Book Review - Every Little Kiss by Maria Adair (Free on Amazon Unlimited)

ABOUT THE BOOK


There’s nothing that single mom Liv Preston won’t do if it means making her six-year-old son smile again. After a heartbreaking two years, her little family is due for some fun in the sun. She just didn’t expect to find it in the big, rugged, Search and Rescue hero next door—who shows her just how exciting, and sexy, life’s adventures can be.
As head of Reno’s K-9 search division, Ford Jamison knows what it takes to make life-and-death decisions on the fly. He doesn’t hesitate, doesn’t do regrets, and has never doubted his instincts—until he makes a promise that turns his world upside down. Desperate for redemption, he returns to Sequoia Lake, only to find himself face-to-face with his past…and the one woman he can’t have. Not when his secret would destroy her—and everything she holds dear.
For Liv, finding love once was a gift. Finding it twice seems impossible, until the moment Ford’s lips meet hers. Love doesn’t always come easy, but when it’s right, it’s worth fighting for…

REVIEW


This is the second book in the Sequoia Lake series, and can easily be read as a stand alone book, however, Liv and Paxton were introduced in the previous book and I had been very intrigued by their story and was glad they were front and center for this book.  I really enjoyed how Paxton's story played out and how Ford's relationship with him played into it as well as the character growth for Liz along with her son getting past the death of her husband and his father.  Notice how I am a paragraph into this review and I haven't even mentioned the romance between Liv and Ford?  That isn't because it wasn't important or well done, it is just because Adair write such interesting characters that there is so much more going on than just an unlikely romance, which is why I love this author.  

Anyone looking for a great story with a lot of romance and heart should read this book.


OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
