Jeremy Engel has managed to claw his way back from the dark depths of personal hell. He's now a successful comic book author and working on his second book. But when the woman he met while on a rare getaway--the one he hasn't been able to forget--opens a shop in his neck of the woods, he thinks he's even learned to trust and hope again.

Elizabeth Desmond is determined to make a success of her shop in the Adirondack tourist town of Lake Placid. And just when she thinks it can't get any better, the mysterious stranger she kissed on a moonlit resort beach walks back into her life.

But when Jeremy's old demons return, it's up to Elizabeth to show him they're not so different after all...

GJRA. This was ok, not a book you can't put down. Each time I picked it back up to read I had to go back to prior page to remember the story. NO excitement but a good story. GJRA

Jeremy and Elizabeth are from very different backgrounds. But they both have demons in their pasts. A chance encounter on a beach started everything. I really enjoyed this story. Elizabeth was a very lovable character and I loved her work ethic. Jeremy was a wonderful character as well. His flaws and past added so much to the person he had become. His grandmother was a hoot as well. Great book!

This story covers some serious issues affecting many people’s lives either directly or indirectly. These issues are dealt with in a sympathetic but not pitying manner, making it clear that the pressures which can lead to such problems are different for different people and that there really is no cure from them. However, don’t assume that makes it a boring or too sad tale, it is anything but! Superbly written it is an engaging story which encourages people to be honest about any medical issues and shows love really can help. Jeremy Engel is now a reclusive but very successful comic book author. In the past a horrendous motorbike accident left him in severe pain and, determined not to be reliant on painkillers, he drank too often and became an alcoholic. He’s a member of AA and has avoided alcohol for more than four years but acknowledges that it would only take one drink for all that to be ruined. He goes for a solitary walk on the beach near the hotel where he’s meeting with his family and finds a young lady sat alone enjoying the tranquility. She’s Elizabeth and has recently started her own sports shop and online store. She has a history of trying to control her life and appearance by obsessive calorie counting and taking excessive exercise. This is something she still struggles with when worried or stressed in anyway. The two talk, share an explosive kiss but then go their separate ways without exchanging any contact details or even their full names. Neither can stop thinking about the other. When a further chance encounter occurs will they be able to resist each other? Can they be honest about their issues? Can love find a way for them to be together? Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley too, for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Tough Issues & Very Well Done!! Jolyse Barnett tackles two tough issues in His Kiss; alcoholism and image/weight. She goes to enough depth that you can easily understand the struggles Jeremy goes through and the nervousness of letting control over his environment and what could happen, as Elizabeth struggles with her image and her feelings of her perception versus how her family sees her. Then Jolyse also adds the complexity of two very different economic backgrounds. Elizabeth is quite wealthy and Jeremy's family is blue color comfortable, but had to work for everything with a zinger of an climax to the story. Well done! Received an ARC for an honest and fair review.

His Kiss by Jolyse Barnett was a very confusing book for me. I am a reader that needs emotions in a book – I need to feel what the book characters are experiencing. And while the basic story of this book was an interesting on, my problems with the book already started with the way the author is telling the story. Throughout the whole book, I felt distant from the acting persons, which made it impossible for me to connect with them. In addition, I feel that the author is losing the focus of the story at times, by getting to involved in the secondary characters in the Novel. I never thought that I would live to see the day that I complain about to much information. Normally I am the one always talking about not enough depth for characters. But in this case the balance felt of. The reader learned by far too much about the secondary characters and the main subjects of the book were lost somewhere along the storyline. For me – it felt like I was reading a third book of a series and the author tried to remind the reader of what had happened in the books before – it felt like I was reading a 2nd book of a series and the author tried too hard to remind the reader of what had happened in the book before. So unfortunately I cannot give a high praise and this will not be one of my favorites – but as I said – the storyline itself wasn’t bad and the rest might be only my issues.

This. Story. Wow, it will break your heart a little, but after all the turmoil, it will put it back together again, and make you believe in a little better tomorrow. The chemistry Elizabeth and Jeremy have, is off the charts. It is like a fairy tale, the sizzle between them palpable and obvious for all to see. They are so perfect together, they make each other to believe there's a new hope and future for them, too. But they have obstacles, some serious obstacles. They see and recognize in each other's eyes the broken soul. She is struggling with an eating disorder, he is recovering alcoholic, but that is not all they have to face and overcome. There's the secrets, his career, and her family's past that is entwined into his family's past, there's his broken heart from a past relationship, and how it will effect in their relationship and future. Their feelings for each other are so real, raw, and fragile. Every step they take forward, they have another wall they have to climb over. Is love enough, or are there too many obstacles, too much drama, and tragedy, can they survive? Summer in New York series has left me breathless with the first two installments. The stories are raw, make you think, and touch your heart with the serious issues that have been brought up in the mix of the beautiful love stories. I can't wait to read the next one... ~ Five Spoons

It’s hard to write a romance story about two damaged people and have it remain romantic. But in this story the author does it in a way that works out really well. They were from very different backgrounds and they had more in common than they didn’t. Elizabeth Desmond and Jeremy Engel both battle addictions. Jeremy is a recovering alcoholic and Elizabeth battles an eating disorder. Both are total opposites. She is rich and he grew up struggling for everything he had. When Elizabeth met Jeremy at the hotel where her grandparents celebrated their anniversary, she knew he was something special. But she was afraid of getting involved with someone after her last relationship. She wanted more than just someone to merge bank accounts with. Elizabeth dreamed of a relationship like her parents had; romantic, exciting and fun. Jeremy had no idea the woman he found on the beach staring up at the stars would change his life. Prior to meeting her, he was pretty much a recluse. He didn’t socialize very often and never had anyone come to his house. Would she be the one to finally help him get over the girl who broke his heart? He was her missing piece. All she had to do was convince him he deserved her, not just for the summer or a year, but for a lifetime of love.

What a beautifully written, emotionally charged, honest and realistic story. Elizabeth and Jeremy both have had hard lives that they struggled with to get under control. When they met one night on the beach, something clicks and sparks fly. Yes, they have a physical attraction but also an emotional one. I also enjoyed reading about the other characters from the previous books. A great addition to the Summer in New York series. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
