Review: One Perfect Kiss by Jaci Burton

The New York Times bestselling author of Love Me Again returns to the town of Hope, Oklahoma where school is in session and love rules the playbook.

Josie Barnes has always craved a sense of home. She’s found that in Hope, Oklahoma–she bought a house, has a new job as an English teacher at Hope High, she’s made wonderful friends, and she’s taking in stray animals that no one else wants. Now she’s flirting with fellow teacher and hot high school football coach Zach Powers. But he’s almost too good to be true, and Josie learned long ago not to trust in the too-good-to-be-true, because it has always let her down.

A former pro football player, Zach had to pull back when a career-ending knee injury forced him to rethink his future. Now he’s happy calling plays as Coach. If he could just get Josie Barnes to stop benching his players for their poor grades, life would be perfect. Instead, she drives him crazy as the stern teacher at school and the sexy woman of his dreams outside of the classroom. He knows she’s been hurt in the past, but he wants to be that guy she can trust.

The one thing Josie has never been able to count on is the people closest to her. But Zach intends to show her that what they have between them is a textbook case of love.

My Review

One Perfect Kiss is a fast paced addicting romance.

One Perfect Kiss follows the story of Josie and Zach. The only thing Josie has ever wanted was a feeling of home and she thinks she may have found the perfect place in Hope, Oklahoma. She’s finally living the life she’s always dreamed. She’s got the perfect job, great friends and even a potential love interest. But, if there’s one thing that Josie has learned, it’s that if it seems too good to be true, it almost always is….Zach is a former football player turned coach/teacher. He loves the game more than anything. So, when Josie benches some of his players due to poor grades, he’ll stop at nothing to get them back on the team. Josie makes Zach crazy, but that doesn’t stop him from trying to get closer….Will Josie take a chance on Zach and try to let him in?? There’s only one way to find out…

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I found One Perfect Kiss to be a quick and enjoyable read. I loved the fast pace of the story and slow burn of the romance between Zach and Josie. Yes, Zach and Josie had instant chemistry, but I really loved how the author built up their relationship; had them get to know one another and really build that trust before jumping in. I really enjoyed getting to know these two and see just how their story was going to play out.

One Perfect Kiss was a great read from beginning to end. I honestly can’t get over just how quickly I read this book. I mean I totally devoured it. Zach and Josie’s story hit all the marks for me and was just the romance I was looking for. A totally great story to spend the day getting lost in. I can’t wait to see what this author will have in store for us next.
