Review: Caleb + Kate

Summary from Goodreads:

When Kate's family purchases a hotel in the Pacific Northwest, she enters a world that is wholly unknown to her. She never has any privacy because of the constant flow of guests. And as the hotel owner's daughter, she struggles to make friends.

Then she meets Caleb, a strange combination of working-class, Hawaiian culture, and Christian bad boy. He talks about love in an all new way that she finds so alluring. But the two have nothing in common. He rarely smiles, rides a motorcycle with a rough crowd from town, and worst of all, he totally ignores Kate. But Kate has something that he needs and she resolves to prove to him that what she has doesn't define who she is.

My Thoughts:

What a fun spin on Romeo and Juliet! Meet the Monrovie’s and the Khalini’s. Their grandfathers have been feuding for years, over land, and over a woman. Kate and Caleb know they’re not supposed to like each other, and they sure try not to, but sometimes you just can’t help the one you love.

This really was a cute story. I really enjoyed the romance between Kate and Caleb. It was sweet, innocent, and with a touch of forbidden, I couldn’t resist. I also appreciated the cleanness this book held. There was no swearing, to threat of sex happening anywhere in it, and religion is actually a fairly big part of the book. It was just a nice, light read.

The setting kept throwing me just a bit, and that is my one complaint about the book. The mix of Hawaiian culture while being set in Oregon was a little weird for me, I just had a hard time grasping it. But I did appreciate the author’s ability to balance the contrast of Hawaiian families and the setting of the Pacific Northwest.

4 out of 5 stars.

There is actually a fairly large hawaiian contingent in the area. I used to know a family that would regularly have luau's - complete with the roasted pig!

There are always going to be some people who will be more hesitant to “blindly” donate their money to organizations and just pray that the money is put to good use, especially after what has happened to the financial scams of certain NGOs here in the Philippines of late, which is why this post happened.
