Fresh Fiction Review

The Kissing Game

THE KISSING GAME marks a special release for Marie Harte as this has been a book that has been anticipated for a long while. Readers fell in love with Rena Jackson’s character and expressed their wish to have her get a happily ever after of her own, so I was thrilled to finally get to read the romance that Harte has come up with.

True to Harte’s style, she keeps things light and enjoyable, infusing the book with light banter and interesting dialogue. I always enjoy the heady dose of humor that her writing has and when it is mixed with the sexy alpha heroes, you really can’t help but fall in love with them. Axel Heller turned out to be a little different than I expected but he grew on me as the book progressed.

Perhaps because of the new style of cover, I did feel like THE KISSING GAME had a different tone to the other books in the series. While I definitely prefer the older style of covers, I can’t deny that I was happy to get Rena’s happily ever after.

She's one kiss away from finding Mr. Right!

Rena Jackson is ready. She's worked her tail off to open up her own hair salon, and she's almost ready to quit her job at the dive bar. Rena's also a diehard romantic, and she's had her eye on Axel Heller for a while. He's got that tall-brooding-and-handsome thing going big-time. Problem is, he's got that buttoned-up Germanic ice man thing going as well. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, Rena's about ready to give up on Axel and find some other Mr. Right.

At six foot six, Axel knows he intimidates most people. He's been crushing on the gorgeous waitress for months. But the muscled mechanic is no romantic, and his heart is buried so deep, he has no idea how to show Rena what he feels. He knows he's way out of his depth and she's slipping away. So, he makes one crazy, desperate play...

"I bet you a kiss you can't resist me."
Game on.

I agree, the old covers are more indicative of the series
but I have to know how Axel gets his HEA! Love this series.
