Blog Tour: Kissing Trouble by Morgana Phoenix: Review
Series: In The Dark
Author: Morgana Phoenix
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Their screams will be his lullaby.
Escaping into the wilderness should have been a piece of cake for a super-babysitter like Julie Brewer. But even she isn’t prepared for the horror awaiting their arrival, or the man who had broken her heart all those years ago to suddenly show up on the doorstep.
Mason Brody has a plan and it is simple: wait for Julie to grow up. Yet in no way is he prepared for the fierce amazon who ambushes him with a baseball bat, or the way the shy fifteen year old has blossomed into a beautiful, passionate woman he can't get enough of.
But there is so much more than just their past between them. There is a dark force lurking in the shadows, waiting for the chance to appease its hunger for death and it will stop at nothing until it is fed.
Can Mason and Julie keep the evil at bay long enough to escape? Or will the monster add their lives to its list?
Morgana Phoenix has done it again!!!! This book was fan-freaking-tastic!!!! I haven't read a book that I haven't loved of hers. Every time she has a new release, I just can't wait to get my hands on it. I know that whatever she writes will be phenomenal. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Each chapter left me wanting more so I had to keep going. I couldn't put the book down. I loved that Kissing Trouble wasn't predictable. I mean halfway through I started getting a few little hints as who the evil person was, but you have to really pay attention to catch those. There were a few surprises in this book that left completely shocked.
Julie is a character a lot of us can relate to. She is down to earth, caring and kind. Even though her parents seem to be rich, above others, she never let that go to her head. She wasn't into the beauty all the time like her mother wanted her to be. She went to school to be who she wanted to be, and I loved that about her. I also loved how she could kick some major butt which she proved big time when she took all 3 guys down!!! Mason, Shaun and Luis got their butts kicked and I thought that was so hilarious!!! But meeting Mason again has brought up a lot of memories. Memories she can't forget. Mason is an all around great guy. He has loved Julie since high school. But he loved her enough to let her go and live her life until they met again. That there made me fall in love with him even more. His feelings for her were so real that I honestly felt that. She meant the world to him and he didn't want her not to live while he was gone. So when he finally met her again, he did whatever he had to do to get her forgiveness and love. Even with all the bad stuff happening, he put her first. Shaun, Shaun, Shaun. What can I say about Shaun. He is a real jerk, but he has his moments. He really cares for his best friend Mason, and doesn't want anything to come in between their friendship. Mason is all he has. I would love for Shaun to get his own story, because I would love to learn more about him. he was a very interesting character.
Kissing Trouble was a book that I will definitely be rereading as I do with her other books. The characters in this story are so lovable and real that I want more of them!!! Morgana Phoenix always has sexy as hell book boys. Book boys that have become my book boyfriends. The plot was crafted perfectly. I loved how everything was woven together and how it all unfolded. I am hoping that Morgana's next book in this series is about Shaun!!! He is a character I can't wait to get some one on one time with. At the end, I really got see him a new light so I more of him!!! This book is a MUST read and I highly recommend it!!! You will not be disappointed with this book!!! It is a definite reread for me!!!
