When love drives you crazy . . . When sexy Joe Malone never calls after their explosive kiss, Kylie shoves him
out of her mind. Until she needs a favor, and it’s a doozy. Something precious
to her has been stolen and there’s only one person with unique finder-and-fixer
skills that can help—Joe. It means swallowing her pride and somehow trying to
avoid the temptation to throttle him—or seduce him.the best thing to do . . .No, Joe didn’t call after the kiss. He’s the fun time guy, not the forever guy.
And Kylie, after all she’s been through, deserves a good man who will stay. But
everything about Kylie makes it damned hard to focus, and though his brain
knows what he has to do, his heart isn’t getting the memo.… is enjoy the ride.

As Kylie and Joe go on the scavenger hunt of their lives, they discover
surprising things about each other. Now, the best way for them to get over
“that kiss” might just be to replace it with a hundred more.

Favorite Quotes:


Do me a favor and don’t compare me to the women you date… Or whatever you do with them. We all know the only reason you even remember their names is that you take them to the coffee shop in the morning and then read what gets written on their cup.


She told me not to mistake her silence for weakness, that no one plans a murder out loud.


I actually like being single. I get to be selfish with my time and personal space. I can leave the top off the toothpaste and sleep like a starfish.


“Don’t worry honey,” someone said from behind her in line. Eighty-something Mrs. Winslow, who lived on the third floor of the building. The older woman smiled knowingly. “He’ll appreciate your toys. But remember, it’s all fun and games until someone loses the key to the handcuffs.”


I know diamonds are supposed to be a girl’s best friend… but then leggings happened. Leggings are the new diamonds.


My Review:


This was my first Jill Shalvis experience, silly me, I have been missing out. I adored her clever wry humor, breezy storytelling, and endearingly flawed and quirky characters.   About That Kiss was a delightfully entertaining and engaging read that was easy to follow and never failed to hold my interest. Despite being the fifth book in a series, the story stood alone and on solid terra firma.   And I while I never felt lost or confused without previous knowledge, I am sure I would enjoy going backward and acquainting myself with the earlier stories of this lively and alluring group. Each chapter was titled with a popular line from a movie that never failed to bring a smirk to my face if one wasn’t already in place. More, please.
