Review: Just a Little Kiss by Renita Pizzitola

In the sizzling new novel of Renita Pizzitola’s Crush series, Felicity knows that “Summer Boys” are only good for one thing. But what if hooking up with the right guy could lead to a fresh start?

Like most of the residents of her dead-end beach town, Felicity Daniels doesn’t know what she wants from her future. Instead of college, she’s waiting tables at the local grille where she’s more likely to run into the guy who was the love of her life—until one decision changed everything. Now as this year’s tourist season kicks in to high gear, Felicity realizes that whatever she wants isn't going to be found here.

Mason Hayes is the quintessential Summer Boy: hot, impulsive, and born without strings attached. While in town helping with the family fishing charter, he plans to have a little fun—and hopefully get over a certain girl. He’s never had a long-term relationship, but when he meets Felicity, he wonders if he’s found the girl who could change that.

With her heart still in repair, Felicity’s happy to have a distraction like Mason, but her best friend thinks he could also be her ticket out of this town. What’s the harm in using him to escape more than just her boredom? After all, he is just a Summer Boy, and they never stick around. But after one kiss, Felicity wonders if only one summer with Mason will ever really be enough.

Kristine's Thoughts:
** I received an advanced readers copy from Random House Loveswept via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**

Having read both of the books in the Crush series before this I was eager to get my hands on Just a Little Kiss which is the third book in the series. I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books and was anxious to see where Mason's story would go.

For people who have not read Just A Little Crush and Just a Little Flirt, the first books tells Brinley's story and the second one tells her roommate Fallon's story. In Just A Little Kiss we get to read Mason's story who is Brinley's best friend. The books do not have to be read in order. Each one can be read as a stand alone but in my opinion I would read them all because the characters are fabulous.

I was hooked right away with this story. I remembered really liking Mason and in fact mentioned that in my review for the first book. Yes I liked him but I absolutely LOVED him in this book. He was completely swoon worthy and I'm pretty sure he may even be short listed for the book boyfriend category that I keep in my head! His demeanour and sensitivity with Felicity was pretty incredible and the hopeless romantic in me was loving every minute of their attraction and restlessly anticipating the moment they would throw caution to the wind and give in to their desires.

As with any new adult book, it wouldn't be complete without the hot and sexy factor. Pizzitola delivers on that front but what I actually enjoyed most was the chemistry and interactions outside of the bedroom. There was something about the attraction and build up of Mason and Felicity's relationship that I was drawn to. Just like Felicity was anticipating the first kiss with Mason, so was I. I might have even gotten a little teary eyed a couple of times. Sigh...

This book was about letting people in, moving on, letting down your guard and learning from your mistakes. It was about two people trying to overcome fears and insecurities in an effort to come together. It is filled with complications and obstacles that challenge Mason and Felicity every step of the way.

Usually by the time I get to the third book in a series I find that my interest dwindles and the stories get monotonous. This is absolutely NOT the case with this series. I have enjoyed each one equally for different reasons. The characters that Pizzitola creates have something to do with it I think. They are all so different but interesting at the same time. This was another job well done! I loved every minute of it!

I sense a great story with Isla. Is it possible we will get to read her story next??
