This college sports romance was everything that I hoped it would be and so much more! The author’s brilliant writing never fails to have me fully immersed in the story and invested in the characters. Kiss To Forget is an emotional, entertaining read that is sure to put you through a rollercoaster of emotions. At times, I was a blubbering mess, but there were also moments of levity. Then there were several scenes where I was swooning and fanning myself.
I couldn’t help but love Nixon and Yasmin - both individually and as a couple. They have their flaws, but they also have many strengths and a depth to them which made them so relatable. There is impeccable character development as the two of them showed great growth as the novel progresses. Nixon and Yasmin have a palpable connection and I really enjoyed how their relationship evolved.
This author excels at illustrating what it is like to be a college student - the social aspect of forging friendships along with adapting to adult responsibilities as well as navigating those complex emotions when it comes to love. There were many aspects of the book that I was able to identify with and the author’s way of capturing the characters’ emotions and thought processes was so realistic that at times I felt as though I was in the book.
Kiss to Forget is book 2 in this author’s Blairwood University series. It is a complete standalone, but I do recommend reading Kiss to Conquer because that book is phenomenal as well. If you are looking for a captivating read that has endearing characters, an engaging storyline, and puts you through all the feels, then I highly recommend this book!
