The irresistible Sawyer brothers of Blushing Bay, North Carolina, are back in this enchanting novel from the USA Todaybestselling author of Forbidden Kisses and the Hero’s Welcome series.
Krista Nelson loves being a pediatric nurse. What she doesn’t love is her demanding boss and stressful workload. Fortunately, Krista knows she can count on a waterfront happy hour every Wednesday with her childhood best friend, Noah Sawyer, the one part of her life she never wants to change. But, like it or not, things are changing—because Krista can’t stop wondering what would happen if she grabbed Noah by the collar and kissed him like it was her job.
Bored of the superficial women he’s been dating, Noah’s putting his love life on hold so he can focus on his family’s high-end fishing business. Sure, there are moments when he’s tempted by Krista’s soft lips and killer smile—but her friendship is too important to Noah. How could he let himself jeopardize everything they share? The trouble is, if he doesn’t take the real risk of opening his heart, Noah might just let the perfect catch get away.
“She was tired of shrugging off her feelings. Tired of being in love with a man who viewed her as just one of the guys. Just plain tired.”
“Their entire history was written in the space between them.”
“His love for her was interwoven in his DNA.”
Stolen Kisses is the kind of book that doesn’t require a long review. It is the kind of book that just speaks for itself and sings to your heart.
Told from dual points of view, Stolen Kisses follows the story of Krista and Noah. Krista and Noah’s story is one that is from one of my favorite troupes. I love a good friends to lovers romance and this one had one incredible slow burn to it. Now, normally I am not a fan of the slow burn, but these two made it perfection. I loved the friendship that Krista and Noah had. It was intense, and overwhelming. You could tell just from spending a few minutes with them that their chemistry was the kind that demanded to be explored. However, Krista and Noah meant more than a few stolen kisses. Their connection was not one to be thrown away and that made all of the will they/won’t they moments so incredibly worth it.
Stolen Kisses was a sweet and heartwarming story. It is a fantastic friends to lovers romance. I thought this story was sweet with just the right amount of romance, a few steamy moments and light drama. This is my first book by this author and I look forward to discovering more books from her in the future.
