Lucky in Love is the 4th book in Lucky Harbor series from author Jill Shalvis. From the back cover.~
Sometimes it’s good to be bad…
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.
I was lucky enough to get an early copy of Lucky in Love from NetGalley and have since bought it for my keeper shelf. I’m a huge fan of Jill Shalvis and she has been an auto-buy author for me for years.
I loved Lucky in Love so much. When Mallory, Amy, and Grace are stranded together during a freak storm that hits Lucky Harbor, they form their very own chocoholics group and a great friendship begins. During their first meeting Ty shows up hurt and Mallory, Amy and Grace come to his rescue. Ty even promises to be Mallory’s date for the fund raiser she is chairing, although with his head injury, he doesn’t really remember.
Mallory is tired of waiting around for Mr. Right, so figures she might as well have some fun with Mr. Wrong…and Ty totally fits the bill. He is only in town until he is well enough to go back to work and makes no bones about the fact he has no desire to stay in Lucky Harbor. However, the attraction between Ty and Mallory is off the charts. So much that they can’t even keep their hands off each other at the fund raiser and sneak off for super steamy quickie. For two people who don’t want anything but right now, Ty and Mallory soon seem to spend pretty much all their free time together.
Mallory still needs the support of her new friends to get her through the ups and downs of a relationship that isn’t really supposed to be a relationship. I loved how quickly the 3 women bonded and how realistic their friendship really was. Ty and Mallory were really great for one another. Their sexual chemistry was amazing, but they also formed a wonderful friendship as they spent more and more time together.
