I am so excited on being part of the Lucky in Love Tour. Jill Shalvis has a special place on my bookshelves and my Kindle :), today I am reviewing her latest release in the Lucky Harbor series: Lucky in Love.
Paperback: Amazon | B&N
Ebook: Kindle | Nook
Mallory Quinn has had enough of playing it safe. As a nurse and devoted daughter, she takes care of everyone but herself. And as the local good girl, she's expected to date Mr. Right. But for once, she'd like to take a risk on Mr. Wrong. And who could be more wrong than Ty Garrison? The mysterious new guy in town has made it clear that he's only passing through, which suits Mallory just fine. Besides, his lean, hard body and sexy smile will give her plenty to remember once he's gone . . .
For the first time in his life, Ty can't bear to leave. Helping this sexy seductress-in-training walk on the wild side is making him desire things he shouldn?t?including leaving the military for good. As their just-for-fun fling becomes something more, Mallory and Ty wonder if they could really be this lucky in love. After all . . . anything can happen in a town called Lucky Harbor.
Lucky in Love is the 4th book in the Lucky Harbor Series. For those who know I am an avid Jill Shalvis fan, you won't be surprised when I tell you I absolutely LOVED this book. (((SIGH))
We finally get to meet the Mysterious Cute Guy!! We learn that Ty, a former Navy Seal, is recuperating in Lucky Harbor not only from physical injuries but from emotional wounds as he was the only survivor of the copter crash that killed the rest of the squad.
Mallory Quinn, is a nurse and has always played it safe. Mallory is ready to break out of the mold, walk on the "wild side". And if "luck" ((no pun intended) would have it, Mr. Wrong appears at her feet during a storm. She comes to his aid after he is injured during a snow storm. As he lays in and out of consciousnesses, her friends devise a plan for Ty to be Mallory's date at an upcoming charity auction. As fate would have it, Ty didn't remember "the date" but he shows up anyway.
The rest of the book is filled with their on and off chance encounters until they finally realize their love for one another , that they both are worthy of happiness and love in their life.. Jill Shalvis does another awesome job, building the tension between the two characters and when they do connect it is a steamy hot combustion. Jill does it again with this book, the story line is refreshing and I simply could not put it down. Although the setting is in Lucky Harbor, the characters from the previous books are not secondary characters. This book can be a stand alone if you have not read any other the first three books in the series.
The book give you a glimpse of tension between Amy and Matt, they will be the featured couple in "At Last". There is a must read for all Jill Shalvis readers. She is always on my auto buy!!
I would love to hear from Jill Shalvis fans: tell me why you love the Lucky Harbor series. Please comment below...
