#48: The Sweetest Thing - Jill Shalvis (WITH WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT)


Synopsis & Book Info:
Two Men Are One Too Many . . .
Tara has a thousand good reasons not to return to the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington. Yet with her life doing a major crash-and-burn, anywhere away from her unfulfilled dreams and sexy ex-husband will do. As Tara helps her two sisters get their newly renovated inn up and running, she finally has a chance to get things under control and come up with a new plan for her life.
But a certain tanned, green-eyed sailor has his own ideas, such as keeping Tara hot, bothered . . . and in his bed. And when her ex wants Tara back, three is a crowd she can't control-especially when her deepest secret reappears out of the blue. Now Tara must confront her past and discover what she really wants. If she's lucky, she might just find that everything her heart desires is right here in Lucky Harbor.

My Opinion:
I've read a lot of romance novels lately, and this by far is the sweetest one yet. The title is really fitting!
The characters I immediately liked, though I was on the hook up train before they actually hooked up. You really root for two specific characters right away, and it stays no matter what curve balls are thrown, and yes they are thrown.
This story gives you exactly what you want. A happy town, filled with great people, who love each other, take care of one another, and live life to the fullest. Who wouldn't enjoy reading about that?!
I definitely think romance lovers will eat this book right up!
Oh, and I didn't read the first book, Simply Irresistible (though I plan to), and I wasn't lost. So that says something!


5/5


Recommend? YES!!!

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.
