Cute and fluffy
Kiss Me at Christmas - Valerie Bowman

For more quotes and comments - Buddy Read

 

The past twenty-four hours with him had been unbelievable. Not only had he nearly been killed, but when she’d treated the man for a pistol wound, of all things, she’d been lusting after him like a common street doxy.

 

The leads, Daffin and Regina started off cute and sweet. I really liked Regina as she was a wonderful combination of vulnerable and courageous. When she is talking with Daffin you could feel how much she liked him and how nervous that would make her but then she would charge on bravely, such a great character. Daffin was interesting as a Bow Street Runner but towards the end he started to get a bit redundant with the "I'm not good enough for her" old stand-by.

 

The first half was a really good beginning but the second half didn't expand on it enough for me with growing depth in their relationship, the murder mystery had a villain seemingly out of nowhere and a very rushed ending, past and future hero/heroines clogged up the ending, and I was wanting a little bit more of a holiday feel. 

 

Overall though, I liked it as it had some cute moments, humor popping in, and a heartfelt heroine.

Kiss Off (Kiss Talent Agency, Book #5) by Virna DePaul
Kiss Off - Virna De Paul

 

 

She's running from heartache. He's searching for forever. Will these two strangers find what they need at the hands of fate, in each other's arms? Kiss Off is a sassy drama filled with wit and emotion. Kara is the girl that had it all, but chose to walk away. Declan is the man that has a plan for everything, except falling in love. When the wanderer and the workaholic come together, all bets are off. Can they take a chance on a new beginning or will their secrets tear them apart? DePaul climbed inside my heart with Declan and Kara. The flaws drew me in, yet the beauty of the journey kept me interested.

Kiss Me at Christmas - Valerie Bowman

She needed to set this to rights. “When we met last summer, I felt we had a connection, and I think you did, too.” 
He arched a brow. “That, my lady, is a dangerous statement, and I make a habit of not commenting on dangerous statements.”

A lovely, sweet romance
The Kiss Quotient - Helen Hoang

I have to admit that while I very much wanted to read about a female protagonist who has Asperger’s, the cover kept putting me off. I’m delighted that I got past that because this romance was a delight. And incredibly sexy.

 

If you’ve followed this blog for a long time, you know how much I love Korean Dramas. It’s awesome how our half-Vietnamese male lead, Michael is compared looks-wise to Daniel Henney who was in one of my favourite KDramas, The Lovely Sam Soon. Michael is also just a great guy with a big heart and a lot of baggage. No alphaholeness here whatsoever.

 

The Kiss Quotient is a reverse Pretty Woman story and because Hoang has done such an excellent job in crafting her characters, the premise works. This is an #ownvoices book, but it is never preachy. I was rooting for Stella the entire time. It was a joy to be in her head and watch her blossom under the attention of a man who was worthy of her.

 

I’m going to leave it at that because I want you to just fall into this romance the way I did.
