Review of Lucky in Love

Lucky in Love

Lucky in Love is a contemporary romance novel by Jill Shalvis. This book is #4 in the Lucky Harbor series.

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.

This is the first book in the Lucky Harbor series that isn’t about one of the original trio of sisters. That’s not a bad thing, just making a note.

This story is about Mallory Quinn who too lives in Lucky Harbor. She’s a nurse and finds herself falling for bad boy, Ty Garrison.

Mallory had a twin sister who died of a drug overdose. This no doubt played into her character flaw of always trying to be the good girl and working hard to please others.

Meeting Ty Garrison is exactly what this gook girl needs. They are a perfect mismatch of personalities. She softens him up and he helps her be just a little naughty.

Some have called this book romantic fluff, and really they aren’t wrong. But is that a bad thing? Sometimes we just need a nice, breezy, easy read that gives us all the happy ending we’ve been looking for.

While a great story and without a doubt a must read, why is an e-book released 5 years ago almost $7? That’s ridiculous. This isn’t a new release – if that itself is even justification for such a high price for a digital product. How can you really justify charging more for the e-book as you do the paperback? It just really doesn’t make sense. You can buy the e-book version for $6.99 or the mass market paperback for $5.75.
