Maddie Moore’s whole life needs a makeover.
In one fell swoop, Maddie loses her boyfriend (her decision) and her job (so not her decision). But rather than drowning her sorrows in bags of potato chips, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim the inheritance left by her free-spirited mother—a ramshackle inn nestled in the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington.
Starting over won’t be easy. Yet Maddie sees the potential for a new home and a new career—if only she can convince her two half-sisters to join her in the adventure. But convincing Tara and Chloe will be difficult because the inn needs a big makeover too.
The contractor Maddie hires is a tall, dark-haired hottie whose eyes—and mouth—are making it hard for her to remember that she’s sworn off men. Even harder will be Maddie’s struggles to overcome the past, though she’s about to discover that there’s no better place to call home than Lucky Harbor.
I love romance novels with a little bit of substance (tackling deep, social or political issues), but sometimes you just want a feel-good, don’t-have-to-think-about-it romance where the hero’s perfect and completely unrealistic but totally swoony.
That’s this book. Jax loves everything about Maddy even though she tends to disklike most of those things about herself. He doesn’t care. He can’t keep his hands off her. In fact, she’s the only person who’s been able to pull him out of his five-year slump.
Of course that never happens, but sometimes you want to pretend like it can (or will). This book delivers.
Caveat: there is a LOT more sex in this book than I was expecting. Most of the books I read have no sex or one or two steamy scenes. In this book, once Jax and Maddy put their hands on each other, they pretty much don’t stop. If you’re looking for a clean read, keep going. If, however, you enjoy or don’t mind a lot of steam, this is a fun read.
