Lucky In Love by Jill Shalvis

In the cookies of life, friends and lovers are the chocolate chips.
We've all been there... looking for something to read. Craving a certain type of book... something special... something guaranteed to make you feel good. You know the ones - the stories you can lose yourself in. The ones that’ll pull you in right from the start, with characters who will win your heart, completely? Yeah, and when that's what you're in the mood for, nothing else will do. Well, that’s the kind of story I was looking for, and that’s exactly what Jill Shalvis delivered with Lucky in Love.
Mallory Quinn has had enough of 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.
Lucky in Love is the fourth book in the Lucky Harbor series and another funny, romantic, steamy story. Ty Garrison is a great alpha male – sexy, troubled, strong yet vulnerable – my idea of the perfect hero. Mallory Quinn is a wonderful heroine – compassionate, independent, smart… and she too is troubled and vulnerable. I enjoyed the way their relationship developed, the way they had each other’s backs, unconditionally, regardless of the situation. Their sexual chemistry is off the charts and their romance… not easily earned, but well deserved.

The bottom line: There are so many things to love about Jill Shalvis' stories, but what I’ve come to appreciate most is that, without fail, I can count on her to deliver something unique, something special. How she delivers it is the true magic of her writing, but the fact that she does so, again and again, is what keeps me coming back for more.

My sincerest thanks to and Grand Central Publishing for providing me with an eARC of this wonderful story.
