"Once In A Lifetime" was exactly what I was looking for in a Lucky Harbor romance! Tanner really proved to be an amazing and upstanding guy! Maybe I just have a thing for the rough types. This book really had it all! A great family story, and a beautiful blooming romance.
Callie and Tanner mad the ultimate couple and having a teenage son in the mix just made the story all the more interesting! Usually I prefer to have characters that are meeting for the first time, but with Tanner and Callie their past really added something special to their relationship and story that made me fall totally in love with them as a couple.
Once again Jill Shalvis's writing really shines through. Her characters were very well developed and I had a very enjoyable experience reading "Once In A Lifetime". And I can honestly say I cannot wait to see where she takes this series next.
Being left at the altar has certainly caused Callie some pain, and returning to Lucky Harbor just seems like the right thing to do. But when her high school crush shows up even sexier than ever she is left wondering if a second chance at love is worth the risk.
As the brains behind wedding site TyingTheKnot.com, Callie sees it all: from the ring to the dress, the smiles . . . to the tears. It's that last part that keeps her single and not looking. Getting left at the altar will do that to a girl. But when Callie returns to her old hometown, she finds that her sweet high school crush is sexier than ever. And he makes it hard to remember why she's sworn off love . . .
Tanner is a deep-sea diver with a wild, adrenaline-junkie past-and now his teenage son is back in his life. How can Tanner be a role model when he's still paying for his own mistakes? It's hard enough that gorgeous Callie has appeared in town like a beautiful dream, challenging his best-laid plans to keep his heart on lockdown. Though there's something about being around her again that makes him feel like he can be the man she-and his son-deserve. Little Lucky Harbor holds their past; can it hold a beautiful new future?
