That First Kiss by J.C. Valentine Virtual Book Tour
Mercurial and charming, Tate Larson is a rising author and playboy who has a different woman on his arm every night of the week. Focused on his work, Tate has no plans to settle down any time soon. That is until he meets his pretty new assistant, Piper Donovan.
Desperate to escape the promise of backwater living, Piper ditched her Alabama hometown and never looked back. That was almost two years ago. Now that she is out of a job and her bank account is running on fumes, she’s desperate to find a job, fast. She finds the break she is searching for when she lands a position at Bookish Temptations. A little dancing and a lot of drinks with the girls seem the perfect way to celebrate. After a brief but explosive encounter with a man she was never supposed to see again turns out to be the same man she will be bending over backwards to please, her every instinct tells her to run. But when running means leaving the life she has struggled so hard to create, Piper decides her only option is to continue working for the devastatingly sexy Tate Larson…even if it kills her.
Unable to deny their growing attraction, they struggle to keep their distance in a relationship that requires anything but.
Oh my! This book almost immediately heats up. A great book written by one of my new favorite authors!
J.C Valentine tears up the sheets with this book! With the utterly charming, headstrong, determined Piper and the demanding, cold, sexy Tate the characters are a quite the match. It’s interesting to see their characters develop a relationship no matter how hard they try fighting it. Well, Piper does anyway. Piper is determined not to screw up her new job, she doesn’t want to land back in small town Alabama. But what can you do when your new boss is your one night stand you have been having fantasies about since that night?
I have to agree with some of the previous reviews that I have read online about The First Kiss, the bathroom scene is undoubtedly one of the best in the book. The author burned the pages with that one! But this book is so much more than that. A chance at true love when the odds and the past are stacked against you. Just how hard would you fight when you never wanted to put yourself in the position of caring for someone ever again? I think everyone can relate to the mindset, I think we have all been hurt that bad by someone we cared for.
If you have read the first book in the Night Calls series, Stranded, you will be happy to see Poppy and Felix make appearances in That First Kiss. Which thrilled me to pieces. Not only do I like the characters Poppy and Felix, Poppy by herself has a charismatic draw that readers will love. It is nice to see the ‘after’. Felix was a dynamic character in Stranded and it was awesome to see him cast as Tate Larson’s boss and close friend in this book.
This book has been hotter than the weather in Cleveland and honestly burns the pages up! Get your copy NOW! Or better yet, enter below for a chance to win a copy! And don’t forget to show some love to J.C Valentine’s Facebook page as well!
