Review | Before We Kiss

Hott Synopsis:

Sam Ridge is not usually called a coward but right now he should be. He’s got only four weeks left to pull off an amazing party for his company’s top clients and he’s avoiding the party planner!

One may think that a star kicker in the NFL would man up and get the job done, but his mother and Dellina Hopkins are each able to make him run. His mother due to her “openness” and over-sharing and Dellina because of the one blissful night he spent with her.

But, since Dellina Hopkins is the best – and only – party planner in town Sam needs to make amends and get this party started. Except, Dellina’s not what he expected. Can Sam learn to trust – especially when his mother and ex-wife are running around town?

Hott Review:

What I liked: OMG! With the exception of some very frank discussions this book was amazing! I LOVED Sam. He’s so adorable and Dellina is so very sweet and open. I loved the conflict and the ties to family and community that tied this book together.
(I’m also thinking I need to read Lark’s book 😉 )
What I didn’t like: I keep waiting for Mayor Marsha to come visit me! My door is open!!!

  • Hi Gina,

    I was wondering if you might be interested in reviewing my middle grade novel, Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen?

    Short summary:  Blending adventure, humor and mystery with a strong female lead, Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen is a modern fairy tale about a young girl from the American South who finds herself lured to a foreign land where she falls into the clutches of an evil witch.  Liberty (“Libby”) must rely upon her wits and courage (as well as the help of some unusual friends) if she hopes to save not only herself, but also those dearest to her.

    I don’t know if you’ve nabbed a copy during past kindle giveaways or not, but if you haven’t, I’d be thrilled to send you a copy in exchange for a review!
