After dropping out of pastry school and messing up her big break on a reality cooking show, Leah Sullivan needs to accomplish something in her life. But when she returns home to Lucky Harbor, she finds herself distracted by her best friend, Jack Harper. In an effort to cheer up Jack's ailing mother, Dee, Leah tells a little fib - that she and Jack are more than just friends. Soon pretending to be hot-and-heavy with this hunky firefighter feels too real to handle . .
No-strings attachments suit Jack just fine - perfect for keeping the risk of heartbreak away. But as Jack and Leah break every one of their "just friends" rules, he longs to turn their pretend relationship into something permanent. Do best friends know too much about each other to risk falling in love? Or will Jack and Leah discover something new about each other in a little town called Lucky Harbor?
I absolutely adored this book. It's nice when you read a book and you fall in love with all the characters and feel their emotions. I loved Leah from the start. I had read others in this series and couldn't wait to get her and Jack's story. I was not disappointed! I loved watching them realize they were "it" for each other. I loved Elsie and Dee and their own little side stories going on. I was floored when we found out about a certain fireman and his criminal tendencies. Wow, didn't see that coming! Great read. Loved every minute. Can not wait for Aubrey and Ben's book now!!
Reading a Jill Shalvis book is like enjoying a warm cup of cocoa on a cold winter's day while sitting in front of the fireplace. It warm and comforting and there is nothing you'd rather be doing. Corny, huh :)
