About That Kiss (Heartbreaker Bay #5) by Jill Shalvis 


When love drives you crazy . . .

When sexy Joe Malone never calls after their explosive kiss, Kylie shoves him out of her mind. Until she needs a favor, and it’s a doozy. Something precious to her has been stolen and there’s only one person with unique finder-and-fixer skills that can help—Joe. It means swallowing her pride and somehow trying to avoid the temptation to throttle him—or seduce him.

the best thing to do . . .

No, Joe didn’t call after the kiss. He’s the fun time guy, not the forever guy. And Kylie, after all she’s been through, deserves a good man who will stay. But everything about Kylie makes it damned hard to focus, and though his brain knows what he has to do, his heart isn’t getting the memo.

… is enjoy the ride.

As Kylie and Joe go on the scavenger hunt of their lives, they discover surprising things about each other. Now, the best way for them to get over “that kiss” might just be to replace it with a hundred more.


5 out of 5 stars

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 fantastic, all gruff and bossy but really sweet and caring. I loved learning about his past and having him let his guard down. Those moments when he opens to her were wonderful. I loved, loved, loved Kylie! She was a tough spitfire that spoke her mind and I loved that feistiness and attitude. Together they had so many great scenes with excellent back and forth banter and I enjoyed the build of them coming together immensely.

This is one of those stories that had me smiling the entire time. It's so entertaining to read and I keep having little bursts of laughter bubble out of me. Adding to that is a really well rounded cast of characters that I feel like I've come to know since the series began. I love seeing couples and people from other books and getting updates on them, it was fantastic.

The writing was great with excellent details. I loved the dual POVs and thought both Kylie and Joe had great voices. There was a really nice mystery, suspense element happening which is one of the things that brought Joe and Kylie together and I really like how everything flowed. There were also these subtle, emotional moments that I thought were perfect when one of them opened up. There a lot of small elements woven in and I kept thinking, this is just getting better and better.

This story was just so ridiculously fun to read with these great characters who where on an adventure of sorts. I loved Joe and Kylie’s chemistry and heat, getting to know them, the bits of drama, and the overall feel the story gave me. A must read! Reading a Jill Shalvis book always feels like coming home because I know exactly what I'm going to get.
