Secret Kiss was a fun read. Right from the start I loved both Adam and Jane. There is just something there between them, this electricity, that you can't ignore. Oh it was fun. 

Adam has been burned before. He had fallen for someone who lied and cheated. Someone who made him not really believe that he can trust someone again. Someone who is still hanging on and causing problems for him. He doesn't want to deal with it anymore, he just wants to be left alone to live his life and get on with it.

Jane is also tentative to really let someone into her life. She has lost people before and she doesn't want to go through that again. She just wants to do her own thing and be happy. She has a great job, great friends, a great life. Then she sees Adam and she can't stop thinking about him. She was so cute! Oh I loved it. I loved her "Lucy" moments, I loved how she would just babble on when she is nervous, I just loved her. She would get so frazzled around Adam that she would just blurt out things, small lies, and then be so upset with herself for being a liar. Nothing major, nothing that was really important, things that we all do, but it was so cute.

Adam is just as taken with Jane even if he is fighting it as much as he can. It is hard though as he is working in the same room as her, living next door to her, and just seeing her in the small town they live in. He tried to stay away, but at the same time he can't help but want to be closer to her. They were just too sweet together!

Of course there is a bit of drama before their happily ever after, but it was nice that these two, once they both succumb to the inevitable, are all in. They are perfect together! Oh this story is one of  my favorites in the series. These two were just so sweet together I can't get over it. Definitely give this book a read. It will just make you smile so big.
