    About That Kiss is book five in the Heartbreaker Bay series by Jill Shalvis. This book…this series! I’ve loved it from the start but this one just might be my favorite. Or do I think that after every book? Kylie Masters is a very talented wood worker. She is working for her long time friend, Gib at Reclaimed Woods. Kylie never knew her Dad and her Mom was more interested in her long string of boyfriends, so Kylie was raised by her Grandfather...

    About that Kiss by Jill Shalvis is a 2018 Avon publication.Sweet, sexy and suspenseful! A mind blowing, toe curling kiss- It was just a one off- Joe never called Kylie after they shared that kiss, so Kylie tries to put it out of her mind. But, a special heirloom her grandfather made for her is stolen, and held for ransom- yes, you read that right, and she needs Joe’s expertise in getting it back. Kylie insists on helping with the investigation,...

    ✭★✭ ALL THE STARS ✭★✭ Review @ Vanilla & Spice BooksWhen you've read so many books in your life you kinda feel that not much can surprise you anymore. And then there comes this one book, by an author you've never read (*hides in shame*) that becomes a total game changer. I don't think I have ever fallen in love with an author's writing that fast. Jill Shalvis' ABOUT THAT KISS had me from page 1. I was a goner from the very beginning....

    ***IT'S ALIVE!!!***It’s about not settling…I think there is one thing that sets Jill Shalvis apart from other romance authors. Her heroines believe in themselves. Maybe it’s because she (Jill Shalvis) has a strong man at her side. Maybe it’s because she (Jill) brought up three intelligent, spirited and beautiful daughters. Maybe it’s because she (J. S.) doesn’t want her heroines or women, in general, to settle for less than what they ...

    5 - "We're partners in this." Stars!2018 is going to be the year of Shalvis for me. One of my main resolutions is to read through her back catalogue, because in 2017 the books I read by her put her in #1 position as my favorite contemporary romance author.And that is mainly due to the progression of the Heartbreaker Bay series, which saw three new additions to its ranks, and although About That Kiss officially releases in January 18, I read it in...

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.This was great! I am really enjoying this series and this book was no exception. This is the fifth book in the Heartbreaker Bay series but it could easily be read as a stand alone since it does tell its own story. I would warn new readers to the series that you will want to read the other books in this amazing series as soon you finish this one just because you will want to spend a li...

    This was terrific! Favorite quote:The older woman smiled knowingly. "He'll appreciate your toys. But remember, it's all fun and games until someone loses the key to the handcuffs."Hilarious!

    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UK About That Kiss quickly became one of my favorite book from Jill Shalvis. From the second I started reading I was captivated by these characters. They were both very strong lead characters that I could admire. Joe was sexy with all his alpha-ness and Kylie was just as strong, yet had a quiet vulnerability in her character that I liked. The story takes you on their journey to find Kylie's wooden penguin that also hol...

A missing Penguin, has Kylie seeking Joe's investigative skills and this stubborn woman insists on tagging along.I loved how strong both characters were in About That Kiss.

    I’ve enjoyed the Heartbreak Bay series from the start, and while there were parts of About That Kiss I really enjoyed it didn’t have the same humor and fun I’ve come to expect from Jill Shalvis instead she opted to grab onto the romantic suspense ring that everyone seems to be grasping at these days which was disappointing. Kylie Masters is an accomplished wood worker and enjoys her job at Reclaimed Woods with one of her late grandfather’...

    Reviewed for herding cats & burning soup. (live on the blog 1/25/18)Amazon: http://amzn.to/2hG1ZbUAhhhh Jill Shalvis. She does make me laugh. I had fun with About That Kiss. These two were fiery. Stubborn, pigheaded, sexy as all get out. It was fun watching them butt heads and drive each other crazy. In and out of the bedroom. The Gist: A penguin has been stolen. And Kylie...she wants it back. Even if it means begging the sexy yet supremely irrit...

    Aaaah, I liked this one so much. Joe comes across as a bad ass and the strong silent type, and he is both of those but there's more to him. Kylie is quiet, determined, and hesitant when it comes to romance. Together, they have fun and let down their walls to let each other, and other people, inside. This book works fine as a stand alone so you can jump into the series here if you want, or start at the beginning and follow everybody's journeys. Jo...

    I swear Jill Shalvis can do no wrong with the Heartbreaker Bay series. I’ve loved every book to date, and About That Kiss was no different. Once again, Jill Shalvis has written a sweet and swoony story that left me smiling for hours after I was done reading the book.Kylie and Joe are so damn adorable together. Seriously, these two are precious. Not only that, these two also had super sexy chemistry between them. I love that Jill Shalvis writes ...

    About that Kiss by Jill Shalvis is the latest romance in the Heartbreaker Bay series. It centers on a group of acquaintances and friends who live and/or work in the same building complex. Over the course of the series, several secondary characters have been introduced and this is the story of a couple of friends who let one little kiss lead to a whole lot more.Kylie Masters takes pride in her woodworking skills, taught to her by her beloved grand...

    I’ve been a fan of Jill’s books for a while, so I don’t even read the synopsis any more. Especially for this series. Love love loved Kylie and Joe. She’s tougher than she thinks and has the biggest heart. He’s gruff and stand off-ish. Together they have loads of chemistry and some sweet moments together. I truly enjoyed the reading them figure things out. Plot wise, it was okay. The “scavenger hunt” isn’t quite as whimsical as it ...

The writing is beautifully done, the plot easy to follow and once I started reading I didn't want to put it down.Kylie and Joe were likable, passionate characters that I easily connected with and touched my heart with their story.

    Joe Malone and Kylie Masters rocked each other's worlds with a spontaneous, Earth-shattering kiss. But now they are both trying to figure out what it should or could mean. They are completely distracted by and attracted to each other, but are opposites with different views on relationships and life.Joe is one of Hunt Security's ex-military bad a**es. He is controlled, stoic, closed off, and refuses to do relationships. He has his reasons, but ult...

    Review originally posted on my blog: Mischievous ReadsThe Heartbreaker Bay series is a new favourite of mine. Ever since I watched The Trouble With Mistletoe on Passionflix, I knew I had to get my hands on this series and voila, I binge-read the books because I just couldn't put them down! They're just that good. I can't get enough of Jill Shalvis' writing and I'm totally disappointed I didn't pick up her books sooner.About That Kiss is a swoon-w...

    My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin About That Kiss is a warm, funny read that’s classic Jill Shalvis. Kylie and Joe are endearing, vibrant characters and their love story charmed my socks off. Like all the Heartbreaker Bay books, About That Kiss draws you into a wonderful world of welcoming characters, making you want to pull up a comfy chair and get lost in their stories.Ms. Shalvis knows how to write sigh-worthy heroes, and Joe defi...

    I absolutely adored this. About That Kiss is my favorite book in the Heartbreaker Bay series so far. I loved the main characters, the animosity between them, the humor, and the bit of mystery mixed in. This was pretty perfect to me!I loved Joe and Kylie. They had such great chemistry and I loved how they played off one another and the humor that was created. That animosity was really playful and a bit snarky and I ate it up. I thought Joe was fan...

    Jill Shalvis has certainly found her stride with this series now. While I liked the first few books in the series, I really feel like things are starting to feel like her older titles which I simply adore. ABOUT THAT KISS is the fifth book in the Heartbreaker Bay series and it features Joe and Kylie. At first, I wasn’t sure I was going to like Joe. I don’t really know why that is. I just went into the book thinking that he was going to be one...

    release day!i absolutely adore this series and i was so excited to get this book! i really liked kylie, she was such a fun character. joe too, super sexy. i will say, this is the first one i've read that was an ARC, all the others i either bought or got from the library, so i did notice some errors and also the writing just felt more stilted. i don't know if it's because it's an ARC, or just this particular book. for the most part though, it was ...

    ***ARC Provided by the Publisher via Edelweiss***Jill Shalvis is a favorite of mine because I know when I pick up one of her books, I am going to enjoy it. This book was no exception. I enjoyed Joe, Kylie and their investigation into kidnapped penguins and fake furniture.There was a kiss.

    I received this book for free from Edelweiss/Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.The first time I read a Jill Shalvis book, I didn't love it. I didn't hate it by any means, but it was just okay for me. It might have been because I hadn't been super into adult romance at the time. Or because I think Jill Shalvis's series tend to get better as they progress. Whatever th...
