LOVE CAN HAPPEN IN A HEARTBEAT
Grace never thought she’d be starting her life over from scratch. Losing everything has landed her in Lucky Harbor, working as a dog walker for overwhelmed ER doctor Josh Scott. But the day his nanny fails to show up, Grace goes from caring for Josh’s lovable mutt to caring for his rambunctious son. Soon Grace is playing house with the sexy single dad . . .
With so many people depending on him, Josh has no time for anything outside of his clinic and family-until Grace arrives in town. Now this brainy blonde is turning his life inside out and giving a whole new meaning to the phrase “good bedside manner.” Josh and Grace don’t know if what they have can last. But in a town like Lucky Harbor, a lifetime of love starts with just one day.
+Jill Shalvis has done it again. She has created a wonderful universe where I just want to jump right in and experience the action for myself.
Grace Brooks is not having a good day, scratch that, she’s not having a good life. Always feeling like she has to live up too what her parents want for her, Grace kind of lost herself in the process, or more like, she was never given the chance to discover who she is.
After walking out on a job four months ago, Grace finds herself in Lucky Harbor where she meets some great friends and people who make her feel at home, which is a first for Grace.
Needing money Grace accepted a dog walking job (although she stole it) which brought her into the dysfunctional world of Dr. Josh Scott.
Josh Scott is an Alpha man, he takes care of people which makes him being doctor perfect for him; except that there is not enough time in the day to accomplish what he has to do.
After taking x amount of hours at work, he has to come home to take care of his son and scared sister. With Josh having to take care of the entire town of Lucky Harbor and then some, is there anyone left to take care of him?
Grace plus Josh equals fire, sparks and explosions of chemical reactions. They cannot be together in a room without feeling the heat they bring out in each other and the only way to extinguish the flames (at least for a little while) is for them to come together, again and again.
In these types of stories you know things are not easily put in place and this book is no exception. Grace wants the approval of her parents and she does not think she would find that in Lucky Harbor, so with one foot and an arm out the door Josh cannot pin his hopes on Grace, knowing that one day she’ll be gone.
Will Grace stay or would Josh have to find another woman for his family, and their are plenty who are offering, I would be one too if I was there.
Jill Shalvis is amazingly awesome since she came up with these fun quotes for every chapter of the book. If you are a fellow chocoholic than you my friend are in for a treat.
Thoughts: I just wanted this book to never end
