Two Men Are One Too Many . . .
Tara has a thousand good reasons not to return to the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington. Yet with her life doing a major crash-and-burn, anywhere away from her unfulfilled dreams and sexy ex-husband will do. As Tara helps her two sisters get their newly renovated inn up and running, she finally has a chance to get things under control and come up with a new plan for her life.

But a certain tanned, green-eyed sailor has his own ideas, such as keeping Tara hot, bothered . . . and in his bed. And when her ex wants Tara back, three is a crowd she can't control-especially when her deepest secret reappears out of the blue. Now Tara must confront her past and discover what she really wants. If she's lucky, she might just find that everything her heart desires is right here in Lucky Harbor.

I must say that I enjoyed this addition to the trilogy way more than Simply Irresistible. I am so glad that I did not give up on the trilogy. I enjoyed the Steel Magnolia and the Wild Child so much in book one, that I had to read their stories. As a reader, I felt more invested and connected to Ford and Tara than I had with Jax and Maddie.

The characters were well developed and relatable. The whole aspect of a small town and all the gossip was dead on.

The addition of Tara's ex-husband, Logan, was a nice twist to shake things up with her and Ford. I was always laughing when Ford and Logan got together. It would be nice to see him stick around Lucky Harbor.

As always,I loved Chloe! I'm so looking forward to her and Sawyer. You can practically feel the heat between these two in this installment, so they are sure to set the pages on fire in their own book.

So glad you liked the book! I just wrote Logan's story in a novella length romance for the Small Town Christmas anthology collection. :)
