Tag Archive: Last Kiss Of Summer


I’ve read Destiny Bay’s first in the series, “Last Kiss Of Summer” and thought it was real good. But Marina Adair’s second in the series, “Feels Like The First Time” is even better than the first. And I definitely think it’s the chemistry between the characters.

I honestly don’t know why, but from the first page onwards Bradley Hawk was just this super hunk of a guy with a funny bone and mushy heart, and Ali Marshall is like Tinker Bell. The chemistry between these two is just pure magic, never mind that Hawk is Ali’s sister’s ex-husband…just schematics right?

With her sister Bridget breezing into town with plans of getting married, and her estranged mother making her presence felt, Ali has her hands full dealing with dramatics and with her brain all muddled, Hawk and she end up in a fake relationship. And the fun starts. One lie leads to another, one kiss becomes two and more, and before they know, they are far gone in the game of love.

The dialogues are pure pleasure tickling with humor and sensuality, the chemistry between Ali and Hawk is yummilicious, and the plot is rich with emotions and depth, and it “Feels Like The First Time” to enjoy a spectacular romance from the sidelines.

Ali Marshal remains as one of my favorite characters and Marina Adair is becoming one of my to-go writers.

I’ve been reading a lot of new series by some of my favorite writers and here’s one from Marina Adair’s basket of romance. Destiny Bay Series starts off with it’s first, “Last Kiss Of Summer” as it brings Kennedy Sinclair to its charm and warmth, far away from home, to start fresh as the owner for a bakery called Sweetie Pies, and lay some roots to call a home.

And the resident Mr. Hotness, Luke Callahan wants to take his cider business and Penalty Box to the next level with his partner, and he needs Kennedy’s apples that she ends up owning along with the Pie shop. And the fact that it was sold to Kennedy by his mother and aunt without his knowledge doesn’t sit well with him. Achieving his dream has just become a bit more deliciously complicated with Kennedy in the equation.

Amidst all the activity of Pie competitions, apple picking, and residents trying to decide whether Kennedy can become Destiny Bay’s new resident, Luke and Kennedy succumb to the attraction that sparked between them and status of his cider business may change the love equation between these two.

Another great start to the series, “Last Kiss Of Summer” makes you chuckle, ties up your heart in strings, makes you fall in love with the wonderful residents and their quirkiness, and gives you a feeling of belonging to a family. Marina Adair did a super fine job penning Luke and Kennedy with their human fears and insecurities as they figure out if they can have their happy ending.
