“Caleb and Kate is a really cute novel. Kate is the popular girl of the school and when the new scholarship boy turns out to be working at her family's hotel and there is actual history between their families, things get interesting. I really loved the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. They...”see full review » see other reviews »
“Watch out Romeo and Juliet here comes Caleb and Kate. This book is pretty much a modern day version of the beloved tale of Romeo and Juliet. Of course they have similar struggles of forbidden love but Caleb + Kate still holds its own. [because we all know the famouse shakesperian story it will be a very short review].
Coming from two completely different lives; Kate being a rich heiress of a hotel owner and Caleb who works as part of the grounds crew still manages to fall in love. Despite all the money Kate is very down to earth and kind to everyone. She is very aware of how fortunate she is and seems to be very humble about her status. Caleb being the laid back surfer has no interest fitting into her life. When Caleb’s unexpected feelings causes trouble for his future he seems to grow and become his own person putting their family feud aside.
This book was super cute and great but unfortunately it fell victim to my picky-ness. [it was one of those I wanted to read an angsty romance when what I got was a sweet innocent love story]. With that aside it was sweet and a fast read for a summer day.

“It had good character development, and I really liked the idea of this love story being intertwined with faith. I just felt that overall it didn't dive deep enough. I'm glad I read it, but not one of my absolute favorites.”Ashley F wrote this review Wednesday, February 1, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“It's not that I didn't like it. It jsut could've been better than it was. I have religious views, but it was a little too Jesus-y. Kate was a little stubborn and rude sometimes, but never seemed to be told off or punished. And about....halfway through, Caleb went soft, which was grated on my nerves. ”Taryn :) wrote this review Saturday, April 9, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“"No, I"m serious, it would be just like you to fall for some poor guy. Remember the vow. It doesn't matter that we were six or something. A vow is a vow. We marry enormously wealthy or not at all." "Yes, Wealthy. Vow. I won't forget. Can we go now?"
Kate made that promise before she knew how special Caleb was going to be. Caleb is from Hawaii and works for Kate's dad. Kate's dad owns a hotel franchise and is veery rich. There is a fued between the two families and it fights to keep them apart.
I thought this book was ok. I just thought it was kind of stupid. It was a very easy read which was nice. I guess it was a good story, it just wasn't carried out the best. ”
“A modern love story (cell phones and all) with similarities to Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet'. Caleb and Kate come from different worlds and attend the uber-rich and classy Gaitlin Preparatory School. I was drawn into the story and couldn't put it down until I learned the fate of these 'star-crossed lovers'. This is a Christian love story that I will read again.”Trish B wrote this review Thursday, January 13, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
