Mallory Quinn has had enough of playing it safe. As a nurse and devoted daughter, she takes care of everyone but herself. And as the local good girl, she's expected to date Mr. Right. But for once, she'd like to take a risk on Mr. Wrong. And who could be more wrong than Ty Garrison? The mysterious new guy in town has made it clear that he's only passing through, which suits Mallory just fine. Besides, his lean, hard body and sexy smile will give her plenty to remember once he's gone....
For the first time in his life, Ty can't bear to leave. Helping this sexy seductress-in-training walk on the wild side is making him desire things he shouldn't, including leaving the military for good. As their just-for-fun fling becomes something more, Mallory and Ty wonder if they could really be this lucky in love. After all...anything can happen in a town called Lucky Harbor.

I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
I have about 100 audiobooks and most of them are romance stories. This one has now become my number one favorite romance audiobook. It made me smile, it made me cry, it made me feel butterflies... WOW! I loved every second. The story is very romantic and both of the main characters are nice. The narrator did a very good job too. This book is a must listen for anyone who enjoys a feel good hot romance story.
Probably one of my favorites!
I loved Mallory and Ty.
The Narrator did a great job with all the charaters. Don't switch Narrators. she is perfect,
I know you can only put so many charaters in a book but it would have been nice to revisit all the charaters from the past books! But I LOVE this series!
Yes. It was very entertaining.
Yes. It was very entertaining.
Yes, and has a very interesting voice. Easy to listen to.
Because of the poor narration it was very difficult to tell one character from another.
I had a love/hate realationship with this book and I'm not sure why. Overall I liked it a lot, but there were often times when I felt like the characters were being unrealistic or acting odd.
This book had a lot of forced "coincidences" or perfect set-ups that I found disappointing. One thing I like a lot was the fact that the two main characters got together pretty immediately. Some books drag it out so long it becomes unrealistic.
Yes, I like her voice a lot a she does decent male voices. The only thing that drove me a little nuts was the very audible "g" she put on allll of her words. e.g.: "lookhinG" "walkhinG"... Very odd. There were a lot of very common words that she had a weird way of prounoucing. I am guessing that English is maybe a second language for her. That being said, it wasn't enough to take away from the story, and I would listen to her again, for sure.
No, it had boring parts and fast parts. Something I could set down, but also something that I wanted to pick back up.
This is my 4th book by this author...all have been humerous, but I very often found myself giggling or gasping aloud!
I loved the story and how it it connected to other books I have listened to.
The story line was sweet.
When they were talking, deciding whether or not they loved each other.
Very, very high. Lucky in Love was the first I heard of the six-part series highly recommended by Eloisa James on her B&N blog. This book is fourth one, and, without having heard or read the preceding Lucky Harbor stories, I fell immediately into the story, characters, location, and absolutely loved the narrator Suehyla El Attar's voice. Appreciated her ability to pause at just the right moment, letting the moment hang or the mad dialogue rush of an embarrassed female. The other five novels [Book 1 Simply Irresistible, Book 2 The Sweetest Thing, Book 3 Head over Heels, Book 5 At Last, Book 6 Forever and a Day] are well worth the time, although I didn't like the narrator for Books 1 and 2, and that really ruined the stories for me. El Attar (Books 3 and 4) and Erin Bennett (Books 5 and 6) read Shalvis much more fluently.
Mallory is hard to beat - and what woman can't relate to a character who is constantly giving of herself, her time, her affection, and rarely receives the same in return?
Ty Garrison, without a doubt. El Attar's dry, terse interpretation, similar to how she read Sheriff Sawyer Thompson the third of the Lucky Harbor series, was wonderful. The huskier male tones did not sound deliberately forced and actually sounded legitimate.
Second would be how El Attar read the perpetually flustered and harrassed Mallory.
I'd be remiss in not mentioning Mallory's mom with what I'd consider a Minnesotan accent (and I blame/thank Prarie Home Companion).
Several laugh-out-loud moments :-) Jill Shalvis writes great contemporary romances with dialogue that zings, snaps, and sounds completely plausible in today's society.
I would buy Books 3 - 6; save a credit or two for Books 1 - 2. Again, not because of the story but because of the narrator's interpretation.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
I like Dr Josh's story best. This one & Amy's story are about the same quality. You will enjoy all 3. You do not have to listen in any order, connected but could stand alone.
See js two other chocolate books. Lots of fun and good feelings. YOU must be in the mood for it. If not get a good mystery to get you out of the stress!
If you like this reader, try her best JS, Head Over Heels. She makes Ty "Cute Mystery guy" come to life in this book. Do not pay attention to other reviewers, Erin Bennett does a good job on the other two stories!
Good overall feeling. These 3 chocolate stories are the best of the lucky harbor series.
Get a pen ready as chocolate recipes are at the end of each book. Yum yum
