No Kissing Allowed
Release Date: 07/28/15
Entangled Embrace
New Adult
Summary from Goodreads:
Armed with her besties, an embarrassing number of
shots, and her list of 10 Wild Things To Do Before Adulthood, recent grad
Cameron Lawson is partying it up before she starts her dream job at New York’s
biggest ad agency. Her last task?  Hook up with a random guy. And while
it’s so not her style, the super-sexy guy sitting next to her is definitely
game. No names. No details.
At least, that was the plan.
On her first day of work, Cameron discovers her
hook-up is none other than Aidan Truitt—her new boss’s boss. Talk about failing
the “no fraternizing with coworkers” policy on an epic level. Especially when
Aidan makes it clear their one night was only the beginning. Falling for him
could cost her everything, but sometimes the only way to get what you want is
by breaking a few rules…

My Review : “No
Kissing Allowed” by Melissa West was a “surprise read” for me. I have to admit
when I read the blurb already the names of several novels floated my mind to
compare this book to. But even though there were several inevitable
similarities this book still had enough unique moments to make it good. But I
will admit that the setting of this “agency”, than Aidan and also a good part
of Cameron did remind me a lot of the Crossfire Novel but not in a bad way.
More in a “if you are a fan of … you should read this” kind of way. But if I
made that slogan I would mislead the readers, because the story itself was
different – it was really only a part of the setting that reminded me.

Anyway –
the plot is well developed and believable. The author writes at a good, steady
pace and I totally like the character development. For me there is only one
real issue with this book, which is also the reason it did not get a full 5
Stars. My issue is the timeline. Cameron was already having her inner
monologues about wanting more out of a relationship, while I as a reader felt
she did not even get to really kiss the guy (I am not counting their first
meeting). Something along that “time management” felt off, there seemed to be
to little communication between them for the time they were supposed to have
spend together.

But
neglecting this personal issue I had (which others might feel totally different
about) – this is a really good book I would like to recommend to you
