A new adult romance from Entangled's Embrace imprint...

No kissing. No touching. And definitely no falling in love...

Armed with her besties, an embarrassing number of shots, and her list of 10 Wild Things To Do Before Adulthood, recent grad Cameron Lawson is partying it up before she starts her dream job at New York's biggest ad agency. Her last task? Hook up with a random guy. And while it's so not her style, the super-sexy guy sitting next to her is definitely game. No names. No details.
At least, that was the plan.

On her first day of work, Cameron discovers her hook-up is none other than Aidan Truitt-her new boss's boss. Talk about failing the "no fraternizing with coworkers" policy on an epic level. Especially when Aidan makes it clear their one night was only the beginning. Falling for him could cost her everything, but sometimes the only way to get what you want is by breaking a few rules...

My Review:

Aside from the beautiful cover, No Kissing Allowed was such a great read, filled with romance that had me rooting for the characters until the very end. 

Recent grad Cameron Lawson is ready to take on adulthood, but first she along with her friends make a list called 10 Wild Things To Do Before Adulthood, which gives them tasks to do before the big day when they get to go to their adult jobs. But with too many shots, Cameron gets an 11th task, and that is to kiss a stranger. Not willing to back down, she gives in after a stranger over hears them and volunteers for the task ahead. With absolute no idea who he is, Cameron kisses the stranger after feeling a stranger pull towards him. Things then start to move quickly as the two end up sleeping together. Waking up the next day with him naked scared Cameron and she flees away without turning back. Too bad things didn't quite end up going well for her on her first day at her job when she discovers that the stranger that slept with is non other than Aidan Truitt, her boss's boss!

Soon Cameron discovers that there is a “no fraternizing with coworkers” policy at her job, and she is willing to do anything from messing up. But Aidan seems to have other ideas as he is the one whose flirtatious moves are making Cameron give in to their attraction and take the next step. Aidan wasn't expecting to see Cameron ever again, but everything changes when she gets the job at the same company as him, and he is determined to show her that a relationship with him could work.

Although there are many stories with similar plots, No Kissing Allowed really pulled me in from the very start. It was such a page-turner for me that I couldn't put down. With that said, the major issue in the book is trying to get around the no fraternizing policy that is pulling the characters apart. Yet underneath all of that we truly get to know Aidan and learn more about his past. Both of the characters know that they can't take things further, but when Cameron invites him to meet his family that's when things start to move fast and go a bit downhill. That's also when we get to learn more about Cameron's past and her father's loss that really took its toll on her. Now they both have to fix their problems in order to move on. Overall the author does a great job with the pace of the story, we get character development, and the ending is just perfect for the story. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a new romance book filled with sweet scenes that are going to leave you wanting for more. :)
