About that Kiss by Jill Shalvis 

Publisher: Avon
Format: Paperback
Series: A Heartbreaker Bay
Pages: 349 pages
ISBN #: 0062741772 

 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.

First off, I want to thank this amazing publishing company for letting me part of this tour and for sending me this book for review. I was so surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Honestly, I was ready for a sappy love story but this book was so much more. It had thriller/suspense and of course love story all wrapped into one book. Now I don't usually read suspense thrillers, but I loved this one. It wasn't way too intense but I had to know what was going to happen next and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Alright, I'll be honest I actually yelled at this book a few times LOL! That right there makes a fantastic book in my opinion. 

The writing style of author Jill Shalvis is...hmm what's the right word...superb! I was hooked right away and the pacing was perfection. There was never a dull moment while reading this book and I haven't read a book that didn't have a little bit of a lull in awhile. 

Now my only main complaint about this book and the reason I'm not giving it a full five puppy rating is because I did see the ending coming. I'm not going to post spoilers, but it didn't catch me off guard as to who did it. Though at times, I wasn't so sure, so that's the reason I'm giving it such high praise. I loved reading this book, every single word and I can't wait to read the other books in this series and other books by this amazing author.   I did love the twists and turns of this book though and at one point I thought maybe just maybe I was wrong and it was the other love interest in the book.

As far as the characters go, I was rooting for the love interest the whole time. They are defiantly my OTP for this book and I really want to know what happened to them afterward. Each character, even the side characters in this book were well thought out and fleshed out. I need more from the other guys in this book as well. I'm hoping the other books in this series will have some of them as the main characters. I'm crossing my fingers LOL. 

All in all this book was fantastic and totally surprised me how much I enjoyed it. Let's put it this way, I have a few other books by this author and I'll be reading them as soon as I can! 

As I said above, I'm giving About that Kiss...
