No kissing. No touching. And definitely no falling in love...

Armed with her besties, an embarrassing number of shots, and her list of 10 Wild Things To Do Before Adulthood, recent grad Cameron Lawson is partying it up before she starts her dream job at New York's biggest ad agency. Her last task? Hook up with a random guy. And while it's so not her style, the super-sexy guy sitting next to her is definitely game. No names. No details.

At least, that was the plan.

On her first day of work, Cameron discovers her hook-up is none other than Aidan Truitt-her new boss's boss. Talk about failing the "no fraternizing with coworkers" policy on an epic level. Especially when Aidan makes it clear their one night was only the beginning. Falling for him could cost her everything, but sometimes the only way to get what you want is by breaking a few rules...

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.


By SparklesNo Kissing Allowed was a very nice read. It’s the story of Cameron and Aidan (aka UT Guy) who meet and hook up one night after Cam accepted a challenge from her friends.

The awkward morning after, her not having experience with this kind of thing before, includes Cameron being rude to the hot guy who’s name she never learned and basically kicking him out before he can get her number (which he did ask for, mind you).

Well, the coincidence of coincidences, Cameron is starting her new job and you won’t guess who her boss’ boss is… yes! You got it: it’s Aidan, (insert mortified Cameron).

Well, it seems Aidan is so hot, that every girl in the history of the office wanted to get in his pants so there’s a very strict no fraternization rule. And at first, they try to fight their attraction… obviously, they can’t, or there wouldn’t be a story to tell.

So now they start a secret affair because no one at the office can know about it. Unfortunately, this is not the only obstacle for these two, as Aidan is strictly anti-commitment and Cameron has only had serious relationships in the past. Will they make it in the end or will Aidan’s daddy issues and Cameron’s unwillingness to compromise get the better of them?

I had a good time reading this story and I greatly enjoyed it. I’m worried that authors nowadays feel the need to add a slightly kinky sex scene somewhere in the book as if having “just” sex is not enough… yes, I would love to get my hands tied with Aidan’s tie while he has his wicked way with me… it’s not like the scene didn’t fit with the rest of the book.  I’m just finding this kind of trend with these lighter or not explicit romances curious.

I’m very happy I picked up this book by Melissa West and I hope to be adding more of her work to my TBR list.
