Head Over Heels - Jill Shalvis



Released December 2011

Reviewed by Tracy Farnsworth

Chloe Traeger's never stayed in one place for long. After inheriting one-third of a run-down oceanside inn, Chloe reluctantly gets to know her half-sisters (Tara from The Sweetest Thing (A Lucky Harbor Novel) and Maddie from Simply Irresistible (A Lucky Harbor Novel)
) and starts selling her homemade skin creams and beauty products around the small town of Lucky Harbor. Her attraction to the town's sheriff, Sawyer Thompson, makes no sense, but she can't help but find herself enchanted by his charms, even when they're arguing.

Sawyer doesn't have time in his life for a woman, so why is it that he can't get Chloe out of his head. After one kiss, it's clear that he'll never be able to get enough of Chloe, but with his job, he can't afford to get into a steady relationship.

These two polar opposites want nothing more than to stay away from each other, but sometime fate has other plans...

Head Over Heels is the third novel in the Lucky Harbor series and I'm thrilled that the stories will keep coming, even though this rounds out each of the sisters' stories. I've liked Chloe from the start. She's enough of a rebel that she keeps everyone on their toes, but she definitely has a soft side too. Pairing her with Sawyer, a straight-laced sheriff with a long history, worked well and really made him one of my favorite heroes from this series. Don't get me wrong, I adored Jax, but Sawyer earned a higher score on my list of favorite fictional heroes.

If you haven't read any of the Lucky Harbor series, I highly recommend starting from the beginning. It's not that you need to read them in order, they do stand alone, but they're such a charming trio of books that I can't imagine wanting to bypass any of them.
