Back of the book

Julie Greene loves flings. Loves steamy first dates, sizzling first kisses, and every now and then, that first sexy romp between the sheets. Comfy pants, sleepy Sundays, movie nights on the couch? Shudder. But when Julie gets assigned the hardest story of her career—a first-person account of that magical shift between dating and “I do”—she’ll need a man brave enough to give a total commitment-phobe a chance at more.

Normally, Mitchell Forbes would be exactly that man. A devastatingly hot workaholic who tends to stay in relationships for far too long, he should be the perfect subject for Julie’s “research.” But what Julie doesn’t know is that Mitchell is looking to cut loose for once in his life. And the leggy journalist notorious for avoiding love is exactly the type of no-strings fling he’s looking for. In other words, Mitchell is the polar opposite of what Julie needs right now. And, at the same time, he’s exactly what she wants.

My Review: 

4.5 Star Review – After The Kiss (Sex, Love & Stiletto Series # 1 series)

I recommend this book.

I enjoyed this book by Lauren. This book includes drama, passion, betrayal and romance throughout the entire story.

Julie Greene needs to write an article for the magazine about a relationship.  So after talking with her best girlfriends they decide that she needs to go undercover and fake date a man to get the info.  They know just the man. 

Mitchell Forbes has just broken up with a long term girlfriend. At a get together his co-worker bets Mitchell that he can’t have a fling with a woman without falling for her and thinking of marriage. He accepts the bet and his co-worker points out Julie. 

With Julie and Mitchell dating each other both of them keep the secret of why they are dating from each other.  The more dates they go on the closer they grow.  Now how are they going to back out of the article and the bet with the co-worker? 

Will they be able to make the right decision?  Will they be able to forgive each other when the truth comes out?
You can feel the chemistry between the two throughout the book.  You also feel there conflict as the days go on and their feelings for each other grow.

Look forward to the next book in this series.
