friendship that evolves into more.
Matt Reed, taking a hiatus from the band Riley Shaughnessy, decides to take a shot at Broadway where his attempt flops miserably. Crucified by the media, Matt, with the urging of Shaughnessy’s manager, disappears for a while until the bad publicity dies down. Matt heads back to the last place anyone would look for him, his home town and his friend’s home…just in time for his best friend’s delicious sister to move in as well.
Vivienne’s life is coming together. She is moving into a marvelous cottage on her brother’s property and it has been custom designed to fit her perfectly. She got a marvelous promotion with the cooking blog she’s been working. So, she is shocked to discover Matt, her brother’s best friend and the man she shared an amazing kiss with once, residing in her brother’s home.
Matt’s a hot mess, full of self-doubt and quite a few scars from his past.
Vivienne has a bright future but struggles with her feelings toward Matt.
I found One More Kiss to have a long building relationship with lots of life happenings in between. They build a friendship that evolves into more.
The first 75% of the book, I was thinking the story was a little too slow. But Chase did something right because in last 25%, I found myself brought to tears by the character connection Chase was building in the first 3/4th of the storytelling.
I received this ARC copy from SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca in exchange for a honest and volunteer review.
Amazing Matty Reed!
Such an amazing new read from Samantha Chase! The start of a spin-off series to Chase's Shaunessy's, One More Kiss was a fabulous beginning. Vivienne and Matt had wonderful chemistry and it's always fun to see the party guy rock star fall! Laugh out loud moments and hot moments and sweet moments and heavy moments... This one had it all! Can't wait for the next one!
This is the first book in the new Shaughnessy Brothers spin off series and it is fantastic!! This series surrounds the members of Riley Shaughnessy's band. This is Matt Reed's story and it is jam packed with all the emotion I've come to expect from a Samantha Chase story. Matt has put all he has into a Broadway show that flops right out of the gate. To control the media blow back for the band Matt returns to his hometown. A place no one would ever think to look for him. Coming face to face with Vivienne Forrester has his world spinning. He's sure the next couple of months will be the ride of his life if she's anywhere near.
An awesome book and one I highly recommend.
