Review:Head Over Heels by Jill Shalvis

Head Over Heels

Published by Forever, 2011

Easily the best of the Lucky Harbor series thus far, Head Over Heels is one of those rare books that I just didn't want to put down and I didn't want to end. I loved the characters, especially Sawyer, who I just kept wishing I could hug, and it was nice to see the return of the characters we met previously. One of the only problems I had with the book was the issue of Chloe's asthma. As a medical professional by day, it was more than a little distracting to me because with the medicine we have today, it is unlikely that someone would still have asthma that debilitating that often. I wanted to scream at her to see a pumonologist! But, it was very sweet to see how much it affected Sawyer. Their chemistry was intense with just the right amount of tension. I was worried that I wouldn't like this book because I wasn't a huge fan of Chloe in the first two books, but she was better developed and more likable here. As I said, it was easily my favorite of the three in the series thus far. You don't have to read first two books to enjoy this one, but I think they are all worth the time. 

Head Over Heels (Lucky Harbor #1): 4.5/5
The Sweetest Thing (Lucky Harbor #2):  3.5/5
Simply Irresistible (Lucky Harbor #3):  4/5

Note: I received a copy of this as an e-book from the publisher for review purposes.
