Kiss with Blurb
Some people call it puppy love,
But I know the truth.
Even though we were kids, too young to know better,
I knew.
I was absolutely head-over-heels in love with Cody Jamison.
There wasn’t a moment in my life that he wasn’t a part of.
There wasn’t a part of me that didn’t belong to him.
And just as I was about to tell him…
He left.
Left town.
Left me.
Shattering my heart into pieces.
But now, he’s back.
Just like that.
But, we’re no longer those bright-eyed little kids we once were.
He just re-emerged,
Claiming a spot as the lead guitarist in my brother’s band,
As if nothing ever changed.
But it did.
Everything’s different now.
And I won’t let this asshole strum his way back in,
Reclaiming my heart,
Not without an explanation.
He’s going to have to work for it,
For me.
Cody Jamison can’t have me,
Until I have the truth.

I’m uncertain how I feel about Jamison by Niquel.  The book started with CJ (AKA Cody Jamison), Shannon, and Shannon’s brother Ambrose (AKA Dean) as best friends growing up.  I loved how they interacted and thought CJ was so adorable!  Then, the book shifted and I had a hard time comprehending some aspects within the book.  CJ’s family moved suddenly in the middle of the night and stayed away for so many years.  The reasoning behind this did not correlate to CJ starting a band and touring… in my opinion.

I really wanted to like this book, but I had a hard time getting over this.  I love romance stories of childhood friends grow to fall in love. I can see many people enjoying this story line, but for me there were several points that I could not get over.

“Oh my God, Shan, quit being a wuss!”


“I can’t, it’s too high!” I yelled down at my brother, who was safe on the ground. I don’t know why I let him talk me in to doing stupid things like this.

“C’mon, Shanny, just put your foot in the holes and jump when you get to the last one,” CJ egged on.

Anytime he was around and asked me to do something, the fear inside of me went away. “Okay.”

One.
Two.
Three.
“Ouch!”

“Holy crap, are you all right?” My brother asked, as the sky spun behind his and CJ’s heads.
“My head hurts really bad.”

“Dang, I’ll go and get Mom. Can you stay with her, CJ?” He nodded his head, and then helped me sit up. He kept looking at me funny with his eyes; eyes that were the color of chocolate. 
“Why are you looking at me like that?”

“I was looking at the small dots across your face. What are they?”
I placed my hands over my face, and rubbed my cheeks, wishing they would come off. “My mommy calls them ‘freckles’ and I hate them.”
“Why?”
“Because people are always teasing me about them. Mom said I got them from being in the sun too much.” 
“So let’s call them sun kisses! The sun loved your face so much, it left little kisses behind.”
I giggled so hard, that it made my head hurt more. CJ was almost thirteen, like my older brother, but he made me feel fuzzy inside.
