A first kiss is hard to forget—and Kelsey Brian’s just walked into the bar where she works and isn’t planning to leave anytime soon. It figures. With her last semester of college finally here, Kelsey can’t wait to finish the year smoothly and start a new chapter. She doesn’t need to drive over yet another bump in the road.

Ethan Connelly has spent most of his adult life trying to be accepted by his father, and now he has the chance to make him proud. He’s also just stepped into another chance with the girl who got away. Deciding who matters most to him isn’t an easy choice. If he picks his father, he’ll lose her again—if he picks her, everything he’s worked for will be for nothing.

Can Kelsey learn to trust him, or will Ethan’s secret of why he’s really back in town tear them apart?

My Review:

Just One Kiss was such a sweet and hilarious book to read. It was just one of those books that I could not put down. From the cover to the intriguing synopsis, Jamie Wagner did a good job at bringing a story of two individuals whose paths have crossed again after not seeing each other for a years. 

From the very beginning we get to meet Kelsey Brian, an accounting student who is working at her friend's bar the Black Cove. Working for her friend has always been great for Kelsey, since she gets to get away with being late..etc. But now her friend is going away to Europe for a year and a new manager is coming to take over. Not knowing who is going to be the temporary boss, Kelsey goes to work one day only to find out that her old crush her friend's cousin, Ethan Connelly is going to be the new boss. Their first encounter is filled with surprises and the a few memorable moments that immediately set the tone for the rest of the story. Some are funny others are painful for at one of the characters, but that alone made me keep reading. As Kelsey is trying to decide what to do with her future, she quickly relies on Ethan as the two start to spend more time together at inside and outside of work. Soon the two are telling each other about their pasts and what is keeping them from moving forward. 

For Ethan Connelly coming back to visit his cousin has been a bit stressful for him. Ever since his uncle inheritated the bar, Ethan's father has been after it. Now he has sent Ethan back to town to do some dirty work for him. Though Ethan knows that what he is doing is wrong, it doesn't stop him from doing any favors for his father all to get his approval. But when he gets back to town, he sees Kelsey again and his plans completely change. Whether he decides to keep helping his dad now is all up in the air, especially when Kelsey is involved. 

I really liked the overall story of Just One Kiss, it has the perfect mixture of drama and sweet moments between the characters that works. It is evident from the beginning that the two have an instant chemistry that slowly grows throughout the book. Although their love is not instant, we do get to that point in the end. Another thing that I love about the story was the secondary characters, they were a constant throughout the story and I am excited to read their own separate book in the future. All in all, if you are looking for a romantic story filled with hilarious scenes and a surprising ending at the end, then this is definitely a book worth checking out. :)
