πŸ”– REVIEW BLITZ πŸ”– Just One Kiss by Carly Phillips

Just One Kiss by Carly Phillips

Release Date: August 16, 2022
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

It was supposed to be one fun night of hot sex.

It turned into a second. Then a third.

Now Mother Nature is having the last word—with a secret baby surprise!

Jade Dare has done everything in her power to overcome her mother’s unstable influence. Changed her name. Became a success. Vowed never to risk passing on the potential for inherited pain. What has it gotten her? One fiancΓ© who wanted her for money. A second who cheated on her with his brother’s wife.

Now she's sworn off men. Or at least off serious relationships. But when the chance to indulge in a one night stand with a man she’s secretly fantasized about arrives, she jumps in. Only to land heart-first into a case of the feels she can’t bring herself to trust.

Knox Sinclair always suspected he liked his brother’s fiancΓ© a little too much, that’s why he kept his hands to himself. But with ties broken and Jade all too willing, a no-strings-attached night sounds like a damned good idea.

Except one night isn’t nearly enough. But while Knox is busy convincing Jade they have a chance at forever, the past is planning one last parting shot. 

My Review:

It’s through similar circumstances that brings the owner of a football team and an event coordinator together in Phillips’s sixth book in The Kingston Family Series with Just One Kiss. This sizzling and steamy romance will leave you wanting for more!

At the beginning of the story we get to meet Knox Sinclair, owner of a football team, the New York Warriors. Ever since his dad left him the team, he has working really hard to make it successful. But that lead his full attention to the team and was unaware of what his ex-wife was doing behind his back. Although he is over his ex, Knox still carried a grudge against what she did to him. Being surrounded by all-things bridal is not what he expected to be, but since his younger sister is getting married, he’ll do anything to be for her. Even if it means facing the event coordinator that their brother let down.

There was always a part of him that liked Jade Dare, but she was off-limits while she was with his brother and Knox was married. Yet, neither of them are attached and he suddenly finds himself wanting to spend time with her. There is so much to Jade that not everyone knows about, there is also an attraction that neither of them can deny. But she is a one night with no-strings-attached agreement that Knox quickly is starting to hate the more he gets to know her better. She is it for him, he just needs to convince her to give them a fair shot.

As the event coordinator at the Meridian Hotel, Jade Dare, is in charge of overseeing every single event that the hotel hosts and that includes weddings. She gets to spend time with brides, knowing that she might get to have that experience one day. After her fail attempts at happiness and her latest relationship ending the way it did. Jade has made a point to go on a man fast. No more relationships while she tries to get to know herself better. Who she was’t expecting to see again is Knox Sinclair. He is handsome as always, but there is interest in his eyes when he looks at her. Spending one night with him should have been enough, but it isn’t. She is falling for him, but she is afraid of how he is going to react with her news and their future together.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Just One Kiss, Phillips manages to deliver a great story that brings attention to mental health and how the characters deal with it in the book. Both of the main characters have been hurt and they are trying to move on as best as they can. But brought together by a wedding and now Jade has to face the attraction that she has always had for Knox. Her past has left her with abandonment issues, while Knox takes his time to understand her and what her needs are. Until a turn of events alters their lives and they are faced with their past once again. I loved the ending, as always we get a tease of what the next book in the series is going to be about and I can’t wait to read it! :)
