Review: The Kiss That Launched 1000 GIFS by Sheralyn Pratt

The Kiss That Launched 1,000 Gifs by Sheralyn Pratt
My Rating: 5 Stars
Source: I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

Description: Each weekday from 2:00-4:00 p.m., Grace and Ashton cohost Battle of the Sexes, a radio program arguing the he-said/she-said issues of the day. Their fiery debates often have listeners wondering if there’s more to their relationship than just talk, even though Grace has been dating Phillip, Mr. Tall, Dark, and Perfect, since long before she ever met Ashton Miller.

Yet when news comes that Battle of the Sexes is on the bubble for cancellation, Grace and Ashton need to step up their efforts to engage their audience to keep the show alive. When a charity organization approaches them and proposes that the two of them kiss for a fund raiser, Grace and Ash agree to kiss for a good cause. A kiss is just a kiss, right?

My Review:  Grace is a beautiful, sassy, Latina woman and Ashton is a laid back, outdoorsy, athlete and their differences are just enough to help them engage in an intriguing banter day after day on their radio program. I absolutely adored the banter! These two are quick thinkers and know just which buttons to push to keep things interesting, without going too far. The subtle attraction felt more like a sizzling chemistry at times and culminated in a kiss for charity. Only a boyfriend stands in the way.

These characters had personality galore and it really showed through the words on each page. I love strong characters who are perfectly imperfect. I really appreciated the supporting characters as well--especially Esme, Grace's best friend, and Megan, Ashton's niece. Both say it like it is and are total spitfires, especially Megan with her wise words and actions that go beyond her years. I felt completely immersed in the story and felt like I was watching it unfold on social media, right along with the rest of the world.

I love a good, clean romance and this one had a dash of spice. I thought it was very cleverly written and I really can't stop thinking about the story, the characters, and what happened. This one is going on my favorites list!

Content: kissing (making out); mention of sleeping with someone in the past, but no details given; discussion about rape in general without details.

About the Author:
Sheralyn's first job was as a karate instructor, which taught her that practice does not make perfect; practice makes habit--good or bad. Martial arts also taught Sheralyn that a master is simply a person who can effortlessly do all the actions a beginner finds difficult or maybe even impossible.

Sheralyn has worked in many fields throughout her life, but her 12 years as a karate instructor have shaped how she does everything, including writing and mentoring. She likes to keep things light and fun, but she's also aware that life is journey and that if you're going to buy a book, your life should better for it.

So, fiction or nonfiction, know that each of Sheralyn's books are designed to take you to a new place. Maybe that book is designed to help you escape for a few hours, or maybe it's a book designed to teach you a new skill. Either way, Sheralyn hopes it's a good way. ;)
