About The Book

From the outside, Lorelai is an ordinary young woman with a normal life. She loves reading, she works at the local cinema and she adores living with her best friend. But she carries a painful burden, something she’s kept hidden for years; whenever she kisses someone on the lips, she sees how they are going to die. But she’s never known if she’s seeing what was always meant to be, or if her kiss is the thing that decides their destiny. And so, she hasn’t kissed anyone since she was sixteen.
Then she meets Grayson. Sweet, clever, funny Grayson. And for the first time in years she yearns for a man’s kiss. But she can’t… or can she? And if she does, should she try to intervene and change what she sees?


My Thoughts

Can you imagine that you could see how your partner dies every time you kiss them?
This is the story of Lorelai, a woman that doesn’t want to have a partner, because everytime she kisses a partner, she can see vividly how they die! So, she decided to keep men apart from her life, trying to not fall in love and never kiss a man again. But then she meets the sweet Grayson, making her decision crumble and hoping for something she doesn’t know if she could handle. What would you do? Kiss him or stay away? 
Even if this is a sweet story, for me it was quite difficult to fall in love with it, I really can’t imagine what it can be like whenever I kiss my partner I’ll see him dying. 
I always love Carrie Hope Fletcher books, but this time I think it was too much, I liked how the story tries to show us that even in the worst situations you can have happiness if you don’t give up. Sadly for me, I don’t think I would be as brave as Lorelai and stay away to kiss anyone ever again!
If you are looking for a different romantic story, with a little bit of fantasy and sadness, this is your book, it has all the ingredients you need to make you cry and smile, believe me. ;)Are you ready for “With This Kiss”?
