Logan Heath was the sweetest and most beautiful boy I had ever seen. He was popular, smart, and the star quarterback of Fort Johnson High. Every girl in school followed him around in hopes of getting his attention. I was no different, except that I admired Logan from afar. With him being a superstar junior and me being an awkward freshman at a new school, our coupling was ...more

I have been curious about Miss Bailey's book since The Dancer. So when I saw Lip Smacker, I picked it up right away and I am not disappointed. This book is fun, fun and fun. Well with a bit of sad at the end. Everything about this book is worth it.

Lip (I love her name) and Logan had their second chance of romance under a very cute sweet fun circumstances. Their banter is super fun. I love Lip's sassy mouth and her independent. She is fearless. Logan is also a swoon worthy hero. He stays with Li

~ 5 Two Halves of a Whole Stars ~

Lip Smacker was a fun, entertaining and sexy read. But it was also a book with all the feels you want to read in a 5 star read.

This story had me laughing out loud, swooning, blushing and even crying. The majority of this book was a feel good romance but it also had that emotional side that pulled on your heartstrings. I was invested in this story and characters right from the start.

I loved the book cover -- I detested the name chosen for the main female character -- even shortened didn't help me in my distaste for it. I know - I know the author probably had her ideas relating to the name and it's her book after all. The storyline has the good, the bad and the ugly. There are some highs and lows. At certain times, I felt the feels. But overall, this book didn't really click for me and I ended up neither hating or loving it. It was a quick read -- entertaining enough to keep ...more

3.5 All about Logan Stars

If you are in the mood for a CUTE read this is a MUST read book. I really enjoyed it. I had a smile on my face AND tears were brought to my eyes within the pages of this book. Bravo Ms. Bailey. It isn't easy to bring tears out of this blackened reader's heart. But you done did it. Logan was everything I love in a book boyfriend and Lip was adorable. I flew through this and enjoyed the ride thoroughly and had a smile on my face at the end. So win win. xo

4.5 star Review Lip Smacker by Alison G Bailey
Alison G. Bailey is a new author to me and why that is the case, I have no idea. I found this book to be well written and entertaining, keeping me interested from the first to the last chapter.
Elipheleta (Lip) Smacker is the co owner of a bakery with her grandmother Wavy (love their names). Going through life with such an unusual name has certainly been a challenge for Lip, particularly when she was a teenager. Falling in love from a distance with,

DNF at 22%

There's being quirky and cute and there's forcing quirky and cute. This book is 100% the latter. There are so many places where this book defies logic and what people would do in a situation to go for the "cute" or "quirky" and it just didn't work for me.

I’m a big fan of Alison’s books and she did not disappoint with Lip Smacker. This story was sweet and a lot of fun. It had me laughing and swooning and enjoying every minute.

There was witty banter, chemistry and romance, and a little angst. I loved the characters. They were well developed and realistic. Lip was independent and strong and Logan was definitely book boyfriend material.

This story is told in Lips’ point of view and is a complete standalone. And I loved it!!

This heroine had the emotional maturity of a two year old and the poor hero should have escaped when he got the chance. She was awful and after a sweet night together tried to ghost him. Refused to communicate with him. Believes the worst about him. Twice! She then has the audacity to whine about her broken heart - when *she* ghosted *him*. And he just kept coming back for more emotional abuse. I think this was the awfullest heroine I've ever read. ...more

Memories of walking down the street reminiscing with Wavy (her grandmother) keep Lip tied to the neighborhood even if her building is run down and a major corporation wants to buy her out to build a new hotel in the area. She isn’t willing to leave the spot she chose so deliberately.

This is the first book I’ve read by Alison G. Bailey and it will most certainly not be my last. I absolutely loved everything about it. I love her writing style and found myself rereading paragraphs\dialogue because it was so entertaining. Lip and Logan are amazing, I fell in love with them both individually and as a couple. The chemistry between the two is off the charts and the use of family members (Wavy) also added to the storyline and enjoyment factor. This book is a five plus star read, ad ...more

My one click pile just got a little bit bigger. Alison G. Bailey was never on my radar before, but boy does she make an impression. Lip Smacker packs all the feels inside of an irresistible story. From awkward teen years to adult heartache, Bailey gives emotions something worth investing in. Lip and Logan were a joyful, breath of fresh air. Can't wait to see what else this author has up her sleeve. ...more

Let me start by saying that Alison G. Bailey never disappoints. I've read pretty much all her books and they all bring something original and sweet to the table.

A big investment company is looking to buy the bakery that Lip has put her heart and soul building from the ground up.

It's no surprise that I absolutely adored this book! Alison is one of my favorite authors. She has no trouble writing an funny, loving, sexy read like this one. I laughed, I cried, I swooned!

Lip Smacker was a fun and entertaining read that I loved reading. There was so much about this story that I loved making it difficulty to put the story down to go to sleep at night. The author was written a storyline that was really sweet and fun to read with characters that I loved reading about throughout the story.

Sweeter than sugar. Better than a cupcake. More adorable than a baby unicorn and all the rainbows. Hilarious. Guaranteed to hit you right in the feels. Lip Smacker is just all the things!

3.5* and here's why; while this book had a lot of potential it never delivered for me. Don't get me wrong it was an OK read but it was at times a bit too cheesy for me. The chemistry wasn't working for me and I had a bit of a struggle to connect with the characters.

Now what I did like was the love Lip and Wavy shared. That was the (only) feeling i felt straight from page one. I did like how Longan ended up helping Lip. To be honest if this was written in two POVs maybe it would make more of a i

If you are in a mood for a feel good and a fun sweet book with no added drama than this is the book . It was super cute , fun & entertaining read with no nuisances of bad characters or drama to drag the story. Logan and Lip’s characters were realistic and relatable. I loved their chemistry and banter. The story is heartwarmingly beautiful and I was left craving for more of Logan & Lip even after the story ended .

I picked this up bec foodie-romances (where one of the MCs is a chef, baker, cook) is one of my favorites. But this book totally didn’t work for me.

I couldn’t connect with either MC. In fact, Lip grew irritatingly annoying as the story wore on. And I thought that Logan’s interest in her wasnt the true-forever-love kind. At times, I actually found his behavior a little douche-like.

I am also not a fan when a plot is trying too hard to make a situation funny. Give me witty, snarky banter any day

I finished Lip Smacker last night and oh many did I love it! Logan (mr.heath, to me because I refuse to swoon to guys who share my child's name) was sooooo swoon worthy. Like seriously. And Lip, goodness she was such a great character! Strong and stubborn and I just really loved the way she was written.

This book was sooo sweet and super cute but also got me a little emotional, there were tears.

Definitely recommend you give this romance a try!

When her secret high school crush walks into her shop to offer to buy it for his employer, she is astonished at his arrogance. Not only was he cocky, and still sexy, but she was crushed that he didn't recognize her. Logan was more than a cold lawyer, he was kind, thoughtful and giving. He remembered the cute girl who watched him from afar and was intrigued and dr ...more

Want a cute and funny and lighthearted read? Lip Smacker is where it is at! I laughed my butt off, had heartfelt moments, and adored this book. Alison G. Bailey created a wonderful world with her characters and story line!

Lip (Short for Elipheleta) definitely had issues with her name when she was growing up. The girl definitely had a tough time, to say the least. Her bright and shiny spot was Logan Heath the guy she had a MAD crush on back in HS, but he did not give her the time of day. Imagine
