“No, they’re not weird.” He shakes his head slowly. “I’ve just never seen eyes that go from amber to hazel to green. I wonder what color they are when you’re turned on?”

How long can two people hold off from what was clearly inevitable? Cara tried to keep her relationship with Josh professional. He was not only her boss – sort of, but she had to think about Seth and how her situation with Josh would affect him. For that, I couldn’t really blame her. I mean, poor Seth!!! No kid should ever have to endure what he did, especially at that age! I seriously wanted to hug and console him and tell him everything will be okay. Sigh. My heart broke for Seth...

Well anyway, when Josh wants something, he goes for it, and he wanted Cara. Their relationship was sweet and oh so passionate. Gosh!!!! Josh was swoon-worthy for sure. He 100% fits what I call the ‘Kristen Proby Men’ type. You know, the romantic with a very yummy alpha side, type of guy! The kind that is simply put, a panty-dropper!!!!!!!! The kind that melts your heart!!! *fans self* Should I go on??? *giggles* Oh, and I’m SURE Ty and Zach are just as yummy!!!!!!!!! Squueeeee!! I seriously can’t wait to see this series unfold. I really loved all the characters. They were so down to earth, witty, and easy to relate to.

The story line in Loving Cara was hands down fantastic and Kristen Proby’s writing style was amazing as usual. The book flowed smoothly and naturally, and I fully connected with it. I swooned, squirmed, and fell in love right alongside Cara and Josh. My heart broke and healed with Seth and Zach, I laughed with Jill and Ty, and I got angry because of Misty – God, what an irritating woman!!! Ugh. But really, I was right there with all the characters… Loved it.

Do yourself a favor and go buy this book. I promise you will not be disappointed. And even though this is book one in the series, it does have its happy ending, so feel free to one-click! I can’t wait for book two – Ty and Lauren’s story!!

I highly recommend Loving Cara to everyone!!
Like always, Kristen Proby, you did a marvelous job!!!!
