I’ve been slowly but surely becoming a fan of Jill Shalvis’s Lucky Harbor series. They’re sweet, romantic, and crackle with sexual tension.
Forever and a Day is the story of Lucky Harbor’s hunky doctor, Josh Scott. Josh has a five year old son and a twenty one year old sister in a wheelchair that he’s been desperately attempting to raise, as well as a thriving practice. He’s stressed to the max, and to help out around the house, he hires a dog sitter. Enter Grace – she’s been wandering aimlessly for a bit, searching for a job to utilize her accounting skills while also hoping to live up to her parents’ expectations. She’s desperate for some cash, so she takes up the offer to look after Josh’s dog, even though the dog is a total pug nightmare. When the attraction between the two begins to heat up, they both struggle to keep things simple. And we all know how well THAT works in Lucky Harbor.
This was a lovely read. I liked Grace a lot, and Josh is a keeper as well. They’re both two people who have incredibly high expectations of themselves, and it’s only when they’re together that they realize they don’t have to shoulder the burden alone. Forever and a Day makes a wonderful addition to the Lucky Harbor series. It’s hot and romantic with an ending that will have you swooning.
