KISS IN THE DARK by Marcia Lynn McClure

“Boston,” he mumbled.
“I mean…Logan…he’s like the man of my dreams! Why would I blow it? What if…” Boston continued to babble.
“Boston,” he said. The commanding sound of his voice caused Boston to cease in her prattling and look to him.
“What?” she asked, somewhat grateful he’d interrupted her panic attack.
He frowned and shook his head.
“Shut up,” he said. “You’re all worked up about nothing.” He reached out, slipping one hand beneath her hair to the back of her neck.
Boston was so startled by his touch, she couldn’t speak—she could only stare up into his mesmerizing green eyes. His hand was strong and warm, powerful and reassuring.
“If it freaks you out so much…just kiss in the dark,” he said.
Boston watched as Vance put the heel of his free hand to the light switch. In an instant the room went black.

First line:

This is my first book to read of Marcia's and I think I'll read more. KISSING IN THE DARK was a good, clean romance with upstanding values.
Boston is a kind soul who gets walked on too much. She's in a poisonous relationship because she wanted to help someone. Boston has good friends who help her. Her best friend has an older brother, Vance,  who gives her pep talks to build her up and get her away from the mean friend.
The characters are fun. They all have a bit of the storyline.
I LOVE a gentleman in stories. I really do. Vance, the main hottie, is such a person.
Marcia work good characters and I found myself wanting to be a better friend like some of the friends.
There were a couple loose ends like: Boston got the job she wanted but then we never hear about it again or the way she wanted to stand up to her boss. Also, the boy she's crushing on isn't heard from again after the third date. Oh and we don't hear about the IOU.
Ms. McClure has a few pet words she likes to use a lot: giggle, scolded, nest.
Marcia has a great writing style. I'm going to find another one of hers to read.
