July 26, 2016


New York Times bestselling author Rachel Gibson returns with this dazzling love story filled with sizzle, sass, and just a bit of southern charm . . .

“Hello, Ms. Vivian . . . it’s been a long time.”

And with those words, Vivian Leigh Rochet nearly melted. It’s been years since she last saw Henry Whitley-Shuler. She was a teenager scrubbing houses for a living. He was the gorgeous son of rich parents, not fit for the likes of her.

Vivian had vowed to get out of Charleston, become a big Hollywood star, and stick it to the snooty girls who made her cry.

She got what she wanted—and more—but why does her glamorous life seem so trivial?

Henry got out too . . . making it all the way to Wall Street, until a heart attack forced him to trade in his cufflinks for a good set of hand tools.

Making furniture soothes his soul, but escaping the Whitley-Shuler heritage is nearly impossible. And now he’s come face-to-face with the one who got away. He’s not looking for love. He’s not even looking for sex . . . so why is resisting her the hardest thing he’s ever done?

My Thoughts:
Oh my heavens what adorable story. Just Kiss Me was a good time read. I love how every few chapters you read Vivien's journal entry. They were super fun reading her 13 year old self. She set out to accomplish a lot in her life. Plus, we got to see how she viewed Henry, his mother, and brother. Now Henry's mother is no saint, granted she did help Vivien during her time of need, but his mother is a piece of work at times. However, the interaction between Henry and Vivien is great. They started out disliking one another, and Vivien never quite understood why. Yet there is a scandalous reveal as secrets start to be dug out of the grave. I have to say I didn't see coming.

If you have read Rachel Gibson, Just Kiss Me might be one to look into. The story had me laughing and crying at times. It was fun to see the writings of a 13 girl who had big dreams. This would a be story for me to come back and read again. You get to see some very southern ways, and some people would do anything to keep secrets buried deep. Basically, if you are in the mood for adorable, you don't have to look to far. I hope that Henry's brother gets a book, but if he doesn't I will survive.
