A kiss can change everything…

When Michelle Seaborne is assigned Alexander Trent at the music label she works for, she knows she’s in for a rough time. Fifteen years ago, Alexander was her first kiss. The moment, and his handsome face, have haunted Michelle’s dreams ever since. Of course, he doesn’t remember her. So, if she plays her cards carefully, he won’t, and they can move on with the project, her heart unscathed. What she doesn’t count on is a sensuous night in his arms, and the hope for something more. Any beliefs for a relationship are dashed when Alexander hands her a box, a thank you for a night, and a goodbye.

A man can only make so many mistakes, and Alexander is ready to stop making them. At least, that’s what he keeps telling himself. An unexpected passion filled night changes everything, and unsure of the future he can give, he does the only thing he knows how. He ends anything before it can begin. Something about Michelle pulls at his memory though. Despite her assurance they’ve never met, Alexander can’t help but wonder, how does he know her? As doubts about Michelle’s words grow, so do his feelings towards her. Only now, how does he redeem himself?

Review: First Kiss is a short contemporary romance that quickly captured my attention. This book had a unique storyline and interesting characters that were both strong and needy. I found myself laughing at parts and getting teary-eyed at others. What I didn’t like was how it read choppy in parts, especially between scenes in the same chapter. I would recommend this novella overall, and would read other books by Elaina Lee.

Quote: She rested her head against his chest, and listened to his steady heartbeat. “And what else will you be doing with this new-found time?”

“Besides loving you? I don‟t know yet. Help me figure it out?”
