|It Started with a Kiss by Melanie Moreland is a super sweet insta-love at first kiss tale. Avery Connor is forced by her best friend to help with a “Kiss A Stanger” project. Daniel Stewart is ready for love and can’t help but act on the chemistry he feels for Avery after their steamy kiss. Can a love that starts off with an explosion of heat with stand or will it wither out?
I’ve had Melanie’s The Contract on my kindle and a signed copy on my bookshelf for ages so I was really excited get a chance to read It Started with a Kiss early. I dove into this book and loved the beginning. The idea of love at first sight/kiss was utterly romantic and with the whole kiss a stranger concept – I swooned. Where this story failed me was in events moving along the plot. Drama was missing and I feel it would have helped to offset the sweet love story between the leads. 3 Stars for It Started with a Kiss by Melanie Moreland

A story about taking a chance, opening your heart to the moment, and falling in love.
Review by Christine:
New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-seven-plus years and their rescue cat Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.
While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys travelling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.
Melanie delights in a good romance story with some bumps along the way, but is a true believer in happily ever after. When her head isn’t buried in a book, it is bent over a keyboard, furiously typing away as her characters dictate their creative storylines to her, often with a large glass of wine keeping her company.
