A single kiss can change everything...
In the first novel of the Sweetest Kisses series, Hannah Stark has set her sights on corporate law to assure her a career of paperwork, predictability, and conservative suits. Contracts, finance, and the art of the deal sing to her, while the mess and misery of the courtroom do not. But her daughter needs to eat, so when Hannah is offered a temporary position in a small town firm's domestic relations department, she reluctantly accepts.
Trent Knightley is mightily drawn to his newest associate, though Hannah is as protective of her privacy as she is competent. When their friendship and attraction heat up, Hannah's secrets put her heart and Trent's hopes in double jeopardy.

For a lovely family-centric read on the high-brow side, look no further than A SINGLE KISS by Grace Burrowes.
Hannah Stark is a newly minted attorney ready to take on the world when she's offered a job at Hartman and Whitney, but her excitement quickly turns to fear when they ask her to start off in the domestic relations sector instead of the corporate side that she applied for. With a desperate need to build a secure life for her daughter Grace, Hannah agrees to work under Trenton Knightly...temporarily. Trent is shocked by his reaction to the beautiful but staid attorney and he is dying to get her to let her hair down (preferably while he runs his fingers through it). The more time Hannah spends with the attractive partner, the more she comes to enjoy his company, and when her daughter is threatened, Trent will prove that he'll move heaven and earth to keep them both safe.
A SINGLE KISS is the first book in the Sweetest Kisses series about a family of attorneys and the women who love them. While this definitely wasn't my favorite book, looking at it objectively I believe that its sweet storyline will appeal to a lot of female readers. I personally found it on the boring side, with dialogue that bordered on a bygone era of formalness that wasn't relatable.
The characters were all incredibly intelligent and Ms. Burrowes created verbiage that showed that, especially when it came to lawyerly terminology. I did enjoy watching Hannah's character blossom and come into her own. She began to trust herself, her decisions and her teammates and wound up being a well-rounded character at the end. Trent was sweet and sexy and kinda pushy, but in this case Hannah needed to step out of her comfort zone.
A SINGLE KISS wasn't my kind of romance, but it was decently written and a sweet love story that will likely garner a lot of loyal series fans.
