Simply Irresistible

Simply Irresistible - Jill Shalvis
"Maddie Moore's whole life needs a makeover.
In one fell swoop, Maddie loses her boyfriend (her decision) and her job (so not her decision). But rather than drowning her sorrows in bags of potato chips, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim the inheritance left by her free-spirited mother--a ramshackle inn nestled in the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington.

Starting over won't be easy. Yet Maddie sees the potential for a new home and a new career--if only she can convince her two half-sisters to join her in the adventure. But convincing Tara and Chloe will be difficult because the inn needs a big makeover too.

The contractor Maddie hires is a tall, dark-haired hottie whose eyes--and mouth--are making it hard for her to remember that she's sworn off men. Even harder will be Maddie's struggles to overcome the past, though she's about to discover that there's no better place to call home than Lucky Harbor."

My Thoughts:

I really liked this one and I look forward to reading more in this series. I laughed-out loud many times which was one of the joys about this book. I loved Jax and Maddie together, but it took me some time to warm up to the other sisters, but I think as I read the following two books that will change.
“Sorry,” he said. “Let me drop the belt-"

“No.” She held on when he would have pulled away. “Don’t. I like it.” 

Again, he lifted her face, and he smiled. “The tool belt turns you on.” 

“No.” She closed her eyes and thunked her forehead to his chest. “Little bit.”

I definitely recommend this series to contemporary romance readers, though I'm probably one of the few contemporary romance readers who haven't read this whole series lol! I think Jill Shalvis did a great job introducing the world of Lucky Harbor and some of its residents. I needed a funny read set in a contemporary setting and this book definitely supplied that.
