Review: A Beautiful Catastrophe by Katheryn Kiden

For two years Shay Daniels has been stuck in the past—stuck in a pain so deeply overwhelming that she constantly feels as if she’s drowning. A chance meeting gives her her first breath of fresh air, but it could be her final downfall.

He’s stuck wondering what could have been—letting the pain of everything he’s lost simmer within his broken heart. She’s the first thing that has made him feel like himself again in years. He might be able to love her—he wants to—if he could only manage to live in the present.

Devastating pasts.

Uncertain futures.

Life is supposed to move forward, but what if all it does is revolve in a heartbreaking circle?

What if every step you take toward making yourself whole again only leads you closer to another beautiful catastrophe?

MY REVIEW

A Beautiful Catastrophe by Katheryn Kiden
Shay & Deacon
BEAUTIFUL AND BREATH TAKING
5 Catastrophic stars

Brace yourselves, this one is catastrophic and unpredicted. This is a love story for the ages. It’s warmth and powerful words will take you on a journey so shattering yet rewarding that your heart will never be the same. It’s profound, it’s tragic, and yet it’s even comical at times. I was glad I got to read this one. I’m sure there will be people out there that will knock this story for the simple fact that it’s not all hearts and flowers. Well, get a clue peeps.. LIFE is NOT all hearts and flowers. This book is amazing! I am forever changed after reading this.

Shay is suffering from the loss of a loved one and recuperating from a heart transplant. She’s a lost soul, wondering through life without any direction. She believes herself to be not worthy of the new life she’s been given. Her life is about to take on a whole new meaning…

Enter Deacon! Deacon is a doctor at the hospital Shay goes to have her new ticker checked up on. He is also suffering a great loss and therefore he is also going through the motions of life almost the same way Shay is. When their two worlds collide will they explode into a million pieces or will they be the glue that mends their broken lives back together?

The supporting character cast isn’t too large. Tyler is Shay’s doctor and also Deacon’s BFF. He and his wife Mia are very compassionate and caring to both Shay and Deacon, but also, very witty as well. The only other supporting character that bares mentioning is August, Shays friend. He’s there for her when she needs to release some anger.

The storyline is absolutely perfect. The characters prevailing and relatable. The tension is a slow build, but oh so damn worth it. The pacing is an even keel and the writing style effortless to read. This is my first Katheryn Kiden book, but it won’t be my last. Loved it!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Katheryn was born in Maine and has lived there her entire life. Growing up, she was the only girl out of five children. Out of four loving, but hard-assed, brothers she has been set on fire TWICE, shot at, left with a burning car and a five gallon container of gas, scared out of her mind every time they got behind the wheel, and has enough hilarious stories and amazing memories to fill a million books. It made her independent and every female character she writes reflects strength and independence.
Katheryn books are full of page turning suspense, humor, and enough steam to overheat your e-reader.
“There are no weak women, just weak moments.”
