Finding romance, one book at a time.

Forever and a Day (Lucky Harbor, #6)

Forever and a Day (Lucky Harbor, #6) - Jill Shalvis This is what I am talking about! Forever and a Day is classic Jill Shalvis and has all the elements that made me fall in love with this series starting with Simply Irresistible. The humor, heart, sexual chemistry - it had all of that and more. I loved Grace and that's a rare thing for me to say. Normally the heroine is irksome and there is some fault that I find with them but not Grace. Grace is beyond awesome and I wish all female characters in contemporary romances were like her. Despite losing her job and taking odd jobs around town, Grace is never whiny about her situation. I love that she is taking charge and doing what needs to be done to get back on her feet. Even if that means taking a job as a dog walker even though she's never had a pet or walked a dog. That's how she becomes Dr. Scott's dog walker and babysitter/nanny.The sexual tension between Josh and Grace was off the charts. I loved the build up and the constant coitus interruptus. It made the pay-off even better. Josh is my favorite kind of hero - grumpy, cranky and hot as hell. Josh is a doctor and his life at home is out of control. He keeps his feelings to himself and puts on a calm facade to tackle whatever problem he is dealt.Grace integrates perfectly with Josh's family and I loved how even though she didn't know what she as doing, she went with the flow and made the best out of every situation. Josh and Grace worked so well together. The ending was perfect. There was no contrived fight or conflict to make them split up and then get back together. The best part of Forever and a Day is the epilogue. I am a sucker for an epilogue and this one was awesome if not a little too short for my taste. I re-read the last line at least 10 times with a big cheesy grin on my face.Forever and a Day is my 2nd favorite book of the series. I could not put it down. I was engrossed, engaged, and entertained. Josh and Grace were the perfect couple and I found their relationship believable and the sexual chemistry smoking hot. Jill Shalvis outdid herself with the sex scenes in this book. The sexual tension had the pages of my book smoking!Forever and a Day is definitely one of my favorite books of 2012.
