This is an "opposites attract" story. Rose is brash, sometimes crude, ashamed of her background but with a heart of gold and a pink streak in her hair. Flynn is an introvert, rarely participating in social events in the village, and devoted to his work. Rose is a single mother of two moody teenage girls crammed into a tiny flat with her even more off-color mother moving in after being mugged at her own apartment. Flynn is well-to-do and hiding a tragic secret. Yet these two opposites find something in each other; Rose wants to mend Flynn's loneliness and Flynn wants to take care of Rose.
Besides the romance, this is a wonderful story about family, the good and the bad, and how members care for each other despite all. Ms. Booth's writing is excellent and the reader wants to make all the characters their friends. I'm reading her books much too quickly, but I can already tell they are books I will go back to.
We get to hear more from Eliza and how her life has changed since the end of 'Angel', plus other villagers who featured in the first novel, which is lovely. It's like catching up with old friends.
There's a lot of humour in 'Kiss' but there's tears too. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but there's some unexpected revelations as the story progresses showing that this is no typical romcom; it's a wonderfully emotional story with depths and characters you want to hear more about. Roll on book 3!
As with the first one, I was hooked! It was great to catch up with Eliza and Gabriel, and see the lovely Rose's life (and her family's) taking a most important turn.
Can't wait for number three and see what Lexie is up to!
