One More Kiss by Samantha Chase (Band on the Run, #1) 

One More Kiss (Band on the Run #1)Matt learned in a very public way that pride goes before the fall. The public fallout was brutal and his own insecurities sent him running home to hideout until as they say, “the next big disaster” hits the news. Not only did he get his privacy, but he found the woman whose kiss became his fantasy of perfection, but he wasn’t prepared to discover she wasn’t a figment of his drunken stupor. She was real, she was beautiful and she had been there almost his entire life. How did he not see it?

Vivienne is following her passion, becoming successful and wasn’t expecting her brother’s best friend to come home and turn her life and her heart upside down again. All her life she was the little sister, the one with the secret crush on Matt, the one who shared an amazing kiss she never forgot, but it seemed that he had.

Together they shared things friends share, including Matt’s horrendous past, the one that left him the bitter and insecure man who had to prove to himself that he had worth. But when Matt’s worst nightmare stood right in front of him, only Matt could face his demons, would they send him running once again just when he and Vivienne had found something worth hanging on to?

Samantha Chase’s ONE MORE KISS is NOT an insta-love romance, it is the discovery of true friendship, trust, happiness and the inner peace that leads to love. Matt truly is a mess, and just perhaps a little too self-absorbed until Vivienne’s strength and love for life with all of its pitfalls opens his eyes and his heart! Filled with sweet and innocent moments, fun banter and the heated passion that only love can bring, one again, Samantha Chase carves out a romance as endearing as young lovers carving their initials in a tree seeing nothing but hope for the future.




Carefully, she put the cap back on the bottle and stood. “Okay, maybe I don’t know exactly what you’re going through, but I can see how it’s affecting you. And I know I don’t know you that well, but it doesn’t mean I can’t see what’s right in front of me.”
“Really?” he asked incredulously.
“Yes, really.”
He made a snorting sound and walked away. Vivienne eyed the back door and seriously considered just calling it a night. Clearly she wasn’t helping him in any way, shape or form and was only serving to instigate on an already sensitive subject. Besides, she wasn’t good with confrontations. It was one of the reasons she enjoyed working from home – no drama.
So without a word, she simply made her way across the room toward the door. Her hand had barely touched the doorknob when she felt Matt’s hands on her shoulders as he spun her around to face him. She gasped in surprise. “Matt? What…?”
“What do you see right now, Vivienne?” he asked, his voice low, a near growl.
“I don’t…what do you mean?” There was a tremor in her voice and it was breathy and very unlike her.
He stepped in closer and her back came in contact with the wall. “You said you can see what’s right in front of you. So tell me, what do you see?”
It was a loaded question, she thought. And if she wasn’t careful, she’d blurt out how she saw a sexy-as-hell man who turned her on simply by being in the same room! But there was no way she could admit to that and she knew it certainly wouldn’t help the situation at all.
“I see a man who is struggling with his identity,” she said, swallowing hard.
His eyes narrowed. “Seriously? That’s what you see? That’s all you see?”
There was something in his tone that warned her this was going in a completely different direction than she thought and all she could do was nod.
“Then you honestly can’t see what’s right in front of you.” Now his voice was gruff and so deep and so close that Vivienne almost purred from the sound of it. “Because I’m not struggling – I’m a bastard. I’m selfish. And you know what? I don’t even care.”
She shook her head.
“Trust me. I know what I want, and it’s right in front of me.”
Her eyes went wide as she softly gasped.
And then he pressed against her fully and kissed her.
