Publisher's Summary

Choose the one guy you can't have....

As captain of a San Francisco Bay tour boat, Pru can handle rough seas - the hard part is life on dry land. Pru loves her new apartment and her neighbors; problem is, she's in danger of stumbling into love with Mr. Right for Anybody but Her.

Fall for him - hard…

Pub owner Finn O'Riley is six-foot-plus of hardworking hottie who always makes time for his friends. When Pru becomes one of them, she discovers how amazing it feels to be on the receiving end of that deep green gaze. But when a freak accident involving darts (don't ask) leads to shirtless first aid, things rush way past the friend zone. Fast.

And then tell him the truth.

Pru only wants Finn to be happy; it's what she wishes for at the historic fountain that's supposed to grant her heart's desire. But wanting him for herself is a different story - because Pru's been keeping a secret that could change everything....

Don''t Bother

Even if you're a Jill Shalvis fan (like I am) this is a waste of money. You've read it a million times before and will be very disappointed. It's the old - I have a secret - can't tell him my secret (but I can have sex with him) - need to tell him my secret (but won't be able to have sex with him again, because the sex is really love) - but I can't tell him - he finds out any way, yada yada, yada ...

Wanted to throttle the heroine

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I liked that the author used domestic abuse as a theme in this story. It's good to get it out in the open so more women will feel confident to ask for help.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Not sure you would call my high blood pressure from frustration over how impulsive the heroine was. She seemed incapable of thinking anything through. Perhaps that made her more real to some readers. I just got frustrated and yelled at her a few times. :-)

What three words best describe Karen White’s performance?

Karen does contemporary romance well. She has a distinctive cadence to how she reads which works for most of the contemporary novels I've listened to her narrate.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

The heroine being less of a feather brain, reactive twit.

Any additional comments?

I've enjoyed this series. This book is my least favorite.

Won't listen to this narrator again

I liked the story and liked the characters but not the narrator. Ruined the book for me.

Fun story

I like this author because she always writes about witty funny heroines. This story was not the exception. Pru was looking for redemption for a wrong she actually didn't do (her dad did) and she spent years trying to make it up to the people that were affected by her dad's wrongdoing. Finn is one of those people but she ended up falling in love with him and things got very complicated. The story was funny, sweet and very romantic. The narration was very good as well. Very entertaining! I'll definitely be listening to book 2.

Too similar to her other books

I love Jill Shalvis and I've bought all of her books, but this books is way too similar to other books she's written. Additionally, even he same phrases and lines are used.

Narration is too FAST!

I tried to give the story a try but I could not follow it because the narration is way too fast. The speed of speaking is forced, like there is a time constraint. I couldn't listen to more than one chapter. I even tried to listen at 75% speed and that was not helpful and was just annoying.
