CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Holly Cortelyou created an emotional story in Kiss Me, Trouble. Alix’s character, driven and owned by her work, needed this break even if she would not admit it. However, meeting Cole ripped the scab off an old wound and hurt resulted. I could feel her emotions as she faced Cole for the first time in six years.
The attraction and love‘s still there for both. However, can they once again find what Cole threw away? Will they rekindle their love? Cole’s seen as a man who made a bad decision and regrets the hurt he caused and losing the love of his life.
The slow unfolding of the reason Cole left, keeps the reader glued to the pages. Including the abandoned pup added an extra element to the story. The pace of the book‘s in line with the length of story and with well-developed characters, Holly Cortelyou crafted a fine story. Her descriptions of the area were so vivid I could see the area in my mind’s eye, feel the breeze and smell the forest trails. I would not hesitate to buy this book for myself or friend.
