This novel is no different and delivers an engrossing story that is sure to capture the hearts of readers. Set in a small coastal town in North Carolina, A Kiss Like This follows the story of Brooklyn and Quinn.
Brooklyn, a twenty-something bartender who has been unlucky in love, is thrown for a loop when a stunning man walks into her bar. From the moment they meet, Quinn, the town’s newest resident, and Brooklyn share an instant connection.
Despite their chemistry, Brooklyn’s insecurities, and Quinn’s past, pose potential challenges that serve to heighten the tension and suspense throughout the novel. The two face their challenging secrets and personal demons, from the fear of being heartbroken again to the fear of letting go of past pain.

Each character is unique, with their own quirks and flaws, making them more relatable to readers. The pacing of A Kiss Like This is brisk and requires the reader’s full attention to keep up with the twists and turns of the story.
One significant strength of the book is the small-town setting and references to Southern hospitality and culture. Ney does an excellent job of creating a tight-knit community in her writing, which makes readers feel as if they are part of the town itself.
Another notable aspect of Ney’s writing in A Kiss Like This is the well-handled exploration of toxic relationships and the complicated emotions that come with discovering that something’s not right in those relationships. The author skillfully navigates the topic, drawing readers into the complex experiences of both main characters, helping readers better comprehend the events that have led them to where they are.
Despite Ney’s strengths in character development and storytelling, the novel does have a small flaw – a tendency to become predictable at times – particularly when it comes to the book’s romantic elements. However, the predictable moments may not be noticeable to anyone who enjoys a good romantic novel.
In conclusion, A Kiss Like This is worth taking the time to read. Its strong characters, fast pace, and unique setting make it an engaging and enjoyable read.
Lovers of romantic novels will find themselves enraptured by Ney’s writing style, detailed world-building, and relatable characters. Overall, I give A Kiss Like This 4/5 stars, and I recommend this novel to anyone looking for a cozy, heartwarming read.
