From Publishers Weekly

Set in the heart of Hollywood, Ridgway's latest contemporary romance (after Wish You Were Here) captures the zeitgeist of a culture ruled by bright lights and scandal. Rory Kincaid, who hails from a decadent family of actors, is intent on being sponsored as the Blue party senate candidate and salvaging his tarnished name. His straightlaced political ambitions are threatened, however, when he meets curvy Jilly Skye, an eccentric but compassionate vintage clothes retailer. Although Jilly's purpose in Rory's life is to sell two generations' worth of his family's memorabilia, the two arrange a sham engagement to make Rory look better in the eyes of his party and to satisfy Jilly's growing attraction to her "desert prince." Despite their spurious relationship, Rory and Jilly must fight their strong attraction to each other in order to save themselves from what they believe would be their downfall--his to scandal and hers to love. Rory's stormy relationship with Jilly is a blend of humor and scorching sexual chemistry, and their story is made all the richer by a subplot involving Rory's four-year-old aunt Iris. While readers will appreciate Jilly for her zest for life, it is Rory who truly comes alive in this story as he strives to rid himself of his preoccupations with the past and his image.

This book held several lough-out-loud moments for me, including grinning over the surreal but endearing characters. It's an enjoyable, not too demanding read, perfectly suited for a short vacation from everyday life.

Das Buch hat mich nicht gerade umgehauen, es war OK, da es einige amüsante Stellen hatte. Allerdings fand ich das Ende etwas an den Haaren herbeigezogen, das mag aber auch daran liegen, dass ich mit den Hauptakteuren nicht richtig warm geworden bin. Die Nebengeschichte fand ich stellenweise wesentlich besser.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very nearly a Desert Isle Keeper! 6. Januar 2001
Von Laurie Gold - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I always find it exciting to be swept away by a book I didn't expect much from, and this "forced engagement" romance didn't look promising in the year 2001. But author Christy Ridgway's THIS PERFECT KISS turned out to be the perfect book to kick off a new year of romance reading, and provided not one but two romances to savor.
Millionaire Rory Kincaid will be running for the Senate and has worked his entire life to separate himself from the scandals surrounding his parents and grandparents. Jilly Skye was raised by a grandmother whose daughter was nothing but a scandal; Jilly does not know that love can exist without pain and coercion. When the two meet and are forced into an engagement in order to prevent a new scandal from sullying the Kincaid name, the attraction threatens both Jilly and Rory down to the core.
THIS PERFECT KISS is an intense read. Both Jilly and Rory are fully-fleshed characters filled with internal contradictions. Rory's four year old...Aunt, who acts as catalyst to the story, both for Jilly and Rory and the secondary romance that develops between two other characters, brings both humor and pathos to the book.
I don't grant Desert Isle Keeper status very often - lately only once or twice a year - and this book was on the cusp. It settled on the B+ rather than the A- side because, as good as the story eventually became, it took just a little too long to fully engage me. Still, for readers looking for strong characters, terrific chemistry, and a strong balance between lighter and darker elements, I strongly recommend THIS PERFECT KISS.

3.0 von 5 Sternen An OK Read! 11. Februar 2001
Von Christine Shaw - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
After thoroughly enjoying the author's previous novel "Wish You Were Here", I looked forward to "This Perfect Kiss". I was somewhat disappointed with Christie's latest effort. Although this book had its moments, they were too few. I felt the plot was weak and dragged on with a rushed ending. The main characters, who were adults and supported established careers, were too immature and naive for my taste and I felt the author missed some golden opportunities to write a few scenes around the webcam and Jilly's Victorian underwear. I thought this was an OK read and I would recommend it but felt it was not up to par for this talented author.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A perfect read! 12. Februar 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
THIS PERFECT KISS is a perfect read for those who love witty, wonderful romance. The characters are quirky, charismatic, and just plain fun, and the situtations they find themselves in are equally fun. Further, there's a wonderful secondary plot entailing the hero's 4-year-old aunt that simply warms the heart. THIS PERFECT KISS really is a book not to be missed--a perfect Valentine's Day treat as yummy as chocolate, but not nearly as fattening!

5.0 von 5 Sternen An amusing but semi-serious drama 6. Januar 2001
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Atherton, California software millionaire Rory Kincaid avoids scandal as if it is E-bola after observing the disreputable role models of his father and grandfather. Between the two older Kincaids, there were eleven known marriages while at thirty-two, Rory has stayed single. Still, the tabloids would love a hint of scandal associated with Rory. With the recent death of his grandfather, Rory becomes guardian of his four-year-old aunt.

Rory decides to clean out the family Caidwater mansion by ridding it of old costumes. He hires Jilly Skye, a vintage clothing dealer, to sell the items. However, Jilly arrives in a low cut dress that reveals her "ahems". Immediately attracted to the woman and not just her two puppies, Rory kisses Jilly, which could end his run as the Blue Party's candidate for US Senator.

At times amusing and at other times poignant, THIS PERFECT KISS works because the charcaters and their emotional baggage seem genuine. The story line is fun as Rory struggles with his growing need for Jilly vs. his political ambitions vs. his fear of sharing the genes of his sires. Christie Ridgeway writes an amusing but semi-serious drama that hinges on whether love can help two individuals overcome childhood trauma.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A fun, sparkly, perfect romance book. 4. Februar 2001
Von "avonlea" - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I highly recommend this book if you are looking for fun, romance, and emotion. Jilly's business is vintage clothes. Rory's is software, the Senate, and a legendary acting family. His ward is someone Jilly desperately wants to get close to. Meeting Rory throws her for a loop though. Meeting Jilly ('sexcandy') at a time when he is trying to keep his reputation spotless really flusters Rory. There is also a wonderful secondary romance. Rory's ward is a delight too. All these elements come together to form a very special book. I highly recommend THIS PERFECT KISS.
