A kiss is just a kiss. It doesn’t have to mean anything. Does it?
At seventeen, Merry’s never been kissed. Since he doesn’t want to disappoint his prom date, he asks his more experienced best friend, Boone, for some pointers. Surprisingly, Boone agrees to give him a hands-on lesson.
But they have no idea what they’re getting into.
They explore hundreds of ways to make out, but somehow it isn’t enough. A week later, they’re back together for another session. This time things go further than either of them planned, and their relationship becomes awkward and uncomfortable.
Have they learned enough to salvage their friendship and help it evolve? Their lessons have come to an end. They can either part ways forever… or share a true love’s kiss.
This might be a YA novel, but it's stunning in its beauty, in its innocence, in its romance. Loved, loved, loved this.
So, this is short and quite sweet and rather innocent, as well as being very romantic. I loved it. Loved the kissing, loved the guys' friendship, loved their romance and loved their dawning awareness of the other being their 'it'. I can't really say much more, but it's a tale that warmed my heart and made me want to read more of these guys years and years later in their lives, showing their mature love and their HEA being lived.
