It Starts With A Kiss

J.L Peridot

A steamy, friends-to-lovers office romance on a pre-AI space station.

Celeste is a talented engineer who doesn’t realise her job’s going nowhere fast. She’s a little naïve. She’ll cut code and solder cables forever as long as Owen’s around. Owen, on the other hand, knows exactly how badly things suck—he just doesn’t care. Sure, his skills aren’t what they used to be, but they’re still better than what Halcyon Aries deserves.

Then it happens. The company’s toxic management team finally cross the line. As both techies race to upgrade the station, to free the team from their oppressive contracts, they come to learn that life—and love—can only ever be what you make it.


It Starts With A Kiss will be available at these fine retailers on or before 9/13/2019.

A socially awkward engineer wins over her complacent colleague as they help their team get fired from their dead-end jobs. A friends-to-lovers office romance on a pre-AI space station.
