Author: Jill Shalvis
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Maddie Moore's whole life needs a makeover.
In one fell swoop, Maddie loses her boyfriend (her decision) and her job (so not her decision). But rather than drowning her sorrows in bags of potato chips, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim the inheritance left by her free-spirited mother—a ramshackle inn nestled in the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington.
Starting over won't be easy. Yet Maddie sees the potential for a new home and a new career—if only she can convince her two half-sisters to join her in the adventure. But convincing Tara and Chloe will be difficult because the inn needs a big makeover too.
The contractor Maddie hires is a tall, dark-haired hottie whose eyes—and mouth—are making it hard for her to remember that she's sworn off men. Even harder will be Maddie's struggles to overcome the past, though she's about to discover that there's no better place to call home than Lucky Harbor.
Things aren't going well for Maddie Moore. Fresh out of an abusive relationship and getting the sack, Maddie's on the lookout for a new start. After the death of her flighty mainly absent Mum, Maddie and her two sisters Tara and Chloe are left her Mum's Inn, The Lucky Harbor Inn. For Maddie this is the opportunity she's been waiting for- the chance to escape from LA and her old life, homeless, single, fresh out of confidence and in need of a new beginning Maddie sets her sights on the Inn and a dream of running it with her two sisters as a family.
Sworn off men Maddie isn't on the lookout for love when she arrived at Lucky Harbor, but neither was Jax Cullen when Maddie came speeding into his life. Instant attraction forms between the two and a strong in deniable chemistry between the two is clear to everyone. But with Maddie sworn off men and Jax not looking for anything serious the idea fun turns a lot more serious.
This was such a fun story! Perfect fluff material here, not only is it fluffy, it's hilarious, incredibly sweet and hot! I took this book with me into the hospital and i have to say it was a most incredible distraction and had me bursting out laughing which gained me some odd looks from the nurses!
The characters were likable, the story was fun, nothing heavy just perfect for when you need to let your mind rest or just want to read something for the pure fun of it! Maddie was instantly likable even if she is a total clutz, now i'm a very shy person so every time she wound up in an embarrassing situation i found myself blushing and cringing more than she did!
Jax was just, perfect. Hot, intelligent, growly (not sure if that's actually word- but damn i love me a growly man!), brooding, sweet and just... Simply Irresistible. Which actually is the perfect title for this book, from the very beginning both our main characters were instantly attracted to each other and found it simply impossible to resist one another!
I would highly recommend this book if your in need some for some smiles and laughs and just in need of some pure pleasure. I promise Jax will not disappoint you!
