Summary

Sleeping with the enemy has never been so complicated. Twenty-eight-year-old Brooklyn Campbell is having a bad day. A speeding ticket, a towed car, and a broken heel are all working against her laid-back vibe. To top it all off, her birth mother, whom she's never met, has requested contact. The only bright spot is an impromptu date with a beautiful and mysterious brunette. Jessica Lennox is what you would call a high-powered executive. She's the head of a multimillion-dollar advertising firm in New York City, and it didn't happen by accident. But when the blonde head turner from the wine bistro turns out to be her number one competitor, her life gets infinitely more complex.

Is New York big enough for both Brooklyn and Jessica? Maybe it's just time they experienced it together...

New York City Romance

Another great work from Melissa Brayden, fitting the romance genre to a 'T'. The performance by Felicity Munroe, is amazing, she brings all the characters to life and performs great ascents for all the different characters - great job!

The romance is centered around Jess (very focused head of her own advertising company) and Brooklyn (partner in a small competing ad company).

What works is the story, it is a great traditional romance, with a conflict in Brooklyn which prevents her from admitting her love to Jessica a. There are a couple of side plots, around a teenager and her mother with a drink problem. As well as Brooklyn finding out she her birth mother wants to see her.

The romance is great, the performance is great, the story and location is very well done. It does start a bit slow, but once it gets going and the characters are established it is very enriching. The narrative is not as snappy as "How Sweet It Is" but the location and descriptions are close to me heart as it is set in NYC . The I<3u moment is very well done.

So why is this not 5 stars. Well just a couple of things. First there are a lot of repeats, again, which become noticeable, 'Starbucks' gets way to much mention in this, I get that it is there for a humors scene which uses this, but it almost feels like product placement. A number of phrases/actions are repeated a few too many times ( hair pushed off her forehead), and, I'm not even sure this is possible, but perhaps too much kissing, oaky in real world its not possible, but in a novel, maybe. This are minor things. It is an engaging listen, and I can relate a lot to the Brooklyn character (it would be nice to believe what is offered to Brooklyn can happen, I have no evidence of it, and perhaps that makes these types of stories bitter/sweet)

Very much recommend it as a very strong lesfic romance.

Great listen

This is the first audio book I've listened to where I haven't read the book. It was strange to say the least and took some getting used to. What a great first listen it was though in the end, I really liked the characters and the storyline was real with just the right amount of farytail we all know and love from lesfic. I will absolutely listen to, and maybe now read, more from this author.

An easy listen.

Although I would say the story is much of the same. Predictable and nothing special. I liked it all the same and will move on to the second and third in the series at some point soon. The characters are likeable and funny in places. Enjoy.

a must listen to

Where does Kiss the Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

this is such a good book to settle down and listen to with a glass of wine and it make you smile at the end

Who was your favorite character and why?

the four main characters gel do well together that you cant pick just one

What does Felicity Munroe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

she is so good and very easy to listen to

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

all for one and one for all

Best rom-com ever

I love this book and these characters. they're spunky and cute and super dramatic. on top of that the narrator was absolutely perfect. It feels like these characters were written with this narrator in mind. her voices and tone just took a great book to a whole new and wonderful level. I especially love her teenager voice. I laughed and cried and bit my lip in anticipation. my only off moment was when the name of the bar changed half way through from showroom to showplace. but that was more interesting than anything.

Lesbian version of Mad Men!!

I don't expect too much from these types of romances (let's face it we buy these novels as a way to escape and a to enjoy a quick guilty pleasure), so that's why I was so pleasantly surprised when I listened to this audiobook.

Melissa Brayden has written a charming book with two wonderful, very down to earth characters, Brooklyn & Jessica, they both come across as normal people with virtues and flaws.
There's quite a cast of secondary characters, mostly Brooklyn's friends. They've been friends since college and they are partners on a small advertising firm. Jessica is the head of a larger firm, and this brings an interesting dynamic in which our two heroines are competing for the same clients. You can say that this is a lesbian version of Mad Men!

Contrary to what happens to many books on this genre, this story seemed pretty plausible to me. The dialogue sounded sensible and normal, and the reactions and emotions of the characters are not at odds with their personalities. And the author was able to achieve this without making the story sound boring or too predictable.

As with any romance novel, the main characters have lots of emotional baggage and issues that need to be resolved before they can start their happily ever after, but the story keeps you involved and overall it's is actually a pretty entertaining, well written book.

There are also quite a few very funny scenes, there's a particular one that happens while two of the characters are at Starbucks that was hilarious!!

Since the story involves the lives of 4 close friends, I am looking forward to what's next for the rest of the gang!!

Felicity Munroe did a wonderful job with the narration, I don't believe that I heard previous audiobooks narrated by her but I'll make sure to see if I can find more here in Audible...

Great story

Well written, the characters were really easy to connect with. You will laugh ,cry and even feel a bit of anxiety. it deals with true fears and loss, and best if all love in its simplest form.
All books in the series are worth reading. I love them!
oh, and the narration is great.

Love it!!! Loved it loved it!!!

I truly loved this book could not wait until my listening time each time I got to listen.
The story was really well written and the characters are so good. The vulnerability and twists and turns were really well done and it just kept me on my toes the entire 12+ hours. Definitely worth the price and time!

I did feel like the accents of the characters were well done and the narration was pretty good too which is very important.
DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!

A Nice, Refreshing Read

When it comes to books, I'm very picky - lesbian romances, especially so. This is a nice read with real characters and real dialogue. The fact that the author didn't employ stereotypical lesbians as characters was refreshing and a welcome change from the many other lesbian romances I pick up. The story was sweet, emotional, relatable, and held dabs of humor. There were many moments where I'd feel a smile slowly creep on my face.

Felicity Munroe does a fair job; there are occasions where she sounds like a robot, but the rest of the time she tells the story well, eliciting emotions and changing her voice (and accent) for each character.

I will be looking forward to Melissa's work in the future, and I'll be keeping this book on my bookshelf.

Wow! I love this book!

I was sorry to finish this book, I really, really enjoyed it! At last, for those of us who identifiy with feminine girls who are into feminine girls this was a wonderful trip! Much praise to the great performance of Felicity Munroe, who managed to find distinctly different voices for the characters which sounded natural and made listening a joy! I also loved the often very amusing dialogue. Some events in the story were rather contrived and unlikely, but I can forgive that given the overall high standard, I'm still giring it a 5 out of 5!

Loved it!

My heart ached for them when they were down and cheered them on when they were up. Very relatable characters (minus the view of the Hudson of course).
