Clint MacAllister, NASCAR's hottest star, is ready to settle down. Unfortunately Clint isn't having much success in the marriage mart. When he meets Skye, he sees an opportunity to solve both of their problems. He can benefit from Skye's sex tips and she needs Clint's help understanding the male psyche.
As their lessons progress, the sexual tension builds. Commitment phobic Skye is reconsidering her previous held notions of marriage and relationships. And marriage minded Clint is beginning to see that following his heart is all that matters when it comes to love.
I had a ball reading Kiss Me Once, Kiss Me Twice! Clint and Skye's private
lessons were both laugh-out-loud funny and very sensual. Clint, is not just a hunk, he excels at his career and that is so very sexy. Skye is strong and independent. Her conquering the programming of her TV remote endeared her to me. I especially loved and related to Skye's cookie addiction.
The supporting characters were well developed and added a lot to the humor of the story. The secondary romances were a fun addition to the plot as well. Kiss Me Once, Kiss Me Twice is an amusing and sexy love story that fans of contemporary romance are sure to love.

When Skye gets caught up in wedding purgatory as a bridesmaid, one accident leads to another and she makes a fool of herself in front of NASCAR bad boy Clint MacAllister (their initial meeting is hysterical). He originally thinks she's a track bunny. Somehow in a drunken stupor, she admitted her lack of "man-knowledge" and he wants to become a better lover so that the PR director at Daytona will accept his proposal for marriage. So basically they have an exchange of lessons; lessons that always seem to get a little too heated. As the two continue their instruction and try not to mean anything to each other, and question each other's real motivations, they get closer than they ever realize they wanted. Can a marriage and baby-minded good old boy and a feminist find true love?
Raye always pens tongue in cheek romances filled with innuendo and quirky characters. This one excels on all fronts. Followed up with "Sometimes Naughty, Sometimes Nice" featuring youngest daughter and adult novelty maker Xandra and "Sweet as Sugar, Hot as Spice" featuring middle daughter and adult film producer Eve.
Her mother was mostly on the road, giving lectures about her books, and their professor father was doing research somewhere. Leaving Skye and her sisters raised by their grandmother in a small village.
Skye and her sisters have been indoctrinated by their mothers' beliefs their whole lives, leaving them the odd girls out at school, and too independent. When her assistant Jenny proudly tells her she is getting married, and asks her to be the maid of honor, she doesn't know how to refuse. She has never even been to a wedding before.
Skye is trying to resist her addiction to cookies, and her youngest sister is trying to stop smoking. Talking to their mother really does not help with those goals. She keeps reminding them that a daughter of her would never do this or that. They do love their mother, but it sure is tiring.
Skye has a fondness for "Barbie" shoes, but she was never even allowed to own a Barbie by her mother, and so she dresses sensibly and not sexy. Those shoes are invented by men to torture women with....
Being tasked to find the missing bridesmaid, Skye runs into Cliff MacAllister in one of the bathrooms. She used to dream of him as a teenager, when she had this big poster above her bed, of him dressed in his boxers and cowboy boots. And he sure has filled out nice and strong, and is now a famous NASCAR racecar driver. Only he gave up on racing a while ago after a minor accident, and is now the owner of his own team. He has re-evaluated his life, and he really wants a wife and kids of his own. Only the girl he proposed to, said no. Apparently, he was not all that hot in the bedroom. So Cliff is determined to get better, and so he makes a deal with Skye, while she is drunk on champagne and chocolate cake. She will teach him sex, and he will teach her what a real man likes. Meaning sports, and fishing, and such. To her own surprise, Skye likes watching sports, even up close.
Skye is very much attracted to Cliff, but as he told her he is almost engaged, she won't go for it. She likes sex, but it does not mean she has had a lot of lovers, she is very picky, but the attraction between them is sizzling. And Cliff wants marriage, which is something she will never go for.
Skye tries to teach Cliff theory only, but as he is dyslexic, that does not really work for him. Also, he is very intrigued by all the items she has brought over for the lessons and totally throws her out of her game plan. Sharing stories of their past, and present, brings them closer together, and they start to really like each other. Which is so not what they want. A relationship between them will never work ...
After reading the second book in this series a few weeks ago, I really wanted the other two books in this trilogy. To my disappointment, the books were extremely expensive, so I am happy I managed to find them secondhand. Or rather, my secondhand bookdealer Claudia did.
I enjoyed this one a lot as well. I like Skye, she is a modern woman, but she has a romantic streak, and I think Cliff will make her give in to that little by little. She is a girly girl who loves to wear dresses and frills and tiny antiques, while he is a real sports man and a man's man. Still, they are great together. Cliff was told time and again that he would never amount to anything, but he sure proved them all wrong by becoming one of the best drivers in history. And now the press are on his back again, as if he would be afraid to drive anymore after his accident. He really doesn't want to talk about it, he is truly ready to move on with his life, and when it is necessary, he does get behind the wheel and drive. I loved that part.
Two lonely but very nice people who find each other, but the story is fun, and well written, and I do love Kimberly's sense of humor. Of course there are some naughty scenes, and some hot scenes, and some very sweet ones. I do like Skye's interaction with her sisters, and am looking forward to reading the third book soon. I am curious about the gothic middle sister. And well, their father is intend of deepening his relationship with their mother after all those years of being semi-together, and I want to know how he will manage that. After all, it goes against everything she preaches.
