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.

Excerpt: “I never answered your question.”“What question?” I darted my eyes to the side.“Just now. You asked me if I wanted to kiss you.”I did, didn’t I? Right. “Oh,” was all I said.Slowly, he moved his hand to my chin and gently lifted it. Still, I didn’t look at him, keeping my eyes firmly trained on the front of the tent, even though I was facing him.“Halley.”“Yeah?”“I want to kiss you.”My eyes darted to his. “I thought that’d do it.” His lips twitched, and he lowered his head until I had to fight the urge to close my eyes in anticipation of the kiss that was coming.I swallowed, my lips parting.Preston moved closer.And he kissed my cheek.I jerked out of whatever trance I’d just been in. “What the hell?”He jumped off the stage, grinning. “I guess we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to break the stalemate, won’t we?”“Oh, hell no!” I jumped off, stalking him to his side of the stage. “You just stood there in front of me and told me you want to kiss me, then kiss my cheek? The hell was that?”His eyebrows shot up, amusement flashing in his eyes. “If I didn’t know better, I’d think you wanted to kiss me, too.”“Irrelevant,” I shot back. “But you’re a special kind of asshole to tell a girl you wanna kiss her and then not do it.” I turned around, then stopped. “You know what? When I beat you tomorrow, you can kiss my


.”“You’re way too mad about this.”“I’m not mad!” My voice raised a few octaves. “I couldn’t care if you want to kiss me or not. I most certainly don’t want to kiss you.”“Why are you shouting at me?”“I’m not—” I was shouting at him. “Whatever,” I said in a normal voice. “Make sure you take that money to the bank. Tell Tish I sent you.”I left him on his side of the curtain and went to get my purse. He could get fucked. After all that where I think I was so damn nervous I broke a sweat, he didn’t even kiss me. I wasn’t lying with what I said.He could kiss my ass.I’d even wear my good panties and bend over for him.

Halley is a fun, eccentric, raccoon loving person, who just happens to be the mayors daughter. Raccoon Lady of Creek Falls. That is what the town calls her. Also why she can’t find a boyfriend. She also just happens to be the reigning kissing booth champion at the Creek Falls end of summer fair, 4 years running. But this year’s competition is a very unexpected person…..Preston. Preston is not only her best friend Reagan’s brother, he is also the boy she has had a secret crush on for years. Oh how is she going to make it listening to him kiss all those girls.

Preston was not planning on attending the fair or helping out this year. But when the mayor called for help at the kissing booth, he thought here is his chance. He can knock Halley off her throne and maybe spend some time with her.

When the competition begins, the girls are lining up. Who will be crowned champion this year?

Oh boy!! This book was so much fun to read. I could not put it down. Emma Hart is a rom-com writing queen. I have not read a book yet of her’s that I did not love. Her books are fun, hot, snarky and hilarious. I fall into each story as if I were there witnessing it. This book is rom-com perfection!

The characters in this book are fun and and snarky. Halley is such a sweet and beautiful person. She does for so many and yet never wants anything in return. Yet her confidence in herself is very low. She really struggles with believing in herself. Especially when Preston reveals his secret.

Preston’s character is strong, handsome and artistic. A florist and in line to inherit a lot of money, makes him a sought out hot commodity in the small town of Creek Falls. Making being single harder than it has to be. His character is perceived as something superficial on the surface. His true character is revealed throughout the story. I loved Preston from the very beginning.

This book will be a great read for all you rom-com lovers out there. It has the perfect blend of romance and snarky humor. Emma Hart is a Rom-Com Goddess. All of her books are amazing and fun to read. Each a sure to enjoy read for all. Her stories have a unique blend and twist to keep readers interested and looking for more.
