Reviews About That Kiss (Heartbreaker Bay, #5)

  • Carol [Goodreads Addict]
    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....

    4 STARS And you kissed me that last time!” “You were going on about a kiss being nice. But there was nothing nice about that kiss you planted on me in the alley. It was raw and sexy and dirty in the best possible way. You needed to be reminded of that.” She covered her face. “Oh my God.” “God had nothing to do with it,” he said smugly. About That Kiss was everything I had hoped it would be; perfectly swoony with a side of suspense...
  • Stacey is Sassy
    ***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 ...

    About that Kiss is another delightful addition to Ms. Shalvis' Heartbreaker Bay series. I've been looking forward to Joe's story ever since I found out that Jill is gonna give Archer's security men stories of their own. And she did not disappoint. Security expert Joe Malone and woodworker extraordinaire Kylie Masters shared a hot kiss one night, and it suddenly changed everything. Joe is fine being a bachlor. He doesn't lack companionship and bes...

    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 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!

    ***4.5/5 Stars***About That Kiss is my new favorite Jill Shalvis book! The characters captured my heart, the sexual tension between the two of them was scorching hot, and I could not put this book down. I loved that there was a fabulous group of friends, an intriguing mystery, and scenes that made me have tears in my eyes. About That Kiss was such a huge win for me! If you haven't read this series yet, you can jump in anytime. Each book can easil...

    Favorite Quotes:Do me a favor and don’t compare me to the women you date… Or whatever you do with them. We all know the only reason you even remember their names is that you take them to the coffee shop in the morning and then read what gets written on their cup.She told me not to mistake her silence for weakness, that no one plans a murder out loud.I actually like being single. I get to be selfish with my time and personal space. I can leave...

    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...
  • Sabrina
    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...

  • Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
    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’...
  • Maria Rose
    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...

    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...
  • Pamela
    I'm really struggling with how to rate this one, and it's not made any easier by Goodread's inexplicable refusal to let us use 'half-stars' in our ratings! There were definitely enough individual things I liked about this installment of the enjoyable but uneven Heartbreaker Bay series to convince me it was worth the read, but ultimately the ending left me feeling let down and retrospectively a bit more disenchanted with the novel as a whole. Some...

    4.5One kiss on a druken night and he never called back is usually not the beginning of a romance. But when you both have the same circle of friends and both can't forget the damn kiss and there's a talented author who decided to tell your story, it is ;p Kylie have a crush on her boss Gib for quite a while now but Joe doesn't let her indifferent too. Anyway, Gib never demonstrated anything other than friendliness towards her. And with a mom who a...

  • Terri Wino
    Another entertaining entry in this series. Loved Kylie's spunkiness, her adorable dog Vinnie, and the sexy Joe Malone. I have yet to be disappointed in any of the books in this series. Hoping the next one features Molly and (I'm assuming) Lucas!(2018 reading challenge: February - In honor of Valentine's Day read a romance novel or book that features a love story for the month of February.)

    4.5 starsAbout That Kiss by Jill Shalvis is such a good read.The storyline is sweet, funny, heartwarming and very romantic. 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. I have to applaud author Jill Shalvis, she's once again delivered a very entertaining read that...
  • Bea Charmed
    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 ...
  • Stacee
    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 ...
  • Gretchen (About That Story)
    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...

    ***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. The kind that you can't stop thinking about, that makes you weak in the knees and makes you wonder if it was a fluke, if that kind of chemistry is something tha...
