Kindle Review…. Kissing Lessons (Kissing Creek Book 1) by Stefanie London 📱

Kissing Lessons (Kissing Creek Book 1) by Stefanie London 

Description……

Welcome to Kissing Creek, where everything has a romance-themed pun for a name and love is lurking around every corner…

Audrey Miller doesn’t believe in happily-ever-after, so she is definitely living in the wrong town. But she’s never getting out of Kissing Creek, because playing pseudo-mom for her younger siblings doesn’t leave time for much else. She’ll do anything to make sure they don’t end up stuck like she is, working as a barista in a college town, serving Pink Passion mochas with Chocolate Smooch donuts.

Then Ronan Walsh, a new young professor and walking cliché, right down to the elbow patches on his blazer, steps in for a coffee and into her life. She knows his type—intelligent and charming, yet sweet as a cinnamon roll, the sort of man she’s inevitably attracted to but is always out of her league. So why does someone like him have any interest in a worker bee with no future?

Her bland-as-oatmeal existence has nothing to offer, but Ronan’s temporary teaching position is only a stepping stone on his way to somewhere else. He isn’t here to put down roots, Audrey’s roots are firmly planted—neither of them is looking for love. And maybe that’s just perfect.

But in a small town called Kissing Creek, sometimes love can be impossible to avoid…

My Review…..
I’ve read a few of Stefanie’s books, and they’ve always made me smile. Cute couples, laughs and enough passionate moments to keep me reading. 
Kissing Lessons is the first book in her new series “The Kissing Creek.”
Audrey had to become a mother to her siblings at the young age of 15, her father was still around, but he just fell apart! So she left school and ran the household. She worked hard and forgot about her dreams, she didn’t want the same thing for her siblings, so she pushed and helped them live their dreams. Working two jobs and finding odd jobs around town for extra money, Audrey doesn’t have a lot of spare time, but she goes to night classes at college when she can. 
Ronan had moved back to the states from England so he could be closer to his grandmother after she had a stroke. He took a position at the college in Kissing Creek with only a one-year contract. He isn’t looking looking for a relationship or anything long term, because he doesn’t know where he’s going to be in a years time (he definitely doesn’t want to be here forever) he’s also not really family orientated, he loves his sister and his grandmother, but he just doesn’t believe his mother and her lies! 
He really doesn’t want to be in this dilly little town, but all that goes out of the window when he meets Audrey, she intrigues him, she challenges him (and he’s not had that in a long time) and her quirky manner makes him smile.
The first time they meet is funny, she assumes he’s trying to get a professors discount on his coffee and muffin, then chaos and hilarity ensues. He leaves with a smirk on his face, Audrey is left red faced and ready for a rematch! 
Then it’s game on. He needs to find a question that will stump Audrey, she is just a female version of google. 
There were family members on both sides of the MC’s I just didn’t like. Ronan’s mother (a self absorbed woman was one) his grandmother although funny, spoke her mind, and was a little abrasive with it! Her father put her dreams down at every opportunity (would throw her dead mother at her and guilt her into backing down!) And Audrey’s siblings just took her for granted! No wonder neither MC wanted to find love! Love was painful, love was losing loved ones, no, not for either of them. 
But there is an attraction between them that they just can’t deny, but Ronan wont be trapped here, and Audrey just can’t abandon her family!
The trivia parts were fun, but it became a little too much in places. 
So will Ronan stay and become a small town professor? Can Audrey continue her part time education? Or will it be easier just to walk away? 
I really enjoyed reading it and look forward to the next book in the series.
