Sweet new adult series : This is the third book in Ms. Pizzitola’s Crush series and focuses on Mason, Brinley’s (the heroine from Just a Little Crush) BFF. He’s getting over his own crush on Brinley, so he volunteers to go to Port Lucia and work for his uncle’s fishing boat service for the summer. There he meets Felicity, a waitress in the small town who’s good friends with his cousins. Sparks fly and what starts as a sum

I became a fan of Renita Pizzitola's writing after reading (and loving) Just a Little Crush last year. The second book in this companion series, Just a Little Flirt, solidified that. And now, with Just a Little Kiss, I'm convinced that Pizzitola Just Can't Miss. :)

At 19, Felicity feels like her life is stalled in her small hometown. She yearns for more and is also desperate to escape the inevitable run-in's with her ex. But change doesn't come easy for Felicity. To avoid messy entanglements she

This was cute but the conflict was a bit underwhelming and I didn't feel the connection between the MCs.

Just A Little Kiss is the third Renita Pizzitola book I’ve read, having read the first two books in the Crush Series: Just A Little Crush and Just A Little Flirt. I loved the first two books in the series, and part of me expected my luck would change. That I’d go into Just A Little Kiss and find it didn’t hold up against the first two books.

I was wrong.

I loved Just A Little Kiss. Of the three books it was easily my favorite.

It’s Mason’s book!


Mason thought he was in love with Brinley, thinking that his heart was broken, he went to work for his uncle and cousins in the family fishing charter for the summer. He wants to have some fun, and perhaps found someone to med his broken heart. You can’t help but love Mason, I adored him ever since, and I was glad that he was finally going to have his happy ending. I admire his patience and tenacity to stand by Felicity.

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of Renita Pizzitola's books. I loved Just a Little Crush, the first book in the Crush series, which followed Brinley and Ryder. I equally loved Just a Little Flirt, the second book, which featured Brinley's roommate, Fallon. And I have to admit, when Just a Little Kiss showed up on Netgalley, I may have squealed a bit (just a bit) with delight that it was all about Brinley's best friend, Mason. I always liked Mason.

This is the third installment in the Crush series. Do you need to read all three to understand what is going on in this book, no, but you will be missing some great back story and you will understand Mason even better. However this story can be read as a stand alone if you so desire.

We met Mason in Just A Little Crush, he was the best friend of the female main character. I really felt for Mason in the first book

Big thanks to Flirt Publishing and NetGalley for an ARC copy for review.

I have been eagerly awaiting for Mason's book. I have always had a soft spot for him and was so thrilled that he was finally getting his book because I wanted to see him happy. Renita definitely made this story well worth it. Mason and Felicity's journey was one filled with summer fun, romance and misunderstandings, but also about taking chances and following your dreams and your heart.

Felicity is stuck in her little fishing town and dealing with the hangover of a relationship that went bad. Thinking she was doing what was best for the one she loved, mistakes happened and lives were forever changed. Dealing with that guilt she only allows herself the pleasure of her summer boys, those who come to town but will be going. No commitments or lives to ruin.

Mason needed to get away from the front row seats he had to Brinley and Ryder's love story. We met Mason in the f

Now in all honesty after the first two books I wasn't so sure that I liked Mason. This book definitely changed my opinion though. I can say without pause or hesitation that Mason is my favorite part of this book from start to finish. His character brought the humor, sincerity, romantic gestures that I didn't even see coming, and maybe cause I wasn't comparing him to Ryder for the first time- he brought the sexy.

And it was as amazing as I hoped it would be.

I loved the slow development of Mason and Felicity's relationship. Even though Felicity was kind of annoying at times, she was just so stubborn about doing everything all on her own. I think that all of the problems that they faced were pretty realistic, no crazy exes, no murder plots or schemes. And even though I was annoyed

Review by Nicole Lorenzo

Felicity Daniels feels trapped in her small little beach town. She is surrounded by memories of better days and the life she could have had with her ex-boyfriend. She waits tables, lives in her boat house and has no idea where her life is headed. Afraid of getting hurt again, Felicity has rules set in place to keep the little control she has over her life firmly intact. She refuses to fall in love again, instead spending her time with “Summer Boys”. Summer Boys make for

Still getting over the best friend he crushed on for so long, Mason needs distance, and he finds it by leaving town for the summer to work on a fishing boat with his uncle. But shortly upon arrival, he sees Felicity, a local waitress and perhaps the one to make him forget all about his broken heart. But Felicity knows better than to get too involved with one of the “Summer Boys,” those guys who come around to work or vacation for the summer and then return to their lives elsewhere. It doesn’t me

4.5 stars -- Mason's story!!! It's been awhile since I read the first two books in this series, but I remember being sincerely hoping that Mason got his own story. This book was filled with so much hilarity, I had trouble not highlighting all the bantering and teasing between Felicity and Mason. And I just looked back at my review for Just a Little Flirt and had the same comment, so Ms. Pizzitola knows how to NAIL that sexy/funny chemistry. I really apprec

I really liked the book, the romance, how it plays, the chemistry between the characters, the few messed up things that happen and the cute little things too. It's a really good story, entertaining and fun, a light read but a realistic one, something you can relate to, it's about two normal people trying to live normal life, with all that encompasses, with no unnecessary drama.

Felicity Daniels feels as though she has no future. Living in what she feels is a "dead-end beach town" her friends all know what they want in life but she never has. She didn't do well in school so she has no clue what she wants to do in the future but she knows that college isn't in the cards. The only thing that she is certain of is that she will not be hooking up with or dating anyone that lives in town ever again. These is what leads her to only hooking up with summer boys quest but

I really enjoyed this quick and flirty read. Mason has been a character in the other books, and he's memorable but not as likeable as he is in this book. Being able to see from his perspective helps the reader to understand where he's coming from.

I think Ms. Pizzitola did a great job with alternating between the character POVs. Mason felt very real and honest. He's also very sweet and could easily be a new book boyfrie

Just A Little Kiss was such an adorably, romantic story. I completely read it in one sitting. I couldn't put it down !
It's about finding unexpected love and pursuing your dreams.
Mason and Felicity's chemistry was pretty amazing. There's definitely struggles and confusion along the way between them but when you know it's real, it's freaking real.
This book set my emotions pretty high. I felt the fuzziness, the frustration, and definitely had me crying with some parts of the book.

Oh Mason that boy exaggerated a tad, "that dress was killing me. Death by blue balls. That’s how I’d leave this world." Sometimes Felicity is so into the moment she doesn't realize things:
"What is that?” I asked, patting her skirt.
“My phone.”
“It’s digging into my junk."
Mason is funny and he's laid back I found myself falling hard for him, "he grinned. “hearing you talk like that has me pretty turned on, but the way you’re murdering that lettuce has me kind of intimidated as well."living with

Just a Little Kiss was a sweet, fun and easy read.

Felicity was guarded, stuck and looking for more. Felicity was stuck in her town with no idea of what she was going to do with her future. She had a waitressing job, great friends but yet still felt as if something was missing.

Mason was running from his life and needed a change. He was new in town and there to help out family. Felicity saw Mason as fun but it became so much more.

It's not a secret that I love Pizzitola's work. I love her Crush series. I love the way she strings together complex characters, compelling story lines and witty banter. I loved how endearing Felicity was, how you really hoped that she could get passed her issues. I adored Mason; he was charming and hilarious, but also determined to help Felicity fight her issues. In the other other books, I wasn't a huge fan of him, but now, I'm one of his biggest. Pizzitola has this way of writing these charac ...more

“She grew quiet and stared at our hands.

Too quiet.

I glanced at her. “Did I say something wrong?”


I traced the worry line between her brows. “Then what has you so upset?”

She frowned and blurted, “I like you.”

I glanced back at the road. “Uh, I like you too, but I’m definitely not sure how that’s a bad thing.”

“No, Mason, I really like you.”

Wait…My head spun toward hers as a slow smile pulled at my mouth. She liked me, liked me?

“Watch the damn road.” She crossed her arms and leaned back in her seat.

I chuckled. “No fucking way. You’re pouting about this?”

“I’m not pouting. Ugh, it’s just so complicated. I don’t do complicated.”

“This isn’t complicated, Felicity. The complete opposite, actually. We like each other. Simple as that.”
“But meeting your aunt changed everything. It made me realize I could be so much more. I don’t know how it will happen or if it will. But at least there’s hope.” She pulled her feet onto the seat, tucking her knees to her chest. “Elise said she used to work the graveyard shift at this diner so she could have daytime hours free for photography. She said she’d work a wedding then go waitress right after. She went from champagne and cake to coffee and bacon. Evening gowns to truckers.” She smiled. “The weddings paid well, but the night shift inspired her. Isn’t that amazing? A five thousand dollar dress on a bride couldn’t compete with five thousand miles on a trucker’s face. She said his wrinkles told a better story than silk ever could.” 0 likes
