What do a wrong number text, a burning building, and a quirky florist have in common?
A hunky firefighter with an extra-large…hosepipe.
In hindsight, I never should have opened that text message. The last thing I needed first thing on a Monday was a picture of some stranger’s, um, eggplant, in my inbox.
I also should have replaced the batteries in my fire alarm, because my Friday night did not need to end with my apartment building going up in flames.
But it’s fine. It’s fine. Everything is fine.
I’m only lying in a hospital bed with more split ends than I’ve ever had, almost all my Earthly possessions have turned to ash, and apparently, they don’t serve wine to patients in this place.
But like I said, it’s fine.
Until he walks in.
The guy who saved my life. My hero. Noah Jacobs.
And the universe is amusing itself at my expense, because the dirty photo I woke up to on Monday?

Knocked my socks off
Emma Hart has become a staple author of mine – and a definite auto-buy. This book does nothing but place her higher on that pedestal.
This is the second book in the Kiss Me series. If you’ve not read the first in the series – Kiss Me Not – then you might be a tad confused with the references to the friends, family and racoons that we met in that book – but this book definitely does stand alone. But once you start with this book, you definitely won’t want to stop.
I really enjoyed Kiss Me Not. But this book knocked my socks off. I just bloody loved it.
It’s the story of Reagan and Noah – and the unbelievably hilarious and bizarre set of circumstances that lead to their meeting and ultimately falling in love. It starts off with a, well, rather suggestive image sent to a wrong number that happens to be Reagan’s number. I was sceptical about whether I would be happy with a hero that sent such an image to a woman (suspecting or not!) – but our poor Noah was just drunk, lonely and horny so of course I forgave him. And it didn’t hurt that he’s a six-foot plus, built fireman with tatted arms for days, a rescue chihuahua (shout out to the panty stealing Poosh!) and that he’s a gentleman and a sweetheart. With a naughty side too, of course. Well, I suppose we could see that from the pic! *fans self*
Reagan is the kind of girl I wish I was. She’s sassy, sarcastic and barrels right through life and doesn’t let anything stand in her way or get her down. I loved her. The fact that Noah had her a little flustered and a little discombobulated made it clear that the couple were made for each other. They were a delight with each other – laughing and teasing in a way that showed they really understood each other. The fact that I was laughing out loud along with them was just the icing on the cake.
This story didn’t follow the typical pattern of there being some large conflict to overcome on the way to the happily ever after. Instead, it’s more of a story of how they met, how they became friends, how they became more than friends and then how they fell in love. Not having any large stumbling block to their happily ever after didn’t take anything away from the story and it was a book I found myself constantly reaching for and wanting to read more. Even now I’ve finished it, I want to keep reading – I loved these character so much!
As always, Ms Hart writes a funny, sassy, hilarious romance that’s bound to leave you with a smile on your face. Up next is Kiss Me Again which will focus on Ava and Ethan. I can’t wait to get back to this group of friends. These gals are #friendshipgoals – and add in their hunky men and it’s even better. The fact that I’m getting a love story to boot and I’m a happy reader! 5 massive stars for this one – I loved it.

Yes, really. She’s that sarcastic.
