Really enjoyed this book. It's about a woman who gets a chance at true love with her childhood crush. Definitely recommended. ( )

Light, sweet and tasty. A book with "kissing" in the title should feature lots of it, and the author does not disappoint.
...He moaned and deepened the kiss, His body pressed hers into the bed. What started as a slow, careful exploration turned hot and unyielding. Then after a while, it slowed again, as if Luke wanted to savor every sensation. She didn't want him to stop. She didn't want this dream to end.

She ran her fingers through his hair and pulled him tighter. He tasted of mint and hot chocolate and whatever he was doing with his lips had her toes curling. She kissed him with every bit of passion she had inside her and matched his explosive pace. Her body hummed with oh-so-welcome quivers.
Likewise, a book about the Maid of Honor should include lots of wedding prep, and that's in here, too: dinners and showers and wedding preparation.

The emotional traumas and barriers that keep Luke and Sela from becoming a couple are thin and transparent as a bridal veil, but that didn't bother me. Fun, quick, sexy read. ( )

Sela's best friend is getting married and she has agreed to be the maid of honor. She has so many plans on how to make this time wonderful and exciting for her friend. There is only one problem, her friend's brother, Luke, will also be in the wedding. Sela had a crush on her friend's brother when they were all still in school. He made a thoughtless comment that Sela still remembers. The comment embarrassed her then, in front of her peers, and she still turned red every time she thought of it.
Luke has been all over the world since leaving their home town. He is a famous photographer now. Sela is a hometown girl who would love to travel the world, but the opportunity has never been presented. Luke is to be in the wedding and when the chosen best man tells the groom that he can't make it to the wedding. The groom asks Luke to step in and take his place. This throws Sela and Luke together and makes for some interesting reading.
This is a well written short story with fun characters and a romantic plot. I loved it. ( )

Luke Watters is a world renowned extreme sports photographer. Luke thrives on adventure. The riskier, the better. Unfortunately for Luke, his job has almost cost him his life. Forced to take some time off, he uses his sister's wedding as a chance to recover from his injuries and spend time with his family. The last thing Luke expected was to come face to face with one his biggest regrets, Sela Sullivan.

Living in small town Cascade, Oregon your whole life is not so bad. Being a pediatric nurse at the local hospital can be rewarding at times. Being the maid of honor at your best friends' wedding, a dream come true. Being the BEST maid of honor a girl could ever have, easy peezy. Having the best man get stuck in a war zone, not so good. Having the best man be replaced by your high school crush turned nemesis, Luke Watters, calls for desperate measures. Welcome to the life of Sela Sullivan.

KISSING THE MAID OF HONOR is the story of two people who have been interested in each other for years, but because of who they are, they have to keep their distance. Sela Sullivan is the best friend of Vanessa, who happens to be the younger sister of Luke Watters, Sela's teenage crush. Luke is also the best friend of Sela's older brother, Shane. In high school, Sela got her chance to kiss the guy of her dreams. Unfortunately, the guy didn't say, "Wow, that was fantastic". No, no, Luke said, "You kiss like a corpse". So for ten years, Sela has despised Luke.

The story starts off with Sela making a wish at Cascade's notorious wishing well. Sela's wish is a little different from most. She's not looking for love, long-term happiness, or wealth. No, Sela is wishing that Luke keeps his distance from her and that their interactions are kept to the minimum.

This is what I love about this book: KISSING THE MAID OF HONOR allows you to watch two people fall in love against the wishes of those who are supposed to love them. Sela and Luke are great together. They allow the other to discover new things about themselves. They have a teasing relationship, which quickly becomes flirtatious.

What I didn’t like about the book, was Luke and Sela's families. Vanessa and Shane, Sela's older brother and Luke's best friend, don't want the two together. They even go as far as to say that they can’t have anything to do with each other, outside of the wedding.

Bottom line.... If you’re looking for a wonderful romance, this is the book for you. Luke and Sela are people who you would want to know and will root for them to be together. Assuming this is the first book in a series, there are several characters I can't wait to read more about (Shane and Kagan, Erin, the younger sister of Vanessa and Luke).

Robin Bielman has delivered a sweet story that will have you captivated from the start. This heart-warming story has realistic characters, a great story line and is an easy read. Just when you think you know exactly what is going to happen next, there is just enough of a twist to leave you guessing again! Sela Sullivan and Luke Watters have amazing chemistry throughout the book that makes you cheer for them as they discover how to conquer the past and heal old wounds. Can two people with a not-so-great history find a way to forgive and forget for the sake of love and happiness? I loved this book from the first chapter and would recommend this book to any fan of sweet romance! I look forward to reading more books by Robin Bielman.
