KISS ME HELLO is book three in the Sweetest Kisses
Grace Burrowes. This series follows three brothers who
lawyers working together and living in a small town in
Maryland. I follow Ms. Burrowes on social media, and
knowing she's a child abuse lawyer who has horses, this
seems tailor-made for her to show off her areas of
expertise, and she does so smoothly. The story and the
romance are languid- too languid for my taste.
Grieving Sid Lidstrom has arrived in Damson Valley
cash-strapped, escaping Baltimore after her brother died.
She has moved away from the city to provide a better life
for her foster son Luis. Sid is fighting the probate
lawyers after her brother's death, and is cash-strapped as
she tries to settle in to the area with her foster son.
is fighting DSS over the disposition of her foster son,
fighting with her foster son about adopting him. She has
much on her plate, it made even me feel overwhelmed and
tired as the reader!
MacKenzie Knightley is a lawyer, but he also shoes horses,
and he meets Sid in his role as a farrier when he arrives
to help with two huge draft horses on her property that
doesn't realize are there. Mac is a gentleman who takes
care of everyone around him: His brothers, especially
their father's death, his nieces, and the family horses as
well as the horses at the local therapy riding stable.
has his own heartaches that have kept him alone for ten
years and that make him a very sympathetic character.
I absolutely love the brother heroes in the Sweetest
series, and Mac is no exception. Mac is smart, tender,
a real gentleman. Not to mention he's very sexy, and good
with animals (which is also sexy in a different way). I
like Sidonie, although I don't like her as much as I like
Mac. Sid is willing to stand up for what she feels is
right, although she seems to be fairly passive in her
fighting against the injustices levied against her. What
don't like here is Mac and Sid together. The jump to love
feels to abrupt to me. Also, they don't seem to have a
of chemistry. Their lovemaking is sweet and slow, but I
don't truly feel the passion between them. KISS ME HELLO
