Love At First Kiss

 

Genre: Military Romance, New Adult

Book Length (Est.): 234 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

**Full length and standalone new adult romance novel.**

One week spent together in a secluded cabin. Two people scarred by their pasts. Can a chance encounter lead to love? Or is it just a moment in time, insignificant once it passes.

Taylor has just returned from a romantic vacation with her boyfriend. But instead of an “I miss you!” text from him, she gets one that’s clearly meant for another woman. Which is the only reason she lets a hot stranger kiss her on the sidewalk. It’s the one and only time they’ll ever see each other, so why not?

Adam is used to living life on his own terms, from leaving home at 16 to join the military, to returning now, eight years later, to take care of his mother. After that, he’s packing up and leaving again. The last thing he planned on was falling in love with a girl at first sight. But there she was, and now Taylor’s all he can think of.

They may be perfect for each other, but they both have pasts that will not stay buried, no matter how much they want them to. And when Adam’s dark past comes crashing between them, one week seems like a very short time. Even if it is a week of love, pleasure, and belonging like neither of them has known before.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

One overly frustrated man. One crazily upset woman. One life changing kiss.

“All I ever lost is returned again in that kiss, along with the gift of al I ever wanted.”

Adam is mad at the world. He wanted out of the military, but he didn’t want it to end the way it did. He doesn’t enjoy being back home and around his family, but then again he’s never enjoyed that. Then out of all the gloom he sees a woman with a sadness in her eyes that he can’t help but want to kiss away, and so he does.

Taylor wants to believe that text was for, but she knows it wasn’t. No matter how she tries to twist it in her head or how her ex tries to spin it…she knows the truth, deep down she knows. And knowing will give her the strength to risk everything on a simple chance. A chance to find the mystery man who kissed her into oblivion.

Adam is a back and forth ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ type of story. Taylor can’t seem to make up her mind on what she wants or who she wants a life with. It’s a yo-yo of emotions. Add in all of Adam’s family drama, which I will warn you does not get solved in this book, and there’s just a whole mess of stuff going on. I only give the warning because it’s labeled as a standalone and yes Adam and Taylor’s story is complete, but there are things that happen in Adam’s family that are left incomplete. With how much emphasis is placed on his family you’ll want to know what happen; I know I did. You’ll more than likely have to read the next book in order to find out more.
