Forbidden Kisses
Blushing Bay #1

Goodreads // Goodreads Series

For years, Jack Sawyer’s family has been running their upscale seafood business like a finely tuned machine. But every machine breaks down eventually, and suddenly Jack needs a new office manager, a new kayak launch, and a new lease on life. Then Grace Donner shows up again. She’s smart, motivated, and perfect for the manager position, but if she’s anything like her mom, she can’t be trusted. And Jack has never been able to trust himself around Grace.

Grace hasn’t seen her former stepbrothers since their parents’ messy divorce, but she never forgot them—especially Jack. She misses being part of the big rambunctious Sawyer clan, and if there’s an opportunity to set things right, she means to do it. But she can’t ignore Jack’s irresistibly kissable lips, or the searing way he looks at her when he thinks she’s not looking. Their chemistry is more explosive than ever. And if the Sawyers can forgive and forget, anything is possible.




Annie Rains does it again!

This was one book I didn’t want to put down, which is definitely something I needed. I loved both of the characters, Jack and Grace.

Jack had his own set of problems, but it only contributed to how much I liked him. He wasn’t just a guy who wanted something different. He has had numerous tragedies strike, and he’s still kicking. He still goes after what he wants.

And Grace. Oh, I loved her, every aspect. My heart went out to her at various points throughout the book. She handles her mother’s illness with grace (pardon the pun 😛 ), and she went after what she wanted. I loved the way she inserted herself into a situation where she was unsure. It made her all the more likable.

Annie Rains’ writing and style is just what I needed after the rough weeks I’ve had. It was light and fluffy, and there was no shortness of cute. Forbidden Kisses tugged at my heartstrings and unravelled a good story about making amends from the past. Besides, the ex-stepbrother (is that a trope) really made me interested!
