My love is poison. His kiss is mine. The first time he saw me I was shattered glass, and he was a shadow. If I had stayed, he would have just faded away.Its strange how easy it is to tell our stories to a strangers eyes. The truth about Connor Stratford and I had always been a sad tale. Over ten years of chasing, tears, lies, vows, and leaving. Two people who never loved each other at the same time, but couldnt let each other go.Now here I was telling our story over drinks midday in an airport bar with my old diary clutched in my hand. Telling some version of our story, anyway.I left him once with no goodbye. Now I was returning home to give him what he needed to move on.Its important. Its what youre thinking.I knew what his message meant, sent in the middle of the night after I woke from a fever dream. He was finally ready, and so was I. I just needed to finally give him the kiss he begged for. The one that meant goodbye....

Kiss Me Like You Mean It Reviews
Rating a book hardly seems appropriate when you know it's based on the author's real life. Not once while I was reading did I forget that. Such honesty poured into page after page. Of course, the writing was great as I expected it to be. I base a book on how it makes me feel, the way the story and characters infiltrate my mind when I'm forced to set it aside when life calls. I was pretty much raised the same as Connor so I found myself mirroring him. I can't identify with one thing Gwen went thr ...more
I finished this book in one day and really liked it. Even though I’ve not experienced all of the things the main character did I found myself really relating to her and rooting for her happiness. Also, team Connor.
The rawness. I love her writing. Holy mother.
This is between a 4 & 5* for me, but when someone writes about their brutal truth for all the world to see, you applaud
the beautiful bravery they’ve shown and you give them all the stars.
This was unputdownable for me. Loved.
Kiss Me Like You Mean It by JR Rogue
“You can only go to sleep with tear-stained pillows for so long.”
JR Rogue is a new to me author and it was the synopsis that really captured my attention and made me want to read it. I have to say that this author is insanely talented, the way she strings her words together, sentences, paragraphs and pages is exquisite. Lyrical prose that reads like poetry, effortless, emotional and bewitching. This was a book that I couldn’t put down, another ni ...more
This book is so hard to read yet so true. It is a sad but great story about what is true and real in life. I went through so many different emotions while I was reading this book. But so few books to that for me anymore. This was an eye opening book for me but I enjoyed it very much. Great book! I would recommend you giving this book a try and seeing what you think and feel when you finish it. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*
I'm ashamed to admit that I've had this book for weeks and am just now reviewing it. Honestly, I needed to think about it. I needed time to process. Gwen was not an easy person to like and yet I liked her. Why? I just got her. She had been abused. She was depressed. She hated herself. She was ugly, sloppy, and weak (her words, not mine). She sought distance in relationships. She self-sabotaged. She was flawed. And I could relate to her completely. In getting to know Gwen, I felt like I got to kn ...more
“I wondered why humans applied poison straight to their wounds, without batting an eye. I couldn't stomach healing. I rejected the sun, warmth, comfort. I wanted nothing to do with that foreign magic. It couldn't be trusted. Hurt could be trusted.”
There isn’t anything I didn’t love about this novel. I loved the way Jen set up and told the story, the raw truth and emotion of it, and the way she ended it.
“I can’t let good in all the way, not yet. I will rebel against it until I die. I will rebel ...more
2 ⭐⭐ Stars! What a depressing book. The heroine was not likable, the hero deserved better. Was almost a DNF. Nothing felt genuine. The writing style was stilted and choppy. I didn’t like it. ...more
