Bee Armstrong is used to being the ugly duckling in her family. Her sister is the one who gets all the love and affection, including from her parents. She’s learned to deal with being alone, so when a strange man can’t keep his eyes off her, she’s not prepared for what she feels.
Ragnar Black isn’t a decent man. He makes his money illegally and does whatever it takes to get what he wants. One night he’s walking home after a job and sees a girl so beautiful he can’t believe his eyes. He should walk away and not look back, but she calls to him like nothing ever has before.
Warning: Will Ragnar do every dirty thing in the book to his sweet, innocent Bee? Come on, this is us, and we wouldn’t let you down! Find out just how far he’s willing to go to make her his. Spoiler: it’s all the way!
I’ve been on the roll for Alexa Riley books this month but this was the first one I felt compelled to actually review. Kissing her is ugly duckling story and I just loved it!
This book is a story about Bee. She’s considered ugly and unimportant compared to her sister, Melina who seems to hate her. Bee tried to understand her but it’s not only Melina who made her life difficult. Her parents were strict, overbearing and favorited Melina.
Ragnar isn’t a good man but Bee becomes his world the moment he sees her. There actually isn’t much told about his back story but he grew up alone.
Ragnar and Bee are opposites. He’s a bad guy and she’s a good girl but he saves her from her sheltered world and breaks her free, just like she wanted. I loved how he showed her that she’s not unlovable and deserves everything she wants.
All in all I just love this ugly duckling story. I can relate to live under a sister’s shadow but Melina was just another level of awful sister. Kissing Her is a quick and steamy romance I totally recommend if you want something short to read.
