It Felt Like A Kiss - Sarra Manning

I received a copy of this book from the publishers via Net Galley, in exchange for an honest review.

 

Ellie Cohen is a nice girl. She tries to find something nice in everyone, from awkward clients to strangers. She has a string of boyfriends who she has 'fixed', so much so that they have moved on without her so it's safe to say her love life is not the best.

Her famous father is absent from her life and his identity is not public knowledge, which she has no intention of changing. However she's soon uncovered by the paparazzi and her life begins to unfold.

 

This is a light romance story focusing on Ellie and her absent father's solicitor David. The misunderstandings surrounding Ellie's personal life and how she deals with the aftermath of exposure all ensure that the path of true love doesn't run smooth.

 

Ellie's story is interspersed with the story of Ari and Billy, her parents, and add another layer to the story. This is an easy to read story with some likeable characters, for example Tess and Lola, Ellie's flat mates. I didn't particularly warm to David at first and I loathed Billy but I believe this is what the author intended so they were well developed in that respect!

 

I found myself settling down with the book eager to find out what would happen and if and how Ellie would get her revenge, and the man she loved.

 

A nice, light romantic read.
