Katrina Mahoney has a very full life attending university to study a law degree, training for triathlons and now she is working part time as well. She couldn’t possibly find time for a relationship, especially after her last one ended so catastrophically.
Right now she is content focusing on work, study and training while hanging out with her best friend David Taylor, a womaniser with a heart of gold that would do anything for Katrina – except watch her get hurt again.
That is, until the dashing Elliot Roberts, a junior solicitor from her work, shows an interest in her despite their office’s ‘No Dating’ policy.
Katrina struggles with following her heart or following her mind and has trouble seeing where her heart truly lies.
A Beautiful Struggle is about Katrina getting a new job at a law firm where she meets Elliot. She's had a bad experience with her ex boyfriend Christopher when he did something really awful to her. Now she just wants to stay away from men.
But the one man that never pays attention to any of the women in the office starts to pay attention to her, and she has a major attraction to him.
Things start to go bad in Katrina's life when she tries to start a relationship with Elliot. Her best friend David doesn't want to speak to her any more, and it feels like things are just getting to be too much for her.
This book has a lot to do with looking for something you already have in the wrong place. I enjoyed the idea of the story, but I just didn't like this one. I couldn't get into it, and I couldn't connect with the main characters.
However, even though I didn't really like this one, the writing was still good, and the next one in the series actually looks very interesting so I plan on reading it. So I'm not giving up on the series yet, but again I didn't really care for this book. It just wasn't the book for me.
