AshleyG here for ReviewingRomance.com… I’ve had the utmost privilege of beta reading for author D Kelly, and her Acceptance Series! Book one, Breaking Kate is out now! Check out my review here… Also read an excerpt! (BUY HERE NOW) I (RR) have the pleasure of asking Ms. Kelly some questions about her series. And hopefully, we’ll get a character to drop by also!

The first book might be a little dialogue heavy and have syrupy sweet romantic men but that’s not necessarily going to hold for the entire series. You have to remember… Read more »
