A first kiss is hard to forget—and Kelsey Brian’s just walked into the bar where she works and isn’t planning to leave anytime soon. It figures. With her last semester of college finally here, Kelsey can’t wait to finish the year smoothly and start a new chapter. She doesn’t need to drive over yet another bump in the road.
Ethan Connelly has spent most of his adult life trying to be accepted by his father, and now he has the chance to make him proud. He’s also just stepped into another chance with the girl who got away. Deciding who matters most to him isn’t an easy choice. If he picks his father, he’ll lose her again—if he picks her, everything he’s worked for will be for nothing.
Can Kelsey learn to trust him, or will Ethan’s secret of why he’s really back in town tear them apart?
Just One Kiss by Jami Wagner (Black Alcove, #1)
Do you remember your first kiss? Do you remember the person who shared it with you? Kelsey never forgot that first kiss or the boy who shared it. She always had a crush on her best friend’s cousin, but kids grow up and move on, right? Kelsey did and her love life was less than stellar, one mistake after another, one cheater after another. Now she is done, or she was until Ethan walked back into her life, all grown up and hotter than a scorching sun.
Ethan never forgot Kelsey, her feisty attitude, or that kiss, but he is out to earn his father’s approval for once in his life. How could he know he would be put in a position to choose Kelsey over his hard-hearted father? Just once, he wanted the old man to say “atta boy,” but now he isn’t so sure…
JUST ONE KISS by Jami Wagner is romantic comedy with a little dishonesty tossed in. To be honest, neither Kelsey nor Ethan are all that mature, but they are cute together. This light-hearted romance reads fast and easy, has some terrific characters, a couple of twists that had me a little worried, but all told, I was entertained from start to finish…and what a finish it was!
