First Kiss at Christmas

First Kiss at Christmas JustRead Blog Tour

Welcome to the Blog Tour for First Kiss at Christmas by Lee Tobin McClain, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

first kiss at christmasTitle: First Kiss at Christmas

Series: The Off Season #5

Author: Lee Tobin McClain

Publisher: HQN

Release Date: October 26, 2021

Genre: Clean Contemporary Romance


While this is the fifth book in the series it can be read as a stand-alone. I have not read any of the other books and feel that I did not miss anything.

You are immediately drawn into the story when Kayla meets Jax and his Uncle Tony. I was feeling exactly what Kayla was feeling, was this man safe, and why was the boy crying?

Jax has had a lot of trauma in his short life. You can't help root for him, Tony, and Kayla to have a happy ending. Tony and Kayla both have obstacles to overcome before they can enter into a relationship.

This story has the makings of a hallmark movie, but add in a bit of mystery, an enemy from the past, and a bit of drama. This is a sweet Christmas story that will pull on your heartstrings.

Thank you to JustRead Publicity Tours and the author for the opportunity to read this book. I was not required to give a favorable review and all thoughts and opinions are my own. 


At 25 years old, preschool teacher Kayla Harris is embarrassed to admit she's never been kissed. When Tony DiNunzio and his grieving nephew show up in her classroom, she can't help being drawn to both of them. If only her insecurities-and his guilt over his sister's death-would stop standing in their way.

As Christmas approaches, can these three come together to form a family... not just for the holidays, but forever?
