Review: About That Kiss by Jill Shalvis

About That Kiss: A Heartbreaker Bay Novel by [Shalvis, Jill]

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 Malone wanted to commission a present for his sister’s birthday, but Kylie refuses to help in order to avoid any contact with the sexy alpha that didn’t call or come around after they kissed that one time. But when she finds out the one thing she had left from her grandfather has gone missing, she has to swallow her pride and offer a trade in exchange for his help.
The one thing Joe is not counting on is that Kylie Masters is a hands-on kind of girl and she’ll tag along during his investigation. The more time they spend together, the more difficult it will be to resist his attraction to the feisty woodworker.
This is the fifth installment of the Heartbreaker Bay series and, though it can be read as a standalone, I felt I was missing a part of the story as I haven’t read book #4. That said, the book is well written, fun and dynamic as most of Ms. Shalvis’ work and it makes for an enjoyable read.
As with the other characters in this series, Joe and Kylie are good natured and loving people with their own issues that will create the conflicts they’ll have to overcome in order to find their HEA.
One thing I completely loved about this book was the movie taglines at the beginning of each chapter. Being a movie lover, it was a great exercise to figure out the few I didn’t remember from top of my head.
