Who meets their Prince Charming in an elevator on a day when nothing seems to go right? Lena Masterson was having a rough day. Her coffee pot exploded, her favorite heel broke on the way to work, her computer died, and her coworker sabotaged her performance review that she should have aced.

Lena Masterson was having a rough day. Her coffee pot exploded, her favorite heel broke on the way to work, her computer died, and her coworker sabotaged her performance review that she should have aced. To top it all off, she had to stay late to fix someone else's mistake. So when she literally ran into a handsome stranger at work, she was fairly certain that it might actually be the worst day of her life. Instead, it was the start of something wonderful. From the moment she nearly bowled the man over, she couldn't take her mind off of him. She didn't know anything about him, and could only assume that he was someone's assistant. Still, the encounter left her with new self-confidence. She made a move assertive enough to get the attention of her boss' boss, and be granted a new position as the personal paralegal of the head partner. This promotion soon led to an important trip to the Caribbean, where she saw a familiar face on the beach... Everything seemed perfect when she was in Aiden's arms (other than her missing shoe), but he was holding something back. Worse, Lena was keeping a secret from him as well. She knew that she couldn't keep up her little white lie forever, but it turned out that Aiden's secret was much bigger. Much much much bigger. A billion times bigger, in fact. Even though he treated her like Cinderella while away from real life, it was possible that the billionaire playboy just thought of her as one of his "flavors of the week". After saying goodbye with one last barefoot kiss and returning to the real world, there was a burning question on Lena's mind: Did this Prince Charming love her as much as she loved him?

    I love how this book turned out, but it was a real struggle to write. Aiden and Lena had their love story all worked out in my head, but then they kept trying to mess it up! It's funny how characters take on lives of their own sometimes! This is very strongly based on Cinderella, and it was a lot of fun to modernize the old fairy tale and make it into something new and fresh. Just in case you missed it, here's an easy comparison: Lena Masterson= Cinderella Aiden Hayes= Prince Charming Kathryn McDonal I love how this book turned out, but it was a real struggle to write.

And of course there is a missing shoe! (Which makes the title that much better!) I hope you all enjoy this latest in the Kisses series! Thank you all so much for giving me the opportunity to tell these stories :)

    Lena's day has started off rough with a series of bad luck but at least she's getting her review which will make it all worth it. She's work hard earning her raise but when it comes time for her review she learns that the one person she doesn't get along with has ruined any chance of her getting a raise. To top it off she has to cancel her plans to see her sister and work late while doing the job for the one person who hurt her raise. Things aren't looking up for Lena but that's when fate takes Lena's day has started off rough with a series of bad luck but at least she's getting her review which will make it all worth it. She's work hard earning her raise but when it comes time for her review she learns that the one person she doesn't get along with has ruined any chance of her getting a raise. To top it off she has to cancel her plans to see her sister and work late while doing the job for the one person who hurt her raise. Things aren't looking up for Lena but that's when fate takes a hand giving her a handsome stranger to help her return some books, and giving her the courage to stand up for herself. Thanks to Aiden's encounter it gives Lena the push she takes the proof that they need to save a client millions and going right to the partner in charge of the case. Little did she know at the time but her future would change when a chance job drops into her lap. Now working only for one of the named partners her life has changed and even get's to go on a business trip to the Caribean. She had no idea she would be meeting Aiden, but the two can't deny the attraction and start a whirlwind romance. What about the secrets they both have, will a romance survive after she leaves? I love Lena she's super nice to the point that she lets people walk all over her. She just needs to find her voice which she seems to do after meeting up Aiden. They have a sweet whirlwind romance finding in each other what they have been missing and it just works. The chemistry between them is a mix of sweet and steamy which I like. He's just the perfect guy for Lena they just both need to accept fate. I'm such a fan of Krista Lakes books each one is better than the last. I love that the characters are all slightly connected throughout the Kisses series even if they are just business connections. After all how many sexy billionaires can there really be in the world. I loved Lena she may be my favorite girl in the series as I found her easy to connect with as we are very similar. I love the authors writing style she's created this unique world where all these people are intertwined. I enjoy her storytelling it's easy to get lost in her books and they are hard to put down. I actually finished Barefoot Kisses in just one afternoon, I just had to see how it was going to play out. I'm looking forward to reading another book by the author, as she's one of my favorites.

    Another fantastic read from Krista. I just adore Krista and her stories. She is one author who goes above and beyond for her fans. I don't know any other author who places their new books for free, especially when Krista has already proved that her books are worth every penny. She is inspiring. Now, enough fan girling.

If you are new to Krista, then you can most definitely jump in here. A great read that made me sigh and left me with a good feeling at the end. Well done Krista!

    I absolutely adore Krista Lakes and The Kisses series. Barefoot Kisses was once again a homeroom with a Billionaire Love Story. Loved the storyline and thought Krista did a great job of including previous characters. The chemistry and love between Aiden & Lena was amazing in and out of the bedroom. Looking forward to more books in this series and by Krista. If your looking for a great series to start...then look no further than the Kisses series!!

    I have now read Krista Lakes entire Kisses series and have loved every single minute of it. Although Barefoot Kisses is book 7 out of this 9 book series, it ultimately ended up being the last book I read and it was absolutely spectacular. Throughout the series, we do continue to have visits from and/or references to prior characters, but it was never an issue for me reading them out of order.

Throughout the series, we do continue to have visits from and/or references to prior characters, but it was never an issue for me reading them out of order. This is a sweet story of love at first sight with, of course, a couple of secrets thrown in as well. Aiden and Lena’s initial encounter lasts only for a short time but was enough to make a lasting impression on both of them. So when they unexpectedly meet again on a business trip, the sparks between them ignite a passion neither of them had ever experienced before. But once Aiden’s secret surfaces, Lena’s self-doubt makes her begin to question whether she was simply the next notch in his bedpost. As always with this series, I was granted my happily-ever-after, feel good ending which made me grin from ear to ear. There are also a couple of “bad guys” thrown in that you just don’t like from the very beginning and with every meeting between them and our heroine, I just kept repeating in my head that they will get theirs (hopefully). I’m not going to spoil it; you’ll have to read this story for yourself to find out but with Krista Lakes’ sweet storytelling style, you’ll definitely not be disappointed. The one thing I noticed, unfortunately, is that there were some typos throughout the book which disappointed me a bit. However, please don’t let that deter you from reading this book because the story far outweighs that issue which is why I am still giving it a 5-star rating. I loved Barefoot Kisses very much. I was drawn in from the very beginning and had a difficult time putting it down anticipating the beautiful, romantic, hot and steamy romance I knew this was going to be.

    The Kisses series was always one of my favorite so it wasn't a brainer whether to read this one or not. I loved that with each new book we get to see the happily ever after of another couple :) This one is about Logan and Lena. Two completely different people with completely different backgrounds who meet by chance (or because of fate ;)) In a way the story reminds me of Jack and Emma's (my favorite couple up till now) but it is even more fun and intriguing to read.

So now my favorite couple in the series are Logan and Lena. Sorry Jack and Emma but you had to step down to second place ;) I definitely loved the reference to Cinderella. It added quite an interesting twist to the fairy tale and how it can actually work in our present :) The lost show, the evil sister (in this case the evil coworker) and of course the fairy godmother :) And Prince Charming is definitely charming and knows how to seduce your heart and leave you dreaming of him and a future together :) As a whole this is a sweet romantic story with HEA that will appeal to all lovers of romance (just not the lovers of dark romance ;)). I have to say that recently my tastes run more in the direction of darker stories but I still enjoyed this book and finished it for a day :)

Barefoot Kisses is centred on Aiden and Lena who meet one night when Lena is working late. She pretends to be a lawyer but he never tells her who is and she believes that he is the assistant to Ben. After Lena takes a job with Katherine, a high flying lawyer where Lena works, she has to travel with Katherine to the Caribbean, which is where she next sees Aiden. Things progress between the couple but they still both have their secrets. Once the secrets come out will they be able to move past them, or will their pasts dictate their future? You briefly get to see Izzy and Noah along with Jack and Emma (from previous Kisses books). It would be lovely at some point to catch up with all these characters as they all intertwine at some point along the way.

    This was a great book! A fun, quick read that really entertained me for a few hours. I loved the unique writing style and how I connected with the main character, Lena. Sometimes you have such a bad day, you just feel like giving up on trying to make good things happen, but then one good thing happens and that thing makes you a stronger person.

Aiden, the love interest for Lena, was a cool character. He was confident, kind, and such a awesome character! He was depicted as a playboy who throws girls away when he's done with them, but he never came across that way to me. Honestly, he's probably one of the nicest book characters I've ever read about. Not to say he doesn't have issues, because every character does, but he, unlike other characters, followed his heart and was kind the whole time. I recommend this book to everyone. A quick read, but it was amazing and worth the read.

    Obviously Lena and Aiden don't like to get interrupted, "everything's fine," Aiden assured him. I smiled at Ben, but I really just wanted to hit him.

    Another great romance I have loved every book in this series. I love how Aiden and Lena meet and how several characters from previous books make an appearance. I love how Aiden and Lena compliment reach other so well. There are even some great humor mixed in with the romance. I found myself laughing out loud several times. I also found myself cheering Lena on as she gained confidence and stood up for herself in regards to her job. Well done Krista, thank you for another great romance.

    I very much enjoyed this book. I love reading books about very wealthy men and then falling for an average everyday girl. cause most of this time these women are stronger and more special than the realize as is the case with Lena.. I also love a book where I get see the characters fall in love and develop throughout the course of the story which this has. While there are a ton of books out there about wealthy men falling for not so wealthy everyday women this one was special in its own right and I very much enjoyed this book.

    I will start by saying I absolutely love this series and the characters. But this book seems like it was rushed to the point of missing editing. First, there were many instances of extra words that weren't edited out. Second, the writing didn't flow as well not only because of the errors, but it just seemed more like this was phoned in. It's still a good story and worth a read, but it is my least favorite of the series. This author is much better than this book.

    This was a fabulous story!!! i loved how the heroine of the story got to come up from the depths so to speak, got to learn some lessons along the way, and in the end , was the strong woman she always knew she could be! I loved all the descriptions of the Caribbean, how things just floe=wed right along and how lovely the story was. It was a great story that flowed nicely and was a fast great read!

    A wonderful Cinderella story. Lena is a hard-working paralegal working her way towards her law degree. The day of her evaluation starts badly and gets progressively worse. A chance encounter leads to a brief meeting with her prince, except she does not know he is a prince. Trials and tribulations and successes ensue with the vanquishing of the wicked "step-sister" and a happily ever after. A wonderful Cinderella story.

    I kind of have a thing for Krista Lakes sweet Caribbean romances. They sweep you away like a vacation you would like to be on. I liked that Lena was a strong woman who knew what she wanted in life but lacked a bit of confidence. I love how her and Aiden meet and she really becomes the woman she is meant to be. Great Romantic read I really enjoyed.

    Not too bad but not that great either. The love story was just about fine, although everything seemed rather superficial. It just wasn't that special or extraordinary, but the novel is still perfect for simply relaxing and not having to think a lot. And that's about it. There really isn't a lot to say about this.

    I've enjoyed these billionaire love stories - and this one was no exception. I enjoyed it. Got lost in my own head a few times wondering how the main character could have not seen or known things that were glaringly obvious, but had to let it go so I could just enjoy a cozy romance.
