When I first met him I resisted.
Like any forbidden love, I told myself he was a crush, and it would pass.
That was a lie. It never faded.
And I never expected he would fall for me just as hard.
There were so many reasons that should have kept us apart, least of all, the decade that separated us.
Growing up in New York City, I learned early on that love is a double-edged sword.
Love broke up my parents, love took away my friends, and love — the big, intense, never-been-like-this-beforelove — landed me in therapy.
Now I’m heading to college, and it’s time to give love a clean slate again. But, can I really start over when he’s still in my life?
Because the one man I’ve always wanted, is also the only guy I absolutely can’t have…
And he wants me just as fiercely.
Can I settle for anything less than the love of my life?
21 Stolen Kisses stole my heart in exactly 21 single Seconds!!! This book was amazing. I fell head over heels in love with Kennedy and Noah immediately. This story was smart, witty, so very sweet and beautiful. I absolutely loved it!
Girl meets Boy. Boy is mom’s agent. Moms agent = off limits. 8 years older = definitely off limits. But, what exactly defines off limits? What defines who you can and who you can’t have a connection with? Age really has no numbers and eight years, pffffft that is nothing.
Kennedy is a 17 year old girl who has really never known what true love should be. Well, she knows… However the life she’s lived with her mother distorts it. Keeping secrets, telling covers is all Kennedy has ever known. She loves her mother, but her mother has an addiction. An addiction that has broken many people caused Kennedy to lose a very dear friend and ultimately lose herself landing her in therapy.
Noah Hayes is an agent, a very well put together, smart, sexy, talented agent. He has many clients, but Kennedy’s mother is one of his best. She’s not only a client but a close friend. She gave him his start, helped build his career and has spent a lot of time with him. Spending time with her means, seeing Kennedy often and the more he sees her, the more Noah spends time with her and finds out who exactly she is the more he falls.
But what happens when the timing isn’t right? Do you settle for less then what you know you deserve? Less than what your heart wants? Does it all fall apart or does it wait patiently in the wings for the right moment?
You will have to read to find out! I promise you will love this story. You will laugh, you will feel your heart skip a beat, and if you’re like me you’ll shed a few tears. I even adored the secondary characters, mainly Kennedy’s friend Lane. He was so sweet, so supportive and they were seriously two peas in a pod. I went into this not knowing what to expect. My First Lauren Blakely book…. Will NOT be my last that I can guarantee. This book is a show stopper, the words flowed, the feelings built and the love you will feel will run over. Smooth as wine, sweet like candy, deliciously divine. I loved every single second of 21 Stolen Kisses. It will steal your heart. 5 Sweet Stars!!

He inhales sharply. The look in his eyes says we’re crossing into the danger zone again. It’s the only place I want to be with him. Because when we’re there, nothing between us feels dangerous. Everything feels right.
“I turn eighteen in a few more weeks,” I say, like my birthday is an open invitation for us to slam back into each other.
He nods. “I know.”
A breeze blow by and rustles his hair. A lock falls out of place. Instinct takes over. I raise my hand to reach for his hair.
But he’s faster. He grasps my wrist, and the second he does, the moment expands. It stretches and unfolds into the thing I will replay tonight and tomorrow and the next day. I stare at his hand clasped around my wrist, flashing back to all the times he held my hand, touched my wrist, and ran his fingers along my arm. I shiver as the memories collide, the past slamming into the present.
I look up from our hands to his eyes. Blazing, full of heat. Full of all that restraint from him that I know so well.
