It Had to Be You (Lucky Harbor, #7)

It Had to Be You (Lucky Harbor, #7) - Jill Shalvis I'm not going to lie, I LOVED this book! Jill Shalvis delivered a great plot and once again gave us truly relatable protagonists.I found Ali to be endeaing from the first page of the book. And how could I not when in the opening scene she's hopping up on a toilet seat to check out her outfit in the mirror (I do the same thing). But what I truly loved about Ali was her fighting spirit and the fact that she never gave up. When others would have simply walked away she was determined to make things work without the help of others. It was her fierce independence and inner strength that made her so relatable and - quite frankly - awesome.And there are no words to describe how much I absolutely LOVE Luke. In fact, he now has a spot in my list of book boyfriends. I swooned numerous times, and how could I not when he lays out lines such as:"Damn," he said, stroking the pad of his finger over her wet lower lip. "Did not see that coming.""Didn't see what coming?""You."And..."But one thing you're not, Ali, is invisible. You're standing right here, strong and beautiful-""No-""Beautiful," he repeated fiercely, stunned to find that he meant it from a very personal standpoint. He stared at her, impacted on a visceral, physical, and mental level by her. "So beautiful," he whispered, and then he kissed her.It has been a long time since a guy in a book has made me swoon like that, and Luke certainly delivered. Seriously. Where are the men like that in real life because I don't know a single guy who would ever say anything like that. Which is why I have book boyfriends. Or I need to move the Lucky Harbour.And Luke's friend Jack is also very swoony and I am looking forward to his story.
