It’s love. Trust me.
After a lifetime on the move, Ivy Snow is an expert in all things temporary—schools, friends, and way too many Mr. Wrongs. Now that she owns a successful taco truck in San Francisco and an apartment to call home, Ivy’s reinvented life is on solid ground. And she’s guarded against anything that can rock it. Like the realities of a past she’s worked hard to cover up. And especially Kel O’Donnell. Too hot not to set off alarms, he screams temporary. If only his whispers weren’t so delightfully naughty and irresistible.
Kel, an Idaho sheriff and ranch owner, is on vacay, but Ivy’s a spicy reason to give his short-terms plans a second thought. Best of all, she’s a tonic for his untrusting heart, burned once and still in repair. But when Ivy’s past intrudes on a perfect romance, Kel fears that everything she’s told him has been a perfect lie. Now, if only Ivy’s willing to share, Kel will fight for a true love story.
Ivy Snow has spent her life surviving and moving around. Her brother is a bit of a bum and trouble maker. Usually leading that trouble to Ivy. With all that, she's remained someone with a good heart and good morals. Kel is a cop through and through. He had a incident in Sunshine Idaho where he worked that injured him and so now he's on a bit of a vacation in San Francisco hanging out and working with his cousin. Years ago he had a falling out with his mother that caused his to not trust love. Jill Shalvis is the kind of author whose books make you laugh and maybe make you cry a bit too. Most people who read her books know Kel has been a secondary character in another series of hers. Luckily for us he's moved over to this series and finally we find out more about him and he gets his HEA. He doesn't get it easily and he messes it up before it's all over. Ivy is one of those tough chicks that's a tough chick because he's always had to be one. Her heart is surrounded by a layer of titanium. Somehow Kel works his way in there. Nothing is simple for Ivy though and she loses all her dreams in one night. Jill Shalvis writes characters you will root for. Her character are fresh and fun and you want to be a part of the group. This book is the kind you read with a smile on your face and wish you could read it all over again for the first time.
