Title: Second Chance Summer
Author: Jill Shalvis
Series: Cedar Ridge, #1
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Date: June 30, 2015
Cedar Ridge, Colorado, is famous for crisp mountain air, clear blue skies, and pine-scented breezes. And it’s the last place Lily Danville wants to be. But she needs a job, and there’s an opening at the hottest resort in her hometown. What has her concerned is the other hot property in Cedar Ridge: Aidan Kincaid-firefighter, rescue worker, and heartbreaker. She never could resist that devastating smile . . .
The Kincaid brothers are as rough and rugged as the Rocky Mountains they call home. Aidan has always done things his own way, by his own rules. And never has he regretted anything more than letting Lily walk out of his life ten years ago. If anyone has ever been in need of rescuing, she has. What she needs more than anything are long hikes, slow dances, and sizzling kisses. But that can only happen if he can get her to give Cedar Ridge-and this bad boy-a second chance . . .
There are some authors you read because you know their books will make you feel good. Jill Shalvis is one of those authors.
Although there is strife in her books, there is also humor and the characters are always likable.
This first book in her new series is no exception.
I loved Aiden and Lily. They try so hard not to form a relationship because of their past together, but lust/love will find a way.
The secondary characters are great and I can’t wait for their stories. I have already preordered book two in the series, My Kind of Wonderful. Book three, Nobody But You, is not available to order yet, but I will definitely get it as well.
The only thing missing in this series is an animal to love. I have gotten used to those characters in Shalvis’ books as well and this one does not have one. Oh well, the humans are great all by themselves.
