Not up to the standards that I expect from a Jill Shalvis novel. I loved Aubrey as a heroine, but wasn't a huge fan of Ben. I also hated the response that the people of Lucky Harbor had to Aubrey - it was small-town, close-minded, and judgemental. Not one of my favorites.

I loved how different of a heroine Aubrey was, it was refreshing. This was nicely paced, steamy, and believable.

In the town of Lucky Harbor, which seemingly has no shortage of incredibly handsome (and just slightly troubled) men, Shalvis continues to delight by keeping things fresh, expanding her cast of secondary characters, and giving readers the signature sweet and spicy scenes she is famous for.

Fans of the Lucky Harbor series will certainly enjoy watching the relationship of good bad boy Ben and bad good girl Aubrey develop, particularly as they themselves mature.

Jill Shavlis is an amazing author. I have read many of her books and this really is a great one. Love all the Lucky Harbor series, they are a great mix of funny, sweet and loving.

After a wrenching loss, Ben McDaniel tried to escape his grief by working in dangerous, war-torn places like Africa and the Middle East. Now he's back in his hometown and face-to-face with Aubrey Wellington, the hot-as-hell woman who is trouble with a capital T. Family and friends insist she's not the one to ease his pain, but Aubrey sparks an intense desire that gives Ben hope for the future.

Determined to right the wrongs of her past, Aubrey is working hard to make amends. But by far, the toughest challenge to her plan is sexy, brooding Ben - even though he has absolutely no idea what she's done . . .

Can this unlikely couple defy the odds and win over the little town of Lucky Harbor?
