Lexie travels a lot with her business of web designing. When she is home, she stays with her elderly Grandmother, who she really loves. Lexie sees the news report on Coop's ring. She realizes it matches her Grandmother's necklace exactly and tries to contact Coop about purchasing it for her Grandmother's birthday gift.
This unlocks a mystery about a stolen set of jewelry from a dinner party decades ago. Coop wants to follow the mystery to use the idea for a book he wants to publish. Lexie wants to find out how her Grandmother is involved. They team together on research and adventure, falling in love along the way. Fun, light read as the start of a rereleased series.
Lexi and her grandmother, Charlotte just happen to watch the evening news on the same day and catch the story. Charlotte spies the ring and gets excited about the fact that it seems to match her necklace that's she's had for years. Lexi gets the idea to aquire the ring for Charlotte's birthday coming up soon. Never did she think that she would have such a difficult time getting to Sam. But she's not to be deterred and finds an interesting way to speak with him. Once they see each other in person, sparks fly.
I loved where this story went. It turns out the ring had been stolen 60 years ago and had never been recovered. Coop and Lexi decide to find out who stole the ring and the necklace that her grandmother now possessed. Suspicions about everyone that could have done it are explored and lead to some heated discussions. But the two of them in close proximity leads to some heat in the bedroom and kitchen and closets. The chemistry is off the charts. And the way that they compliment each other and support each other was like they had been together for years. I love the way that Ms Philips encorperates different personalities into her books. You have the quirky grandmother who you never know what's coming out of her mouth, along with her best friend. Then you have the successful heroine who jet sets and works form wherever she happens to be. Then you have the hero who thinks he knows what he wants but can't seem to get the inspiration to catapult himself into the career he really wants. When you put them all together, you have a story that makes you laugh, one that makes you think about life choices and makes you suspicious of everyone involved.
I really enjoyed Kiss Me If You Can. I loved the whole mystery behind the ring and how everything unfolded and then came together in the end. The romance was a good balance of sweet, smexy and fun with just enough angst to keep things interesting and was filled with characters that kept me turning the pages to see what they’d get into next.
I loved Lexie. She’s intelligent, honest, upfront, has a tendency to act before thinking when her emotions go all wonky, but has a really good heart. Unfortunately that heart has been bruised by those who should have protected and nurtured it the most but those actions turned her into a woman willing to take chances and live life on her own terms.
And then there is Coop. I honestly liked Coop, a lot. He’s honorable, honest, sweet and is highly observant. But beneath all that, the man has a few issues that have kept him from even putting a toe over the invisible line in the sand he’s drawn for himself. Unfortunately, we had a bit of a rough time. He did a ‘thing’ ~ well a few ~ and I ended up snarling at him for it. In the end he does pull the blinders off, but there was definitely a rough patch.
From the get go, I knew their journey would be a rocky one with them being polar opposites when it came to the way they lived their lives, so most of the angst that happened between them was expected and easy to understand. But what made their journey interesting was how they balanced each other out and even though they may come at an issue on opposites sides, they could find a common ground and work through it all. The smexy was hot, neither of them were slouches in that department and were well matched.
While I enjoyed watching Coop and Lexie trip over themselves as they made their way to their HEA, I was just as into the mystery surrounding the ring. I thought that little mystery was well thought out and executed and thought how it was resolved was practically perfect. The tie in with the Hot Zone series was a nice little touch and of all the secondary characters I adored Charlotte with all her moxie. Sara peaked my interest, so I’m definitely interested to see how things play out with her and Rafe in the next book.
