A Mason Creek Series Standalone Novel
Author: Lacey Black
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 29, 2021
They say opposites attract, but I never understood the phrase until Leni Abbott walked into my office—or more specifically—into my office bathroom, while I was naked. Even as the pink stained her cheeks and she stuttered to speak, I was completely intrigued. She’s unlike anyone I’ve met before and, wildly enough, seems immune to my charms.
She also has a son. A young five-year-old boy, Trace, who blindsides me with his toothless grin and worms his way into my heart.
Together, they make me feel things. Things I’ve never expected. This single mom might not know it, but she could be everything I never knew I wanted.
I’ve heard all the rumors about Malcolm Wright, the playboy mayor with a trail of broken hearts left in his wake. I try to resist him, really I do, but he’s always there with those devastatingly gorgeous eyes and a sexy smile full of wicked intent. When he hires my business to clean his impressive house, I know I should stay away, yet find my resolve slipping.
Then he meets my son. I fully expect him to run for the hills, but that doesn’t happen. In fact, being near Trace only seems to draw Malcolm and I closer.
Now there are two hearts on the line as I put my trust and faith into the one man in Mason Creek who may not be able to give his own heart in return.

Perfect Kiss is part of the Mason Creek series featuring many authors. This one is by one of my favorites, Lacey Black. I haven’t read the other books yet but it does make me want to since I just know some of the supporting characters have their own books.
Malcolm is the Mayor of Mason Creek after following in his dad and grandpa’s footsteps. They are also lawyers in the small town of three-thousand. Unlike his dad and grandpa, he is a bachelor and has dated many women in town and not looking to settle down anytime soon. He never felt a connection until he saw her. A woman who surprised him from the very first moment he saw her. He was intrigued by the woman who seems shy but he saw through her while she saw all of him. He had to know more about her. He knew she was a single mom and a new business owner in town. And that she was beautiful and had the sweetest blush. Will she be the one to bring him to his knees?
Leni moved back home six-months ago with her five-year-old son, Trace. She wanted to be with her family and for Trace to get to know them. She owned two businesses, one cleaning houses and businesses and one owning the laundromat. She had no idea one of those jobs would lead her to him. The mayor. She heard the rumors. It’s a small town after-all. They may be true and after meeting him, they most likely were. He was definitely a charmer and she didn’t have time for all that business but he seemed to be everywhere. Especially when he was a new client.
I love these two!! They are unexpected. Sexy. Fun. And full of heart. I loved how they surprised each other. And the way Trace was right there with them was awesome. Lacey is amazing at including children into her stories. Perfect Kiss had the perfect blend of laughter, charm, heat, love, and family.
She tastes as sweet as honey. Her lips are like sin, ripe and made for kissing.
I want more.
