There will be a thousand kisses in a lifetime but only a handful trapped forever in your heart. This Valentine's day, join The Story of a Kiss anthology as we take you into the lives of thirteen couples. From a very first kiss of a high-school prom queen, to a kiss that travels the width of time. Kisses of redemption, heartache, discovery, and so much more.

Thirteen authors.

Thirteen kisses you'll never forget.

Taylor Sullivan- Never Regret
At twenty-four, Margaret Andrews is still a virgin and sick of it. After a year on the top dating site in America, and a late night episode of HUNG on HBO, she's decided to take matters into her own hands and hires a professional.

Kelly Lincoln- Maybe now
When Hunter finally reveals his feelings for his best friend, Ava, their moment is destroyed by a tragedy. Now adults, a chance meeting could be the perfect opportunity for a kiss ten years in the making.

Calista and Colin shared a sizzling kiss…one she couldn’t forget and one he didn’t remember. When their paths cross again, an innocent weekend in paradise becomes unforgettable.

Sha Renée- Forbidden Kisses
Ethan is a Navy Officer. Layla is Enlisted. According to rules, any personal relationship between them is prohibited. But can military regulations separate lovers who are destined to be together?

Leslie Kung- At Long Last
Janny and Tom grew up together, but right before their friendship could turn into a budding romance, life and gravity pulled them apart. When the friends reconnected, their chemistry was undeniable--but tragedy put distance between them again. Sometimes it takes a lifetime to finally fall in love.

Emma Marie Leigh- Wrong time
Jo Stevens is an archaeology graduate student on the opportunity of a lifetime- an excavation in Pompeii. When her group discovers a basement, everything Jo knows is rocked. Rules are broken. Lines are crossed. Jo unearths everything she's ever wanted. She's just in the wrong time.

Louisa Blackwood- Can’t Let Go
Josephine “Joe” Burke has been running since the night her mother died, choosing solitude over dreams. Forced to return to her hometown and her old flame, she can feel her defenses crumbling. Can she let go of the haunting history holding her back?

Polly J. Brown- Ever Be
Evangeline’s life revolved around the water until she nearly drowned. Six weeks later, she returns to the beach to confront her fears, and Gregory Owen, the surfer who saved her life.

Jaye Cox- Love in Photographs
When her heart remembers but her head doesn't, will one photograph change everything? Claire didn't need her memories when everything within her knew she loved him.

At nineteen, Jasper, the love of Faith’s life, shattered her heart. Now, ten years later, they’re forced together once more. Can she hold onto the last few remaining pieces of her heart?

This Anthology has a little bit of everything. You have a broad range of fantastic characters, mechanics, amnesiac, Navy, best friends, College, virgin, near drowning and the list goes on.

Key highlights for me were:

Jody Pardo- Left Swipe Chronicles, a laugh a minute.
Jaye Cox- Love in Photographs , the story of an amnesiac.
Cherry Shephard- Precious, the woes of being a virgin.

Having said that all the books were fantastic and I cannot put them all in here. Sorry.

It's a series that you just can't put down until you finish the book.

HASH(0xba459aa4) out of 5 stars Must get through.... One. More. Story... Can't put it down 20 January 2016
By Anna B - Published on Amazon.com
This is a wonderful collection of romance stories with something for everyone. I really wish some of these were longer as I could see how the stories would be so amazing with more details. I do not usually gravitate toward novella type books (much less short stories) but these grabbed my attention and held on. I loved that I could get through a story in one sitting.

There a certain sense of satisfaction that I got from getting to the end of a good story quickly, but at the same time it left me wanting more. Many book lovers will know this feeling all too well. That sense of completion can also feel like a loss at the end. I opened the book for the last time and thought I was halfway through, only to realize I got through it so quickly I hardly had time to savor it. I'm just glad I can read it again.

HASH(0xba459a74) out of 5 stars Fabulous Anthology 18 January 2016
By Janiegirl - Published on Amazon.com
I am a prolific reader and I really enjoy a good romance. I typically am not a short story fan because I like to really invest myself in the characters.

With that being said, this anthology was totally worth the read. There were so many amazing stories contained in here. I loved that while they were all united by the kiss theme, several different genres were represented. There is something for everyone in this book. I found a few new authors that I have added to my "to read" list. You can't ask for better than that. Enjoying a good book, and finding more books that you will enjoy. I completely recommend Story of a Kiss!

HASH(0xb151930c) out of 5 stars The SOAK anthology is a GREAT collection of short stories 7 January 2016
By Teresa K. - Published on Amazon.com
The SOAK anthology is a GREAT collection of short stories. Reading anthologies such as these are a wonderful way to meet and discover new authors that I may have never read before. Jody Pardo's Left Swipe Chronicles was definitely hands down my favorite story in the collection. I also really enjoyed Never Regret by Taylor Sullivan and Wrong Time by Emma Marie Leigh. I would highly recommend this book if you are looking to read short stories by a diverse group of authors.

HASH(0xb151918c) out of 5 stars A breathtaking collection of unforgettable kisses 12 February 2016
By Liz Gavin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The good thing about a collection of short stories is that there’s all kinds of stories in it. The bad thing about a collection of short stories is that there’s all kinds of stories in it. I mean you can choose the type of read you prefer and ignore the ones you don’t like. That’s good. On the other hand, you can buy a book with nine hundred pages and end up reading about a third of it. That’s NOT the case with SOAK. You’ll want to read them all. Moreover, you’ll want to read more of each one of these lovely, heart-warming, and sometimes plainly steamy stories. Another rarity with anthologies is that SOAK delivers what it promises – thirteen great stories and ‘thirteen kisses you’ll never forget’.
It would be a very close race if I were to name a favorite story among these thirteen because the collection is very eclectic. You’ll find first kisses, lost loves, and even time travel. But the story that stuck longer with me was Crazy Beautiful Kisses. Not only because Colin Williams is g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s and perfect and my newest book boyfriend but in fact because Kathryn L. James does a great job at tackling such a sensitive issue with grace and delicacy. No spoilers. Also because of the way she builds the story and sets the two main characters as old friends was very clever. It made the couple’s feelings seem more real and believable. Again I’m being deliberately vague in order to avoid spoilers.
Bottom line here is – these unforgettable kisses will take your breath away and leave you wanting more. After all, is that what unforgettable kisses are all about?
