Sunny Shelly’s Review: The Kiss, by M. Robinson

Release Date: February 16


From Wall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling Author M. Robinson comes a new stand-alone romance with all the feels. 


What happens when you make a pact with your boys to stay single and never fall in love? 


Well, you get the Playboy Pact.


We were friends, her and I.

Best friends. 

It was easy. 



That was our dynamic. 

We had a system. 

An understanding. 

An unspoken arrangement. 


We were there for each other through thick and thin. We had an unbreakable bond. Nobody understood our friendship. Because a guy and a girl couldn’t just be best friends without emotions getting involved, right? 


Without noticing, everything shifted, and I was experiencing all these new feelings… 




She’s mine. 




For the first time in my life, Mila wasn’t merely a girl I trusted and hung out with on a regular basis. 


She had become… 

…the woman I was in love with.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3 Stars

An anti-dating pact, two best friends, a kiss that changes everything… The Kiss has a good concept, but I just didn’t FEEL the connection between Mila and Leo on a romantic level. Mila has always been the girl that Leo and his friends hung around with, until one day he realizes that he loves her. Um, okay. I didn’t see the development of those feelings. There has to be SOMETHING there for me to buy it. And I felt it missed the mark.

This story was well written, but I just felt like I was being told, not shown, that I needed to be rooting for Leo and Mila. They both seemed immature at the onset, and I still felt that way at the end. There wasn’t much growth on either of their part, and Mila was a bit width-washy.

There is also a lot of crude humor in here. A lot. Leo and his friends are constantly joking about their dicks, practically to the point where I rolled my eyes every time another joke was made.

I’m intrigued by these twenty something guys sticking to a pact they made to never fall in love after one friend’s parents go through a messy divorce. Interesting concept. But I don’t know how well that can be executed amongst a group of horny young professionals. But we shall see, as The Kiss is the first book in a new series about these pals.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
