GENRE: Contemporary Romance
Cyber security consultant, Sloane Cooper is dumped by her wanna-be politician boyfriend, his parting shot—not only are you the worst girlfriend ever, but you're a lousy kisser, too! So she turns to game developer Miles Preston for “kissing lessons”. But Miles doesn't want to be Sloane's rebound guy. How does he convince his best friend steamy kisses are not enough? Traditional wooing won't work. Can a few well chosen gaming obstacles do the trick instead?
It 's a very sweet and funny story about friendship that becomes love.
Sloane isn't the ideal girlfriend of a man who wants to make a political career. She's a simple girl, and doesn't feel confortable in the clothes that she is forced to wear to make him look good. But she's in love, and strives. For him, however, is not enough and leaves her, even accusing her of being a bad kisser. Sloane asks to her best friend Miles to have kissing lessons. He is in love with her for more than two years but was at her side in silence so as not to ruin their friendship. Now he is ready to have a different relationship but Sloane is ready to risk?
It 's a short story, simple and fast but very pleasant. The characters are warm and lovable, are people I would like to know. The setting is amazing and cozy.
This is part of the Sellwood Novella series but could easily be read by itself. I highly recommend the other books., I loved the first one.
If you enjoy reading sweet romance, then definitely pick this up!
“What?” He stopped with his hand on the door knob. His annoyance no longer flashed, but had it faded enough not to come roaring back at the shocking idea that just popped into her head?
“You date a lot, right?”
“I wouldn't say a lot.”
“But the point is, you kiss the girls, so you've had some practice and are probably a good kisser, I'm guessing.” If her sketchy memory was correct, he was a damn fine kisser.
His eyes narrowed.
Sloane kind of questioned her sanity too, but nonetheless blurted out, “I could be a better kisser. A best friend would help me practice, wouldn't he?”
It was amazing really, seeing Miles shove a wall up between them, shutting her out as if they hadn't known each other for the best part of two years. He'd always been so open and transparent. The guy she could ask anything of, share anything with. Now he was looking at her with a stranger's eyes.
Being caught in that stare was almost worse than having Todd dump her. Sloane's stomach knotted.
He yanked the door open. “Think about working on my game. I really need you on this project.”
And then he was gone, leaving nothing behind. Not even his usual warm and cheery smile.
