If she tells him that she is the reason that he did not have two extra years with Hannah, his now dead wife, it will be the end of their relationship.
Ben is ready to get back to living his life. He knew he will always miss his wife, but he can not always live in the past.He knows that his wife would want him to live on and find somebody new. Aubrey has always interested him, and now he wants her even more. She is not afraid of taking chances. When he agrees to help her uncle to do the renovations, it is just an excuse to be closer to her. This is a story of taking chances and learning to let go of the past., for the future is what you make it to be. The emotional baggage, and trust issue that they have to overcome helped to move the story line long, and helped the character development. I really loved the story of ONCE IN A LIFETIME and I give it 5/ 5 stars. This is a great addition to the Lucky Harbor series.

“ALWAYS ON MY MIND” BY JILL SHALVIS

ALWAYS ON MY MIND

Today, I just started reading ALWAYS ON MY MIND BY JILL SHALVIS. This is part of her Lucky Harbor Series, featuring Jack Harper and Leah Sullivan, who are longtime friends who grew up together in Lucky Harbor. Only Jack does not know that Leah has had a thing for him ever since they were young, but now Leah tells a lie to his Mom that they are a couple so she won’t think she is the reason that Jack can’t find a lasting relationship. This makes his mom so happy that he can’t tell her it is not true, so they continue the lie. Will their friendship suffer, or will LOVE, AND COMMITMENT BLOOM OUT OF THIS LIE.

I am only 38 pages into the book and it is already getting good. So once I finish it I will give you my review and recommendations on the book.  So happy reading.  : )

Book Description

Publication Date:September 24, 2013
“Count on Jill Shalvis for a witty, steamy, unputdownable love story.” — Robyn Carr, New York Times bestselling author of Harvest Moon
THERE’S NOTHING LIKE THE REAL THING After dropping out of pastry school and messing up her big break on a reality cooking show, Leah Sullivan needs to accomplish something in her life. But when she returns home to Lucky Harbor, she finds herself distracted by her best friend, Jack Harper. In an effort to cheer up Jack’s ailing mother, Dee, Leah tells a little fib – that she and Jack are 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 about each other to risk falling in love? Or will Jack and Leah discover something new about each other in a little town called Lucky Harbor?
