It's in His Kiss
It's in His Kiss - Jill Shalvis

Another good Lucky Harbor book! This one was one of the better ones. Both Becca and Sam are flawed, but likable. One thing that I really liked was, their weakness were strengths of the other, so they complimented each other very nicely. Both were better individuals by the end. 
I am curious about Olivia. I love Lucille!

It's In His Kiss (Lucky Harbor #10) by Jill Shalvis
It's in His Kiss - Jill Shalvis

This was my first time reading both a Shalvis book and one from the Lucky Harbor series. I liked it well enough to read more from this series and from Shalvis. It's a small town contemporary romance with a smart, capable heroine (Becca) and protective, caring to a fault at times hero (Sam). Sam came off as a omega - some moments he was more beta, some moments he was a bit alpha. The reveal of Becca's story includes rape, so warning - what I really liked is that she worked through her traumatic experience via a therapist and not the hero's magical penis. Becca does still have PTSD as well as some other mental health conditions stemming from a prior job, but she handles herself well and when she needs help she reaches out to the people close to her.

Friday Reads - March 30, 2018
Driftwood Cottage - Sherryl Woods
It's in His Kiss - Jill Shalvis
Trinity Falls - Regina Hart

The weather for this holiday weekend sucks - cold and wet. I feel myself slipping into a reading slump, so I am borrowing a few from OverDrive tonight and the library tomorrow in the hopes I find new series or authors to read. I picked these books due to the beachy, summery feel of the covers - exact opposite of the real weather. Right now, my reading this weekend includes Driftwood Cottage (Chesapeake Shores #5) by Sherryl Woods, It's in His Kiss (Lucky Harbor #10) by Jill Shalvis, and Trinity Falls (Finding Home #1) by Regina Hart. 

 

Happy Passover, Happy Easter, Happy Days off from Work (maybe), and happy reading!

Review: The Good Luck Sister by Jill Shalvis
The Good Luck Sister - Jill Shalvis

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

The Good Luck Sister is a great pick-me-up read. I adored Tilly and Dylan as teenagers in Lost and Found Sisters, so I dove into their story, eager to see what they’d be like as adults.

It’s been ten years since Dylan left Wildstone, breaking not only Tilly’s heart but his own. Now he has returned and the pull between them is as strong as ever. Tilly is understandably wary of letting Dylan in again, but he’s patient and determined to win her trust back. Both of them are a wonderful mixture of strength and vulnerability. They’re also incredibly fun and have great chemistry. The result is a romance that draws you in and I defy you not to root for these two to get their happily ever after.

The Good Luck Sister moves back and forth between Dylan and Tilly’s past and present and the flashbacks might just be my favorite part of the story. Tilly and Dylan were best friends as teenagers and the way that they supported one another grabbed my heart. Dylan grew up with an abusive father and Tilly suffered the devastating loss of her mother. Both of them carry scars that broke my heart, but I absolutely loved how they cared for and encouraged one another. Even though Dylan eventually leaves to make his way in the world and to push Tilly to seize her own chance, it’s clear that these two were always destined to find their way back to each other.

Dylan and Tilly are the heart and soul of The Good Luck Sister, but the supporting cast adds a wealth of humor to the story. Dylan’s friends Penn and Ric are delightful (and I’d love to read stories about them) and fans of Lost and Found Sisters are sure to enjoy an update on Quinn (now pregnant and absolutely zany) and Mick. And of course Tilly has a kooky dog who threatens to steal the show more than once. Jill Shalvis writes some of the funniest four-legged friends out there, so how could I not fall in love with Leo, aka Napoleon (as in complex)? All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed The Good Luck Sister. It’s a fast-paced, charming read with entertaining characters and a romance that will leave you smiling.

About That Kiss - Jill Shalvis

Ever since Joe Malone and Kylie Masters shared that earth shattering kiss outside of the bar, they avoid each other like the plague.  Neither of them ever expected a kiss would make them feel all those feelings.  Kylie couldn't understand why Joe wouldn't talk to her.  Joe Malone is a loner.  He was in the Army's special forces, did a stint in the MMA and now works for Archer at his security/investigation company.  Joe also is Molly's brother.

When Joe needs to get Molly a birthday present, a mirror that Kylie made at her woodworking shop, Joe must finally talk to Kylie.  I just loved the smart aleck banter between these two!  When something important to Kylie goes missing, she makes a deal with Joe....he helps her find her penguin and she will make Molly a mirror.

Kylie insists on being with Joe every step of the investigation.  This of course causes a lot of great moments between the two of them.  As they spend more time together, their feelings start to come out.

This was such a fun, sexy story.  I loved these two characters.  They were both stubborn but so great together.  The added mystery with the penguin was fun.  Overall, another great story by Jill Shalvis!
