It's In His Kiss by Jill Shalvis (Review)

I was once told you could never go wrong when you pickup a Jill Shalvis book. I was like, I'll add her to my TBR list. Then I finally got a book and listen to it, and boy were they right. Seriously, you can't go wrong with a Jill book, because you will always find humor with a good story. By the end of the book you always feel good.

Now we head back to Lucky Harbor for Jill's latest release It's In His Kiss. The first thing I think of when I hear this title is the song It's In His Kiss sung by Betty Everett. Sorry about that little detour.  Anyway, we have Becca Thorpe who was escaping from her troubles and found herself in Lucky Harbor. By the way is far from New Orleans. At the beginning she wasn't sure if she was going to stay, and she was lucky to come across Sexy Grumpy Surfer (aka Sam Brody). Now Sam is a total grumpy alpha male, he walls up his emotions tighter than Fort Knox. Somehow Becca seems to worm herself into Sam.

Anyway, Becca is adorable and "the kind of woman that loves down to her toes, with her entire heart and soul." Come on she would give the shirt off her own back if you asked her. Seriously, she's totally sweet, cute, and adorable. Honestly, she's puppy-like. I adore her attitude that she could do anything. No walls can keep Becca out. Sam and Olivia learn first hand on that account.

As I said, Sam is a sexy grumpy surfer who keeps his emotions locked up tighter than Fort Knox. A lot has to do with his childhood, and learning that love was just an empty emotion. So, why deal with it when it wasn't worth the effort. Fortunately, he has some good friends that don't put up with his crap, much.

I enjoyed this story, because both of them have family issues that they need to deal with. However, they kind of refuse to deal with until each of them meddles in the others life. There is so much I could say about the story. I enjoyed this story, because you have witty dialog between the characters. Especially, when Lucile enters the picture. That woman is a menace at times, and no one can stop her.  Even though It's In His Kiss is a light fun read, you do get a little emotion. Overall, It's In His Kiss is a fun book, because you have broody Sam who is no match to Little Miss Sunshine Becca. So, if you are looking for light and fun, you can't go wrong with It's In His Kiss or any Jill Shalvis book.

  1. Great review! I think you sold me on this author. I have yet to read her, but I really need to, and my local library has tons of her books so I really should just try her out, especially since I am getting a bit more into the contemporary genre.

    1. Renee,
      Jill is a lot of fun. With this series you have Lucile and she's a hoot.
