About the Author
Growing up in locations like Botswana and Venezuela gave me quite the taste for adventure and my love for romances began when my mother shoved one into my hands in a desperate attempt to keep me quiet during TV coverage of the Wimbledon tennis finals!When I wasn't consuming books by the bucketload, I could be found pretending to be a damsel in distress or running around solving mysteries and writing down my adventures. As a teenager, I wrote countless episodes of TV detective dramas so the hero and heroine would end up together every week. As an adult, I worked in a library to conveniently continue consuming books by the bucketload, until realising I was destined to write contemporary romance and romantic suspense myself. I live in leafy Surrey in the UK, a book-devouring, slightly melodramatic, romance-writing sassy heroine with my very own sexy hero husband! You can visit my website at: http://www.evedevon.com/

This is the first book I have read by Eve .. it features Seraphina (Sephy) the ‘baby’ of the King siblings. It can easily be read as a standalone. There has been previous discord in the King dynasty and Sephy seems determined to make a living on her own to support her five year old daughter Daisy instead of accepting hand-outs from the family. She embarks on her lingerie business adamant she will make it a success, she enlists the help of her best friend Luke .. she asks him if he will model in a photo shoot with her to promote the sexiness of her brand. In return he wants her to be his fake fiancée when his foster parents visit. The sexual tension sizzles between these two from the outset and mounts to a crescendo .. who wouldn’t love a bit of Luke! Not only is he a rich video game maker he is thoughtful, caring and blatantly idolises Sephy. I did get a bit frustrated with the way she kept him at arms length due to her own issues but I guess that adds to the story. Great fun, easy to read I really enjoyed it and will explore the other two books in the series, they may just fill in the background plot. Thanks to the author, Netgalley and Harper Impulse for the opportunity to read this in exchange for my honest opinion.
I felt like I started this book at a disadvantage. I didn’t know the characters or situations but was dropped into everything while it was already happening, and no explanations were forthcoming. This feeling continued through the book when incidents from the past and character traits were referred to, as though I already had full knowledge of any backstory. Specifically, a letter the main character, Sephy, received from her father was referenced a lot although the full content was never divulged, and Sephy’s reluctance to get married didn’t seem very reasonable as I never knew the reasons, and she seemed a bit irrational about it all, especially given how lovely Luke was to her. Because I felt as though I had information missing, I didn’t connect to the characters as I’d hoped, because the blurb really drew me in, and I didn’t really buy into Luke and Sephy’s chemistry as it seemed to come from nowhere. I later found out that this is a book (possibly number 3) in a series, although the blurb and cover didn’t mention those, and I can only conclude that it would have been better for me to have read the books in order so that I had access to all of the backstory and any slow build to lay the groundwork for this friends to lovers storyline. I think the majority of the story was set in Britain, and I definitely spotted some Brit-specific words but, for the most part, when the characters spoke to each other, they sounded American. I enjoy both British and American books but like to have a good sense of setting rather than somewhere in the general mid-Atlantic. While I believe I would have enjoyed this book a lot more had I read it in order with the rest of the series, and would definitely recommend other readers start at the beginning, I wouldn’t read back because I didn’t always like her family in this one. There was one scene later in the book where they seemed entirely unreasonable. But, again, maybe hat is a continuation of previous fraught relationships. The ending to ‘It’s In His Kiss’, though, was a satisfying one, and Luke really came into his own in the last 15%. I am also left with an interest in where Sephy and Luke go from here. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
