Let me make this clear right here, right now: I, Halley Dawson, do not care that Preston Wright is kissing other women.

Not a lick. Not at all. Nuh-uh-freakin’-uh.

I do care that he’s doing it six feet away from me behind a gaudy velvet curtain—making him my competition in this year’s kissing contest.

Why do I care, you ask? Because I’ve had an unfortunate crush on the insufferable idiot since I was sixteen years old, but I also know it’s never going to happen.

He’s the Creek Falls bachelor to die for, and I’m the Creek Falls racoon lady who puts peanut butter sandwiches out for them every night.

I’m not going to let him break my four-year-long reign—no matter how many times he breaks the rules and slides the curtain across to do the one thing he’s not allowed to:

Kiss me.

“I never answered your question.”“What question?” I darted my eyes to the side.“Just now. You asked me if I wanted to kiss you.”I did, didn’t I? Right. “Oh,” was all I said.Slowly, he moved his hand to my chin and gently lifted it. Still, I didn’t look at him, keeping my eyes firmly trained on the front of the tent, even though I was facing him.“Halley.”“Yeah?”“I want to kiss you.”My eyes darted to his. “I thought that’d do it.” His lips twitched, and he lowered his head until I had to fight the urge to close my eyes in anticipation of the kiss that was coming.I swallowed, my lips parting.

Preston moved closer.And he kissed my cheek.I jerked out of whatever trance I’d just been in. “What the hell?”He jumped off the stage, grinning. “I guess we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to break the stalemate, won’t we?”“Oh, hell no!” I jumped off, stalking him to his side of the stage. “You just stood there in front of me and told me you want to kiss me, then kiss my cheek? The hell was that?”His eyebrows shot up, amusement flashing in his eyes. “If I didn’t know better, I’d think you wanted to kiss me, too.”“Irrelevant,” I shot back. “But you’re a special kind of asshole to tell a girl you wanna kiss her and then not do it.” I turned around, then stopped. “You know what? When I beat you tomorrow, you can kiss my ass.”“You’re way too mad about this.”“I’m not mad!” My voice raised a few octaves. “I couldn’t care if you want to kiss me or not. I most certainly don’t want to kiss you.”“Why are you shouting at me?”“I’m not—” I was shouting at him. “Whatever,” I said in a normal voice. “Make sure you take that money to the bank. Tell Tish I sent you.”I left him on his side of the curtain and went to get my purse. He could get fucked. After all that where I think I was so damn nervous I broke a sweat, he didn’t even kiss me. I wasn’t lying with what I said.He could kiss my ass.I’d even wear my good panties and bend over for him.

[I received a digital arc for an honest review]

Not surprisingly, Emma Hart has delivered another adorable romantic comedy. Kiss Me Not is a cute best friend’s brother rom-com that includes a kissing booth, multiple bets, and rambunctious raccoons.

“Preston, I’m telling you right now; there isn’t a damn problem on this planet that cannot be fixed by a bag full of hot donuts.”

Halley Dawson has had a crush on her best friends brother since forever. Preston Wright has been crushing on his sisters best friend for just as long. Except they have never shared this knowledge with the other, instead they butt heads and pick arguments to distract from their feelings. Halley is the raining kissing booth champion at the fair but this year her competition is Preston. It’s no fun listening to your crush kissing other people and it isn’t long before they discover they would rather be kissing each other.

“And his kiss – oh, my God, it was the kind of kiss people wrote poems about.”

Kiss Me Not is filled with a bunch of really fun characters. Halley and her friends are seriously the best. I would hang out with their ridiculous selves in a heartbeat. Halley is a sarcastic book nerd who is always helping others, whether that be raising money for charity or caring for her neighborhood raccoons. Preston is charming and sweet and manages to keep up with Halley’s over the topness, but he fell a little flat for me. Yet, together the were adorable and the banter was entertaining.

“Wow. You are a hard woman to please.”
“Not really. Wine, yoga pants, raccoons, books…I’m fairly simple.”

If you’re looking for a low angst quirky romantic comedy with a guaranteed happy ending then Kiss Me Not by Emma Hart is a great choice. I can not wait for Halley’s friends’ books, I bet they will be just as good!

“Apparently, I liked the bookish girl with an affinity for snarky comebacks.”

“I was lost in her. Completely. F*cking utterly, utterly lost. Never had a kiss consumed me half the way this one did.”
