REVIEW : Kiss Me Not by Emma Hart

What do you do when you’re the reigning kissing booth champion but the only person you want to kiss is your best friend’s brother?

Let me make this clear right here, right now: I, Halley Dawson, do not care that Preston Wright is kissing other women. 
Not a lick. Not at all. Nuh-uh-freakin’-uh.
I do care that he’s doing it six feet away from me behind a gaudy velvet curtain—making him my competition in this year’s kissing contest.
Why do I care, you ask? Because I’ve had an unfortunate crush on the insufferable idiot since I was sixteen years old, but I also know it’s never going to happen.
He’s the Creek Falls bachelor to die for, and I’m the Creek Falls racoon lady who puts peanut butter sandwiches out for them every night.
I’m not going to let him break my four-year-long reign—no matter how many times he breaks the rules and slides the curtain across to do the one thing he’s not allowed to:

Kiss me.

I was a freaking book girl. I believed in romance and magic and everything coming together as destiny decreed it. That’s all there was to it.


Kiss Me Not is a laugh out loud, standalone, super sweet romance. I am a sucker for anything Emma Hart writes and this one instantly grabbed my attention from the super amazing illustrated cover to the blurb, but once I started reading the book I was HOOKED.

Halley is the town fair’s kissing booth champion, her competition this year is Preston, her best friends brother and someone she can’t stand. But the more time they spend together the more their attraction towards one another comes to the surface. There is no denying the chemistry between these two. Their banter was fantastic.

I loved that Preston wasn’t a player, sure he was attractive and all the woman in town were in his line for the kissing booth, but he didn’t go around trying to hook up with all of them. Despite kissing hundreds, he had his eyes on just one woman, Halley. He was super sweet and romantic, though at times kind of an idiot when it came to the racoons, but he learned quickly.

I love Halley and her group of friends and their betting. I was dying of laughter when these girls were together. Their bond is amazing. I am looking forward to their books in the future. This book was full of great secondary characters from Halley’s friends, to the racoons (trust me, you have to read this to understand the love for the racoons), Grandma and Aunt Bethel.

If you are looking for a laugh out loud, super sweet romance this is definitely one to read!
