Product DetailsThe Kissing Game by Suzanne Brockmann
Sunrise Key native and aspiring private investigator Frankie Paresky has her first bona fide case—a client has hired her to find the missing heir to a priceless property. But there’s one complication: Simon Hunt, her best friend’s brother and a notorious heartbreaker, insists on being Frankie’s assistant. For Frankie, even Simon’s street-smart know-how isn’t worth the cost of dealing with his distracting good looks and overactive libido. But Simon’s on a mission to prove he’s not the man Frankie thinks he is. The truth is, he’s been dreaming about Frankie since they were teenagers, and not one woman on his endless list of conquests has managed to stop him. But he needs to work fast. Because the real Frankie—every gorgeous inch of her—isn’t under wraps anymore, and a stranger is already moving in.

This was a cute book. It is connected to the book Kiss and Tell. You do not need to read that one to enjoy this one, you met Simon in that book. Like Kiss and Tell, this is a friends to lovers book, which is one of my favorite themes. There is no suspense or anything like that in this book, it is a straight contemp. romance with a very solid, nice storyline.
Frankie gets hired to find a person by the name of John who vacationed there 10 years ago. Needle in a haystack, right. Well Simon is there when she takes the job and decides to help her out. Simon is realizing that he is sick of meaningless relationships, but is not fully willing to admit that he wants love. Frankie knows that she has been in love with Simon since she was 12. But has enough self esteem not to chase after him or risk losing their friendship (or more of her heart) by sleeping with him.
Like I said good solid read (like most of her older contemps). I give it a B.
