“Five hundred kisses are all it takes to steal a heart.”

Chris Montgomery doesn’t believe it, and he’d know. He’s met— and had— many a man. None of whom he’d want to share five hundred kisses with. If you don’t like someone, you just don’t like them. End of story.

No amount of kissing will change that.

Dylan Halsworth doesn’t believe it either. But Chris and his arrogant, always right, dare I be wrong attitude has Dylan challenging him to try it. And who knows, maybe watching his most loathed neighbor suffer through five hundred kisses with the same man is worth it. He’d sit back, crack open a Mountain Dew, and have a good laugh . . .

But … there is one slight snag in his plan.

Chris has chosen Dylan with whom to prove his point . . .

This is both a friends-to-lovers and enemies-to-lovers story. Dylan needs his neighbour Chris’s help when the kitchen at the summer camp Dylan runs is destroyed in a storm. This book is billed as enemies to lovers, but really it’s friends to enemies to lovers. 

Dylan Halsworth runs a summer camp. one day the kitchen’s camp gets destroyed in a storm. Dylan has one option to move the kids to a better place is to go to his neighbour’s help. When one of the camp kids says that 

“Five hundred kisses are all it takes” 

“To steal someone’s heart. Anyone’s heart”…. 

Chris, never believes in stuff like that. BUT when Dylan challenges him to have “five hundred kisses” and of-course Chris won’t say no to a dare and a kiss with Dylan… What starts out as a challenge, forces two ex friends to face their past and discover each other again.

Anyta Sunday’s 500 Kisses was adorable. Anyta Sunday always brings the cute in a big way. Now, it’s still a far from perfect 75-page short story. But it’s fresh and sweet, and there’s an endearing, amusing quality to it that made my heart happy. I didn’t expect to love this novella so much.

This is adorable. Because even though the premise may sound kind of strange, and even though the triple combo of misunderstandings, resentment and sudden forgiveness is taken a little too far, there are banter and kissing for the sake of kissing (and for the sake of proving a point) and thunderstorms, so it’s a win.
