CHASING I DO by Marina Adair (The Eastons, book 1)
Release Date: June 7, 2016
Publisher: The Adair Group
I enjoyed this friends to lover’s story. The lead male character, Gage, has it all for me – hot, sweet, smart, considered the glue that holds his family together, and is great with kids. The lead female, Darcy, is likeable, beautiful, strong, runs a successful business, and is a single mom. Great chemistry between these two characters and I was rooting for them til the end. You will meet the rest of the Easton brothers as well as their non-likable (for me) mother. One of the highlights for me was the interactions between Gage and his brothers. Darcy’s daughter, Kylie, is adorably witty. Wonderfully written and emotionally filled story. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
“Cuz I brought my veil, just in case he wants to learn. Sometimes a twirl comes in handy.” – Kylie
Darcy Kincaid might be a runaway bride, but she still believes in happily ever after, which is why she’s devoted to helping couples orchestrate their perfect I do. Even though her fiancée turned out to be unfaithful and a big disappointment, Darcy walked away from her wedding fully committed—to her unborn daughter. Now, a single mom, it’s up to Darcy to secure her daughter’s future, which is why she’s invested her life savings into renovating Belle Mont Manor, Portland’s oldest, and nearly forgotten, wedding venue. So when Wedding Magazine offers her the cover for their June issue, in exchange for planning the wedding of a high-profile couple, Darcy thanks her lucky stars. Until the star’s best man turns out to be her ex’s brother… The last time Gage Easton saw Darcy, she was sneaking out the back door of her own wedding—destroying his brother’s life. No way is he going to entrust the gorgeous jilter with his biggest client’s special day, no matter how much in love with her he secretly was. Determined to take his client’s wedding elsewhere, he confronts Darcy, only to meet a toddler with Darcy’s blonde curls and the Easton blue eyes that has him renegotiating—the wedding for a chance to know his niece. But when a fun day in the park leads to warm family dinners, Gage finds himself stuck between his loyalty to his brother—and the two women who have stolen his heart.
