May 22, 2012 A Lucky Harbor Novel (Book 4)

Mallory Quinn has had enough of playing it safe. As a nurse and devoted daughter, she takes care of everyone but herself. And as the local good girl, she's expected to date Mr. Right. But for once, she'd like to take a risk on Mr. Wrong. And who could be more wrong than Ty Garrison? The mysterious new guy in town has made it clear that he's only passing through, which suits Mallory just fine. Besides, his lean, hard body and sexy smile will give her plenty to remember once he's gone . . .
For the first time in his life, Ty can't bear to leave. Helping this sexy seductress-in-training walk on the wild side is making him desire things he shouldn?t?including leaving the military for good. As their just-for-fun fling becomes something more, Mallory and Ty wonder if they could really be this lucky in love. After all . . . anything can happen in a town called Lucky Harbor.

My take on this book:
I have been fortunate enough to read each book in this series and always find myself looking forward to my return trips to Lucky Harbor, and while the first three books in the series  focused on three sisters who came back to Lucky Harbor to run the local Inn. With "Lucky In Love" the series take a little twist because it is the beginning of the next three books in the series, that focus on three friends Mallory, Grace and Amy. They are good friends who often meet at the "Eat Me' diner and commiserate over their love lives or lack thereof while eating chocolate.

With "Lucky In Love" we get the story of Mallory Quinn works as an ER nurse and seems to have time for everyone but herself. When her friends encourage her to try dating Mr. Wrong instead of always looking for Mr. Right she decides to step out of her comfort zone, and who better to do this with than hunky Ty Garrison, someone who says he is just  passing thru town. How will the relationship work out between the two?

Great characters really make this book worth the read!
Mallory was a character that was very easy to relate to, especially as we learn more of her background. I found her job in the ER to be quite interesting,especially some of the patients she encountered. I  enjoyed  seeing the relationship between her and Ty not only grow, but it was good to see someone taking care of Mallory for a change.

Fans of contemporary romance  are going to enjoy this book, and even though it is the fourth book in   the Lucky Harbor series it can easily be read as a stand alone work, although I highly recommend the entire series.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
