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?

First Line(s): There was one universal truth in Lucky Harbor, Washington- you could hide a pot of gold in broad daylight and no one would steal it, but you couldn't hide a secret.

My Review:  Jill Shalvis is my number one go to author.  I have said this before and I will say it again and again. She is a sure thang! You want hunky guys? Cool down to earth female characters? Real, light, funny stories? You get all of those things in anyone of Jill Shalvis' novels. Go ahead pick any of them up and prove me wrong.

Ben and Aubrey are each others perfect ying to the others yang. They couldn't be anymore different but that is what makes this story line seem so real and honest. Both have things in their pass they are trying to work through and neither wanted a relationship but this story proves that things happen when we least expect them.

I'll close with this statement, if Lucky Harbor really existed, I'd book my one way ticket to there like yesterday.

All the Lucky Harbor novels could stand alone but you would be missing out on such a wonderful series if you go out of order, I promise you wont be sorry,

My Rating:  photo 4rating-1.png

The original Silent Hill adaptation remains chanel outlet notable only because it let Sean Bean survive to the closing credits. The overriding question for the sequel lv outlet: can he repeat the feat? It not much to hang a whole movie on, but the odds in Vegas are lively, so place your bets. swiss replica watches Otherwise, you left with an endless series of Halloween-themed screensavers, collected from horror discard piles the world over and hastily assembled into rolex masterpiece watches a plot. Evil clowns, Satanic amusement parks, butchers who use humans instead of pigs all they need is a mob louis vuitton outlet of creepy children and they got the complete set. Bassett assembles them with an eye on repetition: scare us with their very presence and replica handbags never mind the fact that every scene could pretty much be swapped with every other.
