I had such a good time reading Need You for Mine by Marina Adair! It was entertaining from start to finish. I don’t know why I waited so long to read one of Adair’s books, and I realized how much I was missing out. It is my understanding that Need You For Mine is the third book in the Heroes of St. Helena series, and while I can’t wait to go back and read the first two books, I don’t feel as though I had to read the others to get swept away in Need You For Mine.
Adam and Harper are the stars in Need You For Mine and what stars they were. I adored both of their personalities. Harper is a rock star. From how she handles herself when she was joyful and challenged professionally to how she held up when her heart was broken. She taught me a lot about being a better person. I fell for Adam right away, too. There was so much more to him than what the public saw and was pulling for him too.
Need You For Mine was so much more than just a contemporary romance story. We get to watch two characters mature individually and grow as a couple. The chemistry between the two was palpable and the intimate scenes were hot. From their first kiss to their last one in the book, I was hooked.
Harper’s grandmother, Clovis and her friends were a hoot. I so loved that senior crowd. Meeting characters from previous books, such as Adam’s siblings and their fiances and wives, sure makes me want to read the other stories in the series. That is what I love most about a series – following characters into other books. If you are looking for a fun contemporary romance with well developed characters and an enjoyable plot, give Need You for Mine by Marina Adair a try!

A bad boy. A good girl. And one hot, wild romance.
Every red-blooded single male in St. Helena wants Harper Owens . . . as a friend. Despite her efforts at seduction, Harper seems to have good girl written all over her. The only guy with a knack for unleashing her inner vixen is firefighter and resident rule-breaker Adam Baudouin. Agreeing to a faux-mance could help him secure a promotion—and save her grandmother’s lingerie shop. But playing with fire has consequences. Especially when the flame comes courtesy of St. Helena’s own Five-Alarm Casanova . . .
On the surface, Harper is all milk and cookies. Who knew that beneath those quirky art-teacher outfits was a bombshell body wrapped in sinful lace? None of Adam’s quick-and-easy hookups have prepared him for a connection this extraordinary. First he has to convince her to trust the town’s most notorious playboy. Even tougher—he’ll have to trust himself to be the real-life hero this warm, sexy, and wonderful woman deserves.
