New Release + Release Blitz + 4.5 Star 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?

Kiss Me Not, an all-new hilarious brother’s best friend romance from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart is available now!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000035_00027]

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.

Tracey’s Review

While I’m not always in the mood for a romantic comedy (you know, I like to angst it up sometimes…), I am always in the mood for Emma Hart. Her books are guaranteed to perk me up, make me smile, and, often, send me into full-on belly laughs. And, with the way that Emma’s been talking up her Kiss Me series, well, I was very interested in getting my hot little hands on KISS ME NOT (Book 1) to start the journey and check these characters out.

It’s a given that Emma’s female characters are going to be imbued with traits reminiscent of herself, just a teeny bit, so sass, spice, and a sarcastic sense of humor are musts. Enter Halley Dawson, first daughter of Creek Falls, and reigning queen of the town fair kissing booth. Halley is primed and ready to win the title of Queen Kisser once again. But, wait…what’s that? Who has been hand-picked by none other than Halley’s own father to compete against her? Only the guy that she’s been crushing on for years, the one that’s off-limits. Yep, that guy, none other than Preston Wright, her best friend’s older brother. I have a feeling that things are about to get a littler, erm, heated…

I really got a kick out of KISS ME NOT. Halley’s sass and smarts, Preston’s sexy sweetness, the hilarious antics of their families and friends, and, yep, those raccoons, who absolutely stole the show. This book is a great beginning to the series, because now I can’t wait for both KISS ME TONIGHT and KISS ME AGAIN, as I have a feeling that seeing Reagan and Ava find their own HEAs is going to be very, very entertaining. KISS ME NOT is a must-read for rom-com lovers and Emma Hart fans, and is an easy 4.5 stars of pure enjoyment.
