Ribbon Ridge #5
Darcy Burke
Releasing on January 19, 2016.
Avon Impulse


Denver real estate mogul, Liam Archer, has always been a thrill-seeker, and the loss of his identical twin brother has only intensified his reckless behavior. Sky diving, heli-skiing, motorcycle riding…he’s tried everything once. Except falling in love. Liam doesn’t do relationships, but a no-strings fling with Aubrey Tallinger-the smart, gorgeous lawyer handling his brother’s estate-is totally his speed.

At first, hooking up with Liam whenever he’s in Ribbon Ridge is perfect; but Aubrey fears she could fall hard for the sexy daredevil, if he’d only stop refusing to acknowledge the demons he’s trying to outrun. To protect herself from heartbreak, Aubrey ends their affair. But this time, Liam isn’t leaving town and instead of seduction, he wants to be…friends.

The white hot attraction between them still sizzles but Liam knows that winning Aubrey back won’t happen in his bed. He’ll have to convince her that he’s more than the careless, adrenaline junkie she believes him to be. Because when they kiss, Liam feels whole again… and he isn’t ready to give her up without a fight.






I received an ARC of this book from Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

I have to be honest and admit that I wasn’t able to read this series from its very beginning. However, the first book I read was a good one, so I decided to continue on. Anyway, each book can be read as a standalone, so I didn’t feel like it mattered too much that I wasn’t able to read the first three books.

When We Kiss is yet abother enjoyable addition to the series. I don’t know if it’s a really great book. I think there’s lots of cliches on it, but I enjoyed it, so it’s not a bad book at all. The only downside I could think of was that it took a while for me to really connect with the characters, especially the hero. While there was a reason to the first impression that he leaves readers. However, I find that he was difficult to like for most of the book. The heroine was so much better, but I still wish she didn’t lose her resolve everytime the hero was within reach.

In terms of contemporary romance novels, this book is probably in the middle when it comes to story, entertainment value, and staying power. If you like easy romances that won’t break your heart so much but still give you the good kind of feeling at the end, When We Kiss is the right book for that.
