A very well written story. I fell in love with Dylan and Emily right away. I didn't care for Zach and actually wondered how he could be so oblivious about Emily's feelings. I don't understand why Emily stayed with him for so long. I realize the relationship was comfortable for her, but being so far away from each other didn't make it very convenient.
I sort of can't reconcile the fact that everyone besides Emily new that Dylan was in love with her for years and never thought it might be a good idea to sit down and discuss it with him, especially after he chose to follow her to college. I loved Kayla, Shelby and Reagan and how they tried to manipulate the situation right from the start. Sometimes your friends just know what's best for you better than you do.
Dylan was really the star of this story for me. He was supportive and helpful and was always there for Emily when she needed him. I think he was really trying to be the stand up guy and pull away from Emily so that she could be happy, and so that he didn't hurt his relationship with his brother.
The confrontation between Zach and Dylan was pretty intense but I almost wish that there had been more angst. Over all I think this was a good read and I look forward to seeing how Zach might redeem himself in the next one.

I'm a sucker for a love-gone-wrong or a people-dating-the-wrong-person story (A Midsummer Night's Dream, anybody?) and that's what attracted me to A Kiss by Design. Emily is best friends with Dylan and has been dating Dylan's older brother Zach for years. Dylan has been secretly in love with Emily forever and faces a constant battle to hide it.
Some parts of the story were really funny - The scenes where Emily finds the ring in Dylan's bag and decides to stop him from proposing were some of my favourites. She comes up with some ridiculous schemes and I think it was obvious to everybody but Emily and Dylan why she was so desperate to stop him. I loved how her friends worked to open Emily's eyes to the situation.
Dylan was a great character and friend to Emily, it was really sad reading his chapters and watching him suffer. I honestly have no idea how Emily hadn't realised he was in love with her. I get Zack not noticing because he's really self involved - let's just say he won't be winning any boyfriend of the year competitions!
Zack annoyed me, but that's the point. I think you're not meant to like him and I think it's obvious from pretty early on that he's not the one for Emily. The scene with his tutor and then his later reaction was really annoying - talk about hypocritical!
A Kiss by Design is sweet, funny and fun. I would have liked the ending to be developed more and I wanted more Dylan.

In my opinion the story is a comedy of errors, and while the author may not have intended it to be so, the nature of people and emotions makes it so.
There is a strong bond between Emily and Dylan, and I think that is what makes their story work so well. Their relationship is tested numerous times, and I felt the connection between them. It was almost as if they were in the room with me, I could feel the emotion, the electricity that they possessed.
I am interested in reading the next installment - Zach's Story.
