[ARC REVIEW] “Kiss Me Forever” (Blairwood University #5.5) By: Anna B. Doe

“Kiss Me Forever,” the newest addition to the Blairwood University series! The friend group (or at least, most of them) are off to a beach vacation with a surprise wedding, and it’s such a sweet story!

What is “Kiss Me Forever” by Anna B. Doe about?

Life is changing fast for some of Blairwood’s hottest football players. With just two more months until the end of their junior year, Hayden, Nixon, and their friends decide to spend their spring break in Hawaii and enjoy the last moments they have as college students. Their lives might soon change forever, but the bond they made at Blairwood will last a lifetime and so will their love. But when one of the boys decides to propose on vacation, the group will find themselves organizing an impromptu wedding.

Kiss Me Forever is a novella in the Blairwood University series. Told from different points of view, you’ll get to see your favorite characters and find out what the future holds for them. To fully enjoy this novella, Kiss Me Forever has to be read in series order.

Rating: 4/5 Stars


Although I haven’t read Anna’s book “Underwater,” I know that there are multiple characters from it that appear in this novella – I think that’s such a cool crossover! The last book of Anna’s that I read was “Kiss to Belong,” which the novella is mentioned in. (Throughout that book, some of the characters go on Spring Break, which is when the novella takes place.) With that being said, it’s been well over a year since I’ve read the books starring the characters involved in this novella, so it took me a bit to remember some of the events that were mentioned. You definitely need to read “Kiss to Conquer,” “Kiss to Forget,” and “Kiss Me First” at least in order to have a decent grasp on what’s happening, but I highly recommend reading all of the previous books in the series just in case something would get spoiled in this one.

With that being said, it was nice to get to see all of them together without a ton of heavy conflict. They have such a nice and supportive friend group, and I don’t remember getting to read about all of them in the same place and interacting all at the same time before. We also get to see more of Kate and Emmett, who I loved in “Kiss Me First,” and Kate’s little sister, Penny. I’m so excited to read Penny’s book! Same with Prescott and Jade. I love a good enemies-to-lovers romance, and they’ve really got the enemies part down already. 

I don’t want to spoil which couple gets married, you’ll have to read the book to find that out, but I liked how it went down. It definitely made their vacation more interesting, and I loved getting to see the couples all so happy after going through all of the struggles that plagued them during their individual books. I hope we get more novellas in the future where we get to see each couple’s wedding. 

Overall, I recommend this book for readers 18+ due to some of the sexual content. I think this is a worthwhile addition to the Blairwood University series, and the cover is absolutely gorgeous! Thanks to Anna and her team for an eARC to review!
