    Jill Shalvis does it again!! He's So Fine Lucky Harbor book #11

    Jill Shalvis does it again!! He's So Fine Lucky Harbor book #11 is just as entertaining and full of real life as the rest of them. Olivia Bentley came to Lucky Harbor to get a new start.  She is a lively, quirky lady that runs the vintage shop in town.  Cole Donovan is a former Navy Seal, that works with his best buddies with Lucky Harbor Charter boats.  He is a guy that expects you to be totally honest in all aspects of life and is the fixer of what is broke.   One day Olivia sees a man drowning and without thought goes in to save him.  Little did she know that the man was former Navy Seal, sexy surfer guy next door, Cole Donovan!  Ultimately she ends of saving her, even as she sees she was saving him! Laugh out loud humor! Their journey to find what they are each looking for is as uniquely heart –warming and sexy as I have grown to love about Jill Shalvis’ books!  I am so looking forward to the next Lucky Harbor book!

Olivia does a good job of keeping her past buried, not getting too cozy with anyone . . . until she sees a man drowning.

Will it bring her deeper into Cole's heart, or will it be the end of Olivia's days in little Lucky Harbor?

    MY REVIEW:

    five fine stars! This was great! The set up in these two meeting each other had me in tears with laughter. Who would have though a prior SEAL would need rescuing from drowning! Ha!

    I loved the toughness of both the heroine and hero in this read. It had me engaged, and not wanting it to end. I have to say at this point I only with this Town actually existed. I would so visit there and most likely people watch all these characters just to see how they are doing now.

    This book is just as steamy as the last, and Ms Shalvis doesn't disappoint with a great read!

    I just loved Olivia Bentley. When she was "saving" Cole Donovan from drowning...I couldn't stop laughing. The whole time in his boat afterwards...OMG!

    These two fell hard for each other quickly. The only problem is Olivia doesn't want Cole to know about her past and who she really is, a child actor with a colorful past, but Cole is like an open book and has no secrets.

    I loved how she was welcomed with open arms into Cole's crazy family and how it made her feel so wonderful, seeing as she doesn't really have anything to do with her family who only wanted to live off of her success.

    I really enjoyed the relationship between Olivia and Becca as well as Cole's relationship with Sam and Tanner.

    Another great story from one of my favorite towns!

    In He's So Fine (Lucky Harbor #11) by Jill Shalvis, Cole is a dependable, honest man who runs a charter boat company with his friends in Lucky Harbor.  He doesn't trust easily though, and past hurts have stopped him from getting close to a woman for a long time...until Olivia...




    Olivia is finally living the life she wants to live in Lucky Harbor.  She's trying to leave her past behind her, and who she says she is now is who she is now...just not who she was.  She keeps herself closed off and a little remote, hiding a past she wants nothing to do with but that won't stay in the past.  When she 'saves' Cole from drowning, he's no longer the man she ogles out of her window...but a man who makes her tingle and want more.  But Olivia has convinced herself she can't have more, even as Cole finds himself drawn to her and wanting her in a way he hasn't wanted anyone.




    As their relationship builds, both of their pasts throw up road blocks in different ways.  Cole is starting to trust and believe in love again, but will Olivia's secrets threaten what they could have together?  Can they both find a way to make peace with the past?




    It was so much fun to be back in Lucky Harbor in He's So Fine!  I love that place, and Jill does a fantastic job of taking me there!  I love all the quirky characters on the side lines, and it was great to see them again.  While I think He's So Fine can be read as a stand alone, I'd recommend reading the whole series to get a true feel for Lucky Harbor.




    The main characters in He's So Fine pulled me in, making me want to know their secrets and where they'll go from here.  I really liked them both, and even though keeping secrets is not good, Jill let me get to know the characters well enough to understand how their pasts have brought them to where they are today.  As usual Jill's characters have a magnetic chemistry and connection that is entertaining, sweet, and palpable.  I liked how she worked in the family dynamics as well as friendship dynamics in He's So Fine, it made the people even more believable.




    With fun characters that are easy to like, well paced and smooth writing, I'd recommend He's So Fine to any contemporary romance reader!

    I LOVED He’s So Fine!
    First of all, I adore Olivia. She’s a very stand-offish kind of person that makes the best kind of friend ever. Plus, I want to visit her shop.
    Second, this book just takes you away to a fun, light-hearted, peaceful place that you won’t want to leave.
    One of my favorite parts was when Lucille gets offended that Facebook doesn’t enjoy tasteful art. Huh… that reminds me of someone else… ;)

    Jill Shalvis has written another hysterically funny, wonderful story. This is a laugh out loud read. The story is about a former child star and a charter boat captain who meet in unusual circumstances. They must overcome mistrust issues from previous experiences to find a love of a lifetime. I couldn't put this book down, I highly recommend it.

    He's So Fine by Jill Shalvis (Lucky Harbor #11)

    4 STARS

    Love the characters, love the humor, the friends, Lucky Harbor town. It made me smile, laugh and not put the book down. I admit that I read two Lucky Harbor books today and don't want to wait for the next one.

    Hate the swearing and love scenes I skipped over.

    Lucky Harbor, WA is the setting for this book. It is a small town on the ocean.

    Cole Donovan is charter boat captain. He and his two best friends are in business together. He is single.

    Olivia Bentley has lived in Lucky Harbor for a year. She is hiding a big secret from everyone. She owns her own business a second hand shop. She lives in a warehouse apartment across from Lucky charter boats.

    The opening chapter makes you laugh a lot. It draws you into the story fast and keeps you the whole way till the end.

    I love how Olivia takes one day a week and closes her shop to teach and play dress up and acting with the children.
    Pink and Kendra are two little girls that have been in a few Lucky Harbor books. They take part even though Kendra still hardly talks. I want them to get a story with their father.

    I do like Jill Shalvis sense of humor and her writing. I will keep reading and laughing as I read her charming characters of Lucky Harbor.

    I was given this ebook to read and in exchange agreed to give honest review. Received book from Net Galley and Forever (Grand Central Publishing)

    Jill Shalvis pens another gem in the Lucky Harbor series with He’s So Fine.




    Olivia Bentley came to Lucky Harbor to get away from her former life. Her she can be whoever she wants to be and no one is the wiser.  Olivia enjoys running her vintage clothing store and getting to know the locals.  One in particular has caught her eye, hunky Cole Donovan.




    Cole Donovan first meeting with Olivia has her almost drowning him while she “tries” to save his life.  Cole has guarded his heart after his former love betrayed him, so he is cautious to start another romance.  But Olivia draws him into her world with just a come hither look.




    Olivia has a huge secret that could destroy this budding romance.  Will Cole be able to forgive her when he finds out who she really is?




    The Lucky Harbor series are fantastic.  Each book will draw you into this lovely little town with its cast of characters.  Olivia and Coles romance has its ups and downs. You will find yourself routing for them to find their happy ever after.  You can’t go wrong with a Jill Shalvis’s story.

    Another winner from author Jill Shalvis-emotional and has you crying at the end of the story. Olivia has just moved to town with a new business and trying to hide from her family. Cole works with his two friends at the local dock with a charter boat company. The book gets you so involved in the emotions that the characters are going through that you just want to keep on reading. Going on the keeper shelf as always with Jill's books.
