“Admit it. Admit that you wanted that kiss as much as I did.”
I wish someone would have warned me about my best friend Deacon Cross when we were nine.
Because nearly sixteen years later, the only man I’ve forbidden myself to cross that line with still doesn’t understand my rules of friendship.
Best friends aren’t supposed to kiss.
They’re not supposed to dream of having insanely hot sex while working together, either. And they’re definitely not supposed to keep secrets.
And now I wish I had warned myself about this two days ago. Right before Deacon kissed me for the second time. And all of the rules changed…
The Kiss is the fourth book in the Manhattan Nights series by the talented Natalie Wrye. I’m a big fan of Natalie’s writing, characters and plot twists. I don’t read a lot of romantic suspense, but Natalie is my go-go-author for this genre. I never know what’s going to happen and I always yell, “What?!” at least a few times while reading. If you’ve been reading this series, you already know Kayla and Deacon. They were best friends when they were younger but time and circumstances caused them to drift apart. They had friendship rules. No kissing was at the top of the list until six month ago when they just couldn’t help themselves. They haven’t seen or spoken to each other, but now that Kayla was in NY hiding won’t be easy. Especially when she shows up at his bar. Looking gorgeous. Deacon has a lot of regrets in his life. Kissing Kayla is not one of them. They can’t seem to say what they mean. Mean what they say or get out of their own way! It’s hot, sexy, frustrating and intense. What will it take for Deacon and Kayla to finally admit they are more than friends? Always have been? I loved this story! Deacon was everything I wanted him to be and more. Kayla is stronger than she thinks! Overall, I laughed, teared up, got mad, smiled, had to fan myself. Looking forward to more from some of my favorite secondary characters!
He tastes of broken promises—all the ones I’d ever made to myself. The embodiment of dark daydreams, the man in front of me is everything I want and nothing I need, and yet I crave him all the same.
Now get the first three books in the series in a box set!
