Kennedy has been kicked to the curb all her life and she's bound and determined to not let life get her down. Her grandmother helps give her a push with a new endeavor. She's excited and passionate about her new career. Luke has had his ups and downs in life, but for the most part has had things come fairly easily to him. He's pursuing his and his father's passion and Kennedy is just a stumbling block to what he needs. Until he gets to know her that is!
Their story is sweet, sad, frustrating and oh so delicious. Marina's words capture the reader and hold you captive until the very last word is read. Her characters are realistic and their relationships are too. She gives the reader all the feels and make you swoon for the hero. I love getting lost in her worlds and I thoroughly enjoyed this read. This was a great start to the series and I'm looking forward to more. Now, I need either an apple pie or a hard apple cider... It might be best if you have these items on hand as you read!
He's one bad apple she just can't resist . . .
Kennedy Sinclair never dreamed she'd own a pie shop and an orchard in a small town like Destiny Bay. But nestled between the mountains and the Pacific Ocean, it's the perfect place to cross something off her "Life's short so eat the icing first" list and start her life over from scratch. Her shop, Sweetie Pies, is famous for its hot, flaky apple turnovers and sinfully delicious deep dish pie. For Kennedy though, nothing is more enticing than the tall, strapping slice of temptation who keeps coming back for more.
Luke Callahan is determined to make his hard cider business a success. With his beloved father's cider recipe and the opportunity of a lifetime in his grasp, he'll stop at nothing to get this deal done. There's just one catch: he needs Kennedy's apples. At first, he thinks it'll be as easy as pie to charm those apples right off her trees. But Kennedy isn't falling for his tender charms or his wicked ways. When the negotiations start heating up, so do the feelings they have for each other. And it takes just one kiss to seal the deal . . .
