Just One Kiss by Carly Phillips

The Kingston Family #6
Carly Phillips
Release Date: August 16


It was supposed to be one fun night of hot sex.
It turned into a second. Then a third.
Now Mother Nature is having the last word—with a secret baby surprise!

Jade Dare has done everything in her power to overcome her mother’s unstable influence. Changed her name. Became a success. Vowed never to risk passing on the potential for inherited pain. What has it gotten her? One fiancé who wanted her for money. A second who cheated on her with his brother’s wife.

Now she’s sworn off men. Or at least off serious relationships. But when the chance to indulge in a one night stand with a man she’s secretly fantasized about arrives, she jumps in. Only to land heart-first into a case of the feels she can’t bring herself to trust.

Knox Sinclair always suspected he liked his brother’s fiancé a little too much, that’s why he kept his hands to himself. But with ties broken and Jade all too willing, a no-strings-attached night sounds like a damned good idea.

Except one night isn’t nearly enough. But while Knox is busy convincing Jade they have a chance at forever, the past is planning one last parting shot.

Just One Kiss by Carly Phillips
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve been waiting Jade’s book on pins and needles and now that I’ve read it I can say the wait has been worth it. She has been played twice already so I could understand her standoffish attitude towards men in general. But when she sees Knox again after having found her ex cheating on her with Knox’s wife, the both sense the attraction. They act on it but settle that it would be only one night. But soon they realize that what they feel for each other is worth exploring more.
The only problem I had with Jade is when she learns that she’s pregnant she runs but given her past it was (kinda) understandable. Here’s where I fell head over heels in love with Knox. Despite not knowing her condition, he was ready to go to hell and back just to convince her that she was it for him and that they are worth a fighting chance. I loved him for not standing down but decided to stay by her side through good and bad.

As said, I was super excited for this book and now that it’s behind me, I can’t wait to see the next Dare sibling fall. Asher be aware – love is coming!
