My life began when I found out it was ending.

One Frenchman. One night. No questions. No names.
The perfect antidote for a stolen future.

Fate though has other plans. This doesn’t feel like a one-night stand, it feels like soulmates for a lifetime.

One night can’t be enough because I think we’re falling in love.

It has to be enough, because how do you tell someone it’s the end when all you want is for it to be the beginning?

Can you learn to live and love, knowing it might never last?

Travel with the characters from London to France via this inspirational, heartwarming, angsty love story from the pen of Anna Bloom.


“Question: What is a one-night stand called when it happens twice? Answer: Fate.”

Every so often, you come across a book that makes you feel so much that by the end of it you’re a sobbing mess. And that’s exactly what The Last Kiss will do to you. The first in a new series by Anna Bloom, The Last Kiss follows Julianna and Henri as they fall in love with each other despite their decision to not let that happen. It’s a beautiful book, it’s also heart-wrenching and somehow that just makes the whole experience of reading it so much sweeter.

Julianna is given the worst kind of news possible on the very same day she meets the man that’s going to change her life. So instead of wallowing like she usually would, Julianna decides to take life by the horns and experience something new. They make a deal – they’ll spend one incredible night together but they won’t exchange names. And that one night is truly explosive, but then they part ways because that’s only it was supposed to be – one night. But when fate keeps tossing them together, it becomes hard to ignore just what’s really happening and slowly they take all the steps towards each other. Names are exchanged, more nights are spent together and it’s all kinds of beautiful.

“You are shrouded in grey, when you should be every colour under the sun.” He presses a soft kiss to my mouth.

“You can make me shine like a rainbow.”

Told in first person, we only get to see Julianna’s side of the story, but it’s emotional and beautiful enough that it keeps you hooked as you read it. Their relationship is so wonderful too, because to meet the love of your life when you’re not looking for them is definitely an incredible thing and a trick that fate is clearly playing on you. And their love story takes us from London to France and back as Julianna and Henri slowly find their way to each other. 

The Last Kiss is definitely an emotionally heavy book, because Julianna is dealing with life altering news and she’s finally falling head over heels without holding back and it’s all falling apart at the same time. I look forward to reading more of Anna Bloom’s books, because if they’re all going to make me feel so much, then I’m totally here for it.

Thanks to Anna Bloom and Wildfire Marketing Solutions for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
