Meet the Author
When I was young, I wanted to be a lawyer when I grew up. But then I changed my mind because being a famous, yet totally undercover secret agent would be much cooler. I looked into it, but there weren’t many job opportunities. I concluded that maybe I should just marry well. I fell deeply in love with Agent Mulder, but he already had Scully, and I don’t share.
So, instead, I became a writer. Now I get to be all of those things and so many more.

Friends to lovers. These kind of romances have a way of making me say, "Aw!" when I probably wouldn't, lol. How well the couple knows each other comes from years being around each other. They've celebrated each other's successes, offered hugs and a shoulder to lean on during the bad times, made it a point to hang out "just because". Dean and Kat's friendship had all of that. It was developed, appreciated, needed, and wanted. The change in their feelings for each other didn't happen overnight; they were a long time in development, even though it seemed like they changed because it was New Year's Eve. Despite the time they'd been together as friends though, it was surprising to see how hesitant Kat was to talk about her past and her family with Dean. What I liked was the time that passed. See, during New Year's, Dean and Kat's relationship turned about ninety degrees. It felt like it had done an about face, but it hadn't. The remaining ninety degrees would remain as long as Kat didn't open up completely to Dean. Thank God she had the sense to; she would have missed out on the most amazing thing ever if she hadn't. One Kiss is a well-rounded, short story that's perfect to read during a lunch break, between appointments, or before bed. The characters are engaging and stubborn, and Dean is wonderfully determined to see their relationship change for the better. ***Received from Bippity Boppity Book for an honest review***
I love the premise for this series, to me nothing is hotter or more sensual and romantic than a kiss… a Good Kiss: not too hard or soft, not too wet or sloppy, you can tell much about a man by his kiss. And Lisa Fox parlays that one kiss into a super sweet and fun story that is utterly engaging. Dean and Kat are best friends –but have never acted on any sort of romantic attraction. It’s New Year’s Eve, and while Dean has broken up with his girlfriend, Kat’s blind date was a failure. There’s just one problem – they don’t want to be the only two people unkissed at midnight. Their kiss leads to more – they have ignored or denied the attraction between them for so long that it is a source of surprise and excitement- and they rush off to explore. But, Dean is far more open about his feelings for Kat – and it freaks her out. They retreat to separate corners to deal with all of the change – but when Dean goes to look for Kat – she’s not there. A lovely story of missed connections and miscommunications with some fun and funny characters who are completely aware of the dangers a relationship failure in the romantic sense could have on a friendship that is so completely important to them both. These two already know each other, and enjoy the company, but they have to decide if that one kiss will be the start of something new or a turning point to the friend zone. A short read that is perfect for a quick bite of fun and engaging romance, this is a wonderful start to a series of sweet, heartfelt romance.
