In this captivating small-town romance, one perfect kiss is all it takes to change two people's lives forever.
Becca Thorpe has uprooted her life and escaped to the beach. Now's her chance to get away from city living, throw caution to the ocean winds, and live in the moment. Especially if the moment includes the deliciously sexy surfer she meets shortly after arriving in Lucky Harbor. Something about the dark intensity of Sam's eyes and the thrill she gets at his touch convinces her to stay awhile.
Boatbuilder and investment genius Sam Brody is a self-made man who knows how dangerous it can be to mix business and pleasure. But he can't resist offering Becca a job just to hear her laugh and have her near.
Yet, when her brother comes to town asking for help, will he tempt her back to her glamorous life in the city? Or do Sam and little Lucky Harbor have a chance to win Becca's heart?
Shalvis's command of contemporary romance is once again on display in book 10 of her Lucky Harbor series (after Once in a Lifetime). Familiar characters make occasional appearances without dominating the story, and the books, set in Washington State, can be read in any order. Becca Thorpe arrives in charming Lucky Harbor with two suitcases and her keyboard; she's fleeing her dependent brother (who's a better concert pianist that she is) and looking for a new beginning. She lands a job scheduling outings for a charter boat company run by three hunky guys but one of the owners is Sam Brody, her onetime lover. Mixing business and pleasure is a no-no for Sam, but emotions don't always follow the rules. Sam also runs into family troubles when his ne'er-do-well dad shows up looking for another handout. Shalvis combines humor, sparkling repartee, believable characters, and highly sensual sex scenes to make this book work on every level.

It's In His Kiss by Jill Shalvis
This is a Great Book. Like All books Jill Shalvis writes, you will not be dissappointed! Her writing never fails. She writes Romance that is funny, smart, and consistently Great. Pick up this or any Shalvis book, and you will not be unhappy.
Sexy and hot
Sam knows it all and oh boy. But some things it takes him a little time to figure out. I loved Becca and Sam's story and how they both overcome their crazy family past. I love the dynamic between Sam, Cole and Tanner and how the story sets up the trilogy while also giving a little sight into the past characters that we have grown to love in Luck Harbor. Must read!
My Favorite New Lucky Harbor Trio
Jill Shalvis has done it again. And this time with sexy surfers.
I think this may be my new favorite Lucky Harbor book. These three friends are definitely my favorite Lucky Harbor trio. Sam, Cole, and Tanner have it all. They are sexy, successful, and sarcastic, but it is there sense of family/brotherhood that really draws you in.
When Becca Thorpe takes a break from her life, and more importantly, her family, she never expects to find a home, but that's exactly what she gets when she makes a stop in Lucky Harbor. After a failed attempt at waiting tables, Becca ends up taking a job running a Boat Charter and Rental business for her three yummy neighbors.
She is quickly drawn to the strong and steady Sam, who plays his emotions extremely close to the vest. The chemistry between the two is out of control, but Sam's determination not to sleep with his new employee cranks that tension right up through the roof.
Sam's past continues to pop back up in his life in the form of his unreliable father, but it quickly becomes obvious that Becca's past chases her just as relentlessly. Both have justifiable trust issues that may just be too big to overcome.
Lucky Harbor will forever be my favorite fictional destination. I will never not take time to visit there.
