Love curses don’t exist. At least that’s what Jonas, master of the meaningless hookup, tells himself when a letter warns him he’s an Eros Guardian cursed to endure a test of true love or forever be alone. His levelheaded longtime friend Cora figures it’s a revenge prank by an ex. The way Jonas stamps each girlfriend with a weeklong use-by date, it serves him right.

But when an impulsive kiss between the two friends reveals potential for more, Cora becomes the target of the Groth Maar: demons sent to wipe out the Eros Guardian line. And suddenly the curse becomes dangerously real.

Breaking the curse means Jonas’s biggest challenge yet. Failure guarantees Cora’s death. But success may cost him his own life…and the loss of his carefully guarded heart to the one girl far too sensible to fall for him.

MY RATING: 4/5 STARS

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. 

I want to first start off this review by explaining that I don't prefer fantasy and supernatural aspects in my young adult/new adult stories. It's just not my cup of tea most of the times but I was given the opportunity by En... ...more

I was very kindly sent an ARC of The Third Kiss. This novel was a relative forage into the unknown, not being romantically inclined myself, but what I found within its (digital) pages more than satisfied my taste for a good book. There’s something for everyone in The Third Kiss, with the budding... ...more

This wonderful YA mythology-themed romantic fantasy is an intriguing start to a new series. There is a great blend of romance, humor, and believable dialogue between the characters that kept me turning those pages. I would highly recommend this for fans of Michelle Madow and Bree Despain. ...more

By Richard July 15, 2017

The Third Kiss is a good long way from my comfort zone. YA romance with a healthy dose of mythology. But Kat Colmer would be a great writer in whatver genre she chose. In a story that concerns love, honesty, family history and the old testament too what I loved most is the wonderful humour that i... ...more

Kat Colmer's The Third Kiss has been high on my wish list ever since I first heard about it. Then I saw the cover and I had a case of insta-cover love. Isn't it just gorgeous? I love the purples. Luckily, The Third Kiss turned out to be just as amazing as I had hoped, if not more! Containin... ...more

If you’ve ever wanted more fantasy in adorable contemporary romance novels, this is the book for you. The Third Kiss is an absolute gem and I am so glad I took a chance on it. The story is part romance, part fantasy, and part coming-of-age. The characters stole my heart from page one (okay, maybe... ...more

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

You would think that a love curse and the friends to lovers trope would be over played in the YA world, right? Well you are wrong when it comes to this book. And for the record, the friends to lovers trop... ...more

Gah! How do I write this review without giving things away?

If you ever had a LOVE CURSE and you only have 3 kisses to find your one true love what will you do? I would totally freak out. Anyway this romantic-fantasy book is about LOVE CURSES. The first time I saw it on NetGalley, I didn’t hesitate to check it out and read its synopsis. I was so intrigued... ...more

By Olivia July 26, 2017

“The Third Kiss” is an interesting (but predictable) YA romance that centers around a curse. As it says in the description, we learn that Jonas is an Eros Guardian and has three chances at love (signaled by kisses) to find someone to be with him forever. As you can imagine, the third kiss is the... ...more

The Third Kiss is a fast moving, fun, and delightful read. It's pretty much equal parts romance, mythology, and action. I really enjoyed the contemporary feel of the friends/girl next door turns into something more storyline, mixed with the more supernatural feeling of the Eros Guardian mytholog... ...more

The Third Kiss is beautifully crafted and perfectly executed. This book had me guessing all the way through.

Love cures are long gone with the once upon time stories. Jonas is celebrating his birthday when he receives a strange voodoo type letter. It can't have meaning, can it? After a string of... ...more
