Jill Shalvis - Aussie Rules
My rating: 3/5
Mel is busy trying to keep her life together when Bo Black enters the picture. Dashing, mysterious and enticing, Bo instantly captivates her. Luckily she resists her urges long enough to realize that Bo is really there to take back ownership of the airport Mel has worked so hard to maintain. Bo also finds himself undeniably drawn to Mel while at the same time determined to remove her from "his" airport, if he can only stop getting distracted. (goodreads.com)
It ain't Lucky Harbor!
Let's say I liked it, but didn't love it as much as the Lucky Harbor novels, and comparing isn't really fair, I know.
Bo was no Ty, Mel no Mallory!
Mel, with the help of her crew, has been running the North Beach airport for the last ten years, when her mentor and role model, Sally, disappeared. Then Bo arrives from Australia, claiming the airport is his.
Jill Shalvis' wit shines through, and her ability to put emotions so wonderfully into words. But the story was no pageturner for me. I would've probably liked to have read more about the "mystery" (Bo's accusation that Sally's a fraud) and less sex.
But .... only days until the next Lucky Harbor ..... :-)
