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...
I literally read No Kissing Allowed in hours!!!! I loved every bit of it, and couldn’t stop reading until I saw that Aidan got his head out of his butt and realized awesome things.
I freaking adore Cameron. She’s smart, driven, and a great character to look up to. She has hope, even when a certain someone tells her he can’t offer more. She comes from a small town, and feels like she has to prove that she is successful. I do love that regardless of how awful some of her cousins can be when she goes back home for the holidays, she is the better person and takes it with a grain of salt. After all, family is family. Cameron doesn’t expect to hook up with a random stranger, much less want anything more with him, and it’s funny when realization hits her on her first day of work. She plans everything to a T, and doesn’t stray, but sometimes straying brings more to life than ever expected.
Just a few lines about Aidan. He’s yummy, sweet, and is the complete opposite of how he views himself. Please refer to my head out of butt comment from earlier. He lets fear define who he is, and doesn’t think anything can change that. But this thing between him and Cameron is kind of hard to ignore.
While the romance seems to be very quick, it’s actually gradual. Instead of seeing into day to day life, we get their big defining moments, and I appreciate that. I don’t need to know the mundane goings of the relationship. I want the juicy stuff, and West definitely delivers! We see all the monumental decisions forced on these two, and the grappling they have to do to fight there heads and hearts. It’s comical at times, and this would make a perfect RomCom movie.
No Kissing allowed is a total swoon-worthy read. It has the romance, amazing friends, a few awful people, family, and steamy times. Perfect to way to wind down the days of summer!
