For Olivia Bentley, Lucky Harbor is more than the town where she runs her new vintage shop. It's the place where folks are friendly to strangers-and nobody knows her real name. Olivia does a good job of keeping her past buried, not getting too cozy with anyone . . . until she sees a man drowning. Suddenly she's rushing into the surf, getting up close and personal with the hottest guy she's ever laid hands on.
Charter boat captain Cole Donovan has no problem with a gorgeous woman throwing her arms around his neck in an effort to "save" him. In fact, he'd like to spend a lot more time skin-to-skin with Olivia. He's just not expecting that real trouble is about to come her way. Will it bring her deeper into Cole's heart, or will it be the end of Olivia's days in little Lucky Harbor?
Shalvis continues to chronicle the sex lives of the beautiful people of the Pacific Northwest's Lucky Harbor in this 11th installment (after It's in His Kiss). Boutique owner Olivia Bentley dives headlong into frigid ocean waters to rescue charter boat captain Cole Donovan, whom she thought was drowning. Turns out he was fine until Olivia landed smack on top of him. Even though she has plenty to hide, she's quite willing to show Cole her body, and they both get naked to "warm up" once back aboard the boat. From there it's touch (pun intended) and go as Cole pursues the reserved brunette who values privacy over everything. In striving to disengage an ugly past from her present Lucky Harbor life, Olivia nearly drives off not just Cole but her family as well. Shalvis's Lucky Harbor fans will feel right at home, while newcomers might discover a new favorite.

He IS So Fine
Words cannot describe how wonderful He’s So Fine by Jill Shalvis is. This book exemplifies Shalvis’ sense of humor, her creativity as well as her writing ability. He’s So Fine is the second in her last Lucky Harbor Trilogy or Lucky Harbor book #11. This book stars Cole Donovan and Olivia Bentley. Cole is one of the partners of Lucky Harbor Charters with Sam & Tanner and also worked on the oil rigs with them. Cole’s family, mother and 3 sisters, also live in Lucky Harbor and rely on him for his help and support. Olivia is the owner of Unique Boutique, an eclectic store that sells clothing, jewelry and accessories. The reader learns that Olivia had changed her name from Sherlyn Peterson, infamous child star who made Miley Cyrus look almost normal. She wanted to put that life behind her, along with her stage mom who couldn’t manage her own money and sister who wanted the fame of the stage that Sherlyn had. Once the sitcom was cancelled, due to her reaching puberty, everyone left her. No one was there for her to help her move forward. One member of the crew was from Lucky Harbor and always talked about how wonderful a place it was. That was all she needed and made it her goal to move there eventually. Cole lost his girl when he discovered she really loved Gil while they were at Gil’s funeral.
This book flows well between the insecurities of the two main characters. Cole needs honesty in order to trust. Olivia has always been deserted, no one staying to love her or care for her. She’s afraid to tell Cole the truth thinking he will leave her but knowing if she doesn’t tell he will still leave. Cole realizes, with the help of others, that he is too rigid in his expectations although on the surface he appears laid back. The way Ms. Shalvis deals with these two characters and their faults is pure genius. It is part of why her books are so well loved.
I loved the books written by Jill Shalvis, especially the Lucky Harbor series. I am looking forward to the last Lucky Harbor book, One In A Million, coming out October 14th, which features Callie (Lucille’s granddaughter) who lives in the third apartment with Olivia & Becca and Tanner, partner and buddy with Cole & Sam. I will grieve the end of this series as I wish I could live in Lucky Harbor.
Loved this book
I love Lucky Harbor and the people. They haven't disappointed yet. This story is about Cole and Olivia you'll get to know a bit about them in It's In His Kiss. Cole fixes everything from the boat to anything his family needs. He tends to see everything in black and white. Olivia is starting her life over and leaving everything and everybody behind so she thinks. You can't always escape your past no matter how much you what to. This is another funny love story and of course we get to see what's going on it Lucille which is always an experience. Great addition to the series and follow up to the previous book. I can't wait for Tanner and Callie story which is up next.
I love Cole and Olivia's story! They are a perfect fit together. Super girl made him feel like superman.
