Review: KISS THIS by Hadley Quinn
(This book includes mature content, including sex and language)
22-year-old Camryn Jacobs lost the love of her life once and vows to never kiss another guy unless she’s in love with him. When she meets Teague, their attraction to one another is off the charts, and for the first time in two years, she wants to disregard her rule.
But Camryn makes a bet that he can’t go just one week without kissing her. She’s protecting her own fragile heart, but her wit and smart mouth end up driving Teague crazy.
When Teague is equally skilled at her challenge, their friendship turns complicated. He’s not at all what she assumed, and he makes her feel things she never expected to feel. But sharing her true reasons for the no-kiss bet hurts too much and she keeps him in the dark.
Teague has his own secrets to hide, starting with his last name. It’s the reason he left town–to lick his wounds until he can piece his life back together. His time with Camryn proves that it might actually be possible, but with the threat of his family and his past ruining all that he’s finally gained, can he really take that risk again?
Loving might be easy; learning to trust again could be too difficult to achieve…
Dawn’s Review 4.5 Stars
Absolutely loved Kiss This!! Camryn and Teague have some fantastic dialogue and banter. Many sweet and beyond sexy moments. Teague is one HOT HOT man and Camryn is now on my Kick Ass Chick list with her mean right hook and sassy attitude.
There are tons of secrets and I found myself constantly waiting for the next one to drop. I was not disappointed with how they were revealed. Hadley Quinn held my attention throughout the book. The secondary characters were very well-written and added intrigue, laughter, and moments of interactions that were real and heightened the story.
Let’s chat about Camryn – love her and her kick ass fiestiness. She’s faced some very difficult loss and is not very welcoming. But at the same time, she knows who she is, owns her sexuality, is responsible, and doesn’t take shit from anyone. She’s not ready to move on from her tragedy until she literally runs into Teague.

“This isn’t kissing you,” he whispered, his breath and lips tickling her skin. “I’m just talking and happen to be very, very close to you.”
Oh. Good. Lord.
Teague…holy new book boyfriend!! I love this guy! He’s sweet, funny, gorgeous, and knows how to make a girl scream! But he’s also running from some things in his life that he’s not ready to be open about. Until he meets Camryn and starts to live again.
This is their story of learning whether or not they can trust again, how they can learn to feel again, and how life can sometimes lead you to just the person you need to make you complete.

About the Author
Besides books, I love music, dance, kickboxing, surfing, and sunshine. If I’m not riding a wave, I’m at a concert or traveling. Doesn’t tell you much, but you’ll learn way more about me from social media or my blog site!
My writing: I don’t write short stories. I’d rather have one full story instead of turning it into two. I believe in order to build a relationship with a book, it takes time to get to know it. I like my characters to be well-developed. I like the story to show rather than tell. I like my heroes to have integrity and my heroines to be strong. Just as importantly, I like them to have a sense of humor. I believe in adversity because it is a natural part of life, and I like my characters to learn that as well. And I definitely *prefer* happily ever afters!
Thanks for reading!
