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...
At A Glance
A good but average new adult read.
I didn’t want to put No Kissing Allowed down. Something about it just drew me. I think it’s because I really got into the characters. Cameron had an inspiring passion for her job in advertising. I felt her tenacity and drive to succeed with every page. Aidan was her perfect counterpart. He shared Cameron’s passion and he encouraged her to always do better, to always strive for perfection. I would love a boss like that. They worked well together and it was inevitable that their love for advertising turned into a love for each other.
Their struggles with trying to keep their relationship a secret made me freaking nervous. I am so not adventurous in that way. I am such a straight shooter, so secrets that can pretty much ruin your career freak me out!! I loved how they start out as casual but Cameron starts to develop feelings. It’s only natural. Aidan fights his feeling because of his past, but these two are prefect for each other.
Cameron was a great narrator. Melissa really brought her characters to life with her writing. The characters are what kept me reading.
Usually I don’t mind the similarities that a lot of new adult romances have, but this time the predictability of No Kissing Allowed annoyed me. I knew exactly how it was going to end, so I felt like I was just reading it to read it, not to love it.
The chemistry between Cameron and Aidan is undeniable. They were on fire together and the sex was hot but not super detailed. It worked.
This may be similar to other stories out there, but I still really enjoyed it. I just wish there was something a little more unique thrown in there, but in the end I would still recommend it.
My gaze locked on his, my heartbeat erratic for reasons that had nothing to do with exercise. “I’m sorry for how I acted the day after we were together,” I said, my voice low. “For kicking you out and saying you were a twenty-eightyear-old without a job. That wasn’t fair.”
The corners of his mouth twitched. “You didn’t say I was a twenty-eight-year-old without a job.”
“Oh. I must have just thought it.”
