“And for the record, I think stubborn is sexy on a woman.”
“You’re just saying that because you have your eye on my remaining cupcake,” she teased.
“I’d have my eyes on more than your cupcake, but you laid down the no-flirting rule.”

When Liv bought her late husband's childhood home, all she has in mind is for her six-year old son and herself move on. But she didn't expect the guy from next door would be of big help. Ford didn't expect to be part of Liv's life as well, especially that he's still being haunted by his past.
Packed with fun and sweet moments, this book is so well-written that I feel like I'm a part of Sequoia Lake, or rather I want to be part of it. I love the people in it. ...more
Liv and Ford’s past experiences and current situation just touched my heart along with Knox, Liv’s MIL and the rest of s ...more

If I have not said it before, shame on me, but I love the way Marina Adair writes. There is an easy quality to her stories and she hits just the right notes on the emotional scale. Her small town settings give us an opportunity to mingle with some well-meaning, but quirky characters. In my mind, I keep picturing television shows like Northern Exposure and the Bob Newhart shows. Every Little Kiss is book two in the Sequoia Lake se ...more
I'll admit I was a bit worried throughout the first half of the book. It kind of wandered around a lot. I could put it down and not even think about it (something I’m rarely able to do with this author's books). I also had trouble connecting (or really liking) Liv's character, as she was so short and closed off with those around her. Thankfully not ...more
I have really enjoyed some of Marina's other books, so I requested this off her her name alone.
I really liked Liv and Ford. She's sweet and he's stoic and together they just work. They're both stronger than they realize and it was interesting to see how they were able to work through the things they're each struggling with. Bullseye is hands down the best part of this story and stole every scene.
Plot wise, it was what I expected, to a point. I don't feel like it's a spoiler to say the ...more

Liv hasn't had the best past few years. Her husband died in a tragic accident, and her son doesn't really speak to anyone but her anymore. She struggles to balance being a nurse with being a single mother. New light appears to come into Liv's hometown in the form of a man named Ford, but what she doesn't ...more
And I love that all Marina's books involve busybody older ladies. She writes the best ones.

I really like this one. Sweet touching story about healing.
Paxton’s story was very touching and made you want to cry. Liv was so realistic. She wasn’t the perfect mom and was learning as she went and that is so real life!! Ford was sexy and hot.
Great heart warming story
There were so many things I absolutely loved about this book. And almost all of them had to do with the greatness that was Ford Jamison and his search-and-rescue dog Bullseye. I had one major fault with Ford: the fact that he wasn’t entirely truthful with Liv from the very beginning. But everything else about Ford’s kindness helped ease the stin ...more
Well, I finally picked it up and read it. And guess what? It was really good.
Olivia Preston is a young widow with a little boy who seldom speaks since the accident that took his father's life. He insists that a dog flew down from the sky and saved him, and Liv is at her wit's end trying to get him to understand that this couldn't ha ...more
I really enjoyed this contemporary romance. It’s the first book I’ve read by Marina Adair but I don’t think it will be the last. She has such a way of balancing the emotional wallop of the story with the quirkiness of the characters and the town. It never felt overdone or underdone. It was all just right. This romance centers around loss and its impact o ...more
I thoroughly enjoyed Every Little Kiss from beginning to end. The romance is sweet, the characters are delightful, and the plot is realistic. I’m so glad I had a chance to read this emotionally-charged story. The pacing is nice and steady. The ending is one of the best I have read in a while.
Liv is a g ...more
The strong single mother trope in romance novels is one of my favorites and Liv Preston is one of the best! She may be my favorite Adair heroine out of a pack of great heroine's. From the opening scene to the happy ending, Liv was smart and dedicated and the woman I want to be when I grow up. Since every good heroine nee ...more

Here, we learn about Liv and Ford. Liv is a single mother that lost her husband to a car accident, that also left her little kid not wanting to talk. It was heartbreaking to watch him go through with this, but also super lovely to watch overcome that and be cute little boy Liv knew he was.
I loved Liv and her desire to make a better life for her and her kid; it was hard to see how much she had to struggle though, but a lot of that came from the fact th ...more

I don't know how to rate this because I love some parts and have mixed feelings for some other parts but anyway I love Liv's love and devotion towards her son, Paxton. Paxton is the cutest, most adorable child it's hard not to love him. The bond between Ford and his dog Bullseye is also my favourite. I have a weakness. I also love Ford's flirty ways, as weird as it sounds. He's just a fun guy with a huge crush on the single supermom. The only qualm I had about this story is Ford's inabi ...more
