About Kissing Lessons
Welcome to Kissing Creek, where everything has a romance-themed pun for a name and love is lurking around every corner…
Audrey Miller doesn’t believe in happily-ever-after, so she is definitely living in the wrong town. But she’s never getting out of Kissing Creek because playing pseudo-mom for her younger siblings doesn’t leave time for much else. She’ll do anything to make sure they don’t end up stuck like she is, working as a barista in a college town, serving Pink Passion mochas with Chocolate Smooch donuts.
Then Ronan Walsh, a new young professor, and walking cliché, right down to the elbow patches on his blazer, steps in for a coffee and into her life. She knows his type—intelligent and charming, yet sweet as a cinnamon roll, the sort of man she’s inevitably attracted to but is always out of her league. So why does someone like him have any interest in a worker bee with no future?
Her bland-as-oatmeal existence has nothing to offer, but Ronan’s temporary teaching position is only a stepping stone on his way to somewhere else. He isn’t here to put down roots, Audrey’s roots are firmly planted—neither of them is looking for love. And maybe that’s just perfect.
But in a small town called Kissing Creek, sometimes love can be impossible to avoid…

NICUnurse’s Review of Kissing Lessons by Stefanie London
Kissing Lessons is the first book in Stefanie London’s new Kissing Creek series, and it delved into a lot more serious topics than I originally thought it would when I first saw the cover and read the blurb. Let’s just say it took me places I didn’t expect to go when I first picked it up.
This book is not just about the relationship between the hero and heroine, but it also highlights the importance of confronting negative relationships in our lives and either working to fix them or cutting them out altogether. It also highlights the importance of family–even when it’s not the picture of a traditional family unit. Family is what we make it, and despite what relationships that unit is made up of, a supportive family is important to our growth and our success in life. But we’re all flawed. We’re all human. And we’re all a work in progress. We can work towards accepting our mistakes, failures, and shortcomings and learning and growing from them. And we certainly shouldn’t be a doormat and let people walk all over our feelings, dreams, and goals for our future.
NICUnurse’s Rating: I wouldn’t say this book is angsty, but there are some really emotional parts, so if you’re looking for more of a rom-com, you might not like where this book takes you. There are some light-hearted and laugh out loud moments scattered throughout, but it’s definitely not a rom-com, in my opinion. And while it wasn’t “a can’t put it down” read, it was a very entertaining read that I looked forward to coming back to when I did have to put it down. I loved that Audrey is a young woman who is confident in her body, even if it’s not model thin, and she’s confident in herself even though she’s not a traditional college student. And I really liked that Ronan could see beyond what might trip other young men up and truly see her, value her, and connect with her. Both Audrey and Ronan do a lot of learning and growing in this story, and not necessarily in an academic way. If you enjoy contemporary romance books that lean heavily on emotion, Kissing Lessons is a story you won’t want to miss.
I give Kissing Lessons by Stefanie London 4 out of 5 propellers!
