Review- About that Kiss by Jill Shalvis


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.

About that Kiss by Jill Shalvis is the fifth book in her Heartbreaker Bay series. But no need to panic, all these books can be very easily read as stand alone. Usually I gobble up Jill Shalvis books within a matter of days, definitely within a week but this time life got in the way of reading and unfortunately, it took me a few months to finish this book. But that did not decrease my enjoyment of the story.

About that Kiss is the story of Joe and Kylie. Let's start with Kylie. Kylie is an artist who works with wood. When Joe needs a gift for his sister he goes to Kylie but an explosive kiss between them has increased the tension. Kylie in return needs Joe's help which brings in a little bit of a suspense to the plot.

I genuinely loved Kylie. She was a sweet person through and through and she only wanted to find the culprit behind her missing figurine. She was very much attracted to Joe but she knew that Joe was emotionally incapable of giving his heart to her. Joe, on the other hand, was a typical alpha male. He was strong and sexy and awkward at times. Frankly, he didn't know what to do with his feelings and emotions for Kylie.

Kylie and Joe made for a great pair who balanced each other out. They were there for each other in times of need and they always supported each other. It was difficult for Joe to be open with Kylie but he did finally end up succeeding.

We also get to meet the rest of the Heartbreaker Bay gang and see how everyone is doing. We get a few glimpses of the previous couples. The one to-be couple which was highlighted was Joe's little sister Molly and Joe's co-worker Lucas. I can already see the sparks and I'm really looking forward to their book. Overall, About that Kiss was an enjoyable read.
