*ARC received from author in exchange for my honest review. *

Judge Cameron Sinclair has wrecked me in every way possible for every book boyfriend moving forward. I didn't think Louise Lennox could top Rhue, but damn she did!!

Being in the middle of a divorce is enough to drive anyone to the edge but add in a mother who is more of a child than she is and a storm brewing on the island and Tara Kent has had enough of the blow’s life keeps wanting to throw at her. Having to fight her ex-husband f

Kiss of life by Louise Lennox.
A kiawah island romance.
I really enjoyed this book. Great story. I loved most of the characters apart from Jason. He was nasty. I loved Keisha Symone Rhue and Nicole. They were like family. I loved Cameron and Tara and how they were together. Even Tara’s children Tiffany and Joshua. Can't wait for next book. 5*.

I loved this story, probably has everything to do with Tara and her personality and what she’s been through. No one knows they need a knight in shining amour until Cameron walks in. I love how this story unfolded and we still got a glimpse into what is going on with Symone.

I haven’t read many by this author but my goodness they are all hot! Making me all hot and bothered! I told myself to not read it so fast but I couldn’t help it! Great things plus more great things plus drama and an ex… too exciting to wait!!

Tara is so much stronger than she gives herself credit for and more than she will ever believe. I was so torn with the pain and anger I felt on her behalf. But I didn’t feel that way too long because then entered this sexy gorgeous man who could potentially

The steam and the worry and some angst and the love are all strong here. Cameron isn’t looking for a woman, but Tara crossed his path more than once, so he’s taking his chance with her. Tara definitely isn’t looking for a man when she’s still beaten down by the one she used to have, but that isn’t stopping Cameron from pulling out all the stops to win her. And it’s an uphill battle for a while. Tara needs to learn to trust herself and others, so Cameron is deeming himself the man for the job. It ...more

A Kiawah Island Romance #2

Four women –

This is Tara’s book.

Meet cutes are all different but the way Tara and Cameron is a bit messy ;) though definitely memorable. The prologue set the stage, the first chapter set up the fireworks and then what followed created a HEA for two people that would do much better together than apart. Were they alike? Not in personality but they were definitely two puzzle

4 star review of Kiss of Life(Kiawah Kisses Series, #2) by Louise Lennox

Louise Lennox is a relatively new author to me. Kiss of Life was well written with characters whose story you cannot held but become invested in. Tara Kent has been put through the ringer by her jerk of an ex husband Jason; Judge Cameron Sinclair is the man who swoops in to save her and I fell hard and fast for him.
Their first meeting is not one either of them would say was great, but fate has a way of changing things. When

Tara’s string of bad luck has her convinced nothing good will ever happen to her again. When a hurricane hits the island, she gets stranded with the town’s sexy, new judge. Maybe her luck isn’t so bad after all...

Kiss of Life is a slower burn than my previous works, but boy does it smolder! When the fire is forced to ignite it is an explosion of passion and redemption. Tara and Cameron's story will melt your heart and have you fighting for Tara from the very first words. She's the kind of heroin

I thoroughly enjoyed another Kiawah Kisses romance! Tara is like most women seeking the perfect life. A good husband, happy children, and a loving home. After supporting her husband’s dreams, she finds herself single and raising her children as her husband tramps around town like a head honcho. It’s not enough that he cheated his way out the door, he wants to drag her and her self esteem underneath his shoe. Well up and coming Judge Sinclair is not about that business. Although he is too high ha ...more

I really enjoyed this book by Ms. Lennox. This is the second installment of the Kiawah Kisses series and after reading this I really want to go back and read the first book. The storyline captured my interest and pulled me in right from start. Tara and Cameron were such wonderful, endearing characters. Tara had some really challenging issues to overcome and it was lovely how Cameron really stepped up to help her. Their attraction was undeniable and they had really great chemistry. Ms. Lennox did ...more

The battles Tara fights makes her a strong and remarkable woman.
Her inner strength and will to do whatever she must for her children. She has been verbally abused
and used by her now ex husband, he cheated on her and refuses to pay full child support.
Cameron meets Tara not on the best of days, but he feels the attraction and knows right off the bat
he wants the help her. He knows she is special and ment to be in his life.
This was such a great amazing book... this book was filled with so many diff

I loved Tara and Judge Cameron story. They both had demons that they had too overcome. Tara's ex was a piece of work that needed to be put in his place. I loved how Tara and Cameron meet in the Starbucks and she was holding up by not knowing what to order and slowed him down. She spilled coffee on him on her way out. Low and behold when she got to court to fight her ex over child support who was the judge, Cameron. This was a beautiful love story with it's ups and down. Each person had to learn ...more

First of all, I love how Ms. Lennox set Tara up as a main character that we can get behind. She hasn't had an easy life and has some real problems that she's dealing with, starting with that Ex of hers. But she's not a victim by any means, and I found myself cheering for her more and more as the book went on. And Cameron?! Ugh I love him! I love his partnership with Tara and how they come together and make each other better. I absolutely DEVOURED this book in one sitting. Five stars! ...more

This steamy small town romance story was so worth the read! The wonderfully written storyline and well created characters had me hooked from the very beginning! The interaction and chemistry between Cameron and Tara kept me totally captivated as I turned each page until the very end! I was so enthralled in this story and characters that I read this book in one sitting!

Tara and Cameron

Beautiful story. I loved the judges possessiveness. Tara's determination to stand her ground against bully relationships. I can't wait for the next book. I glad Mr. George got things straight with his life and Tara's mom, all he has to do is get things straight with Cameron.

This is my first read from this author. I felt the she had a great storyline but it wasn’t executed well. This book really didn’t set the best standard for her work. It was very fast paced, so that I took away from me connecting with the characters. Many details in this story aren’t properly fleshed out nor did they get a proper resolution, leaving this book with a very choppy voice. Also, the hero Cameron is just too possessive for me. I know he’s supposed to come off as protective, but I didn’ ...more

Let's visit Carolina Lowcountry in Louise Lennox's latest novel, Kiss of Life. book 2 in her A Kiawah Kisses series. 

Judge Cameron Sinclair knows exactly what he wants, and when he sets his eye on something his focus is unyielding. When he meets Tara Kent, although the first encounter was not necessarily a good one, something draws him to her. Tara has been through a lot - a shitty ex-husband, to say the VERY least, the deferment of some of her dreams, and the realization that the writing may ha

Kiss of Life is book two in Louise Lennox's Kiawah Island Romance Series. I did not read book one, but I didn't find that I was missing anything by having not read the first book. I really loved Kiss of Life, I thought it was a very well written book, I loved how the couple, Tara and Cameron met and fell in love despite both of them having been burned by love before.

First read by this author, and I am quickly a fan! Poor Tara! She has done everything her entire life to take care of everyone else, instead of enjoying her life. He mother and her childish behavior, made her grow up well before her time. She marries, trying to find some normalcy and stability in her life, to find out her husband just wants to control her! Jason was just a straight bih!🤡 I have no other words to describe him and that ish he put Tara through!

Fall without fear

Tara was simply trying to regroup from a divorce and a ten year marriage from hell. All she wanted was for her Dead beat ex husband to pay his back child support, so she and her children could get on with their lives. He was a practicing obstetrician and really had no reason to be behind in his payments other than him being hateful. Two years after the divorce she finds herself having to go back to court because he wants to reduce his child support payments.

Louise Lennox is a fairly new author to me but I was intrigued by the blurb of Kiss for Life, it’s a well written story with characters you can’t help loving well apart from Jason who I’m not sure anyone would like. A divorce is hard enough to deal with but add in fighting for child support and a storm about to hit the island and you get a recipe for disaster and that’s Tara Kent’s life. Imagine the shock when you realise the Judge dealing with your case is the man you argued with and split coff ...more

Stephannie's 4 Star Review:

I really enjoyed this book and connected with the characters.

Tara Kent is divorce but her ex-husband Jason is still causing problems. Judge Cameron Sinclair is the judge who is Tara's savior in court. He is also the jerk of a guy she spilled coffee on earlier that morning. These two have sparks and there is an instant connection.
But when Cameron again comes to her aid, things start to sizzle between the two. Will Cameron convince Tara that he is worth taking a chance

My second book by this author and another great story for me to enjoy.

The opening scene in this story made me see red. Her douche of a husband deserved a lot more that Tara's friends did to him. I loved Cameron and all his effort to make her see how much worth she carries in the world. Reading about their relationship you can see how she slowly began to blossom and see that she deserved so much more that life gave her.

I'm definitely coming back to this series because these girls are a lot of fu

Received this Advanced copy from the author for my honest review. I loved this story by Louise Lennox.

It maybe fiction but could so be a real life story it is a true story of never giving up Hope where love is concerned.

Tara feels all she has is bad luck and if it wasn’t for bad luck she wouldn’t have any. Until a tropical storm hits the island and she is trapped with sexy hot motorcycle riding judge, she met earlier today in court, then again maybe her luck is turning around. Cameron is hot an
