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 Jill Shalvis' Lucky Harbor series. This book can be easily read as a stand alone or the series can be read in 3s. Lucky in Love is the start of the Chocoholics trilogy in the series. Like all Jill Shalvis books I equally enjoyed and loved this one.
Mallory Quinn is Lucky Harbor's very own good girl. She is a nurse and in the eyes of people she can do no wrong. People expect her to date Mr.Right but for once Mallory wants to let go of herself and date a Mr.Wrong. I loved Mallory. She was strong and capable. She had the ability to love people without removing their faults. She was sweet and caring and she made for a great character.
Mallory finds her Mr. Wrong in Ty Garrison. Or at least she thinks she does. Ty couldn't be more right for her. Ty is the Mysterious Cute Guy we'd met in the previous book. We find out everything going on with him here. Ty can't help but get pulled towards Mallory. She is everything good, everything he desires his life to be. The only problem is, he doesn't do relationships. He doesn't want to put roots in Lucky Harbor.
The romance between Mallory and Ty was hot and sweet. They both tried their best to keep their relationship with no strings but their hearts got entangled. I love the humor in Jill Shalvis' books and the banter in this one was fantastic. I am pretty excited to see Amy, Grace, Matt and Josh's stories. All the residents in Lucky Harbor make for a great cast of characters.
I loved all the chocolate quotes in the beginning of each chapter. Being a chocoholic myself, I completely agree with them. The steamy scenes were impeccable. Jill Shalvis knows how to write realistic romance with comedy in it. These books make for a great read which leave you behind with a good feeling. If you're a fan of contemporary romance, this series should be on your list.
