Kiss My Putt by Tara Sivec
Romantic Comedy. 1st standalone in a related series.
Anyone who knows me even a little knows that Tara Sivec is my hands-down favorite romantic comedy author. I was so excited for Kiss My Putt! Just imagining all of the golf puns with shafts and balls and holes made me giggle before I even picked it up. And yes, the over-the-top fun that I love about Tara was there. But my favorite thing about her writing isn’t the snarky ridiculous humor, it’s the characters that I want to be best friends with. Let me tell you, Kiss My Putt was filled with characters to love.
Birdie and Palmer have been best friends since they were 15. Palmer was a young golf prodigy who would train on Summersweet Island, and Birdie was the local girl who worked at the clubhouse. But three years ago something happened and Palmer cut her out of his life. Meanwhile, Palmer was killing it on the professional golf tours until the golden boy has a very public meltdown and decided to return back to Summersweet Island.
“Well hey there, Putz, you absolute piece of dog shit. Long time no see.”
Birdie and Palmer have been holding a torch for each other for 15 long years, but neither had any idea that the other felt that way. Her best friend and sister sure knew from their awesome “sip and bitch” sessions, but at the same time, Birdie was still holding a massive grudge against him for blocking her. That didn’t stop her from fantasizing about more.
“She set her vagina on fire masturbating last night.”
The real horndog is Palmer though. He was such a guy, thinking with his dick all the time. But he was simple and sweet and so obvious—to everyone except Birdie.
“She…. Birdie…. Holy shit, she touched herself thinking about me? I can’t…. Nope. Think of something else. Think of something else! 16 x 97 is… I don’t fucking know. Fuck this fucking shit. Math is hard, and so is my dick!”
Once again, Tara made me laugh, swoon, tear up, and want to jump in and be BFFs with her characters. And the golf puns? OUTSTANDING.
- As over-the-top as Tara’s humor can be sometimes, her characters are so real.
- I have a total crush on Bodhi and I can’t wait for his book!
- I loved all the secondary characters.
- A great start to a series.
- Tara’s signature humor with maybe a little more heart.
- Palmer was just so in love it was adorable.
- I laughed, teared up, and swooned. Kiss My Putt brought out all emotions.
- Their lack of communication was just a little too much. I wanted to scream at both of them!
The Down & Dirty:
Everything I love about Tara’s writing is here in Kiss My Putt. It’s funny, sexy, silly, and hella hot. I have been having a really hard time reading lately but Kiss My Putt by Tara Sivec kept me involved and laughing. The great cast of characters with their snarky banter made this book so much fun and I can’t wait for the next two books. I will tell you now though, I already know that Tess and Bodhi’s book will be my favorite.
I never thought a golfer could be sexy, but let me tell you, Tara changed my mind on that! I can’t wait to revisit all the characters on Summersweet Island via audible (coming soon) and in the next two books in the series.
Rating: 4.5 Stars, 4.5 Heat
