Summary from goodreads.com:
Mallory Quinn has had enough of playing it safe. As a nurse and devoted daughter, she takes care of everyone but herself. And as the local good girl, she's expected to date Mr. Right. But for once, she'd like to take a risk on Mr. Wrong. And who could be more wrong than Ty Garrison? The mysterious new guy in town has made it clear that he's only passing through, which suits Mallory just fine. Besides, his lean, hard body and sexy smile will give her plenty to remember once he's gone...
For the first time in his life, Ty can't bear to leave. Helping this sexy seductress-in-training walk on the wild side is making him desire things he shouldn't -- including leaving the military for good. As their just-for-fun fling becomes something more, Mallory and Ty wonder if they could really be this lucky in love. After all...anything can happen in a town called Lucky Harbor.
I have heard so many rave reviews of this author's books that I finally had to see for myself what the buzz was about. However, this contemporary romance wasn't my style. I prefer (and was expecting here) a really sweet, "down home" type of tale when I do choose to read contemporary romance, which I admit is rare. The name of the game is sweet for me. Unfortunately, this book was one of those with curse words heavily sprinkled on every page, and a 'hip' voice that feels forced.
It really wasn't what I was expecting at all, but since it isn't my preferred genre, I'll leave it up to you to decide. Hopefully, the winner of the contest will enjoy this one more than I did.
Bottom Line: Not the sweet hometown story I was expecting.
