It started with a kiss. Then it became so much more.

Love at first sight. Avery Connor doesn't believe in it. But what about love at first kiss?

A favor for a friend. Kiss a stranger and walk away. But what if that favor, and that stranger, prove to be the turning point of her life? What if that kiss leads to something more?

Dr. Daniel Stewart is certain it will. He is determined to make her see him. To feel what he feels. To have the effects of that kiss last forever.

Contains mature themes.

This book made my heart smile!

I loved this book as it's such a beautiful love story. I just don't have words that would encompass the spectacular brilliance of this love story.

5 Warm and Fuzzy Stars



5 Warm and fuzzy stars!
It Started With a Kiss and there was no stopping after that. This story is simply sweet and swoony! Exactly what I needed to read right now!

“He’s already named you, Avery. He’s an animal guy. You know what that means. Once they name you, they keep you. You are so done.”

I listened to most of the story on audiobook and loved the narrators! They only added to my enjoyment of this book.
And I loved all of Daniel's 3's! <3

Some fluffy sweetness from Ms Moreland

If you could sum up It Started with a Kiss in three words, what would they be?

Angst light. Drama light. sweetness overload.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

It was enjoyable. I'm not a writer, and have only an opinion or expectation of what an author's metier seems to be vs what's in the next book. I have read (ie. listened to!) every one of her books. I loved The Contract. Beneath the Scars was also very well written too.Over the Fence was fun and funny. And, touching. Into the Storm? They all have two things in common. Broken soul meets Broken soul. Each heal one another with loads of sex, dramatics, and interference from others. This one was not her usual ... more like semi-broken spirited soul (she's a bit of a freak) meets a strong ex nerd type and they fall in love. Then, that's all they do. Be in love and boy does that happen freakishly fast too. All in all, I kept waiting for SOMETHING to happen... something big to turn the book's cotton candy framework into something I could sink my teeth into. It never happened. All in all a sweet story. It almost felt like MAYBE, just MAYBE, Ms Moreland trotted out the first book she ever wrote a decade ago and jazzed it up with some relevant 2017 activity like cell phone, texting, etc and threw it out at us to see if a sweet love story might fill a few hours while we waited for her next REAL new book. And, I do not mean to be rude at all. Just expressing how it felt listening.

Which scene was your favorite?

I really thought the "give me three" theme was sweet.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The daddy daughter date ... too sweet.

Any additional comments?

For readers: this is such a sweet book. Don't miss it JUST because there's no angst or dramatics. There is a little, I promise, but it's SO weak and fleeting, and there's so much HEA it's given me a cavity! ;)

such a sweet story.

This was such a sweet romance. I enjoyed it and I recommend it. I enjoyed the performance of the narrators as well. This is the third book I've listened to by this author and I have really enjoyed them all.

Lacking

I really like Melanie's books. I found this one compared to others did not have as strong a story as the others. Still a good listen

Mmmm

Started off well but felt like it wasn't going anywhere. Pretty lazy no point story. Disappointed after reading The Contract
