Forever and a Day

Forever and a Day is the latest book in the best selling Lucky Harbor series from Jill Shalvis. From the author’s website.~


Grace never thought she'd be starting her life over from scratch. Losing everything has landed her in Lucky Harbor, working as a dog walker for overwhelmed ER doctor Josh Scott. But the day his nanny fails to show up, Grace goes from caring for Josh's lovable mutt to caring for his rambunctious son. Soon Grace is playing house with the sexy single dad . . . 

With so many people depending on him, Josh has no time for anything outside of his clinic and family-until Grace arrives in town. Now this brainy blonde is turning his life inside out and giving a whole new meaning to the phrase "good bedside manner." Josh and Grace don't know if what they have can last. But in a town like Lucky Harbor, a lifetime of love starts with just one day . . .

I was lucky enough to get an early copy of Forever and a Day from NetGalley. I’m a huge fan of Jill Shalvis and couldn’t wait to read the next installment in the Lucky Harbor series.

I know I said I loved At Last best of this current trilogy, but I spoke too soon.  Forever and a Day jumped to the top my Lucky Harbor favorites for this current trilogy. Can’t say it’s my favorite of the series, since Tara and Ford are still my favorite couple, but it is a really close second.

I’ve loved Grace since she first came to Lucky Harbor and wanted to know more about her background. Once again, the friendship between Grace, Mallory, and Amy is a major factor in the story. Mallory and Amy are both in loving relationships and want to make sure their friend Grace follows suit. However, because of Grace’s family, she feels like Lucky Harbor is just a temporary stop on her way to a bigger job in banking. One in the big city that will make her doctor parents proud of her. The fact that she keeps taking temporary jobs in Lucky Harbor kind of makes other think she doesn’t want to leave.

When Grace takes on the job of dog walker for Dr. Josh Scott, she gets way more than she bargained for in the deal. Not only is Tank the dog from Hades, but she is soon watching Josh’s son Toby when his nanny leaves with no notice. Add in Josh’s sister Anna and you have a family for Grace to take care of. Both Grace and Josh are attracted to one another. However, Grace doesn’t want to get involved with Josh because he is a doctor with no free time on his hands, and Josh just doesn’t really believe he knows how to have a real relationship. Not that they can seem to keep their hands off each other. Shalvis gives her readers the sexy love scenes they have come to expect from her stories. Josh and Grace have some of the best chemistry both in and out of bed.

Forever and a Day is a must-read for anyone who loves fun and super sexy reads. Jill Shalvis has been an auto-buy author for me for years, and I can’t wait to get my keeper shelf copy of Forever and a Day. The official release day is July 31, 2012 and you can buy your copy from Amazon, B&N, or your favorite bookstore.
