Amy Michaels loves her new life in Lucky Harbor. A waitress in the local diner, she's looking forward to her first weekend hike through the mountains. But when a wrong turn takes her off the trail, she finds herself up close and personal with forest ranger Matt Bowers. And even though she's tempted to kiss that sexy smile right off his face, she won't make the mistake of getting involved with the town heartthrob.
A former cop whose life went south, Matt doesn't let anyone get too close. But something about the feisty beauty caught his eye the moment he first saw her in the diner. After a hot night under a starry sky, Matt can't deny their attraction-or the fact that for the first time in a long time, he feels the stirrings of something more. Now it's up to Matt to help Amy see that, no matter what is in their past, together they can build a future in Lucky Harbor.
It's always such a treat to read a book by Jill Shalvis because I know I'm guaranteed to love it! Time after time, she weaves tales that sweep me up and set me down in a place I'd love to live, with people I want to call friends, family, or the love of my life.
And sometimes when I'm reading a book, I try to imagine what it's like for the author when writing the story. Do they bite their nails, fiddle with their hair, or gaze out the window? Well, whatever it is Jill Shalvis does, it works, because book after book, story after story, without fail, she makes magic happen.
At Last is the fifth book in the incredibly popular Lucky Harbor series and just like the previous books is filled with excitement, laughter and plenty of steamy goodness. But I have to say... wow… even more than the previous books, this one is filled with poignant moments that can only happen when people we care about hurt. And trust me on this, Matt and Amy are definitely people we come to care about, and they definitely hurt. Their lives before Lucky Harbor were certainly not easy, but that tragic past, all that heartache and vulnerability made their happily ever after, once they reached it, so beautiful that I couldn't help but close the book with a smile on face and a warm, happy feeling inside.
5 magical stars!!
