Review: Last Kiss of Summer by Marina Adair

by Marina Adair

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: 3.5 Stars

I'm a sucker for a small-town romance, so I jumped on the chance to read this. I loved that Kennedy left a cheating boyfriend behind to start fresh in a quaint town running an established pie show. I was instantly drawn to Luke- witty banter is my love language, so he was an instant like for me. I also liked that their romance was not insta-love, but some of the secrets Luke was keeping from Kennedy were off-putting for me. I found I was nearing the end of the book wondering if things would be wrapped up in time. Honesty is a big thing for me, so I had a hard time with that part of the story. I did like how the story ends and will be watching out for future books in the Destiny Bay series.
