Review: Every Little Kiss by Kendra Leigh Castle

Book Blurb:

The second novel featuring small New England town of Harvest Cove, where the residents know that Emma Henry likes things nice and orderly—but everyone has to let loose sometimes…

Event planner Emma Henry is used to focusing all her attention on reaching her goals and letting romance fall by the wayside. But when her sister Sam’s bachelorette party prompts the most tightly-wound Henry to let her hair down, Emma’s night ends with the entire town linking her to a man who could lay waste to anyone’s best-laid plans.

Army vet Seth Andersen thought that joining the police department in sleepy Harvest Cove would offer a quiet, normal life. But when he finds himself responsible for uptight Emma Henry at the end of her wildest night ever, his world turns unexpectedly complicated—and he’s surprised to discover he doesn’t mind at all…

My Review:

I loved Every Little Kiss by Kendra Leigh Castle!  With a perfect mix of romance, humor and real life, I was quickly immersed in Emma and Seth's lives.  I loved these two characters.  Emma is unique, strong and determined.  She has her own way and view on life, her experiences making her who she is today.  She's cautious and difficult for most people to really know.  Seth is different though.  He is intrigued by her from the first time he sees her.  When they actually meet it is highly entertaining and sweet!  Emma is determined not to let him behind her brick walls, but Seth doesn't give up as easily as most people.  What follows is a well paced, emotional journey as Seth and Emma struggle to give up what they think they want versus what their hearts are telling them.

Seth and Emma are powerful and lovable main characters.  Kendra writes them so well I felt like I was right there with them.  They are believable, frustrating (Emma!), and complement each other so well it seems they are meant to be together.  But being together means taking risks, and the decision to do that is not an easy one, nor one that is automatic for either of them.  Their struggles, hurts, and hopes brought them to life.  I loved the maturity of their characters and that things are not easy for either of them for different reasons.

There are great secondary characters and a good look at small town life in Harvest Cove in Every Little Kiss.  All of that adds dimension and realism to the plot, strongly supporting the main characters.

Every Little Kiss was a book I was meant to read.  Well paced, easy to read and feel a  part of, Kendra took me away to another place for a great time.  I'd highly recommend Every Little Kiss to any romance reader!

5/5 stars!
