ARC BOOK REVIEW: Only One Kiss by Natasha Madison


Rating: ★★★★

First impression? Squee, smooshy, gooey, lurrrrrrve.
That was me trying to put my emotions into words, but mostly I just adored Only One Kiss.

What I loved-
The hero’s name is Ralph. I know, I know, that seems like a silly thing for me to love. I mean, nowadays, who names a big, hunky, hockey player hero Ralph? Natasha Madison does, that’s who, and I flipping LOVE it. Plus, Ralph is just so darn adorable I can hardly stand it. I might have a bit of a soft spot for guys with “little old man” names.

The meet-cute is perfection. Ralph and Candance meeting for the first time and pretty much every time after, made me literally aw and giggle out loud.

What I didn’t love-
I’m probably gonna get some lip for this, but the big epic climax? The moment everything blows up before it gets put back together? Well, I thought that she overreacted. I might have maybe rolled my eyes.
I get being upset, but she gets like life-altering upset. If you are going to have this big moment that the heroine upends her life to get away from this guy, he better do something worth the upending. But what blows my mind is when the two come back together to have their “having it out” scene, he’s like, okay, you’re right, and walks out! Then two pages later run back in to say, oh no, wait, I will give you everything you want. I was like huh? He’s there to tell her he wants to be with her; why in the world would he leave for two seconds and then run back in to say he was wrong. He already knows he’s wrong, thats why he was there in the first place!

I was all over giving this book 5 stars until the weirdness of the ending, but it’s a solid 4. Solid enough I want to read the next book in the series. Crossing my fingers for a better climax.

Release Date: September 1

From USA Bestseller Natasha Madison comes a brand new Hockey series The Only One.

Being traded to Dallas was a dream come true. I had everything I wanted, my game had never been better, and my wife was due to have our baby any day now.

What could go wrong?

I was now raising our baby on my own. After hockey practice and games, I didn't have time to sleep, let alone make sure my social media was up to par.

I never thought I'd get a second chance at love.

When my hotshot brother was drafted in the NHL, he didn't have time to do his social media, so I took over for him. Little did I know it would become my career.

My plate was full with over fifty NHL players, and I wasn't taking on any new clients.

Yet when he showed up on my doorstep with the cutest little girl in the whole world, I couldn't say no.

I was just helping, but it turned into more than that. He's the man I've been waiting for.

All it takes is one touch, one night, one chance, and only one kiss.

Meet Natasha Madison 

When her nose isn't buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she's in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. 

You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. 

It's a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her...
