Lucky Harbor, Book 4
Synopsis: 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.
Review: I really liked the first three volumes and it was a pleasure to follow the three sisters. But now, their stories being over, I wondered what the author was going to propose and I’m not disappointed. The novels finally go by 3, because this time we discover three new heroines and it is Mallory’s turn to enter the scene.
Mallory has never really been lucky in love but when she meets Ty, aka Mysterious Cute Guy, the whole city is determined that they form an item. But here, even if there is some attraction between the two, Ty is determined not to have any relationship. Resting because of an injury, he is waiting for one thing: to leave on a new mission. The last thing he wanted and was waiting for was a woman like Mallory.
I really liked this story, the two characters are really touching, though it’s sometimes pretty hard to see that Mallory is waiting for something more than Ty is willing to offer. Yes, I was a bit sad for the young woman who succumbs little by little. But this story will also do her good, make her evolve and face her past, as well as his own to finally assert herself as a person. In a light tone, important themes are discussed such as drugs, post-traumatic reactions or the emotional consequences of the war on some veterans.
Another story that carried me away and I am curious to read now the story of Amy!
