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 Watts was now a city girl. She liked living Sacramento and being a successful realtor. She didn't want to return to Blue Moon Bay, where she had grown up and where there had been so much heartache for her. But, her grandmother had died and left her in charge of the bed and breakfast in Blue Moon Bay. She would have to return for 30 days to sell her grandmother's inn and split the proceeds with her brother, Ben. Then, she was done with Blue Moon Bay for good.
The one thing she hadn't planned on was meeting Max Huntington on her first night back in Blue Moon Bay. He was very handsome and was a great kisser. How could she possibly have let herself believe in the legend she had grown up knowing about. Could it be possible to find your one true love and have forever with that person. Everyone in her life had left her. She wasn't used to having happily ever afters. She wasn't even sure she believed in them.
This story was a beautifully told, clean romance. There was chemistry between Wendy and Max and she began to believe in things she didn't think could be possible, like lifelong friendships and forever love.
I was given a free copy of this book one exchange for an honest review.
We begin the Kissed by the Bay series with Wendy and Max. Told entirely from Wendy’s point of view it’s hard to miss how much she does not want to be heading home to Blue Moon Bay. Her grandmother’s death is a devastating blow but not the only one she’ll need to face by coming home again. This is the place she had escaped from, the place that is filled with overpowering memories of being abandoned by her parents into her grandmother’s care. As the memories flow back, there is very little that gives her a warm feeling of homecoming, only a dread for the task ahead of her. Telling her brother, Brian, that they – she – would be selling the Inn was going to be difficult but she had no other choice, her grandmother and her will made that perfectly clear… but his reaction was going to break her heart all over again, she just knew it.
After the painful confrontation with Brian, she ran through the Inn to the solitude of the beach beyond. There she broke down, allowing all the anger, sorrow and pain to escape, at least temporarily. She was mortified to discover that her break down had been witnessed by the handsome man sitting on the beach a little bit away. To her surprise, the stranger offered comforting words and allowed her to unload her thoughts onto his shoulders. Max was staying at the Inn, but only for one night – one night where Wendy had let down all of her guards. For whatever reason she felt safe with him, and as they stood by the plaque that told of the Legend of Blue Moon Bay – she kissed him or he kissed her, who moved first doesn’t matter what does is that perfect feeling of coming home – even if it couldn’t be true forever.
Every Little Kiss is, at times, the bittersweet story of a young woman who thought by leaving her past behind she would find a life that was full and rewarding. And maybe it could have been if she didn’t also cling to the hurts, pain and anger of the past so deeply. Wendy may have become a vastly successful realtor, but she soon begins to realize that her success has been bought at a price. She has in fact done exactly what she is so angry at her parents for… she’s abandoned her brother, her grandmother and her circle of best friends in order to gain her escape. It is definitely a bittersweet lesson that she will take a very long time to actually learn since she will continue to deny her actions as the same as what was done to her.
What we learn of Max is only through their conversations, interactions and Wendy’s thoughts. What we do learn is Max is a powerfully successful man who is learning how to carve out a home for himself in a place he instinctively calls home with a woman who is everything he needs. It’s going to take that woman a bit of time to realize his worth and that he’s telling the truth. But when she does, life will open up with all kinds of possibilities.
This is a story where on one hand you’ll understand completely why Wendy feels as she does. You’ll also want to sit her down for a hug, a cup of that coffee she so loves and give her a loving but stern talking to. It’s almost painful to watch her come out of the woman she became into the woman she could be. It has to be painful or it wouldn’t matter so much, I believe.
I enjoyed every moment of the journey with Max and Wendy. A small town that I already love, with all the fun and quirkiness I expect. Secondary characters who come alive off of the page, and I know that their tales will soon be told. What’s not to love about the start of this new series. I can’t wait to continue… and I can since the next story is already downloaded. *wink* Indulge yourself and simply enjoy some time in Blue Moon Bay.
