Bettina Vasilis can hardly believe it when basketball star Brady Cullen asks her out, and she just about faints when her strict father actually approves of him.

But when school starts up again, Brady changes. What happened to the sweet boy she fell in love with? Then she meets a smoldering guy in his twenties, and this “cowboy” is everything Brady is not—gentle, caring, and interested in getting to know the real Bettina.

Bettina knows that breaking up with Brady would mean giving up her freedom—and that it would be inappropriate for anything to happen between her and Cowboy. Still, she can’t help that she longs for the scent of his auto shop whenever she’s anywhere else.

When tragedy strikes, Bettina must tell her family the truth—and kiss goodbye the things she thought she knew about herself and the men in her life.

Leslie Connor has written a lyrical, heartbreaking, and ultimately hopeful story about family, romance, and the immense power of love.


I got invested in The Things You Kiss Goodbye, I don't how or when, but somewhere along the way, I was in. So I looked at the ending at 60% in and didn't want to finish it. Because that means this thing happened, and I didn't want this thing to happen, so lesson. learned. My advice, DO NOT LOOK AT THE ENDING. Promise me? Good. Otherwise you'll miss out of this amazing concept centred around the title. I'm also just going to put this out there and we'll never talk about it again. I have a thing for cowboys. The end. Never. Again.
