ARC Review: Kissing Lessons by Susan Laine

Kissing Lessons (Before...and After, #2)From the blurb:

A kiss is just a kiss. It doesn’t have to mean anything. Does it? 
At seventeen, Merry’s never been kissed. Since he doesn’t want to disappoint his prom date, he asks his more experienced best friend, Boone, for some pointers. Surprisingly, Boone agrees to give him a hands-on lesson.
But they have no idea what they’re getting into. 
They explore hundreds of ways to make out, but somehow it isn’t enough. A week later, they’re back together for another session. This time things go further than either of them planned, and their relationship becomes awkward and uncomfortable. 
Have they learned enough to salvage their friendship and help it evolve? Their lessons have come to an end. They can either part ways forever… or share a true love’s kiss.

Heather's rating:

Very, very sweet and surprisingly hot, I was ready to give this book 4-stars until things got too mushy-gushy towards the end.

I haven't had much experience with Susan Laine, but I was surprised with how well she built up the heat between these two innocent little high schoolers (*insert evil grin*). I mean, these guys pretty much just kiss and rub on each other, and I swear I was riveting and sweating along with them. Phew! Who knew making out could be so sexy?

Okay, I knew this book would be short and fluffy, but the pet names and the "bae"-ing needed to be reined in. I'm not one to hate on pet names, but this was over-the-top and completely unbelievable with the story. I'm sorry, to go from one extreme, just "buddies," to the other at this rate gave me whiplash.

If you can get over the schmaltzy second half, you will love this book. I was almost there, but I still adored the heat from the beginning. Yum.
