From #1 New York Times bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a steamy romance that follows Kennedy as she falls for Noah . . . even though she shouldn't.

When I first met him I resisted.
Like any forbidden love, I told myself he was a crush, and it would pass.
That was a lie. It never faded.

And I never expected he would fall for me just as hard.

There were so many reasons that should have kept us apart, least of all, the decade that separated us.
Growing up in New York City, I learned early on that love is a double-edged sword.

Love broke up my parents, love took away my friends, and love -- the big, intense, never-been-like-this-before
love -- landed me in therapy.

Now I'm heading to college, and it's time to give love a clean slate again. But, can I really start over when he's still in my life?

Because the one man I've always wanted, and also the only guy I absolutely can't have…
And he wants me just as fiercely.

Can I settle for anything less than the love of my life?


"21 Stolen Kisses captured my heart from the first page and didn't let go. It made my heart ache, leap from joy, and ultimately root for a love that's forbidden yet unstoppable." - NYT Bestselling Author Claire Contreras

"21 Stolen Kisses was a truly beautiful and genuine love story. This is romantic as it gets, people. Lauren Blakely brought it, and she brought it hard. Nothing will make you believe in true love more than this story right here." - Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads


  • For Kennedy and Noah

    By Aimarel
    The author fought to tell the story and in my case I say: Good for you! I love it and it will stay with me for ever. You never forget your first love. When you are young you are bound to make mistakes and always wonder what if. This one is and they live HEA.
  • Found hearts❤️❤️

    A copy was provided for an honest review. What do you consider taboo? What is age? Does love truly conquer all? Kennedy is fighting against the guilt she feels over her parents divorce and her role in it. Noah is fighting against his feeling for his dear friend's daughter. Kennedy and Noah can't fight their feelings for each other. They tried. How do you fight against your heart? Can two people make it together in a world where all the cards are stacked against them? This is truly one of the sweetest stories I have read in a long time. I now am saving Found Hearts everywhere I find them. A simple picture of a heart in unexpected places can change how you view love and life. Sometimes the greatest lovestoriesare in unexpected places.

  • Love the love letters

    By Smutbookjunkie
    This story was so much more than your traditional swoons romance. The love letters that were written were beautiful. I also learned a little about F. Scott Fitzgerald. I love it when a romance read leaves me with a positive feeling about redemption. Another five star read from Lauren Blakely.

    This book touched my heart and soul!!! I laughed, I cried, I swooned. So much emotion for these two characters - I love the notion of time and falling in love out of time, and how they fell for each other through songs and music, and all their hope that maybe someday!
