It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time by Kylie Scott Review

4 Smooches


Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at eighteen hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was.

Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation—confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Add her father to the misunderstanding, and Pete had been left with a broken nose and a business on the edge of ruin. The man had to be just as glad as everyone else when she left town.

Seven years on, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but a fully grown adult more than capable of getting through the wedding and being polite. But all it takes is seeing him again to bring back all those old feelings.

Sometimes first loves are the truest.


I love Kylie Scott’s books and I was eagerly awaiting the release of this one. I was excited to see what she did with an age difference that large. The two had great chemistry but nothing was as easy as Adele had hoped.

I was blown away with the intense heat and steam in this book. Pete and Adele had an undeniable attraction. There was a lot attention on the age difference but after reading the blurb I very much expected that.

Overall, this was a highly enjoyable read. I love Kylie Scott’s voice and this book did not let me down.
