Mallory Quinn has had enough of playing it safe. As a nurse and devoted daughter, she takes care of everyone but herself. And as the local good girl, she's expected to date Mr. Right. But for once, she'd like to take a risk on Mr. Wrong. And who could be more wrong than Ty Garrison? The mysterious new guy in town has made it clear that he's only passing through, which suits Mallory just fine. Besides, his lean, hard body and sexy smile will give her plenty to remember once he's gone...
For the first time in his life, Ty can't bear to leave. Helping this sexy seductress-in-training walk on the wild side is making him desire things he shouldn't -- including leaving the military for good. As their just-for-fun fling becomes something more, Mallory and Ty wonder if they could really be this lucky in love. After all...anything can happen in a town called Lucky Harbor.

Remember the Lucky Harbor series? Oh, who am I kidding..you all definitely know about the series. Well, if you don't know, just start with any of the books in the series you get your hands on. You need not wait to go in order. And this particular book - Lucky in Love - definitely doesn't need to any previous books to be read in the series to understand.
Mallory Quinn, a 'good' girl to her family, friends and society, is tired of being a good girl. She wants one Mr. Wrong, to make her life alive. Working as a nurse doesn't give you a lot of options though. But, one stormy night, Mallory, along with Amy (the lonely, but beautiful waitress of the local diner) and Grace (now jobless, but brainy blonde) form a group called 'Chocoholics' and vow to make their lives better. First, they focus of Mallory and try to get her Mr.Wrong. During their discussion, Ty, a tough, hot, mysterious male, is met with an accident outside their diner. The three women tries to help him out and they also think that this is Mallory's Mr.Wrong guy.
You don't want me to continue with how they met and how they got hot..believe me, its always better with Jill Shalvis' writing. I am a huge fan of the author. And this book reminded me why I am.
Mallory and Ty are so opposite poles of the society. But, they couldn't keep their hands off each other. In spite of their differences, both the couple have been hurt and they acted as each other's medicines to heal themselves. The mention of some of the names from the previous series is so pleasant, that I felt as though I have heard about my old friends.
At times, I felt like beating Ty on top of his head with a hammer to wake him up and see what is in front of him. But, no complaints there, either. I liked the annoying guy, however blind he is. Bring it on, Jill! If you write, I will read!
Another beautiful romance from Jill!
