it was amazing

“It was not enough.It was too much.It was everything.”

***SIGH, this book was just P.E.R.F.E.C.T! This is just one of those reads that makes you reconsider all the ratings you have been giving lately, one of those reads which leave you feeling all blissful and chirpy, just too content to concentrate on doing anything else. My mind is all dizzy, I just can't focus. This is how al HEA should be, I feel all light-headed and happy, which is an AMAZING way to feel after a month of too much work. My god, the previous books had been outstanding and this one was just as much if not more. JILL SHALVIS has become one of my favourite authors in the cont-romance genre, I just adore EVERYTHING she writes, and I seriously mean EVERYTHING.

The introduction of 3 amazing new Heroines...
Wow, I don't even know where to begin. Let's start by pointing that from this book onwards we get to read about some new characters, but also about some secondary characters we already loved from the previous instalments.
This second part of the series starts when 3 different women get locked in the town's diner -the Eat Me Café- because of a scary-huge storm, leaving them with zero chances of getting out time any time soon or ask for help as the power went out and no cell phones were around. So what can 3 scared-to-death women do? Well, of course talk about their whole lives and what they would like to change about them, and all while eating the best chocolate cake of their lives,lol. And that's how the Chocoholics help group was born, with weekly get-togethers from all 3 members to share their sorrows and lame moments in life.
"Strength is the ability to break up a solid piece of chocolate - and then eat just one of those pieces"

One of the best couples I have read in a VERY LONG time...
This story was about Mallory, the town's good-girl, the one everybody knows and treasures, the one who always puts others' well being before her own. I adored this heroine, she truly was friendly, good-hearted and kind, but what made me fancy her the most was that she had a very cute brave and defiant side. It really made me laugh to see this nice and charming girl developing a cute mean-streak to defend those she cared about.
And then we had our to-dye-for sexy Hero, Ty, or should I call him Mysterious Cute Guy as everybody else in Luck Harbour called him. So much to tell about such an interesting and complex character. It was definitely fun to see him falling in love with our heroine while he couldn't even noticed it himself. I loved that, he seriously had no clue at all, he was so nice to her, the perfect gentleman, but always so sure he didn't want anything serious with ANYBODY. Military men as heroes always work for me. I know, I'm such a cliché, but there's just nothing that gets to me as a heroine helping her hero heal. He might have been Mallory's first guy on her Bad boys list but he definitely was everything she needed. They simply made such an amazing and couple, really complemented each other.

I guess it's just the way this author writes because no matter what or who she writes about I end up ADORING all her books. Can't wait for the next one, keep them coming JS.
