Perfect Kiss (Hope Falls, 9) by Melanie Shawn


Levi Dorsey didn’t want much and never complained. The private, sexy bar owner was content in his life and excited to move forward with his new business project. There was just one problem–he’d never been able to forget about that kiss…or about her.

For her, everything had fallen apart…

Shelby Kellan was once confident in knowing who she was and what she wanted. But recent events caused the gorgeous, blue-eyed beauty to barely recognize the woman she saw when she looked in the mirror. She knew she needed a fresh start. Could she do it with his kiss still lingering on her lips?

Eighteen months ago, Levi and Shelby shared the perfect kiss. Now, he wanted more, but would she be able to give that to him after already losing so much?

My Rating:



Melanie Shawn has been one of my favorite authors since I was introduced to her Crossroads Series, and since starting to read the Hope Falls Series I have been just as enamored with her characters and the storylines. I love that when I start any of Melanie’s books I am immediately sucked in and don’t want to stop reading at any cost. But I am truly bummed when I am done and have to wait until I can start my next journey into Hope Falls. I also love that these books can be read as standalone novels, but who’s kidding? Do any of us do that? I think we all one-click our way through the series as fast as we can read them. But that aside, I thoroughly enjoy that we still have character reappearances through the series and we get to continue on in their stories as well.

Perfect Kiss is just that, a perfect love story with humor and love, sorrow and joy, chemistry and crazy heat, all the things that make Melanie Shawn’s books so realistic and endearing. I loved these characters and the way they healed each other and through that, earned their happily ever after. I thought Melanie blended the characters vulnerability and strength magically to handle a delicate storyline topic. All of Melanie’s books always have the perfect blend of romance, sex and plot.

This can be ready as a standalone novel, even though you will want to read the entire series, in order!
