Short description from goodread :

 Two Men Are One Too Many . . .

Tara has a thousand good reasons not to return to the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington. Yet with her life doing a major crash-and-burn, anywhere away from her unfulfilled dreams and sexy ex-husband will do. As Tara helps her two sisters get their newly renovated inn up and running, she finally has a chance to get things under control and come up with a new plan for her life.

But a certain tanned, green-eyed sailor has his own ideas, such as keeping Tara hot, bothered . . . and in his bed. And when her ex wants Tara back, three is a crowd she can't control-especially when her deepest secret reappears out of the blue. Now Tara must confront her past and discover what she really wants. If she's lucky, she might just find that everything her heart desires is right here in Lucky Harbor

My opinion:

          Jill Shalvis doesn’t loose her touch to make you smile. This book is centered around the older sister Tara and Ford, her first love. After having admitting a lot of her errors and secrets to her sister, Tara is starting to build her life for herself at Luck Harbor. The plan, becoming the cook at the inn and transforms it in a Bed and Breakfast. However, she is still avoiding Ford, the father of her child because he makes her feel guilty. Ford is feeling something amiss but doesn’t know why his life isn’t complete anymore. He is drawn to Tara and love to anger her because he remembers their last time. Still; he leaves when she asks. Still heavily attracted to each other they want to understand what is happening to them even if Tara make a step back for each step he does forward.

When Ford thinks he is starting to open her shelf , a rival comes. The ex- Husband of Tara, a Nascar Champion appears declaring he misses her and wants her back. Tara is lost. She knows she doesn’t love Logan anymore and that he isn’t completely honest but when he decide he will spend the summer trying to change her mind, she is at least touched. Until now, no man has fought for her, each one let her leave without doing anything to keep her.  The news is soon on facebook and all Lucky Harbor is voting in the poll as who get the girl. But Tara isn’t a prize to be won in a testosterone competition, is she?
And when things are becoming even stranger, that’s not all, a new person from the past make her apparition with her own agenda. Tara must decide who she wants to be once and for all but for that she must speak and listen.

The style is still fresh and funny even if the subject is important. I loved it but my preference so far goes to Maddie story that we see evolving in this book. Chloe too is starting to enjoy the life in the small city and perhaps a certain man isn’t for nothing with that.
Great book for the fan of contemporary romance and the romantic ones

Score:  4/5
