He’s So Fine by Jill Shalvis -a Review
He’s So Fine
Lucky Harbor series – Book # 11
by Jill Shalvis
Release Date: September 30,2014
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?
He’s So Fine by Jill Shalvis is the 11th book in her Lucky Harbor series. The last book of Lucky Harbor was the first book in this three book arc that concentrates on the three men who run a Charter Boat. We had Sam & Becca in the last book, and He’s So Fine belongs to Cole and Olivia. The three men are best friends, and each different, but they have one thing in common….they are hot hot hot. Very swoonworthy.
The story starts with Cole (the resident McGyver) fixing some wiring on the boat in the wee hours of the morning before clients arrive. The sparks from the wire caused Cole to fall over the boat into the freezing water. Enter Olivia, who was taking a walk and she sees Cole fall over. Thinking he is in danger, she jumps in to save him. Needless to say, they both end of saving each other, and before hypothermia sets in, they have to strip out of the wet clothes, wrapping blankets around them. Cool way to meet. Lol
Oliva runs Unique Boutique, and not much is known about her. Becca is her neighbor and they are fast becoming friends. But Olivia is hiding something about her past, and is hesitant not to become too close to anyone, especially Cole. You can’t help but love Cole from the start. He is a truly hunky sweetheart, who melts your heart in all his scenes. Did I say how much I loved Cole? Well Olivia, despite her desperation to avoid him, finds herself unable to resist and slowly begins to fall the sweet sexy Cole.
What follows is a wonderful romance between two people meant for each other, and each having their own issues from the past. Cole is a town favorite, as he is always helping others when they need help, and he has a devoted family, not to mention his two close friends. Olivia is the opposite, running away from the childhood that spiraled out of control, as she hides her real identity. They are so good together, you find yourself rooting for them from the start. What was really very nice about this romance was the humor throughout that Shalvis so ably added that had us laughing quite often. Will Cole and Olivia get past their issues from the past? You will have to read this wonderful story to find out.
Jill Shalvis once again creates a wonderful romance, a fabulous couple we care so much about, and the fun we had while in Lucky Harbor. Though this is 11th book, you can read this as a stand-alone, or read the first book (It’s In His Kiss) in this three book arc to follow these hot swoonworthy men who run the Charter boat in Lucky Harbor. Oh this was so much fun, not to mention hot.
