Book Description

Sometimes one kiss can change everything.

New Year's Eve is supposed to be a night for celebration and new beginnings. For best friends Kat and Dean, it is a nightmare filled with disastrous dates and enraged ex-girlfriends!

Lucky for them, they've got each other to help laugh off the embarrassing, and downright inappropriate, moments. But then midnight rolls around and neither of them have anyone to kiss…

There's no doubt this is a night they will always remember.

The real question is whether it will be a night they want to forget…

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet story June 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Kat and Dean have been friends for quite a while. Their friendship has been perfect with just the right amount of flirting added in. That is until the one night of the year people don’t like to be with just a friend, New Years Eve. Since Dean has recently broken up with his girlfriend he is alone and so is Kat. They head to a friends party to celebrate. Little do they know that what will happen at the party will change them both for good. On a night where people look forward to a new and wondrous year ahead, Kat and Dean will have to decide if they will still be just friends or if the New Year brings much more.

I really enjoyed this little story. It’s quite entertaining in spite of its being so short. I was pleasantly surprised that in this story we still saw character development and a story with some emotional depth. Lisa Fox did a great job. This was well written with a little excitement mixed with the romance. If you are looking for a quick romance fix, I would definitely recommend this novella. I’d love to see what Lisa Fox does with a full-fledged novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great story by Lisa Fox! April 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another great story by Lisa Fox! I like to reread her novellas and short stories because I always know I'll get some humor, some heart, and a whole lot of sexy in a story I can finish in a reasonable amount of time. It's like a decadent little snack.

This story took the friends to lovers trope and intensified it with a committment-phobe heroine. Loved it, and looking forward to getting through the rest of her backlist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, flirty, just a little too fast April 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Complimentary copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Kat is invited to a New Year's Eve party where she is about to be set up on a blind date. After arriving back in New York City after the Christmas holidays, she gets a phone call from her best friend Dean, telling her he has broken up with his girlfriend of the past year, Marine. Kat invites Dean along to the party; he agree, as he is also a part of the group of friends and co-workers, but mostly because he is curious as to why Kat has agreed to the blind date. Kat doesn't do relationships, for if she did, Dean would be one of the first to pursue her.

One Kiss is a fun, sweet, quick, easy read. It is well written, if not just a bit predictable. It is too short to really develop the characters in a meaningful way, however the storyline it to the point and easily resolved. It is a fun story of friends turned lovers, however it due to it's brevity, it lacks any real depth beyond that point. One Kiss would be a great beach read or a quickie for an airplane ride. Solid 3 ½ stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars... Fun and flirty, Friends to lovers April 10, 2014

4.5 Stars

My favorite part of One Kiss is at the beginning with Kat and her closet. That might seem weird, but I loved it. It made me laugh and I could totally see the chaos in my mind.

One Kiss showcases descriptive writing, believable and fun characters, aching sexual tension, fun dialogue and a satisfying HEA.

If you like friends to lovers stories with all the above characteristics packed into a novella-length story, you'll probably like One Kiss.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick story with hearts and flowers March 12, 2014
By Jacque
Format:Kindle Edition
Kat and Dean have best friends for ages. They both secretly have feelings for each other but neither are willing to act on them on the chance of ruining their BFF standing. But one fateful New Year’s Eve, one fateful kiss changes everything.

Sometime you just want a quick story with hearts and flowers. One Kiss by Lisa Fox fit the bill for me. I really enjoyed Kat and Dean. They make a sweet couple. While the story is quick, Ms Fox provides just the right amount of background allowing me to get to know the characters without overloading the current story. What I truly adored about this story is how you really got a sense that Kat and Dean are real friends. I was cheering these two on and when they finally took the bedroom plunge, I totally cheered.

I’ve read several books by author Lisa Fox and have yet to be disappointed. Anyone who likes a sweet quick story will enjoy One Kiss. Consider this my recommendation.

I received this book from JeepDiva for the express purposes of an honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated.
