Lucky in Love  - Suehyla El Attar, Jill Shalvis Update July 29, 2013
I got tired of trying to find an alliterated “LL” title or author for a “double decker” challenge; I just fell back on a re-read of a wonderful book. Just my cuppa tea. I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I listened it the first time!

Original read/review June 1-2, 2013

Alex O'Loughlin as Ty

★★★★½ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Young, old, male, female, Suehyla El Attar does a great job delivering the variety of voices in the fourth installation of this series. She also balances Ms. Shalvis’ unique ability to be light and fluffy and still deal with heavy topics.

I had to return to Lucky Harbor for more of these characters, if only to find out the identity of “Mysterious Cute Guy” – and with whom he connects. In fact, I got it as soon as it became available on

Turns out the MCG is Ty Garrison, Navy Seal. It is the local nurse’s luck to assist him when a freak storm arises and he is injured. And Mallory Quinn, looking to leave her comfort zone behind her for a night, is lucky. Yum.

Ty, coming in from a swim.

Too bad he can’t remember making that date with her for the hospital auction.

Once Ty acts on his attraction to Mallory, he really takes care of her needs, wherever and whenever they happen to arise. As a nurse myself, I appreciate a man who knows how to take care of a woman who gives of herself all day.

A perfect Summer (or is it late Spring?) listen. Definitely a GoodRead.
