Originally posted HERE .

One More Kiss delivers exactly what is says on the box: a reunion romance with plenty of sex, between a military man and a woman who bakes a lot of cupcakes.

It was perhaps a little silly for me to request this one, as the term ‘Cupcake Queen’ features rather prominently in the book’s blurb. The book therefore started off fighting an uphill battle with me, as I find the current worldwide obsession with cupcakes even more baffling than the mania around sex-filled Twilight f

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

Pretty good book and second chance story. Aly and Jay haven't seen each other in four years. Jay is coming up on decision time as to whether he continues in the Marines or gets out. He hasn't been able to forget Aly and regrets the way he left her. He would like a second chance to win her back. Aly has been working hard to get her bakery off the ground and hasn't dated much. She doesn't seem to be able to connect with any of the men she has gone out with. When he reappears in her life she realiz ...more

This book tell the story of Alysse who under a different circumstance would not have expected to meet her ex husband ever again. An ex husband who did a disappearing act on the last day of their honeymoon. To give him a credit, it was a shotgun marriage held in Las Vegas where both of them at their vulnerable self. Jay on the pre – text of trying to make up to his girlfriend called Alysse and seeking her professional touch to make a cake for him and to self deliver it to the hotel. Imagine the s ...more
Story started off okay. I liked that Jay was trying to win Aly back. But he waits 4 years??? Four freaking years!?!?!?! The time spand bothered me. Aly having sex with Jay after 4 long years and then proceeds to tell him she's going to use him for sex so that she can get over him bothered me. (I know guys in romance books do this all the time and there shouldn't be a doubled standard..blah, blah. blah. Stil didn't like it). I didn't like Aly much. Thought she was a judgmental hag, getting on Jay ...more

I don't normally read Mills and Boon except for some of my favourite historical authors plus one or two of their Modern and Medical series in the past. However, I thought that I would give one of their Blaze novels a try.
Thanks to Katherine Garbera's excellent writing I wasn't disappointed. I don't wish to spoil the plot but suffice to say the heroine has rebuilt her life and is a successful businesswoman when the hero - a blast from the past - comes back into her life.
The plotline is made all

It was a cute, quick read. I didn't quite understand the whole 4 years going past thing and in some parts it said 5 years. I also thought it didn't quite make sense when he sees her and says something like he wasn't expecting to want her so much. It didn't make sense because after 4 years and he says he can't get her off his mind and came to win her back. (view spoiler) ...more

Very little character growth for Jay. It's hard to let others in, but stop running.
The ending was too rushed. She gave in too easily at the end and didn't question it.
Not very realistic or romantic.

“One more kiss” è un altro di quei libri finiti nella mia lista dei libri da leggere in un input senza nè capo nè coda, consumato nel corso di un paio di sere e di cui non avevo neanche letto la trama, come capita di solito con una romance del genere. Non mi faccio tante domande, parto per la tangente e inizio a scrivere. Di solito con i libri di Harlequin non ho mai problemi. So quello che mi posso aspettare e non ho alcun tipo di pretesa. Ecco perché anche in questo caso ho ottenuto ciò che vo ...more
awalnya tidak terlalu berharap banyak dari novel ini. Tapi kisah dan ketakutan jay terhadap lingkungann sekitar-nya bikin cerita ini menarik. soalnya gw hampir tidak pernah baca seorang Hero yang tidak percaya diri menghadapi kehidupan di luar kehidupan army-nya.Jay yang tidak punya rumah karena dia merasa tidak ada alasan untuk punya rumah karena dia tidak punya orang-orang yang dituju untuk pulang. Menurut gw itu menyedihkan banget. Disaat dia "on leave" dari army pasti dia selalu tinggal di h ...more

The cover says it all really. One More Kiss is hot, passionate, sexy. Think of all the heat imaginable in a Harlequin Romance novel and double it.

After a whirlwind romance and wedding in Las Vegas, Alysse wakes up to find herself alone in her honeymoon suite, left to seek a divorce and mend her broken heart after Jay ups and leaves.
Now he's back, and he wants Alysse back. A quick read but packing a punch that is sure to leave you reeling for days afterward.

I think it was a great love story! Some of the particulars of the Marine Corps are off and I only know that because I'm a Marine brat and spouse. I really enjoyed how Jay in the end realized what he wanted. Aly absolutely deserved the best after he walked out twice on her and he gave the best to her. Loved it!

Verging between 1 star (did not like) and 2 (okay).

- repetitive. Both characters keep repeating the same thoughts... kinda makes it feel like extra lines to bulk up the word count and story length.
- cheesy
- dialogue - my god, not realistic. They flit and jump back and forth in their conversations and it doesn't flow like it should.

Verdict: not for me.
