Let's Go Surfing - My Review of IT'S IN HIS KISS by Jill Shalvis

Title: It's in His Kiss
Author: Jill Shalvis
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Publication Date: 8/26/2014

Becca Thorpe has uprooted her life and escaped to the beach. Now's her chance to get away from city living, throw caution to the ocean winds, and live in the moment. Especially if the moment includes the deliciously sexy surfer she meets shortly after arriving in Lucky Harbor. Something about the dark intensity of Sam's eyes and the thrill she gets at his touch convinces her to stay awhile.

Boatbuilder and investment genius Sam Brody is a self-made man who knows how dangerous it can be to mix business and pleasure. But he can't resist offering Becca a job just to hear her laugh and have her near. Yet when her brother comes to town asking for help, will he tempt her back to her glamorous life in the city? Or do Sam and little Lucky Harbor have a chance to win Becca's heart?

New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis lives in a small town in the Sierras with her family and far too many assorted quirky characters. Any resemblance to the quirky characters in her books is, um, mostly coincidental. 

Look for Jill's latest, IT'S IN HIS KISS, on shelves and e-readers now, and get all her bestselling, award-winning books wherever romances are sold.

Jill Shalvis has done it again.  And this time with sexy surfers. 

I think this may be my new favorite Lucky Harbor book.  These three friends are definitely my favorite Lucky Harbor trio.  Sam, Cole, and Tanner have it all.  They are sexy, successful, and sarcastic, but it is there sense of family/brotherhood that really draws you in.

When Becca Thorpe takes a break from her life, and more importantly, her family, she never expects to find a home, but that's exactly what she gets when she makes a stop in Lucky Harbor. After a failed attempt at waiting tables, Becca ends up taking a job running a Boat Charter and Rental business for her three yummy neighbors.  

She is quickly drawn to the strong and steady Sam, who plays his emotions extremely close to the vest.  The chemistry between the two is out of control, but Sam's determination not to sleep with his new employee cranks that tension right up through the roof.

Sam's past continues to pop back up in his life in the form of his unreliable father, but it quickly becomes obvious that Becca's past chases her just as relentlessly.  Both have justifiable trust issues that may just be too big to overcome.

Lucky Harbor will forever be my favorite fictional destination.  I will never not take time to visit there.

5 out of 5 stars

 The Drums - Let's Go Surfing
This Lucky Harbor crew needed some fun surfing songs for their summer bash, so I thought I would provide some. 


  1. This one's already on my list, everybody seems to love it :)

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed this one! I have it waiting for me but haven't gotten to it yet. I've enjoyed the other Lucky Harbor books and this one looks especially great.
