Review: Price of A Kiss

Price of a Kiss (Forbidden Men #1) by Linda Kage: I don’t care what my cousin says; I am not the queen of impossible relationships. I mean, just because my last boyfriend tried to kill me and left a bit of a scar on my neck, then forced me to move across the country and legally change my name to Reese Randall to escape him, does not mean—

Oh, who am I kidding? For a freshman in college, I have to have the worst dating track record ever.

It’s no wonder love is the last thing on my mind when Mason Lowe enters my life. But the chemistry between us is like bam! Our connection defies logic. And he’s just so freaking hot. Being around him makes me feel more alive than I’ve ever felt before. I even like bickering with him. He could be my soul mate...except for one teeny tiny glitch.

He's a gigolo.

Boy, do I know how to pick them.

TeriLyn's thoughts: Book three of this series made the "best of 2014" of so many of my reading friends I became instantly intrigued. Before reading Eva's story though reading Price of a Kiss was on my priority list. I had no idea what to expect from this story and what I got from it was pleasant, welcomed surprise of a love story. I read this book in one day being so captivated by the story, the plot, and the fun dialogue between the two main characters. So glad I made the choice to start it.

This book had all great components I adore in New Adult love stories. Unlikely heroes and heroines, dramatic situations, love that blossoms from trust built from friendship, and witty, comical banter. The writing lends itself to the reader connecting me with the characters almost immediately, flowing seamlessly, waxing and waning in all the right places to create a subtle hint of drama between the hilarious friendship building between Mason and Reese. Reese's inner dialogue, her thoughts especially about Mason, her jubilant presence, her strength, her fight, and her sarcastic humor all has me rooting for her, believing in her thus believing in Mason even moreso thanks to her. The secondary characters are great too, the plot just as fun as it is heavy so the focus isn't on the sad but on the good.

If you're a new adult lover, this book has it all and I highly recommend reading it. Can't wait to start Be my Hero next!
