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
But a certain tanned, green-eyed sailor has his own ideas, such as keeping
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 . 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 Luck Harbor 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 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 Logan is voting in the poll as who get the girl. But Lucky Harbor 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
