Every Little Kiss by Marina Adair is contemporary romance at its finest. It is the perfect blend of flawed but brilliant characters, an engaging plot, sexy loves scenes, conflict, and is topped off with a scene stealer superdog! It had me flipping pages so quickly I could barely control myself. Not only did I love the dialogue between main characters Ford and Liv but I found myself laughing out loud at the scenes with Ford and his boss/friend Harris. So funny.
I didn’t get the chance to read the first book in the series yet, but I didn’t feel as though I needed to in order to enjoy Every Little Kiss. They seem to be connected by the town they live in and the characters. Ford and Liv’s story stood on its own. Ford is in Sequoia Lake to battle his demons. Liv is in Sequoia Lake because she wants her son, Paxton, to get to know his Dad who passed away a couple of years ago when Paxton was a toddler. His Dad and Liv’s deceased husband grew up in Sequoia Lake. She is surrounded with memories and finds it hard to move on. Enter Ford. He shakes things up quite a bit.
Adair entertains me from beginning to end with her stories. While Every Little Kiss is a heart warming romance, is has some real underlying emotions to it. Some of the things that tug at my heart are the loss and grief that the main characters feel in addition to worrying about what the future holds. There is also real joy and happiness along with passion. It’s fantastic. The romance is fun to watch, the pacing is great and I found myself not wanting it to end.
Every Little Kiss is a captivating romance with a hot, sexy, hero and a heroine that can hold her own against just about anyone. It’s a page turner from start to finish and will have you sighing happily at the end. I now want to go back and read the first book in the series!
