In That Unforgettable Kiss by Tamara Ferguson, Kate Callahan was driven beyond most girls her age. By the time she was nineteen, she had already mastered the construction business so that her father felt comfortable promoting her to supervisor and giving her her own crew. At this same time, a family friend from out of town came to live with her parents for the summer. Murphy needed a place to have a hands-on construction internship and Callahan Construction was the perfect place. From the first time their eyes met, Kate and Murphy felt a connection so strong and undeniable. However, the odds did not seem to be on their side as Murphy was only staying for the summer and they both knew that a long distance relationship was not a good option. The two decided not to act on the strong chemistry, but before they parted ways, they shared a kiss so divine neither could ever forget it. Several years later, Murphy was engaged to be married and he thought that Kate was also getting married soon, but they were both very unhappy. Someone needed to do something fast or the two would lose each other forever. Unknown to everyone, an unseen enemy was lurking in the shadows

Once again, Tamara takes us back to the serene and enchanting town of Crystal Rock and into the lives of its close-knit community.

Kate’s best friend told her when they were children that her true love would show himself in the form of one unforgettable kiss. She even warned Kate that it would take years for her to truly realize the significance of that kiss. But Kate didn’t believe her friend. And when Michael Murphy walks into her life, the last thing she’s thinking about is love. She’s determined to make her mark in the construction business her father built. But Michael isn’t about to just walk out of her life. With the connection between them and that one unforgettable kiss, there’s more to their relationship than either one wants to admit. But problems at the construction site may just push all of those feelings to the back burner as Kate tries to find out who is stealing from her father’s company in That Unforgettable Kiss (Kissed By Fate Book 1) by Tamara Ferguson.

This story is very interesting. As I went along, I found myself absorbed by all of the characters and definitely by everything that was happening. There’s plenty of romance, which I have always loved, but there’s more to this story than just love. There’s a little bit of adventure to tie the whole thing together. I really liked Kate and Murphy as individual people and of course they really did well together. Kissed by Fate is a story of two people who are determined, stubborn and definitely in love. I really loved the way the story evolved and how the two of them managed to work together as well as resolving some important problems.

Tamara Ferguson has written another memorable romance novel in That Unforgettable Kiss. This narrative is an impressive beginning for her Kissed by Fate series. Ferguson captures the hearts of her readers with her likable and intelligent characters. Her men are passionate and masculine and her women are feminine, with appealing charm and “smarts.” She paints beautiful outdoor scenes that grip the imagination of the nature lover and enrapture the heart of the romantic, by portraying sensuality with unadulterated “not too much” explicit detail! Although That Unforgettable Kiss is an alluring tale of romantic fate, Ferguson mixes in a bit of suspense, making it an engaging read. She keeps the “unknown” villainous character lurking in the shadows, and reveals the identity with climactic perfection. The plot’s action gains momentum, and then plunges into white water rapids, with twists, turns and dips, giving the reader an exhilarating ride. Soaked and out of breath, calm waters await you, smoothly leading you to an ideal end.
