Ahhhh, sooo sweet! My only complaint with her books is that I read them way too quickly! She has a knack at creating male characters who are actually real bonefied men. I loved Garrett's character- the perfect ideal of a man- strong, hard-working, honest, trust worthy, and the way he raised his sisters and put them above his own needs, not to mention the way he loved his nephews! I loved how he and Nichole were drawn together like magnets! I highly recommend this cute little love story <3

I received this book courtesy of First Reads and Harlequin. Nichole has always been on the end of its not you, its me in relationships. So now her goal is to enjoy her single life and have fun. That all changes when she goes to her friends party and runs in a man with beautiful blue eyes who makes her forget everything. Garrett Carter is ready to get back into the swing of the things after having his head stuck in a book for the last couple years. He just didn't realize it would be at his friends welcome back party a beautiful read head with beautiful brown eyes. Not until the next morning do they realize that they do know each other because they both know Maeve, his sister, her best friend. They try to deny their feelings but their attraction becomes even stronger and sometimes you just have to give into your feelings.  The was my first Harlequin Kiss series book and I thought that it was very good. I liked the way that Mira progressed the story and how you really felt like you knew the main characters by the end of the book. The only part I found unrealistic was how the sister reacted to Nichole and Garrett being together. Other than that I really liked the book and would recommend it to other romance readers.

Once I started reading Once is Never Enough, I couldn&rsquo;t put it down. I became invested in what happened. Garrett and Nichole couldn&rsquo;t keep their hands off each other, but both were afraid to commit, for two very different reasons. I didn&rsquo;t know if they would ever get pull their heads out, and then Nichole did, but Garrett sure took his time. There was one point when I wanted to slap him, but he more than made up for it. If you like your romances sweet and fun with a whole lot of steamy, this book is definitely one you should read. Ms. Kelly is a new-to-me author and I plan on changing that very soon. She spun a tale that the reader can relate too and then she draws the reader in and traps them in her web. I&rsquo;m sitting here right now wanting Maeve&rsquo;s story, I just want more! I love the secondary crew in this story as well as the hero and heroine.

Rating: 5 Stars When her BFF, Maeve tells Nicole she needs to get back out in the dating pool, she isn't convinced. Then when she jokes about setting her up with her brother - &quot;The Panty Whisperer&quot;, Nikki is horrified. But her reservations fly out the window when she sees the blue-eyed stranger at a party. Garrett's attracted to her right off the bat, but it seems like more than his normal love 'em and leave 'em routine. Her flashing eyes and infectious laugh want to pull him in. Refreshingly, there's no artifice. She's not looking to get her claws into him. In fact, she doesn't even care that she doesn't know his name. He's &quot;Blue Eyes&quot;, and she's &quot;Red&quot;. They barely make it through the door at her place before they're pulling at each other's clothes. Fate has something else in mind though. They're *well* on their way to nirvana when he sees a picture of... well, himself - on the shelf. Okay, it's not just him, it's a picture of him and his sisters. He overheard her name at the party, and that helps to put things together. Nicole is actually &quot;Nikki&quot;, his sister's best friend. And Garrett has a rule about that - his sister's girlfriends are strictly off-limits. Nicole is horrified to find out that the man she fell off the wagon for is Garrett Carter. It's almost like the world is mocking her. Maeve was just joking about this very thing, and here she was - letting him 'whisper' her. Ironically enough, it was Maeve's voice she heard in her head telling her to go for it. A few awkward run-ins later, and they decide neither of them want to resist the attraction. She needs to date someone who won't promise her forever and bail - and he needs more than just a hook-up. They both want a finite relationship that will morph into a true friendship. Nicole has lost too many people through bad breakups - she won't allow Garrett to come between Maeve and herself. What neither of them count on is how their friendship could so easily be so much more. Garrett doesn't want forever, and Nicole is starting to want it despite herself. So she initiates the break. But life has other plans for the two of them... I think I'm well and truly addicted to Harlequin's KISS line. I'm not alone either - in her forward, Mira Lyn Kelly admits to the same. I just finished &quot;Once is Never Enough&quot;, and Mira's a big part of my new fixation. I gotta say - Wow. Reading the description made me think this would be all flirts and giggles, but that's just not true. Yes, it's funny and sweet, but Nicole and Garrett are such layered characters, I couldn't help but connect to them. Neither of them fall into the standard mold. It was a refreshing and honest story, one that I would definitely want to revisit later on. That puts this book in a very selective category - and it's well earned.
