Jessica Kate: Love and Other Mistakes

By Kelly Bridgewater

Natalie Groves once had big dreams. But soon after her fiancé, Jeremy Walters, inexplicably broke off their engagement and left town, her father was diagnosed with cancer. Now tasked with keeping her family afloat, Natalie’s grand plans have evaporated . . . and God feels very far away.
Fast-forward seven years, and Jeremy is back in Charlottesville with an infant son and years of regrets. When his niece, Lili, lands on his doorstep in need of a place to stay, Jeremy needs help—and fast.

An internship opening finally presents Natalie a chance at her dream job, but she needs a second income to work around it—and the only offer available is Jeremy’s. They could be the solutions to one another’s problems, provided they don’t kill each other in the process. When they join forces, sparks fly. But they both know there’s a thin line between love and hate . . . and that love will turn out to be the best decision—or the biggest mistake—of all.

My Thoughts:

Love and Other Mistakes by Jessica Kate is the quintessential contemporary romance novel. With a predictable plot and a story focused completely on the romance and budding on and off relationship between Natalie and Jeremy, Kate created a story worthy of fans of contemporary romance. I do enjoy how Kate created Natalie to have snarky responses toward Jeremy. She still has a lot of ways to go when readers meet her for the first time to forgive Jeremy. There is a lot of normal interactions and confusion that life brings that Kate didn't shy away from. She created a realistic world for the characters to roam around and tell their story. I did find the story a little dry at parts because it didn't have anything happening to progress the story forward. The story does end with the predictable happily-ever-after marriage ceremony. Overall, Love and Other Mistakes is a wonderful read for fans of contemporary romance. Fans of Contemporary romance like Kara Issac, Courtney Walsh, and Melissa Tagg would probably enjoy this novel.

I received a complimentary copy of Love and Other Mistakes by Jessica Kate from Thomas Nelson Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

About the Author:

Jessica Kate
From Amazon
Australian author Jessica Kate writes inspirational romances that are fun, sassy and real.

Jess is a screenwriting groupie, co-host of the StoryNerds vlog and podcasts (, and her favorite place to be - apart from Mum and Dad's back deck - is a theme park.

She's traveled North America and Australia, and samples her favorite pasta wherever she goes - but the best (so far) is still the place around the corner from her corporate day job as a training developer.

She loves watching sit-coms with her housemates and being a leader in a new church plant. (Taken from Amazon.)
