I picked up Emma and Hunter's story on a whim last month and I absolutely loved it. From the start I was enthralled in their magical story. Emma is the type of person you want to be your bff. She's fun and unique and she has charmed all of Pine Cove Island residents. Hunter though he doesn't quite believe she has magic and he is a bit hard headed and determined but sexy and loving as well. If you love a entertaining, quirky contemporary romance with a touch of magic then I highly recommend Don't Call Me Cupcake!

About That Kiss is about to tie with Sweet Little Lies for being my favorite book in this series. Kylie and Joe's chemistry, connection and humor kept the story steady paced and completely fascinating. Kylie has a unique backstory and I love how her past twists in unique ways bringing us in the present mystery she's confronted with. Joe is just swoonworthy though a bit hard headed at times but like always men usually have a bit of that in them no matter how awesome they are. 
If you enjoy a fast paced romance with a touch of suspense I highly recommend checking out About That Kiss and the rest of the Heartbreaker Bay Series.
