Summary: 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.
Review: I read the first book in this series a few years ago and fell in love. So when I found out there was going to be a sequel I was so excited!
Charlie and Kevin's relationship was so awkward. As it should be, how weird would that situation be? Though I have to say I felt bad for George as it was not really his fault and yet he had to deal with Charlie's moodiness.
Charlie and Tess' relationship was still in shambles from the first book and it was really sad. Reading about Charlie wanting to tell her best friend about her life and to ask her advice but then to have Tess still (understandably) upset at Charlie, was heartbreaking when I thought about how good friends they were in If We Kiss.
Kevin's sister was probably one of my favorite parts of the book, she is so sweet and odd.
I really liked this book but I wish more would have happened in it. There was not too much plot development and I wish there had been a little more, but I did enjoy it.
If you haven't read the first book If We Kiss and you like romantic comedy type movie you should go read it! And then pick up Kiss Me Again.
