Oh My Gosh!!!! How I missed reading Jill Shalvis and her humorous stories of love and passion, wit and humor, with alpha males and sassy heroines burning the pages of the book and wanting Cedar Ridge, the place to be in for her readers.

I love Jill Shalvis for the simple fact of narrating stories with realistic endeavor, so down to earth and her sense of wit in even in serious situations is just priceless. Hudson Kincaid and Bailey Moore are just that – kind, loving and every readers dream!


Bailey Moore has seen the world at the happiest pinnacle and experienced the pain of almost losing everything. But now she’s back on rebuilding her life one moment a time and helping create a mural for the Cedar Ridge Resort is one more step towards fulfilling her desires. Meeting Hudson and falling in love was never on her list.

Hudson Kincaid has seen his share of pain of loss, yet thrives on running the ski patrol of his family resort and rescuing people in danger. He lives on the edge yet meeting Bailey really shows him what the dangerous edge can be. He falls for Bailey and his kind of love is once in a lifetime of wonderful.

A wonderful story of courage and support, family and friends, love and romance, fear and insecurities, and emotions galore, “My Kind Of Wonderful” is a heartwarming story as Hudson and Bailey brave fears and uncertainties to be together.

Jill Shalvis is “Still The One”!!!!

As much as I enjoyed her Lucky Harbor Series (so sad to see that series end), her Animal Magnetism Series is no less captivating, entreating and utterly passionate as the two-legged variety steal hearts along with the four-legged ones.

Almost losing her life in an accident, Darcy Stone is able to stand on her two feet through sheer grit, courage and immense support from her family and friends. And all through her recovery and intense therapy AJ Colten has been one of her steady constants as her physical therapist and a person of interest of her heart. She may have convinced her mind to keep her feelings under wraps, but her heart is all together another matter and working with AJ daily doesn’t make it any easy.

For AJ, Darcy is the woman. Intense feelings and love may have crowded his heart, but the past pain of breaking off a long-term relationship with his war partner has him staying away from acting on his feelings for Darcy. Losing Darcy is not an option, yet the fear of insecurities of physical scars and emotional weakness keeps him a few feet away from Darcy.

And fate throws them together on a trip that is important to AJ as he needs to secure grants to help his patients and Darcy is the living and breathing evidence of his hard work and the difference he can make in a patient’s life. Circumstances reel them in as a couple and the lingering embers of attraction burst into flames of passion and desire that consumes them both.

Darcy is one of the bravest and sassy heroines of Jill’s series. Warm and open hearted, kind and helpful she would do anything to keep her pet project of helping S&R dogs find new homes. Former war veteran and widely popular AJ is just as lovable as all her other heroes. And together they are magnetic, charming and utterly delicious.

With emotions riding high, love and desire overtaking insecurities and pain, with loads of support, wit and family meddling thrown into the pot, “Still The One” is another highly entertaining, delicious and mouthwatering offering from Jill Shalvis.

Wild child Chloe Thompson! The running-away-from-settling-down-in-one-place Chloe Thompson!! The one-who-can’t-put-roots-in-one-place Chloe Thompson!!! Pregnant, temperamental, hormonal, weepy, pissed off at her sexy and handsome husband Sawyer Bennett, Chloe Thompson is putting every one of her family and friends in the firing range of her protective husband.


Can Christmas at Lucky Harbor get any more exciting with a storm raging outside, Chloe all set to deliver the little “Bean”, and Sawyer may very well miss all the action and endure Chloe’s wrath. Chloe defies Sawyer and emotional blackmails into going to the Christmas party to be among her family and friends, a poor substitute for Sawyer who’s away on one final mission.

It’s a beautiful story of a woman finding her peace among her well-wishers. It’s a magical story of two wonderful people, having gone through so much turmoil and upheaval in their past, and they are finally putting roots in one place with each other. And it’s an emotional beginning to a beautiful future, as Chloe and Sawyer give birth to a baby, welcoming the ups and downs, keeping each other on their toes, surprising and unpredictable, but so much in love with each other, it brings tears to your eyes.

A short and a perfect story, beside a fireplace with hot chocolate in hand, and Christmas lights twinkling and carols in the background, Jill Shalvis takes us on a visit with the hot and sexy alphas of Lucky Harbor along with the sassy and gorgeous partners on their arms, and the town of Lucky Harbor welcoming the new addition, adding beauty to it’s landscape…a perfect update for Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr!!! A fitting end to an outstanding series!!!!

Lucky Harbor just keeps getting smooth as whiskey, silk over velvet and hard to walk away.

“He Is So Fine” is book #11 in Jill Shalvis’s Lucky Harbor Series and is another sizzling romance with Olivia Bentley and Cole Donovan crackling with passion and giving Lucille some fine material for her Tumbler and You Tube fixations!!! Can it be more sexy and funny for the residents of Lucky Harbor as they feed on the gossip with underlying love and concern for their own?

Olivia comes to Lucky Harbor to start fresh with a new identity leaving a devastating Hollywood life and a family that she really can’t relate to. Running a vintage store in Lucky Harbor, she’s careful to keep her distance and not make any long term relations. Living on borrowed time, she revels in running her store and creating endless fantasies and stories with the kids.

Cole runs the Lucky Harbor Charters along with his friends Sam and Tanner and is forever trying to stay clear of his coven of sisters, who have coddled him. He’s got a wonderful family and great business, but a painful past keeps him from having any long term relations, until Olivia literally jumps on his head in the seas with the intention of saving his life and knocks him flat….literally!


Cole and Olivia can’t deny the chemistry that’s been bubbling between them, and end up together. Cole believes in total honesty to the point of being rigid and unbendable…such a sweetheart…..and Olivia’s yet to come clean with Cole about her past.

Another beautiful love story in Lucky Harbor, as Olivia and Cole try to work out their misunderstandings and insecurities, put a closure to a past that seems to put the future at risk, and the confession of Olivia and Cole was an absolute treat to read.

Can’t wait for Tanner to get his heart stolen!!!!

Sensual and passionate may be Sam Brody’s kisses, but I got to say that Jill Shalvis’s penning leaves me all hot and bothered!!! Every story is as different as chalk and cheese and every character is as different as silk and velvet and every scene seems to come right out of her backyard whether she talks about Man-Repellant PJs or raccoons housing the trash. 

The tenth installment in her Lucky Harbor Series, “It’s In His Kiss” brings Sam Brody and Becca Thorpe together on the sensual sands of the Pacific Ocean. Sam is an amazing boat-builder and a genius investor, partnering with his two best friends Tanner and Cole, and runs the Lucky Harbor Charters. With irresistible charm and kisses that can melt panties (as they say), he shies away from long term relationships until Becca comes along and anchors him with her curves and sassiness.


Becca leaves her claustrophobic city life and ends on the shores of Lucky Harbor to make a new life. A lady with a heart of gold and ready to give her shirt off her back to anyone needy, she has a lot of pain and loneliness to get over despite having a family. Yet she never lets her past rule her present to make a future for herself – for Becca Thorpe. She falls for the Sexy Grumpy Surfer-Boy and goes all the way, wishing and hoping that her love gets returned in spades and more. 

It’s In His Kiss is another endearing and cute story out of Shalvis’s treasure trove. Revisiting older characters from her previous stories is always a treat. And how can we forget Lucille and her social media prowess as she leaves Facebook and Twitter on the back burner to pin interests on her boards on Pinterest! 

Looking forward to Olivia and Cole killing each other to get to their fine HEA, coming soon.
