Publisher's Summary

Homecoming court nominee Erin Armstrong has it all, the best friends, the best boyfriend, and lead in the school play. But when she catches her bestie and her boyfriend holding hands behind the porta potty, her status as Rosemark High’s it-girl takes a nosedive.

Determined to win the crown and earn back her social status, Erin enlists the help of quirky theatre kid Peter Hunt. Together, the two craft a plan to ensure Erin’s victory. That is, if the two can keep their growing attraction from sabotaging the project.

A throwback to the early 2000s, Stage Kiss will have you longing for the days when being brave meant sending an AOL instant message to your crush. Back when Friday nights were made for football games and sleepovers with the friends you’d do anything for.

Okay, entertaining read

This was an okay read, entertaining but the characters, especially the heroine just seemed really immature. It turned me off from the story some with the level of immaturity and just not as much character growth as I would have liked to have seen. This wasn’t a bad story, just didn’t hit to my tastes. The story is on a slower burn side with the romance between main characters. Story flowed well.
The narrator was okay, sounded very young which did fit the character in some ways. The narrator did a good job with the emotion in the voice.

Stage Kiss

This is a cute YA story. The story flowed along nicely. The characters were perfect for high schoolers. The ending remind me of pretty in pink...a bit. Also an 80’s movie. This shows the love of family and how friends can stay friends forever.

I listened to this on audio. Stephanie Quinn did a good job narrating.

Entertaining as well as touching YA story

The story grabs you right away and keeps you there all the way to its non-traditional end.

Initially, Erin is not the most likeable heroine. She's been dumped by her boyfriend for one of her best friends, and all she really seems to care about is her reputation & homecoming. Turns out the relationships are a little more complicated than they first appear, however. And Erin's self absorption isn't quite what it seems either.

That said, I have to agree with those who feel that Nick & Libby got off entirely too easily for what was inarguably a backstabbing move. I think it would have worked out better if they had come to Erin up front & talked to her about their attraction before they started sneaking around to hold hands etc. The story would have been able to follow pretty much the same path without making the two into the crappiest kind of friends.

Additionally, we needed more development of Peter and Erin's relationship between the point where he finally tells her the details of his crappy dance date and the one where he shows up on her doorstep to rescue her.

Why did he put Erin off years before & even just recently? Did he dislike her but then change his mind as he got to know her better? Or did he have a crush but figured she was just like Ashley & would probably hurt him?

It's a very happy happily-ever-after, but the romance felt not quite complete - like a jigsaw puzzle with missing pieces. So I really enjoyed it, I just felt it could have been even better.

*Clean romance level: sweet kisses
*Language: a couple of d*mmits & a few arguable uses of the Lord's Name in vain, though at least not with cursing

[The narrator has a youthful voice that works well for this story & does a great job keeping the characters' voices distinctive, though male voices are a little strained at times]

Great Read

Stage Kiss: Mountain Creek Drive, Book One was a great read by M.F. Lorson. Erin is a home coming court nominee who thinks that she has it all, until she finds her boyfriend with her best friend. She is determined to win homecoming queen and earn back her social status. She works with Peter to ensure that Erin wins. I enjoyed reading Erin's story and can't wait to read more by M.F. Lorson. Stephanie Quinn does a great job of narrating the characters.

a really great, enjoyable, and fun listen ;)

Stage Kiss by M.F. Lorson is a sweet YA reminiscing of HS in the early 2000s. I loved getting to know Erin Armstrong and her Care Bears backpack crew, as well as Nick and Peter Hunt. This is kind of a different YA for me, since, in a way, it made me miss HS (though I didn't attend mine during the same years as the characters in this book), as well as it didn't leave me the impression that the story relied heavily on drama (as in, a typical feud between h and archenemy since forever). I loved Erin's sense of friendship and personality, and I think the narrator did a good job of bringing her to life, as well as her group of friends. It may have cost me a few tries to get into this story, but once I did, it hooked me in and never let go.
All in all, a really great, enjoyable, and fun listen ;)

This was so cute and fun. It reminded me of the 90's movies I loved so much. I definitely recommend this to anyone whose needs a book to make you smile.

Sweet YA

A sweet YA romance with endearing characters and relatable experiences. I didn't care for the narrator for this book. Her voice would fit a younger MC. That aside I enjoyed this book. I wouldn't hesitate to let my 12 yr old read and/or listen to this.

So cute

I really enjoyed this one. The main character went through the ringer at the start but she didn’t let it beat her she pushed on and became a stronger person because of it. Wish I could rate this one higher

☆☆☆ She's All That with a slight spin ☆☆☆

I thought Stage Kiss was super sweet and an adorable high school romance. I think it tries a bit to clear up some social issues teens face during high school. Plus, it gives us that age old fear of what we assume is our best friend and our boyfriend cheating together. I like that Erin acted way above her age in a situation like that. I do think we'd all want to get a bit even. She sets her sights on sweet revenge. I say, good for her! I enjoyed Stephanie Quinn's narration. I felt she portrayed a teenage girl pretty good.

A Teens story line - book/audiobook for Teens

I have reviewed this with younger teens in mind, because I found that to be who would like listening to a teen soap opera mini series.

For teens, the subject of being chosen as home coming queen and the pressures of popularity would be relatable and amusing.

Narrator's voice akin to Sharpey from High School Musical. Only much nicer characters.

easy listen.

Didn’t love the narration.
Easy light listening fine for listening to while busy doing some tasks or commuting. Story was better for younger readers maybe.
