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.

I loved this book so much that I read it twice in a row, since I wasn't ready to let Lucky Harbor go!

I've been thinking about this book a lot... about Chloe "The Wild One", who has trouble saying "I love you", and about Sawyer, the sexy, stoic and badass Sheriff, who is falling... Big. Time. I've also been listening to a lot of Ed Sheeran - Amazing
5 stars – Contemporary Romance

Wow! I absolutely loved this!

I’ve enjoyed the previous Lucky Harbor stories, but Chloe and Sawyer are my favorite couple of the series. Chloe is a quirky, softhearted free spirit, but Lucky Harbor, her sisters, and Sawyer make her inner wanderer yearn to put down roots. Sawyer is a stern, protective, by-the-book sheriff and a reformed bad boy who’s still 100% hot, sexy, rugged, alpha male. YUM! These two set the pages on fire! The outdoor shower and painting scenes

Once again Jill Shalvis has made magic happen in Lucky Harbor, in an absolutely delightful, sexy, and heartwarming addition to the series. She’s given us a beautiful love story and truly incredible characters who jump off the page, becoming honest-to-God living, breathing, feeling people who I can’t help but adore.

Chloe is the only one of Phoebe Traeger’s daughters who was actually raised by their quirky, free spirited mother, and Chloe has that same nature. Her sisters love her to death, but

It never stops to amaze me how much power a book has, how mere words can make you feel like your heart will blow into a million pieces. It's overwhelming, and definitely something I would have never believed possible before I started reading this much and discovering such amazing reads. I will admit a couple of years ago I was one of those people who read 1 or 2 books a YEAR. And yes, I did say 'A YEAR',lol.

There's something that is such a comfort in reading a Jill Shalvis book. Her stories are consistently great. They are funny, charming reads with just the right dose of emotion. No matter what series of hers I'm reading, I'm pretty much guaranteed to enjoy it immensely. The Lucky Harbor series is one of my very favorites!

I have been waiting for Chloe's and Sawyer's story since the beginning. I think we all had a pretty strong inkling in book one that they were going to be matched up, and the
What can I say except I've been waiting for this book a long time and it doesn't disappoint.

Chloe is the youngest among Tara and Maddie and unlike them she was raised by her unconventional mother Phoebe moving all over, never having any roots, not knowing her father or forming connections, so she is called the wild-child, reckless, fun and irresponsible but still lovable.

And ever since all three sisters inherited the B&B, Chloe is evolving a bit, getting used to accepting the idea of home

Jill Shalvis has done it yet again. With a cast of heartwarming and sometimes quirky characters, she has done a splendid job in bringing to life the story of my two favorite protagonists from the Lucky Harbor series.

Another fantastic installment in the Lucky Harbor Series and I Loved It!

Sheriff Sawyer Thompson - "one hell of an exterior; six feet three inches, built like a linebacker; mouth watering muscles; eyes the color of melting chocolate; mesmerizing; a smile that should be registered as a lethal weapon; an all around general air of badassness and everything about him reminded Chloe that she was a woman!

Loved this book! It was just what I was in the mood for – light (with a little depth) and funny. I love a small-town sheriff with a badge, and this one fit the bill. Actually, Sawyer fit everything nicely, especially his uniform pants. Ms. Shalvis writes such real characters. Loved the bantering between these two – who still knew where they ultimately wanted to go and also knew they shouldn’t. I have to say my favorite part was the (view spoiler)

Chloe snorted, and Sawyer’s eyes cut to hers. “Like you’d want to be called sweet,” he said.

“Not me,” she said. “But then again, I’m not even halfway close to being sweet.”

And truthfully, neither was he, she thought. He was big and bad and alpha and gorgeous and smart and brave and loyal…

But not sweet. Hell no.

First I have to start by saying I have a new book boyfriend crush, and his name is Sawyer. He’s been in the background during the

I thought the first in the series was really good and gave it 4.5 stars. I also liked the second one but not quite as much as the first so it got awarded 4 stars but I have to say this one was the best and totally deserves the 5 star rating.

I loved both of the main characters - both of them was desperately screaming out for someone to love them and accept them for who they were. In the beginning Chloe was worried that Sawyer was too much of a 'straight laced' person and could never accept her

This was a lovely story about Chloe, "The Wild One" and Sawyer! The town Sheriff.

And who knew that "I researched Asthma online" would be one of the most romantic heart-warming sentences I could read in a book!

A beautiful story, with a touch more "drama" than the first two books, but given that Sawyer is the sheriff, it fits!

I have loved reading the stories of these 3 sisters, and them finding each other and the love they can have as a family, as well as finding their
Is there enough room in Lucky Harbor for so many dreamy heroes? Well, at least one of them needs to relocate to my town. lol

Third in the Lucky Harbor series and as awesome as the first two. Chloe is the wild child of the bunch and has avoided commitment and relationships. Unfortunately, in Lucky Harbor, she can't avoid Sawyer, the local law enforcement. I wasn't sure how much I'd like Chloe with her carefree and wild ways. But I did like her. A lot. But I loved Sawyer even more. I didn't think

Same.damn.story. Exactly the same damn story. Over and over again. Why can't Jill Shalvis craft a more compelling obstacle? What is with all the jokes being taken from bumper stickers and t-shirts? Why are some of the same sentences repeated throughout all three books? It's nearly word-for-word. Smarmy and unoriginal. I've read more compelling tales on the backs of cereal boxes.

Always moving from place to place, Chloe is surprised to find that she's actually starting to feel ties to the quaint town of Lucky Harbor. It's only been a short time since she's made the decision to take on the bed and breakfast with her sisters, and what started out as an awkward relationship, is quickly turning into one that she can't live without. She still finds herself getting into sticky situations that find her face to face with the big bad (and incredibly sexy) town sheriff, Sawyer. ...more
I was very sceptical at first. I was so afraid that Chloe's story would suck golf balls, being that she was the wild child (emphasize on the child part).

I was worried that my Sawyer would be blinded by all the flaming red hair on a hot bod that he'd overlook Chloe's irresponsible and childish antics. As I recalled correctly, she was very wild in book #1 and #2.

But after a few chapters in, Chloe showed her matured self off hence I decided that you are worthy of my ever brooding Sawyer after all.

"Sheriff Sawyer Thompson.

He practically had to duck to come in. He was in uniform, gun at his hip, expression dialed to Dirty Harry, and just looking at him had something pinging low in Chloe's belly.

He didn't appear to have the same reaction to her, of course. Nothing rippled Sawyer's implacable calm or got past that tough exterior. And he did have a hell of an exterior. At six feet three inches, he was built like a linebacker. But in a stunning defiance of physics, he usually had a way of

Another sassy and witty sizzler from Jill Shalvis in the marvelous Lucky Harbor series. Chloe and Sawyer were PERFECT together. Love the revisits with all the characters. This series has got to be one of the most fun-to-read of all times for me.

I finished up a few days ago but life has been so chaotic, I didn't have a chance to post. LOVED it, of course! I have a few other books to read, and then I'll dig into another Jill Shalvis. Fun!
Ahhh…it was so good to be back in Lucky Harbor. Everything feels so familiar and I just love that. It’s like I’m a part of the story. I WISH!! The delightful, quirky Chloe was perfect for the sexy, scrumptious Sawyer, my hero! She sure knows how to push his buttons, and I think he rather enjoys it, especially when those buttons lead to naked!! Always zipping around on her Vespa doing who knows what and Sawyer’s always there to catch her when she falls. A great couple with terrific chemistry.

I've loved the entire Lucky Harbor series, but this was my favorite. The chemistry between Sawyer and Chloe was delicious, and the way her asthma concerned him was so sweet...and also hot. I can't wait for the Cute Guy's story!

First, thanks to the Grand Central Publishing and NetGalley for providing the ARC of "Head Over Heels".

Head Over Heels is the third installment of the Lucky Harbor series and is full of fun and romance in the air. I am a fan of the author, Jill Shavis, and maybe, if you think that I am biased with this review, you have to read the book yourself to agree on what I am saying.

This installment is about Chloe - THE WILD ONE - the youngest of the three sisters and the

Sawyer and Chloe have been adversaries since the beginning of this series. As the town cop, it's his job to keep order and peace in Lucky Harbor, and Chloe is about the farthest thing from order and peace. What appears to be an attraction of opposites quickly changes as we learn that these two wayward souls may not be as different as once thought.

I like this couple most of all the couples so far in this series. That's saying something because Maddie/Jax and Tara/Ford both light up the pages with

This is Chloe and Sawyer's story,

We get to discover more about Sawyer. They start spending time together but Sawyer gets nervous of getting physical with Chloe with her condition which annoys Chloe.

Together they are great but with these two how long will it last before they bicker again?

I am enjoying this series very much.
