From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes her first duo of paranormal romances!

ONCE UPON A TIME...

the most beautiful boy in the world kissed me.
I’ve never been able to forget.
Perhaps it was his jet-black hair,
or the changing copper-color of his eyes,
the intense way he looked at me…
or the fact that he awakened my passion for the first time,
at once otherworldly yet heartbreakingly real.
But after that kiss, I never saw him again.

His name was Jack Beauloup.
Jack, my “Beautiful Wolf.”

Twenty years passed. He has returned. For me.

I honestly do not read much paranormal. If so, it is usually only by my trusted authors, so I was willing to take a chance on Katy Regnery writing as K.P. Kelley.  I was immediately pulled into this mysterious story through Darcy's eyes...her confusion, obsession, fear, and intense feelings. 

And Jack...his secrecy, intensity, and sincerity drew me in. Their pull was magnetic and their connection ran deep. So much so that after twenty years she cannot forget him and the one moment they shared.

He is the key to what has been happening to her, but answers are only gradually revealed. Jack is a life changer for Darcy...at age fifteen and again at age thirty five. His appearance in her life is significant and overwhelming. He seems too good to be true. 

They are bound together. It seems impossible to manage a connection over twenty years with barely any contact. But for them, it is true. The chemistry. The feelings. The strange ways they seem to be able to communicate to each other effectively. The unexplained occurences. The fact that they could not forget each other. But now it could be their second chance. But Jack seems to be only giving her small pieces of information. 

What does it all really mean? Who really is Jack Beauloup? Can she trust her feelings and him?

This story is swirling with secrets, mysteries, and legends that seem unbelievable, but this author immerses you in this world and puts you right in the middle of it. The sights. The smells. The sensations. The deep connection. The longing and need. I felt it all. It is unique, intriguing, romantic, and completely enthralling. She made me believe that the impossible is possible. It is brimming with emotion, pain, sacrifice, and such a strong need to make hope a reality.

I recommend going in blind. I had an idea of what it was about, but even that was not quite the real story and it was full of surprises. The author does an amazing job of layering the mystery, building the tension, and giving us bread crumbs towards the truth as we get Darcy's side of their story. I was totally mesmerized by the events and by allure of Jack. And then we are given Jack's point of view, and my heart literally broke in two. He has had so many challenges. He is so devoted and so sure he can make it work. He is willing to live for her, to die for her, and clings to hope that she will give him a real chance. I absolutely loved him.

I loved the side characters of her best friend, Willow, and brother, Amory. They are intriguing. And there is so much potential for more stories with his siblings. And I hope she writes them. But right now, I need book two of It's You to see what happens with Jack and Darcy.


I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review. 

Twenty years ago, one kiss changed Darcy’s life forever. But immediately after, the most beautiful boy she had ever seen disappeared. She wouldn’t see him for 20 years, but now he is back. And he is back for her.

I love the world building that takes place in the first half of the book. Darcy has no idea what Jack Beauloup is or why he disappeared for twenty years, but she has never forgotten him and the kiss they shared one summer in high school. As Darcy learns bits and pieces about Jack it becomes clear that there is a lot going on in secret.

The chemistry between them is sharp and it has to be for it to still burn bright after 20 years with no contact. As Darcy begins to question why she still feels the same for him as she did as a teenager, she begins to see that there is more between them than she has ever found with another man.

The first half of the story is Darcy’s story, readers learn as she does exactly what it is that ties her to Jack, or at least as much as she can understand. The second half is Jack’s own experiences and all I can say is that it was definitely an eye opening revelation to see the world through his eyes. I loved the complexity that was added to the story when Jack’s perspective guides the way.

I pick up paranormal books when I need a change from the contemporary romance that I typically read. Sometimes it’s just the change of pace that I need. In this case, I was drawn to the synopsis even knowing it was paranormal and I wasn’t feeling the need for that break. This was simply a fantastic read that kept me turning pages from start to finish.

I loved the PNR twists, the shifts that can happen because that bit of reality has been suspended. But this book doesn’t really on readers suspending reality. It skates that line where myths and legends meet what is real. I finished it and immediately wished I had It’s You #2 to continue their story. This is one of those reads that once you start, you have to finish.

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
The thrilling conclusion of Katy Regnery’s first paranormal romance series!

HAPPILY EVER AFTER…

To some, they’re just words signifying a fairytale ending.
For me, Jack Beauloup, they represent an unyielding desire:
Forever with Darcy Turner, the unexpected love of my life.
A love that has placed her human life in danger.
According to Pack Law, my binding is an abomination that must be severed.
It’s ignited a fiery hatred that I must confront and control.
But what is bound cannot be broken.
I will keep Darcy safe.
Even if it means giving up on my dreams.
Even if it means giving up my life.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.
Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.
Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.
In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
