Summary

It started with a kiss.

Admittedly, it was a moment of weakness on my part. But even the strong-willed have been known to fall for a hard body underneath a tailored suit and a five o’clock shadow coating a sharp jawline. It didn’t matter that Jackson St. James was nothing but trouble. Trouble was just my type. Been there. Done him. Not making that mistake again. 

We were friends, a low-key affair we designed ourselves—over before we began. After all, together we made no sense.

Jackson is into sports. I prefer the arts. He gulps beer. I sip champagne. While I might not be described as humble, his arrogance is through the roof. But when he asks if we can talk, my traitorous Louboutins come to a full stop. Although I’ve seen enough movies to know how these conversations go, maybe, just maybe, he’ll surprise me. 

He has before....

We may have started with a kiss, but how will we end?

It Started with a Kiss is a friends-with-benefits-to-lovers opposites-attract contemporary romance.

This is such a heartwarming read.

I needed this story more then I would have ever guessed. Once I started reading this sweet friends with benefits to lovers story I could not put it down. Marlow and Jackson are made for each other and I loved the twists and turns the story took getting them to their HEA. I hope you'll pick this book up ASAP and give it a read. Also grab the audible if you're a fan of listening while you read/work.
Sebastian York and Summer Morton are the narrators of the audible version and they have done a five star job on this story giving it an extra special delivery of feelings and compassion and love.

Seriously?!?!

I had high hopes for this book. But I am 3-hours in, and I have already stopped it twice and listened to three other books that were FAR more interesting. I am a huge romance fan, but I have yet to hear anything in this book that sounds remotely like a plot. It's mostly designer names and name-dropping, and even the beginning (which had great potential) didn't draw me in enough to keep it interesting. The sex is fun & descriptive, (and who doesn't love listening to Sebastian York?!), but there is not enough depth in the characters (especially the female) to feel the heat that could have been there.
I am stopping this one again, and doubtful I will return to it. There are FAR better listens than this one.
