Summary: (from goodreads) He closed the distance I'd opened up between us and kissed me lightly on the lips. "Maybe we can just be," Kevin whispered.

Charlie Collins doesn't know what to do about Kevin Lazarus, her crush and, awkwardly, her new stepbrother. Things were complicated enough when their parents were only dating and when Kevin was going out with Charlie's best friend, Tess. Now, post-wedding, Charlie and Kevin are crossing paths and crossing lines, and then they have to eat breakfast . . . together.

If only Charlie could get some time away from Kevin and her annoyingly happy and strange step family, she might be able to deal. Yet first she has to make things right with George, her sort-of boyfriend, and Tess, whose trust she broke. But while Charlie struggles to be the perfect friend and daughter, at the end of the day Kevin is the one waiting for her at home. Would it really be so bad if they kissed again?

The follow-up to If We Kiss, Rachel Vail's addictive story of first kisses and heartbreak, Kiss Me Again at long last answers the question of what happens when a crush so off-limits it has to be a fantasy suddenly becomes something very real.

I thought this book was really good and really cute all in one. It was written really well and the way the author wrote the book was amazing because you felt like you were part of the book and that you were experiencing everything the characters went through. It was a very addicting book that I couldn't put down. I was able to finish it in a couple of days because it was a very fast moving book that kept you on your toes and kept you wondering what will happen next. It was like reading somebodies diary or listening to somebodies gossip. I love hearing gossip so that's probably why I loved it so much.

The main character Charlie is a 15 year old freshman in high school. She has a best friend named Tess but Tess doesn't talk to her because Charlie ended up kissing Tess boyfriend named Kevin. Well Charlie ends up developing feelings for Kevin and he also develops feelings for Charlie also. Well things are about to change. Because Charlie and Kevin's parents end up dating and falling in love. Then they end up getting married to each other. So in the end that makes them stepbrother and stepsister. After he moves in and lives down the hall from each other they have to keep fighting their feelings for each other because they know it's wrong because they are family now. Charlie tries to find ways to not be home all the time because when she is home Kevin is also home and she knows how strong their feelings are for each other. So she tries to stay away from him. Charlie ends up dating this guy George because she probably wanted to make Kevin jealous. But Charlie really doesn't want to be with him but she thought if she dated him she wouldn't think about him. Charlie even ends up getting a job at a coffee place so she wasn't ever home. Charlie and Kevin have parents that are almost alike. They hate going to their mothers because she left them and the father had to raise them and Charlie doesn't like going to her dads because he cheated on her mom and he only cares about his other child and his new wife. He wouldn't invite her to Paris either because it cost to much but she is his daughter. Throughout the whole book every corner she goes around or every room that she goes into he is always there. So how can she get over him. Plus Charlie is trying to get use to her mother being married and having new rules in the house. Charlie and her mom always been the only ones in the house and now they have a whole house full. The things they say or the jokes that they do get on Charlies nerves. But all she can ever think about is her and Kevin kissing again. They find ways to kiss so nobody finds out but their friends know. So what does Charlie do about Kevin and does she finally give into her feelings. After reading this story it felt so real because it does happen everyday in families around the world. I never experienced it but have heard stories. I really hope she writes another book with these characters in it again because I would love to see where they are in their lives. I also want to see if they still have feelings for each other and if they gave into those feelings.
