I am already a huge fan of Sarra Manning and so I was thrilled to learn that she was releasing It Felt Like A Kiss! The cover is beautiful – I love the colours, the cover alone makes me swoon and I was so excited to start!

Ellie Cohen is someone who seems to have everything in life. She has a great job at an exclusive Mayfair art gallery, she has her friends, and a family who love her. Well, most things are perfect, there is the situation of her famous rock-star father who refuses to acknowledge her, and who Ellie has kept secret, and her bad luck with boyfriends. But when her ex sells a story about her to the press, Ellie suddenly finds herself surrounded by the media and everything about her is scrutinized, leaving Ellie fighting to keep her job and her reputation. Then the handsome and charming David Gold is sent in to manage things….

I LOVED It Felt Like A Kiss! I was drawn in straight away and it was one of those stories that I had to read in one sitting, I just didn’t want to be parted from it.

The novel switches between Ellie in the present day, and Ellie’s mum Ari’s relationship with rockstar Billy Kay. I really enjoyed this as it was fascinating to read about the different stories and I was equally interested in everything that was happening.

I liked that there were many things going on in the novel – Ellie’s mum and dad’s story, Ellie having to deal with the media, as well as the interactions between Ellie and David. I loved Ellie’s journey with David, them getting to know each other was so addictive to read and I really looked forward to their scenes together.

Ellie is a fantastic character, I liked her straight away and when reading about her you can’t help but desperately want everything to go right for her.

Having never read Sarra Manning, I had no expectations and was pleasantly surprised! Ellie Cohen is an immediately likeable character and as a reader it’s pretty easy to fall into step as we watch Ellie living the supposed dream. Everything seems to be going swimmingly. She has a job she loves in a London Art Gallery, a group of loyal friends and is surrounded by her loving family. Her Mum is actually another character that really made this book for me. As a very carefree woman it sometimes feels like the roles have been reversed with Ellie acting as the mother!

Ellie’s two flatmates are also great characters and before long I was swept up in the story. When Ellie breaks up with another dodgy boyfriend she has no idea that she is about to be royally stitched up! Her ex sells her story to the newspaper, and seeing as Ellies’s father is a famous Rock Star (who she has never met); the press have a field day. Ellie’s life changes overnight and we see the introduction of David Gold.

Once Ellie’s story breaks her paternal Father instructs David Gold to go and manage the ‘Media Storm’. Ellie and David absolutely loathe each other and I loved the dynamics from their very first meeting. This book, had some very funny moments in it (the TV show scene was my particular favourite), as well as some more serious undertones. I read the book in just over 2 days and really enjoyed it. The only thing I would say is that is wasn’t the most memorable of books that I have read recently. It was however a book I thoroughly enjoyed and will now add Sarra Manning to my extensive list of authors to read.

By Janet Emson TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 28 May 2014

I received a copy of this book from the publishers via Net Galley, in exchange for an honest review.

Ellie Cohen is a nice girl. She tries to find something nice in everyone, from awkward clients to strangers. She has a string of boyfriends who she has 'fixed', so much so that they have moved on without her so it's safe to say her love life is not the best.

Her famous father is absent from her life and his identity is not public knowledge, which she has no intention of changing. However she's soon uncovered by the paparazzi and her life begins to unfold.

This is a light romance story focusing on Ellie and her absent father's solicitor David. The misunderstandings surrounding Ellie's personal life and how she deals with the aftermath of exposure all ensure that the path of true love doesn't run smooth.

Ellie's story is interspersed with the story of Ari and Billy, her parents, and add another layer to the story. This is an easy to read story with some likeable characters, for example Tess and Lola, Ellie's flat mates. I didn't particularly warm to David at first and I loathed Billy but I believe this is what the author intended so they were well developed in that respect!

I found myself settling down with the book eager to find out what would happen and if and how Ellie would get her revenge, and the man she loved.

A nice, light romantic read.

Firstly I’d like to thank Madeline from Transworld Books for sending me an uncorrected proof copy to read and give an honest review. I’m a big fan of Sarra Manning’s writing (my reviews can be found on my blog) so I was extremely excited to receive her latest adult book and couldn’t wait to get started! When I realised that there were characters from a previous book included in the storyline I was even more excited about it.

The story began in Camden, London 1986 and this was something I hadn’t expected after reading the blurb. Chapter one was also set in Camden but in the present day – it continued to switch between the two dates throughout the book and it didn’t take long for me to figure out the significance of it.

Getting the low-down on Ellie’s dating history made interesting reading and I enjoyed the moment that her flatmates, Tess and Lola, told her in a brutally honest way that she only seems to date ‘lame ducks’. An eventful weekend at Glastonbury was the beginning of Ellie’s nightmare – I really liked Ellie so I found myself feeling incredibly sorry for her as she continuously seemed to get kicked in the teeth.

When David Gold was thrown into the equation I couldn’t wait to see how he and Ellie would manage to work together, especially seeing as they didn’t seem to get on very well. Their banter was so entertaining and I would have loved to have read from David’s perspective because I often found myself wondering what he was thinking.

There were so many great parts of this book but some of my favourite moments included: a penis infestation at the art gallery, an ingenious escape from a hotel, an unexpected guest at a family dinner, a heated argument on the heath and a difficult TV appearance.
