The Cover: I don’t know but I literally have seen dozens of book covers this summer with shirtless models, not that I’m complaining or find them unattractive, BUT why are there so many?! Seriously? This cover is gorgeous but it doesn’t say Asher to me! Especially considering through Kiss My Ash he seventeen to eighteen years old.
Basics: Kiss My Ash was released on August 9th 2018, published by Leddy Harper and is 288 pages long. Genre wise Kiss My Ash belongs to contemporary romance and age gap romance.
Description: Ash Jenkins was the typical boy next door. Wait, who am I kidding? There was nothing typical about that boy.
He was tall, ripped, and had the voice of a man twice his age. Intelligent, sexy as sin, and barely legal. Sent to live with his dad after getting in some trouble with the law, he was definitely someone I needed to stay away from.
But he had his sights set on me, and he didn’t try to hide it.
Did it still make me a cougar if I was the prey?
Overall thoughts: Kiss My Ash by Leddy Harper is the embodiment of forbidden romance with a modern twist. There has been a lot of age gap/difference romances I’ve been reading lately but Harper really pushed the envelope with Kiss My Ash. I am open to reading about all sorts of different relationships and romances because one, it gets a bit repetitive if I’m reading the same song and dance over and over; and two I really like diversity when it comes to reading. Again, I’ve read age gap romances before but nothing has been so risky since I finished with Kiss My Ash.
Kristy just moved into a new home and neighborhood, she’s setting down roots so her daughter can finish out her high school career in peace. While moving into her house all by herself, she gets help from one of her next door neighbors. A very hot, young look man who is equally attracted to her as she is to him. Problem is, Asher doesn’t turn eighteen for several months. He’s always been into the older crowd than his peers, so naturally he would be attracted to an older woman. Kristy thinks he’s in his twenties and Asher? Well…he just goes with it. They have this incredible connection and chemistry, surely telling her he’s eighteen in a few months wouldn’t ruin everything. There’s no touching and he’s being careful as their relationship grows….until everything blows up.
I love Kristy and Asher! Their attraction and love for each other is very heartwarming and endearing. They want to be together but are dealing with this horrible age gap between them, Asher doesn’t care and poor Kristy is horrified to see hear daughter’s reaction. Did I mention Asher and Kristy’s daughter go to school together? It wouldn’t be a good romance book if it didn’t have drama in it!
I loved Kiss My Ash and Kristy and Asher melted my heart. I also love the risk Leddy Harper takes in each and every one of her books and it is definitely a classic for any forbidden romance lover fan.

About the Author: Leddy Harper had to use her imagination often as a child. She grew up the only girl in a house full of boys. At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped.
She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters. She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females.
The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.
