I loved "Forever and a Day"; Jill Shalvis sure knows how to write a fun contemporary romance with just enough pull for the reader to instantly fall in love with the characters. This book is number six but can be read as a standalone. I have read "Simply Irresistible" the first Lucky Harbor novel so I was familiar with the small town of Lucky Harbor. There was barely any mention of previous characters so this book is as good a place to start as any. But if you are anything like me, and can't not start from the beginning then go check out "Simply Irresistible".
"Forever and a day" is a light hearted romance that hooks the reader from the first page. With characters that warm your heart, and make you feel for their problems. You can't go wrong with this sweet summer read!
The characters of “Forever and a Day” are complex, bull headed on Anna and Josh's parts, and capable of loving anyone who will return the favor. Grace is the adopted daughter of incredibly talented and successful parents. They have always wanted their daughter to be successful, but never stopped to ask if the things they set out for her were really what she wanted. I loved that Grace found herself in Lucky Harbor like many of Ms. Shalvis's characters.
On the other hand Josh knows who he is but never gets to spend any time with his family. With a tough past Josh is just looking for someone who will take care of his family while he is at work. But what he wasn't expecting was that Grace would not only be taking care of his son, sister, and antichrist dog, but she would be the one person that he would let take care of him. Josh had me from the first page; he had the looks, the brains, and the heart that comes with an Alpha's soul. He would never let anything bad happen to his family or the ones he cares about and I loved him for that. Of course he had his "stupid love" moments like Ms. Shalvis's characters likes to say, but he was quick to realize his mistakes.
What are you waiting for? Josh and Grace are waiting to accept you into their world with open arms. Go on…. go get your copy today!
