Sidonie Lindstrom's hands and heart are full—she's been uprooted from the urban life she loves, she's grieving for her brother while raising her foster son Luis, and she's trying to find a job with meaning. But her burdens feel lighter when she meets rural lawyer Mackenzie Knightley. Their attraction is powerful and unexpected. Life is perfect… until Sid learns that Mack hasn't been completely honest about his job.
When problems arise with Luis' foster care situation, she must decide: can she trust Mack again, when she has so much more to lose?
Kiss Me Hello is the second book in this series that I have read. While the characters are the same, each book can be a standalone story. I enjoyed the fact that I did recognize the characters and knew of the background. It made me feel more connected and invested in the outcome of the characters.
I felt this one started just a little slower, but quickly had my attention. I was trying to figure out how a horse shoer could make a single foster mom fall for him. I mean I got that Mack is so hot and steamy, but how did he fit into Sid’s life? I enjoyed reading and watching their feelings develop. The circling around each other was entertaining, but I truly loved how they were able to communicate and discuss their problems. They both knew that they were somewhat in the wrong and were able to work through that and come out trusting each other.
Luis was the perfect foster child. He knew that his life could get pulled out from under him without any warning and seemed always prepared for it. Watching his standoffishness slowly go away and him show his love for Sid and Mack was wonderful. I love when a boy can show his feelings without being gushy or made out to be soft.
Kiss Me Hello is the perfect read for a romantic at heart. I enjoyed it and am anxiously awaiting more in the Sweetest Kisses series.
