from Just a Little Crush BFF He s getting over his own crush on Brinley, so he volunteers to go to Port Lucia and work for his uncle s fishing boat service for the summer There he meets Felicity, a waitress in the small town who s good friends with his cousins Sparks fly and what starts as a summer fling turns into full blown romance happeningafter a few obstacles, of course Ms Pizzitola s writing has appealed to me and I love how her little verse has grown book by book Mason s cousins deserves some love of their own, and I sincerely hope we re getting a book for Isla Felicity s BFF and Colby Mason s cousin Besides the fact that Isla s Latina, I loved the little scenes with her grandmother Felicity may want to escape, but I liked visiting Port Lucia Soft spot for Mason Now Mason was the sweet best friend for Brinley, the guy who didn t get the girl, but to be fair, he was never really in the running I like the fact that Mason realizes that quickly and bonus, can tell the difference between a crush and love when he sees Felicity I ve wanted to see him get his own love, and while she has her issues, I think they do work well together, and their banter about their old married couple status, from the very beginning really establishes their connection He s a stand up guy, knowing that to care for Felicity he doesn t have to protect her from the world She s capable of standing on her own Speaking of Felicity loves her Summer Boys Felicity prefers to hook up not all the way, just fooling around with Summer Boys because it s simple, fun and best of all, over once they leave town She s already had a serious relationship that went wrong, and she wants noof that, thank you very much Unfortunately, Port Lucia is a small town and it seems like all the guys are determined to protect her whether she wants them to or not Felicity When she sees Mason, she realizes how well they click, and it s great Until it freaks her out When I read the first two books, for some reason Mason s friends felt older than nineteen Here, I really noticed it Felicity isn t that far out of high school, and alot of her anxiety felt as if it stemmed from her age and life experience She s determined to control her life and wants to change, but is paralyzed by the thought of it as well She s contradictory and frustrating at times, but she has some measure of self awareness and when she screws up she does stand up Plus, she s not the only one to screw up, since Mason has his own moment Like I said, it felt like their age and maturity level played a part in the conflict It made sense and they acted age appropriate That may or may not be your cuppa, but Ms Pizzitola made it work for me 3 stars I ve enjoyed Ms Pizzitola s Crush series and Mason could be my fave hero Felicity and Mason are the on younger side of new adult, so I d recommend for fans of young new adult romances ARC provided by publisher via netgalley for review [[ Free Book ]] ⇱ Just a Little Kiss ⇰ In the sizzling new novel of Renita Pizzitola s Crush series, Felicity knows that Summer Boys are only good for one thing But what if hooking up with the right guy could lead to a fresh start Like most of the residents of her dead end beach town, Felicity Daniels doesn t know what she wants from her future Instead of college, she s waiting tables at the local grille where she s likely to run into the guy who was the love of her life until one decision changed everything Now as this year s tourist season kicks in to high gear, Felicity realizes that whatever she wants isn t going to be found hereMason Hayes is the quintessential Summer Boy hot, impulsive, and born without strings attached While in town helping with the family fishing charter, he plans to have a little fun and hopefully get over a certain girl He s never had a long term relationship, but when he meets Felicity, he wonders if he s found the girl who could change thatWith her heart still in repair, Felicity s happy to have a distraction like Mason, but her best friend thinks he could also be her ticket out of this town What s the harm in using him to escape than just her boredom After all, he is just a Summer Boy, and they never stick around But after one kiss, Felicity wonders if only one summer with Mason will ever really be enough I became a fan of Renita Pizzitola s writing after reading and loving Just a Little Crush last year The second book in this companion series, Just a Little Flirt, solidified that And now, with Just a Little Kiss, I m convinced that Pizzitola Just Can t Miss At 19, Felicity feels like her life is stalled in her small hometown She yearns forand is also desperate to escape the inevitable run in s with her ex But change doesn t come easy for Felicity To avoid messy entanglements she I became a fan of Renita Pizzitola s writing after reading and loving Just a Little Crush last year The second book in this companion series, Just a Little Flirt,

to escape the inevitable run in s with her ex But change doesn t come easy for Felicity To avoid messy entanglements she keeps things simple no life altering decisions and definitely no relationships When it comes to guys she sticks to the summer boys who are temporary distractions But what if there isout there for her, beyond her small townJust because I was interested in Mason, didn t mean I had to lose myself in the process The rules were in place for a reason To keep myself from getting hurt and avoid hurting others in the process Keep things light, simple, funMason is in town for the summer, helping his uncle on his charter boat It s just the distraction he needs from his own life Getting over his unrequited love for best friend Brinley hasn t been easy but he s ready to move on Meeting Felicity has him considering that a summer fling just might be the real thingIf you think you re going to be able to hide behind some ridiculous rules you have for yourself and never plan to let go, then this is probably a waste of our time My lips returned to her jaw as I slowly made my way to her ear, and my free hand lowered down her thigh Because if there s one thing I can promise you, it s that you re about to lose all controlI loved watching the relationship between Felicity and Mason unfold They both had been hurt in the past but one was willing to take a chance while the other was determined to avoid another possible heartbreak I loved as they slowly found their way and navigated this new relationship It was easy to pull for Felicity and hope for so muchfor her And Mason was completely charming and so patient with Felicity and her doubts and fears I mentioned in review of the two previous books in the series how gifted Pizzitola is with dialogue and it s still evident here I loved the banter between Mason and Felicity and the way they used humor to lighten a mood or get to know each other better I was truly pulling for these two and their road was not without its bumps along the way They both made mistakes and seeing them each hurt because of it was heart breaking Mason and Felicity and their story felt completely realistic and I loved every minute of itBut what I never expected to happen while running away from my problems, was finding my solution My answer My Felicity Because I knew, hands down, without question that there was no one in this worldperfect for me than this girl right herePizzitola writes that kind of New Adult that I love Characters that are never cookie cutter, story lines that are completely believable without unnecessary drama, and sweet swoony romance She strikes the perfect balance between character development, plot and romance I hope this series continues because as long as Renita keeps writing it I ll keep reading it.Just a Little Kiss is the third in the Crush companion series but can easily be read as a stand alone ARC kindly provided by NetGalley and Random House Loveswept in exchange for an honest

I wish there was a.5 somewhere in the rating system because I want to give this book a four and a half stars So This book surprised me on so many levels I had prepared myself not to like this at all and about 24% percent in, I was convinced that I was probably going to end up chucking it in the DNF pile But I forged ahead because it actually was a little interesting Felicity and Mason meet at the beginning of summer, when he comes down to visit family and essentially work with his cousin I wish there was a.5 somewhere in the rating system because I want to give this book a four and a half stars So This book surprised me on so many levels I had prepared myself not to like this at all and about 24% percent in, I was convinced that I was probably going to end up chucking it in the DNF pile But I forged ahead because it actually was a little interesting Felicity and Mason meet at the beginning of summer, when he comes down to visit family and essentially work with his cousins and uncle on their charter boat, where they go fishing nearly every single day Because of a past relationship that haddrama than a Jerry Springer show, Felicity is understandably wary when it comes to relationship In fact, she just doesn t involve herself in one Instead, she chooses to have summer flings with the guys who come down to visit during the summer time she likes to call them her Summer Boys Her insecurity level when it comes to anythingserious than a fling is impressive and it makes my teenage years seem like a cake walk compared to the shit that she thinks about on a daily basis When she meets Mason, there s an instant attraction a chemistry that zings off the chart but due to her insecurity and the fact that half the male population of the town are protective of her and apparently think that she still has some lingering feelings for her ex boyfriend, getting together in any form just seems impossible After some trial and error, they eventually start something, although it s fraught with a lot of misunderstandings, jealousy and some self esteem issues that are unwarranted I really liked the two of them.I especially liked Felicity because in some ways, she reminded me of myself especially her passion for photography that she hadn t really realized until the end Her insecurity issues are not unfounded, however Her ex, Brody, really fucked her over so I understood the uncertainty that she felt about Mason and I understood her hesitance in starting anything with him It was really satisfying to watch her development throughout the book to go from someone who didn t know her worth, to someone who understood that she was special and if no one appreciated that, then it was their loss I loved watching her finally trusting herself with Mason and despite a fall back, she learned to forgive him as well I guess she recognized that he was one of those once in a lifetime deals Mason.Mason, Mason, Mason I adored him I thought he was adorable He was charismatic and absolutely refused to give up on Felicity He struggled through her anxiety problems, reassured her whenever she needed to and didn t push her to do anything that she didn t want to do with him He was pretty perfect But the author also showed that he had his own set of flaws that he was capable of jumping to conclusions and running away with assumptions just as badly as Felicity did and in that regard, I liked him evenbecause he recognized his mistakes immediately and apologized Granted, there was a moment near the end of the book during a really horrible situation where I had to stop reading for a moment because I just wanted to strangle him I even made disgusted noises and growled at the air, which earned me baffled looks from the husband s direction AND I got teary eyed I didn t expect that So yes, this book was a complete surprise Siskel and Ebert give it two thumbs up Just A Little Kiss is the third Renita Pizzitola book I ve read, having read the first two books in the Crush Series Just A Little Crush and Just A Little Flirt I loved the first two books in the series, and part of me expected my luck would change That I d go into Just A Little Kiss and find it didn t hold up against the first two books.I was wrong.I loved Just A Little Kiss Of the three books it was easily my favorite.I m not a big fan of recapping plots of the books I read I know, I know Just A Little Kiss is the third Renita Pizzitola book I ve read, having read the first two books in the Crush Series Just A Little Crush and Just A Little Flirt I loved the first two books in the series, and part of me expected my luck would change That I d go into Just A Little Kiss and find it didn t hold up against the first two books.I was wrong.I loved Just A Little Kiss Of the three books it was easily my favorite.I m not a big fan of recapping plots of the books I read I know, I know, I say this in every review , so I m not going to give a whole lot of detail on the storyline other than It was good Really, really good.Readers of the series will know Mason from Brinley s story He s all kinds of screwed up After all, he s just watched his best friend and crush fall in love with another guy So he skips town for the summer to help put Brinley out of his mind and move on Enter Felicity And when it comes to the screwed up scale, she s right up there with Mason Neither of them expected to fall in love and, that s what made their story great Although, I will admit to squeezing my Kindle a little too hard because one or the other was always getting on my nerves But that was great too.Character development was awesome I admit, I m always worried that an author will fall back on what s comfortable when it comes to character development I mean, it takes work, knowing your story, and getting into the heads of your characters to write them properly Anyone can write the same character over and over, book after book And I was pleasantly surprised although, not really, because I already knew Renita Pizzitola was a talented author that the characters in not only this book, but all three in the series, had different personalities, traits, and issues I really liked that the author wrote a male character that wasn t an ass It was refreshing to read about a nice guy Well, two nice characters, really But not overly sweet just real.And sexual tension Whoa Off the charts Mason will make you melt with his sexy smirks and his famous line Get comfortable because I m going to be here for a while.It s a sweet romance that focuses on hope and love and moving unafraid into the futures, regardless of what happened in your past But don t think it s all gumdrops and sunshine There are two very big communication break downs that the couple have to get over in order to reach the HEA they deserve.So, here s my take Writing style can t go wrong with a Renita Pizzitola book Character development Great Although, I will admit I connected with Mason a tadthan Felicity, but I still enjoyed her character when she wasn t too inside her head Pace a few little hiccups for me here, but not enough to knock a star off my rating Storyline plot Loved it The author didn t fall back on overly done plot lines or try to hid a bad plot beneath a mountain of sex although, trust me, you won t lack for sexual heat between the characters.My Bottom Line Loved it Loved Mason evennow than in the first book Renita Pizzitola has solidified her spot on my bookcase I m not sure if there is another book scheduled in this series, but I hope so But, if not, no worries I ll read just about anything with her name on itAn ARC was received in exchange for my honest review I did not receive any monetary gain, and the opinions presented are mine alone Original review can be found at I

Little Crush and Just Original review can be found at I received an advanced readers copy from Random House Loveswept via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Thank you Having read both of the books in the Crush series before this I was eager to get my hands on Just a Little Kiss which is the third book in the series I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books and was anxious to see where Mason s story would go.For people who have not read Just A Little Crush and Just a Little Flirt, the first books tells Brinley s story and the second one tells her roommate Fallon s story In Just A Little Kiss we get to read Mason s story who is Brinley s best friend The books do not have to be read in order Each one can be read as a stand alone but in my opinion I would read them all because the characters are fabulous.I was hooked right away with this story I remembered really liking Mason and in fact mentioned that in my review for the first book Yes I liked him but I absolutely LOVED him in this book He was completely swoon worthy and I m pretty sure he may even be short listed for the book boyfriend category that I keep in my head His demeanour and sensitivity with Felicity was pretty incredible and the hopeless romantic in me was loving every minute of their attraction and restlessly anticipating the moment they would throw caution to the wind and give in to their desires.As with any new adult book, it wouldn t be complete without the hot and sexy factor Pizzitola delivers on that front but what I actually enjoyed most was the chemistry and interactions outside of the bedroom There was something about the attraction and build up of Mason and Felicity s relationship that I was drawn to Just like Felicity was anticipating the first kiss with Mason, so was I I might have even gotten a little teary eyed a couple of times SighThis book was about letting people in, moving on, letting down your guard and learning from your mistakes It was about two people trying to overcome fears and insecurities in an effort to come together It is filled with complications and obstacles that challenge Mason and Felicity every step of the way.Usually by the time I get to the third book in a series I find that my interest dwindles and the stories get monotonous This is absolutely NOT the case with this series I have enjoyed each one equally for different reasons The characters that Pizzitola creates have something to do with it I think They are all so different but interesting at the same time This was another job well done I loved every minute of it I sense a great story with Isla Is it possible we will get to read her story next Rating 4.5 Stars It s Mason s book Mason thought he was in love with Brinley, thinking that his heart was broken, he went to work for his uncle and cousins in the family fishing charter for the summer He wants to have some fun, and perhaps found someone to med his broken heart You can t help but love Mason, I adored him ever since, and I was glad that he was finally going to have his happy ending I admire his patience and tenacity to stand by Felicity Because being with this girl was a piec Rating 4.5 Stars It s Mason s book Mason thought he was in love with Brinley, thinking that his heart was broken, he went to work for his uncle and cousins in the family fishing charter for the summer He wants to have some fun, and perhaps found someone to med his broken heart You can t help but love Mason, I adored him ever since, and I was glad that he was finally going to have his happy ending I admire his patience and tenacity to stand by Felicity Because being with this girl was a piece of work, a really piece of work but proved to be worth it But his patience has also some limits, and when it did ah, it was something else Something I never thought he was capable of.Heartbreak caused Felicity to build some walls around her heart to protect it From then on, she just placed some silly rules that only summer boys are allowed in her life They re predictable, and there was no way she was going to fall in love with someone in a short amount of time Her rules kept her life stable At first, I thought Felicity was not good for Mason I mean, all she wants was her summer fling She was a lost soul who didn t know what to do with her life She didn t want any help from anyone around her and that was the most frustrating thing of all Nevertheless our heroine does have some redeeming qualities.The chemistry was obviously there it was off the charts The sexual tension was just overwhelming as much as the emotions that were all over the page, how can they be together with that kind of stubbornness Well, if Felicity is a runner, Mason knows how to chase someone relentlessly It took a lot of running, road bumps and twists and turns, but it ended up pretty well This is the third book in the series that just got hotter and better, with a lot of feels Good thing they can be read as stand alone, with relatable characters that will surely win your hearts Review originally posted on my blogPurchase LinksUS BN iTunes KoboFollow me on Twitter Facebook tsu Instagram Complimentary Copy was given in
