A good first novel, but there were flawsBy Tammy SmithWell, I am a fan of the happily ever after, so I thought, let's give it a whirl. I downloaded a sample and it was enough to peak my interest. The action doesn't really get going, though, until the school carnival. Elle, as she is known, is best friends with Lee. They do everything together. He even helps her out with her fashion statement. He seems like a great guy and I


like him instantly. It's refreshing to see a girl and boy be able to have a deep friendship that doesn't evolve into a romantic one. He is fiercely protective of her as she is with him. They are a packaged deal. Lee has had girlfriends, but they inevitably break up with him because of his close relationship with Elle. Elle has never had a boyfriend, but she has had a crush on Lee's older brother Noah. Of course, Lee knows all about that, but he thought that Elle had gotten over her crush. And so did she except that Noah has been acting a little different around her. He has also know her since they were young and he is also fiercely protective of her. The trouble with Noah, though, is that Noah is trouble. So much so, that Elle refers to him as a violence junkie because he is always getting in fights. Elle and Lee are on the Student Council and they have to come up with an idea for a booth for the school carnival. They decide to run a kissing booth. They get some girls and some boys lined up to work the booth and everything seems to be going as planned. Some of the girls in school keep badgering Elle, though, about Noah. Is he going to work the booth? As a favor to Elle? If not, will he at least stop by? They want her to persuade him, but working at the booth or even stopping by is the farthest thing on Noah's mind. So, it is surprising when he stops by the booth. Elle is tricked into having to man the booth and she, naturally, gets Noah as a customer, so she gets her first kiss. And that's where the trouble starts. After that, Elle and Noah hook up and end up having a relationship behind every one's back. Why you ask? Because Lee would not approve and Elle doesn't want to hurt her best friend or lose him, but she doesn't want to lose Noah either. While I did enjoy the story, I had some issues with it and the characters. I think perhaps I had a hard time relating.*Noah has been like a guard dog when it comes to Elle. She has never had a date and there is a reason for it. Noah basically got the word out that if anyone comes near Elle, he'll beat the crap out of them. When Elle finds out she goes ballistic. He is constantly telling her what to do, how to dress and how to act so as not to encourage the male folk at school and perhaps lead them on where they might try something with her. She is very nave.*Elle is attracted to Noah, but doesn't feel like she can tell anyone about their relationship. People won't approve. Honey, if you have to go sneaking around just to see the guy, you probably shouldn't.*When their relationship is exposed, all the blame is laid at Noah's feet, but Elle is treated as the victim. Hey, she was the one sneaking around and lying to everyone, not Noah. The fact that he was the one put at fault for everything really ticked me off. Oh, he's not blameless, but as they say, and I hate the phrase, it takes two to tango.*Lee, while seeming to be the perfect best friend proves himself to be unsupportive of her relationship with his brother. So just because someone does something you don't like you decide to cut them lose? I feel he should try to be more understanding. He is in every other way. So about half way through the book, I put it on hold, but decided to go back and finish it. Even though I couldn't really connect with the characters on a personal level, it still was enjoyable to read and I believe it is a worthwhile endeavor. I'm not sure it is a book I would read over and over again, but I am glad that I put in the time to read the story through to the end. Does she get her happy ending? Maybe, but you'll have to read it to find out.0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. PerfectionBy SamanthaThis book was truly amazing. Not overly dramatic or unrealistic, and just a all around "cute" book. All the characters are interesting and complex. The relationships between the lead female Elle an her best friend Lee is hilarious and so entertaining.You will find yourself squealing for the couple in the book and rooting for them. I read this book in a day and a half and I really wish there was more to come. You really get into the story. I promise you will find yourself laughing out loud.Another thing I really enjoyed was Noah. He wasn't your typical bad boy, or perfect guy. He had a little bit of everything and he was a complex character.STRONGLY ENCOURAGED!!!!0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Ah, young romance!By ylime85I found the story of Beth Reekles intriguing and I had to read her first book.For a young girl writing a love story that doesn't involve crazy vampires or werewolves, I am impressed. It is a great story of high school love. Even though I am very far from being in high school, I still love a good romance and this story brought me back to my days of dating and being with my friends. It is a fun, quick, and easy read.I would recommend Reekles' book to anyone wanting to read some YA fiction, and follow her career by reading her newer releases also. A cool, sexy romance novel written by seventeen-year-old British sensation Beth Reekles.Meet Rochelle Elle Evans: pretty, popularand never been kissed. Meet Noah Flynn: badass, volatileand a total player.When Elle decides to run a kissing booth at her school's Spring Carnival, she locks lips with Noah and her life is turned upside down. Her head says to keep away, but her heart wants to draw closer. This romance seems far from a fairy tale.Is Elle headed for heartbreak or will she get her happily ever after? From School Library JournalGr 9 Up-Elle and Lee have the perfect coed relationship: a best friend to shop with, stand up for you when others put you down, finish your sentences, and never ever-even for the slightest second-consider crossing the line between friendship and romance. Then Elle falls for Lee's older brother, and their friendship is put to the ultimate test. Kissing Booth is both predictable and deeply implausible. These kids have drunken parties, sleepovers at one another's houses without calling home, and sex within days of starting a relationship, and seem to wear the least amount of clothing possible at all times. Teens are likely to be turned off by this book as it paints them as irresponsible, unintelligent, and emotionally stunted on nearly every page. Simply put, today's young adults deserve a little more credit. The pacing of the novel leaves a lot to be desired, as there are several instances in which a plotline


absorbs 30 to 40 pages of rising action only to fizzle in two to three anticlimactic pages. The poor writing and flawed characters can be forgiven, but the glorification of a controlling boyfriend as the ideal male is both insulting to women and a dangerous message to be sending girls.-Jennifer Furuyama, Pendleton Public Library, OR(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.From BooklistElle, the classic girl next door, actually lives a 10-minute walk away from her best friend Lees house. Together they plan a student councilsponsored kissing booth for the upcoming school fair. Theres nothing romantic about her relationship with Lee, and its just as well, because his older brother, Noah, is hot stuff. Everyone knows it, and try as Elle might to get Noah to participate in the booth, he refuses. Little does she know, he wont do it because the only kisses he wants to receive are from her. Seventeen-year-old debut author Reekles makes quick work of getting her couple together, and the rest is all blistering smooches and sneaking around. Some aspects of this romance are problematic. The heroine is fully aware of the heros hotheaded nature, and regards his possessive-to-the-point-ofviolent behavior (though never toward her, we are repeatedly assured) as a sexy quirk of his personality. However, this work is nothing if not a frilly flight of fancy, coated with the finest in cavity-inducing sugar. Pucker up. HIGHDEMAND BACKSTORY: Teenage author?
