Yet when news comes that Battle of the Sexes is on the bubble for cancellation, Grace and Ashton need to step up their efforts to engage their audience to keep the show alive. When a charity organization approaches them and proposes that the two of them kiss for a fund raiser, Grace and Ash agree to kiss for a good cause. A kiss is just a kiss, right?

Or can one kiss really change everything?

Ugh! My review was somehow lost on my computer. I try to grab it and it says it can't get it! :(
SO, I am going to piece it from my memories.

I enjoyed the radio personality show "The battle of the sexes". My hubby and I go at it like that all the time, from putting down the toilet seat, to cupcakes, to everything. So, I got a kick out of this story.

Grace and Ashton are both good at what they do even though they go at it differently. Ashton is not into social media. He prefers to hike and live his life and talk to people face to face.He is hands on with helping to raise his niece. He doesn't even use his phone the studio gave him. Until one day, they need to step up because the show may be cancelled if they don't step it up in the polls and ratings.

So, Grace introduces him to social media. But it's his niece who really gets him into it and how to use it to battle with Grace and entertain his listeners.

Then in another attempt at getting their program renewed, Ashton and Grace agree to help a charity out by kissing one second for every thousand dollars raised.

The problem is that Grace has a boyfriend. Well she did until recently, but Ashton doesn't know it. Ashton has also been harboring a crush for Grace. When the money raised ends up their kiss being a long time for just a kiss, Ashton wants it to be PG rated but wants to really kiss Grace.

I love the family theme in the book. I think Ashton and Grace are too cute together. I was worried at first on how they would play out Grace's boyfriend. I didn't want any cheating to happen. It didn't. Shwoo!

If you like a cute story, family, charity events, kisses, hiking, radio, then this might be for you!





“Good afternoon, and welcome to the newest edition of Battle of the Sexes," Grace said, starting off the show. "With me today is the man who has just proven that the Instagram app is truly foolproof—my no-longer-technically challenged cohost, Ashton Miller.”
Ash leaned forward into the mic. “And with me is the woman I’ve recently learned feels compelled to alert the world via photograph every time she finds a pair of shoes she likes—the woman who takes the ‘anonymous’ out of Shopaholics Anonymous—my lovely cohost, Grace Vasquez.”
Grace was unapologetic. “A good pair of shoes is worth sharing.”
“Oh? Does that mean I should post pictures of my shoes?” Ash asked, picking up his phone and pressing the camera icon.
“You’re wearing hiking boots.”
“That’s right,” Ash said, putting his shoes up on the table and snapping a picture. “These are Salomon Quest 4D GTXes. I wear them any time I go on a shoot that requires some hiking. They’re light, durable, and provide great stability. Is that the sort of thing you share on Instagram?”
“Not really,” Grace said. “But I’m sure Salomon doesn’t mind the free advertising you just handed them.”
“Well, I’m totally posting a picture,” Ash said, in his best valley girl tone. “It’s not every day a man finds comfort, function, and fashion all in one shoe.”
“Indeed,” Grace replied. “I’m still waiting for that day to happen for you.”
Ash smiled against his will and set his phone to the side. He’d post the photo later. Grace was clearly in a mood that required his full attention. “So what are we talking about today? And, please, don’t let it be shoes!”
Grace glanced at her computer screen, giving Ash a view of her stunning profile. Seriously, how was her skin so smooth?
“Today the most up-voted topic is…” She blinked, looking confused. “Huh.”
“Huh?” Ash echoed, intrigued by the look of confusion on Grace’s face.
“Cupcakes,” she said.
“Cupcakes?”
Grace nodded and frowned at her monitor. “Why do men hate cupcakes? is the trending topic at the moment.” Grace looked Ash’s way, visibly confused. “Do men hate cupcakes?”

Sheralyn’s first job was as a karate instructor, which taught her that practice does not make perfect; practice makes habit–good or bad. Martial arts also taught Sheralyn that a master is simply a person who can effortlessly do all the actions a beginner finds difficult or maybe even impossible.

Sheralyn has worked in many fields throughout her life, but her 12 years as a karate instructor have shaped how she does everything, including writing and mentoring. She likes to keep things light and fun, but she’s also aware that life is journey and that if you’re going to buy a book, your life should better for it.

So, fiction or nonfiction, know that each of Sheralyn’s books are designed to take you to a new place. Maybe that book is designed to help you escape for a few hours, or maybe it’s a book designed to teach you a new skill. Either way, Sheralyn hopes it’s unforgettable…in a good way.
