Sunny Shelly’s Review: It Started With a Kiss by S.L. Scott

Release Date: June 10

It started with a kiss.


Admittedly, it was a moment of weakness on my part. But even the strong-willed have been known to fall for a hard body underneath a tailored suit and a five o’clock shadow coating a sharp jawline.


It didn’t matter that Jackson St. James was nothing but trouble. Trouble was just my type.


Been there.


Done him.


Not making that mistake again.


We were friends, a low-key affair we designed ourselves—over before we began. After all, together we made no sense.


Jackson is into sports. I prefer the arts.


He gulps beer. I sip champagne.


While I might not be described as humble, his arrogance is through the roof.


But when he asks if we can talk, my traitorous Louboutins come to a full stop. Although I’ve seen enough movies to know how these conversations go, maybe, just maybe, he’ll surprise me.


He has before . . .


We may have started with a kiss, but how will we end?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
Set in SL Scott’s New York Stories series, It Started With a Kiss is Jackson and Marlow’s story, a super sweet friends-to-lovers romance with all the feels.

I have enjoyed getting to know both of these characters on their own in SC’s other books, so I was excited to get to know them even more in this book. And I loved what I read. A bit of a Park Avenue Princess, Marlow had given up on fairy tales after her father’s finances took a hit and life threw her a few curveballs. She had Jackson have had a friends-with-benefits relationship going on for a few months, so when she is evicted from her apartment, he offers his place. He’s been wanting more out of their arrangement for a while now, but will he be able to convince Marlow that he is the prince she’s been waiting for?

These two were absolutely adorable together, and I loved the progression of their story. It was heartwarming and just a simple love story. Of course there are some bumps along the way, but Jackson is super supportive of all that Marlow is going through and is just there for her. It’s as simple as that.

Jackson and Marlow’s path to HEA started with a kiss on New Year’s Eve that turned in to so much more.

I received a complimentary copy and voluntarily left a review.

Meet S.L. Scott
New York Times and USA Bestselling Author, S. L. Scott, was always interested in the arts. She grew up painting, writing poetry and short stories, and wiling her days away lost in a good book and the movies.
With a degree in Journalism, she continued her love of the written word by reading American authors like Salinger and Fitzgerald. 
She was intrigued by their flawed characters living in picture perfect worlds, but could still debate that the worlds those characters lived in were actually the flawed ones. 
This dynamic of leaving the reader invested in the words, inspired Scott to start writing with emotion while interjecting an underlying passion into her own stories.
Living in the capital of Texas with her family, Scott loves traveling and avocados, beaches, and cooking with her kids. She’s obsessed with epic romances and loves a good plot twist. She dreams of seeing one of her own books made into a movie one day as well as returning to Europe. Her favorite color is blue, but she likens it more toward the sky than the emotion. Her home is filled with the welcoming symbol of the pineapple and finds surfing a challenge though she likes to think she’s a pro.
