Sweet Little Lies - Jill Shalvis

Choose the one guy you can’t have . . .

As captain of a San Francisco Bay tour boat, Pru can handle rough seas—the hard part is life on dry land. Pru loves her new apartment and her neighbors; problem is, she’s in danger of stumbling into love with Mr. Right for Anybody But Her.
Fall for him—hard . . .
Pub owner Finn O’Riley is six-foot-plus of hard-working hottie who always makes time for his friends. When Pru becomes one of them, she discovers how amazing it feels to be on the receiving end of that deep green gaze. But when a freak accident involving darts (don’t ask) leads to shirtless first aid, things rush way past the friend zone. Fast.
And then tell him the truth.

Pru only wants Finn to be happy; it’s what she wishes for at the historic fountain that’s supposed to grant her heart’s desire. But wanting him for herself is a different story—because Pru’s been keeping a secret that could change everything. . .

Coming June 28th!

Finn nodded a silent hello in Pru’s direction.
She stilled, and then craned her neck, looking behind her.
No one there.  Just herself, dripping all over his floor.
She turned back and found Finn looking quietly amused.  Their gazes locked and held for a long beat, like maybe he was taking her pulse from across the room, absorbing the fact that she was drenched and breathless.  The corners of his mouth twitched.  She’d amused him again.
People shifted between them.  The place was crowded as always, but when the way was clear again, Finn was still looking at her, steady and unblinking, those dark green eyes flickering with something other than amusement now, something that began to warm her from the inside out…
Pru considered herself fairly brave and maybe a little more than fairly adventurous -- but not necessarily forward.  It wasn’t easy for her to connect with people.
Which was the only excuse she had for jerking her gaze away, pretending to eye the room.
…Her eyes, the traitors, swiveled right back to him.
He pointed at her.
“Me?” she asked, even though he couldn’t possibly hear her from across the place.
With a barely there smile, he gave her a finger crook.

Yep.  Her.

Pru is determined to right a wrong her parents committed many years ago.  She can't let the past go and live her life.  Until she goes to right a wrong for the hottie mctottie Finn.  She wishes that he would find true love at the local wishing fountain & tourist draw.  The problem is she can't stay away even though she's determined his true love can't be her.  
I loved Pru, she did what most people would do in her situation and was very believable.  Finn is sexy, caring and loyal.  The chemistry between Finn and Pru was off the charts and had me wrapped in their story. The secondary characters made the story complete and left me ready for their stories. The story is well written and I thoroughly enjoyed the fun and  unique sense of humor used throughout the story.  I must say this is my favorite Jill Shalvis book to date.  If you're looking for a witty romance that's steamier than a hot tub in July, I highly recommend Sweet Little Lies.
