Author: Jami Wagner
Genre: Romance, New Adult, Contemporary Romance, Contemporary
My rating: ☆
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?
Disclaimer: This review is based on my own thoughts. I don’t intend to discourage you from reading this book with my review.
Just One Kiss is NOT an okay read for me. I have to say that I had high expectations for this book because of the reviews that I read in Goodreads. This book started out good but the plot went downhill as the story goes on. I found this book too cliche. Chapter 1 was interesting, the succeeding chapters were okay.
Kelsey is the female protagonist, she’s an accounting student but she really wants to become a writer (like me, you got me there, Kelsey, that’s why I struggled to finish the book). Ethan is the male protagonist, he has already finished college and is taking over Sara‘s, Ethan’s cousin and Kelsey’s bestfriend, bar for a year. I guess you already see where this is going? Yep, they fell in love yada yada yada.
The characters annoy the poop out of me. Ethan is an asshole and Kelsey is stupid. Sure, I have already seen a man who likes a girl one minute and then the next minute he acts like he doesn’t, but I haven’t seen a girl who gives a man more than two chances when it comes to dating. Does love really makes you stupid? I mean no offense people because I haven’t been in love before.
“I don’t want to play games, Kelsey. I want you and only you.”
Aw, that’s so sweet of you, Ethan. Guess what happened next? Yep, they had SEX! The man just practically poured out his feelings and the next thing they did is to have sex. OH GOSH. I was so disappointed!
Ugh! I’m so done with this book. I don’t want to write another paragraph about how this book disappointed the shite out of me.
It really saddens me that this book didn’t work for me. I mean, I really thought I’d enjoy it but no. Just no.
