Publisher's Summary

Julie Greene loves flings. Loves steamy first dates, sizzling first kisses, and every now and then, that first sexy romp between the sheets. Comfy pants, sleepy Sundays, movie nights on the couch? Shudder. But when Julie gets assigned the hardest story of her career - a first-person account of that magical shift between dating and "I do" - she'll need a man brave enough to give a total commitment-phobe a chance at more.

Normally, Mitchell Forbes would be exactly that man. A devastatingly hot workaholic who tends to stay in relationships for far too long, he should be the perfect subject for Julie's "research." But what Julie doesn't know is that Mitchell is looking to cut loose for once in his life. And the leggy journalist notorious for avoiding love is exactly the type of no-strings fling he's looking for. In other words, Mitchell is the polar opposite of what Julie needs right now. And, at the same time, he's exactly what she wants.

Contains mature themes.

Critic Reviews

"Packed with loads of sizzle and Snickerlicious fun, Lauren Layne's After the Kiss is a knock-your-stilettos-off, total page-turning treat that had me fan-girling up within the first chapter. I absolutely loved this read!" (Mira Lyn Kelly, USA Today best-selling author)

After The Kiss

Julie works at Stilello, The Magazine for women and is part of the "IT" girls, the trio who write the infamous articles and her newest assignment is NOT something she is familiar with and doesn't have the first clue where to turn and she is spinning out of control. When met with an ultimatum from the boss, either write the article or lose her spot to her nemesis, she bends to a bet to have a fling for the sake of a relationship so she can write the article. This puts Mitchell in her sights. Mitchell works on Wall Street and he is recently single. He is a serious dater who when he dates it is for real and long term. This leads his friend to bet him he cannot actually have a fling and "love 'em and leave 'em" and puts up Yankee tickets as an incentive. This puts Julie in his sights. Oh, what a tangled web this is, especially when things start to get serious and hearts become involved. When the bets are made public knowledge, tempers flare and words are exchanged and hearts are broken. Oh my, how will they ever find their happy ending because these always have a happy ending. This was so good and listening to it in audio was a hoot. I found myself laughing out loud! I highly recommend it and off to get the next one in the series now!

It was okay.

Would have been better with a male voice to play Mitchell instead of the awkward male voice the woman used.

Great story!

I really enjoyed the twists and turns this book took. It moves beyond the initial romance and talks about what it means to be in a relationship, what it means to care about another person.
What a joy!!

Love Lauren Layne

I read this entire series before taking a shot at the audio version, just for fun. I absolutely loved the books and all the characters, the friendships between the women and even the men (their friendships grow as they engage in relationships with their female counterparts) were fluid and realistic. The steamy scenes were enough to make me fear my Kindle might catch on fire!

I thought that the narrator, Samantha Cook, did a good job for the most part. At least, with the female characters and her emotional range. However, I was really taken out of the story whenever she voiced a male character. To me, they all kind of sounded like she was trying to voice old men, and they each sounded really similar, if not exactly the same.

I’ll keep on buying Lauren Layne’s amazing romance reads!

connverse to "how to lose a guy in 10 days"

Sweet and somewhat comical take on learning how to "take it to the next level" and fall in love with someone.

Remove plastic before cooking frozen pizza!

Not the typical love-at-first sight story, but perfect just the way it is. The sarcasm of the main characters made me lol. Sweet ending.

Hilarious and More

The best book in this series and one of my favorite romances. Light, funny and touching. And Samantha Cook’s performance is worthy of an old-time screwball comedy. My only quibble is with the premise: the magazine that sets things in motion is heartless. But put that aside. All ends happily. Enjoy.
