Ali Winters is not having a good day. Her boyfriend left her, everyone in town thinks she's a thief, and now she's about to be kicked out of her home. Her only shot at keeping a roof over her head and clearing her name is to beg for help from a police detective who's as sexy as he is stern....

After a high-profile case goes wrong, Luke Hanover returns to his hometown for some peace and quiet. Instead he finds a bombshell brunette in a heap of trouble. As he helps Ali put her world back together, the pieces of Luke's own life finally seem to fall into place. Is this the start of a sizzling fling? Or are Luke and Ali on the brink of something big in a little town called Lucky Harbor?

My thoughts…

I loved this one! It Had to Be You is a funny contemporary romance that’s sure to touch your heart. It’s book #7 in the Lucky Harbor series by author Jill Shalvis.

Both Ali & Luke aren’t looking for love. Ali’s boyfriend has dumped her, she’s lost her job, and she doesn’t have a place to live anymore since the lease on her boyfriends house is up.

Enter Luke Hanover. He’s the owner of said house and walks in on Ali while she’s on the phone with the ex-boyfriend. Did I mention she’s dressed in only her bra and panties?

Right from the beginning these two shared a strong attraction. Neither is looking to get involved but sometimes things don’t happen the way you plan for them too.

The sexual scenes within this book are relatively mainstream and not overly explicit.

The suspense element kept me guessing until the very end. I never did figure it out until it was revealed. I love books like that.

Next up is Leah & Jack’s story and I can’t wait to read it.

If you haven’t read the Lucky Harbor series you are seriously missing out. It’s one of my favorite series.
