Publisher: Forever Romance
Release Date: April 1, 2011
Tara has a thousand good reasons not to return to the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington. Yet with her life doing a major crash-and-burn, anywhere away from her unfulfilled dreams and sexy ex-husband will do. As Tara helps her two sisters get their newly renovated inn up and running, she finally has a chance to get things under control and come up with a new plan for her life.
But a certain tanned, green-eyed sailor has his own ideas, such as keeping Tara hot, bothered . . . and in his bed. And when her ex wants Tara back, three is a crowd she can'tcontrol-especially when her deepest secret reappears out of the blue. Now Tara must confront her past and discover what she really wants. If she's lucky, she might just find that everything her heart desires is right here in Lucky Harbor.
Yay or Nay? Yay.
Why? I still don’t like all the bickering between Tara and her sisters, especially when it’s Tara and Chloe but it’s a little more bearable. As in the two don’t have as many scenes together this time around. Tara’s past is heartbreaking to say the least and it made me see her in a different light. Shalvis managed to create a real and emotionally charged past for Tara but still managed to keep the overall tone of the book light and fun. I can’t get enough of Lucky Harbor’s resident paparazzi Lucille. She manages to be funny, sharp, nosey, and endearing all at once. Every town should have a Lucille.
Ford and Tara are pretty hot together but at the same time there’s a touch of resentment between them which isn’t easily resolved, especially once their history comes out of hiding. Shalvis handled that in a realistic but humorous way, especially once Tara’s ex-husband showed up to win her back. It was hard not to like Logan even if he was interfering in Ford and Tara’s growing connection. His rivalry with Ford was something I’d never seen before. It was hilariously childish and entertaining. Overall, The Sweetest Thing was just a laugh out loud, sexy read.
