As you may know, I have been trying to get my hands on as many old Jill Shalvis stories as possible and reading her works in order of publication. This has been a mixed bag. I can definitely see her growth as the years progress. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find all of her books. But between the library and the online library I’ve found a few. This one was at my local library in the form of a beat up well read trade paperback.
I was so happy this story immediately reminded me of more current Jill Shalvis works. The chemistry between Taylor and Mac is off the charts. Best of all is the slow-build, the will they or won’t they (although we all know they will!), the sexual push and pull. I became quite invested on getting these two together even though, as the reader, there was nothing I could do.
As you’ll notice, this is book 3 in a series. I wasn’t able to get either book 1 or 2 to read but that absolutely did not matter. This story can be read as a standalone. If you can get your hands on the first two, I’m sure they’re worth the read. And you might get some extra background on Taylor.
This is a super quick read that I read in one day while also doing some Christmas baking.
