IT STARTED WITH A KISS (Sequoia Lake #1)
IT STARTED WITH A KISS MARINA ADAIR
As a member of the Sequoia Elite Mountain Rescue team, Tyson Donovan has made a life out of cheating death and rescuing weekend warriors from the treacherous terrain. “The world is my home” is more than just a motto; it’s what scares off women who would otherwise try to tie him down. When his dad’s health lands the family’s adventure lodge in serious danger of going up in flames, he moves home—and quickly remembers why he left. Until he meets Avery, the irresistible new guide who makes him want to stay.
Tyson gives the inexperienced Avery a lesson in romance that her books could never teach her. And with her undeniable spirit for life, Avery shows Tyson the healing power of love. But with one misstep, everything comes crashing down, and they’ll both have to take the biggest leap of all—into the kind of adventure that lasts a lifetime.MY REVIEW:
When living large aren’t just words. Yes, you see and hear about the extremist the ones that are the thrill seekers or have death wishes. However, you choose to look at it there are different types. Then, there are those people like Avery Adams, 27.
You see Avery had spent much of her time in and out of the hospital and none of which she regrets or was bitter about. You see at first, she was there because her mom had to go, because her mom had a liver disease. Her mom’s liver was failing and she needed treatments a lot of treatments. Then, she needed a transplant.
Then, she was there because she was that rare case that got the same disorder as her mother. As she was put on the same donor list as her mother, her mother loses her battle with the disease and her kidneys fail. She is heartbroken, then her boyfriend leaves her because it wasn’t what he signed up for. Then right after the surgery, her father backs up far away from her since he had just lost the love of his life he had no more to give to his daughter. He was spent.
Luckily the town Avery lived in a woman Irene Donovan had started a grief group called “Living for Love.” So, when her mom introduced her to her friends in the group she loved them. But never than after was she alone. Her mom died and these women became everything to her. Especially, when she quit her job since she quit her job because the ex-boyfriend she had was the loan officer at the bank she worked at. Now, with almost her year anniversary coming up and she knew she needed an adventure.
Irene needed help so they merged to become each other’s, aides. You see Dale, Irene’s beloved husband was starting to forget important things. Which was causing huge business trouble. So, Irene had no choice but to ask for help. She knew Avery needed a job and with her knowledge of spreadsheets and organizational skills, she could help get them back on track. Dale kept telling her he would train her to do hikes which after several months had not happened. Making her wonder how she could ‘live out loud’ if she couldn’t even get on a baby trail.
When some tall, sexy, and kissable stranger rolls into town. She knew she hit the jackpot except there was that slight problem on how they met. He was wearing expensive hiking boots and driving one expensive ride. When she gets talked into a drink at the bar and he gets talked into making her a tiara for riding a mechanical bull. She fulfills a living wish from her wish book. How you ask? By kissing a stranger. Not knowing Ty isn’t just stranger. But the son that has been made to feel out of place by his father Dale Donavan, her boss.
Yeah, you read that right. Her boss! This is a funny story. Yet, there are several touching, heart pulling, moments that keep you on your toes for sure. So, worth the read. I give this:
