ONCE IN A LIFETIME by Jill Shalvis (Lucky Harbor #9)

ONCE IN A LIFETIME by Jill Shalvis (February 18, 2014; Grand Central Publishing Mass Market; $6.00)

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?

My Review: ONCE IN A LIFETIME by Jill Shalvis


I love Lucky Harbor. I have not read many of the books but would love to read them. I admit their were a lot of love scenes that I skipped over but the rest of the book I loved.

Some of the characters were so cute. You just wanted to take them home with you. Some of them made you laugh a lot. Some were hot. But they made you care for them. It made you want to visit.

Of course the setting for this Lucky Harbor was a new bookstore. Of course I love books. It is also set in Lucky Harbor, Washington.

The plot Aubrey hears an idea of making things up to people that she has wronged in the past. So she makes her list. Gathers up her courage and starts trying to make right.

It had some nice surprises in the story. I also laughed and smiled a lot reading it. I love stories that have community of caring people. We get to see a lot of characters as Aubrey tries to make amends.
The only thing I did not enjoy was all the love scenes.

I would read more books in the Lucky Harbor series.

I was given this ebook to read for purpose of reviewing it and being part of it's blog tour.
