Not a Love Song - Lori's Review of He's so Fine by Jill Shalvis

Title: He's So Fine

For Olivia Bentley, Lucky Harbor is more than the town where she runs her new vintage shop. It's the place where folks are friendly to strangers-and nobody knows her real name. Olivia does a good job of keeping her past buried, not getting too cozy with anyone . . . until she sees a man drowning. Suddenly she's rushing into the surf, getting up close and personal with the hottest guy she's ever laid hands on.

Charter boat captain Cole Donovan has no problem with a gorgeous woman throwing her arms around his neck in an effort to "save" him. In fact, he'd like to spend a lot more time skin-to-skin with Olivia. He's just not expecting that real trouble is about to come her way. Will it bring her deeper into Cole's heart, or will it be the end of Olivia's days in little Lucky Harbor?

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, ONE IN A MILLION, on shelves and e-readers now, and get all her bestselling, award-winning books wherever romances are sold.

I think I could just start each Lucky Harbor book by giving it 5 stars.  Somehow I missed this one when I was reading the series, but I quickly corrected my mistake.  I could not leave Cole Donovan out of the list of Lucky Harbor Hotties.

Cole's family dynamic is everything Olivia always wanted, but never knew a family could be.  After years of being alternately used and abandoned by her family, Olivia is in awe of the way Cole puts himself out for his sisters and his mother.  He's steady and solid when all she has known is the exact opposite.

Olivia is a strong-willed loner with a generous heart.  Cole is a happy-go-lucky, hard-working male with past hurts he tries to cover with smiles.  They need each other, but first they must each find a way to trust in themselves.

Jill Shalvis writes such perfectly flawed characters.  They live is a wonderful town that anyone would want to be a part of.  He's so fine continues the tradition of hot, alpha males falling for cute quirky ladies, all of whom have some form of emotional baggage from their past.  You would think that theme would get old after 11 or twelve books, but Shalvis has a gift.  She has created each couple to be special in their own way and I've fallen in love with each and every one of them.

5 out of 5 stars
