Contemp Review: Always on My Mind (A Lucky Harbor Novel) Mass Market Paperback

I've finished "Always on My Mind the 8th book in her Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shavis.


After dropping out of pastry school and messing up her big break on a reality cooking show, Leah Sullivan needs to accomplish something in her life. But when she returns home to Lucky Harbor, she finds herself distracted by her best friend, Jack Harper. In an effort to cheer up Jack's ailing mother, Dee, Leah tells a little fib - that she and Jack are more than just friends. Soon pretending to be hot - and - heavy with this hunky firefighter feels too real to handle.

No-strings attachments suit Jack just fine - perfect for keeping the risk of heartbreak away. But as Jack and Leah break every one of their "just friends" rules, he longs to turn their pretend relationship into something permanent. Do best friends know too much about each other to risk falling in love? Or will Jack and Leah discover something new about each other in a little town called Lucky Harbor?

My Review:

Leah Sullivan and Jack Harper are childhood best friend and were each others support when they were growing up.  Leah left town which broke Jack's heart when things started heating up between them.   Now Leah is back in town to help run her grandmother's bakery after dropping out of pastry school and messing up and opportunity on a cooking show.  She finds herself distracted by Jack and to cheer up his mother she tells a little lie that she and Jack are seeing each other.  As they interact more she finds it hard to just pretend they are involved.

Jack is hiding a whole lot of pain but hides it under a charming personality.  He has been pushing himself into something that he is not because he has grown up under the shadow of his firefighter father who died in the line of duty.

I really enjoyed the chemistry between Leah and Jack because it was shimmering under the surface ready to explode.  When they finally got together it was hot and steamy and they both really enjoyed it.


Thanks Hachette Book Group Canada for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!
