This was such a lovely, funny, sweet Valentine's Day novella by Pandora Pine. I seriously heart this one! Get it? Heart it? Valentine's Day?
Pandora Pine takes us once more to Salem and her Cold Case Psychic series, but this time we get to meet Granger Galloway, lead reporter for Salem's Rainbow Gazette newspaper and the guy in charge of the annual Valentine's Bazaar - an annual fundraiser for the LGBTQ community in Salem. Last year Jude Byrne, the 'town trolly' had raised the most money ever in the bazaar's hottest attraction, it's Kissing Booth, and Granger is determined to beat that record this year except... Jude has bailed and Granger has tried to get _everyone_ to fill the booth, to no avail.
In a fit of desperation Granger clicks on an online ad for Valentine's Inc., an online 'dating' service for people needing a stand in or, in this case, a last minute rent-a-hunk to lock lips with the entire town. Of course, Granger had to put down what his fantasy man would be like since it was asking what he was looking for. Granger wasn't expecting to get his absolute fantasy man though and yet.... cupid was smiling down on him, or maybe cursing him.
Enter Lennox McArthur, a towering redwood, a bonny braw redheaded Scot complete with the kilt and the dreamy burr of an accent. Honestly, Lennox could have stepped off the cover of one of those Highland Romances, or out of the set of Outlander, he was just that perfect. And everybody in Massachusetts seems to think so as well. _Literally_ everyone in Massachusetts because people from all over the state are showing up for their turn at the Kissing Booth. Lennox doesn't just break Jude's record, he smashes it to smithereens with no hope of the man every reclaiming his title.
Of course Granger didn't expect he'd fall head over heels in love with his rent-a-date in the space of three days. Nor did he expect the green eyed monster to make him lose his mind at the number of people kissing HIS highlander. Now if only he has the courage to take his turn in the Kissing Booth's line and get the man of his dreams! View all my reviews
