#Review More Than A Kiss by Stacey Joy Netzel

Title: More Than A Kiss
Author: Stacey Joy Netzel
Rating: 4 stars

I picked up this book several times, but every time I started reading it something would pull me away. It's taken me months to dig into this one, but I'm glad I was persistent.

This is the first book I've read by Stacey Joy Netzel, but I doubt it will be my last. I enjoyed all the characters, even the more minor ones. They were all well developed with their own backstory, which helped to support both the hero and the heroine's personalities.

Sophie and Zach were quite a pair. On the outside they looked like polar opposites, but they ended up being more alike than either of them realized. I love the set up for this story. It pulled me in right from the first couple of chapters. These two were both very likable, even when he was teasing her with a nickname she wasn't all that fond of.

If you're looking for a fun beach read, I would definitely recommend More Than A Kiss.


Author Bio

I was born in Wisconsin and grew up in the Crivitz area. My love of reading stemmed from a number of things. Mom always encouraged reading and Dad encouraged work. It wasn’t that Dad didn’t like us reading (me, my two older sisters and younger brother), but he taught us not to be afraid of work. Me, I’d rather be riding my horse, Kaleb, or reading. Dad knew if I couldn’t be found stacking wood, raking leaves, or peeling pine logs for the house we were building, then I was most likely hiding somewhere with a book. (Walter Farley’s Black Stallion books will forever hold a special place in my heart.)

In school, my reading teachers, Mrs. Hutchinson (6th grade) and Mrs. Sherman (8th grade), encouraged me even more. All through high school I wrote stories, though the only one I ever finished was a hundred and eighty page romance about Corey Haim for creative writing class. I still think the only reason I received an A was because Mr. Murray didn’t want to read the whole thing. (I’ve read it since then — I wouldn’t blame him.)

I started seriously pursuing publishing in 2004 and held my first published book in my hands in 2007. Since then, I’ve published over 25 works, including a few novellas and short stories. After years of fitting in my writing while working as a Travel Agent, since 2012 I’ve been blessed to be able to add full-time writer to my list of titles (wife and mom).
