As they work together, their mutual attraction grows. When they realize they just might be perfect for one another, they must decide whether to bow to the dictates of society or follow their hearts.

My Rating: 3 Roses

Light and sweet, Just a Kiss was an enjoyable historical romance novella. I liked this quick read. It was a sweet novella.

Sebastian and Charlotte were both great. Charlotte was determined not to let her sister-in-law take control of her life and was strong enough to follow through. Sebastian was sweet, though a bit oblivious to what was right in front of him. But, still adorable. I liked both characters.

The romance was good. It took a while to actually progress, though, so that slowed down the book for me and affected my enjoyment of it. But, I still thought they were great together and that the romance was sweet.

The plot was well paced and I was kept mostly interested the entire way through. I did skim in some parts. I enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely.

Just a Kiss was a sweet historical romance novella. It was a light, enjoyable read. Romance lovers, this is a novella you might want to check out.
