ARC Book review: Second Chance Summer (Cedar Ridge #1) by Jill Shalvis

Available June 30th 2015

Cedar Ridge, Colorado, is famous for crisp mountain air, clear blue skies, and pine-scented breezes. And it's the last place Lily Danville wants to be. But she needs a job, and there's an opening at the hottest resort in her hometown. What has her concerned is the other hot property in Cedar Ridge: Aidan Kincaid-firefighter, rescue worker, and heartbreaker. She never could resist that devastating smile . . .

The Kincaid brothers are as rough and rugged as the Rocky Mountains they call home. Aidan has always done things his own way, by his own rules. And never has he regretted anything more than letting Lily walk out of his life ten years ago. If anyone has ever been in need of rescuing, she has. What she needs more than anything are long hikes, slow dances, and sizzling kisses. But that can only happen if he can get her to give Cedar Ridge-and this bad boy-a second chance . . .

Sad as it was to see Jill Shalvis end her wildly successful Lucky Harbor series its' exciting to see a brand new series start. Second Chance Summer is the first in the brand new Cedar Ridge series. Set in Colorado in the mountains it features a family held together mostly by three brothers that own and run a ski lodge. Aidan the second from the oldest helps out at the lodge as much as he can while also working as a fire fighter and S&R person. His plate is pretty full but when Lily Danville comes back to town he has no trouble adding one more thing. Lily left 10 years ago after the loss of her beloved baby sister and her dad all in the same week. Blaming herself and needing to escape she left but in doing so she left Aidan behind. Now she's back and she can't figure out how to let someone love her and he can't not love her even though his bruised heart says not to. Love this first book in the series. We meet many of the secondary characters and family of Aidan's. It'll be interesting to see what shakes out as the series continues. Aidan is pretty much every woman's dream man. He's sexy, he's ambitious and you can count on him to come through when you need him. Doesn't make him perfect but it sure makes him attractive. Lily has just been a lost soul for the past 10 years. She thought she was happy or at least happy enough until losing her job brings her back to Cedar Ridge where her best friends helps her with a job and a place to stay.  Typical of Jill Shalvis there is plenty of romance, plenty of humor and plenty of sexy! A must read!
