Breaking rules and breaking hearts
Free-spirited Chloe lives life on the edge. Unlike her soon-to-be married sisters, she isn't ready to settle into a quiet life running their family's newly renovated inn. But soon her love of trouble--and trouble with love-draws the attention of the very stern, very sexy sheriff who'd like nothing better than to tame her wild ways.
Suddenly Chloe can't take a misstep without the sheriff hot on her heels. His rugged swagger and his enigmatic smile are enough to make a girl beg to be handcuffed. For the first time, instead of avoiding the law, Chloe dreams of surrender. Can this rebel find a way to keep the peace with the straitlaced sheriff? Or will Chloe's colorful past keep her from a love that lasts . . . and the safe haven she truly wants in a town called Lucky Harbor?
Healthy doses of humor, lust, and love work their magic as Shalvis tells Chloe s story in her newest Lucky Harbor contemporary romance (after The Sweetest Thing). The youngest and most independent of three sisters, Chloe has always been drawn to the wilder side of life. She prefers spontaneity to routine, but her debilitating asthma keeps her in check, as do her sisters, with whom she runs Lucky Harbor s B&B. Meanwhile, Sawyer, the local sheriff, puts Chloe off balance with his rugged looks, constancy, and black-and-white view of life. As their chemistry heats up, the relationship develops from mere lust to something considerably deeper and possibly more permanent. Both Chloe and Sawyer must re-evaluate their longtime priorities and see where love falls on the list. Wit, smoking-hot passion, and endearing tenderness outweigh some clich d scenarios to make this novel a big winner.

I have been reading for days. Couldn't put it down. Jill is amazing! Everything I read gets even more fun than the last! Love it!
Love Jill Shalvis but small inconsistencies
I love Jill Shalvis and the first trio of Lucky Harbor books. Great characters, great chemistry. I especially liked Tara & Ford's, and Chloe & Sawyer's stories. The only thing that bothered me were small inconsistencies with the details. In the first book it was mentioned that Sawyer had multiple brothers, in the last book it seemed like Sawyer was an only child. In the second book *spoiler alert* it ended with Ford asking Tara to marry him, in the third book Ford refers to Tara as his GF, and then later Tara was shocked and taken by surprise when Ford wanted to elope. With Chloe and Sawyer they have their painting episode and then about a week goes by with all of Chloe's activities, then at the bonfire they make references "the other night" like the painting episode was the night before. I'm not sure if I'm the only one that notices these things and it doesn't take away from the fact Jill provides the right amount of romance, fun and heat in her stories.
