Project Kaitlyn (The Sweet Water Circle #1) by Grayson Avery

Project Kaitlyn


Meet Kaitlyn Colby, a clumsy, inappropriate blurter with self-esteem issues, but also quite handy with an axe. She’s certainly no superhero, but she fights the battles of a single mom with sweet snarkasm. Between work and pining for and co-parenting with her man-child ex (is there any other kind?), Kaitlyn has no time to find that special someone. And if she did, would he really want her anyway? Kaitlyn’s sister and friends (The Sweet Water Circle) say yes, so following a typical Kaitlyn slip up, The Circle intervenes to force her out of the funk that she fell into following her unwanted divorce.

When Kaitlyn makes a decision to pursue her advertising career over love, she tumbles (like no tumble you’ve ever seen…or heard) into the life of hunky, bay breeze-drinking Hunter Dixon, an ad exec who is intrigued enough by Kaitlyn that he hires her firm to revive a struggling project, much like herself.

Can Kaitlyn become the woman she needs to be to land the man of her dreams? Maybe. Maybe not. But you’ll laugh out loud as she tries. There’s no doubt you’ll be rooting for the lovable, hilarious, and relatable Kaitlyn. And you’ll probably love her friends, too, which is good, because their stories are ready to be told in the Sweet Water Circle series!

Project Kaitlyn could be the funniest book you ever read. It’s a hilarious romantic comedy that speaks the truth (well, most of the time) about life and love, and…hiking thongs? What the heck is that? Well, you’ll just have to read it to find out!


l always love a good romantic comedy with a quirky heroine and Kaitlyn is just that and more. She is a single mother of two, friends with a wild and feisty bunch of pit sniffers (ya gotta read the book for that one), and a taste tester at an ad agency who wants to do more.  She has no time for a love life and is still pining for her ex who is emotionally immature and takes advantage of her vulnerability.  Then she literally falls head over heels (an extreme LOL and cringeworthy moment) for Hunter Dixon, hot ad exec and splash and dasher.  Kaitlyn’s sis, Jenn, and friends (The Sweet Water Circle) convince Kaitlyn to move on with her life, so when Hunter asks her to work with him on a new project, she accepts it.  And then the sparks begin.

I love Kaitlyn’s no-holds-barred honesty and mother friggen kid-appropriate swear words and when she lays into the silicon valley of bitchiness, Sasha, her work colleague and nemesis, it is a sight to behold. Kaitlyn’s insecurities and her idea that she’s undeserving of success, love, and happiness, are heartbreaking. So when Hunter sees her potential as a friend and a colleague, despite the hot mess that she is, it is refreshing and fun to watch how he builds her confidence and lets her shine.  Speaking of the charming Hunter, he is a welcoming male character who has a bit of quirkiness himself. Though he says he is not to be taken seriously, he is the first to fall.

There are many characters who really grow in this story including Kaitlyn with her self-confidence, Hunter with his sense of direction in life, Aaron, Kaitlyn’s ex with his role as a father, and Sasha, as a colleague who finally works with Kaitlyn and not against her.

I recommend this hilarious rom-com that will have you laughing so hard you can’t breathe. There is so much love between friends, angst between colleagues, and heat between lovers, that you won’t be able to put this book down. And I can’t wait to read Jenn’s story next.

Thank you to Mr. Avery for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
