This is a light-hearted, fun romance. I loved the character development, and the story line. Ali is about to lose her place to live and her boyfriend all in one day. The dog of a boyfriend does not tell her that he is not renewing the lease on the place that they are renting together until he is completely moved out. He lets her know that Luke is coming back to Lucky Harbor to stay for a couple of weeks. He is a Detective with the San Francisco police department and is recuperating from a bad case. He winds up letting Ali stay there until she finds a place.
When she is accused of stealing $50,000 from the office of her Ex. Luke helps her clear her name. The sexual tension between these two is very hot. I loved the book, and I gave it 5/5 stars.

more than just friends. Soon pretending to be hot-and-heavy with this hunky
firefighter feels too real to handle . . .
No-strings attachments suit
Jack just fine – perfect for keeping the risk of heartbreak away. But as Jack
and Leah break every one of their “just friends” rules, he longs to turn their
pretend relationship into something permanent. Do best friends know too much

something new about each other in a little town called Lucky Harbor?

I just finished this book last night, and it was fantastic. Jill Shalvis knows how to great story. The characters and the plot line are amazing. Leah and Jack have been friends ever since Leah moved into the house next to Jack. He has always been there for here through the hard times, when her Dad was always telling her she would never amount to nothing. He slowly started to fall in love with her and he didn’t know it. She has always loved him, but did not want to mess up their friendship. She wanted to prove that she could make something of herself, and that she was not always the screw up that her father kept calling her.
When she comes back to help her grandmother with her bakery while she recuperates, she ends up telling a little lie to Jack’s mother to make her feel better. Now her and Jack have to start acting like a real couple, but is it all an act or is it real. In the end they both profess their love after Leah nearly walks out on Jack once again.
I loved this story, with all the laughter and humorous situations that the characters are put in. I highly recommend this book and the others in the series. I give it 5/ 5 stars.
