Review: Licks by Kelly Siskind

Review: Licks by Kelly Siskind Licks Author: Kelly Siskind Reviewer: Jen Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Growing up as neighbors, Gwen never told her best friend August that she was in love with him. And instead, stopped talking to him in high school when he started dating someone else.

Nikko doesn’t need anyone from the network looking over his shoulder...
