About the book:

She might have made it to Hollywood, but he’s about to show her what she’s missed…

When actress Valentina Valverde arrives in Scotland to film Braveheart 2, she’s at breaking point. Driven by demons, she’s worked tirelessly since she was a teen. But she can’t stop now: everyone she loves depends on her. Yet despite all the glitz and glamor, Valentina can’t shake the feeling that she isn’t really living.

Bodyguard Charlie Hamilton’s lived too much. With looks and charm, he should have it all. But he’s broken. Estranged from his family, sacked from his job and with nothing left to lose, he flies to the Scottish Highlands to help his best friend protect Kinloch castle from a crazy Hollywood film crew.

But falling hard for a movie star isn’t in Charlie’s contract…

Thrown together on set, chemistry crackles between them. When Charlie suggests she take a holiday from life, Valentina is tempted to let down her guard and live a little. But as fun crosses the line into love, disaster bursts their bubble.

Can they let go of the past and find a future together? Or is this just a Highland fling?

Kissing Games is a steamy, dual POV, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy, with no cheating, no cliff-hanger, and a guaranteed happy ever after (HEA).

My Review:

I love rom coms and this one was even better because Charlie, the protagonist, is both an alpha male and a teddy bear.  He has all the descriptions of a bad boy, having done some bad things, been in the army and has tattoos, but when it comes down to it, he’s such a softie.  And Valentina, what a cool name right, is a beautiful movie star that is humble, insecure and sweet.  We get both of their POVs as we root for them to get together.

They both have some demons and flaws making them real and relatable and they have some of the best banter.  There were moments that I chuckled out loud.  Charlie goes on a mission to have Valentina experience all the things she missed out on as a teenager.  There is also a great supporting cast of characters that made me also smile since they are truly one of a kind.  And there are not one but two dogs that are part of the supporting cast of characters.

And of course it is spicy.  Don’t let the cute cover fool you.  And spice with a couple you are rooting for is the best.

I should mention, while this is book three in the series, it is easily a stand alone.  The characters are in the same universe, but the story is its own.  Of course once you finish, you will want to read the rest.
