Cheri Reviews It’s in Her Kiss by Rachel Lacey

It’s in Her Kiss by Rachel Lacey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Really a 3.5 for me but rounded up because I really, really liked the first half or so.

I loved the premise and, while it did end up pretty much how I predicted from the start, it took some twists and turns I didn’t expect which is always nice.

For me the star of the book was Jules and her journey – and her family. She felt incredibly real to me and I spent the entire book cheering for her to be happy and to succeed. Sophie, on the other hand, made me cringe and groan and mostly want to have her go away so Jules could meet someone else. I found her just too whiny and her regular self-pity and self-doubt to be tiring and whenever we were in her POV I wanted to get back inside Jules’s head instead.

Clearly from the rating, though, I did enjoy the book and plan to read the first in the series soon. Which reminds me… The couple from the first book do show up fairly regularly in this one which wasn’t a problem for me. Until the epilogue. I don’t want to give anything away but if, like me, you started with the second book, you might find it a bit anti-climactic. So maybe start with the first.

Big thanks to the author for sending me an ARC. I wasn’t familiar with her work and have a new writer to choose from when I need a shot of angsty romance with some humor added for good measure.
