Once upon a time, I believed in fairy tales.
I thought he was my Prince Charming, even though Grayson was tall, brooding, and from the wrong side of the tracks...
At fifteen, he swept me off my feet.
At twenty, he shattered my heart.

When I finally dried my tears, I became a new person.
Hardened. Untouchable. Impenetrable.

Until one day, like magic, Grayson reappears. All

This is one of my favorite books by Vivian Wood. It was full of so many emotions and was written perfectly. Rachel and Grayson had so much working against them in the beginning and there second chance was much needed because after all the sadness the only balm they needed to soothe what was broken was each other!

I voluntarily reviewed a advanced readers copy of this book
Patricia Rohrs (words we love by blog)
Rachel and Graysons story is one that will have you full of emotion! The story starts off with an appalling shock and leads into an even more gut wrenching tale of lost love and how to find forgiveness! Their story isn’t easy but it’s beautiful! Through all the pain and all the heartbreak the hope that love leaves you with keeps you reading and wanting more! I found myself absolutely speechless during times of this story because there is no way to describe how you feel you have to just experienc ...more

The 4 (really more a 3.5) rating is my personal rating of this book compared to other books that I have read recently. Overall I liked Kiss Me Again. It was a quick read and ends in a HEA. No cliffhanger and gives a little bit into the next book which will be about Olivia and Aiden (Grayson's sister and best friend). This book was just okay to me. I liked the characters but didn't really feel drawn to Grayson or Rachel. A lot of attention was spent building up the story but kind of like a roller ...more

Kiss me Again by Vivian Wood
“Second chances, 4 stars”

I got into the heartbreaking story Kiss me Again. I wanted these two who once fell in love as you adults to get their HEA. And the best part is they didn’t see each other coming. My heart broke for Grayson and the heck he went through. I hated what Rachel had become to get over the loss of Grayson. But the best part is they got back together.
Rachel is a product of her environment, but she wasn’t always. There was a time where she didn’t care a

This book was so much more than a second chance romance. It's also about tough discussions, personal sacrifice, and dealing with the consequences of life after service. Grayson was such a complex character. Rachael is a woman who he left five years ago. Grayson was going through a rough time after returning from service as a Navy SEAL and because of what he is going through he feels ashamed and unworthy to remain by Rachel's side. Rachael has tried to pick up the pieces of her life and thinks sh ...more

💥 💥💥 Sensitive and sexy second chance romance. 💥 💥💥

Grayson and Rachel are one of my favourite couples. They’ve both struggled with their parents and turned out amazingly strong in spite of them, even if their family financial backgrounds are complete opposites of the financial spectrum.

Together, they were everything, until they weren’t, and it was heart-breaking to see how Rachel coped with her grief, betrayal and anger. She couldn’t possibly understand what Grayson had suffered, and I admire Ms

Rachel and Grayson were a couple back in high school. She was the rich girl and he was the poor boy from the wrong side of town. They meet and fall in love. Even though she is raised in a wealthy family she is very kind and doesn't care that Gray is poor. She loves him for who he is. Years later these two meet up again and not exactly on the best of terms.

My heart broke for Grayson. To have to live with that type of guilt is unimaginable to me. There were so many times in this in story I just wa

This was a heartbreaking story that was absolutely beautiful. It was filled with so much emotion throughout the story that I could not get enough of this story. From the very first page I could not put this story down with two characters I could not get enough off. I really loved this second chance love story between these two characters that find love and forgiveness with each other.

Another amazing book by this author. I was sucked in from the start and I couldn’t put it down. This book has everything you want, a brooding alpha, love lost, a past full of pain and regrets. I loved Rachel and Grayson. They were together once and when he shipped out they stayed in touch for a while and then he just disappeared and left her, left her to move on without her knowing what really happened to him and why he did what he did. Rachel’s life isn’t her own, she’s ruled by her fathers thu ...more

Rachel was naive, privileged, spoiled rotten, and a pawn to be manipulated by her family. I couldn't decide who was more evil- mom, dad, or Clay! So many secrets and ulterior motives afoot! Taking makeup camping gave me fits of laughter! WTH!
For part of the story, Rachel seemed to be just like the vipers that spawned her- self serving, arrogant, bullies! When Rachel gets to know some of Gray's past, she finally realizes that there are reasons for his past/present actions. Can Rachel get a backb

This is a great heartwarming second chance romance. Grayson and Rachel were instantly connected with each other when they were together at first. They were pretty much attached at the hip. When he left for his assignment overseas he is injured and decided to stay away from her. She was so heartbroken when he went missing. Five years late, they are reunited again by a chance of fate. These two still love each other, but they contain their feelings. Rachel is so hurt by knowing that Grayson is ali ...more

"Kissing Grayson feels primal, electric. Raw."
~Rachel~

This book is about more than a second chance at love. It's about redemption. These two are so beyond meant for each other, that no fate could have kept them apart. No amount of time.

"And that is the moment that I know that she is it for me . The only one I want, the one I can’t live without."

They've been through some harsh life lessons, both different than the other. Rachel, the dissalusionment of her family, and the relationships a

“What an outstanding second chance romance. Vivian wrote a masterpiece. I finished it in a row, every hour felt like a minute. I was trapped all the way into the story.

Rachel personality was refreshing and unique, I expected the rotten kind of attitude but she was like fresh new air. She was caring and a very strong woman. Him. I didn’t mean to fall in love but Grayson made it so easy. A one of a kind man. A damaged soul yet so extraordinary and exceptional.

What a lot of emotion there was in this fabulous second chance love story! I did cry at the vivid portrayal of Grayson’s struggle with PTSD, it broke my heart. The story is well written and really gripping. The loss of their young relationship felt real to me and I was fully invested in Rachel and Grayson finding their way through their past to get back to each other.

Rachel, to me, is just existing in her life after Grayson just disappears. No warning, no word of him being dead or alive. Her fa
