Review – Sweet Little Lies (Heartbreaker Bay #1) by Jill Shalvis

Choose the one guy you can’t have . . .

As captain of a San Francisco Bay tour boat, Pru can handle rough seas—the hard part is life on dry land. Pru loves her new apartment and her neighbors; problem is, she’s in danger of stumbling into love with Mr. Right for Anybody But Her.

Fall for him—hard . . .

Pub owner Finn O’Riley is six-foot-plus of hard-working hottie who always makes time for his friends. When Pru becomes one of them, she discovers how amazing it feels to be on the receiving end of that deep green gaze. But when a freak accident involving darts (don’t ask) leads to shirtless first aid, things rush way past the friend zone. Fast.

And then tell him the truth.

Pru only wants Finn to be happy; it’s what she wishes for at the historic fountain that’s supposed to grant her heart’s desire. But wanting him for herself is a different story—because Pru’s been keeping a secret that could change everything. . . .

When I first read this blurb, I was looking forward to reading the typical Contemporary Romance. Little did I know that I’d be in love with it. I normally don’t compare books, but I can’t help but think about how much this one reminded me of Wallbanger. This book has a little bit everything: love, suspense, and a lot humor.

Pru is a sea captain by day and honorary saint by trade. After a traffic accident took her parents lives, she’s been determined to “make things right” by any means necessary to those affected. Even after selling her childhood home and gifting her parent’s life insurance, many years later, she’s STILL helping others. But who is helping her?

Finn is the owner of a local pub in the same building Pru lives in. He’s a workaholic and very rarely takes care himself, constantly looking after his brother after his Dad was killed a car accident. He has a select group friends he trusts and that’s it.

Ever since Pru walked in to the pub, Finn hasn’t been able to get her off his mind. That’s a good thing considering Pru has been thinking about Finn too. Their chemistry is beautiful to watch blossom throughout this story. But it’s the other relationships within this story that pulled me in even further. I’m in love with Thor, Pru’s mutt. I’m love with the girls. I’m love with the boys. And I’m in with the homeless man, Eddie.

There really isn’t anything to dislike in this read. Even the drama isn’t “serious” enough to be “that serious”. I’ve never read this author, but I’m REALLY looking forward to continuing this series.
