4.5 Stars - Spence, I ...

4.5 Stars - Spence, I was looking forward to his story. He is kind and sweet and focused on work and I loved that Colbie was a distraction. Being strong and caring, she was a good match for Spence. The two had wonderful chemistry and I really enjoyed the book. There were a few good laughs, some sigh worthy moments and a wonderful cast of characters. I mean come on, who doesn't love that crew of friends Spence has! I am looking forward to the next book in the series. ~Paragraphs and Petticoats~

Chasing Christmas Eve ...

Chasing Christmas Eve by Jill Shalvis A Heartbreaker Bay Novel #4 What is the best gift one can be given for the holidays? Love...or...perhaps a wonderful romance that has great characters that care about one another and then learn to love a person that shows up on their doorstep just a few weeks before Christmas. Oh...and characters that make you WANT them to be together because they make one another so very happy. I have enjoyed every one of this author's books that I have read. The Heartbreaker Bay series is filled with people that I wish I could be friends with - oh - to be able to walk into one of the businesses to chat with any of them or perhaps to go and wish at the magical fountain or to be there immersed in their camaraderie...or have a cup of coffee or a tasty cupcake or a girls' night out - wouldn't that be grand? Anyway, this is the story of Colbie and Spence. Colbie has been responsible for way too much for many years and is in need of a break SO she takes one without telling those near and dear to her where she has gone. When she arrives in San Francisco she ends up wet and bedraggled and shortly in the arms of Spence, owner of that magic fountain I mentioned in the previous paragraph. Colbie is looking for her writing block to be unblocked and Spence is diligently working to overcome a glitch in the most recent invention he is working on. They know that should anything happen between them there is an expiration date because Colbie is returning to New York in three weeks. In spite of or perhaps because of that timeline...things heat up...they enjoy one another...try to avoid feelings for one another...but...not so easily achieved...and...just how can there be a future for them with three thousand miles between his abode and hers? Spence and Colbie are great together. I really loved their times socializing with each other and others...and also enjoyed their steamier interactions, too. The group Spence considers "family" are wonderful so catching up with the three couples that had their stories told in the first three books was a special treat. AND it is marvelous knowing that there are so many great characters mentioned in the book that so richly deserve to have their own HEA's in the future - that means that there will be MORE books in the series for me to look forward to. I am definitely not ready to say goodbye to this series any time soon! Thank you to the author for the ARC of this novel - This is my honest review. 5 Stars

YA author Colbie Albri...

YA author Colbie Albright fled to San Francisco desperately trying to get over a case of writer's block. She accidently falls into a fountain and is rescued by Spencer Baldwin, genius tech guy and workaholic. There's an immediate attraction and Spencer offers to show Colbie around town, both knowing this will be a short-term relationship as Colbie has to return to her responsibilities in New York City. I haven't read any of the other books in the Heartbreaker Bay series though I plan to go back now. I always enjoy Jill Shalvis books and this was no exception. Colbie and Spencer are two of my favorite hero/heroine prototypes, geeky and totally involved in their work, and I loved how they learned to adapt to each other's needs and make their relationship work. This is a lovely story for the holidays or any time.

Chasing Christmas Eve ...

Chasing Christmas Eve by Jill Shalvis is a 2017 Avon publication. A light, slightly offbeat, and humorous holiday tale set in romantic San Francisco. This fourth installment in the Heartbreaker Bay series features two adorable socially awkward workaholics, in Colbie and Spencer, who literally take a fall... right into the 'Make a Wish' fountain. Colbie is a famous Young Adult author experiencing a case of writer's block, under a hard and a looming deadline, who needs a break from all the pressure and from her co-dependent family who is putting a serious drain on her mojo. She decides to run away for a little vacation so she recharge and recapture her love of writing. San Francisco was not her first choice of destinations, but it just might be her best choice, after all. Spencer is a very successful tech genius, but that success has come at a price. His workaholic habits have already cost him one serious relationship, making him wary of getting involved with anyone again. But, when he meets Colbie, the two seem to really hit it off! That's great, right? The two 'get' each other like no one else ever has. But, Colbie has promised her family she would be home by Christmas Eve, when she will have to return to the daily grind and back to her all responsibilities. Can the couple find a way to make their newfound relationship work or will they have to say goodbye forever? I've struggled to find just the right word to describe this novel. Compared to the other books in the series, this one is a little- eccentric? Maybe? It's quirky, a little goofy, and zany and lots of fun. Of course, It goes without saying, there are some hilarious scenes, and the dialogue is snappy. The story has plenty of energy, the tone is very light, but the emotional elements are more subdued. There are a few minor drawbacks, however, such as Colbie's substitutions for 'colorful metaphors', which was cute in the beginning, but sort of lost their charm by the end of the book- at least for me. The sexual chemistry is hot and steamy, but due to time constraints, I suppose, the build -up was too short, which stunted the emotional growth in the relationship. But, the romantic comedy format is nice and maybe even somewhat of a relief.. There are a few touching and gooey moments, of course, but it did give me a break from the sugary sweet and sappy, overly emotional, heart string tugging holiday tales I'm normally inundated with. So, personally, had no problems with the lighter approach in this one. For the most part, I enjoyed this slightly unconventional Romcom, which really did lighten my mood and made me literally laugh out loud once or twice. So, if you are in the market for a light, fun, and sexy holiday story, this is the book for you. Enjoy! 3.5 stars

I just loved this stor...

I just loved this story! I have found this series to be consistently good so I was really excited to get my hands on this newest installment. I was even more excited to read this one once I discovered it would be Spence's story since I have really enjoyed his character in the previous books in the series. I had pretty high expectations going into this book and it met or exceeded every one of them. I had such a good time reading this charming romance. Spence and Colbie are the focus of this story. Spence has had a role in the previous books in this series that revolves around a group of friends and the building that they live and work in. Spence happens to own the building and is the genius of the group. He spends his time inventing and working out complex problems. Colbie is a big name author and the stress of her life has prompted her to run away from everything for just a bit. Colbie meets Spence during an unfortunate encounter at a rather famous fountain. They are so much fun to see together from that very first meeting. Colbie decides to stay for a while so that she can get the break that she so desperately needs. Spence and Colbie were just adorable together. They had great chemistry from the very beginning of the story. There were so many moments that brought a huge grin my face and I may have chuckled out loud a time or too. The banter between this pair was really well done and provided a nice balance to the hotter sections of the story. I would highly recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. This book is the fourth book in the Heartbreaker Bay but it could easily be read as a stand alone novel. Readers of the series will enjoy seeing all of the characters featured in earlier books in the series. I can't wait to see what happens next in Heartbreaker Bay! I received an advance reader edition of this book from Avon Books via Edelweiss.
