After reading the Goodbye Bride, I was excited to read this next book. Although it is the next book in the series, it is written to stand alone, so while there are references to the other book, you wont be missing anything important if you havent read the others in the series. As usual, the book was beautifully written. I finished in just a few days. I couldnt make myself put it down! I wanted to find out what was going to happen to Paige and Riley. The characters were very well developed and were very relatable. I loved Paiges character. I love how it shows how she came from such a rough past and has turned out to be a wonderful woman because of God. I highly recommend this book!

Rachs RamblingsBangor, MEAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5good Read!November 15, 2016Rachs RamblingsBangor, MEAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This was an easy read for me, and I usually give "easy beach reads" three stars. However, I was so able to connect with this book because I do know what it's like to have people see the chair before they see you. I do know what it's like not to be able to be eye level with other people. The descriptions of how one feels when they are no longer "normal" ring true in this book. I love flawed characters...whether physical or emotional.
I also loved that the hero fought to overcome his failings eventually, but the leading up to that is difficult. I enjoyed this read. Denise Hunter has a lovely way of writing a story that one can simply enjoy and finish with a happy sigh!

Angela BycroftOwhango, New ZealandAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Stellar conclusion to a fantastic series.November 11, 2016Angela BycroftOwhango, New ZealandAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5It takes a special author to make the third book in a series shine a brightly as the first - but Denise Hunter does just that with Just a Kiss. We have been building toward this story for the last two books - but even if the reader hasnt read them, the story would still be just a revetting and emotional.
Riley has been in love with Paige since they were teenagers but the time just didnt seem right. Then he had to endure the agony of watching his older brother Beau sweep in and take over boyfriend role. The only way Riley can see to deal with this is to enlist and is deployed over to Afghanistan.
Returning to Summer Harbour a changed man - an IED has rendered him a amputee, Riley determines that any dreams of rekindling a love with Paige wouldnt be fair to her. But he didnt reckon on being looked after by his former love or where their mutual friendship could eventually lead.
This was the perfect way to finish our time with the Callahans of Summer Harbour. And getting to see the conclusion of Aunt Trudys story too was an added bonus to sweet for words.
Thanks again to the Fiction Guild for providing a complimentary copy for review - all opinions are my own.
LucyWVAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful Contemporary RomanceNovember 1, 2016LucyWVAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What a wonderful story of finding where God wants you. Riley is returning home from war, not the man he left mentally or physically and his best friend Paige, whom he has secretly loved will be his caretaker. Hidden feelings, misunderstandings, faith, and finding your way in this messy thing called life is the theme. I love the characters and the return of old ones from the previous books in this series. I enjoyed the tying up of Aunt Trudy's and the sheriffs past. Denise Hunter has a way of drawing you in and not wanting to lay the book down.

Deana5 Stars Out Of 5what is in a kiss?October 29, 2016DeanaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5It's so nice to read a new book from one of my favorite authors. I opened the book and started reading and before I knew it, I was crying. The beginning is so emotional and felt so real I wanted to go hug the couple and wish them well. Riley and Paige have been best friends forever. As Riley exits the plane, he is a completely different person from when he was home last.
After a tour in Afghanistan Riley comes home to face some challenges. What happened to him in Afghanistan? I loved his character so much. He is a strong and fit man with perhaps a bit of stubbornness to go along with his moody attitude. I loved when he discovers he will be staying with Paige for awhile. Can two best friends live together after Riley ran off to the Marines and left the one girl he loved?
Paige is a sweet and caring person. She has a big heart and wants to take care of everyone. I loved her devotion to caring for animals at the shelter. Her warmth and compassion was so well written that I wanted to be her friend. The author writes a very emotional journey between two people trying to find their way in life. The chemistry is undeniable between them as they try to overcome situations that keep them apart. I loved how the author writes Riley's character with some inner struggles that shine a light on a difficult subject many veterans face . The story is an emotional roller coaster as the characters rely on their faith to find happiness. Have you ever struggled with something and knew the only answer was to trust God?
Thank you for a story that is filled with hope, budding romances and learning to trust again. The author has provided discussion questions at the end that I highly recommend you read. The book has left me with hope that past hurts can be forgiven and sometimes a simple kiss can bring a lifetime of happiness.
