WANTED: ROOMMATE. Must be tidy, polite, and absolutely not my brother’s hot as sin best friend.
I have no idea why I said yes.
Maybe I’d had one too many wines. Maybe I’d done it accidentally. Maybe I’d been sleep-texting.
One thing I know for sure is this: I absolutely do not want Ethan Hawkins in my apartment, up in my business, taking over my space.
Yet he’s here. Moving his stuff into my spare bedroom. Sending a wave of panty-melting, musky man-scent my way every time he walks past me.
Here’s the thing.
We don’t get along–at all. We never have, and I don’t think we’re going to start now that we’re under one roof.
There’s also that little issue where I’m kinda, sorta, totally in love with him…

Cute and quirky romance, full of sass
Emma Hart is, undisputedly, the queen of sass. Her heroines are unashamedly sarcastic, sassy and a little bit weird – while her heroes are sexy, kind and 100% get behind their girls’ quirks. And as you can guess, this story is no different.
Kiss Me Again is the third (and final?) book in the Kiss Me series (after Kiss Me Not and Kiss Me Tonight) featuring a trio of best friends and their journey to happily ever after. (I wouldn’t mind reading Leo’s story, if it’s in the works!) While each book does stand alone, we have been teased about Ethan and Ava’s relationship since the first book. And there are several things that might be confusing (or at the very least not as funny) if you haven’t read the first couple of books – things like Boris the raccoon and the flashing granny, for example!
We meet Ava on the day that Ethan’s moving into her apartment. As I mentioned, she’s got a mouth on her…and she’s also on her period! That was a lot and it took me a couple of chapters to not feel that she was unnecessarily mean! It’s not that I didn’t identify with her – I probably identified with her too much. She’s open and honest about who she is – and doesn’t care what others think about her. She’s who I would probably be if I wasn’t scared that people would come for me if I was always saying what I was thinking!
After those first couple of chapters, the book – and Ava and Ethan’s relationship – really comes into its own. The roommate wars is clever and hilarious. It also allows our couple to bicker and fight but still enjoy each other’s company. It was amusing that all their friends, and we as readers, can see through the whole ‘we hate each other’ schtick! I laughed with pity every time one of them would try to convince someone else of their dislike!
The progression of the relationship was fun and I did get those little butterflies in my stomach when they inevitably gave in and kissed. Sigh. However other than that kiss, it’s not until the end that we get any proper mattress bouncing. That’s not a complaint – just an observation, by the way!
I’m going to be honest and admit that I was toying between 4 and 5 stars for this book. I finally settled on 5 as, although there were one or two things that slightly irked me, they didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the book or the love story overall. Plus, I love Emma Hart and her writing. Her books leave me with that happy, content feeling. She’s like chocolate – I just want to feast on her stories and yet I still always want more and more and more!
If you’re a fan of Emma Hart, or just need a fast paced, cute and quirky romance to make you feel good, then I would recommend this book to you. 5 stars for another great book.

Yes, really. She’s that sarcastic.
