Review: Lucky in Love By Jill Shalvis

"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"
I really enjoyed the Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis. Now Jill is moving on to three girlfriends who are helping each other find what is missing in their lives...which would be romance of course. 

Lucky in Love is the forth book in the series and this book is all Mallory. Mallory is an ER nurse at the hospital where her mother also works. She is the rock for her entire family. When a snow storm hits Lucky Harbor she is the diner with Amy and Grace when she comes across the Mysterious Cute Guy. It just so happens that gets a concussion from a fallen tree during this storm. Enter Mallory to the rescue who helps him when he really needs it. He has agreed to be Mallory's date to the be her date for a benefit dinner, but Mallory has a feeling that he isn't going to remember saying yes.

Ty Garrison is no longer a Navy SEAL medic. After losing his team in an accident overseas, Ty still hasn't got over it. Now he does missions for a private contractor. He happens to spend his time working on classic cars and staying away from the people in Lucky Harbor.  Even though he can barley remember what happened to him the night in the snow storm, he just can’t seem to forget Mallory’s warm eyes and the way she cared for him. 

 I was really excited when Jill announced she was writing three more books in the series. Although I did enjoy this book, it didn't keep me hooked like the first previous books. I think it had to deal with being introduced to a whole new set of characters. I was intrigued by Ty and his story more than I was as them as a couple at first, but then it all started to come together for me. I enjoyed the journey Ty and Mallory went through to realize how perfect they were for one another.

 Jill tends to write some sexy scenes and this book has more than it's share. I also enjoyed the side characters that we were introduced to. Lucille was still her up to her funny antics as usual but I still couldn't get enough of her and her meddling.

The next book At Last, will be about Amy and Matt. Since they tend to stay away from each other  I am more than curious to find out what will happen between the two of them.
