PLAYING WITH FIRE . . .

Five years ago, Audrey Tanner flung caution to the wind and herself into the arms of an emerald-eyed bad boy biker she met at the White Pine Asparagus Festival. Two blissful weeks together convinced her that Kieran Callaghan was The One-until The One blew town without a word, leaving her brokenhearted. Now, starting a new job at the new Harley Davidson showroom, Audrey is floored to meet her new boss: Kieran. He's still hot as hell, but she won't fall for his sexy smile again. This time, she's calling the shots.

. . . OR PLAYING FOR KEEPS?

Kieran never thought he'd return to White Pine, Minnesota, much less see Audrey again. Gorgeous and smart as ever, she's just as irresistible as he remembered. She still doesn't know why he had to leave-or that he's missed her every day since. But he can't deny he wants more than the no-strings fling Audrey proposes. As things between them heat up, Kieran must choose between the secret he's sworn to keep and the woman he never stopped loving . . .

A staid life gets a makeover in the entertaining second White Pine contemporary (after A Kiss to Build a Dream On). Beautiful, modest Audrey Tanner has lost her job; her financial situation is dire, and her love life is nonexistent. She scrambles for a new job at a Harley-Davidson showroom, only to learn that her new boss is none other than Kieran Callaghan, the man she believed was her soul mate until he left her. Audrey, formerly a gym teacher, feels way out of her league dressing the part of a Harley model, but soon she finds that her daring attire gives her newfound confidence and inner strength. Audrey and Kieran’s chemistry lights up the pages, but Audrey, certain that her heart will break a second time, holds back, as does Kieran, who is haunted by a terrible secret. A cast of delightful secondary characters, including Audrey’s well-meaning but controlling sister, add wonderful flavor, while a cagey high school student provides intrigue. This determined and lovable heroine and her reformed bad boy will capture readers’ hearts. Agent: Susanna Einstein, Einstein Thompson Agency. (Aug.)

Read my full Review here : http://jeri-ryan.wix.com/jerisbookattic#!And-Then-He-Kissed-Me-by-Kim-Amos/cu6k/559bd8910cf2e0b7612ca577 For more Reviews check out my Blog http://jeri-ryan.wix.com/jerisbookattic#!blog/cwcx and like my Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/JerisBookAttic The tension between these two people is amazing. For me it was rollercoaster of feelings. Right at the beginning there was this very moment that got me so hard. The man has a great aura . Everytime he speaks I thought he stands right next to me . A thrilling character. In contrast the woman was like a martyr. She doesn't need a big sister. She got her life on her own. A very independent and strong character The end was just incredible...As the reader I just wasn't able to control my emotions anymore. I cried so hard and wasn't able to stop -which just shows how emotional and raw and touching this book is!So everybody who is searching for this kind of reaction after reading a book- you're welcome to join the "And Then He Kissed Me" fan club.

In most of my reviews I talk about how fabulous (or not until the end) the hero is but in And Then He Kissed Me Audrey is definitely the star. Don't get me wrong, I love Kieran and I applaud the changes he's made to his life since leaving White Pine five years ago. But it is the changes that Audrey is going thru now, thanks to losing her job and becoming a Harley model, that are truly awesome and fun. While out of her comfort zone in the new job, especially once she realizes that Kieran is her new boss, standing in front of everyone in sexy leather biker clothes gives her a certain attitude that bleeds over into her every day life. Watching her come out of her shell and shine is an absolute treat. But it isn't always easy. Besides dealing with Kieran (which would be enough on its own), her controlling sister is pushing against not only her changes but her being anywhere near Kieran again. Having it been the two of them for so long, it definitely isn't easy for Audrey to deal with her sister's attitude. But as she finds a new stride, I cheered for her every step of the way. It's glorious and she's definitely one of my favorite heroines of all time - her opening comment to Kieran sealed it for me ... but you have to read it to find out what she said (or look at reviews on Goodreads) :) I also loved how vulnerable both Audrey and Kieran are in this situation. Both of them have to come to terms with the past and decide if they are going to let it impact their future - Audrey on whether she can trust Kieran again and Kieran on whether he can be vulnerable but more importantly if he can reveal a secret that will hurt Audrey. It's not an uncommon dance in romances but one that Amos handles exceptionally well. It's no surprise that I didn't read the first story in this series, A Kiss to Build a Dream On. Luckily this is one of those times when it didn't matter, although I'm definitely adding it to my TBR pile. With fantastic primary and secondary characters and an emotional storyline, And Then He Kissed Me is a must read and Amos is an author to watch. She has two more White Pine stories this year and I can't wait! (Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review)

Emotions jump off the beginning pages of the latest novel by author Kim Amos and don’t stop until the very end. Amos has created a heroine readers will adore. She has spunk, drive and attitude with raw emotions mixed in. She learns to stand up for herself and what she wants. The characters are well-developed, realistic and easy to like. The tension between the heroine and the hero is intriguing. The story moves quickly, but holds your attention. The small town atmosphere comes to life through the author’s rich descriptions and vivid details. The easy flow of the story draws you in, while the enchanting tale of second chance love captives you. While this is the second installment in the White Pine Novel series, AND THEN HE KISSED ME can be read as a standalone. New readers won’t be left in dark if this is their first visit to White Pine. This is a perfect summer read for the romance lover in you. FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me as part of the author’s Release Day Tour Blitz in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.

Release Blitz, Review & Giveaway: And Then He Kissed Me by Kim Amos http://wp.me/p3d0RZ-2Mj Publication Date: July 28, 2015 Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ Donna Rated: 4 Stars REVIEW: This was an enjoyable romance surrounding a young woman who lived her life trying to be what others thought she should be until life threw her a curveball. Kieran has also transformed himself from what he once was and it was fun to watch them dodge and parry their way back together. I was pleased to have a dangerous mystery thrown in as it added a nice edge to the story. I enjoyed this book and look forward to seeing how Audrey’s sister finds herself in the next one. *Review copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
