“Shalvis has a great way of making you care about her characters and these two might actually be my favorite characters in the series so far.”
~ Under the Covers

In the third book of the Heartbreaker Bay series, Jill Shalvis charms and delights readers with Elle and Archer’s story. These two don’t really get along well but beneath the sniping at one another, you can tell that they really do like each other and are simply trying to hide it.

I immediately liked Elle and Archer separately. Shalvis has a great way of making you care about her characters and these two might actually be my favorite characters in the series so far. The entire book is light and charming, which I’ve always come to expect from Jill Shalvis, but she does try to incorporate some action scenes in here as well. For these particular stories, I don’t always require that. Whenever I read a Shalvis book, I prefer witty banter and sweet romance so the rest is just bonus really.

While in my review of the last book I mentioned that the banter with friends was a little over the top, I think it’s much more manageable and tolerable in this one. Friendship is a huge part of this series if you can’t already guess and there’s plenty of joking around and roughhousing between the guys, but in this case, I enjoyed their banter and jabs at each other because they both furthered the story and set up future books. That being said, I felt like they had a purpose and place in this story whereas in the previous books, they didn’t always.

Elle and Archer are both absolute delights. I loved reading about their time together. In their own ways, they are stubborn people but it was fun seeing them fall for one another in this book. They are definitely my favorite couple in the series so far.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an 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 write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then 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 planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
