He closed the distance I'd opened up between us and kissed me lightly on the lips. "Maybe we can just be," Kevin whispered.

Charlie Collins doesn't know what to do about Kevin Lazarus, her crush and, awkwardly, her new stepbrother. Things were complicated enough when their parents were only dating and when Kevin was going out with Charlie's best friend, Tess. Now, post-wedding, Charlie and Kevin are crossing paths and crossing lines, and then they have to eat breakfast . . . together.

If only Charlie could get some time away from Kevin and her annoyingly happy and strange stepfamily, she might be able to deal. Yet first she has to make things right with George, her sort-of boyfriend, and Tess, whose trust she broke. But while Charlie struggles to be the perfect friend and daughter, at the end of the day Kevin is the one waiting for her at home. Would it really be so bad if they kissed again?

The follow-up to If We Kiss, Rachel Vail's addictive story of first kisses and heartbreak, Kiss Me Again at long last answers the question of what happens when a crush so off-limits it has to be a fantasy suddenly becomes something very real.

My Thoughts:

This book. Oh my. Okay, so I've been saying off and on about how YA has been kinda "meh" for me as of late. However, this one really had me involved in the story, sitting on the edge of my seat, and pining away for the love to happen.

I read If We Kiss awhile ago and it was one of those absolutely adorable stories. I imagined myself as Charlie and felt all those feelings about what would happen if I kissed Kevin. And then we're taken down that path again in Kiss Me Again, a story I never expected to see written. If We Kiss had been written in a way that seemed like the story had been told. Little did I know, the story wasn't over. Having it continue was a brilliant idea, and I loved to see Charlie and Kevin again, and watch their chemistry unfold over and over again... Oh SWOON.

Kiss Me Again is a worthwhile sequel to a just as great first book. I will admit that yes, I picked this one up a few times JUST to reread the kissing scenes. I mean, the title is Kiss Me Again, why wouldn't they be good? Am I right? Just go out there and get your hands on both If We Kiss and then Kiss Me Again. Rachel Vail knows how to write young adult right and I will keep reading her books.

My Rating:
