Marina Adair’s Need You for Keeps will capture your heart in every sweet possible way. It was funny, heartwarming and sexy. If the heroine and hero didn’t make you swoon over their romance, their pets and their sweet personalities will.
“Shay Michaels was unpredictable, unapologetic, and a startling breath of fresh air.”
She is, indeed. Shay is a kind and a very sweet person. She has a big heart and there is not one animal in need she would turn away. Heck, she would do almost anything for them. As said in the quote, I find her to be a fresh breath of air. She is a t-shirt kind of girl, nonchalant, and she did what she believed was right. Damn the consequences. Though sometimes it got her too more trouble and then anything else.
“[Noah Boudin had] become a deputy because protecting and serving was who he was. At his core…he’d signed on as a deputy determined to make a difference, do his duty, and hopefully find some kind of peace.”
If you’re familiar with this series, you’ll know that Noah is Frankie’s Brother. He was a big part in Frankie’s book, Autumn in the Vineyard, which is the third installment of St. Helena Vineyard series. Even then you will see what kind of person Noah is. This deputy is a stand up kind of guy and a sexy one to boot. A big pleaser and more than willing to help anyone who needs him. Of course, while making sure everyone abides by the law.
Speaking of the law, it’s the very thing that will make Jonah’s life very interesting. The “troubles” Shay brings to St. Helena will keep him on his toes. Keeping his job and personal opinion separate will be a hard one to deal with but it was fun watching him squirm.
“The women of St. Helena would do anything to get their hands on St. Paws’ extended edition Cuties with Booties calendar.”
These women of St. Helena were fearless when it came to the cute and sexy calendar. Why wouldn’t they? Not only it contained pictures of cute animals but a few hunks of the community. It’s a big hit earning plenty of money to help Shay’s cause. It was hilarious how the young or old made such a big deal of them. Hell, I’m hoping Adair would come up with this calendar for purchase. I do wish to have seen more of the DeLuca family *cough* the DeLuca men*cough*. I have to admit though Adair came through and delivered. I’m loving the Boudin family. I’m very excited especially for Dax the “weapon of mass destruction” and Adam the “resident boob expert[‘s]” books.
Marina Adair excels in keeping her small town a big community. It’s standard for everyone to know each other, to have the meddling neighbors and the whole town knowing each other’s business. Need Your for Keeps is just that and if you like small town reads, I recommend to start this series.
