Early Review: One More Kiss by Katherine Gabera

December 14, 2012
Title: One More Kiss
Author: Katherine Gabera
Publication: Harlequin Blaze; Dec 18, 2012
Genre: Romance, Adult
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
One taste isn't enough…Since her divorce, cupcake queen Alysse Dresden prefers baking over boys…until a phone order from a sexy-voiced stranger melts her insides like butter. It isn't until Alysse makes the delivery in person that she realizes—too late—that the only man who can do that is her ex-husband….

After Marine Corps ace Jay Michener walked out on his weeklong marriage, he never stopped thinking of Alysse. Wanting her. And with his reenlistment only weeks away, he wants a second chance.

But Alysse has plans of her own—and if the way into a guy's heart is through his stomach, maybe the way out of it is through his bed!

     One More Kiss is about second chances in love. Jay and Alysse were married for a week in Vegas, got a divorce, and never saw each other for four years. The Vegas marriage thing wasn't even that important in the book, the whole focus was that Jay left her while she was asleep like a coward, and never contacted or explained about his abrupt leave to Alysse.

     Jay is a marine, and kind of a loner, so I get why he would leave Alysse in the beginning, and now wants to have a second chance at first love. It was a very romantic story, and I was rooting for them to work their issues, and get back together. I felt for Alysse throughout the book, there was always the fear of him leaving again, and I did cry with her at times, but nevertheless I fell in love with their story. The one thing that really annoyed me was the ending. I hated what happened, and it was too immature of Jay to act that way, and expect things to be okay after a few days. Mistakes are made once, not again, and again. I get that the author was going for a happy ending, but she should have given Jay & Alysse some time to think things through. Either that or Alysse was a very easy person.

     One More Kiss was a fast, fun read, and I'm happy to have given it a chance. I loved Katherine Gabera's writing, it made very easy to get into the story, and relate to the characters. The cover does promises an overly steamy read, and we did got some but not what I expected. I would recommend romance readers to give this book a try. I'll be looking forward to more books by the author.
