Review- Sweet Little Lies by Jill Shalvis


Choose the one guy you can’t have . . .

As captain of a San Francisco Bay tour boat, Pru can handle rough seas—the hard part is life on dry land. Pru loves her new apartment and her neighbors; problem is, she’s in danger of stumbling into love with Mr. Right for Anybody But Her.

Fall for him—hard . . .

Pub owner Finn O’Riley is six-foot-plus of hard-working hottie who always makes time for his friends. When Pru becomes one of them, she discovers how amazing it feels to be on the receiving end of that deep green gaze. But when a freak accident involving darts (don’t ask) leads to shirtless first aid, things rush way past the friend zone. Fast.

And then tell him the truth.

Pru only wants Finn to be happy; it’s what she wishes for at the historic fountain that’s supposed to grant her heart’s desire. But wanting him for herself is a different story—because Pru’s been keeping a secret that could change everything. . . .

I am a huge Jill Shalvis fan as you all know. So if there is a new series by her I will jump on it obviously. Sweet Little Lies by Jill Shalvis is the first book in her Heartbreaker Bay series. Unlike her other series which are small town romances this one is based in San Francisco and is a bit of a change. I'm just gonna come out and say it. I LOVED Sweet Little Lies. It was a lovely romance with just the right amount of everything.

Pru is our heroine. She is a the captain of a boat for San Francisco Bay tours. She works hard and she is trying extremely hard to make up for her parents' mistake. Pru was a really sweet heroine. She has a mind of her own and she is ever so willing to help others out. She blames herself for a past incident and still finds it hard to forgive herself. Then she meets Finn and his friends and even though she doesn't want to, she gets her feelings all tangled up.

Finn on the other hand was a silent and strong hero. Finn and his younger brother own a pub which is right across from the apartment where Pru lives. After their father's death Finn had to step up and take care  of his brother and the pub and he's kinda forgotten how to have fun. Then he meets Pru and he can't help but be pulled into her orbit. Like all JS heroes, I loved Finn. He was the perfect combination of protective and possessive. He had a core group of friends who he stuck to but he was more than happy to include Pru in.

Pru and Finn were great together. As the title suggests Pru is hiding things from Finn but Jill Shalvis has a way of writing where there is no excess drama or angst. Pru and Finn had amazing chemistry and the sexy times were plenty. They shared an intimacy and balanced what the other was missing. 

Another thing I always appreciate about Jill Shalvis' books is that we not only get two amazing leads but we also get a full fledged cast of supporting characters. I loved Pru's friend. I loved Finn's friends even more. They were the right amount of nosy, providing comic relief when needed. I hope all of them get their own books. If you are looking for a feel good romance which will leave you with a smile on your face at the end of it, get your hands on Sweet Little Lies.
