Blurb:

When love drives you crazy . . .

When sexy Joe Malone never calls after their explosive kiss, Kylie shoves him out of her mind. Until she needs a favor, and it’s a doozy. Something precious to her has been stolen and there’s only one person with unique finder-and-fixer skills that can help—Joe. It means swallowing her pride and somehow trying to avoid the temptation to throttle him—or seduce him.

the best thing to do . . .

No, Joe didn’t call after the kiss. He’s the fun time guy, not the forever guy. And Kylie, after all she’s been through, deserves a good man who will stay. But everything about Kylie makes it damned hard to focus, and though his brain knows what he has to do, his heart isn’t getting the memo.

… is enjoy the ride.

As Kylie and Joe go on the scavenger hunt of their lives, they discover surprising things about each other. Now, the best way for them to get over “that kiss” might just be to replace it with a hundred more.

ARC Romance Series smart and funny

With each Heartbreaker Bay novel that comes out, my favorites always get replaced by its predecessor. It is true in this case as well. I have to say that About That Kiss may very well be my favorite book of the series.

“She was more than fine with him. With him, she felt like Wonder Woman.” ~Kylie

 

Leave it up to Joe to make any woman feel like Wonder Woman. I knew that I would love his character once we had his book and I wasn’t wrong. If you’ve read the previous series, you know Joe as being surly and not really that lovable. It’s always those kinds of characters that truly become the best, in my opinion. In About That Kiss, Joe comes off as actually a sweet and thoughtful guy. With that kind of complexity to his character, with the tough outer shell and soft gooey inside. (P.S. Those are my favorite type of heroes, someone should make chocolate bars based on characters like that.)

Jill Shalvis sure does know how to write a really good contemporary romance. She hits all the right buttons. Comical banter, character growth, and in this story, she added a bit of fun suspense to the party.

 

“My mom once told me to fall for someone who makes me feel like I do when my phone’s at three percent and I just found a charger.” ~Kylie

 

As Kylie says afterwards, she never lets her phone get to three percent. Both Kylie and Joe have relationship hiccoughs. All the more fun to see them fall on their butts in love with each other. While that could get frustrating in some reads, I did find that I enjoyed their ups and downs. Kylie just knew what she wanted and that was getting a valuable back that was stolen from her. Oh, and seeing her mom’s relationships kind of scarred her perception about love in general.

With this book, I have found my first book boyfriend of the year. Actually, it’s been quite a long time since I had one, so this more than made up for the dry spell. 😉

Shalvis is always the answer. I love all her books and this crew is quickly replacing the Lucky Harbor denizens as my favorite. Joe is definitely great book boyfriend material. Such an alpha, but so tenderhearted at the same time.
