    1. Holding Out for a HeroWhere have all the good men gone.Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?.I need a hero I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the nightHe's gotta be strongAnd he's gotta be fast.Through the wind, and the chill, and the rainAnd the storm, and the floodI can feel his approach like a fire in my bloodI'm not sure Marina Adair didn't lift the lyrics of this famous Footloose soundtrack song to mold the plot to the novel that kicks off her new Sequoia Lake series. Serio [...]


    2. I've been a fan of Marina's words for a while now, so I requested this without even reading the synopsis.I loved Avery and Ty. She's sweet and charismatic. He's charming and maybe a bit stubborn. Together they're adorable with chemistry that is off the charts. And there's a great cast of characters here; I can't wait to see who is next in the series.The plot was a bit angstier than I was expecting, but it was enjoyable. I loved the tension Avery's kidney created and the external conflict was not [...]


    3. Coffee Dates with It Started With A KissFirst Date: I absolutely love the setup for how Tyson and Avery meet. Avery is such a unique, colorful character and I immediately wanted to be her friend. Adair transports us to a resort town in the Sequoia Lake area. You will adore the small-town and Adventure Lodge. Tyson is a member of the Sequoia Elite Mountain Rescue team but is home after hearing the lodge is in trouble. Right away I was pulled into their story from the surprises to the tension.Seco [...]


    4. Adair always amazes me with her writing so of course over each series she delivers the books and characters always get better. When I saw she was coming out with a new series I knew automatically that I had to get my hands on it and I'm so glad I read It Started with a Kiss.Avery and Ty were a delightful couple from the very beginning. They had such great chemistry and the way they fed off each other's feeling was awesomely written. Both found a connection with the loss each of them shared. Had [...]


    5. This is the first book that I've read by Marina Adair. I'm not totally for sure if I'm a fan or not something just missed the mark with me on this one and I can't quite put my finger on it. When you start reading, you're dropped into Avery's life after she's had this life-altering kidney transplant. It's made abundantly clear that Avery has a new lease on life. And that's great! This chick is learning to live in the moment and more power to her. But even knowing that her character didn't seem [...]


    6. “I’d rather take the leap and fall than spend the rest of my life looking out windows.” I loved this emotional and sweet romance!! It was such an amazing book filled with so much heartbreak but also so much hope. “The tin man was just metal without his heart,” she said, mainly for her own ears. “And heart is my superpower.”Avery was a fantastic heroine. Losing her mother to kidney failure and now after her own kidney transplant taught Avery that life is precious and she’s determi [...]


    7. ARC ReviewOriginally posted at Scandalicious Book ReviewI do not read a lot of small town romance, but sometimes I get a desire for a story that is sweet, pure and full of sunshine. When the craving hits, Marina Adair is one of the authors I go to read. Her books just do it for me. Of all of her works I have read, this one is extra special. Yes, it has that community feel. The town of Sequoia Lake is important to the story and the town’s people are the color that makes the story vibrant. Howev [...]


    8. 4.5 starsAnother great read by Marina Adair, I loved It Started With a Kiss.I enjoyed the storyline, my attention was held all throughout the book. It warmed my heart watching the relationship develop between Avery and Tyson, they had great chemistry and both were likable/entertaining characters. They truly were perfect for each other.Overall, a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon, I highly recommend this book. *Thank you to Montlake Romance via Netgalley for the advance copy*


    9. Avery Adams is wanting to live her life differently now. Not just because she is 27 but also because she has had a kidney transplant and she is tired of not living. Now she has left her comfortable life like some people would think. Now she has gotten herself a job at an adventure lodge in the Sierra’s. Thinking everything is going as planned and it was until she ran into Tyson Donovan who is a member of the elite mountain rescue team. When he goes on a hike with her when they return he surpri [...]


    10. I really enjoyed this one. I love a book with a strong heroine and Avery was fantastic. She's recovery from a kidney transplant 10 months ago and living life to the fullest. While she was sick, she decided she was going to live life and that's what she does. She's fearless and is completing her wish journal - wishes for those who never got them. One of her wishes in the wish journal is to kiss a stranger and she does - only it turns out the stranger ends up being Ty, the hero of this story and a [...]


    11. Just about 3 Stars. There is just something missing in this book. I wish I could say exactly what is missing that I can’t help. Avery Adams wants to live out loud after a kidney transplant she has a memory journal to grant wishes that others who were in her position never will have the chance to do. Climb Sierra Point just like her mother did. What she lacks in experience she makes up in with courage, stubbornness and a zest for life. While coming back from a client and Avery being stuck in th [...]


    12. What an amazing book to start my year and a great start to this new series. Adair set the standards high with this heart warming romance. It’s her best work yet! Adair will will bring out all kinds of emotions specially sympathy if not empathy for the characters.This book tackles real life struggles you can relate to. Ty goes back home to help his aging parents with their boating company but this also means having to visit emotional struggles he has avoided since the loss of his brother. It wi [...]


    13. Marina Adair has become a must read author for me, so I was very excited to see that she was beginning a new series. It Started with A Kiss is the first book in her Sequoia Lake series.After a life changing surgery, Avery Adams wants to live a little so she takes a job as an adventure guide for the summer. I always enjoy the heroines in Ms. Adair's books, but Avery has to be one of my favorites so far. Not only was she determined to live all of her life, she was also determined to see the good i [...]


    14. I loved Avery, that girl could make a bad situation feel a little easier, well, with the help of Ty's actions, “all I can think about is that you’re practically naked in the middle of the highway, so I think I’m good,” she teased, and he leaned up and kissed her while he stepped into his dry suit. " I loved the start for this new series! It's looking promising with the new characters I've met, this book was so hearfelt and heartwarming.


    15. Wow! A simple love story that I enjoyed very, very much. There was joy, sadness, love, an old story of death, guilt, and Avery’s “live out loud” attitude. I have never read a book where anyone had a better outlook on life. This woman wasn’t afraid of anything because since her kidney disease had made her suffer for so long, then a kidney transplant she didn’t know whether it would last a day or twenty years, just made her fearless. You couldn’t help but love Avery. And I loved her me [...]


    16. Marina Adair is known for writing books with humor, heart, hot guys, and fun older characters, cheekily-named shops, and and a hard-earned happily ever after. It Started With A Kiss was exactly what I want from a Marina Adair book. I absolutely love a book that can make my eyes water on one page and have me laughing on the next. This one was a surprisingly emotional read, but it was laced with Marina's typical humor and heart which helped temper the tears I was on the verge of so many times.From [...]


    17. 3.5 Stars I liked a lot of things about this story, but in the end it was missing something. The hero & heroine were likable characters and I loved the small town setting. I can't identify why it wasn't a winner, maybe it was too sweet.With that being said, it was a decent read/listen. The narration was well done, and the plot was interesting. For those with KU it's available as a free read & listen, give it a try, YMMV.


    18. Avery Adams can't help but appreciate life, not after undergoing a kidney transplant. Her new plan for life is to live it loud, knowing that each day could be her last. Quitting her job and starting over is her first step, but she never realized how hard being an adventure guide could be when she accepted the job. Still, she's not about to let her desire to channel her inner adventurer get the best of her. Can she prove to Tyson Donovan that she has what it takes to be one of the best assets the [...]


    19. In It Started With a Kiss by Marina Adair, after sickness and heartbreak, Avery is now living her life to the fullest - and part of that is her job at an adventure lodge. Another big part of that is her 'bucket list', and I think this part of Avery is what warmed me the most. She's living dreams for not only herself, but for others who can't. When she meets Tyson, and checks off part of her list, she has no idea who he is or how much things are going to change. Tyson is back in his home town at [...]


    20. **4-4.5 stars** I'm always excited to start a new book by Marina Adair and this first book in her new Sequoia Lake series definitely has me looking forward to future books in this series.One of my favorite parts in the book was how Avery Adams and Ty Donovan meet for the first time. It had me laughing out loud and I just knew I was going to love these two characters.After surviving a kidney transplant, Avery is ready to live life to the fullest. She's not going to let fear or anyone stop her fro [...]


    21. I've fallen in love with these new series from Marina Adair. Ms. Adair's very descriptive writing painted a beautiful picture of the small Sierra Nevada town that is the setting for this book. The characters of Tyson and Avery are both very intriguing. Tyson is a very physical and dedicated member of a search and rescue team but has to put his career on hold while he returns home to help his family save their adventure lodge. Avery is a young woman trying to live life to the fullest. Her history [...]


    22. I feel like I'm a broken record when it comes to reviewing Marina Adair's books but they are just that good. I will warn you that this book brought tears to my eyes but it was so good! I loved both Ty and Avery's characters from the very start. Both characters have backgrounds that makes your heart break for them and have you rooting for them to get their happily ever after. It's not smooth sailing but so satisfying watching them each overcome the stumbling blocks in their life.Their romance was [...]


    23. A charming small town romance, set in the rugged beauty of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The meet cute between their heroine and hero, is delightful and leads to some hilarious situations, which I have come to expect from Adair's books. I really enjoyed how both of the main characters pushed each other to be more adventurous in their own lives. A heartfelt and suspense filled read, with plenty of passion. Thanks Netgalley for the free review copy, in exchange for an honest review.



    24. 4 1/2 Wow what an emotional read at the end! Dang I am still crying with a buttload of snotty tissues around me.I started listening to this one in the car on the way to work. It as interesting but just seemed to drag at times. I just wanted it to get to the point. It picked up around 60% and then I didn’t want to wait till I got in the car I wanted to see what was going to happen, so I read the rest.Lots of emotion and how worrying about life instead of living your life isn’t living at all. [...]


    25. 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 [...]


    26. Wow! This was a great book. Avery is amazing. She is a strong woman with a generous heart. Tyson is troubled by the past, but is trying to do the right thing by everyone. There are family issues and some serious lack of communication, but in the end it all turns out. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a meaningful romance. It isn't angsty, but it sin't feel good all the time either. It is about people. Some who know themselves, and some who are just finding themselves. Plus, you go [...]


    27. This was a cute easy read, which was perfect since i was on vacation! i loved the chemestry between the two main characters, and i LOVED that you got a bit of the male sides perspective, which i feel like we never get enough of! A bit over the top with the sex scenes, but overall i really enjoyed this book!

    29. I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review.Avery Adams has been dealt a rough hand in life. After a kidney transplant almost a year ago, she is living her life to the fullest. Well as full as her doctors will allow. Being diagnosed with kidney disease, the same disease that took her mother, she found a group of women the has helped her deal with the pain of loss.
