Plot: Love curses don’t exist. At least that’s what Jonas, master of the meaningless hookup, tells himself when a letter warns him he’s an Eros Guardian cursed to endure a test of true love or forever be alone. His levelheaded longtime friend Cora figures it’s a revenge prank by an ex. The way Jonas stamps each girlfriend with a weeklong use-by date, it serves him right.

But when an impulsive kiss between the two friends reveals potential for more, Cora becomes the target of the Groth Maar: demons sent to wipe out the Eros Guardian line. And suddenly the curse becomes dangerously real.
Breaking the curse means Jonas’s biggest challenge yet. Failure guarantees Cora’s death. But success may cost him his own life...and the loss of his carefully guarded heart to the one girl far too sensible to fall for him.  (2018,

Review:  Great start to a new series! The Third Kiss does have an interesting plot line in regards to the curse, but there are a lot of details and rules that it got a little confusing at times.  But, it still keeps you interested in finding out more.   I'm not sure about the Eros Guardian plot twist.  It seemed a little too convenient in regards to the healing factor.  I do love how Colmer gave us the POV of both Jonas and Cora.  I enjoy books more when that happens.  This really helps to get into the character's head and care more about them as the story progresses.  I also liked the struggle that Cora and Jonas had in regards to their relationship. They did not not want to be together just because of the curse.  So, I'm glad Colmer stretched out the friendship/love relationship between them.  I am definitely looking forward to book 2.  Recommended for ages 14 and up!
