Review: No Kissing Allowed by Melissa West
A new adult romance from Entangled's Embrace imprint...
No kissing. No touching. And definitely no falling in love...
Armed with her besties, an embarrassing number of shots, and her list of 10 Wild Things To Do Before Adulthood, recent grad Cameron Lawson is partying it up before she starts her dream job at New York's biggest ad agency. Her last task? Hook up with a random guy. And while it's so not her style, the super-sexy guy sitting next to her is definitely game. No names. No details.
At least, that was the plan.
On her first day of work, Cameron discovers her hook-up is none other than Aidan Truitt-her new boss's boss. Talk about failing the "no fraternizing with coworkers" policy on an epic level. Especially when Aidan makes it clear their one night was only the beginning. Falling for him could cost her everything, but sometimes the only way to get what you want is by breaking a few rules...

As Cameron gets ready to start her first real job in the working world, she decides to blow caution to the wind and creates a 10 wild things to do before adulthood list. Her friends help her with her list by adding a number eleven: Hook up with a stranger. Cameron is a good girl. Did what she’s supposed to do. Go to school, get good grades, get a good job-she doesn’t do anything random and definitely has no intention of actually going through with number eleven. Until a guy at the bar has overheard the whole conversation with her friends. He ropes her into kissing him. Soon after she spending the night with him but in the morning shoves him out the door never getting his name not caring because she has no intentions of seeing him again. Cross off number eleven! When she starts her new job, she’s introduced to Aiden one of her boss’s and its none other than the hook up guy! Oh no! This is uncomfortable and awkward to say the least! Both try to make the best of it but Aiden has a problem. He can’t get Cameron out of his head! The more he sees her, the more he can’t stay away and he knows he should, especially since his company has a no employees dating policy.

I really had a fun time reading this story! I could relate to Cameron and understood her wanting to let loose just once in her life. She’s been hurt before vowed never to be weak again. I liked her resolve. She felt like my friend and just wanted to help her anyway I could. I equally liked Aiden-again totally relatable. He’s damaged because his father walked out on he and his mom and has always treated them like crap. He never wanted to do that to someone so he just never got into any relationships. Until he wants one with Cameron, but he’s afraid.

This is my first story by Melissa West and I loved her writing. Not only are the hero and heroine likeable and relatable, the secondary characters are equally intriguing. They added a lot to the story. Although I would’ve loved to know what was floating around inside Aiden’s head at times, this is a enchanting and very enjoyable read! No Kissing Allowed is one of those stories that once you start reading, it gets under your skin and you can’t stop!
