“Jill Shalvis makes her characters feel real and its that realness that makes readers come back for more.” ~ Under the Covers

IT’S OVER. It’s really over now. I’ve put off reading this novella for as long as I could because one, I didn’t want the series to end and two, because I knew that if I read it, there was a real chance that I would want to reread the entire series again.

I read it. I miss the series already. And it only makes me want to cry.

Jill Shalvis’ Lucky Harbor series is one of my all-time favorite series. It’s one a turn to when life gets a little too tough and you need something to make you smile and comfort you. There aren’t entire series that do that for me. Certain books, yes. But none that are consistently good like this one has been for me.

Shalvis goes back to one of my favorite couples, Chloe and Sawyer. Sawyer is still the sexy six foot tall mystery and Chloe is still her hardheaded, stubborn self. The one difference is that Chloe is pregnant now and she’s quite moody. It makes for an interesting read that involves moments of humor and sweetness. Yet as I read, there’s also a tinge of longing and sadness as well that nearly made me cry.

Even though Sawyer and Chloe technically had their HEA, they are still evolving. They go through bouts of silences and separation. They experience doubts like any other relationship but beneath all those conflicting emotions, at the core is their love for one another. I think that’s what has made this series so vastly popular. Jill Shalvis makes her characters feel real and its that realness that makes readers come back for more.

So while I’m devastated that the series has ended, this was also the perfect end to a fabulous series. Simply put, Lucky Harbor rocks!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m a 26 year old obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I’m also a reviewer for FreshFiction.com. Over there, I’m also a columnist. I have a column called Into the Night that discusses the latest and greatest news in the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy genre. I also work as a virtual assistant for authors.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
