Kelsey and Sarah have been friends since they were little. Sarah owns a bar that Kelsey works at while finishing her college education. Sarah is taking a year off to travel and her cousin Ethan will run the bar for her. Ethan kissed Kelsey when she was 15 and wants to start over with her. Secrets and lies keep popping up to give their relationship a hard time. Cute story that shows you what can happen when you are not honest with each other. Looking forward to the second book in this series.

Rating: 4.5/5 Just One Kiss was such a sweet and hilarious book to read. It was just one of those books that I could not put down. From the cover to the intriguing synopsis, Jamie Wagner did a good job at bringing a story of two individuals whose paths have crossed again after not seeing each other for a years. From the very beginning we get to meet Kelsey Brian, an accounting student who is working at her friend's bar the Black Cove. Working for her friend has always been great for Kelsey, since she gets to get away with being late..etc. But now her friend is going away to Europe for a year and a new manager is coming to take over. Not knowing who is going to be the temporary boss, Kelsey goes to work one day only to find out that her old crush her friend's cousin, Ethan Connelly is going to be the new boss. Their first encounter is filled with surprises and the a few memorable moments that immediately set the tone for the rest of the story. Some are funny others are painful for at one of the characters, but that alone made me keep reading. As Kelsey is trying to decide what to do with her future, she quickly relies on Ethan as the two start to spend more time together at inside and outside of work. Soon the two are telling each other about their pasts and what is keeping them from moving forward. For Ethan Connelly coming back to visit his cousin has been a bit stressful for him. Ever since his uncle inheritated the bar, Ethan's father has been after it. Now he has sent Ethan back to town to do some dirty work for him. Though Ethan knows that what he is doing is wrong, it doesn't stop him from doing any favors for his father all to get his approval. But when he gets back to town, he sees Kelsey again and his plans completely change. Whether he decides to keep helping his dad now is all up in the air, especially when Kelsey is involved. I really liked the overall story of Just One Kiss, it has the perfect mixture of drama and sweet moments between the characters that works. It is evident from the beginning that the two have an instant chemistry that slowly grows throughout the book. Although their love is not instant, we do get to that point in the end. Another thing that I love about the story was the secondary characters, they were a constant throughout the story and I am excited to read their own separate book in the future. All in all, if you are looking for a romantic story filled with hilarious scenes and a surprising ending at the end, then this is definitely a book worth checking out. :) ***ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.***

Ethan Connelly and Kelsey Brian shared a kiss as teenagers. She felt bad, since he had a girlfriend at the time. Years later, she broke up with her own boyfriend, when she caught him cheating with not 1 but 2 girls at the same time. Is it true once a cheater always a cheater? Now after 7 years, Ethan walks into the bar where she works. He has turned out smokin' HOT! Hot with a capital H! He is going to run the bar for her best friend and roommate, his cousin while she takes a world trip for about a year. Can Kelsey put up with his being close and not try to attack him? Ethan has always wanted Kelsey. Now he has an actual shot with her. Only keeping a terrbile secret from her and her roommate may have awful consequences. Can their new relationship bounce back from this? What is he gets caught? Kelsey is finally trusting a man again. She knows Ethan is hiding something from her. She just hopes it doesn't kill her when she finds out. She knows it is just a question of when, not if. She just hopes it is not another woman like before. Both of these characters have bad parents and can relate on that level. What I loved was the banter, the sexy times, and the struggle to resist! This is a great start to the Black Alcove series. I cannot wait to see what the author has for us in the next book! ***This ARC was given in return for an honest review only.

4+ Stars This is such a sweet, light-hearted read. The immaturity & naivete of the main couple made me laugh out loud! I look forward to seeing what happens with their best friends in book 2.
