I received this ARC of Just One Taste by Kimberly Kincaid from Kensington Books through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Of course, her job as a physical therapist means she won’t see much of Jesse, even if he’s a few thin floorboards away—unless she seeks him out. And with his sculpted body and slow-burn gaze, she might be tempted. Maybe the fixer-upper projects she has planned for the cabin will keep her mind off him. Or maybe her instincts to strip the place down will get out of hand…
Kindle Price: $1.99
What drew me in to this novel when I first read the synopsis was Jesse's character. I'm always drawn to a character that has served in the military. They tend to be complex based on their experiences. Keeping that in mind, I struggled to really sink into the story.
At first it was hard to get a read on any character, especially Jesse, with the way the story was written. I kept moving on to other novels but was still interested enough to come back. It was more than halfway through that I really thought Jesse and Kat had a true connection. The encounter where Jesse works was one of my favorite scenes. Their conversation flowed and seemed effortless. This is what I was looking for since the beginning which would have been a sure way to hook me. I did enjoy the story line and the challenges that Jesse and Kat faced. However I thought that the resolution to the main conflict was very brief, and there was no real struggle towards the end.
I give Just One Taste 3 out of 5 stars.
Kimberly Kincaid writes contemporary romance that splits the difference between sexy and sweet. When she's not sitting cross-legged in an ancient desk chair known as "The Pleather Bomber", she can be found practicing obscene amounts of yoga, whipping up anything from enchiladas to éclairs in her kitchen, or curled up with her nose in a book. Kimberly is a 2015 RWA RITA® finalist who lives (and writes!) by the mantra that food is love. Kimberly resides in Virginia with her wildly patient husband and their three daughters.
I devour books in days and dabble at being a writer.
