FROM THE MOMENT WE MET by Marina Adair (St. Helena Vineyard #5) #Review #Giveaway #print

St. Helena Vineyard Series #5
Marina Adair
Montlake Romance
Released June 1st, 2014


After years of designing her family’s grand wineries (and a few not-so-grand closets on the side), Abby DeLuca knows she has what it takes to be an award-winning interior designer. Newly single, Abby lands the career opportunity of a lifetime and refuses to let anything—or anyone—stand in her way. And that includes St. Helena’s most irresistible contractor, the man who makes her melt every time she sees him—even though he shattered her heart years ago.

A former NFL star, Jack “Hard Hammer” Tanner now spends his days doing contract work for the beautiful women of St. Helena—and his nights doing off-the-books projects in their bedrooms. Yet the more time the sexy tool-belt-for-hire spends with Abby, the more he longs to fix her broken heart. Soon, rekindled sparks fly. But when Jack’s dream job comes calling, he faces a tough choice: building in the big leagues, or building forever with his first love.

(US ONLY, Winner announced on Monday, June 9th)

I was thrilled to purchase FROM THE MOMENT WE MET, as a Kindle First Read last month, as I have been waiting to read baby sister, Abby DeLuca's romance after watching all of her brother's fall in love.  And lucky lady that she is...she got Jack "Hard Hammer" Tanner (I know...the nickname says it ALL).

Abby and Jack had a past, a "thing" in High School...which didn't exactly turn out great and a College "thing" which turned out even worse...and Abby wasn't planning to let Jack break her heart again...but she needs his "professional" help with a Project to kick start her career, but with her "meathead" brothers butting in, and the "ex" that just won't go away...even after his death...well...lets just say, these two getting together is far from easy!

I thought Abby and Jack were fabulous.  Adair writes with humor and heart, which are two things you can always expect from her St. Helena Vineyard series.  Gus was just so much fun, and he definitely added a special "charm" to the story.  But Jack is really the one to steal the show for me...he is just sexy with a capital "S" and a whole lot more.  I love when a hero is so into the heroine that he is willing to do whatever it takes (even blackmail) to get the girl!

Not only do I recommend this New Release, but I would encourage you to start at the beginning and get to know the whole DeLuca clan.  Who doesn't love a big Italian Family that will charm their way into your heart and keep a hold on those strings long after you have turned the last page.

I loved Kissing Under the Mistletoe - like holiday stories and the starting a new life trope.
