My rating: 4 of 5 ⭐️

"As the brains behind wedding site, Callie sees it all: from the ring to the dress, the smiles . . . to the tears. It's that last part that keeps her single and not looking. Getting left at the altar will do that to a girl. But when Callie returns to her old hometown, she finds that her sweet high school crush is sexier than ever. And he makes it hard to remember why she's sworn off love . . .

Tanner is a deep-sea diver with a wild, adrenaline-junkie past—and now his teenage son is back in his life. How can Tanner be a role model when he's still paying for his own mistakes? It's hard enough that gorgeous Callie has appeared in town like a beautiful dream, challenging his best-laid plans to keep his heart on lockdown. Though there's something about being around her again that makes him feel like he can be the man she—and his son—deserve. Little Lucky Harbor holds their past; can it hold a beautiful new future?"


Third of the friends and co-owners of the Lucky Harbor Charter company, Tanner can be considered the wild one of the bunch. Father of a teenager, he suddenly is thrown into parenthood full time, something that he has wanted for a long time, but it isn't easy. The only love he is interested in winning is that of his son, but the newest neighbor in the old warehouse next to the marina is Callie, a sight for sore eyes, pyjama bottoms and all!

Granddaughter of the omni-present Lucille, Lucky Harbor's town gossip and matchmaker, Callie is in town mainly to make sure her Gran hasn't gone completely off the deep end. Running a wedding planning company online, Callie can work from just about anywhere, and returns to Lucky Harbor to keep an eye on Lucille. But her eye has been wandering.... straight to the delectable abs of her high school crush  Tanner, who shows off his well-toned body outside her window on a regular basis. 

Lust is an emotion both Callie and Tanner know how to deal with. Love however, is an absolute deal breaker and has them both scurrying for cover! Stubbornness is not a becoming quality, I've decided.....

Another fun instalment, this time with the slightly more serious involvement of a teenager in need of some good parenting. I wasn't as in love with it as with the eleventh book, but there is no denying Jill Shalvis' quality writing. 

✨Heat, humor and a whole lotta drama!!✨
