Book review: Head over Heels by author Jill Shalvis


Head Over Heels by Jill Shalvis
out in stores and online now.

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?

This is the third book in the Lucky Harbor series by author Jill Shalvis. Chloe, Maddie and Tara are step sisters who inherited a dilapidated old bed and breakfast from their mother. In book one they decide they want to fix it up and run it. Chloe is the baby of the sisters and the one with the free spirit.Sawyer is the big bad sheriff of Lucky Harbor and Chloe seems to be always ticking him off. In reality both Chloe and Sawyer have personal demons driving them. Chloe never knew her dad. Doesn't even know his name and her mother was a flighty woman who dragged her all over living a life where you she never had a home. Top that with the fact that she has life threatening asthma and her life is not as much fun as people seem to think. Sawyer was raised by his dad and he was a wild kid who couldn't be tamed and over the years there grew a distance between him and his dad that he thinks can never be filled.  Through the first two books you got small glimpses at Sawyer and Chloe but you were left to wonder what they were really like. What was really going on with Chloe. She acted nonchalant about everything like she really didn't care much. Then there is a whole asthma thing. She has such severe asthma she can't even have sex or so she thinks she can't. Sawyer breaks through her barriers as much ans she breaks through his. The man is so sweet you can't help but love him even if he is hard on himself about everything.  Head over Heels is another great read from Jill Shalvis. Another one you can sit down and enjoy with a small smile on your face with a laugh or two thrown in for good measure. If you haven't read this series what are you waiting for?
