Book Review - And Then He Kissed Me

And Then He Kissed Me
Melinda Curtis
January 2020

The chocolate wars… 

 Botanist Dr. Aubrey Summer has two goals for her trip to Ecuador – fulfill her bridesmaid duties and confront billionaire Marcos Alfaro about his efforts to steal her work. The wedding is being held at a hotel owned by Marcos and he’s rumored to be a guest. But along the way, Aubrey is distracted by a handsome man named Nino, a former employee with a crush, and Grandma Dotty, who’s got romance on her bucket list. 

More at stake… 

Marcos “Nino” Alfaro didn’t accumulate his wealth playing by the rules. Yes, he hired Dr. Summer’s assistant, but the principled young man won’t divulge the secrets to growing a richer strain of cocoa. When Nino meets Dr. Summer, it’s clear what he needs to do – use romance to learn more about her research. After all, he’s got to turn around the chocolate company he just purchased. There are millions at stake, not to mention his pride and – surprisingly – his heart. 

Can he pass The Kissing Test? 

Between The Pages 
This series has such a fun premise; the heroes must pass the kissing test from the Summer sisters, and book 2 of The Kissing Test series was as enjoyable as the first book. Filled with lots of embarrassing moments and put-a-smile-on-your-face scenes adds a good punch of humour. There’s plenty of tension, manipulation, revenge, chocolate, and a drop-dead gorgeous, charming hero! The lead characters are adorable and you instantly know they belong together. The supporting cast is just as enjoyable, especially Dotty, Aubrey’s grandmother, who rules every scene she is in. Dotty is off-the-chart funny and delightful. An emotional filled romance and comedy draw you into the pages of this story. There’s even cringing drama involving a spider. A perfect read on a lazy afternoon.
