book blurb

What’s the worst thing about wanting a sexy NFL football player? Everyone else wants him, too.

After catching my boyfriend getting deep-throated by a skanky cage girl, I’ve learned my lesson – never date a professional athlete. Never. Besides, I have more important things to worry about, like not blowing my shot to make it as a broadcast reporter. I won’t let anything get in my way, not even the new “it boy” of the NFL and my hot-as-hell neighbor.

What’s the worst thing about getting death glares from his new neighbor? It doesn’t make him want her any less.

I’ve worked my ass off to make it to the pros. The last thing I need is the complication of a relationship, especially since my last one was a total train wreck. But I can’t stop thinking about the feisty girl next door with the smart mouth. And I’d love nothing more than to show her what to do with that mouth.

Friends with benefits might be the best idea he’s ever had. Or the worst.

Kissing Madeline is a companion novel to DEAREST CLEMENTINE and FINDING DANDELION. Each book is a stand-alone.

my review

5 Stars

I seriously adore Lex Martin and her books. I finished Kissing Madeline experiencing that warm, shiny, happy feeling you get when you’ve been truly romanced by a love story.

Daren and Maddie’s story both was sweet and sexy. These characters are career dedicated individuals who are over being in a relationships. They’ve lost faith in finding true love and in having a partner that truly supports their ambitions.  Reading about these two people stumbling through falling in love was the highlight of my week.

The book’s romance is coupled with mischievous events and a sense that someone is working against the couple finding their happily after ever. It adds a nice edge to the story and takes the plot to the next level.  There isn’t a boring moment in the book.

I would definitely recommend Kissing Madeline. It can be read as a standalone but it is part of a series. The first two books are filled with characters that are worth meeting and give you a lot of details regarding Daren and Maddie’s back story. I absolutely loved each book – must read romances!!
