After witnessing Makenna’s journey to find herself again, Callie is reminded of her own struggles with love. No, Wes wasn’t always the easy going guy that he is today. He was moody and unpredictable in the worst of ways, and she was certain to call him out on it every chance she got. Looking back, she’s amazed at how much their lives have changed since they met.
Before tragedy shook them to the very core of their lives. Before her dream career began. And before Wes wasn’t a broody jerk with a closet full of personalities.
Yes, just four years ago, everything was different…
Makenna and Shane are just a couple of lovesick college students, and Callie is doing her best to keep up with the demands of her junior year. Life is boring, and she is totally fine with that. But boring flies right out the window the day Makenna cons Callie into helping with Shane’s brother’s birthday party. She expects a gangly pimple-faced teenager, but Wes is far from it. He is temperamental and opinionated, but he is also incredibly hot and thoroughly enjoys pushing her buttons. And she pushes his right back.
Even though their undeniable attraction draws them to one another, Wes is clear with Callie about one thing. Relationships are off limits. Friendship is all he has to offer, unless of course, Callie is willing to add a few benefits to that. He works hard to keep the reasons for his aversion hidden, but secrets have a way of making themselves known sometimes, no matter how deep you bury them.
Two of those secrets hold the key to unlocking Wes’ fears of the ultimate betrayal. And the other secret has Callie falling even deeper than she ever dreamed.
But she’s unsure of one thing . . . is she enough to save him from himself?
Every Kiss the second book in Tasha’s Every life series. In Every Breathe book one follows McKenna and her love life. In the first book you meet McKenna’s best friend Callie. In Every Kiss, the reader is introduced to how Callie and Wes met, this is their story.
I already had a bit of a girl crush on the amazing Tasha Ivey after reading Every Kiss, however this book only added to the little crush I had going on. This book had me from the Prologue. Since the reader already knows that Wes and Callie are married, from the first book and prologue, it is easy to get caught up in the story of how they met. The one thing I loved about this book is that even though I know they end up together in the end, I am baffled at how. It has been a long time since there was a book I read that I couldn’t put down. By couldn’t put down, I mean I was so into this story that I was reading on my Kindle app while cooking dinner because I just had to see what happened next.
There is so much emotion in this story, both Wes and Callie have struggles to overcome, but there is also humor, since both of them are so opinionated and smart asses. The back and forth with these two was great, and they know how to push each other’s buttons.
This is quite possibly my favorite book I have read in a long time! Tasha just has a way with a story, and building characters. I can’t wait to read the third book in this series by Tasha Ivey!

Tasha Ivey is a literature fanatic, whose love for the written word fostered her development into the writer she has become. A lover of an extremely erratic mixture of literature, she has been influenced by authors from Jane Austen and E.M. Forster to Charlaine Harris and Alyson Noel. But her biggest influence and literary hero? Nicholas Sparks. Aside from writing, since she doesn’t have anything other than a shriveled up prune on the left side of her brain, she prefers to spend her time being creative in other ways like painting, cake decorating, and various types of crafts. That is, if the constant voices streaming through her head allow her to stop making up stories for a while. Lucky for her, she has a huge supportive family, including her amazing husband and two kids, who doesn’t complain too much when she hangs out with her characters more than she does with them. Sophie, the dog, however . . . she does complain. A lot.
