Book Review: Catch by Toni Kenyon

Title: Catch
Author: Toni Kenyon
Release Date: December 13th 2012

Tamsen Parsons is happy with her wacky world. So she leases fish to big business, her bedroom resembles a gypsy fortune-teller’s caravan and she’s got the roomie from hell. Still, the sun’s shining and she can smile.
That is until uptight lawyer Matthew Solomon rolls in like a storm. He’s over the corporate climb, unsure what he wants in life anymore and the sexy and cheerful Tamsen is exactly the short-term tonic he needs.
What Matt doesn’t count on is his interfering mother, Tamsen’s out-of-control best friend and falling in love.
Can a gypsy fish-minder really bring this bad-boy to heel?

My Thoughts

Catch starts out as a very fun and flirty story that really is quite a joy to read with its well written characters full of great banter and unlikely attraction. It's not long however, before the cracks start to show in Tamsen and Matthew's relationship and a rather clingy friend starts to become unhinged. Throw in a snooty, controlling mother and you've got quiet a tension filled book on your hands.
The NZ locality was great too, it was nice to know the city in which the story was set.

definitely has a Single White Female feel to it, and it does become a rather dark story in places, so if that's not your type of thing - you have been warned!

My only complaint with Catch would be that in places the relationship felt a little forced, it just lost some of its easy flow. But overall I enjoyed this story, even the really dark and desperate parts; it definitely makes a difference from reading overly saccharin sweet romances all the time.
A solid 4 star read ;]
