“Be bald. Be beautiful. Whatever you want. Just kiss me…”


Town veterinarian and former class nerd, Emma Glass has made a comfortable life for herself. A life turned upside down when her high school crush, Santana Dark, returns to Star Canyon.

Santana has finished his tour as a Navy SEAL and had encountered his fair share of darkness while abroad. A darkness only made complicated by the revelation of his father’s will. With his life spiraling out of control, Santana clings to the one ray of light keeping his grounded, Emma, the class nerd he kissed on a dare and hasn’t forgotten since.

Quick Byte:

Burned by a Kiss is a sweet, contemporary romance full of interesting characters. The reader finds themselves immersed in the richness of Star Canyon, soaking up all the small town feel you’d expect from such a tightly knit community. I only wish we got to see more interaction between Santana and Emma alone, without the addition of background characters.

This was my first audiobook narrated by Emily Cauldwell and I thoroughly enjoyed her performance. She didn’t try to do too much and made point of view changes with ease.

Overall, I enjoyed Burned by a Kiss and can’t wait to see what else Tina Leonard has in store for the folks of Star Canyon.
