The Five Kisses by Karla Darcy
Summary (From Amazon):
If you love Regencies with humor, wit, and fun, Downton Abbey and Jane Austen you’ll love The Five Kisses! This is the first book in the Sweet Deception Regency series and there's lots more to come. The question in The Five Kisses is: can the daughter of a professor with a very small estate interest the heir to an Earl in not just love but marriage? When 13 year old Chad stands up to a bully and rescues a kitten, Gillian saves him from a beating. A thank you kiss surprises them both. If she was older than 9, she might have fallen in love with him right there. But then…" The journey from friendship to love in this traditional Regency will warm the heart of any reader.
I started off really excited to read this book cause a lot of other book blogs recommended it, but when I actually read it I felt really disappointed. It's not that the story isn't good, I just felt incomplete and unsatisfied with the ending.
When reading the title, I thought it'd be a cute little book with friends that fall in love, like Jason Chen's Best Friend, but it's not as cute. I felt like everything was too rushed and I felt unsatisfied with the amount of passion in the story.
The ending was a typical happily ever after ending which just in my point of view, lacked the "meat" to make it a good story.
