Goodnight Kisses Book Review

GoodnightkissestourbannerJPEG cover for Goodnight KissesFearing she carries her mother’s curse of marriage, nineteen-year-old Eleanor Mackenna swore never to vow herself into matrimonial bondage. Nuptials aren’t needed where true love is concerned. A concept she is sure a man like McCrea Coldiron would agree with. The town gossip has him pegged as a heart breaker, but Eleanor knows a different side to McCrea. And years of loving him without seeing his affection returned has made her desperate enough to ask him for advice on seducing a man. ??

McCrea isn’t proud of his reputation as a brawler and a womanizer. As a teenager the rumors were funny, now they may cost him the land he has worked so hard for. Chatty little Eleanor Mackenna has been chasing his spurs for years and ignoring her was easy to do until she grew up. A beautiful face and curves in all the right places made her hard to resist, and when his granddad lays down an ultimatum to make her his wife, McCrea

My Thoughts:

This was a quick read as it is a novella and only 29000 words. You are quickly drawn into the story and don’t want to put it down until the end.

Eleanor also known as El has had a crush on her neighbor McCrea for as long as she could remember. She finally gets up the nerve to make a move on him.

Will her night with him be all that she has dreamed of? Or will it end in disaster?

I found myself yelling (internally) at McCrea so many times. He tries to act standoffish, acting like he is not the marrying kind. There are soft sweet sides to him though.
This book is part of a series and it ends with you practically screaming, begging for more immediately. I can’t wait to read the next installment and see what the future holds for these two.


Author Head Shot for Wilhelmina StolenI’m a country girl, born in Tennessee and raised in Kentucky. I’m a roamer, but always come home because I love the small town atmosphere. It’s who I am. Life in my little corner of the world consists of long winter nights curled up by the fire, cheering on my favorite football teams in the fall, enduring March Madness in the spring and walking barefoot through my garden with a cold jar of sweet tea in the summer – fireflies at sunset accompanied by a serenade of crickets and frogs, and lazy summer nights in the porch swing with my beau.

When I’m not writing, I’m traveling, reading or finding a million other ways to express my creativity. My tastes in music range from classical to rock. I’m passionate about history, art and helping others find the courage to express themselves.
