I received this copy from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest unbiased review. I am a huge fan of Jill Shalvis's work so when I saw that the next book in the Cedar Ridge series was available I jumped at the chance to read it. Jill does a great job of incorporating romance, humor and profound story lines in her book. She catches your attention from the moment that you read the first chapter in the book and holds it until the very last line.
One of the best things about her books are the humor that she incorporates, for instance one of my favorite quotes in the book is when Sophie try to resist Jacob and says, "You wielded around your power like... like you're some male alpha dog whipping it out to pee all over everything and make your territory!"Jill just has that humor that makes you laugh out loud when sitting in a quiet space at in a coffee shop while reading your book.
In addition to the humor and romance Jill did a great job of touching on tough subjects too, like the loss of a friend, divorce and struggles families face. These type of subjects create depth to the book and make you want to keep reading the book to find out how it is solved.
Once again Shalvis has created a well rounded story that appeals to readers of all ages. Can't wait to read her next book that comes out.
