So many feels, loved Need You for Mine.

Every now and then you pick up a book and you know from the first chapter in this is going to be a good read, no slash that, a great read.
For me need You for Mine ticked all the boxes, my interest was held from start to finish and I didn't want to put it down.

I loved Harper and Adam, they were fun, passionate, stubborn, entertaining and the chemistry between them was SMOKING!


Watching Harper and Adam's relationship develop was so much fun to read.

I've loved this series from the beginning and Harper has been one of my favorites, so I was thrilled to finally get her story.

The chemistry between Harper and Adam is off the charts. I loved how they complimented and supported each other. It was fun to see their fake relationship turn into something real. Of course, seeing all of the other couples was delightful. The community in this series is nosy and it's one of the best parts.

Don't know what it is, but these light and airy stories set in St. Helena always are a nice read when I am busy or not feeling well or not able to concentrate. Fluff with a side of nice.
after finishing the story, I did enjoy it, just not as much as I was expecting. Probably one of those times where my expectations were too high.

Harper is the town goody two shoes that everyone loves to be friends with but... that's it.
She is used to getting the shit end of the stick in love. But she honestly doesn't let it get her down.

Adam, a firefighter, is used to being the town love 'em and leave 'em friends, Romeo. He's sex on a stick and he knows it. ...just the kind of hero who rubs me th

This is the third book by Adair for the Heroes of St. Helena series and so far my favorite. This book could be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the entire series from the beginning to understand these two characters a lot more.

Harper was one of my favorite characters from the beginning because she is unique and walks to the beat of her own drum. Living in this town it's hard to find someone for her to date because they all have pretty much friend zoned her all except for one man and

What a sweet escape! The characters of Harper and Adam are both delightfully endearing yet wonderfully real. Harper’s character, especially, is one not often written about - the girl-next-door who makes everyone feel loved and gives of herself unconditionally yet who everyone looks at as “just a friend”. She is written with such depth and sensitivity that she becomes the very reason this story works so beautifully.
Adam’s playboy-type should be yawningly typical but Ms. Adair allows us to see hi

Oh God!!! I was really waiting for Adam's story. He was unique and I fell in love with him since I met him in "Need You For Keeps" :)

"She had him at hello" and "He had her at hello"

Everybody in Main Street knows this except for them.


He is The Five-Alarm Casanova



A hot sexy firefighter who knows how to kiss, how to sweet-talk and how to get laid with just a smile.


"He isn't looking to be collected"

Or may be he is!!

She is everyone's best friend.

"Life is too short to be ordinary. And I want extraordinary."

A fantastic finale! I have come to love St. Helena over the last month and will miss this world. I will always think of this lovely setting and unique characters anytime I visit the wine country.

If you're looking for a light-hearted but well written romance series, I highly recommend St. Helena and this spinoff. I laughed, cried, and always felt as if love always wins when finishing each book.

I had such a good time reading Need You for Mine by Marina Adair! It was entertaining from start to finish. I don't know why I waited so long to read one of Adair's books, and I realized how much I was missing out. It is my understanding that Need You For Mine is the third book in the Heroes of St. Helena series, and while I can't wait to go back and read the first two books, I don't feel as though I had to read the others to get swept away in Need You For Mine.

How could you not love Harper Owens? She’s the nice girl that everyone wants as a friend - including the guys. Heck, I want her as a friend too! She has a personality I really liked and is truly an original! And then there is Adam Baudouin. He may be a hot. And a fireman. And sexy. Did I mention hot? But we all knew Adam loved (and left) the ladies just a bit too much. As drool-worthy as St. Helena’s 5-alarm casanova was, I really did not think he was worthy of our favorite Harper.

I have a question for my English-speaking friends Does this book’s name make any sense? Because I don’t get it.

This book is set in a small town, which is my absolute favourite romance setting. I’ve never lived in one and I don’t know if the situations that happen in the books are even real, but I treat them like fantasy settings; the shire doesn’t have to be real for me to know that I’d love to live there. Also it comes with the required grandma and old ladies that are a constant in th

I received a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. My opinion is my own.

Okay, so the first thing I want to say about Need You For Mine is please ignore the cover. I don't know what's going on there. The guy looks like a KGB officer on holiday, and, while the woman is less objectionable, she doesn't really evoke our main character, Harper.

Made me giggle, blush, and pull at my heartstrings!

Having read all the books in the St. Helena Vineyard series and the previous Heroes of St. Helena books, I was very much looking forward to reading Need You for Mine. Harper being paired with Adam, the hot firefighter Baudouin brother, proves to be an intense combination. There’s no doubt that these two share heated chemistry!

I adored Harper in the previous book, Need You for Always. She really does deserve her happy

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I can't believe I haven't read the first book in this series. I really enjoyed the second book and as soon as I read it, I swore I was going to get the first book and read that too. But I guess I got caught up in other books and blog tours that I was part of. Anyway, when this book was up for review as well, I grabbed the chance right away because I trust that the author would give me yet another good addition to

What a great book! Reformed bad boy Adam finally grows up and tries a real relationship. I was worried at first that Adam would never be able to redeem himself after all his bonehead moves. The author did a great job making me fall in love with him. And Harper is just the kind of girl you'd love to hang out with. She was awesome.

The only flaw in this book was how perfectly perfect the h and H were. Adam was the physical specimen of perfection with no flaws and every single woman in lust with him

Oh my goodness, what a hilariously romantic book this is. I kept giggling through most of it though my heart did break and I cried at one point. I guess I was too caught up in the story and that is just the greatest thing about Marina Adair's writing. You become a fly on the wall in her fictional world and watch the whole story unravel. I have followed this series from the beginning and even though I have loved each one, I have to say that this was the best.

Adam is one of those sweet talking men, “I’m a guy. Every solution includes sex,” he said, as if that were written on one of the tablets Moses brought down from the mount. “As for this not working out, your hand proves that wrong.” She looked down to find her palm had slid down that stone stomach of his, to tangle in his waistband." I really liked this book Adam was sweet, but stupid at times I loved him.

I almost, almost didn't finish the book and so I dragged myself till ending just so I wouldn't add another book to the pile of my did-not-finish books. It's okay but for a moment there it was kind of boring and too much thought bubbles that were kind of unnecessary, I think.

Need You for Mine is the third and final book in the Heroe’s of St. Helena’s series an off-shoot of the St. Helena’s Vineyards series. This series just got better with each book. Need You for Mine is everything I could ask for in the final book of a modern romance series. We have a wonderful heroine in Harper Owens. Although I thought Marina sort of beat to death how Harper was seen by everyone as a ray of sunshine that just lights up everyone’s lives and draws them to her. Seriously Marina we g ...more

First off, I am not a fan of Hallmark movies and when I read a romance novel, I expect the author to be comfortable writing about sex. That being said, if you love Hallmark movies, you'll love this book, since all it is is a Hallmark movie in book form. Then there was the fact that the author wasn't comfortable writing about sex at all. In fact, when referring to sex, it was called "cookies," since the female lead adores cookies. Harper and Adam have "cookies" many times, at least a ba
