Ali Winters is not having a good day. Her boyfriend left her, everyone in town thinks she's a thief, and now she's about to be kicked out of her home. Her only shot at keeping a roof over her head and clearing her name is to beg for help from a police detective who's as sexy as he is stern....
After a high-profile case goes wrong, Luke Hanover returns to his hometown for some peace and quiet. Instead he finds a bombshell brunette in a heap of trouble. As he helps Ali put her world back together, the pieces of Luke's own life finally seem to fall into place. Is this the start of a sizzling fling? Or are Luke and Ali on the brink of something big in a little town called Lucky Harbor?
What’s it About? Ali Winters is trying to stay positive after her boyfriend cheats on her, dumps her by text, and doesn’t have the decency to warn her in advance that he didn’t re-sign the lease on the house they were living in. Now Ali has nowhere to live AND Luke Hanover, the owner of the house has come to Lucky Harbor to regroup after a case he was working on went wrong. He just wants some peace and quiet but he doesn’t want to throw Ali out when he knows she doesn’t have anywhere to go. If he lets Ali stay in the house with him he’ll get anything but peace and quiet though.
Yay or Nay? Yay.
Why? It Had to Be You was funny. So far, all of the books in the Lucky Harbor series have had elements of humor but this book had “comedy” written all over it. From the moment Luke and Ali meet, to when the elderly citizens step in to help Ali with her troubles, to the ringleader of all things Lucky Harbor aka Lucille putting her two cents in, this is the book that has had me laughing the most.
Luke and Ali made a great couple. I think they balanced each other out and kept each other from becoming stale and stagnant in their lives. I liked them together, they were fun and sexy. I loved reconnecting with the elderly citizens of Lucky Harbor. They’re a hoot.
Click It or Skip It: Click It. Luke and Ali are another great addition to the series.
