When Honor Mitchell accidentally nearly has a one-night stand with the one man who’s completely off-limits, she puts it out of her mind. No harm no foul, right? She has a promise to keep—fulfilling her late best friend’s naughty wish list. The only problem is she can’t stop thinking about Bryce Bishop and his scorching-hot kiss.

Bryce knows he should stay away from the beautiful, free-spirited Honor. His trust in women is shot, not to mention she’s his ex’s best friend. But something about her makes him want to help her with crossing things off the wish list, even if it puts him in a no-win situation. Because his assistance might get Honor what she wants, but suddenly being the do-good guy puts his plans—and heart—in serious jeopardy.

Each book in the Kissed in the Sand series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it, My New Book Boyfriend Robin Bielman is an auto buy author for me, and this book just proves it even more. I could not put this book down, a sweet emotional, laugh out loud story of Honor and Bryce finding love. Honor is trying to complete "the list" that her friend left her after she died. Bryce her friend's ex finds the list and wants to help Honor to fulfill the list. Neither are looking for a relationship, but the chemistry is flowing between them. Two things on the list are a one night fling and to fall in love.They both agree to the one night fling but falling in love was not part of it. As Bryce said, " I could breathe you in all day Honor" . Making this relationship work has many obstacles along the way and brings Honor out of her comfort zone at times. I now have a new book boyfriend, Bryce. He is so tender hearted, I too am in love. I highly recommend this book on the journey of falling in love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sweet and sexy story! This sweet and sexy contemporary romance (A Red Hot Bliss title meaning we can expect some sexy times!) is the story of Honor and Bryce. They have a complicated history due to Honor's best friend Payton who was secretly dating Bryce but dumped him when she found out she was sick, subsequently dying and leaving a bucket list for Honor to accomplish. One of the items on the list is to have a one night stand, which Honor almost did with Bryce until realizing who he was at the last moment and averting disaster. Only now, a few months later, they are both involved in a mutual friend's wedding and though the spectre of Payton still lies between them, neither of them can deny that they were attracted to each other before and still are now. Can Bryce convince Honor to leave the past where it belongs and consider a future with him? I really enjoyed this story! Honor is a lovely, friendly woman, determined to do right by her deceased best friend and tackle everything on her bucket list. It's important to her to do this for several reasons, including events in her past that have made her believe she is unable to follow through when things get tough. Accomplishing the goals on the list will help her prove to herself that she can handle commitment and other people's expectations of her. Bryce is a wonderful man - strong, caring, and thoughtful. He too has felt the grief of Payton's passing, though he is beginning to discover that he hadn't really known her well at all. But Honor is someone he definitely wants to know better, and when he finds out about the list, he is determined to help her in any way possible, no strings attached. He wants her to succeed and learn to trust in herself. Bryce comes across as a really nice guy, seeing where Honor needs the most help, such as with her antique store and giving her just the right kind of assistance without taking over. I liked how he wasn't pushy or overbearing, always letting Honor set the pace both in and out of the bedroom. Honor tries hard to fight her attraction to Bryce over a sense of duty and guilt, believing at first that he should be off limits because he belonged to Payton. But the more they get to know each other and the more she sees the kind of solid, trustworthy person he is, the more she realizes that she needs to live her own life to honor her friend. The attraction between them smoulders right from the get go and leads to some steamy, sexy scenes. The secondary characters in the story, in particular Sophie and Zane who featured in the first book in the Kisses In the Sand Series, Keeping Mr. Right Now, and Bryce's colleague Danny added lots of lively banter and humor, and were delightful to see again. Besides the complication of Payton, Honor's younger brother Cooper is a skateboarder that Bryce, as a sports agent, wants to sign on with his agency. This creates some issues for them as Cooper wants his private life separate from his public one and Honor and Bryce getting involved crosses that line. But despite the rocky start they get and the conflicts around them, they do eventually find a very satisfying happy ending. It was a thoroughly enjoyable read and a great addition to the series. I'm looking forward to whomever's story is next (crossing my fingers it will be Danny)! 4.5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful feel good romance! What a beautiful feel good Romance. Honor and Bryce have their own demons to exorcise from their past. Bryce is Honor's deceased best friends ex-boyfriend and they both feel guilty for wanting each other. Even though it feels so right, the guilt is eating Honor alive. They both have different mountains to climb to even come close to living again but she's not sure if the journey is worth betraying her deceased best friend. I've only given you a glimpse of everything that's happening in the story. It's all about forgiveness. Forgiveness to your friends, your past and most of all to yourself. This is a fabulous, heartwarming, feel good romance and one that is worthy of a reread. Robin Bielman really knows how to write a great contemporary romance. I can't wait to see what's next for this amazing author. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
