There’s not a chance in hell he’ll keep his distance...

I wasn’t supposed to see Levi Pierce ever again. A few months ago, he charmed the pants off me and we spent one incredible night together.

End of story.

Only it wasn’t. Pretty soon everywhere I turn, I see him. Our best friends are dating. My mother mistakenly—and happily—thinks he’s my plus-one to my cousin’s wedding. And he’s the guy I have to work with on the most important job opportunity of my life.

Here’s my problem: I like Levi. I like his killer smile and his dreamboat eyes and definitely the way he makes me feel in bed. But I’ve sworn off relationships. So when the sexual tension reaches epic proportions and we fall back into bed together, I tell myself it’s temporary. When I start to feel more, I tell myself it’s over.

Only Levi isn’t a forget-it kind of guy. When his lips are close to mine and he swears he’s always wanted me, my defenses disappear. But some things in life just aren’t meant to be.

Or are they?

Lips Close to Mine is the second book in Robin Bielman’s New Adult Romance series, Wherever You Go.  This standalone read is full of heart and will leave you swooning.

Harper McKinney and Levi Pierce run in the same circles and know some of the same people. Their moms met at Mommy and Me swim classes.  In fact, from the ages of three to seven, they were inseparable.  They lost contact when they ended up going to different schools.  Now years later, fate has brought them back together.

Through the years, Harper and Levi have been through a lot and carry emotional scars. Harper has convinced herself that love and relationships aren’t for her.  Levi isn’t looking for a relationship either, but he does believe in them and love.  They’re both good people with great personalities and a lot to offer the world and a special someone.

The two reconnect after meeting at a bar and have a one-night stand.  To their surprise, they later discover that their best friends/roommates are dating.  This means that they have to spend time together.  To Harper’s dismay, she discovers that in order to get a job with a non-profit that’s near and dear to her heart, she has to work with Levi on several PSA’s.  This forces them to spend more time together and slowly the wall Harper has hid behind starts to slowly crumble.

There are several reasons to love Lips Close to Mine.  At the top of the list is Levi.  Robin continues to write sweet, dream worthy heroes.  This man is funny and really good at writing his feelings on paper.  Harper is a refreshing surprise.  Her scars truly run deep and her emotional baggage is heartbreaking. I loved watching her move outside of her comfort zone. Harper and Levi’s journey towards love isn’t an easy one.  At times it’s fun, rocky, passionate, and heart-wrenching.  But in the end, you will believe in the power of love and friendship.
