#Review: Just One Kiss by Amelia Whitmore | #Refreshing #BeautifulStory | @ameliawhitmore

Just One Kiss
by Amelia Whitmore

He stares at me for a moment, being scrutinized was more than awkward.

I already know I’m not his type. Guys like him go out with petite cheerleaders with tiny waists.
I am definitely not that. I clear my throat, …. monkey out to him.
He blinks and his smile returns before he takes the animal. “Thanks.” His voice gives me goose bumps over my entire body.
“I’m Brayden, by the way.” he leans forward to rest his arms on the counter-top.
“You’re welcome,” I murmur.
I didn't expect him to talk to me.

DISCLAIMER: I own this book, but received it through a Kindle Scout Nomination. It is a WINNER! I was going to have this review posted a LONG TIME AGO, but ended up postponing.

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars.
This book is so refreshing. I would say it is for all you girls out there who have trouble seeing your beauty because people are either putting you down and making you feel like SH*T, or because you think your body should be different. This book follows a girl who is not you average "tiny waist" and brings you on a journey to knowing true beauty. I love how the author brings in unconditional love as well as hesitation and doubt. A bittersweet plot with values and emotion that some people seem to forget. 

Brayden should be a real person, and I know I say that A LOT about so many book characters, but this time I am DAMN serious. The way he works so hard to earn Anna's trust and prove to her that he is not playing some kind of sick joke. Her insecurities are experienced by girls everywhere and it is so easy to relate to because we all have them. I think the worse part about this was knowing Anna's family had been part of the reason she is so insecure. What kind of family does that!?

We mainly follow Anna's perspective, but when we least expect it, we get to see into Brayden's mind and ohmigosh! I wanted to cry! CORRECTION: I did cry, A LOT! LITERALLY, you would expect this to be just another cliché, but I tell you right now that you could never be more wrong. The plot has so many twists and turns, and truly is refreshing. It seems there are so many really great refreshing plots popping up out of nowhere and this is one of them. I highly recommend you pick this one up, because it is so good. Perfect for when you are feeling heartbroken or down in the dumps. It definitely lifts your spirits.
