Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Lisa's other titles: Her Perfect Lips 'This was a great flirty, passionate and thought provoking read with believable connection and chemistry between the two main characters. I loved it... Five stars.' - Foxylutely Book Reviews 'Lisa Fox brings lighthearted fun with characters that feel honest, and have palpable connections. A great choice for a pick-me-up read when the hustle and bustle of the holidays leaves you with the need for escape.' - I Am, Indeed

About the Author

When I was young, I wanted to be a lawyer when I grew up. But then I changed my mind because being a famous, yet totally undercover secret agent would be much cooler. I looked into it, but there weren't many job opportunities. I thought for a while and concluded that maybe I should just marry well. People make whole careers of that. I fell deeply in love with Agent Mulder, but he already had Scully, and I don't share. So, instead, I became a writer. Now I get to be all of those things and so many more.

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.

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.

I love friends to lovers stories, and One Kiss doesn't disappoint. The chemistry between Kat and Dean is sizzling hot, but the underlying warmth of their friendship is what makes this story a winner. Well done!

One Kiss is Lisa Fox’s debut for Harper Impulse and will surely start your romance-reading for this year off right! The thing that originally attracted me to this book was the cover—it is dazzlingly eye-catching. This is a quick read novella that takes place mainly on New Year’s Eve in New York City and I read it in one sitting.

I thought the main characters, Kat and Dean, were both fun characters to be the focus of the tale. Their attitudes and backgrounds are fairly diverse though, which lead me to take a little while to like Kat as much as I liked. Nevertheless, once I got past that, I did revel in the banter amongst the two of them and Fox sets up their bond well.

The only slight negative point for me about Fox’s work was that at times it seemed to mood swing a bit too quickly so I got readers whiplash but it got back on track quick enough.

Overall, Fox does a good job of keeping the reader from knowing all of the characters’ secrets and I could not have foreseen Kat’s reveal. With a nice dosage of romantic fireworks shooting off as One Kiss sidles to its close, this is a novelette that will positively warm up readers!

I love the premise for this series, to me nothing is hotter or more sensual and romantic than a kiss… a Good Kiss: not too hard or soft, not too wet or sloppy, you can tell much about a man by his kiss. And Lisa Fox parlays that one kiss into a super sweet and fun story that is utterly engaging.

Dean and Kat are best friends –but have never acted on any sort of romantic attraction. It’s New Year’s Eve, and while Dean has broken up with his girlfriend, Kat’s blind date was a failure. There’s just one problem – they don’t want to be the only two people unkissed at midnight.
Their kiss leads to more – they have ignored or denied the attraction between them for so long that it is a source of surprise and excitement- and they rush off to explore. But, Dean is far more open about his feelings for Kat – and it freaks her out. They retreat to separate corners to deal with all of the change – but when Dean goes to look for Kat – she’s not there.

A lovely story of missed connections and miscommunications with some fun and funny characters who are completely aware of the dangers a relationship failure in the romantic sense could have on a friendship that is so completely important to them both. These two already know each other, and enjoy the company, but they have to decide if that one kiss will be the start of something new or a turning point to the friend zone.

A short read that is perfect for a quick bite of fun and engaging romance, this is a wonderful start to a series of sweet, heartfelt romance.

I received an eArc copy of the title from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Friends to lovers. These kind of romances have a way of making me say, "Aw!" when I probably wouldn't, lol. How well the couple knows each other comes from years being around each other. They've celebrated each other's successes, offered hugs and a shoulder to lean on during the bad times, made it a point to hang out "just because".

Dean and Kat's friendship had all of that. It was developed, appreciated, needed, and wanted. The change in their feelings for each other didn't happen overnight; they were a long time in development, even though it seemed like they changed because it was New Year's Eve. Despite the time they'd been together as friends though, it was surprising to see how hesitant Kat was to talk about her past and her family with Dean.

What I liked was the time that passed. See, during New Year's, Dean and Kat's relationship turned about ninety degrees. It felt like it had done an about face, but it hadn't. The remaining ninety degrees would remain as long as Kat didn't open up completely to Dean. Thank God she had the sense to; she would have missed out on the most amazing thing ever if she hadn't.

One Kiss is a well-rounded, short story that's perfect to read during a lunch break, between appointments, or before bed. The characters are engaging and stubborn, and Dean is wonderfully determined to see their relationship change for the better.
