A Kiss Like This (Kiss & Make Up #3) by Sara Ney
This novel, along with all others in this series, is a standalone with no cliffhanger. You're welcome.
ABIGAIL DARLINGTON IS AWKWARD…
She will never be “that” girl. You know the one: that girl on campus, confident in her own skin. Always saying the right things. Putting herself out there. Knows how to talk to a guy without stammering.
Nope. Shy but clever, and easily embarrassed, Abby is fine being the wallflower in her circle of outgoing, beautiful friends; she would rather read about a sexy book boyfriend than actually have a live, breathing one.
…BUT CALEB LOCKHART IS WORSE.
Star goaltender for the University’s hockey team, Caleb is quiet and broody, preferring the solitude of his orderly, regimented life. He doesn’t like, or need people—and plans to keep it that way. One more year left of hockey and he’ll be long gone.
AWKWARD NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD. Both their lives change the day that Abigail falls for Caleb. Well, falls directly on top of him, to be accurate. Because sometimes we don’t settle into love.
We fall there.
WARNING: This book contains cursing, and LOTS of it. It also has sex, uncomfortable and often awkward situations. Not to mention, the secondary characters say some really inappropriate s**t. Not intended for readers under 17
Oh my goodness gracious I thought I loved Cece and MAtthew's story, but they have nothing on the love I had for Abby and Caleb. Oh these two....I loved them so freakin much. This story was definitely my favorite of the series (even though I loved them all). Man Abby + Caleb = Swoon!
Abby is shy and awkward and doesn't have much experience with guys. She is a good girl, she is smart and fun and would rather stay home in her pajamas than go out to the bar. She was so sweet.
Caleb is the goaltender for the college hockey team. He is quiet and brooding and just as awkward as Abby. He has only had a girlfriend once for a few days back in middle school. It is just not for him. Or at least he has never found anyone worth doing the whole relationship thing with. He keeps to himself, is grumbly, and oh I love him. I love the big grumbly teddy bears! They are one of my favorites! Caleb does not sleep around. He prefers to keep to himself and make sure his roommates/teammates don't destroy their house. He is the responsible one and he always just takes them making fun of his introvert ways.
When Abby and Caleb meet it was so freakin cute! Right from the start I loved the two of them together. They were both so awkward and didn't know what they were doing. Oh Caleb was the best! His "moves" were amazing. The slowly trying to figure this all out was so sweet and I wanted it to go on forever. These two I loved so much. I love that neither of them has much experience, that they both fumble around and make every situation more awkward that it needs to be. They were amazing. Do yourself a favor and go read this book. It is awesome!!
