I received a signed print copy of this book through a giveaway contest on The Romance Review website, and the following is my honest opinion.

 In “Kiss Me Twice” Ms. Darin has given her readers a sweet, yet tender, amusing, love story without the usual sex scenes passionate ones using contain.

 I know I’m reading a good romance novel if it triggers something in my life I can relate to.  As I read this book the lines of the song “It’s Been a Long Time,” began to play in my head. If you’re not familiar with the song here are the lines:

 Kiss me once, then kiss me twice

Then kiss me once again

It’s been a long, long time

Haven’t felt like this, my dear

Since I can’t remember when

It’s been a long, long time

You’ll never know how many dreams

I’ve dreamed about you

Or just how empty they all seemed without you

So kiss me once, then kiss me twice

Then kiss me once again

It’s been a long, long time

While in reality three days is not a long, long time; but in Bailey’s mind each day seems like an eternity, especially since her wedding day is involved, and her groom is simply gorgeous. There’s a complete void in her life now, a void which only can be filled when she has Carter back in her arms, and to have him recognize who she is. This is not as easy as it appears as there are lots of his fans [he’s a wonderful Elvis impersonator] are vying to get his attention and make him their own which I feel adds an element of intrigue to the story.

The author’s skillful writing makes this multi-genre story an enjoyable reading experience and the reason I’ve given it 5 STARS.
