At Last by Shalvis, Jill ( Author ) ON Aug-23-2012, Paperback

At Last - Jill Shalvis OMG THIS BOOK! Of all of the Jill Shalvis books that I've read, At Last is by far my favourite. It deserves more than 5 stars. What I loved the most was the nature of Amy and Matt's relationship. They know each other from around Lucky Harbour and while Amy fights her attraction to Matt, the ex-Chicago cop turned forest ranger, Matt is steadfast and patient in his effort to gain Amy's affection.And speaking of Matt, could he be any hotter?! I loved everything about him; his laid-back personality, steady and calm nature, and how protective he is of Amy. And while many men take the protectiveness too far, Matt knows when to back off with Amy and that only adds to his attractiveness. I also adore Amy. Amy's past is tough and this has led her to keep people at arm's length. But she is hard-working and independent; I love her pluckiness and determination in trying to retrace her grandmother's journey in Lucky Harbour.The chemistry that exists between Matt and Amy is amazing; if I had been Amy I doubt I would have been able to resist Matt as long as she did. Especially when he dishes out the swooniness."Again?" she breathed, melting when he opened his mouth and sucked a little patch of skin."Oh, yeah, again," he said. "And then again.""We won't be able to walk."He nipped her collar bone and headed south toward her breast. "I'm going to be so good to you, you won't care."On a side note, I freaking love Lucille. And how can I not when she can totally embarrass a tough forest ranger.Lucille hitched a thumb at him. "You fell in Ranger Hot Buns's forest?"This had Amy flashing a rare real smile. "What did you just call him?""Ranger Hot Buns," Lucille said. "Are you telling me you haven't seen the side poll on Facebook to rank the town's current hotties?"Christ. Matt slouched down into his seat.So I'm off to pack my bag and hire some movers. I'm relocating to Lucky Harbour to snag my own hottie.
