The Mistletoe Kisser (Blue Moon #8) by Lucy Score

“Just because I don’t run around with a stupid grin on my face all day every day doesn’t mean I’m grumpy.”

Ryan Sosa, grumpy former corporate accountant, has had it up to here with surprises. He didn’t see getting fired coming. And he certainly didn’t anticipate flying across the country to the world’s hippie-est, happiest, most annoying town to save his great-uncle from some mysterious emergency.

Not only is there actual snow on the ground, but the town of Blue Moon appears to have decked its halls with elves on psychedelics. But he doesn’t have time to be snarky about the impending Winter Solstice and Multicultural Holiday Celebration—whatever the hell that is. Not when he’s got a farm to save, a free-range sheep that he may or may not have nudged with his stupid microscopic rental car, and some small-town veterinarian telling him she can’t take the animal off his hands.

Dr. Sammy Ames has a practice to manage and a fundraising crisis to attend to. She doesn’t have time to deal with a big-city grouch who doesn’t remember being her first kiss ever. Especially not since he wants to dump a sheep named Stan on her. So not happening. No matter how cute—and naked—Ryan is when he’s drunk.

Besides, as soon as he solves his uncle’s problem, he’ll be on the first flight out of Blue Moon, never to return again.

It will take a Winter Solstice Miracle or perhaps some matchmaking interference from the Beautification Committee to get these two to see eye-to-eye under the mistletoe…unless they got the Wrong Ryan after all. 

4.5 out of 5 stars

The Mistletoe Kisser was so freaking hysterical and entertaining! I laughed and smiled my way through the entire thing. It was outright fun and I had a blast reading it. From Sammy and Ryan to the animals, and to the zany townspeople this was just the escape I needed. Happy holidays indeed!

Sammy and Ryan were the best. Sammy is so sweet and does so much for everyone and Ryan's wound a bit tight and totally grumpy in an adorable way. They meet under crazy circumstances and then the fun really began. I loved the witty banter and fun antagonism and there was some seriously awesome internal dialogue happening. They were so opposite but I loved seeing them open up and get a different perspective on each other and how it all played out. There were just so many fantastic scenes in this that made it incredibly fun to read.

There was a delightful cast of characters upping the entertainment factor with sidesplitting dialogue. I loved the small town and how everyone was in everyone else’s business. I can’t tell you how many times I laughed out loud. This was the first book I’ve read from this series so I'm sure I was meeting previous couples, which made me want to go back and read their stories. I loved the crazy antics and mischief and the meddling matchmakers in town. I couldn’t get enough!

I love how Lucy Score tells a story, they're always fun and inviting and make me smile. I always feel like I'm on the edge of my seat because I can't wait to see what will happen next and what will come flying out of someone's mouth making me laugh. The dialogue was fun and clever and I laughed out loud so many times. The commentary relating to the animals was priceless! This was a fast-paced, exciting, and hilarious story just in time for the holidays. I cannot stress how entertaining this was. If you need some merriment in your life, you can’t go wrong with The Mistletoe Kisser!
