Simply Irresistible (Lucky Harbor, #1) by Jill Shalvis

What did you think of this book?

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) It was simply irresistible! Absolutely loved it.

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 165 comments It was, Pamela! It was just what I needed. I thought the sisters’ arguments were funny. I totally sympathized with Maddie over the whole tool belt fetish.

I LOVE this book. I loved the whole chopping wood scene, and the washer scene...this book was just incredible. I don't know how a person manages to write such a darn near perfectly flawless book!

message 5: by Katherine (new)

Katherine The washer scene was great, can you imagine Jax walking in? Oh My. This book had me from the beginning and is now a keeper for me. Which I might add is not a small thing. I only keep books I know I will re-read. The end really got me when Tara and Chloe voted to stay. That was very touching.

yea, its a keeper for me too! That one time they were at his house was just perfect!

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) I love the drunk scene when they call for a carpenter. hehe

Shelly (shellye77) Okay, after I finish Lady Sophia's Lover, this will have to be my next read! It sounds so good and if I'm going to be a member of this group, I should read more than one of her books!

Bekah (bekah317) | 246 comments Mod
well you definitely should read more of her books, but its not a prerequisite of membership!!!

message 11: by Shelly (new)

Shelly (shellye77) But I liked Get A Clue so much, I want too!

Bekah (bekah317) | 246 comments Mod
Well I can't wait to hear your thoughts...


message 13: by Shelly (new)

Shelly (shellye77) I finished it a few days ago - it was great! The washer scene was hilarious!

Bekah (bekah317) | 246 comments Mod

One of my favs and most memorable too! I also love the wood chopping scene!!!

Jill Shalvis (jillshalvis) | 29 comments These little notes make my day, I can telly you that!

message 16: by Bekah, I wanna get Jax wasted! (new)

Bekah (bekah317) | 246 comments Mod
:-) Well its only fair, since Jax totally makes my day some days!!

message 17: by Shelly (new)

Shelly (shellye77) Jill - It really is a great story! I really liked it, but am more interested in Chloe's story, the wild child with asthma - I may not be as wild as Chloe, but I do have asthma, so interested in seeing how much trouble she can get into without killing herself!

message 18: by Lynsey (new)

Lynsey (lynseys) | 7 comments Oh my goodness, Chloe and the scene where she is talking in her sleep saying something like 'not now Juan, there's not enough left in my inhaler' - that had me absolutely shrieking like a lunatic with laughter!!!

I think that one of the big reasons why these books are so amazing, because the humour is so perfect. I can't stand it when writers deliberately humiliate their characters in order to get a laugh, it really makes me cringe.

Bekah (bekah317) | 246 comments Mod
I agree Lynsey -- the humor is done very well!

message 20: by Kathy Anne (new)

Kathy Anne (kathyanne) Jax-Ohhhhh !
It was great how he invested his money after leaving the bad stuff lawyers ,and could help the people in his town that needed it...He`s a keeper
Can`t wait to read Tara and Ford`s story,wish I had already ordered it.

message 21: by Bekah, I wanna get Jax wasted! (new)

Bekah (bekah317) | 246 comments Mod
I've been hearing such great things about Ford! I can't wait to read him either!!

message 22: by Jill (new)

Jill Shalvis (jillshalvis) | 29 comments Aw, you guys are very good for making my day. I'm so glad you get my humor. I'm never sure if I'm pulling it off when I'm here all alone making myself laugh as I write ... :)

Denise I just finished Simply Irresistible and loved it. Jill's talent with the humor is spot on. This is a quick read that completely takes the stresses of life away, it's nice to escape, even if it is a couple of hours. Enjoyable!

Sunny☼ (sunny2) The sisters in the Inn, I must admit have a special spot for me. They are the best.

message 34: by Sandra (new)

Sandra Hoover (sandrahoover) This was a sweet, funny, sexy book...well written and it has me completely hooked. The sister's bantering was both sweet and humorous. And Jax...Oh my! Can't wait to read more!

message 39: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 34 comments I just finished the second one in this series as well and loved it. I love the sister's relationship as they struggle to get along and get to know each other better. And now I can't wait to read Chloe's story.

message 40: by Giulia (new)

Giulia Good point Leslie! The sisters reconnecting was an important part of the plot, and really sweet. They totally hooked me into the series--I do intend to read their novels.
