Happy Tuesday, Reader Friends!
I hope you had an awesome weekend. I wanted to take the time and share my thoughts on one of the books I’ve read this summer. Today’s the release day for Just One Kiss by Courtney Walsh. I think you’re gonna want to add this to your TBR pile!
Let’s gets started!
About the Book
He broke her heart. Now, he’s back, and he’s determined to show her what they had isn’t over. . . and he can prove it with just one kiss.
Single mother Carly Collins likes predictability. However, when her son Jaden’s health is threatened, her neatly controlled world is tossed into a tailspin. Nothing is certain anymore, especially her feelings for Josh Dixon, Jaden’s father, her first love and the man responsible for shattering her heart sixteen years ago.
When Josh Dixon walked out of Harbor Pointe, he left behind his only shot at a real family. Now a successful tech mogul, the town rebel has found a cause—ensure his son’s recovery and prove to Carly and Jaden that he’s not the same guy he was back then.
Carly and Josh are forced to wade through messy emotions and questions that have gone unanswered for years, which would be easier if not for the pesky feelings, every bit as strong and impossible to ignore as they ever were.
Will forgiveness win, giving Carly and Josh a second chance at love . . . or will the past prove too much to overcome?
A small town romance about first love second chances and how our most beautiful life might look nothing like we planned.
Courtney Walsh always manages to grab my attention with her covers. There’s something so sweet, so promising that I have no choice but to add her books to my TBR pile. Just One Kiss also hooked me with the return to Harbor Pointe. I’ve enjoyed the characters, settings, and love found.
What surprised me about this book: Josh Dixon. Y’all, I seriously did not expect to like him. At. All! But I did. He quickly wormed his way into my heart and I just couldn’t help but root for him. Seriously, this is probably one of the few times that I liked the guy way more than the girl. What can I say, I’m a sucker for redemptive characters.
What I didn’t like: Ms. Walsh giving me a heart attack with Jaden’s health. I won’t go into a lot of detail but those scenes had me on pins and needles. That is all I’m going to say.
What made me swoon: that one kiss. If you read it, you know it. If not, you’ll know it when you get to it.
All in all, my return trip to Harbor Pointe was as good as I expected with some sweet surprises and a deserving hero.
