It Had to Be You (Lucky Harbor, #7)It Had to Be You by Jill Shalvis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

LoveIt
Another great romantic comedy in the Lucky Harbor series. And the best part is you can see the set up for the next two book. I dont think I will ever tire of this series. Ali and Luke were the perfect couple to start things off. Ali’s just found out her boyfriends been cheating and Luke’s just come back to town for a much needed break after a case when bad. Ali’s not looking for another man to disappoint her and Luke isnt wanting to get wrapped up in a case of missing money but fate has different plans for them.

Sam
Cherise has topped herself with this one. I was curious going in how she would make a sadist a likeable character. After reading this Sam is now my new favorite character (yes that changes from book to book in the Shadowlands series) I absolutely loved that we got so much out of the club time with Sam and Linda. For me I felt that was important to show them as real people who regardless of what they needed sexually and emotionally that in the outside world they were just regular people who both had survived different traumatic experiences in their lives.

I absolutely loved loved loved this book and cannot wait for more.

Drew Evans is a winner. Handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. He has loyal friends and an indulgent family. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed?

He’ll tell you he has the flu.

But we all know that’s not really true.

Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. She refuses to let anything – or anyone – derail her path to success. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin. The professional competition she brings is unnerving, his attraction to her is distracting, his failure to entice her into his bed is exasperating.

Then, just when Drew is on the cusp of having everything he wants, his overblown confidence threatens to ruin it all. Will he be able untangle his feelings of lust and tenderness, frustration and fulfillment? Will he rise to the most important challenge of his life?

Can Drew Evans win at love?

Tangled is not your mother’s romance novel. It is an outrageous, passionate, witty narrative about a man who knows a lot about women…just not as much as he thinks he knows. As he tells his story, Drew learns the one thing he never wanted in life, is the only thing he can’t live without.

Cindy’s Review: Hilarious view of life and relationships from a womanizer who gets bit hard by the love bug. Drew Evans is a spoiled, silver spooned love em and leave em man that makes no apologies for it. What he wants in business or in a woman he gets. That is until he meets Katherine Brooks.

I totally applaud the author for bringing something fresh to the table. Reading a book totally from the man’s POV was refreshing change, we got the good, the bad and the don’t judge me look inside a man’s thinking.

If your looking for a new romantic comedy author that brings a much needed change to the formulistic romances out there give this author a try. I cant wait to read what’s next from her.

Janet’s Review What a refreshingly different read. Tangled by Emma Chase is written in a man’s point of view. I was at first leery about this because I knew the author was female, but a can honestly said that I quickly forgot that fact, because she did such a good job giving the readers the male point of view.
I also enjoyed that Ms. Chase wrote the book in a way that the male character was talking to us, he was talking directly to the reader.
Drew Evans is a successful, rich good-looking man and he is a male whore. He makes no bones about it. Drew is happy with his life until he meets his match in one Katherine Brooks. She is beautiful, smart and determined. She doesn’t fall for Drew million-dollar smile or his refined charm, that first night when they meet at a nightclub. This is a first for our playboy, but he quickly moves on to his next conquest.
But after spending the week-end thinking about the beauty he meet and regretting not having pursued her, he is shocked to be introduced to his new associate a work, staring into Kate’s eyes once again. Drew has a strict policy, he doesn’t mix work and play. He never sleeps with someone from the office.
This is where the fun begins! The verbal sparring between these two characters was fantastic. Some of the scenes where funny as hell, I couldn’t stop laughing through most of the book, kept shaking my head saying, Yep that’s a man for ya! I loved watching Kate whole her own against Drew. Whatever he can dish out, she serves right back at him!!! Things become even more interesting when they are assigned to compete against each other for a big account at the investment Banking firm where they work.
I felt that Dawn and Drew had wonderful chemistry.
I totally enjoyed t Tangled and would highly recommend it to anyone who was looking for a romance book with a little something different. I can see myself reading this book again and again.
