Review
  • I loved this book, a perfect start to the newest series by Jill Shalvis. It contains the same humor, heart and heat that we've come to expect from this author. It should be on every romance reader's summer reading list. -- Carole Tossman, Howard County Library System, Columbia, MD. (LibraryReads, July 2015)
  • Shalvis knows all the right buttons to push with characters Lily Danville and Aiden Kincaid, a junk-food junkie and a former not-really-so-bad boy who share a hometown and a history of poor choices. Lily is fired from a tony San Diego beauty salon by her unscrupulous boss and forced to go back home to Cedar Ridge, Colo., to regroup, until she can find another job and escape the small town again. Lily is a beautiful everywoman as she binges on convenience store snack foods and encounters Aiden at the worst possible moment. It may have been 10 years since the death of Lily’s sister, Ashley, but Lily is still grieving, and the last thing she wants is to spend time with the guy Ashley had a big crush on. But Aiden, now a firefighter and a hero of the civilian group Search and Rescue, has always carried a torch for Lily, and he has no intention of letting her get away again. The flubs and flaws are hilarious, the grief feels credible, and the sparks fly in this solid, light romance from the always-reliable Shalvis. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (July) --Staff (Reviewed May 18, 2015) (Publishers Weekly, vol 262, issue 20, p)
  • /* Starred Review */ After losing her job in a high-end celebrity salon in San Diego, courtesy of an unethical boss, cosmetologist Lily Danville is back in the Rockies at Cedar Ridge to take a temporary job at the local ski resort's spa. But the guilty memory of her sister's tragic mountain climbing death and Lily's own feelings for firefighter Aidan Kincaid, whom her sister adored, make staying impossible. Yet Aidan is determined to change her mind. VERDICT Sassy, funny, and down-to-earth sexy, this lively romance is one readers won't be able to resist. A hands-down winner and a terrific launch to the author's latest community series. Shalvis (Still the One ) lives in the Sierras near Lake Tahoe. --Kristin Ramsdell (Reviewed June 15, 2015) (Library Journal, vol 140, issue 11, p67)
