Chasing I Do (The Eastons 1) by Marina Adair ~ Meet the Eastons + Review

Today I have the pleasure of having Marina Adair here to introduce you to the Easton brothers! There's a GIVEAWAY!

Five New Bachelors ~ Five Potential Book Boyfriends

New series are so exciting because we get to disappear into a new world, a new family, and a new set of characters all working towards finding their HEA. But the best part of a new series, is the men! And my new Eastons series has—count them with me—five alpha-brothers to fall in love with.

The first book in the series, Chasing I Do, releases today, and follows a once runaway bride who becomes one of Portland’s most sought after wedding planners. But when her former fiancée’s brother crashes one of her weddings, she discovers that sometimes it takes the Best Man to capture the runaway bride.

And who is this Best Man?

Gage Easton
Age: 29
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Dirty Blonde
Job: Sports & Celebrity Agent

This notorious sports and celebrity agent rocks his slacks and tie in that GQ way that says Wall Street badass. But his leather jacket adds a touch of bad boy to the businessman.
Gage has a serious thing for single mom, and runaway bride, Darcy Kincaid. And even though he is the Best Man to catch this sexy wedding planner—the groom she jilted once upon a time was his twin brother. Making him choose between loyalty and love…

Rhett Easton
Age: 31
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Dark brown
Job: Guitar prodigy

Rhett Easton isn’t just the greatest guitar player of this generation, he’s also People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive.  He’s strictly a new town, new woman kind of guy—happy to keep his life on the road—until he meets the one woman who makes him want to come home.

Josh Easton
Age: 35
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Brown
Job: Deputy assistant to the Mayor

Josh loves to work hard and play risky. Being the straight shooter of the family, doesn’t mean he doesn’t know how to have some fun—but he’s learned the hard way, never to mix business and pleasure.
With elections right around the corner, he is determined to take his career to the next level by promoting a campaign to improve police/civilian relations. Too bad the only relations he finds himself interested in, is a pint-sized trouble maker with a bombshell body and a habit of breaking all the rules.

Clay Easton
Age: 27
Eyes: Blue
Hair: dirty blonde
Job: NFL Star

Clay might be the youngest Easton, but this Baby Einstein is also the most level-headed. His ability to keep focus while in the storm, and think himself out of any situation, makes him one of the best running backs in the NFL. His moves on—and off—the field are legendary.
He likes his women young, his whisky aged, and his life uncomplicated. Until he meets the owner of the Air B&B he rents for the summer. She’s sexy, single, and—hot damn—she’ a cougar.
The best part? She doesn’t know who he is.

Owen Easton
Age: 33
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Brown
Job: Craft beer expert and bar owner

The hot head of the family, Owen knows his way around bar fights, bikes, and women. He also knows that his temper could be the one thing that is holding the family bar back from expansion. What he needs is a good girl to ground him—like his brothers have all found.
Too bad he finds himself falling for one who is trouble with a capital T. She even has it tattooed on her lower back.

For all of the Easton brothers, family comes first, business moves fast, and life is nothing more than a game of risk. They don’t mind breaking the rules or testing the limits, but when it comes to matters of the heart … they play for keeps.
And ladies, trust me, you’d want to be kept by any of these sought after bachelors.

Chasing I Do
Marina Adair
Series: The Eastons #1
Release Date: June 7, 2016

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.

Rating: 4.5 Stars-LOVED

The Eastons! This is a whole new set of brothers!

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from reading Marina Adair’s books, it’s that she does an awesome job at writing small town romances, one of my guilty reading pleasures! Chasing I Do is the first story in her brand new series set in Portland, Oregon and features a whole new set of brothers, The Eastons! Believe me when I say that you’re going to want to get to know each and every one of the five Easton brothers!

First up in Chasing I Do is Gage Easton. Gage and Darcy Kincaid have known each other for years. I liked that they’ve been friends for a while; however, their past took a tragic turn, and let’s just say that it’s been a few years since they’ve seen each other. Darcy has had to make some tough choices in life and work hard to where she is as wedding planner and owner of Belle Mont Manor. She does it all for her little girl. I absolutely adore her determination and mama-bear attitude! When Gage unexpectedly enters her life again in a huge way, she’s got to set some ground rules or risk getting hurt all over again.

I must say that I loved Chasing I Do! I thought the wedding theme is perfect for this particular story. Gage and Darcy are well-matched, and several scenes made me both tear up a bit and smile. This story was a wonderful introduction to the Easton brothers! I found getting to know this new set of characters delightfully refreshing. Although the ending wrapped some things up pretty quick, I was left wanting more, more, more!
