    Not a typical CR heroine - she didn't drool, didn't wet her panties on a regular basis, she had brain [!!!], could still build coherent sentences while being aroused and even during and after good sex!!! Sensational! 😉

    I didn't quite like the plot with her mother, but I could understand why she kept her distance at the beginning.

    Good hero. Total 'boring' - not a manwhore, didn't trash women, he actually respected women and was really good guy.

    When he adopted Wilson - a cute dog with 3 legs - I said yes to his marriage proposal. Unfortunately he didn't ask me at the end, but the heroine 😜.

    Safe. No slut-shaming. Zero OW drama. Tasteful sex-scenes (no begging, no spanking, decent heroine with healthy hormonal level!).

    Enjoyed it a lot! 🤩

    High school teacher Josie Barnes and the school’s football coach Zach Powers have known each other for a while now since they socialize with the same group of friends. They’ve subtly flirted at parties but haven’t gone beyond those interactions. When Josie hands out failing grades to some of his players, Zach initiates their first real one-on-one meeting.

    High school teacher Josie Barnes and the school’s football coach Zach Powers have known each other for a while now since they socialize with the same group of friends. They’ve subtly flirted at parties but haven’t gone beyond those interactions. When Josie hands out failing grades to some of his players, Zach initiates their first real one-on-one meeting. Josie’s sensitive to her students and other teachers seeing them fraternize but they really enjoy each other too much to stay apart.

    One of the reasons I love this series is the strong sense of community found in Hope, Oklahoma. In every book, characters from previous stories are present in meaningful ways with some contribution to the current issues. Josie had a tough childhood so moving here and creating these relationships is more than a lifeline. Her issues were directly tied to her past experiences, clouding her judgment where Zach was concerned. While he also had a disappointing relationship with his family growing up, the impact was completely different and their contrasts were interesting. Their network of friends offered valuable perspectives to Josie and Zach as they navigated their way towards a relationship.

    I liked the story, especially how rescued animals were featured. Not only were Josie and Zach nurturing them, they were also healing the humans’ souls, a very powerful message. The narrator did a good job of capturing Josie (and the other female characters), even though she could be uneven at times, but her male voices were a challenge. I still really enjoyed listening to the story and was just happy to be back in Hope and catching up with everyone from the earlier books. 3.5 stars

    I absolutely adore this series! Jaci Burton has a way with these books and she always puts a smile on my face. In One Perfect Kiss, two teachers find love although, it isn't sunshine and rainbows in the beginning. True love, as shown in this book, takes time, effort, and sometimes a lot more energy than one would want!

    Two-Fer Review - Amanda and Kitty

    Jaci Burton wrote such a sweet and sentimental story with One Perfect Kiss. Even though the story started off a little slow for me, she picked the pace up and had me hooked in the fun tale of the teacher and the coach.

    Zach was relentless throughout the book. He has wanted Josie for a while. She flirts, has a wonderful time but doesn't let on that she may be interested in anything other than being friends. That is, when they are out. When she walks into school, it's a whole other story. Ms. prim and proper, hard-nosed English teacher. But, when she starts benching his star football players, he has no choice but to try to convince her to bring their marks up. He agrees to her terms and they find themselves constantly in each others company both in and out of the classroom.

    Josie can't afford to get involved with the hot football coach. It's bad enough that he is friends with all of her friends but, now his football players are failing and he keeps coming into her classroom to see what he could do to bring their grades up. It's hard enough keeping her thoughts of him out of school, now she's trying to hide her feelings inside as well. But, he's shown that he does care about his students just as much as he does about football. Now, hiding how much she really does want him has become a full-time job.

    When Zach and Josie finally put their cards on the table, it's beautiful, sweet and wonderful. The twists and turns in the book actually made me more interested in the story. It's hard enough for an author to write a true romance but to throw in social issues, a mother that didn't know how much her rejection hurt her daughter and you have an exceptionally written story. Now, besides the romance and the drama, let's mix in a mean cat, a three-legged dog and a blind bunny. So much fun awaits! But, seriously, I truly enjoyed One Perfect Kiss. Jaci Burton has a true talent for writing romance novels that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside and always puts a smile on your face.

    One Perfect Kiss is a heartwarming story of learning to love and trust when both have been elusive. Josie Barnes is new to Hope, Oklahoma and loves her teaching job, her fur babies, and her friends. Hanging out together she’s noticed Zach Powers and is definitely attracted to the high school football coach/history teacher. There’s no denying an attraction between the two of them, but should she act on it?

    Zach Powers does all he can for his players and that means confronting Josie when she places his players on probation. His team is having a really good season and he needs all his players in good academic standing and that means working with Josie. Keeping things professional is necessary but he sure would like to get to know her on a personal level. When she finally gives him the green light, he knew that she would be more than he imagined and the sexual chemistry would be off the charts. When she shows signs that this is only fun for her can he convince her what he feels in his heart when he knows she’s never felt love before?

    One Perfect Kiss has all the elements of a good romance story from the cute pets, witty banter, a flawed heroine, and one understanding hero. It was also good to catch up with the previous couples from earlier books and see where life is taking them. Josie has overcome so much in her life and to see her grow with the help from her friends and introspection, it’s very gratifying. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and its understated romance and wish I could live in Hope, OK.

    I enjoyed

    . The easy, beach kind of romance read. Not over complex, easily followed and an intriguing group of characters that seem to have an affinity for loving animals. You can't go wrong with an animal loving cast.

    That being said, I had a hard time justifying Josie's choices and personality vacillations between mature and educated to irrational. She was burned, had a hard time trusting but the conflicts were internal and self induced which didn't not endear me towards her.

    I’m a bit conflicted with this story. I’ve read one other book in the series before this one so I was a bit familiar with a few of the characters. But it had been a while so I don’t know that I remember Josie and Zach.

    I’m a bit conflicted with this story. I’ve read one other book in the series before this one so I was a bit familiar with a few of the characters. But it had been a while so I don’t know that I remember Josie and Zach.

    So why am I conflicted? A lot of it came from Josie. She seemed locked in the past and uncertain about life in a few scenes and some of the conversation didn’t flow for me. But then in the next chapter she was funny, warm, yet determined to take the lead, which he willingly gave her.

    Another issue was that there were several scenes in the book that were just plain odd. Attending a party you were not really invited to as a third person to someone else’s first date? Umm no.

    Zach, on the other hand, was a great character. Loving, very sexy, kind, and extremely patient with Josie. He knew what he wanted and was willing to go for it. Proud and sweet.

    Overall, the author brought a classic story of love in a small town along with a few internal issues to get over. It was entertaining with a few fiery scenes that bring the heat and finally, a happy ever after.

    A little ho-hum for me. Two high school teachers with a little baggage each go from friends to lovers. A perfectly OK read, but I just didn't feel the passion in this one.

    Probably my least favorite one from a pretty solid series.

    should be that light romance that makes for a perfect, upbeat love story of two souls meant to be together.

    For me, it wasn’t all it could have been. Zach was patient, caring and most definitely willing to do what it took to get Josie to notice him as more than a friend. Josie was like an emotional ping pong ball, warm and flirtatious one minute, doing a complete reversal the next.

    Together, their mental dialogues were almost mirrored words…and actually sounded like they were part of the high school crowd, things were repeated so much. That said, the rest of the characters were delightful and truly gave a sense of continuity to the story! Toss in some furry friends, each with personalities more defined than the main characters and this less than defining romance makes for some good beach or poolside reading.

    I had never read this author’s books, but I liked the synopsis, so figured I would give it a try. Sadly, it wasn’t what I expected.

    Josie and Zach are decent enough characters. They’re both driven, loyal, good people. They’re just insanely boring. I didn’t see any chemistry between them at all and that made some of the cringeworthy scenes even worse. As for secondary characters, I’m assuming everyone else is from the previous books. They’re all either pregnant or just had a baby and it was near

I didn’t see any chemistry between them at all and that made some of the cringeworthy scenes even worse. As for secondary characters, I’m assuming everyone else is from the previous books. They’re all either pregnant or just had a baby and it was near impossible to keep anyone straight.

    Plot wise is where I really struggled. It was all step by step telling, not showing and there isn’t any conflict or build up. It was all so bland and felt very pointless. Oh and there are legit pages of descriptions on what each person is wearing in the scenes.

    Overall, something kept me reading, but I’m not sure what it was. I will not be reading any other books in this series.
