Spotlight & Giveaway: Lucky Harbor Series by Jill Shalvis ...

One in a Million is book #12 in the Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis. First, let’s just get this part over with…I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! I read it in one day! A word that comes to mind to describe it is “delightful!” This book made me laugh out loud, smile A LOT, and sigh, A LOT! The characters were so endearing. You couldn’t help but to love them.

Callie Sharpe has sworn off love. Ten years ago she was left at the alter and her heart was broken. So she fled Lucky Harbor for San Francisco and star

Absolutely brilliant! Something about this one really choked me up. Probably it’s knowing (but having a hard time accepting) that the series has come to an end. Whatever the reason, when it’s all said and done, One in a Million left me sighing, smiling, and wishing that the story could just go on forever!

I can't believe the series is ending! Oh, but it's going out in fine style with Callie and Tanner's story.

Quick summary
Callie Sharpe returns to Lucky Harbor to check up on her grandmother, Lucille, the town's leading gossip and social media matchmaker. She's worried she might not have all her mental ducks lined up properly. Former Navy SEAL Tanner Riggs returned to the town with his partners to start up Lucky Harbor Charters. Neither of them have "lucked" out in romance but a chance encounter at

Jill Shalvis should be prescribed as an anti-depressor. LOL
I mean, really, all her books just make me feel GOOD. The scene in Lucille's kitchen at the end? Huge smile on my face, and it's going to stay with me. ❤️

I think this is my favourite in the Lucky Harbour Series. Loved the dynamics of the couple, Tanner and Callie, the friendships on both sides and the special way that Lucille featured in this one.

I admit the previous story in this series, Cole and Olivia's, was my least favourites and so I went into the start of this one not expecting much. I did not like the way the friendship and trust was tested between Cole, Sam and Tanner in the last book and I wasn't sure if the dynamics w

As a rabid fan of Jill Shalvis’s books, I’m so sad to have the Lucky Harbor series end. For me, it all started with SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE. After reading about Maddie and Jax, I knew that this was a world that I wanted to live in. With the quaint small town feel and the outrageous cast of quirky characters, Jill Shalvis has refined what sweet and sexy Contemporary Romance is with the Lucky Harbor series. Capping off at book twelve, ONE IN A MILLION marks the last in this beloved series. But fea

My love for this series is epic

I don’t even know what to feel having turned the last page of this book.
Sadness for sure, because there are no more hot, sexy, single men in Lucky Harbor for me to read about and swoon over.

Happiness because… THAT ENDING.

Confusion because, what the hell do I read now?

Denial because there is no way this is the end. Nope. No way.

Acceptance because… there really are no more coming.

But what a way to go out with this series.

I was quite excited with this one for two reasons: 1) Tanner had a fifteen year old son and I truly wanted to read how he bonded with him. As far as I could recall, except for Josh, none of the guys in this story had a son prior to the relationship with the heroine. And Josh's was a child not a teenager ... and 2) Since this was the LAST novel from the Lucky Harbor series, I thought it would be a bittersweet kind of goodbye, but would also go out with a bang.

Alas, this was my least fav
Unrelated, but it has to be said... What does this cover have to do with the story?! Nothing.

Ok. The book. I don't believe I've read anything by Jill Shalvis before. The writing itself wasn't terrible; with the exception of one use of the word "bod", which if I never read again, it will be too soon. No, the writing was fine. It was the CHARACTERS that got on my nerves.

Callie, firstly, was just horrible. Her incessant pity-party throwing was super aggravating, and her attitude about Tanner (she w

Callie has returned to her hometown to be near her grandmother, Lucille, who is Lucky Harbor's oldest resident, infamous for her gossip, matchmaking skills, and taking stealthy photos of the town's heartthrobs in their half-naked glory. Keeping up with her grandmother is only part of the problem; she's been sent by her parents to determine if Lucille's sanity is still in tact. Callie

The Gist: Coming back to your home town to check on your grandma? No prob! Avoiding the guy you crushed on during high school...turns out to be a bit problematic. But at least orgasms are involved! Donuts, too!

I enjoyed Callie and Tanner. Both are a bit apprehensive about love and seriously feeling some sexy vibes with the other. But that's all it can be. They've got their hands full-- her with her crazy gran, him with a sullen teenage son that's now living with him.

They were fun as they tried

And that's how you end it. I think it was fitting and kind of amazing that the last couple happened to be two Lucky Harbor natives. With the slight drama filled ones of the past two couples in the trio set I loved that this one was simple. No famous backgrounds, no secrets, no guys running from commitment. Just the basics. Callie was just one of those endearingly dorky girl-next-door types. And honestly, I felt I could understand and relate to her more than the other girls. Tanner, a guy who's p ...more

Such a fantastic book to end the series, but I'm seriously sad to be saying goodbye to Lucky Harbor :(

Lucky Harbor is one of my all-time favorite series. Jill Shalvis quickly became my go to author, and each book in the series just gets better and better. I loved everything about Callie and Tanner, and I can't wait to see what else Shalvis has planned for the future. But for now, I bid you farewell, Lucky Harbor. Thanks for the memories!





The twelfth and final full length novel in the awesome Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis. Callie Sharpe, an online wedding planner, is back in Lucky Harbor to check on her eccentric grandmother, Lucille, and encounters her secret high school crush, Tanner Riggs, partner of Sam and Cole from previous books. Tanner, an ex-Navy SEAL and explosives expert, was a football star in high school and Callie was a lowly nerd. In fact, we learn that Lucille's talent on the computer was, in fact, due to he ...more

I don't know what it is but the third book in each trilogy is always my favorite. After two just ok books, I really enjoyed this one. It was fun to finally have more of crazy Lucille. Full review to come on Fiction Vixen Book Reviews

So excited to get Tanners story - I love kids stories as well as ones with military/law enforcement heroes (including ex) :D But at the same time Im really sad to be saying goodbye to Lucky Harbour - I know we have a novella which I'm looking forward to but this is the last full-length book :(

This review has two parts, the first one's about this book, the second's about the whole series.

Part 1

I enjoyed Tanner and Callie's story from the very start. It was a pleasure getting to know these characters and seeing them getting their second chance at love.

The fact that Tanner had a teenage kid and that Callie's an important part of one of Lucky Harbor's dearest residents, made the book even better because it added different layers to it: the love between a father and a son, the l

I was glad to finally get to Tanner's story, but a little sad that I have reached the end of the Lucky Harbor series. Of course, now I get to backtrack and start this author's Animal Magnetism series.

The relationship between Callie and Tanner felt a little more realistic than some of the other couples' in this series. I enjoyed just as much the way that Tanner had to establish a relationship with his teenage son Troy.

There were a few times I was a little frustrated with Callie's lac

This one was bittersweet for me, knowing this is the last book in the series, but at least Tanner gets a turn in the limelight. Boy, did I love him, he's so chivalrous, "he craned his neck and eyed the door. He couldn't have gotten far. "Want me to go beat the s*** out of him?" He sometimes doesn't take things seriously but it's all part of his charm, "yes," he said without hesitation. "A beautiful woman touching my body would make me feel a lot better." I loved this book and the series.

just finished reading the Lucky Harbor series for the second time and I really enjoyed it. Formula? Yes. Predictable? Yes. But, but but... also very funny with a great cast of characters.

Trashy, funny, sexy, steamy, some profanity... did I mention graphically sexy??? Not my usual cup of tea but I'm really enjoying this series. Similar to Susan Mallory and Kristin Higgins but steamier.

What can I say? I always have a smile on my face when I finish one of these books!😁

Once left at altar
She plans weddings, won't marry
High school crush agrees

Shalvis really rocks
Takes clichés and makes them real
Lucky Harbor's great!
✰ Bianca ✰ BJ's Book Blog ✰



We all remember Tanner from the previous two books. (He's a partner in Lucky Harbor Charters - the boat charter business he shares with Sam and Cole)


And Callie - she just moved in next door to Becca and Olivia. But she's not really new in town. She grew up here. She's Lucille's granddaughter!!! And her parents sent her to check if Lucille is still able and sane enough to live on her own ☺


Callie left Lucky Harbor years ago when she was left at the alter by her fiancé Eric - who is now Lucky

Twelfth in the Lucky Harbor romance series and revolving around different groups of friends in this harbor town in Washington state. The couple focus is on Callie Sharpe and Tanner Riggs.

This ARC was provided by NetGalley and Grand Central Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

My Take
I do enjoy this series…and I'm terrified that Shalvis is getting ready to end it. I suspect it's why it's taken so long for me to write the review: if I don't review it, it won't end. *Eye roll*, actually mult

Very good book and conclusion to the Lucky Harbor series. I am really going to miss my visits there. In this book we have Callie, who left Lucky Harbor after being left at the altar by her fiance. She has come back to check up on her grandmother Lucille (yes, the social media addict and matchmaker extraordinaire). She doesn't expect to run into Tanner, who was the boy she had a huge crush on during high school, Tanner has returned with his two best friends to start Lucky Harbor Charters. This ma ...more
