No kissing. No touching. And definitely no falling in love...

Armed with her besties, an embarrassing number of shots, and her list of 10 Wild Things To Do Before Adulthood, recent grad Cameron Lawson is partying it up before she starts her dream job at New York's biggest ad agency. Her last task? Hook up with a random guy. And while it's so not her style, the super-sexy guy sitting next to her is definitely game. No names. No details.

At least, that was the plan.

On her first day of work, Cameron discovers her hook-up is none other than Aidan Truitt—her new boss's boss. Talk about failing the “no fraternizing with coworkers” policy on an epic level. Especially when Aidan makes it clear their one night was only the beginning. Falling for him could cost her everything, but sometimes the only way to get what you want is by breaking a few rules...

I picked up No Kissing Allowed whilst it was on sale during its release week, after reading some great reviews about it. I am so glad I did because it was a sizzling and light read that I enjoyed right from the start.

Right from the first chapter, I met Cameron at a bar with her friends. They are having a night of fun before beginning their first jobs right out of college. I got a glimpse of Cameron’s competitive nature, and while discussing this kiss she needed to do to accomplish her list, she is overheard by a guy in an OC hat. They flirt, kiss and have fun, and before Cameron knows it, she does something she would not normally do.

Cameron has limited experience when it comes to guys, so it was amusing to see her let her walls down, but when sober, she isn’t sure how to handle things. When she gets to work and sees her hook up there, she is quite shocked, but I liked seeing how professional she was and tried to move past it.

Aidan… well, this guy had all the right moves! He surely swept Cameron off her feet. He struggled a lot at work though, because of how his father raised him, he has no expectations in the future. It was good to see Cameron work her way under his skin, and before long he realised that she would be hard to break away from.

No Kissing Allowed was a sweet read, focused on the growing chemistry Cameron and Aidan have. They may have different family back grounds, but shared a passion for work and each other. It was nice to see Aidan do things he would usually not do, and take Cameron up on her offer. I felt that Cameron jumped to conclusions before discussing things with Aidan, but he was patient enough to work through the issues. It was easy to be swept away in Melissa West’s writing style, and how easy it was to like these characters. I will definitely try more of Melissa’s work in the future!

I have two swoons, a sweet one annd one that made me snort! Enjoy *wink*

“Why can’t I stay away from you?” My breathing slowed as he leaned into my ear. “Your smell, the memory of your warm body under me. It’s all I can do to remain still when I’m around you.” He pulled away a fraction of an inch, his gaze dropping to my lips. “Ask me to stop. Tell me you don’t want this.”
“I can’t.”
“I was afraid you’d say that.”
And then his lips were on mine, one hand behind my head and the other pressed against the small of my back, securing me to him.

“I find myself willing to do a lot of things for you.”
“You said no romance.”
He flashed me a grin. “I’m not being romantic. I’m just trying to get in your pants.”
