“His name was on my lips, written on my heart, etched on my soul. I’d never believed in fate, never subscribed to soul mates. But if ever there was a man who was my exact match, my most perfect equal, it was Theo.”
For anyone who has followed my reviews over the years, it will come as no surprise when I say Staci Hart is one of my favorite authors and RLC is one of my all-time favorite series to date. Knowing Well Suited is the final installment in the RLC series, it is certainly bittersweet to see the ending to this group I have grown to love so much. Like all Staci’s books in the past, I positively devoured this one, Katherine and Theo were probably my favorite couple to date and I am a huge sucker for the accidental pregnancy trope. It was just everything I had hoped it would be and more.
Katherine was positively amazing; I loved every aspect of her persona. I can’t even tell you how many times I had to stop reading because I was laughing hysterically, the words were becoming blurry from my tears and I therefore had to stop because I didn’t want to miss a thing. One of the things I loved about Kate is her randomness. I love random people who spill lots of random facts, so she was definitely my kind of heroine. While this is Katherine’s story in all it’s glory, it was great to meet up with the other girls from the previous RLC books too.
After spending one night filled with unbridled passion and lust, Theo and Katherine go their separate ways, well from no fault of Theo. Katherine is an extremely intelligent and independent woman who has walls built up around her to guard her heart. She doesn’t believe in love, only facts and logic. The more I got to know Katherine, the more I understood why she is the way she is and I really started to feel bad for her.
“You’re different, and every difference you have, I admire. Everything you consider difficult and inflexible, I understand. We’re very much alike, you and me.”
“I know. But… Theo, you could have a girl who’s beautiful and charming like you. You could have someone who would complement you, make you shine brighter.”
“Well, that’s the trick, Kate….
I don’t want anyone but you.”
Theo is the perfect hero and he could not be any more perfect for Katherine. He is smart, sophisticated, but also very down to earth, sweet, caring and open to the prospects of something more with Kate, she just needs to break down her walls and open her heart and her mind to Theo. His feelings for Kate run deep and his patience towards her were nothing short of inspiring. He was just utter perfection.
One of the things I loved most about Theo, was his ability to step up and take responsibility for his actions. When Katherine shows up weeks after their hot night together and shares the news of their impending baby, he never once backs down and wants to be there every step of the way. He is a true hero in every sense of the word and he has the ability to make any girl week in the knees.
This book was just everything to me and more, I’m so sad to see the RLC series end, but I am so happy it went out with an absolute bang. Well Suited was funny, sweet, heartwarming and just so beautiful. Theo and Kate came together in the most unexpected way, but as their relationship and feelings developed a lot more, it was clear how well they really were suited for one another. I finished it with the biggest smile on my face and it just made me so happy. I can not recommend this story enough, it was the most phenomenal romcom, definitely worthy of being one clicked today.
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.
From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
