Once in a Lifetime (Lucky Harbor #9) by Jill Shalvis

New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis continues with the ninth installment in her beloved Lucky Harbor series.


After a wrenching loss, Ben McDaniel tried to escape his grief by working in dangerous, war-torn places like Africa and the Middle East. Now he's back in his hometown and face-to-face with Aubrey Wellington, the hot-as-hell woman who is trouble with a capital T. Family and friends insist she's not the one to ease his pain, but Aubrey sparks an intense desire that gives Ben hope for the future.

Determined to right the wrongs of her past, Aubrey is working hard to make amends. But by far, the toughest challenge to her plan is sexy, brooding Ben - even though he has absolutely no idea what she's done . . .

Can this unlikely couple defy the odds and win over the little town of Lucky Harbor?

5/5 Stars
I wasn't sure if Aubrey was gonna be a decent person in this book or if I would even like her after the peeks of her we've had in other books, but surprisingly she was a pretty decent, if not heartbreaking at times. Of course Ben was great. All brooding alpha man that wants the fun stuff but not the relationship. Everyone else in Lucky Harbor was as nosey as ever, which is always great. This is a town that you either want to live in or visit often and be friends with everyone from the sexy mysterious boat builder, Sam, to the incredibly entertaining senior citizens. I definitely look forward to each installment of this light hearted romantic series. Totally recommend to anyone who likes their romance on the sweet side.
