I love Jill Shalvis’ Lucky Harbor series, and couldn’t wait for It’s in His Kiss to get here! Yay!

About It’s in His Kiss:
ONE KISS CAN LAST FOREVER
Becca Thorpe has uprooted her life and escaped to the beach. Now’s her chance to get away from city living, throw caution to the ocean winds, and live in the moment. Especially if the moment includes the deliciously sexy surfer she meets shortly after arriving in Lucky Harbor. Something about the dark intensity of Sam’s eyes and the thrill she gets at his touch convinces her to stay awhile.
Boatbuilder and investment genius Sam Brody is a self-made man who knows how dangerous it can be to mix business and pleasure. But he can’t resist offering Becca a job just to hear her laugh and have her near. Yet when her brother comes to town asking for help, will he tempt her back to her glamorous life in the city? Or do Sam and little Lucky Harbor have a chance to win Becca’s heart?
Every time I pick up a new Jill Shalvis story, I worry that it won’t be as good as the last one… Because, y’know, she can’t be that perfect and hit them all out of the ballpark. Right?
Its in His Kiss is just about the perfect romantic read. Our heroine is spunky and brave. Our hero is grumpy and kind. I love the mix of cute and sexy, hot and sweet, and quirky and fun. And who can resist the little nicknames sprinkled liberally throughout, like “Sexy Grumpy Surfer”? I also love that Lucky Harbor’s local residents make an appearance, especially Lucille who never fails to entertain.
The story itself is basic girl-runs-away-from-troubles, girl-meets-boy-with-own-baggage, then they fall in love, and don’t know how to move forward with their pasts hanging around the ankles. But with Shalvis’ skill and creativity, It’s in His Kiss reads as fresh as daisies in springtime. (Um, did that even make sense to you? Because it so does to me…)
Anyway. If a good romance is next on your to-read list, then make it It’s in His Kiss. Thank me (& Jill!) later!
