I wasn't supposed to see Levi Pierce ever again. A few months ago, we had one incredible date. One. That's how I like it.

End of story.

Only it wasn't. Pretty soon everywhere I turn, I see him. Our best friends are dating. My mother mistakenly—and happily—thinks he's my plus-one to my cousin's wedding. And he's the guy I have to work with on the most important job opportunit

I liked the blurb and was hoping for something light with some great banter but this book is angstier than I thought. It's a standalone, but there are times it feels like it isn't because there are some things you won't get unless you read the first book. And if you're like me and you haven't read the first book in this standalone series, you're going to get confused at times, too. The affair thing they had was barely discussed. The beginning of the story felt like watching a show on

There aren’t many authors who I’ll literally drop everything for, but Robin Bielman is one of them. I always look forward to her releases hugely and Lips Close to Mine is her at her best, capturing all I love in a romance: strong chemistry, emotion, the perfect blend of humour, angst and sexy-time, unforgettable characters and a man who will steal your heart.

Levi and Harper have an interesting history...they were childhood friends who were inseparable until they went to different schools and lost contact. Recently, they ran into each other again and hooked up...a night neither of them can forget but naturally there are issues.

We've met Levi and Harper a little in the first book by Robin Bielman, Talk British to Me, and I was really happy to get their story. Harper really needed someone like Levi and I felt the reverse was true as well.

This is my first book by Miss Bielman. It took me by surprise that this book is OK read. The story about love, acceptance and finally finding new beginning. Harley had a traumatic loss when she was young. That tragedy affecting her so deeply that sje pushes everyone away. Enter Levi. They had an explosive one night stand and suddenly Levi can not forget about her.

The insta lust is not believable. I had a hard time liking Harley. I think she is a mean manipulator in the relationship. She can not

Robin Bielman gives us the second book in the Wherever You Go series; Lips Close to Mine, which is Levi and Harper’s story.

Both featured heavily in Talk British to Me in that they were close friends of the leads, so I knew from what we learned about them in the telling of that story that sparks were going to fly, especially as Levi was supposed to be a one night stand that Harper never saw again, having him cons

4.5 stars - Awesome story. Totally love Levi and her. But Harper was starting to tick me off. Plus Gimme a better ending... ack!!

Oh, I love it when a guy can just sweet talk, hang around, and totally immerse themselves into a girl's life. The past was supposed to stay in the past but who can deny a steamy man like Levi?

Part of a stand-alone series, Talk British to Me was book 1 and introduces us to the 4 guys that lived together. Sweet and sexy, that book was so fun to read

Lips Close to Mine by Robin Bielman is a frenemies to lovers story and I loved it!

The storyline is sweet, emotional and well written. It was easy to follow and the drama was just enough to keep me turning the pages late into the night.

I loved watching Levi and Harper's relationship unfold. They made me laugh, they made me swoon and they touched my heart with their stories. Both Levi and Harper are dealing with past hurts, one with a psycho ex and one with the loss of her first love.

Sigh. This book was just...gah! These two twenty-three-year-olds may not have seemed to have a lot in terms of quantity stacked against them, but the baggage could have very well been insurmountable had either one of them given up on themselves and each other. Neither Levi nor Harper is at the point where they're over what happened with his ex-girlfriend and wi

What a fun story! This was my second book by Bielman and I was excited to read it after reading Talk British To Me. This is its own stand alone so no worries if you haven't read that yet (but I highly recommend you get on that, it’s great!)

Once again, Bielman’s alternating first person writing style was so easy to immerse myself into the story. In this I fell for Levi right away, and had a little bit harder time relating to Harper. She was a well developed female lead, but her past experienc

After reading Talk British to Me (book 1 in the Wherever You Go series), I knew I needed more Robin Bielman in my life. However I was not expecting to fall in love with Levi and Harper quite as much as I did (if possible I think this book is better than book 1). The story, although a complete standalone, does carry on from Talk British to Me with Mateo’s flatmate being Levi and Teague’s flatmate being Harper. After hooking up with Levi in a bar and having a one night stand with him, Harper has n ...more

I like this book. I'll skip the blurb and get right down to it. Levi and Harper have been friends for a while. Friends covers the one night stand they had a couple years ago. Harper doesn't want to see Levi and now since her best friend is dating Levi's best friend and roommate it leaves Harper with few options.
Add to that the job she wants very badly, working for a water safety program is run by his brother in law and Harper is set to shoot some PSA's for the fledgling program. Stuck in a pinc

4.5 "Pants Charming" Stars!!!

Lips Close to Mine was a slice of cheesecake I couldn't get enough of. From the very first words I was hooked. A lighthearted story filled with just enough angst. It had me laughing and all-around giddy. The two main characters were so refreshing and I instantly gravitated towards them. It had me prolonging the end and only wanting and needing more. An overall a very enjoyable read.

Lips Close to Mine by Robin Bielman is the second book in the Wherever You Go Series.
Book one, Talk British to Me, is Teague and Mateo´s story.
Lips Close to Mine is Harper and Levi´s book. Every book can easily be ead as a standalone, there are only a few cross-over.
Harper McKinney is a swim trainer and Teague´s best friend. She´s good people. She had a ONS with Levi Pierce, and now he shows up everywhere. Levi is a cameraman and travels the world. Somehow she like/loves him, he´s irresistible.

Robin Bielman is one of my favorite authors and this story simply cements her spot at the top of my must-buy list! Lips Close to Mine is Levi and Harper’s story, for those of you keeping up with the Wherever You Go series, but it can easily be read as a standalone so don’t hesitate to dive into the series here.

Neither Harper nor Levi is looking for long-term. They’re two commitment-phobes, (they’ve both got their reasons), who hook up for a one-night stand that rocks their worlds, and then disc

Is it possible that I loved Harper & Levi even more than Teague and Mateo??
DNF at 35%.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, despite my initial reservations so I eagerly requested this book from NetGalley. Unfortunately, Levi and Harper are (for me) the two annoying BFFs of the previous book’s h/h.

Harper is an amazing swimmer, like Olympic good, but gave it all up after her childhood sweetheart drowned. Now she teaches kids swimming and is passionate about a charity which tries to prevent children drowning. In fact she is trying to be their ambassador but get

Robin Bielman puts the fun in dysfunctional. Lips Close to Mine has a special kind of crazy that only Ms. Bielman can create. Harper is a touch neurotic. Between matchmaking mothers, a controlling father and a pesky attraction that refuses to go away, who can blame her. What happens when the man of of your nightmares becomes the guy of your dreams? Chaos! Levi and Harper are proof of why any Bielman novel is a class act. She never strives for perfection, only truth. Flaws and all. Her ability to

I wanted to like this book, but I honestly hated both characters. Well, I hated Harley, but tolerated Levi and sometimes even really liked him. I listened to the audio book and I was just ready for it to be over.

Harley went through something traumatic as a teen; she lost her boyfriend to a drowning accident on her 16th birthday. Even though that happened a long time ago, she still lives her life as if it happened yesterday. She's caught up on the past, is afraid to love or let anyone in (thus t

Good grief, you guys. Are you reading Robin Bielman yet? Because if you are not, you need to remedy that immediately. No joke - these books are so good. I completely lost myself in Lips Close to Mine and frankly, I sort of want to just start all over at the beginning and do it again.

This, the second book in the Wherever You Go series is a little more intense than the first. I felt like I went a little deeper with Levi and Harper for some reason. The tone felt more serious overall, but I wouldn't

Sexy, sweet, and inspiring, Lips Close to Mine by Robin Bielman is nearly impossible to put down once you start! The Wherever You Go series is a must read.

Before reading Lips Close to Mine I didn’t think it would be possible for Robin Bielman to create a better couple than Mateo and Teague from Talk British To Me. And yet, I just loved Levi and Harper so much.

I’ve been dying to figure out what happened between these two since it was revealed that they hooked up in

Lips Close to Mine is the second book in Robin Bielman’s New Adult Romance series, Wherever You Go. This standalone read is full of heart and will leave you swooning.

Harper McKinney and Levi Pierce run in the same circles and know some of the same people. Their moms met at Mommy and Me swim classes. In fact, from the ages of three to seven, they were inseparable. They lost contact when they ended up going to different schools. Now years later, fate has brought them back together.

The first book in the series (Talk British To Me) from author Robin Bielman was an outstanding read, so I was elated at the opportunity of reviewing Lips Close To Mine, the second instalment in the Wherever You Go series. While there were some likeable elements in the story, I felt it did not meet expectations. The characters actions and shenanigans felt contrived in scenes which did not sit well. Overall, this read did not leap at me.

Levi and Harper's story was everything I'd hoped it would be when we got glimpses of it in Talk British to Me and more! (No worries, though--it does work as a standalone, but if you've read the other book and needed to know what was going on with those two, your wait is finally over!)

I'll admit there were times I wanted to smack Harper upside the head for how she was letting fear run her life, but at the same time it was 100% believable that she did, and so I stuck with her--as did Levi, and

This is Levi's story and it's fabulous!! Levi and Harper are amazing together. Their relationship is complicated. Well, not really, but Harper has up so many walls it makes it complicated.

It's a great book, I loved the story and characters alike. I loved both Levi and Harper. Their story is sweet with just the right amount of romance, emotions, and angst. I just adore Robin Bielman's characters, they are always so interesting and relatable. I strongly recommend this book to all romance fans.

Harper doesn't do relationships. So when her one night stand, Lavi, turn out to be a friend of friend she is confused. She's definitely attracted to him and its hard for her to resist
