After the Kiss (Sex, Love & Stiletto, #1) by Lauren Layne

Rating 4/5 stars
Pub. Date August 26th 2013


Julie Greene has built a career out of falling in love. Literally. She’s Stiletto magazine’s resident expert on perfecting the first kiss and assessing whether or not he’ll call.

But when her latest writing assignment requires knowledge of relationships after the puppy-love phase, Julie faces a startling realization: she doesn’t know the first thing about staying in love. 

To figure out what’s supposed to happen after the third date, Julie seeks out the most boring, reliable guy in all of New York. Mitchell Forbes has “long-term relationship” written all over his 401k. He’s calm, practical and utterly dull. Exactly the type of man she’s always avoided. 

But Julie’s surprised to learn that Mitchell’s steady dependability is more than a little sexy; and that having someone to lean on is actually sort of…nice. Soon Julie’s feelings for Mitchell have nothing to do with her research and everything to do with her heart. 

But will he forgive her when he learns that their relationship’s been based on a lie?


This one is actually good. If you can't tolerate the lying don't try to read it. As you can see from the blurb Julianna is lying to Mitchell. I could almost forget the motives behind the beginning of their relationship, if it weren't for some small reminders. Mitchell turned out to be the perfect guy for Julianna. He is not the boring guy he seemed to be. While he is not the God-like hero someone would expect but he is the one I could see as a real boyfriend, outside the world of book. Even though I did not always approved Juliana's actions I liked her
