Book Review: Last First Kiss by Lia Riley

23507376Synopsis: Pinterest Perfect. Or so Annie Carson’s life appears on her popular blog. Reality is… messier. Especially when it lands her back in one-cow town, Brightwater, California, and back in the path of the gorgeous six-foot-four reason she left. Sawyer Kane may fill out those wranglers, but she won’t be distracted from her task. Annie just needs the summer to spruce up and sell her family’s farm so she and her young son can start a new life in the big city. Simple, easy, perfect.

Review: Who doesn’t love a story that makes you laugh out loud? “Last First Kiss” had me laughing straight away with the clever opening. It is a story of second-chances, finding love again, and an imperfect, quirky heroine.

Interestingly, the story focuses on the role social media plays in our lives – in this case the heroine’s blog. Her blog posts are incredibly funny and realistic, but also raises the question of how often we portray our authentic selves verses a perfect version of ourselves.

I would definitely recommend “Last First Kiss” to contemporary romance readers. I enjoyed it so much, that I had to purchase my own copy. However, I would love to find it at my local library, too!
