New York Times bestselling author Rachel Gibson returns with this dazzling love story filled with sizzle, sass, and just a bit of southern charm...

"Hello, Ms. Vivian . . . it's been a long time."

And with those words, Vivian Leigh Rochet nearly melted. It's been years since she last saw Harrison Whitley-Shuler. She was a teenager scrubbing houses for a living. He was the gorgeous son of rich parents, not fit for the likes of her.

Vivian had vowed to get out of Charleston, become a big Hollywood star, and stick it to the snooty girls who made her cry.

She got what she wanted—and more—but why does her glamorous life seem so trivial?

Harrison got out too . . . making it all the way to Wall Street, until a heart attack forced him to trade in his cufflinks for a good set of hand tools.

Making furniture soothes his soul, but escaping the Whitley-Shuler heritage is nearly impossible. And now he's come face-to-face with the one who got away. He's not looking for love. He's not even looking for sex . . . so why is resisting her the hardest thing he's ever done?

***Our Thoughts***

Kassiah: I really enjoy reading Rachel Gibson’s books, and since I’m all about Southern Charm, naturally, of course I was crazy excited to read this one. It wasn’t my favorite book, but I liked it.

Following her mother’s death, Hollywood starlet Vivien returns to Charleston only to run into the guy she had a huge crush on for most of her life, Harrison. She and Harrison never had a future as kids because of their totally different stations in life (he was mega-rich and she was poor), but now the tables have turned since she’s a big star. What happens when the playing field is leveled and sparks start flying?

Second chance romances are some of my favorites, and I loved the diary-flashbacks (even though Vivian was bratty) and delving into Harrison and Vivian’s history. There was definitely Southern charm woven throughout the story with a picturesque setting, and the characters had good banter and (some) chemistry.

There were some things that didn’t work for me, and something that really didn’t work for me that I can’t say here, but it made me drop my rating. I also would have liked more at the end and a reason to like Vivian 🙂 I didn’t feel a huge connection to these characters.

With that being said, Just Kiss Me had some really sweet moments and some hotness. If you love chick lit, you know Rachel Gibson is synonymous with sweet contemporary romance. This wasn’t her best book, but it’s still worth checking out, especially if she’s a favorite for you.
