Review by: Jenn
No matter how many boys Claire kisses, she can’t seem to find a decent boyfriend. Someone who wouldn’t rather date her gorgeous best friend, Megan. Someone who won’t freak out when he learns about the tragedy her family still hasn’t recovered from. Someone whose kisses can carry her away from her backwoods town for one fleeting moment.

Until Claire meets Luke.

But Megan is falling for Luke, too, and if there’s one thing Claire knows for sure, it’s that Megan’s pretty much irresistible.

With true love and best friendship on the line, Claire suddenly has everything to lose. And what she learns—about her crush, her friends, and most of all herself—makes the choices even harder.
3.5 stars out of 5 stars
*I received an eARC of this book from the publisher but it did not influence this review in any way.*

17 First Kisses was such a sweet and surprising story. I was completely sucked in by the story that I read it one sitting. I love how relatable Claire, our main character, is and I enjoyed being in her head. Rachael Allen managed to created well-rounded characters that includes both main and secondary characters. I became invested in every character's story and wanted for them to have their happy ending.

I love the whole premise of the story and even though I wanted Claire to stand up to her best friend, Meagan, I could see why she couldn't. Teenager and their need absolute need for acceptance. (It only gets slightly better as an adult, to be honest). I enjoyed 17 First Kisses and I can't wait to see what else Rachael has up her sleeves.
