500 Kisses by Anyta Sunday
LGBTQ+ Contemporary Romance
Chris and Dylan used to be best friends until one fateful night that everything fell apart. Now they may still be neighbors across the lake but they can’t stand each other. Dylan is focused on saving his kids camp and believes he can’t rely on Chris for any help. Chris is the town playboy who’s mostly apathetic toward the community. I enjoyed that these two spent so much time kissing before jumping into bed because I feel like this is often a neglected form of foreplay in romance novels.
Watching Chris begin to enjoy spending time with the camp kids was melting my heart! I will say I don’t remember exactly how old these characters were but they felt very young. Their level of responsibility makes me think they are late 20s, early 30s but their actions felt more like very early 20s.
2 stars – it was ok
“Five hundred kisses are all it takes to steal a heart.”
Chris Montgomery doesn’t believe it, and he’d know. He’s met— and had— many a man. None of whom he’d want to share five hundred kisses with. If you don’t like someone, you just don’t like them. End of story. No amount of kissing will change that.
Dylan Halsworth doesn’t believe it either. But Chris and his arrogant, always right, dare I be wrong attitude has Dylan challenging him to try it. And who knows, maybe watching his most loathed neighbor suffer through five hundred kisses with the same man is worth it. He’d sit back, crack open a Mountain Dew, and have a good laugh . . .
But . . . shit . . . there is one slight snag in his plan. Chris has chosen Dylan with whom to prove his point . . .
