“Simple yet effective, this story is one of my favorites in the series.”
~ Under the Covers

Jill Shalvis has certainly found her stride with this series now. While I liked the first few books in the series, I really feel like things are starting to feel like her older titles which I simply adore. ABOUT THAT KISS is the fifth book in the Heartbreaker Bay series and it features Joe and Kylie. At first, I wasn’t sure I was going to like Joe. I don’t really know why that is. I just went into the book thinking that he was going to be one of those stuck-up heroes so made a move on the heroine and would forever hold that scorching kiss between them forever. However, I quickly changed my mind about him. Joe was great. Sweet and fun, he turned out to be a great hero for Kylie.

Kylie was a character that I immediately liked. She’s a do-it-yourself kind of girl and I really liked that about her. Although she has be persuade, she also doesn’t allow people to walk over her so when Joe comes in, intending to purchase a mirror she made for his sister, Molly, Kylie is quick to turn him down. It’s only when she realized she needs his assistance that she goes hunting for him.

Simple yet effective, this story is one of my favorites in the series. I thought it was upbeat and fun, without trying too hard. It had the perfect balance of heart and humor and I really enjoyed the banter between these two. With each book in this series, I am beginning to enjoy the series more and more. So I’m confident that Shalvis has found the key to writing a successful novel.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

Kylie is the best! I loved her instantly! I agree, too, that it feels like Shalvis has found that perfect place when it comes to this series. Although, I often feel like it takes her a few books to hit her stride in her series.
