Just One Kiss by Courtney Walsh

Just One Kiss by Courtney Walsh

He broke her heart. Now, he’s back, and he’s determined to show her what they had isn’t over. . . and he can prove it with just one kiss.

Single mother Carly Collins likes predictability. However, when her son Jaden’s health is threatened, her neatly controlled world is tossed into a tailspin. Nothing is certain anymore, especially her feelings for Josh Dixon, Jaden’s father, her first love and the man responsible for shattering her heart sixteen years ago.

When Josh Dixon walked out of Harbor Pointe, he left behind his only shot at a real family. Now a successful tech mogul, the town rebel has found a cause—ensure his son’s recovery and prove to Carly and Jaden that he’s not the same guy he was back then.

Carly and Josh are forced to wade through messy emotions and questions that have gone unanswered for years, which would be easier if not for the pesky feelings, every bit as strong and impossible to ignore as they ever were.

Will forgiveness win, giving Carly and Josh a second chance at love . . . or will the past prove too much to overcome?

A small town romance about first love second chances and how our most beautiful life might look nothing like we planned.

Just One Kiss by Courtney Walsh quote

Just One Kiss combines innocence, guilt, attraction, anguish, faith, and forgiveness in a childhood-best-friends-to-romance-to-second-chance-romance like no other! In my opinion, every single element within this story is absolutely without a doubt on point! Characters are genuine, flawed, and relatable. The setting is picturesque and charming. The backstory is introduced in a gradual manner which always keeps the momentum moving forward.

The attraction between Carly and Josh is so electrified that the pages practically tingle! While chemistry is nice, their newfound unity in parenting and a deepening faith hint to the possibility of a true and lasting happily ever after. I highly recommend this book and I look forward to reading it again and again! Just One Kiss is without a doubt among my all-time favorite stories!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
