My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Kiss by Lucy Courtenay was true to its word when it said that Geek Girls everywhere will love this hysterically-hilarious romantic-comedy novel. I found that this novel was a solid 4.5 star but couldn’t help but round up in by rating. It lacked only a little something that would bring it to a 5 star. The thing I really loved was there were NO GRAMMATICAL MISTAKES, with the exception of a few typos. What I mean, there was no sense of ‘amateur writer’ to it – more a bit of in confidence in writing romance…I believe. From the moment I picked up The Kiss, I felt like cackling madly at one characters antics and throwing punches this way and that at another’s actions. You would often see me either giggling or grinning like a goose or sulking and moody. What really amused me was that ‘The Kiss’ was titled very appropriately; there was heaps of kissing and snogging going on! This novel was a light-hearted adventure (most of the time) to follow and an easy read that I finished within a day. In my opinion, this was a lovingly-enchanting stand-alone and a success. A real page turner! Congratulations to Lucy Courtenay on publishing yet another gorgeously covered novel!
1 star : Strongly did not like the book, writing and plot was bad. Idea of the book was against my liking.
2 star : Didn’t like it, didn’t find it interesting or gripping. Seemed to drag on to me.
3 star : An average book. Wasn’t bad or good. Everything else was well done. Original idea.
4 star : Like a 3 star but has potential to it as a series or the book grew on me as it progressed and certain scenes captured me. I Enjoyed it and read it in one sitting.
5 star : I LOVED IT! I stayed up late until 3 am. Author is a genius, characters, plot, idea, development, EVERYTHING was EXCELLENT. Nothing else can possibly be said except that its 5 STAR!
