I read the proof copy of Kiss the Girl, by USA Today bestselling author, Tara Sivec, at the request of the publisher, St. Martin’s Press. Sivec has created a sweet, sexy, and hilarious, but potty-mouthed romantic comedy.
Any woman who has ever doubted herself and her abilities, who has ever felt less-than, will enjoy seeing the changes in Ariel Waters as she recovers from a demeaning ex-husband, and financial ruin at his hand. Ariel and her two best friends agree to entertain as princesses at a little girl’s birthday party. When they arrive, they find that the party is for adults, not children. They suffer through, and from there springs their hugely successful new business, “The Naughty Princess Club”.
When a millionaire playboy, Eric, comes to her rescue, she is not impressed. Eric, however, is in love, and will do whatever it takes to win the girl, and to get to Kiss the Girl.
I enjoyed this light and easy read. I would have enjoyed it more if the f-word had not appeared multiple times on almost every page. It added nothing to the story – it actually detracted.
What Makes This Book Reviewer Grumpy?
- Misspelled words;
- multiple split infinitives;
- confusing further with farther;
- using “try and…” rather than “try to…”;
- misplacement of the word “only” within sentences;
- using “bring” in place of “take”;
- using singular verbs with plural nouns;
- using “I” where “me” is needed;
- referring to people as “that” rather than “who”.
