Mallory Quinn has had enough of playing it safe. As a nurse and devoted daughter, she takes care of everyone but herself. And as the local good girl, she's expected to date Mr. Right. But for once, she'd like to take a risk on Mr. Wrong. And who could be more wrong than Ty Garrison? The mysterious new guy in town has made it clear that he's only passing through, which suits Mallory just fine. Besides, his lean, hard body and sexy smile will give her plenty to remember once he's gone... 

For the first time in his life, Ty can't bear to leave. Helping this sexy seductress-in-training walk on the wild side is making him desire things he shouldn't, including leaving the military for good. As their just-for-fun fling becomes something more, Mallory and Ty wonder if they could really be this lucky in love. After all . . . anything can happen in a town called Lucky Harbor.


My Thoughts on the Book:

I read Lucky in Love after reading the following books in the series At Last & Forever and a Day. Although I loved it, Jill's books are always so much fun, and I loved seeing Matt, Amy, Grace & Josh again, I have to say that this is probably my least favourite among these three, but still so good & a fun contemporary romance. 
Here we see when Mallory, Amy & Grace share for the first time a chocolate cake, and the following scene with Ty - so funny. This whole book was just so funny & yummy.   
I really liked Mallory & Ty as characters, and they were great together of course, and Lucille as always cracked me up.
So, if you're a fan of fun contemporary romances in small-town settings, with quirky & funny secondary characters, then I highly recommend this book and the series!
