I loved the references to Marilyn Monroe and the dance scenes were so wonderful I could being there watching them take place. There is so much I could say but I really don't want to spoil this for anyone so all I am going to say is read this book and be swept along in the passion and love. And then when you are done go read everything else Ms Roth has written too!

Beau Harris is pretty much everything you don’t want in a man all wrapped up in a hot package. He’s a shark; he’s ruthless at what he does and makes no apologies. He’s a serial womanizer who is only looking out for number one, himself.
Or so we thought.
Whitney is a dancer, preparing to tour with pop princess Vanessa Curtis as she heads out to promote her latest album. She’s also Vanessa’s little sister. She hasn’t seen Beau since she was just a teen, when Vanessa first signed with Beau, and Whitney was sent off to an exclusive boarding school in Europe. She’s heard the rumors of Beau’s manwhorish ways, but the Beau that she gets to know is nothing like that. Is Beau just behaving himself to get in Whitney’s pants? Or has he genuinely changed his ways, knowing that Whitney is the one for him?
At the end of Natural Harmony I’ll be honest, I thought Beau was a serious a-hole. The way he treated and strung Sabrina along made me not like him a whole lot. By the end of Sway, jumpin’ Jesus on a pogo stick…my ovaries were ready burst and I was ready to profess my undying love for the man. Ms. Roth had taken Beau from a broken shell of a man, near the point of desperation, to a man that embodied love and fidelity. We see what happened in his past to make him the way he is, and see what has to happen in order to find the happiness that he once had.
I loved Natural Harmony, the first book in this series. I wish I hadn’t used that term the first time around because it makes it all the harder to summarize my feelings for this book. I freaking LOVED this book. Ms. Roth writes romance, however she doesn’t let that label pigeonhole her; her books are so much more than just mere romances. Sway, in particular, pushes the boundaries of the average romance. Yes, we’re treated to some hot, sexy goodness; however, Ms. Roth takes on some hot topic issues, namely the May/December romance of Beau and Whitney, as well as the same-sex romance of another set of characters. What it all boils down to is that we’re all humans and we all deserve to find the love of someone. That love may look different from person to person, but we all deserve to be happy, regardless of what others may perceive is “right” or “proper”.
While Sway is the second book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. I highly suggest reading Natural Harmony first though, as Sway will mean all the more to you. We see Beau in a completely different light and the way he’s able to interact with Sabrina and Wade just further exemplifies his metamorphosis.
This was an easy five star read that I devoured in one sitting. It is well written and I’ve established that the characters are well developed and the storyline is engaging. This book will pull you in and you will feel all of those emotions of love. Loves lost, first loves, unrequited love, it’s all there.
I think one of the reasons that I like Ms. Roth’s characters so much is that she is writing US. We can relate to her characters because any one of us could be her character. O.k., so we’re not pop stars or record executives, however we are people that find love in different places, in different ways. I mean, Beau is the hero and he’s graying and in his 40s. I have a husband like that, I can relate to that. I like escaping into books, but at the same time, it’s nice to see your life reflected back to you once in awhile. To think, “hey, my life’s not so bad!” As much as we’d all love to have our hot 25-year-old MMA fighter, or rock star, or our perfect dom, rarely is that in the cards. Beau Harris? Yeah, that could happen.
Again, music is the back drop and Beau's career seems to be spiraling out of control, which has him rattled, as that has always been his diversion and focus, the one area of his life that stayed in control. But after his debacle in Natural Harmony, the only client he has left is Vanessa, chart topping, Grammy award winning pop star; just so happens that Whitney is Vanessa's baby sister and has heard all about Beau's nefarious ways, but she sees something in Beau that no one else has, his caring heart. Whitney had issues with loss and separation, and needs someone to share her fears and pain with, other than Marilyn, lol. Her famous sister Vanessa, has her life full with her career, so sharing her nightmares with her seems out of the question. Vanessa has her own secrets and burdens that she is struggling with, so the last thing she needs or wants is her sister with a man-whore like Beau; even though she personally has experienced his strength of character and kindness, Vanessa has seen Beau's meandering ways with the women. Beau has a history with one woman that changed him, hardened his heart, and strengthened his resolve to never let a woman have any control over his heart. These are the angsty elements of this story that Kate so wonderfully navigates us through, and I really, really enjoyed it. Thanks Kate for another great story, and as always looking forward to more.
So, if you ever read my reviews you know I give you more of my feelings than the books story. I hate spoilers. We have two people who carry a lot of baggage from the past that keep them from fully committing. Yet a part of me thinks faith had a hand in this too. Beau and Whitney are meant to be with each other. They are two pieces of a whole. They fell in sync so beautifully. It didn't hurt that her night routine of Madonna films gave them the in to connect. 😉
The sparks you can feel through the pages from this two is so great I instantly felt it. I love the connection, and well the steamy scenes between made me want Beau more. Whitney is a lucky girl to get the chance to see and touch him. Age difference definitely was not an issue. They touched each other in many ways, and gave each other what was missing to let go and move forward. They did have struggles, insecurities, and just plain envy involved.
I loved reading Sway because it pulled so many emotions. This book stayed with me for days and still does. Beau has definitely nominated the spot of book boyfriend, and replaced my Christian Grey from FSOG... So, if you haven't picked it up yet, I suggest you do.
Kate has become that Author that I will read any and all her books with no prompting. She is a must have for me. 👍🌹
I was not fond of Beau in Natural Harmony...I felt like he was clinging onto a relationship with a younger woman for all the wrong reasons. Now in Sway...we are given more insight into his past heartaches and why he became the man he is today....and I really fell for him =)
When he needs to get away from his life, he moves in with his good friend and client Vanessa and is thrown into a relationship with her younger sister Whitney. But it's complicated...another age difference and their pasts preventing them from completely being free to open up.
Kate Roth has a talent for writing beautiful love stories that veer away from the usual formula and I think it is refreshing. Her women are strong yet vulnerable and her men are not your average cookie cutter guys.
Another sweet and bittersweet love story where everyone is not always how they seem on the outside.
Really looking forward to more from this talented author!
**** 4.5 **** "fighting for an HEA" stars =)
~ Review has been done in conjunction with Platypire Reviews ~
Beau redeemed himself in my eyes in the prologue alone. It gave answers to why he was the jack ass he was in Natural Harmony. Then, he meets Whitney and try as they might, these two cannot stay away from one another. They are exactly what the other needs. Their chemistry is explosive and their heart break is heart wrenching. But sometimes, two broken hearts, can be smooshed and sewn together to make one. A stronger one than either were to begin with.
If you are looking for a romance that will make you have all the feels and taps into a bit of forbidden love, this is the book for you. You won't regret it! Then...go grab ALL of Kate's other books. Seriously. Do it.
