Synopsis: Ali Winters is not having a good day. Her boyfriend left her, everyone in town thinks she's a thief, and now she's about to be kicked out of her home. Her only shot at keeping a roof over her head and clearing her name is to beg for help from a police detective who's as sexy as he is stern....
This instalment in the Lucky Harbor series didn't knock me clean off my feet like Ms. Shalvis usually does, but even though it doesn't top my list as a favourite ... it's still fabulous.
It Had To Be You seemed too short, it's jam packed and I was turning the last page before I knew it. Maybe it’s because I get so excited having a new Shalvis book to read; I end up reading like there’s no tomorrow.
There’s always moments that I like to refer to as typical Shalvis hilarity … the drunken high jinx on the pontoon had me laughing out loud. Bits like this …
“What’s up?” gaze from heavy-lidded eyes-his bedroom eyes.
“I’ve been thinking,” she said. “I bet Bree hid the money at Teddy’s place.”
“You’ve been thinking? When? When could you have been thinking?”
“Earlier. But it makes sense, don’t you think?” she pressed. “If her goal was to frame him, she’d want to-“
“Earlier? You mean earlier when I was buried so deep inside you that I could feel your tonsils as you screamed my name and-“
oh yeah…she writes sexy stuff!
If you haven’t read anything by Jill Shalvis, pick something up, anything … I recommend her entire backlist so you really can't go wrong.
