No-strings attachments suit Jack just fine - perfect for keeping the risk of heartbreak away. But as Jack and Leah break every one of their "just friends" rules, he longs to turn their pretend relationship into something permanent.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the charming and engaging eighth Lucky Harbor contemporary (after It Had to Be You), Leah Sullivan, full of secrets and longing for love, returns to the Pacific Northwest town to help her aging grandmother run her pastry shop. Leah is easing back into normal life after a stressful run on a popular baking reality show. Her best friend, Jack Harper, a well-liked local firefighter dealing with suspicious fires around town, has mixed emotions about seeing Leah again. When Dee, Jack’s ill mother, voices her concern over Jack’s future, Leah recklessly claims that she and Jack are an item. As the fib makes its way around town, Leah and Jack begin to act the part and wonder how life might be if it were real. Shalvis’s fans will devour the two friends’ introspective and passionate journey to love. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (Sept.)

2013-11-04
After yet another spectacular life failure, Leah Sullivan comes back to Lucky Harbor to help her grandmother and embroils herself in a pretend relationship with her best friend that she wishes more than anything could be real. Leah spent a miserable childhood listening to her father tell her she'd never amount to anything, so why is anyone surprised that she's lived down to his expectations? She knows she's a screw-up, and she'd be so happy, thank you very much, if everyone would stop trying to convince her that she can do something with her life or that she just might be worth loving. Then there's firefighter Jack Harper, the best friend she's always loved but isn't going to risk hurting, again, because she can't be depended on for anything. So why she decides to try to cheer his ailing mother up by announcing the two of them are a couple--when they definitely aren't--she'll never know. Perhaps it's wishful thinking. But when the white lie takes on a life of its own, Jack and Leah have a real challenge on their hands. Attraction between them has never been a problem, and being forced to spend time together to keep up appearances is like setting a match to a mountainside of dry brush. Frankly, Lucky Harbor has enough fires going on, what with a serial arsonist on the loose. Jack finds the investigation a welcome distraction from dealing with Leah, the girl who broke his teenage heart. He knows her better than anyone, and the second he makes her feel like he wants her for good is the second she'll turn and run. Shalvis pens a best-friends-to-lovers winner with Leah, a wounded, deer-in-headlights heroine who must first believe she is worthy of love before she can accept the devotion of hunky Jack, the hero who can have any woman in the world but chooses her--and would do anything to help her save herself. A sexy, textured winner.

    MY REVIEW:

    I read both this book, and Seeing Red back to back because I couldn’t seem to get enough. And sure enough, my TBR pile grew because I just had to go out and get the backlist for Jill Shalvis and start reading all of her previous novels. I must say I have officially turned into a fan and am in love with this series.

    What a great story told here. I love the whole childhood friend love story and this one fits to the par just right. The way she also works in the animals into these stories is also a very cute touch. The romance didn’t seem over the top and the chemistry between these two was palpable.

    I loved the bit of suspense Ms. Shalvis added in here. The entire story was gripping, hot, and more than steamy enough to leave me wanting more. I recommend not only this book, but the entire series to read!

    Five out of five stars.

    Always love Jill Shalvis!  This book was wonderful...my only criticism was the name of the DOG.  Kevin...really?  For the first few pages I kept wondering WHO Kevin was until I realized it was the DOG!!

    Falling in love young and then thinking you're not 'good enough' for the man of your dreams...breaking his heart...then coming back after a perceived failure...well...it's just too good to be true.  

    Ms. Shalvis made the whole thing believable and H.O.T.!  Love the Lucky Harbor Series...and can't wait for the next book!

    ¿Always on My Mind¿, is my new favorite romance. The romance bet

    “Always on My Mind”, is my new favorite romance. The romance between Joe and Leah is funny and engaging, even while there is a thread of anxiety that exists between the two. The story follows Joe and Leah as they struggle to overcome the complex events of both Joe’s and Leah’s youth, and the fight to maintain their friendship in the face of the biggest adventure of their lives.
    Joe is a sexy fireman with a reputation for loving and leaving. He resists all real relationships and makes sure that relationships that he does have are short term. He is clever, funny, and has very large soft heart. Joe’s squishy side enabled him to befriend Kevin. Kevin is an overgrown eating and sleeping machine that is able to chew completely through fire hoses.
    Leah suffers from insecurities and is hiding some pretty big feelings or her own. She is smart, funny, and has a shoe collection any women would die for. As she works her way through the emotional highs and low, she realizes that some times what you need is right where you left it.
    Lisa Kleypas’s writing draws me in, and holds me captive. I can wait for the next installment!

    Hott Synopsis:
    Leah and Jack have been best friends for years. He’s the reason she managed to survive school and graduate. Now, though she’s been through four colleges in four years and is still without a degree. She’s had a disastrous experience with a reality show. Now she’s returning to her Grandmother’s Lucky Harbor home to help with her bakery until Grandma recovers from her recent knee surgery.
    Jack has been longing for Leah since she deserted him just after she graduated. He’s never told her or anyone else exactly how much she means to him. So, when she tells his mother that they’re dating to relieve his mothers guilt Jack has no idea hw to react – should he give into what Ed always wanted or keep pretending they’re just friends so he doesn’t get hurt?

    Hott Review:
    What I liked: I loved the characters. Their personalities were wonderful and I loved the angst of Jack and Leah pretending to pretend that they loved each other – too cute!
    What I didn’t like: There was too much steam for me. Also, I kept getting periphial characters confused – there were quite a few.

    Leah has been running for so long that it's a surprise when she is back in Lucky Harbor due to her grandmother needing her help.  Leah has always had a thing for Jack Harper but will he realize he loves her too?  I love watching Leah grow and accept the fact that her father isn't there anymore to brow beat her with how much a failure she is, or how he created a anxiety ridden woman.




    Jack Harper is taking care of his mother Dee as she recovers from Cancer, Jack is also drowning in his work and he notices Leah is around but doesn't want to get his heart broken again like that last time.  When Leah tells Dee that Jack and Leah are a couple how far will the fake couple go to make it look real?  And when does the fantasy turn into reality?




    This book was great full of so much reading about firefighters and the investigation into an arson and find out who it was.  Also reading about Leah and the reality food show she was on and how that ended.  It was a fabulous story which makes me glad to go back to Lucky Harbor over and over again!

    Reviewed by Karen Pirnot for Readers' Favorite

    Always on My Mind is the eighth book in the Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis. This novel features Leah Sullivan, who has just appeared on a reality baking show. She has returned to Lucky Harbor to help out her grandmother who has been taken ill and is unable to run her bakery. Leah meets up with her high school friend Jack and instantly she has flashbacks of the old relationship she abandoned to pursue a career in the culinary arts. But then, on impulse, she tells Jack's mother that she and Jack have renewed the relationship. Leah hopes the false news will have a positive impact on Jack's mother, who is in a serious battle with cancer and chemotherapy. But, it is a fake romance and Jack is furious! As a firefighter, he is handling issues of his own and he appears to be headed for danger while mimicking the actions of his deceased hero/father who died in the line of duty. When Leah's false statement then becomes oh-too-real, the fireworks begin and Shalvis' story line takes off like a rocket.

    As young adults, Leah and Jack are totally believable characters who debate issues of loyalty, love, and personal growth. Leah comes off as an indecisive woman who wants to protect herself from further hurt at all costs. Jack reaches the hearts of readers as he struggles with his love for Leah and his loyalty to his profession. The Lucky Harbor townsfolk are forever a delight and the steamy sex will have readers trying to control their rapid heartbeats! Always on My Mind is another Jill Shalvis home run in the world of modern romance literature.

    4 STARS

    I enjoy Jill Shalvis Lucky Harbor series. At least the few I have read. It is full of characters that have so much personalities, flaws, good points and history with each other. They have humor, drama, Too much sex, and even a mystery. Though I did guess early on in the book is the guilty party is and why.

    Leah Sullivan came back to town to help her Grandmother while she was recovering from surgery. While she was there back in Lucky Harbor the reality show she was part of is now airing. She can't tell anyone how far she went. Leah was concerned about how Jack's mother was coping with her cancer that she told her that Jack was seriously dating her.

    Jack is a firefighter. He tries to take care of everyone. He had always been their for Leah in her teen years. He is worried about his mom. Ends up setting up a pretend relationship with Leah. He has all these rules.

    The whole town of Lucky Harbor are watching and posting on facebook how their romance is going. Also on facebook a pole of who will end up with Leah.

    Kevin is Jack's dog and has his own personality.

    This is book #8 in Lucky Harbor, Washington.

    I really enjoy this community of characters and their relationships with each other. The only thing I would change is all the love scenes that I skipped over. Some parts of the story had me smiling still. I would read more Lucky Harbor books in the future.

    I was given this ebook to review and in exchange agreed to give honest review of it by Netgalley.

    SUPERB, THE ENTIRE SERIES !!!!!!!  LUCKY HARBOR
    I started with the first book in this magnificent series and became addicted immediately.
    Every one of these stories made me laugh uncontrollably with the endless wit and humor and
    Cry because Jill's words were about life, love, and insecurities we have all felt at one time or another.
    How can anyone reading any of these stories not help but fall in love with the most wonderful
    cast of amazing character's who simply warm your heart and soul. For me, Jill's writing  conjures up
     one's vivid imagination suddenly transporting us to "Lucky Harbor", living among it's loving
    and accentric inhabitants and giving us a glimpse into their complicated everyday lives and emotions.
     It's so hard to pick out a favorite, but I have two. "Simply Irresistitable", which started the series,
     and "Always on My Mind".  The men are "hot", "sexy," and sometimes brooding. The women are real,
    strong, funny and fighters giving these alpha males a good run for the money. Jack is a firefighter
     and Leah is a pastry chef. Their friendship started in their youth. Leah was all Jack ever wanted but she
    ran away and broke his heart. Now she's back in Lucky Harbor and trying to protect her heart at all
    Costs . What starts out as a little "white lie" to Jack's mother soon becomes the catalyst in one very 
    Hot and romantic relationship renewing old feelings that neither wants to face while fighting their inner
     most demons. This superb story is simply the best!!!!!!!!!
    And one you will remember long after you finish Reading it.   Suzzie 1

    What is it about firefighters that make them such iconic alpha h

    What is it about firefighters that make them such iconic alpha heroes? Could it be because they risk their lives to protect ours? The fact that they have to be pretty strong and in shape to do the work they do? The knowledge that they have to be extremely wise to know what risks can be taken? Hmmm, probably a little of all of the above, plus all those popular charity calendar images certainly spur the imagination too. 
    In her eighth book of the Lucky Harbor series, Always on My Mind, author Jill Shalvis gives us the story of Jack, a firefighter hero we could all fall in love with. What could be better? Well the love recipe is stirred up by adding in the sweetest heroine, Leah, Lucky Harbor's amazingly compassionate baker.
    Sweet Leah, in order to set firefighter Jack's mother's mind at ease as she goes through cancer treatment tell her that their relationship is now more than just friendship. Well, with that statement, player Jack loses his many friends with benefit hookups and perhaps Leah and Jack's friendship might move on from platonic to…extraordinary heat. Along the way, Leah deals with her return to Lucky Harbor from her stint on a Top Chef-like reality contest and Jack deals with moving on to a possible serious relationship.
    Yes, you can see where this story might go, but it's far from a formulaic read as with each of these Jill Shalvis Lucky Harbor novels, Shalvis infuses the characters with real feeling. Each of her heroes and heroines have issues that they have to overcome and while the novels could be standalone, I highly recommend reading the entire series if you haven't already. It should be on your must-read shelf.
    I fell in love with Lucky Harbor from the first page of Simply Irresistible (book 1 on sale for $2.99) when I first read it a few years ago. Since then I've laughed and cried with the stories of the really fabulous characters Shalvis has created and feel a sense of kinship with them.
    I highly recommend Always on My Mind and am looking forward to new Lucky Harbor stories from Shalvis, including "Dream a Little Dream" in A Christmas to Remember collection (about firefighter Ian and salon favorite Melissa).

    As always I really enjoy reading about Lucky Harbor residents. This was a great story about Jack and Leah, two best friends since childhood, and how their fears about love have kept them apart all these years. My only complaint is that I would like to see a bit more of the past characters in the book. Most characters could appear briefly while more closely related characters could have more interaction. Ali had a small part which was nice but Luke who is Jack's best friend didn't. I say this about the other residents because without that interaction it doesn't feel much like a series or about Lucky Harbor. It feels more about a romance that could take place anywhere. For this reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

    Jill Shalvis writes another fun and sexy read in Always On My Mi

    Jill Shalvis writes another fun and sexy read in Always On My Mind. It’s another visit to the delightful town of Lucky Harbor.




     




     




    Leah Sullivan returns to Lucky Harbor with several of her dreams shattered. She dropped out of pastry school and her big reality cooking show didn’t go as planned. Leah comes home to help her grandmother run the local bakery while she tries to find a new path for herself. Standing right smack dab in her path is her best friend Jack Harper. Leah and Jack have been friends for ages but something about this visit home has her seeing Jack as more then just a buddy.




     




    Firefighter Jack Harper likes his commitments to be on the no string variety. He is not one for a lasting relationship.  Jack is floored when he finds out that his buddy Leah has told his ailing mother that they are more then just friends. Jack understands why Leah told this fib to his mother, she wanted to cheer her up but it has put thoughts of being more then friends in Jacks head.




     




    This pretend relationship soon takes a turn for the real thing. Jack has his work cut out for him to get Leah to realize she is exactly what he needs and wants in his life. Leah has never had anything work out for her so she is slow to trust her feelings for Jack. Can these two friends turned lovers make this relationship flourish?




     




    Always On My Mind is another wonderful story set in the town of Lucky Harbor. Jack and Leah’s relationship is put to the test but manages to deliver the happy ending everyone wants and needs.  I have loved this series from the first book and hope there are many more stories to come. Jill Shalvis books are top notch and will make you laugh and sigh.

    Great addition to the series. Jack is a stupendous hero.. Handsome, a fireman, generous, in love with Leah for most of their lives. Leah is also loveable in spite of all her baggage. Their road home to each other's arms is at times funny, heartwarming, and sometimes riveting. Loved this book

    Fun Romance

    Returning to the quaint town of Lucky Harbor is always fun and can also be a delight for newcomers visiting for the first time. Narrator Annie Greene does a wonderful job as she breathes life into all the zany characters of author Jill Shalvis’ latest Lucky Harbor novel, ALWAYS ON MY MIND. Greene’s vocalizations gives each character their own distinct voice. Her cadence draws in you and holds you as the romance blooms. Leah Sullivan left Lucky Harbor several years ago to study and become a chef. She gets her big break on a reality cooking show, but things don’t always go as you want. At the end of the show, Leah returns to Lucky Harbor to help her grandmother with her pastry shop. She plans to leave town before the reality show’s conclusion. Meanwhile, her best friend Jack Harper is still in Lucky Harbor serving as a firefighter. When Leah left, she broke Jack’s heart. He still remains friends with her, but can’t let himself get any closer. When circumstances throw the two friends back together, things get a little sticky. Their attraction begins to grow despite the fact both have plans that don’t include the other. Throw friends and family into the mixture and you have a fun adventure. Shalvis has created realistic characters that are determined and reliable, yet have flaws and worries of their own. She blends romance, humor and family into a delightful story that will have you smiling. The setting is beautifully described making the reader/listener feel they are in the midst of the journey. ALWAYS ON MY MIND is the eighth installment in the Lucky Harbor series, but is a standalone story. The references to prior events will not cause new readers/listeners to be lost in the story, but provides fun reminders for returning fans. FTC Full Disclosure - This audio book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
