One More Kiss by Samantha Chase
Matt Reed, taking a hiatus from the band Riley Shaughnessy, decides to take a shot at Broadway where his attempt flops miserably. Crucified by the media, Matt, with the urging of Shaughnessy’s manager, disappears for a while until the bad publicity dies down. Matt heads back to the last place anyone would look for him, his home town and his friend’s home…just in time for his best friend’s delicious sister to move in as well.
Vivienne’s life is coming together. She is moving into a marvelous cottage on her brother’s property and it has been custom designed to fit her perfectly. She got a marvelous promotion with the cooking blog she’s been working. So, she is shocked to discover Matt, her brother’s best friend and the man she shared an amazing kiss with once, residing in her brother’s home.
Matt’s a hot mess, full of self-doubt and quite a few scars from his past.
Vivienne has a bright future but struggles with her feelings toward Matt.
I found One More Kiss to have a long building relationship with lots of life happenings in between. They build a friendship that evolves into more.
The first 75% of the book, I was thinking the story was a little too slow. But Chase did something right because in last 25%, I found myself brought to tears by the character connection Chase was building in the first 3/4th of the storytelling.
I received this ARC copy from SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca in exchange for a honest and volunteer review. This book is set for publication Feb. 7, 2016.
