Choose the one guy you can’t have . . .

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.

Fall for him—hard . . .

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. . . .

Kassiah: You can’t go wrong with Jill Shalvis, and I for one am so excited to see this brand new series from her. Did you see the cover? *swoon*

Pru’s got a secret. And that secret is enough to destroy everything when she finds herself falling for the enigmatic pub owner Finn O’Reilly. She went to this town, hoping to right a wrong and ended up falling in love. I was hooked from the very beginning.

He pointed at her.

“Me?” she asked, even though he couldn’t possibly hear her from across the place.

With a barely there smile, he gave her a finger crook.

Yep. Her.

Surprisingly, I loved Pru. It’s not often that I love the girl in the story, but come to think of it, I don’t think that’s necessarily true in Jill Shalvis’s books. I loved the girls in the Lucky Harbor series. Anyway, Pru is such a great, multi-dimensional character. She’s sweet and has a heart of gold and is willing to give up her own happiness for others. And her dog is named Thor.

Finn. Oh, Finn. He’s so hot! And he’s sweet. And he’s just…gah. He is definitely definitely one of my favorite Shalvis guys ever. I mean, the things he does for her. And to her.

One of my favorite things about diving into a new series by Jill Shalvis is getting to meet all of the new characters and dreaming about who’s going to hook up with who. There are so many awesome characters in Heartbreaker Bay. I loved all of Finn’s friends (and his brother) and can’t wait to see more of them.

I loved the chapter titles and the dedication. I loved Pru and Finn’s chemistry and banter.

“Feel free to kiss it better.”

I loved how the story played out and the way they both were healed through Pru’s actions. There’s just the right amount of angst and the perfect amount of sexy in this book. And the epilogue? *le sigh*

In case you can’t tell, I loved this book. I loved this town, these characters, their chemistry…just everything. If you love hot bartenders who will make you swoon and small town romances–or any romances at all–you’re going to want to grab this book right now.
