    There s a reason Robin Bielman is one of my go to authors Ten books read.48 stars in total THIS is why The lady never fails from the romantic first kiss which induces a serious case of the butterflies, to the grand gesture that will leave your heart singing, she has a gift of bringing her reader a captivating story and couple to become emotionally invested in Blame it on the Kiss is no exception With an undeniable chemistry, Bryce and Honor s journey brings everything from fun and flirting to passion and intimacy And, as the bond between them builds, it brings the emotion to the forefront as these are two people who are both afraid of being hurt This couple will have you cheering them on from the very start I laughed at the humour and sighed at the romance but I appreciated Honor and Bryce for the people they were real, relatable, frustrating at times and loveable And with Sophie and Zane featuring throughout, along with a great cast of secondary characters it brought that close knit family feel I love Blame it on the Kiss is a superb addition to Robin s Kisses in the Sand series and I look forward to seeing what she treats us to next 4.5 stars Copy generously received courtesy of the author for an honest and unbiased opinion and it was my absolute pleasure.

    3.5 We ve come this far Stars The second book in the Kisses in the Sand series focuses on a couple whose connection causes than a few feelings of guilt as they also try to navigate their grief for the loss of a loved one.I think the subject matter in Blame it on the Kiss is one that any author is going to struggle to get the right balance with, in that Honor s best friend was also Bryce s ex girlfriend, and she died Honor cannot deny her feelings for Bryce after running into him months after it happened, and trying to avoid him for the most part, but feels like she is betraying her best friends memory because of it Like what you see. I don t know what you re talking about I could show you Bryce sees things a little differently, not in a callous or unfeeling way, but seeing as Payton had dumped him prior to her death, the feelings of grief and guilt are for slightly different reasons, especially as he comes to realize that his feelings for Honor are completely different and a whole lot stronger than the ones he had for her best friend I may be clean cut on the outside, but make no mistake I like to get very, very dirty when nobody s looking There were parts of this book I loved the banter between the guys when they were together, the progression of the series as a whole, and there were parts where Bryce and Honor were together that were really emotive and heartfelt But for me the balance I previously mentioned was a little bit off in relation to the inclusion and use of the deceased but not forgotten best friend, and the reactions Honor had to some of her interactions with Bryce, especially in the first half of the book There were points where I struggled to understand Honor s motivations, she was a little inconsistent in her direction, and guilt seemed to be used as an excuse than the truth in explanation to than one scenario when she wanted to back away from dealing with her feelings for Bryce No one has ever thought about me the way you do This was still a pretty easy read, and for the most part enjoyable, tropes used than writing played a part in the lower rating, and on the whole this series has been a really enjoyable reading adventure.ARC generously provided via Netgalley, in exchange for the above honest review.

    Slick s review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsI appreciate a book where both the hero and heroine have to overcome some past issues to move forward but they do it without a lot of whining or big blow ups or a whole lot of drama While it took a little time, I was extremely happy that they both figured out what they wanted about the same time and both were willing to risk a lot to be together For two people, a shared past with one woman, leaves them questioning everything especially the growing feelings for each other and makes Blame It On The Kiss a complicated, sophisticated and sexy story that I could not put down.With every good deed and every unselfish act Honor Mitchell proves to everyone around her what a good person she is but an event from her past keeps her from forming relationships and allowing herself to love but fulfilling the wish list of her dead best friend is something she knows she can do with the possible exception of one item but she ll deal with that when she gets to in for now she has to deal with the man that she has no business thinking about much less wanting, the man her best friend ditched before she took her last breath.Ever since his near miss one night stand with his ex girlfriend s best friend in which he finds out his ex has passed away, Bryce Bishop has found it hard to trust women But there is something about Honor that sets his blood on fire and makes him want to help her cross of a few items the wish list especially the one about a one night stand.There was so much I enjoyed about this book from the way these two circled around each other and tried to not give in to the heat between them, to the time they spent together as friends to their agreed one night together that turns into so much In between it all you saw their defenses crumbling, their hearts opening up, and some feelings developing even though it scared them both and had them questioning everything they were doing.I always appreciate a complex storyline and this book was not only that, but there was an underlying sweetness to it that made me smile and a simmering sensuality that rounded it out and made it one simply outstanding romance.Review copy provided for an honest review.

    Robin Bielman once again wrote a sweet, fun, flirty and emotional story that I couldn t put down Honor is a girl living with regrets, she believes that she is too spontaneous to finish a thing, she believes that she hurts others and she doesn t think that she is capable of loving Bryce on the other hand has been hurt by his past and though he is a man that wants a family and a steady relationship, he doesn t want one now.He doesn t want his heart to be broken again When they share a kiss their passion combusts but they are both reluctant to invest They cannot resist though their attraction so they start a game of flirting, with no strings attached relationship.The time they spend together brings them close and slowly love is in the air They cannot turn down their feelings but both being afraid of getting hurt are they going to give it a chance I loved Honor because she is a girl sensitive and caring and Bryce because he is a decent guy, a man that is protective and sexy and wants to give everything to Honor I loved all the time they spent together and Robin had amazing ideas about their dates We also saw great scenes about the characters from the previous book and they were so sweet.It was so good to connect with them again This was a sexy book with humor and an adorable couple that will steal your heart arc kindly provided by the author
