Kissing Her Crazy by Kira Archer

Book Description

Single mom Lena Oserkowski just wants to relax at the 5-star resort where her brother is getting married. Oh, and figure out how to make one of her businesses successful enough to support her son. Her focus is thrown out of whack when Elliot Debusshere, twin brother of her new sister-in-law, swims to her rescue at the hotel pool.
Elliot is disillusioned with his wealthy, playboy lifestyle and wants nothing more than to bring some meaning and purpose to the charity he runs. When he rescues Lena from a case of heat exhaustion and meets her son Tyler, he has no idea the answer to his problems might have just fallen in his lap. Literally.
With Lena's ideas and Elliot's know-how, they might just be able to make their ventures a success. Except pleasure has a sneaky way of mixing with their business, leaving both dazed and confused. Charming as he is, Elliot isn't father material. And there's no room for a single mom and her child in his life. While the attraction between them isn't easily squashed, there's no telling the lengths his family will go to prevent a relationship.

**I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**

This was just an okay contemporary romance story for me.  Like my last review, the "romance" part of this book felt rushed.  I felt that this book really lacked any emotional growth/development from Lena and Elliot.  And I wasn't the biggest fan of Lena Oserkowski.  She felt really judgmental of Elliot to me.  Plus she was always lecturing (and making him feel bad) him about letting her son swim, playing video games, eating junk food, etc.  I mean, I understand all that but 1) he doesn't have kids, so he doesn't know and 2) YOU ARE ON VACATION, let him have some fun (especially if people are offering to help you!!). 

I felt bad of Elliot's relationship with his parents.  They are rich, snobby a**holes.
