This book starts a brand-new series–Heartbreaker Bay. First, the blurb:
As captain of a San Francisco Bay tour boat, Pru can handle rough seas—the hard part is life on dry land. Pru loves her new apartment and her neighbors; problem is, she’s in danger of stumbling into love with Mr. Right for Anybody But Her.
Pub owner Finn O’Riley is six-foot-plus of hard-working hottie who always makes time for his friends. When Pru becomes one of them, she discovers how amazing it feels to be on the receiving end of that deep green gaze. But when a freak accident involving darts (don’t ask) leads to shirtless first aid, things rush way past the friend zone. Fast.
And then tell him the truth.
Pru only wants Finn to be happy; it’s what she wishes for at the historic fountain that’s supposed to grant her heart’s desire. But wanting him for herself is a different story—because Pru’s been keeping a secret that could change everything. . .
My Thoughts: Jill Shalvis is one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. She writes sweet, humorous, sexy stories with characters who are sometimes a little quirky. I will always read her books. However, I don’t think this book is her best story. For me, the story was just a little too predictable. I ended up liking the character of Finn, but Pru never quite hit the “like” button for me. I thought the ending was a bit rushed. I did, however, enjoy a few of the secondary characters whose forthcoming books I am looking forward to reading. Jill is a great writer–this book just didn’t do it for me like her others.
