When love drives you crazy . . .
When sexy Joe Malone never calls after their explosive kiss, Kylie shoves him out of her mind. Until she needs a favor, and it’s a doozy. Something precious to her has been stolen and there’s only one person with unique finder-and-fixer skills that can help—Joe. It means swallowing her pride and somehow trying to avoid the temptation to throttle him—or seduce him.
the best thing to do . . .
No, Joe didn’t call after the kiss. He’s the fun time guy, not the forever guy. And Kylie, after all she’s been through, deserves a good man who will stay. But everything about Kylie makes it damned hard to focus, and though his brain knows what he has to do, his heart isn’t getting the memo.
… is enjoy the ride.
As Kylie and Joe go on the scavenger hunt of their lives, they discover surprising things about each other. Now, the best way for them to get over “that kiss” might just be to replace it with a hundred more.

My Musings :
Jill Shalvis! Here I come! Yeah, I am no stranger to this author's writing so I was 100% sure that I would adore her book inspite of not having read her in the past few years.
The book is hot and sweet with the right amount of spice. The characters are well developed. Joe is the alpha male with all the good intentions and bad past. He is so sweet yet so stubborn in not going forward in his like for Kylie. And Kylie is a queen with her tenacity and her willingness to stand up for herself. She is so adorable especially in the scenes where she butts head with Joe. Their interactions had me laughing in delight.
The supporting cast of Kylie's friends and Joe's family are down to earth and easy to love. They are apt to the protagonists and the story. I am looking forward to reading each of their stories now. The close knit community that the author has put together is heart warming and it further enhances the romantic tale. Speaking of romance, the tension is crackling between Joe and Kylie and their steamy scenes aren't too much.
The author's writing is always easy to read and enjoyable. It speaks to the heart and touches our feelings. And that's why I feel that her stories fly while reading. The twist in the story is the mystery of her kidnapped wood charm. And well, to be honest, I was skeptical about it at the start. Then it formed a good part of the story so I took it seriously. After all the suspects and their stories, the ending blew my head not because of the suspense but because of the argument in the revealing scene. I was literally shaking my head and sighing.. Seriously??? It had me smirking too.
All in all, I loved the story PERIOD! So if you are hesitating to pick up this book, please don't. It's a witty and adorable read. So go ahead and get your hands on it pronto!
I received a copy for reviewing purposes. This doesn't impact my thoughts on the book.
My one line review: A hot sweet witty romance
My rating : 5/5
My reread factor : 3/5
