Contemporary Romance, LGBTQ
On Pride morning, bookish and reserved Rachel musters the courage to talk to her barista crush, only to discover she's not alone in her desires.
Where does an introverted bookish dyke hang out on Pride morning? Her local LGBTQ bookstore, of course. While helping to put together the store's annual float for the parade, Rachel reveals that she has a crush on the barista at the coffee shop next door.
The bookstore gang encourages Rachel to step out of her comfort zone and talk to the barista, even though Rachel is convinced she must have a boyfriend. Much to her surprise, the girl flirts with her and even shows up at the bookstore on her coffee break, where she introduces herself as Mavis. In spite of her shyness, Rachel lays bare that she has had a crush on Mavis for some time and Mavis—to everyone's surprise—wants to know what Rachel is doing after the parade.
Beside herself with disbelief, Rachel skips through the parade. She is so unsure of herself and the new connection with Mavis and she's convinced that Mavis is straight. When Mavis confesses she has never been with a woman, Rachel must face her worst fear—that she was right. But it doesn't take long for Mavis to convince Rachel that she's up for a new experience.
Rachel doesn't want to be an experiment and she has a hard time trusting that Mavis wants more than just a bit of fun on Pride. Can she take the leap of faith so necessary in taking their connection to the next level?

Rachel is celebrating Pride the way it should be! With lots of kisses.
Rachel is working at a friend's bookstore during Pride. She has a major crush on a barista in the coffee shop next door, but every time she goes in there, she only mumbles out her regular order and gets out of there before she can gather the courage to ask the girl out.
Luckily, her barista, Mavis, takes things upon herself to get things started between them. They realize that they've both been crushing on each other for some time.
They share some sweet kisses and hot orgasms together. But some of the language felt stilted, especially during the sex scenes. Also, there was a lot of telling. For example, the author told me that they were having very authentic lesbian sex. Don't tell me it's authentic! Show me. Besides the fact that I thought that statement was a bit odd.
It was just so short. It's hard to get a feeling for any characters in only 20 minutes of reading time. I was never attached to them or particularly cared about their HEA.
A KISS IS A KISS IS A KISS is hot and sweet, but I was looking for more from this romance.
