Who do you turn to when things go wrong?

Your best friend. Obviously.

Sephy King’s worked flat-out to make her new lingerie business a success, only there’s a tiny snag – the marketing photos for the launch party are a disaster.

Luke Jackson will help her, won’t he? They just need to strip off, model gorgeous, sexy underwear together and take more photos! So what if the stunning body he’s been hiding makes Sephy’s eyes pop out? And when he holds her, she suddenly wishes they were in her bedroom…alone? He’s her best friend.

Then Luke asks Sephy for a return favour: to pose as his fake fiancĂ©e to get his parents temporarily off his back. It’s a risky strategy – but she’s sure she can pull it off.

Until he kisses her…

It's In His Kiss is a very enjoyable romance, which is high in sexual tension, and had me really wanting to Sephy, so that I could have Luke Jackson in my life too. Luke is a gorgeous video game designer, that doesn't look like a nerd, and is good friends with Sephy. 

However things start to get heated between them when Sephy asks Luke if he could help with a photo shoot, for the new lingerie line she is setting up, and Luke agrees so long as she agreed to be his fake fiancee when his parents are in town. 

Given their base reactions the first time sex was mentioned - in fact the first line of the book features a misunderstood proposition about selling sex, it's clear to the reader that their will be fireworks between the pair before long - and very enjoyable it was too. 

It is very clear that Luke cares deeply for Sephy and is watching out not just for her, but her five year old daughter, Daisy, too. Daisy is a little star in this book, and she loves performing weddings between her toys, and just seems like a well rounded child. 

There are some scenes where Sephy is modelling her own lingerie where I think a fire could have been lit from the heat coming from the pair, and they weren't even doing anything sexual at that point. I would have loved to see the photos from that shoot, as they sounded brilliant. 

Sephy has a tricky relationship with her family, and its due to that she doesn't always make the best decisions, and fights against what is clearly going to happen with Luke. 

I loved every minute of It's In His Kiss, even if the title did have me singing a sony lyric over and over again, and although its the first book I have read by Eve Devon, it certainly won't be the last. A very fun book, that was a very quick read, and definitely up to the normal standard of the romances you expect to see published by Harper Impulse. 

Thank you to Netgalley and Harper Impulse for this review copy. This was my honest opinion.
