Book Review: "No Kissing Allowed" (Melissa West)

Cameron Lawson, recent college graduate with a degree in marketing and the drive to prove herself more than just a small-town Southern girl, has a new job in New York City with a top advertising agency. A one-night stand to cap off her final day before starting work turns out to be a really, really bad idea. When she shows up the next morning for her first day, she realizes that the man she left in bed the previous night is her new boss's boss.


Aidan Truitt is an advertising icon, and he has eyes only for Cameron, which would, she decides, be okay except for that whole ethical and moral question of hooking up with colleagues. When she agrees to see him in secret, he reveals something that might completely ruin her growing attachment to him, but only after her heart gets involved.

Entangled Publishing's New Adult imprint, Embrace, presents No Kissing Allowed, by Melissa West.

Contemporary, romantic, erotic, sweetly Southern, and more, this New Adult novel is a refreshing amalgamation of elements designed to entertain not only recent college grads and young professionals but also those readers who were once that young, excited, and eager to face the world.

Protagonist Cameron narrates the story from her first-person point of view (POV) throughout, thereby drawing the reader very intimately into her world and worldview. We cheer for her as she slowly discovers that her Southern roots still matter to her, dives with enthusiasm into work at the ad agency, and learns how to love a man again after a devastating breakup when she was younger.

In other words, everything that defines a new adult's life is flawlessly incorporated into Cameron's story, making her a stellar character and author West a consummate expert in her field.

For hot romance and passionate devotion to work in the life of a New York City young professional, pick up a copy of No Kissing Allowed, an excellent read.
