That First Kiss Release and Review!!!!



Blurb: 

Mercurial and charming, Tate Larson is a rising author and playboy who has a different woman on his arm every night of the week. Focused on his work, Tate has no plans to settle down any time soon. That is until he meets his pretty new assistant, Piper Donovan. 

Desperate to escape the promise of backwater living, Piper ditched her Alabama hometown and never looked back. That was almost two years ago. Now that she is out of a job and her bank account is running on fumes, she’s desperate to find a job, fast. She finds the break she is searching for when she lands a position at Bookish Temptations. A little dancing and a lot of drinks with the girls seem the perfect way to celebrate. After a brief but explosive encounter with a man she was never supposed to see again turns out to be the same man she will be bending over backwards to please, her every instinct tells her to run. But when running means leaving the life she has struggled so hard to create, Piper decides her only option is to continue working for the devastatingly sexy Tate Larson...even if it kills her. 

Unable to deny their growing attraction, they struggle to keep their distance in a relationship that requires anything but.



My Review

This book was crazy hot.  Literally from the moment I started it, till the moment I finished it, I was primed and tuned completely into these two characters!  Tate is a jackass, but the way he comes full circle is fascinating!  Piper is a bit of a child at times, but she too seems to grow up and mature pretty quickly.

Piper needs to find a job fast, she is running out of money quickly and she gets an opportunity that pays well and has some killer perks.  Only catch, her boss is a tyrant apparently.  She overlooks this and decides to celebrate with her friends.  Clubbing is on the agenda and apparently so is a handsome blonde God she meets there.  Needless to say, things get hot and heavy and she ends up bumping and grinding with him on and off the dance floor.

Tate is a closed off, self absorbed ass who happens to be the man Piper got busy with in the club's bathroom.  Things are immediately tense between them and Tate fires her.  Literally fires her within minutes of her meeting him.  Nice guy right?  Turns out, he kinda is.  He has had his heartbroken badly and he shuts out any human contact from the opposite sex.  If it isn't about sex, he isn't interested in getting to know you.  But Piper is under his skin.

This book has some funny moments and moments that make you want to cry.  It was the first book in a long time where the ex in someone's life wasn't a complete nightmare who was out to break them up.  She is actually super sweet and kinda funny.  I really enjoyed seeing that, it was a refreshing take on it.  We see Piper get close to another man named Tom, who is apparently dreamy as well, and yet she doesn't hurt him. She lets him go and he falls for her friend instead.  

It was nice to read a book where the tension was based on love and a small misunderstanding vs lust and life and death situations.  I enjoyed this book immensely!  Did I mention this book was HOT?  Because it was ridiculously hot....=)

I give it 4.5 lipsticks!  You need to buy this one.  It's a nice pallet cleanser for those of you who like Crossfire and 50 Shades kind of drama.
