Despite her own dumpster fire of a love life, Calista Franklin is a hopeless romantic. Unfortunately, her life is filled with an amount of busy that precludes her from dating and finding Mister Right. Her best friend’s sudden nuptials, however, place an unexpected opportunity for love within arm’s reach.
Kirk Langley is suddenly thrust into being a single parent upon the untimely demise of his brother and sister-in-law. Balancing caring for his six year old niece in addition to running his own business leaves little time for dating. But when his closest friend drops the bomb that he’s getting married, Kirk’s forced to spare some time to get to know the maid of honor.
Neither were looking for love, but their close proximity during the wedding planning process draws Calista and Kirk close, allowing them to find in the other what they didn’t know was previously missing
There are three main reasons I liked Last First Kiss by Nicole Falls.
There was a mention of General Hospital early in this book and everybody knows how much I still like me some GH, so score one!
Second reason? That little Ciel was the cutest fictional little girl I’ve liked in a long time. And what about her nickname? Baby Blue! Score two!
Third, and perhaps most importantly, this book is named after one of my favorite Tamia songs. If you never dedicated a Tamia song to someone, were you ever really in love?
Now after those three reasons, is there even any reason for a proper review? Because I feel like this is sufficient enough to tell you to read this book.
Calista is a hopeless romantic if her love of romance novels and movies are any indication. She’s single after a 10-year relationship ended. She’s not looking for love and is perfectly content with her book baes. However, love finds her with Kirk. After a family tragedy, Kirk is tasked with the responsibility of raising his adorable niece, the aforementioned Ciel.
Calista’s best friend is getting married and she’s the maid of honor. The best man? Kirk.
As with every Nicole Falls novel, we are guaranteed quite a few belly laughs and a pop culture reference or two. The characters were down the earth, the circumstances were heart-tugging and overall, it was a real feel-good novel.
