Last Kiss of Summer by Marina Adair….Release Tour & Review

Last Kiss Of Summer Banner






He’s one bad apple she just can’t resist…Kennedy Sinclair never dreamed she’d own a pie shop and an orchard in a small town like Destiny Bay. But nestled between the mountains and the Pacific Ocean, it’s the perfect place to cross something off her “Life’s short so eat the icing first” list and start her life over from scratch. Her shop, Sweetie Pies, is famous for its hot, flaky apple turnovers and sinfully delicious deep dish pie. For Kennedy though, nothing is more enticing than the tall, strapping slice of temptation who keeps coming back for more.

Luke Callahan is determined to make his hard cider business a success. With his beloved father’s cider recipe and the opportunity of a lifetime in his grasp, he’ll stop at nothing to get this deal done. There’s just one catch: he needs Kennedy’s apples. At first, he thinks it’ll be as easy as pie to charm those apples right off her trees. But Kennedy isn’t falling for his tender charms or his wicked ways. When the negotiations start heating up, so do the feelings they have for each other. And it takes just one kiss to seal the deal….

My Review:

Last Kiss Of Summer is the first release in a new series from Marina Adair, and being a huge fan of Ms. Adair’s writing, I was beyond thrilled for this release.  Once again, Ms. Adair delivered a sweet, sexy, charming, and simply delectable story that I just adored!

From start to finish I loved reading Kennedy and Luke’s story.  From a heartbreaking end to Kennedy’s relationship to a beautiful new start in a town I would love to live in, I just couldn’t get enough.  Kennedy is a true survivor and always looks to the bright side of even the worst situations.  I hated the way her journey to a new life began but was so excited for her to get that new shot a wonderful life and, hopefully, love.  Luckily for Kennedy, she found Luke.  Luke the dependable, charming, sexy cider brewer with all that Kennedy is looking for and then some.  Of course there’s one teensy detail that may derail any type of relationship before it begins: apples.  Both of them are in need of the same apples for their livelihoods and that’s when the flirty frienemy banter begins and gets better and better.  The attraction between Kennedy and Luke was off the charts fun to read and when it turned from sweet to steamy I was a goner.  Of course, the apples bring more drama and a few bumps along the way, but in true Marina fashion, she gives us a truly movie worthy ending!

I also have to give mention to the supporting cast of characters, another area where Ms. Adair really shines.  From feisty aunts to new friends and a burly and sexy ex-hockey player turned bar owner, they’re all colorful and entertaining.  I already love this town and I can’t WAIT to read more!

Once again, Marina Adair delivers a beautifully written romance any romance reader is guaranteed to love!  Thank you, Marina, for giving us these amazing characters and their stories.

Kennedy rested her elbows on the counter and leaned forward. “You cook, clean, and make house calls? Be still, my heart.”

“I aim to please.” He dried off his hands and brought two steaming mugs of coffee to the counter. “Which is why I was trying to be quiet, so you could get another few minutes of sleep, before I surprised you in bed.” He grinned. It was a wicked grin. “Again.”

Luke had done more than surprise her last night; he’d spoiled her for other men. Sure, he was an incredible lover, but it was the tender moments in between that made her nervous.

This thing between them couldn’t last. She knew that. She also understood that if he was looking for something more permanent, she wouldn’t be the kind of woman to inspire that kind of commitment. She was unable to do it with her perfect match, or even her own mother. The one person who was supposed to love her unconditionally. Which left Kennedy painfully afraid that she was missing that elusive quality that led to forever.

Finding out that she was right, that she was unlovable, from a man who obviously had an incredible capacity to love, as she’d seen with his friends and family, would be too painful to survive. So she took the moment for what it was, committing to memory the warm aroma of the coffee, the way the sun cast a glassy haze over the kitchen, and the sleepy expression on his face that made him look softer. More relaxed. Like this was where he was supposed to be.

In this kitchen—with her.

Kennedy was becoming more attached—she could feel it. The way he treated her, the way he made her feel, even the way he looked at her, like right now, as if she were special. Which made her feel special.
