Mini 5 STAR #Review: Once In A Lifetime (Lucky Harbour #9) by Jill Shalvis (@JillShalvis‎)

Well, the next Lucky Harbour novel.. about another hot couple - Ben and Aubrey.

Original Title: Once In A Lifetime
Series:  Lucky Harbour #9
Author:  Jill Shalvis
Publisher:  Grand Central Publishing
Release Date:  February 18th, 2014
Source:  Review copy from the publisher
Genre:  Contemporary Romance


After a wrenching loss, Ben McDaniel tried to escape his grief by working in dangerous, war-torn places like Africa and the Middle East. Now he's back in his hometown and face-to-face with Aubrey Wellington, the hot-as-hell woman who is trouble with a capital T. Family and friends insist she's not the one to ease his pain, but Aubrey sparks an intense desire that gives Ben hope for the future.

Determined to right the wrongs of her past, Aubrey is working hard to make amends. But by far, the toughest challenge to her plan is sexy, brooding Ben - even though he has absolutely no idea what she's done . . .

Can this unlikely couple defy the odds and win over the little town of Lucky Harbor?


I am doing a short review of this because I don't have anything new to tell about it.  This is, as always, the successful Jill Shalvis formula.  Hot guy, independent cute girl, instant attraction leads to wild things, comes a problem where their love is tested and the ending is the couple deciding what is most important.  Every Lucky Harbour novel has this success formula and believe me, you will love it.

As always, the romance and attraction are great, yes.  But, even so great is Shalvis' writing.  If you want a HEA read, go to Jill Shalvis - she has not disappointed me yet.  Yes, I know this review sounds like a big Jill Shalvis ad, but it's not. :)  I am just a huge fan of her and I can't help complimenting her work.

I know what I will get from this book, even before I start reading.  You get used to it, after reading a lot of her novel.  Maybe one day, I will get tired of this no-suspense element.  But, as of now, I am a satisfied reader.

If you still have not started with this series, trust me, you are missing a big thing in contemporary romance section.
