Colors of Us (Book 1, The McAvery Brothers Series) by Sandra Bunino

About this Book:

This is an amazing first story in a three book series you are absolutely going to love! This is a New Adult Contemporary Romance. (Adult 18+)

“Everything she knew to be true fell apart. Then fell apart again…Michelle Willis is running from her past. What better place to hide than in the anonymity of New York City. Finding refuge in a tiny SoHo art gallery, she rebuilds her life one painting at a time.   A wrong turn sends Hunter McAvery on a crash course with disaster. He fights his own demons by following his big brother’s lead – drinking and bed-hopping his way through Manhattan.
A glance at Michelle’s self-portrait triggers emotions Hunter can’t tamp down. Driven to meet the artist, he discovers a fiery chemistry as their lives collide. But when their past threatens to tear them apart, can their love survive?”

My Five star Review:

I read this book back in September 2014 but since I wanted to put a review on my new blog I decided I would skim the book as a refresher before I actually began typing up the review.  I skimmed the first chapter smiling the entire time but once I began chapter 2, I was reading every word.  Next thing I knew I did a complete re-read.  This book will not disappoint you!

A chance meeting at a coffee shop brings two amazing characters together in a thoroughly entertaining love story.  Michelle is an artist trying to start over in the big city.  Hunter is a born and breed New Yorker trying to get his life back under control.  They become “friends” over peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and an art project Michelle’s working on for Hunter’s older brother Alex.  The McAvery bar is one of the main focal points in this book and Sandra invites you in with each of her words making you want to take up a stool and never leave.  The secondary characters pull you in and make you beg Sandra to tell you more about them.  (So happy Alex, Miranda and Liam will have their own stories.)

The chemistry between Hunter and Michelle feels so real it’s a joy to read.  I absolutely loved Michelle’s pink gloves but you’ll need to read the story to understand what I mean.  Both characters have difficult past they’re trying to overcome and they help each other along the way.

Alex’s McAvery’s story is next and I can’t wait to get more of the bar owner and Miranda.  You are going to love the glimpse you get of the Art Gallery owner.  She is a strong, independent, no nonsense, you don’t really want to be on my bad side, kind of woman.  I loved her immediately.  So stay tuned, Passion of Us is coming soon!
