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.
The Last Kiss Of Summer is the first book in the Destiny Bay series and what a beautifully sexy and sweet way start to a new series. I smiled more than once while reading the Last Kiss Of Summer, I loved al the characters and what they brought to the book and for me that is rare, there is usually at least one that I complain about but not this time, I was smiling and laughing because of them all. The chemistry between Luke and Kennedy makes this couple one I loved to read about. I liked the way the author built up to their relationship, don’t get me wrong I love a good insta romance but sometimes that sweet slow build is what this book whore craves and this book satisfied that craving for me. The pace of the book was perfect, not overly rushed and not super slow, just that perfect pace to allow the relationship to build and grow.
This is the first book by Ms. Adair that I have read, and while I plan to read the rest of the books in this series I think I will be checking out her other books as well, so far I am impressed by what I have read so far. The Last Kiss Of Summer is one that I recommend to anyone looking for an overall good romance.
“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.
