Marina Adair’s first book of Destiny Bay is a delightful read. This small town foodie romance is full of heart, humor, sexy, and romance that will sweep you off your feet.
After a hard break up, Kennedy heads to Destiny Bay to start anew. Trying her luck in a small bakery shop, she not only learns the ropes on how to run a bakery but wins the heart of this small town and its most eligible bachelor in town.
Luke is as determined as Kennedy to make his business thrive. And to make his goals, he will need to acquire the acres of apples that Kennedy needs for her bakery. It will get tricky and sticky before it gets sweet but the end result is worth the shot.
Seems like I can never get enough or Adair’s small town romance. I thought this book was to short and I wanted to read more about this town in general. Last Kiss of Summer has all of Adair’s signature characters I adore. I
easily related to Kennedy’s situation and her broken heart, and to be honest, been there- done that. Oh but to live in this small town full of people who would give you a second shot would be a dream. From the nosy neighbors, meddling grandmas and their sexy grandson, I’ll take them all. Again, I just couldn’t get enough of this book. Kudos Ms Adair for another great read.
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.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
