Kat is there on the line ready to do the happy dance because she has never liked Marine. Yet, she wanted to be there for Dean and felt bad he wait so long to tell her. She was also feeling bad because she had accepted a blind date fix up. Since it was work related and family she invited Dean since he would know people since it was work friends and family. He says no at first but then agrees which makes Kat happy to have a buffer for the blind date too. He could figure out why she allowed herself to be talked into it. So, he ask…
You see Kat’s background had to have been awful for her that he knew. Her going home for Christmas is just not good for her mind, body, or soul. She’s so stressed before she leaves and quiet and depressed for weeks after she comes back. Not just days either but weeks. It just kills him to see her this way, especially since he grew up with the Brady Bunch life style where everyone loves one another and she didn’t.Read more ›
Dean and Kat are best friends –but have never acted on any sort of romantic attraction. It’s New Year’s Eve, and while Dean has broken up with his girlfriend, Kat’s blind date was a failure. There’s just one problem – they don’t want to be the only two people unkissed at midnight.
Their kiss leads to more – they have ignored or denied the attraction between them for so long that it is a source of surprise and excitement- and they rush off to explore. But, Dean is far more open about his feelings for Kat – and it freaks her out. They retreat to separate corners to deal with all of the change – but when Dean goes to look for Kat – she’s not there.
A lovely story of missed connections and miscommunications with some fun and funny characters who are completely aware of the dangers a relationship failure in the romantic sense could have on a friendship that is so completely important to them both. These two already know each other, and enjoy the company, but they have to decide if that one kiss will be the start of something new or a turning point to the friend zone.
A short read that is perfect for a quick bite of fun and engaging romance, this is a wonderful start to a series of sweet, heartfelt romance.
I received an eArc copy of the title from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
Dean and Kat's friendship had all of that. It was developed, appreciated, needed, and wanted. The change in their feelings for each other didn't happen overnight; they were a long time in development, even though it seemed like they changed because it was New Year's Eve. Despite the time they'd been together as friends though, it was surprising to see how hesitant Kat was to talk about her past and her family with Dean.
What I liked was the time that passed. See, during New Year's, Dean and Kat's relationship turned about ninety degrees. It felt like it had done an about face, but it hadn't. The remaining ninety degrees would remain as long as Kat didn't open up completely to Dean. Thank God she had the sense to; she would have missed out on the most amazing thing ever if she hadn't.
One Kiss is a well-rounded, short story that's perfect to read during a lunch break, between appointments, or before bed. The characters are engaging and stubborn, and Dean is wonderfully determined to see their relationship change for the better.

I thought the main characters, Kat and Dean, were both fun characters to be the focus of the tale. Their attitudes and backgrounds are fairly diverse though, which lead me to take a little while to like Kat as much as I liked. Nevertheless, once I got past that, I did revel in the banter amongst the two of them and Fox sets up their bond well.
The only slight negative point for me about Fox’s work was that at times it seemed to mood swing a bit too quickly so I got readers whiplash but it got back on track quick enough.
Overall, Fox does a good job of keeping the reader from knowing all of the characters’ secrets and I could not have foreseen Kat’s reveal. With a nice dosage of romantic fireworks shooting off as One Kiss sidles to its close, this is a novelette that will positively warm up readers!
