Review: 21 Stolen Kisses by Lauren Blakely

Happy Hump day everyone!   I hope your week has been a good one so far.  So, today I have the great pleasure of giving you a sneak review before my celebration for Lauren Blakely’s 21 Stolen Kisses. This was an addictive novel that kept me wondering if a HEA is in the picture for the two main characters.  This keep you guess love story was an entertaining read that in the end will have you grinning like a fool.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  Have a great rest of the week and be sure to check out the awesome celebrations taking place tomorrow.

When I first met him I resisted.
Like any forbidden love, I told myself he was a crush, and it would pass.
That was a lie. It never faded.

And I never expected he would fall for me just as hard. 

There were so many reasons that should have kept us apart, least of all, the decade that separated us.
Growing up in New York City, I learned early on that love is a double-edged sword.
Love broke up my parents, love took away my friends, and love — the big, intense, never-been-like-this-before love — landed me in therapy.
Now I’m heading to college, and it’s time to give love a clean slate again. But, can I really start over when he’s still in my life?
Because the one man I’ve always wanted, is also the only guy I absolutely can’t have…
And he wants me just as fiercely.

Can I settle for anything less than the love of my life?


Kennedy is the daughter of a very popular TV show writer.  She is also the daughter of a woman who shows that love is exchangeable.  Kennedy doesn’t want that.  She only wants the love of her life.  Unfortunately, that love of her life is the twenty-something Noah.  Noah also happens to be her mother’s agent.  To complicate matters they must pretend and lie which is exactly what neither wants to do.  Though their love affair is made up entirely of stolen kisses they know that nothing can go forward until she is 18.  But, will they last long enough to see if they are just made up of stolen kisses or will they find out that there is more to them then their love.

Noah and Kennedy were such a great pair of characters.  You can’t help yourself but to fall for them.  As a reader you will go back and forth whether you are cheering them on or condemning what they are doing.  The complexity of Kennedy’s story was so deep that you really felt like you were reading about someone much other than her 17 years.  It’s in this that you really forget the age gap between them.  Their love pops off the page and will burrow its way into your heart.  It will make you feel all gooey and warm until its broken and unfortunately you feel that too.  Overall, it was a great book.  I loved every enthralling word that Lauren Blakely put on those pages.  I will definitely be picking up more of her books….as should you.
