A man with a prison record has no place around a fresh faced college student. Tell that to Rory Prince. He should stay the hell away from Olive Cunningham. There’s one small problem, though. She won’t stop almost getting killed—and with this too-smart, too-sweet girl holding his heart in her hands, Rory is powerless to do anything but keep saving her.

Homeschooled from a young age, Olive is now out on her own and discovering the world, one milkshake flavor at a time. Until recently, she has experienced life through books. She’s walked in a million sets of shoes while flipping pages—enough to know that Rory gives her once-in-a-lifetime feelings. If only he would stop trying to protect her…from himself.

Mouth to Mouth by Tessa Bailey is exactly what I love about her books-its sweet, its got a growly, grumpy alpha, and a smart, kind heroine! Rory is an ex-con who doesn’t feel he has anything to offer Olive. Olive is a sheltered girl who grew up on the internet (her family had a youtube show) and is spreading her wings.

I thought both Rory and Olive were delightful characters. Olive did kind of annoy me at the end with her actions, but its minor. Both of them are likable enough you can easily look past her dumb behavior for the moment! Rory and his brothers are super close and are working their butts off to get out of debt (their father’s fault) and start their own lives. Olive moved half way across the country to get away from the family that shunned her from their show when she wasn’t as ‘cute’ as her younger siblings. If you want a fairly quick read with a virgin, an ex-con, and a beach setting, this is a perfect pick!

I can’t wait for Rory’s brothers to get a book! Rory’s prison time was the result of defending one of his brothers. There is a strange relationship blooming between the brother and a ‘meathead’ type guy that has me totally intrigued!

About Tessa Bailey

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of nine years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
