Kiss Her Once for Me
Kiss Her Once for Me | Alison Cochrun
The author of the "swoon-worthy debut" (Harper's Bazaar) The Charm Offensive returns with a festive romantic comedy about a woman who fakes an engagement with her landlord...only to fall for his sister. One year ago, recent Portland transplant Ellie Oliver had her dream job in animation and a Christmas Eve meet-cute with a woman at a bookstore that led her to fall in love over the course of a single night. But after a betrayal the next morning and the loss of her job soon after, she finds herself adrift, alone, and desperate for money. Finding work at a local coffee shop, she's just getting through the days--until Andrew, the shop's landlord, proposes a shocking, drunken plan: a marriage of convenience that will give him his recent inheritance and alleviate Ellie's financial woes and isolation. They make a plan to spend the holidays together at his family cabin to keep up the ruse. But when Andrew introduces his new fiance to his sister, Ellie is shocked to discover it's Jack--the mysterious woman she fell for over the course of one magical Christmas Eve the year before. Now, Ellie must choose between the safety of a fake relationship and the risk of something real. Perfect for fans of Written in the Stars and One Day in December, Kiss Her Once for Me is the queer holiday rom-com that you'll want to cozy up with next to the fire.

Forgot to post this one! It was my last read of 2022 - perfect in the way that it‘s Christmasy and wintery in all the traditional ways. I couldn‘t quite get into it though. I‘m not a huge fan of romance books but I‘ll usually tear thru the sapphic ones… and I mean, I enjoyed parts of it… but halfway thru I just kinda got tired of it, as the plot is pretty predictable. If you‘re a hopeless romantic, go for it!

“We are two queer women, and we're going to use this drive back to the cabin to do what queer women do."
Blood pressure: rising. "And, uh, what's that?"
"We're going to talk about our feelings"
Well. That's worse than I predicted.”

Another book that I read for a book club but this time I was pleasantly surprised. A meet-cute turned love trapezoid! I loved how saucy (even though it was pretty predictable) the plot was. The story was well written and the author had me invested in all of the characters‘ lives — loved the representation in this book! I only didn‘t like how most of the characters problems could have been solved through communication 😅
My review : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (4/5)

AbigailJaneBlog I actually am a bi/demi sexual with GAD who has recently finished their master's degree so I actually found this really validating, but I was frustrated that Ellie did not make good decisions to look after herself. It reminded me to take better care of my mental health. 1mo
peanutnine I thought the queer representation was great. I've noticed that demisexual rep had become a bit more prevalent in LGBTQ fiction lately, which is awesome because I didn't really know much about it before. The author is demi herself so it's really nice to have own voices telling these stories. 1mo
AbigailJaneBlog @peanutnine I didn't know she was demi, nor have I come across it in any other books! If you have some recommendations I'd love to hear them! 1mo
See All 10 Comments
peanutnine @AbigailJaneBlog of course! Her debut The Charm Offensive also has a demi main character (and as much as I liked KHOFM I think Charm was even better). Never Been Kissed by Timothy Janovsky and the Dating Disaster by Saxon James were two good ones I read this past year. Also the Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood and Radio Silence by Alice Oseman have rep 🙂 1mo
MoonWitch94 I had heard of Demi, but this was the first time I have read a character that ID‘ed as such. It was interesting to read a MC with this identity. I‘m sure it was super validating for you @AbigailJaneBlog & I‘m glad the writer is as well. Always nice to add that extra bit of authenticity. 1mo
Clare-Dragonfly I didn‘t read the book (couldn‘t get it from the library in time), but my husband is demisexual so it‘s really nice to hear about demi rep in a romance! 😍 1mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @AbigailJaneBlog it's an m/f pairing, but The Mistletoe Motive by Chloe Liese has a demi heroine, and also autistic and diabetes representation! I really liked it. 1mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian I loved how queer this book felt in all the details of the dialogue, the side characters, and the references. I love when a romance like this is not only queer because of the characters' identities, but like the book's whole worldview! 1mo
AbigailJaneBlog @CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian I'm also autistic and dating a bisexual man, so that sounds great! 😅😂 I also agree with this idea of a queer lense - it did feel very central! 4w
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @AbigailJaneBlog yay! A good read to save for the next holiday season! 4w

AbigailJaneBlog I loved the grandmas and their relationship - definitely my favourites! 1mo
peanutnine The grandmas were great! My favorite character I think was Dylan. I liked how they went for what they wanted and didn't back down heartbroken when they saw Andrew engaged but instead became more determined to win him back. They were also sarcastic and witty and not afraid to say what everyone was thinking which I loved for some comic relief 1mo
AbigailJaneBlog @peanutnine agreed, I loved the idea of a teacher with a knife neck tattoo. 1mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian Oh yeah the grandmas were awesome! I also really liked Ellie's coworker from the cafe who offered her place for Ellie to live. She was very funny! I don't know why I can't remember her name! 1mo

AbigailJaneBlog I actually wasn't a fan of the romance in this book. I loved the friendship and family relationships, but I found the relationship a little... obsessive? I'm not really sure how else to describe it. 1mo
Kenyazero I did! I wasn't sure at first because she seemed pretty hooked for a love at first sight, but it grew on me pretty fast! I also enjoyed the sideplot romance. 1mo
peanutnine I did like the romance. What stood out to me was the "queer lady communication" bit - it was refreshing to see them discussing their feelings instead of holding back. It made the instalove more believable. I also really liked the side plot romance with Andrew and Dylan 1mo
See All 6 Comments
AbigailJaneBlog Totally agree with you folks on the side romance - I was waayyy more invested in Dylan and Andrew! And I think you're right, the "queer lady communication" was refreshing; I just wish there had been more communication outside the queer relationship. 1mo
MoonWitch94 @AbigailJaneBlog I actual completely agree with you. While I appreciated the QLC bc it was nice to see actual communication in a relationship, I was more invested in Andrew & Dylan. And I think “obsessive” is the right label. 1mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian I loved it and didn't find anything off or obsessive about the main romance, although I did appreciate that the subplot romance was also queer. I actually wrote a whole review of this book for Autostraddle because loved it so much, if anyone is interested: https://www.autostraddle.com/in-a-year-full-of-great-sapphic-holiday-romances-ki... 1mo

Extremely adorable and fun to read! After trying and bailing on several Christmas romances this year, I finally found one that was a keeper. Romance can be really hit or miss with me, and I was worried that this one, which combines tropes like crazy, wouldn't fly and I'm super glad I gave it a chance! #LGBTQ #Christmas #TheOneThatGotAway #MarriageStipulation #Snow

Love this author and loved this book 💖 She writes such great characters that are flawed and relatable. The found family aspect of this was just as great as the romance.

Failing doesn't make you a failure / going for what you love is scary but worth the risk / love trapezoids are messy and not advised

Really enjoyed this #lgbtq hooiday romance. Got surprisingly invested in the characters.

Megara I get the title's Christmas song reference, but my first reaction was, "oh! Is this a reference of Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash's song "Girl From The North Country'?" It has a completely different flavor than the holly jolly Christmas lyric! The line is "Remember me to the one who lives there for she once was a true love of mine." 1mo

This was a cute #ownvoices queer romance that worked perfectly for the season, even being at the tail end. My library hold must have hit at the perfect time because for some reason I wasn't feeling the Christmas-ish romance vibe around actual Christmas. But I digress, I love a good flawed character, and while I wasn't nearly as obsessed as I was with Delilah Green, I still found myself rooting for everyone. Would have been a solid #botm pick!

swishandflick PS: my only critique here is that they kinda glossed over that whole "wife" thing that got Ellie in her feelings the first go round. Am I the only one that felt like I was being gaslit into thinking she was "supposed" to take the whole hit for that misunderstanding? ? 1mo
Jadams1776 I agree - the wife thing was a weird. 1mo

Unpopular opinion. Everybody seems to love this book so don‘t read my review☺️Two persons were together for less than 24 hrs and fell deeply in love. One was suffering for this love😳Something happened and during those encounters you will see a lot of cheating and drama. Main character can be annoying. The ending made me think if that relationship is healthy. They play this “honesty game” were words can be so hard. Not for me please.Good things:⬇️

Gissy I liked the unconditional friendship and support Ellie received from Meredith and even by Ari. Representation of demisexual, non-binary and lesbian. I liked also how Jack‘s family supported her. I liked how the author included how to ask the pronouns the person wants to be called. However, I read some comments indicating that the author has misinformation of what is a demisexual person. The cover is so pretty. Read the book mine is unpopular 3⭐️ 1mo

AbigailJaneBlog Yess I also liked the friendship and support but not the romance so much. I am demisexual and some of the parts were good but the obsessive part made me feel a bit icky. Can't wait for discussion this week! 1mo

Not one but two kitties hung out with me while I read this tonight. 💗 Overall I liked this queer holiday romance novel. I think I liked the parts about friendship and found family even more than the romantic parts, but that‘s just me not being that into romance stories/sex scenes. This is my second book by this author (she‘s only written the two) and I liked both, but The Charm Offensive gets the win over this one in my opinion.

Finished this today & it was a solid holiday rom-com. Cute & fun, with diverse characters & a snowy Portland, OR setting (with Powell‘s Books of course) which is always close to my heart. There was a part where the main character‘s lines reminded me of one of my movie rom-com favorites, While You Were Sleeping & then reading the acknowledgements the author said it was once “a poorly fleshed-out, gay WYWS fanfic” & so now I am rewatching it. 😉

This is a fun Christmas LGBTQ2+ romance novel with a bit of depth added as it explores how fear limits a person. I loved the characters and the luxurious cabin in the woods setting. The limiting effects of the fear of failure that the character of Ellie felt read as very believable to me and added to the story. This is the second novel by this author whose worlds I have enjoyed escaping into and I look forward to more by her. 4/5 stars.

A sweet lil‘ queer romance from #botm, Cochrun also manages to add depth and a discussion of failure/fear of failure that feels deeply relevant and provides interesting societal critique in a title that could otherwise feel lacking in plot and originality.
