ARC Review! Forbidden Kisses By Annie Rains

The USA Today bestselling author of the Hero’s Welcome series introduces a trio of swoon-worthy North Carolina brothers fighting for love in this novel of sand, sea, and seduction.
For years, Jack Sawyer’s family has been running their upscale seafood business like a finely tuned machine. But every machine breaks down eventually, and suddenly Jack needs a new office manager, a new kayak launch, and a new lease on life. Then Grace Donner shows up again. She’s smart, motivated, and perfect for the manager position, but if she’s anything like her mom, she can’t be trusted. And Jack has never been able to trust himself around Grace.

Grace hasn’t seen her former stepbrothers since their parents’ messy divorce, but she never forgot them—especially Jack. She misses being part of the big rambunctious Sawyer clan, and if there’s an opportunity to set things right, she means to do it. But she can’t ignore Jack’s irresistibly kissable lips, or the searing way he looks at her when he thinks she’s not looking. Their chemistry is more explosive than ever. And if the Sawyers can forgive and forget, anything is possible.

I loved Grace and Jack. From the first page you knew these two were going to be fun to get to know. Grace is the kind of person who would give the shirt off her back to the ones she loved. She proves that with taking care of her mom. Encouraging Jack to go after his dreams. She's strong and independent and very determined to make things right between the family she once was apart of and the family that is just her and her mom. I admire her will and determination actually. I think everyone, myself included could learn from it.

Jack is kind and generous and he wants to make his family happy but at the same time he doesn't want to let his dreams fall to the wayside. He also wants to honor his best friend because they both had the same dream of building and not being fishermen. I understood his reluctance where Graces mom was concerned. There was bad blood after all. And his willingness to overcome his hatred for the woman he loved mom was very commendable. He is a true gentleman.

I thought Grace and Jacks story was the best way to start this new series. It payed down a great foundation to build on with the rest of the characters. And I can not wait to see how everything turns out. And I want to add how gorgeous the cover for this book is. Can't wait to see how the other covers turn out.
