I think that I read Last Kiss of Summer by Marina Adair at just the right time. I didn’t realize how much I needed a romance read until I sunk into this book.
Kennedy is a bit of a pathetic character. Absolutely nothing has gone right in her life. Her saving grace is her backbone. Kennedy will not give up without one hell of a fight! She has a determination that has kept her on the straight and narrow when others in her family would have taken the easy road.
Luke is the quintessential good guy….except that he’s so focused on fixing his father’s financial mistakes that he slips a bit into the not-so-good-guy gray area. While I can certainly appreciate his drive and desire, he never stopped to ask wether anyone even wanted what he was working so hard to obtain. He felt a sense of obligation.
Last Kiss of Summer really hit on the small town vibe that I love. I honestly have to remind myself that this is fiction and as much as I loved the story, reality is it probably wouldn’t have worked out the same way.
I genuinely loved this book and I’m SO glad that I finally got around to it. It looks like there is a companion novel that follows this one. I’m sure it’s for Ali’s story and I can’t wait to spend more time with the folks of Destiny Bay!
On a last note, I loved Paula SO much! I wish she could be my therapist. She is Luke’s mother and just listening to her narration put me at ease. I would love to be able to call on her during times of tribulation!
