Kiss Me Again
Kiss Me Again (If We Kiss #2) by Rachel Vail
He closed the distance I'd opened up between us and kissed me lightly on the lips. "Maybe we can just be," Kevin whispered.
Charlie Collins doesn't know what to do about Kevin Lazarus, her crush and, awkwardly, her new stepbrother. Things were complicated enough when their parents were only dating and when Kevin was going out with Charlie's best friend, Tess. Now, post-wedding, Charlie and Kevin are crossing paths and crossing lines, and then they have to eat breakfast . . . together.
If only Charlie could get some time away from Kevin and her annoyingly happy and strange stepfamily, she might be able to deal. Yet first she has to make things right with George, her sort-of boyfriend, and Tess, whose trust she broke. But while Charlie struggles to be the perfect friend and daughter, at the end of the day Kevin is the one waiting for her at home. Would it really be so bad if they kissed again?
The follow-up to If We Kiss, Rachel Vail's addictive story of first kisses and heartbreak, Kiss Me Again at long last answers the question of what happens when a crush so off-limits it has to be a fantasy suddenly becomes something very real.
These books. I am just so not sure how I feel about them. This one was better than the first one, but I still did not feel like it wrapped up the story any more. It was like they went in a circle for another several months and then ended up at the same point. That was frustrating. Overall, I did really enjoy the book. The chemistry between them comes off the page. I loved that, but on the other hand they are step-siblings now. That is weird. I don't know. The whole thing is just kind of different. Overall, it is a cute read if you don't think about it too much.
