Katie Price is known in every living room in America. A small-town Wisconsin girl who became an A-list star, she rarely makes it home, but this year is different . . . Little does she know it will lead her straight into the piercing blue-eyed gaze of Wil Greene. A lot has happened in the decade since those cold Wisconsin nights when Wil and Katie drove around in Wil’s Bronco senior year. Since then, Wil's law career hasn’t taken off. Her father passed away. And what started as a personal challenge—kissing a new person twice a week, every week—has made her a growing sensation, but her life is still stuck in phase one. Through the years, the two have never left each other's thoughts and desires, but now suddenly, they are back in each other’s lives. Their reconnection is instantaneous, and the passion is palpable...but can it stand the test of time?

I’m a big fan of this author for their exceptional wordcraft.  The word choices evoke senses and emotions.  It’s a sensory feast to read their stories.

Everyone I Kissed Since You Got Famous is a F/F romance. Wil and Katie had mothers who were best friends. They knew each other their whole lives. In high school, they became close friends. But right after graduation, Katie left to do theater summer stock and then they never talked again for 13 years. That’s not really what either of them wanted but their careers and other people interfered.

Now Katie is back in Milwaukee staying with her parents while she starts on the next part of her career. It’s also December and it’s nice to be with family for the holidays.  Katie does a tv interview, where Wil and her mother are in the audience.  Once they start talking, it’s like they weren’t apart.

The pacing is a bit slow because it is more a character story than one with a big plot.  We get some of each of their points of view, and there are parts of the past recounted.  It’s an exciting time for both of these talented women with bright futures.  There are still some complications which they spend December resolving.
