ARC review: One Little Kiss by Maggie Kelley

Goodreads   Amazon

Love blogger Kate is done with love.  She’s been burned by far too many good-looking men to give anybody a chance, so she’s not expecting much more than a good story when her boss sends her off on an island vacation.  (Not to mention that the guy she’s interviewing is her boss’s brother, so she has to be well-behaved.)

Relationship expert Jake is also done with love.  He wrote his book. He made his fortune.  None of it mattered to his ex-wife.  If he couldn’t even stay married, what business does he have giving love advice to the masses?  That’s why he repeatedly denies his sister’s offer of a feature on her website.  But when Kate comes crashing into his life, he’s not sure how long he’ll be able to stay away.

I could summarize this book in two words: It’s cute.  It’s exactly what I was hoping it would be, a light-hearted but sexy romance between two people who are obviously meant to be together.  Kate and Jake had chemistry from their first interaction, and the rest of the book was spent rooting for them to figure it out and make a decision to get together for the long haul.

This is the third book in the Smart Cupid series, but no prior knowledge of the characters is necessary to enjoy this story.  I’ve never read anything by Maggie Kelley before, but now I know that she’s an author to watch.

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC!

Final rating: ★★★★☆
