The Kissing Contract by Amy Andrews

Posted July 14, 2019 by Marsha in Contemporary Romance, Series / 0 Comments

Marshall Dyson wants one thing and one thing only: to raze his grandfather’s island to the ground. Everything is ready to go––except for the freakin’ bunnies! Hundreds of the furry critters hopping about and multiplying before his eyes. And then there’s the American Bunny League, along with one distractingly beautiful veterinarian, taking him to court to save them…

Dr. Augusta “Gus” North can’t believe the grumpy–and annoyingly hot–builder she’s facing in court cares more about demo-ing some cabin than the lives of 200 bunnies. But when the judge orders Marshall to stay on the island and help her rehome the rabbits – the entire month – she knows they’re going to need to lay some ground rules.

Like, for example, absolutely no kissing. Might as well go ahead and get that in writing. Sure it’s on a napkin, but that still counts. 

How hard could it be to keep their hands off each other amidst all the fighting? Surprisingly, harder than wrangling 200 bunnies.

I had such fun with The Kissing Contract.  Enemies to lovers, razing the buildings on a private island to the ground to erase a cruel grandfather’s memory, rebuilding a new future from an embittered past — oh, and bunnies.  Lots and lots of bunnies.  What’s not to enjoy about that?

Marshall and Jeremy Dyson have no earthly reason to have the least bit of respect for their late grandfather’s wishes.  Certainly not after the way he heartbreakingly treated their mother, so selling off his properties and converting his private island in the middle of the lake to make it public was definitely an “in your face grandpa” action.  And it should have been relatively easy — except for those bunnies that have multiplied (as bunnies do) on the island.  They’ll have to be removed but Marshall certainly didn’t expect to have to deal with the American Bunny League to do so, or one beautiful, stubborn, annoying veterinarian along the way.

Dr. Augusta “Gus” North is still dealing over a rather nasty breakup.  She’s also super sensitive over male reactions to her beauty and her body.  She certainly didn’t ask to look as she does, and she is completely tired of people seeing the outside and not noticing the intelligence, and the feelings she holds inside.  So, when she takes Marshall to court over the relocation of hundreds of bunnies Gus not only expects a fight but she expects this man to act like every other male of the species –annoying and unreasonable.  And Marshall doesn’t disappoint, although not for the reasons Gus expects.

There is never a doubt in my mind that with an Amy Andrews title I’m going to have a fun, sexy, and heartfelt time with the couple, and Augusta along with Marshall grabbed my attention along with my emotions from the start.  There is definitely sexual tension between them, but there is also fun bantering, a few misunderstandings as to reasons things were done – but there is also healing going on as well.  My heart broke for Marshall’s mother, as well as for him and his brother at their grandfather’s actions.  Sometimes family can do more harm than the worst enemy.  Watching them work through their differences, fight their attraction as well as they could, and wrangle an island full of adorable, fluffy, and stubborn bunnies was such a fun adventure.  I had a blast, and if you love a good Rom-Com then you’ll want to check out The Kissing Contract.  Now I just have to wait for Jeremy’s story, that one is a story I can’t wait to read.

The release date for The Kissing Contract is July 15, 2019
