    One week.
    Manhattan apartment.
    Super-hot ex-boyfriend.
    …What’s the worst that could happen?
    It’s been nine months since Kaitlyn Parker has seen or heard from Martin Sandeke—nine months and five stages of matter. She’s lived through the worst of first-love heartbreak, and is most certainly stronger (and less likely to hide in science cabinets) than ever before.
    But now Martin is back. And he wants to be friends. But he’s sending mixed signals to the Bunsen burner in Kaitlyn’s pants.
    Will Martin re-capture Kaitlyn’s heart? Can Kaitlyn and Martin ever be just friends? Or, despite an abundance of chemistry, are some bonds just too unstable to endure?

    Fluttering Thoughts:

    Worldbuilding: This story takes place in and around Martin’s Manhattan apartment.
    Characters: The main characters in this novel are Martin Sandeke and Kaitlyn Parker. Doing something for yourself doesn’t always translate well to others but after taking that first step, everything seems to fall into place. Kaitlyn has decided to change the direction of her life and even though it wasn’t easy, it makes her happier than ever. The only thing missing is someone special in her life, but getting back into the saddle is easier said than done. Martin has done everything in his power to become the man Kaitlyn wanted him to be and the only thing that is left to do is to win her back. Can Martin show Kaitlyn how much he has changed and how much she means to him? Or will outside forces prevent them from finally coming together?
    Plot: This story is about Kaitlyn trying to find what makes her happy and figuring out if that includes Martin or not.
    Writing: This novel is written in first person point of view of Kaitlyn. It also begins six months after the second novel in the series. It is the third and final book in the series and must be read in order.
    Curb Appeal: I liked that this cover was similar to the other ones and that it was simple but powerful! The blurb talks about Martin and Kaitlyn’s relationship but leaves out other important parts of the story.
    Ultimately: This series was awesome! I loved the funny parts and I appreciated that it wasn’t just a love story but also showcased the heroine taking center stage, finding herself, and finding what made her happy! All in all, if you are in the mood for a hero who has done everything in his power to make his girl happy and a heroine who is more than ready for love then come check out Capture!!!!
