My Review of Kiss & Tell by Julia Blake

Karen’s Review

This is the fifth book in the series, and they are all standalone. Kiss and Tell is the penultimate one, and I’d accidentally skipped it after I’d read sixth.

Each character in this family has their own story. This one belonged to Isabella Santorini. She never forgot Nick Eastman and their teenage romance. When they meet up again several years later, they realise that love never went away.

But of course, it isn’t that easy as the adventure begins. It was exciting, frightening, and an emotional rollercoaster, as their love is severely tested.

This is a globe-trotting book filled with spies, espionage, the CIA, and murderous enemies.

Julia Blake is a great story teller. I’ve read her other series and her standalone books. She’s easy to read and calls herself ‘A Writer for all Seasons,’ because of her many different genres. Check her out.

This book will appeal to a wide variety of readers from romantics to thriller lovers.


Sometimes, you must decide whether to listen to your head or trust your heart

When 17-year-old Isabella Santorini fell in love with the 19-year-old American boy, Nick Eastman, she thought it was forever. Then fate cruelly ripped them apart. Now, eleven years later, Nick is back, but can Isabella trust him or his vows of love?

Her boss says no. All intel about him says no. Even Isabella’s head says no. But her heart desperately wants to believe that the boy she loved is still somewhere inside the mysterious and dangerous man Nick has become.

From the streets of London to the harsh landscape of Afghanistan, Isabella must fight for her life all the time unsure of who – or even what – Nick Eastman is.

Exciting and fast-paced, Kiss & Tell is a battle between the head and the heart – with death the consequence of a wrong decision.
