As captain of a San Francisco tour boat, Pru can handle rough seas- the hard part is life on dry land. Pru loves her new apartment and her neighbors; problem is, she's in danger of stumbling into love with Mr. Right for Anybody But Her.
Fall for him- hard...
Pub owner Finn O'Riley is six-foot plus of hard-working hottie who always makes time for his friends. When Pru becomes one of them, she discovers how amazing it feels to be on the receiving end of that deep green gaze. But when a freak accident involving darts (don't ask) leads to shirtless first aid, things rush way past the friend zone. Fast.
And then tell him the truth.
Pru only wants Finn to be happy; it's what she wishes for at the historic fountain that supposed to grant her heart's desire. But wanting him for herself is a different story- because Pru's been keeping a secret that could change everything....
Pru has spent a good portion of her adult life making amends for a tragic accident caused by her parents. She's helped everyone involved in one way or another and her last wish is to see Finn O'Riley happy. Selflessly, she places a wish in the magic fountain. Her heart's desire is for Finn to find happiness. However, I don't think she planned for that happiness to come in the form of... well, her. Finn has been taking care of his brother and their business since his father died. He's not really taken time for himself, but he can't seem to not spend time with the lovely ship captain, Pru. From their first eye lock in the beginning of the book to their last kiss at the end of the book, Jill Shalvis reeled this reader in hook, line and sinker.
Sweet Little Lies the first novel in the new Heartbreaker Bay series by Jill Shalvis is an example of contemporary romance at its best. The romance is steamy with the perfect amount of comedy and angst. The characters felt real. I want to be friends with these people. I loved EVERY single page. Heartbreaker Bay has officially made my list of favorite fictional towns. It may not be as small town, as say Fool's Gold (Susan Mallery) or Sweet, Texas (Candis Terry), but with this tight knit group of friends it certainly has that small town feel. I can't wait to see what's next for Heartbreaker Bay!
