Genre: Romantic Comedy
Cover Designer: Monark Designs

It started with a kiss.
Then it became so much more.
Love at first sight.
Avery Connor doesn’t believe in it.
But what about love at first kiss?
A favor for a friend. Kiss a stranger and walk away.
But what if that favor, and that stranger, prove to be the turning point of her life?
What if that kiss leads to something more?
Dr. Daniel Stewart is certain it will.
He is determined to make her see him. To feel what he feels.
To have the effects of that kiss last forever.

A story about taking a chance, opening your heart to the moment, and falling in love.




I loved ‘It Started with a Kiss’. Yeah it was an insta-love, definitely sweet and possibly a little sugary for some and things initially happened in a fairly short space of time BUT it was nice to read a book that wasn’t heavy on angst, with unexpected exes popping up or any other drama that I’ve read about lately.

Avery was quiet and shy and in the past hadn’t been made to feel ‘enough’ by anyone but her family and her best friend, Beth. As a favour Avery agrees to help Beth out by being a last minute stand-in for the filming of a video featuring strangers meeting for the first time.
Daniel was a workaholic vet who lost a bet to his sister and had to turn up to a filming featuring ‘first kisses’ between strangers.

Neither of them were particularly looking forward to the filming but from the first time they ran into each other there was a sizzle between this pair. Their first kiss was more than either of them expected and from there things moved quickly between the pair.

There was a realness to how they felt about each other. They were funny, cute and sweet and when they go down to it they were hot…. I was rooting for things to go well for them from the start.
I really liked the supporting characters and the what they added to the story.

It Started with a Kiss was a well written, rounded out story that was so much more than just the meeting and building of a relationship between Daniel and Avery. Told in dual POV (which I’m a big fan of) we knew just how they both felt about each other throughout. I loved that the story went beyond them achieving their HEA and the epilogue was fab!!!

Melanie Moreland has fast made it on to my ‘auto one-click’ list and I can’t wait to see what’s next for her!

I’ve giving this great read 5 big kissable stars!!

New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-seven-plus years and their rescue cat Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them. 

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys travelling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip. 

Melanie delights in a good romance story with some bumps along the way, but is a true believer in happily ever after. When her head isn’t buried in a book, it is bent over a keyboard, furiously typing away as her characters dictate their creative storylines to her, often with a large glass of wine keeping her company.
