Publisher's Summary

With a kidney transplant behind her, Avery Adams is determined to channel her inner adventurer and explore everything life has to offer. Only problem is, the closest she's ever come to a real-life adventure was sixth-grade science camp. So to seize the summer in her rustic Sierra Nevada town, she takes a job as a guide at the local adventure lodge. But Avery doesn't realize her biggest challenge will register at six-plus feet of rugged good looks and alpha-male charm.

As a member of the Sequoia Elite Mountain Rescue team, Tyson Donovan has made a life out of cheating death and rescuing weekend warriors from the treacherous terrain. "The world is my home" is more than just a motto; it's what scares off women who would otherwise try to tie him down. When his dad's health lands the family's adventure lodge in serious danger of going up in flames, he moves home - and quickly remembers why he left. Until he meets Avery, the irresistible new guide who makes him want to stay.

Tyson gives the inexperienced Avery a lesson in romance that her books could never teach her. And with her undeniable spirit for life, Avery shows Tyson the healing power of love. But with one misstep, everything comes crashing down, and they'll both have to take the biggest leap of all - into the kind of adventure that lasts a lifetime.

    "Great read and listen.."



    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 memory journal.

    And then, Ty, who had snuck out when he was 17 to climb a mountain and his brother who followed him fell and was killed and that left Ty steeped in guilt for a lot of years. Ty came home from Monterey to help his parents but soon discovered his father was suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s. And that’s where he met the office manager, Avery. And what Avery did to Ty was just awesome. The way she changed the way he saw things, the love that grew between the two was so awesome.

    There were a couple of explicit sex scenes in this book but it was romantic sex not erotic.

    And the F-bomb was used 21 times.

    As to the narration: This was my second time listening to Renee Raudman and she did a great job, as she did before. The voices were terrific and she reads with awesome emotions. I’ll be buying the next book in this series in two days.

    "a WONDERFUL LOVE STORY"

    This was a beautiful, heart tugging love story. the story was funny at times but so moving, with life stories to teach us, to live each day. I loved Tyler and Avery and the other wonderful characters in the book. The narrator did a very good job! thumbs up to the author!

    "A splendid small town romance!"
    Any additional comments?

    It Started With a Kiss is the first book in Marina Adair’s new Sequoia Lake series. Set in a small town in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, this book will splendidly satisfy romance readers everywhere who enjoy seeing love bloom surrounded by the great outdoors.

    Having had a successful kidney transplant, Avery Adams is eager to climb a mountain. There’s a specific reason why she wants to hike up a particular mountain, and she’s not letting her inexperience get in the way. Avery is Sequoia Lake Lodge’s newest adventure coordinator and anxiously wants to be trained on the trails. Tyson Donovan has reluctantly returned to his hometown. He has painful reasons to stay away, but meeting Avery might make it difficult to leave after he helps out with the family business.

    As an avid hiker, I connected quickly with both Avery and Tyson and their love for the outdoors. Avery has overcome some major obstacles in her life. Her zest-for-life attitude is adorably infectious. I think she enters Tyson’s life right at the perfect moment, as he’s in need to deal with some heavy things that have happened in his past. I was absolutely smitten with how their story played out. I also enjoyed getting to know all the secondary characters, and I’m very much looking forward to reading their stories in the next books in this series.

    If it’s any indication how much I admired It Started With a Kiss, I listened to the audiobook immediately after reading the book. Renee Raudman narrates most of Marina Adair’s books, and I was delighted that she voices this particular one. I always find her narrations quite enjoyable, clear, and with just the right amount of emotion.

    I’ve read all of Marina Adair’s romance books to date. I must say that It Started With a Kiss lands itself as one of my favorite books she’s ever written. Not only is the romance fun and engaging, but also the plot highlights relationships such as mother-daughter, father-son, and friendships that tug at your heart. You’ll be left feeling satisfied and hopeful!
