****4 Star Review****
Once Upon a Kiss is a sweet, 100% happily ever after book.
After breaking up with her ex boyfriend, Lacey decides to go on the bday trip she planned while with him. Low and behold, he decided to show up on her vacation with his current girl. In a split second decision, she makes one move that changes the course of her vacation and life.
Drew is on his yearly vacation at his friend's family's resort and his eyes a spot the most Beautiful woman he has ever seen. Just when he is about to make his move on Lacey, she beats him to the punch.
They start their fake romance but that only last for a short period of time because the sparks are immediate. Feelings developed quickly with these two love birds.
Drew is perfection. He is sweet, caring, handsome and will do anything for the ones he loves. Lacey, ugh Lacey got on my nerves quite a bit in this book. I normally want to reach inside books and slap some sense into the male characters but Lacey had me feeling this way. She was very immature in a lot of relationship aspects. Like, WAKE UP GIRL!!! You have a man putting you on a pedestal, treating you like gold, know your worth already. For a while I thought Drew was just too mature for Lacey. Thank goodness she got her act together!
This is a debut book from this author and I really did enjoy it. I am looking forward to more. I believe we are getting Ethan's book next. I am excited and ready for it!
