Review: Just One Kiss

Hott Synopsis:

At fourteen, Patience had a tremendous crush on an older guy. It seems he ruined her for everyone else because she just can’t find someone else who makes her feel the same way. But he disappeared into the night never to be seen again.

Until today.

Justice has returned and Patience feels like the years since they were last together were nothing. He’s everything she remembers and more.

She’d love to dive right in but first she only has one question – why did it take so long for him to come back to her.

Hott Review:

What I liked: I LOVED IT! I know. I say that about all of Susan Mallery’s books but this is absolutely one of my favorites! Ms. Mallery, as always, is a great writer but when I dig into this series I just feel like I’m transported into Fool’s Gold and I’m a part of their family.
What I didn’t like: There were a couple of moments that I thought it may be difficult to keep some of the characters straight in this book. If you’ve read the series you shouldn’t have a problem but if not there may be a few moments of wondering. Don’t worry though, they’re not important to the plot.
