SPOILER - I thought the heroine was a bit immature and some what of a drama queen. Everything was so emotional, even petting the dog. She really didn't do it for me. She seemed to be "hurt" by everything that everybody did whether intentional or not,. I just got sort of tired of her dramatics. I don't want to discourage anyone from reading the story because it has lessons of judging others, forgiveness, etc,. So it can be some good lessons to learn.,
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is just my opinion, noting more, nothing less.
Wendy is scared of love, she’s afraid to get too close to people. Her parents left her with her grandma all those years ago, Wendy has yet to get over the pain. Max just so happens to find himself staying at the inn that belonged to Wendy’s late grandmother. Max stirs something inside Wendy that she’s afraid to admit to herself. She realizes her feelings for him are more than platonic but she’s too afraid to act on them. While staying in Blue Moon Bay, Wendy realizes that no one is perfect, love isn’t perfect and that’s okay.
This is the first book in the Kissed by the Bay series but it reads as a stand alone. I adored Wendy and Max’s story. It had me laughing, crying and it made me giddy. I really fell in love with the town, the legend and all the people in the story. It makes me want to visit and stay and the inn, while I sit on the beach and watch the waves.
This is definitely more of a romantic drama than a romantic comedy, making me imagine this story as perfect for one of those Lifetime channel movies. There were some real themes addressed in this book of abandonment issues and loss of a loved one. Wendy is helped by Max to conquer her fears and to stop running away from her past so she can find her home. Max is the ultra dream guy with how stable and steady he is, being that shoulder for Wendy to lean on. I really wanted to learn more about her brother Brian, he was such an interesting character. Thankfully there is a book, The Sweetest Kiss, about him later in the series!
Max was a guest at the Blue Moon Bay inn for a business trip, but he soon wanted to stay and call it home. He didn't expect to like the place, the beach, the people. What made him fall in love was the legend of the starcrossed lovers who kissed by the bay. He thought the legend might soon come true when he found the one he wanted to kiss under the blue moon. Problem was, the woman had no intention of staying nor coming back.
I must admit, I had a hard time liking Wendy. Well, she'd been hurt when she was a child after their gallivanting parents left them to their grandma's inn and never came back. As a kid, being abandoned was a big deal and she would never forgive them for that. No matter how many times I yelled at my Kindle to tell Wendy to move on, forgive and forget, be considerate, Wendy was stubborn and hard-headed. No wonder she grew up to be boring, brooding, annoying. I was ready to give up on her, but Max changed my mind. Somehow, this young, passionate hunk slowly entered my heart and stole my breath away. A lover of nature, a believer of legends, a man around town, a dog's best friend, what more could a woman want?
In the end, I found myself smiling and sighing. A tale as old as time definitely made this story captivating. Every Little Kiss shared by the characters made my night. Susan Hatler made me daydream again! I was kissed by the bay and fell in love!
