Blog Tour Review: LUCKY IN LOVE by Jill Shalvis


About the book:


Sometimes it’s good to be bad…


Mallory Quinn has had enough 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.

After reading LUCKY IN LOVE, I’m not really sure that Jill Shalvis can write a book that I don’t instantly love. I always think that the last one I read is my all-time favorite. LUCKY IN LOVE is the fourth book in the Lucky Harbor series. I was tickled when I read that this series was going to continue and even more excited when I saw who this book features – Mysterious Cute Guy!! I was so intrigued by this character with no name in the last Lucky Harbor book and loved that we were finally going to get to know him and boy was he worth the wait. Ty is sexy with a capital S! There is something appealing about his past – he’s damaged, but still totally lovable – that drew me in from the first scene. I had to know what had happened to him and what in the world was going to make him stop reliving his nightmares and find happiness. Of course, it’s Mallory who’s going to be just what he needs. I love how Mallory jumps right in to the bad boy thing even though she is the town’s good girl. She has a moment of being the “bad girl” and goes for it. These two work so well together that I was rooting for them from the moment they met (when he’s practically unconscious and she’s scared out of her mind and whacks him in the head with a cell phone). The humor I’ve come to expect is present in LUCKY IN LOVE and can Jill Shalvis write a sex scene – whew! If you haven’t read a Jill Shalvis book before walk…no run…to the bookstore today and BUY. THIS. BOOK! (Or you can enter my contest and maybe win a copy for yourself )

the book girl gives LUCKY IN LOVE a 5/5
