This book ended up being more than I expected it to be. Blame it on the kiss is definitely an enjoyable, sweet and realistic story. If you're tired of reading the same old clichéd stories of jealous, possessive, controlling, alpha males - then this is the book for you. I highly recommend it.

3.5 - "We've come this far..." Stars!

The second book in the Kisses in the Sand series focuses on a couple whose connection causes more than a few feelings of guilt as they also try to navigate their grief for the loss of a loved one.

I think the subject matter in Blame it on the Kiss is one that any author is going to struggle to get the right balance with, in that Honor’s best friend was also Bryce’s ex-girlfriend, and she died. Honor cannot deny her feelings for Bryce after running into him mon

There's a reason Robin Bielman is one of my go-to authors:

Ten books read.
48 stars in total.

THIS is why. The lady never fails; from the romantic first kiss which induces a serious case of the butterflies, to the grand gesture that will leave your heart singing, she has a gift of bringing her reader a captivating story and couple to become emotionally invested in.


Blame it on the Kiss is no exception. With an undeniable chemistry, Bryce and Honor's journey brings everything from fun and flirting t

Hi everyone! My heart's feeling kind of full today and so I just rated one of my books for the first time. :) I love this book. I love all my books, of course, but this one is special because it's book #10. Ten. That is just crazy pants and means so much to me because I never imagined it happening. So, huge thanks to all of you for reading my books! I never imagined that either. Happy June! Happy reading! I can't wait for you to get to know Honor and Bryce.

Slick's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

I appreciate a book where both the hero and heroine have to overcome some past issues to move forward but they do it without a lot of whining or big blow ups or a whole lot of drama. While it took a little time, I was extremely happy that they both figured out what they wanted about the same time and both were willing to risk a lot to be together. For two people, a shared past with one woman, leaves them questioning everything especially the

Robin Bielman once again wrote a sweet, fun, flirty and emotional story that I couldn't put down.

Honor is a girl living with regrets, she believes that she is too spontaneous to finish a thing, she believes that she hurts others and she doesn't think that she is capable of loving.

Bryce on the other hand has been hurt by his past and though he is a man that wants a family and a steady relationship, he doesn't want one now.He doesn't want his heart to be broken again.

With each book by Robin Bielman that I read, I fall more in love with her characters and their sassy, sizzling, fun, emotional journeys. Blame it on the Kiss is one of my favorites. Honor and Bryce are such good, likable people who really deserve a happy ending. I laughed with them, cried with them and cheered them on throughout the ups and downs of their emotional journey.
I enjoy the sizzle (and these two do sizzle) but I love the heart of the story so much more. So many #FEELS. The supporting

Awesome read! This is a sweet, fun, and very emotional book. A beautifully crafted story that shows us the characters vulnerabilities, regrets, hopes and aspirations. Honor and Bryce are characters that you can't help but like and you want to see them get their happily ever after. Treat yourself to a wonderful afternoon and grab this one! I highly recommend it.

Sam’s top 3 reasons for LOVING Blame it on the Kiss:

1) It is a damn fine kiss, and you get to start blaming it right there in Chapter 1. Read it and weep!

2) A heroine committed to completing a very naughty bucket list, and a hero torn between preventing her…or participating. ;)

3) A Scrabble game that will make you stand up and cheer.

Before I started Blame it on the Kiss, I expected to adore it, because I adore everything from this author, yet I was secretly thinking, “Sorry, Robin Bielman. I can

First off, I have to say Blame it on the Kiss is my favorite Robin Bielman book to date. I even have to admit that Honor and Bryce are also my favorite couple. That’s saying a lot since I generally love all of her couples.

Bryce Bishop is truly a good guy. He oozes the “forever” vibe. A family and a white picket fence is him. He thought he was on track to have all that and more until Payton dumped him via voicemail. Now, he doesn’t trust his heart o

Robin Bielman is back with another Kisses in the Sands novel and I absolutely loved it. But that’s no surprise as this author is one of my favourites and I always know that when I pick up one of her books that I will be in for a fantastic read and this was no different. It’s gone straight to my keeper shelf.

This is a beautiful story of finding love and pushing yourself out of your comfort zone, even if someone else has to do the initial push. But when the results are Bryce and Honor together it’

Robin Bielman is an auto buy author for me, and this book just proves it even more. I could not put this book down, a sweet emotional, laugh out loud story of Honor and Bryce finding love.

Honor is trying to complete "the list" that her friend left her after she died. Bryce her friend's ex finds the list and wants to help Honor to fulfill the list. Neither are looking for a relationship, but the chemistry is flowing between them. Two things on the list are a one night fling and to fall in love

This sweet and sexy contemporary romance (A Red Hot Bliss title meaning we can expect some sexy times!) is the story of Honor and Bryce. They have a complicated history due to Honor’s best friend Payton who was secretly dating Bryce but dumped him (with no explanation) when she found out she was sick, subsequently dying and leaving a bucket list for Honor to accomplish. One of the items on the list is to have a one night stand, which Honor almost did with Bryce until realizing who he was at the ...more

Honor Mitchell doesn't have a great track record when it comes to following through.

Which makes her current to-do list all the more important. Ever since her best friend Payton died way too young and left Honor a wish list of things to accomplish and try, Honor has been doing her best to silence her naturally rebellious and flaky personality and get done what her best friend wanted. The list is supposed to stay a secret ... until someone finds out.

Honor Mitchell is a beautiful woman with a free-spirit. Not used to sticking to one thing or finishing anything, Honor is determined to complete her best friend's dying wish: a list of things that Payton wanted to do before she turned 25.

On that list:
1. Have a one night stand.
2. Get a tattoo.
3. Take a hot air balloon ride.
4. Open an antique store with my best friend.
5. Fall in love.

I freaking loved Keeping Mr. Right Now and when I finished it, I knew that I had to read Honor’s book no matter what. I loved her in the first book in the series and was really intrigued by her and what happened with Bryce. I needed an explanation and I needed more of them together. I got all of that and more in Blame it on the Kiss. This book was a page-turning, couldn’t put it down, heart racing perfect read. It was an emotional roller coaster that I didn’t want to get off.

The story of Honor and Bryce is a little more emotional as compared to the 1st book in this series. It talks about a hidden and suppressed attraction so as to not betray her best friend even though she is dead and the self-worth that Honor thought she is to have. The chemistry between Honor and Bryce was combustible right from the start and it was sad to see their feelings being suppressed and denied.

Honor also felt that she didn't deserve happiness and isn't one who made plans and it took fulfi

What a beautiful feel good Romance. Honor and Bryce have their own demons to exorcise from their past. Bryce is Honor's deceased best friends ex-boyfriend and they both feel guilty for wanting each other. Even though it feels so right, the guilt is eating Honor alive. They both have different mountains to climb to even come close to living again but she's not sure if the journey is worth betraying her deceased best friend.

Robin Bielman is an auto-read/auto-buy author for me. And this book is definitely worth a read. From the start, it has such a romantic heartfelt read. It is so easy to love both Honor and Bryce. Theirs is a "feel good" story. It does have the spice, the angst, the laughter, and the tears. But it is such a smooth loving read. Their connection was pure magic and despite both of them wanting to stay away, the line drawing them together was too strong.

An original, heartfelt premise makes this Red Hot Bliss special. Robin Bielman is one of my favorite romance writers and she delivers strong writing, great plot and multi-dimensional characters in the second novel of her Kisses in the Sand series. And yes, it's a Red Hot Bliss, so...hi to some sexy times!

The heroine, Honor, is lovable, and full of internal conflict trying to do right and 'honor' her friend's wishes. And Bryce...sigh. Hot, adorable...and a good guy. I LOVE a sexy good guy. A perf

Blame it on the Kiss is the second book in Robin Bielman's Kisses in the Sand series and I was thrilled to see we were getting Bryce and Honor's story! I really enjoyed their banter in Keeping Mr. Right Now, so I was hoping we would see more of them. This was a cute story, but I found myself getting a bit frustrated with their indecisiveness.

I understand the hesitation, I do. Honor feels like she is betraying her best friend Payton, by going after the guy she was in love with- even though Payto

So, I have very mixed feelings after finishing Blame it on the Kiss.

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

Robin Bielman is one of those authors that I just love and know that I will enjoy whatever she writes. Blame it on the Kiss was just as fun and flirty and sweet as I have come to expect from Robin, and I really enjoyed this story. Though this is the second Kisses in the Sand book, it can be read as a standalone story with interconnected characters.

After losing her best friend, Honor Mitchell sets out to fulfill her best friend's last wishes.
