~Review: It’s in His Kiss by Jill Shalvis~

Becca Thorpe has uprooted her life and escaped to the beach. Now's her chance to get away from city living, throw caution to the ocean winds, and live in the moment. Especially if the moment includes the deliciously sexy surfer she meets shortly after arriving in Lucky Harbor. Something about the dark intensity of Sam's eyes and the thrill she gets at his touch convinces her to stay awhile.

Boatbuilder and investment genius Sam Brody is a self-made man who knows how dangerous it can be to mix business and pleasure. But he can't resist offering Becca a job just to hear her laugh and have her near. Yet when her brother comes to town asking for help, will he tempt her back to her glamorous life in the city? Or do Sam and little Lucky Harbor have a chance to win Becca's heart?

Overall Rating:  4.25 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Jill Shalvis has done a fantastic job in her newest release in the Lucky Harbor series.  This is a story about finding love and discovering what life is really all about.  It is the tale of a journey that leads to a homecoming.  The characters are well developed and beautifully created.  I was drawn in immediately by the sexy surfer dudes and by the stunningly beautiful person that was Becca Thorpe.

Becca Thorpe is running away.  She has lived her whole life in her brother's shadow, taking care of him and his musical career.  Extremely talented in her own right, Becca doesn't have the confidence needed to believe in who she is.  Taking an extended vacation to the West Coast, she stops in a town called Lucky Harbor.  Attracted immediately to the quaint town, Becca finds a place to rent and decides to stay on for a while.  When she crosses paths with the SGS (sexy grumpy surfer), Sam Brody her life will never be the same.

Sam Brody has always taken care of everyone important in his life.  He had always taken care of others, his dead beat dad, his childhood buddies now his business partners, but not himself.  Sure he eats, sleeps, exercises and takes care of his body’s needs, however, the one thing he's never considered is love.  By some chance of fate, in walks Becca Thorpe into his life and all of his preconceived notions are thrown out the window!  She is beauty personified to him, inside and out. Will Sam be able to recognize the spectacular love that he has with Becca before it's too late?  Can Becca finally believe in herself?  Read this book to find out.  ~TSRBR
