I first read Kiss Cam as an unedited version on Swoon Reads last year. I loved the book, and I was so glad to hear that it was chosen to be published. It was just so adorable and swoon-worthy and I died a little bit. I found it to be just as cute as I read it a second time.
June, Jasper, and Lenny are neighbors, best friends, and famous vloggers. Over the years, the three friends have built up quite the following on their vlog, WereVloggingHere, and with that following has come fans who ship different pairings of the three friends. After a truth-or-dare comment has June and Jasper kissing, a weekly segment is formed which has the two surprising each other with different fan requested Kiss Cams. As the segment becomes more frequent and intense, June is left questioning her and Jasper’s relationship and whether or not they’ve crossed a line in their friendship.
Kiss Cam is a best friends’ romance. It’s the basic best friends-to-lovers trope, and I couldn’t help but fall for Jasiper. Like the fans in the book, I love shipping couples together (although, mine tend to be fictional). It was fun seeing what it might be like for the pair being shipped and what kind of pressures that puts on their friendship. I really did love the concept and thought Kiara London pulled it off well.
Even though the story was predictable, it was adorable. Sometimes you just need a cute romance as a pick-me-up, and Kiss Cam definitely fits the bill. It kept me engaged and could easily be read in one sitting. I thought the different Kiss Cam segments were fun and creative, but I couldn’t help but wish for more of them.
Overall, Kiss Cam is another adorable, swoon-worthy addition to the Swoon Reads line. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a fun, fluffy read.
