Life was smooth sailing for Riley Smith. She’d earned a promotion, was living the dream as a singlegal in a big city, and treated herself to one of her favorite things – a professional basketball game. In Riley’s opinion, nothing ruined a good basketball game like the halftime gag, the Kiss Cam. When the camera lands on her and the sexy stranger in the next seat over, peer pressure from the arena forces them to kiss. It was supposed to be quick, meaningless, and comical. Instead the kiss was hot, delectable, and left her reeling.
It hadn’t been a great night for Camden Rogers, son of Portland’s mayor. On a date with a woman he didn’t care for out of obligation to his politician father, meeting the sassy and intelligent Riley was the last thing he expected. Kissing her, however, was the hottest thing he’d ever experienced. Never one to back down from a challenge, convincing his hesitant kissing partner they could be more would be his biggest accomplishment yet.
They came from two different worlds, a divide Riley was sure they couldn’t overcome, but Camden was convinced she was the one. Will Riley be able to let her guard down and let Camden in? Or will the Kiss Cam be their only sexy encounter?
Author’s Note: Kiss Cam was originally published in June of 2016 as a 19,000-word novella in the Passion in Portland anthology. I have added 55,000 new words and expanded the story into a full-length novel. If you read the original novella, you will not want to miss out on the expanded story. 18+ for mature content.
I liked Riley, who is a nice woman and a hard worker, but she was often plagued by bouts of insecurity when it came to the financial gap between her and Cam. She’s considered the help and he’s considered political royalty, so she was always worried that she was not good enough for him.
Cam was a really nice guy and I liked how open he was with Riley. He refused to hide his feelings or excitement and he wasn’t interested in playing games with her. He wanted a relationship with her and he wasn’t afraid for her to know it.
KISS CAM is a stand-alone romantic comedy, which I found to be a very easy, light and fun read, but ultimately a little forgettable. There’s some humour and some sexy scenes, but there’s no real conflict, nothing that gets the heart racing. It is told in dual POVs and it comes with a nice HEA.
