Wednesday Tea - Head Over Heels by Jill Shalvis 4/18/12

Wednesday's Tea - Grab a cup of tea (or coffee, or heck - a milkshake) and join me in book discussions or reviews.

Jill Shalvis has been added to my favorite author's list. As an aspiring published romance author, I crave reading books by authors who I want to write like. Well, this one is it! Head Over Heels is a character-driven love story between Chloe and Sawyer, two past "outcasts" who don't want love, but find it anyway.

Sawyer is a man to drool over. Who wouldn't find a bad-boy turned sheriff enticing? He is the town hero who always saves people from harm or just steps in when needed.  Not only that, but he is a caring son, a good friend and a hardworking man. Ah! Be still my heart!

"He was in uniform, gun at his hip, expression dialed to Dirty Harry, and just looking at him had something pinging low in Chloe’s belly."

Chloe is a free-spirit who doesn't like to be tied down. But, for some reason, Lucky Harbor and the people in it make her to want to stay. Getting to know her stepsisters, opening their B & B, and helping solve crimes keeps her busy, but slowly Sawyer incorporates her body and soul.

"If at first you don’t succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.” - Chloe Traeger"

The sexual tension between good cop Sawyer and trouble maker Chloe is hot! Jill Shalvis does an excellent job at adding those yummy, never thought of love scenes, that make your heart pitter patter or at least want an extra-long morning in bed with your hubby! Even when there isn't sex, the tension between the two is palpable.

"Smile. it's the second best thing you can do with your lips." – Chloe Traeger

If you want to read a sexy, funny, heart-warming story, Head over Heels is the right choice. I look forward to reading more from the Lucky Harbor series. I hope you do, too!


  1. The whole series (so far) is worth reading. Characters are likeable and believable. One of the few authors that I can buy without borrowing from the library first :)

  2. Sounds like a great book, Melinda! Thanks for sharing!
