Ali Winters came to Lucky Harbor to start over. What she got was a boyfriend who cheated before leaving, the town accusing her of being a thief, and kicked out of her home. Her only help? A sexy police detective who wants to be left alone. Luke Hanover returned to his hometown to momentarily escape a scandal. What he got was a cute brunette and a boatload of trouble. But this little fling is quickly becoming much, much more.
Though part of a series, these books are stand alone reads. I've loved the Lucky Harbor books from page one, and this was no exception. Not without Shalvis' quick wit and humor, this book had a deep connection to the characters and showed the true root behind what we all want in life: happiness and forgiveness. Luke was hot and alpha, Ali was lovable and quirky, and the secondary characters propelled the story. And as always, Lucky Harbor is a character all its own. Beautiful and ideal setting. Cannot wait for hot firefighter Jake's story and how he falls for childhood friend Leah next. Highly recommended.
