Maddie isn’t having the best week. As if losing her job and breaking up with an abusive ex wasn’t bad enough – she’s now on her way to Lucky Harbor, a sleepy, coastal town to meet her estranged sisters Chloe and Tara to figure out what to do with the ramshackle old inn her mother left the threesome in her will. Oh and she almost ran over the hottest guy in town – Jax Cullen. So yeah…not the best week. As Maddie throws herself into renovating the inn despite bickering sisters and the attentions of a swoonalicious lawyer turned contractor, she discovers that sometimes happiness blossoms exactly where you weren’t looking for it.
Sometimes a girl just wants a cute, steamy fun romance to remind her that life isn’t all bad and SIMPLY IRRESISTABLE was just the tonic for me. Jill Shalvis has a style of writing that makes her books the equivalent of drinking a yummy hot chocolate curled up in front of a roaring fire. They just make you feel warm and gooey inside and you can’t help but close the book feeling light and happy.
I loved Maddie’s character and outlook on life.Read more ›
So this book is basically as cheesy and cliché as any other romance novel I've ever read but I have to say I really loved it. There was something so honest and lovely about Maddie, I could really find myself liking her a lot. I loved her growing relationship with her sisters and seeing them bond and become closer to each other throughout the story was really nice to read.
And Jax. Oh..my..god. Can he be my new book boyfriend please? Or more like manfriend because Jax ladies and gentlemen, is all man. He was clever, strong, fit, kind, generous and understanding. Literally perfect. Like PERFECT! And that should annoy me because it's so unrealistic but I couldn't help but fall in love with Jax at the same time as Maddie. There was so many great chemistry-laden scenes between Maddie and Jax that left me feeling a bit breathless. The sex scenes were feisty in a classy way and oh so spicy.
There were definite annoying parts where Maddie and Jax seemed to circle each other around the same problems and repeat their arguments. While Maddie's past was definitely worth her feelings about men, I felt like it was repeated enough to start being irritating which I didn't like feeling about such an issue. I don't think the very dramatic fire scene had to happen either. It felt a bit unnecessary.
Overall I loved the story, the romance and the introduction to the town and its people. I'll definitely be continuing with this series.
Makes you smile a lot. Loved Phoebe' s quotes at the beginning of each chapter so much I've committed a few to memory for future reference.
Now on to read Tara and Chloe' s stories
I came across this series a couple of months back, and bought the first few in the series in one go.
Then they sat there for the next couple of months and I nearly forgot about them!
Why!! I loved this book.
This book just made me happy! There is no other way to describe it. Happy happy happy! I do not think a book has ever made me feel so warm and fuzzy before!
I think I was smiling or sighing (like aww) throughout this entire book!
The characters are great, the relationships and how they are described and built up, great. It was humorous and fun and light-hearted.
There was not one character I did not like.
Watching the relationship between Jax and Maddie build was lovely! Watching the relationship between the sisters build was even better.
There was no big angsty misunderstanding, no villains waiting in the wings. Just a sweet, funny romance about two people coming together and coming to believe they deserve what is happening.
