eARC Book review: About That Kiss (Heartbreaker Bay #5) by Jill Shalvis


Available January 23,2018
eARC Provided by publisher through Edelweiss

When love drives you crazy . . .

When sexy Joe Malone never calls after their explosive kiss, Kylie shoves him out of her mind. Until she needs a favor, and it’s a doozy. Something precious to her has been stolen and there’s only one person with unique finder-and-fixer skills that can help—Joe. It means swallowing her pride and somehow trying to avoid the temptation to throttle him—or seduce him.

the best thing to do . . .

No, Joe didn’t call after the kiss. He’s the fun time guy, not the forever guy. And Kylie, after all she’s been through, deserves a good man who will stay. But everything about Kylie makes it damned hard to focus, and though his brain knows what he has to do, his heart isn’t getting the memo.

… is enjoy the ride.

As Kylie and Joe go on the scavenger hunt of their lives, they discover surprising things about each other. Now, the best way for them to get over “that kiss” might just be to replace it with a hundred more.

Joe and Kylie have the same set of friends. They hang out in some of the same places so when Kylie and Joe kiss it's explosive and a bit scary. Then Joe seemed to pretend it never happened. Hooboy! Unfortunately Kiley needs Joe's help when something important to her gets stolen. She's rather pretend he doesn't exist. Joe might have appeared like he didn't care about the kiss but he cared more than he could afford to. Avoiding Joe seems like a good idea to Kylie until she needs him and something that seems silly turns serious.  There isn't much we know about Kylie or Joe before this book.  Both have some serious secrets and hang ups. Joe sees himself as someone who doesn't deserve love and Kylie doesn't trust it. It was fun to watch these two fall for each other and see the the other characters from previous books popping up and adding to the story. As always Jill Shalvis will make you laugh often and maybe cry a tear or two. She puts you in the story with her vivid characters that draw you in and make you want to hang out a while.
