Jill Shalvis has proven again why she is one of my favorite contemporary authors with her second book in the Lucky Harbor series. Tara, nicknamed The Steel Magnolia, has no true intentions on staying in Lucky Harbor after she helps her sisters get their inn up and running. After all, her past is all to real here and staring her in the face day in and day out in the form of the delicious Ford. The attraction that Tara and Ford had as teenagers is all too real still nineteen years later and Tara tries to ignore it but (thankfully) she loses the battle. Holy cow, hottness with these two! When Taras ex-husband arrives in town to try to win her back, she tells him absolutely not but that does not stop this small town from turning it into a competition and both males have no problem helping the matter along with displays of manly accomplishments. Another wrench gets thrown into the mix when Tara and Fords past comes back in a big way.
Overall, another fun, extremely sexy book that is a perfect beach read. Looking forward to the next installment Head Over Heels with all the sexual tension that was displayed in this book! Should be fun and hot again *g* 4 stars!
