A great start to another awesome series by Marina Adair, “It Started With A Kiss” has all the ingredients to touch your heart with it’s emotional and wonderful set up in a rustic Sierra Nevada town, a town full of loving people, supporting and caring for each other in sickness and health. And a town that Avery Adams is dreaming of making it a home and fill it with adventures as fate gives her a second chance at life.

The world is a home for Tyson Donavon, as he lives his life rescuing people on the treacherous terrains and coming back home was never on his risky plan. But an ailing father and a failing family adventure’s lodge that is his father’s life, brings him home. What was supposed to be a short and temporary help seems to become more of a permanent fixture as fate throws Avery into his path.

The chemistry between Avery And Tyson is an amazing blend of charisma and love as they get to know each other, her patience and tenacity softens his heart, Tyson’s adventure for life gives Avery a chance to fulfill her bucket list, and slowly making a life together seems to be an adventure that these two are willing to risk.

Marina Adair is another of those wonderful writers who pays great attention to detail, keeping the narration emotional and poignant that makes you laugh, cry and scream as you are reading the story. Avery was just an amazing character and all kudos goes to Marina for creating a perfectly imperfect heroine.

And “It All Started With A Kiss”!

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.

I finally caught up with Marina Adair’s romances and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed them and she has become a permanent fixture in my library of authors. “The Eastons” is a brand new series from her kitty and we get to read the trials and tribulations of these siblings as they manage the course of heartache and love.

Starting off the chase in this series is “Chasing I Do”, as the Easton sibling Gage Easton has the daunting task of making the wedding arrangements for his client/brother and surprise, surprise takes him right to the door step of his late brother’s fiancé, Darcy Kincaid, owner and planner of the venue. Regret and guilt have him question the arrangement, but friendship, attraction and redemption keeps him in Darcy’s eyesight. And shock and surprise at finding the little four-year angel right next to Darcy seals his fate.

Darcy Kincaid was brave enough to run away from a marriage that could have been a mistake laced with betrayal and pain. Yet she believes in happy endings that had made her a successful wedding planner. The responsibility of a baby gives her the courage to single-mindedly and single-handedly make a fresh life for them, without depending on anyone. Coming face to face with Gage was not on her agenda, yet seeing him brings back the pain of loss and what once could have been hers.

With family dynamics, truths untold and the unexplored attraction between Gage and Darcy lighting a match, “Chasing I Do” makes one captivating and an emotional read. I’ve cried a few times as I followed Darcy to her happy ending, praised Gage for his relentless pursuit for the truth and his support for Darcy, the loyalty between the siblings and second chances of finding a large family.

Marina Adair penned a heartwarming story so full of love and care, good people and friends, courage and strength to make choices in life, and grabbing those second chances with faith and hope, you can’t but help fall in love with Darcy and Gage. She did a brilliant job of choreographing the emotions in the right place at the right time.

A great start to another fabulous series I’m sure of and a great addition to the library.
