PRE-RELEASE REVIEW: “When Adam Kissed Me” by Chris Scully


Sequel to Inseparable

Nine and a half weeks ago, Joe Massone got the surprise of his life when his straight best friend and secret crush, Adam, kissed him. At the time, Adam was recovering from an accident that left him with temporary amnesia and broken ribs, so Joe isn’t sure if he should take it seriously. Is Adam really gay? Or was the blow to his head to blame? Having secretly loved Adam since they were teenagers, Joe doesn’t want to get his hopes up and have his heart broken.

Despite that first kiss, Joe and Adam are still in limbo—now more than friends, but not quite lovers. Adam’s injuries have meant they can’t take their relationship to the next level, and for Joe, not much has changed from when they were just best friends and roommates. He starts to think neither of them is ready to take that final step.

Patience stretched to the limit, Adam makes plans to break the stalemate. But when Joe sabotages things by inviting their friends along, Adam is left to wonder if their new relationship is over before it’s even started. Before he gives up, though, he’s determined to prove to Joe he wants more than just a kiss.


OMG I LOVE THESE TWO GUYS!! I must say that Chris Scully’s writing suits me just fine. I read this with smile on my face – and all right, fine, I also had sniffy moments (my sappy side is showing *grin*.

In this novella, we finally get Joey’s perspective (Inseparable was written from Adam’s point-of-view) as he dodged the worry about Adam’s feeling for him (will it changed?) to suffering from a case of horniness and blue balls (he couldn’t have sex with Adam, Adam had broken ribs and concussion!). I found it adorable … because Joey was trying so HARD not to have sex with Adam (haha!). But at the same times, he was so scared that Adam would go back to his ‘straight’ ways.

I could be such a sucker for best-friends-to-lovers story and this one had what I needed. There were a couple flashbacks on important moments on Joey and Adam’s life, so it was clear how these two men had been part of each other’s life for so long. I was so happy that the two men were actually TALKING about the issue. And after they straighten things up (no pun intended), I found it quite humorous that Adam was soooo ready to embark the joy of gay sex (haha!).

It was sweet and cute and romantic, and I loved everyone here, including the friends and Joey’s Italian family. I even thought that Adam and Joey’s friend, Peter, might have a good story to tell there! A Greek boy with a Greek boy love sounded good, no?

Another story from Chris Scully that made me all smile with happiness. I would definitely read another book by her.
