    Axel was adorable!

    I've been following along with these families and friends for a while now. I'm the kind of reader who loves when characters constantly show up in book after book, so I can easily say that I really enjoyed seeing everyone again. I've gotten to know both Rena and Axel as side characters. I'm always amazed how different a side character from a previous book can be once they become a main character. Axel was a very good surprise. I adored him in this book. You get a lot of Axel's pov. The way he feels about Rena was something that just melted me into a puddle. The fact that he is this big, Viking-like guy who doesn't talk that much and can come off a bit scary, could show that shy, crush-like personality just slayed me. I loved him. The problem with me loving Axel so much, is that I really wanted to knock Rena in the head. A lot. All I can say is if I had this Viking God courting me, I would die a happy woman. Despite wanting to shake Rena a few times, I did truly enjoy this book and seeing all my favorite side characters again.

    Kissing Games

    I enjoyed Rena and Axel’s love story in The Kissing Game by Marie Harte. Rena Jackson has been searching for Mr. Right with little success. After working in a dive bar for years she is ready to open her own hair salon but will miss seeing Axel Heller. Mechanic Axel has that tall, brooding, handsome thing going for him but is also a buttoned-up Germanic who doesn’t talk much. At six foot six, Axel is intimidating to most people. He has had a crush on the beautiful Rena for months but not being romantic he has no idea how to approach her. He has no idea to show Rena what he feels and is afraid she’s slipping out of his reach. With Valentine’s Day approaching, Axel makes a crazy, desperate attempt to get his chance with Rena. He corners her away from the crowd and says "I bet you a kiss you can't resist me." May the games begin!! I liked these two. Axel might have been quiet and brooding but when he had something to say you wanted to listen. Whether owning his own garage, house, or Rena, Axel knew what he wanted and went after it. Now he had to prove to Rena, by Valentine’s Day, that he deserved of her love; despite making lots of mistakes. Rena needed to relax her unrealistic expectations of love, learned through reading her romance novels. She also needed to open her eyes and realize how hard Axel was trying and how much he wanted to protect; especially from the skinheads harassing her and causing damage to her salon. Ms. Harte wrote a wonderful, funny and sexy story that should not be missed. She provided a tale rich with sexual chemistry, humor, and endearing characters giving Axel a chance to prove he truly loved Rena and that they a happy ever after future together. I highly recommend The Kissing Game to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

    Axel's awkward efforts: so sweet!

    Axel ingenuously negotiates the pitfalls of wooing his Valentine💟 This book has its pluses and minuses, but overall I really liked German hero Axel and his awkward attempts to win Rena's affection. His pre-Valentine's Day courtship campaign, a type of "Twelve Days of Christmas" gift giving in the weeks before Valentine's Day, included some trite, some kitschy, and some wildly risque presents and I was looking forward to each day's unwrapping. Axel starts out the glowering strong and silent, brooding muscleman but I liked his transformation as the story progresses. Aah, kids and animals really do know who the good ones are! And, yes, their romantic encounters include some serious heat. This romance, despite its bumps, has an upbeat vibe, mostly thanks to Axel's enthusiastic and ingenuous moves to please Rena. I also liked the subplot involving Rena's relationship with her mother. I did not feel Axel's backstory with his father and brother was quite as successful. On the less positive side, there are a passel of characters and pre-established relationships that were difficult to keep straight since I had not read about any of them previously. For me, the sheer number detracted from my ability to focus on Axel and Rena. And the whole turf war thing did not quite work for me. I read a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

    like getting in touch

    I enjoyed the book, however I have a lot of reviews that readers were not happy about the secondary characters, and yes this is written as a standalone however we do have a lot of again the secondary characters were characters of previous book, and since I read those and enjoyed those I liked touching base with them. We have Rena which I remembered here from Donavan's book and was wondering when she would get hers and she finally got. Rena is a romance reader and lover of the genre so she dreams of her happily ever after, and she finally gets her chance with Axel who has been crushing on her for a while. They are little rough, a little problem with communication but give them a chance.. rcvd an ARC at no cost to author..Voluntarily reviewed with my own thoughts and opinions.

    Makes a little bit naughty feel so very nice.

    Harte entertains readers by flirting with their hearts. The Kissing Game makes a little bit naughty feel so very nice with a tempting sense of humor and a couple of saucy main characters. Rena is a firecracker. She knows her mind and speaks her heart refusing to hold anything back. Axel is an alpha that has a short fuse and a soft heart. The Kissing Game packs a slow burn with long lasting results.
