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?
It’s been almost a year in Lucky Harbor since Chloe moved in to the inn with her sisters. And during that time, Chloe has matured from the reckless, wild child sister, into a very caring person. She no longer just thinks about herself, but considers how her actions reflect on her family and business.
I really liked that Chloe grew up, on her own, before a romance between her and Sawyer started. There had always been attraction there, but she was not ready to be with a man like him. And oh man, how I loved Sawyer. I loved his quiet strength, his huge, sweet heart, and let us not forget his sexy looks. I think I loved him more than Ford from the previous book, and Ford was hard to beat. I loved that it was such a build-up for these two. They couldn’t stand each other when they first met, then the attraction started, then somewhat of a friendship. When they finally give in to all that pent up attraction though, it was like fireworks! They were also a really fun couple when they were together; a lot of flirting and teasing. There were also some scary moments though, what with Sawyer being a cop and all, and also with Chloe’s severe asthma.
We get to see Maddie and Tara and Jax and Ford in this one. Their relationships are still going strong. It was fun seeing their takes on Chloe and Sawyer though. Of course, the guys tease Sawyer about it, but the girls think Chloe should not start anything with him. Not because they don’t love Sawyer, but because they think Chloe and him are too opposite. The thing is though, they’re the most alike than any of the other couples, they just don’t realize it right away.
This was my favorite Lucky Harbor book so far. Like the previous two, it was funny, sweet, and sexy, which really is the best combination when reading Contemporary Romance.
