It’s love. Trust me.
After a lifetime on the move, Ivy Snow is an expert in all things temporary—schools, friends, and way too many Mr. Wrongs. Now that she owns a successful taco truck in San Francisco and an apartment to call home, Ivy’s reinvented life is on solid ground. And she’s guarded against anything that can rock it. Like the realities of a past she’s worked hard to cover up. And especially Kel O’Donnell. Too hot not to set off alarms, he screams temporary. If only his whispers weren’t so delightfully naughty and irresistible.
Kel, an Idaho sheriff and ranch owner, is on vacay, but Ivy’s a spicy reason to give his short-term plans a second thought. Best of all, she’s a tonic for his untrusting heart, burned once and still in repair. But when Ivy’s past intrudes on a perfect romance, Kel fears that everything she’s told him has been a perfect lie. Now, if only Ivy’s willing to share, Kel will fight for a true love story.

This is the eight book in the Heartbreaker Bay series. It is a great story about love and family. I really enjoy Jill Shalvis’ books and found this story heartwarming and fun. The characters are well developed and it was great to see some of the characters from previous books. The pace of the story was excellent, I loved it from page one. Overall a great read!
The stories in this series are ALL great reads. Ivy & Kel's story is no exception. Enjoyed the journey to their HEA!
Kell O’Donnell from the Animal Magnetism series AND the backdrop of San Francisco’s Heartbreaker Bay; Plus, all the fabulous people we’ve come to know and love? Yes, please! Ivy Snow is slowing making a name for herself as a taco truck entrepreneur! She must let her past go and look forward. If that means leaving out bits of her history, well that’s fine with her. Kell O’Donnell, rancher and Sheriff, is visiting/helping his cousin in San Francisco while recovering from an injury. His past has made him wary of half-truths and prevarication. Ivy with secrets she feels she must keep, and Kell wanting an open and honest relationship, are drawn to each other. Their pasts make forming a relationship unlikely, but their hearts don’t seem to be able to listen. I love the Heart Breaker Bay series. Jill Shalvis is able to reach right into her characters and draw out their stories. I can’t wait for the next book!
