Adorable, full of emotion, passion, and personal connection…Kissing Lessons is a wonderful read!
Audrey Miller always wears a smile and appears to the outside world like the eternal optimist, but when you get to know her she’s actually a realist living in the present and just getting through life day by day. After her mother died she took over as the head of household raising her younger siblings and she basically gave up on whatever dreams she may have had for herself. It isn’t until Ronan Walsh comes to town that he pushes her to see beyond the small town and what potential she has beyond serving coffee and selling crystals.
Ronan has spent his entire life pursuing education and furthering his career. Raised by his grandmother when his parents flaked out, he hasn’t put a lot of faith in romantic relationships, so ending up in a romance-themed town seems ironic at best. However, when he meets Audrey who not only intrigues him, but has similar views on life perhaps he might just take time to enjoy what Kissing Creek has to offer.
Kissing Lessons is filled with amazingly wild trivia, a super attractive man–ok he’s attractive on many levels, but mostly because he is attracted to her brain first and then her body. It is a huge aphrodisiac that he uplifts her confidence and see the potential within her, which uplifts the power within herself, and appreciates everything she is and does by just being her. He loves that she enjoys learning and knows random facts instead of being intimidated by her brain when he is a professor. Again, that is super sexy.
Audrey is a bit of a martyr, you will come to find, but aside from her trivia filled mind, her greatest strength is in loving her family and friends. She may be a realist, but she is also on the side of an optimist. Only a person who takes care of all of her siblings, deals with the public on a daily basis, is basically Cinderella with all of the chores, and doesn’t do things begrudgingly, yeah Audrey is allowed a little freak out when Ronan pushes her boundaries when he comes into town.
A seriously good read and one to make sure you squeeze in before the end of 2020!
Welcome to Kissing Creek, where everything has a romance-themed pun for a name and love is lurking around every corner…
Audrey Miller doesn’t believe in happily-ever-after, so she is definitely living in the wrong town. But she’s never getting out of Kissing Creek, because playing pseudo-mom for her younger siblings doesn’t leave time for much else. She’ll do anything to make sure they don’t end up stuck like she is, working as a barista in a college town, serving Pink Passion mochas with Chocolate Smooch donuts.
Then Ronan Walsh, a new young professor and walking cliché, right down to the elbow patches on his blazer, steps in for a coffee and into her life. She knows his type—intelligent and charming, yet sweet as a cinnamon roll, the sort of man she’s inevitably attracted to but is always out of her league. So why does someone like him have any interest in a worker bee with no future?
Her bland-as-oatmeal existence has nothing to offer, but Ronan’s temporary teaching position is only a stepping stone on his way to somewhere else. He isn’t here to put down roots, Audrey’s roots are firmly planted—neither of them is looking for love. And maybe that’s just perfect.
But in a small town called Kissing Creek, sometimes love can be impossible to avoid…
