Terrific second book i...

Terrific second book in the Heartbreaker Bay series. This one is about Willa, the pet shop owner and animal wrangler and Keane, flipper of houses and desperate cat sitter. Willa isn't too thrilled when Keane shows up at her shop, looking for some kitty daycare. She remembers Keane from high school, when he stood her up for a school dance, and still holds something of a grudge. But she can't refuse to help the cat, and the man is part of the package. Keane has been stuck with taking care of his great-aunt's cat, Petunia, and it isn't going well. Leaving her with Willa seems the best way to keep from having his house destroyed. If only he could figure out why she doesn't like him... Willa is a sometimes sweet, sometimes sassy woman with a huge heart. Willa was in and out of foster homes for most of her childhood, leaving her craving love and family, but also cautious about committing her whole heart. She wants a love of her own, and the historic fountain in the building's courtyard gets a lot of her change as she makes her wishes. She's also on a man diet right now, as her past relationships seem to have all been losers. Instead, she lavishes her attention on her animal customers, her friends, and the young women who work for her. Keane is a good looking man with a busy life. He's a self-made man, making his living by flipping houses. A late-in-life arrival to his parents, he feels that he never really fit in with his family. His childhood attempts to gain attention have led him to believe that he doesn't have the ability to love or be loved. I loved the relationship that grew between Willa and Keane. His arrival at the shop, with bejeweled cat carrier in hand and desperation in his eyes, was pretty amusing. Their conversation was fun, with some definite sparks present. Keane is attracted and intrigued, and can't get her out of his mind over the next few days. Willa is just as attracted, but determined to resist. Over the next few days they slowly became friends. I loved the scene where Keane helped with the dog wedding setup and encountered Archer and Spencer, and held his own with them. Willa fills Keane in on what her problem with him is, and he is suitably apologetic. He has matured into a much better man than his teenaged self, which puts Willa at even more risk. I loved seeing them grow closer. They have more in common than they realize, with their rocky childhoods. This gives them insight into what makes the other tick even though they can't see the truth about themselves. I especially enjoyed seeing Keane, who really believes that he can't care about anyone, show just how much he does. His care for his aunt, who he barely knows, and her cat, who gives him fits, is one of the sweetest things about him. The friendship between Keane and Willa is quickly enhanced by the attraction that continues to grow between them. The realization that what they want is more than the casual relationship that they started out with freaks both of them out, and each reacts in a different way. I ached for Willa as she discovered just what Keane had done, the hurt that she felt believing that love would be enough to overcome their issues. Keane's stunned realization of just how much he cares comes just a little too late, and he is left trying to figure out how to fix it. Meanwhile, in a conversation with Rory, Willa realizes that she has made her own mistakes. I loved seeing the help and support she got from her friends as she raced back to Keane. The ending was so sweet and romantic as both finally open their hearts all the way. The epilogue was great, and I adored the gifts that they had for each other. I loved seeing more of the group of friends. The love, friendship and support they all share is something that makes these books such incredible reads. I really loved seeing Archer, Spence and Keane all come together to deal with Willa's ex. The young women who work for Willa were also wonderful characters and showed another facet of Willa's big heart, as she helped them through the same issues she had had to deal with. My favorite secondary character of the book was the cat, Petunia, aka PITA. It was so much fun to see her go from devil's spawn to beloved pet. I really had to laugh at her ways of getting Keane's attention, from cat yak by the bed for him to step in to using his running shoes as a litter box. I loved seeing Keane's various reactions to Willa's abilities as a cat whisperer. Petunia made a grand matchmaker as her antics frequently brought the two of them together.

Another funny, fastastic love story.

I received this book from the publisher, AVONBOOKS, for a fair and honest review. Jill Shalvis has a talent for creating fictional towns that everyone wants to live in. The Trouble With Mistletoe is the second book in the Heartbreaker Bay series. This story is filled with love, laughs and at times moments to cry. This is a book that you won't want to put down. This is Willa and Keane's story. Willa runs South Bark Mutt Shop, a grooming, pet supply and sometime babysitting service. She loves animals more than people. Keane stood Willa up for a dance in high school but doesn't remember it or her. He currently has custody of his great-aunt's cat and is in desperate need of someone to take care of it while he works. Willa reluctantly agrees. Keane and Willa both have commitment issues from childhood history. As they spend time together, sparks ignite into passion.

The Trouble with Mistl...

The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis Heartbreaker Bay #2 You know how on Christmas Eve as a child you could not sleep then were up before the sun rose Christmas day to see what was under the tree? That is how I feel waiting for the next Jill Shalvis book to come out. I don't have to rattle or weigh or try to figure out if I will like what has been written because so far I have always been more than satisfied...and that is true of this book, too. Jill has created a family of friends working and living in San Francisco centered around the fictional Pacific Pier Building that has a central courtyard with a magic wish fulfilling fountain, provides living and business spaces for all of the main characters and is a charming setting for this series. I am looking forward to finding out how each one of these wonderful friends finds their happily ever after. Willa Davis has been through the foster system and when spit out at the end became a woman that helped others. She took in strays - both animal and human, gave freely of herself to improve what she could, hired women who had gone through the system as she had and created her own successful business - South Bark Mutt Shop. One morning a knock at the door before opening time put Keane Winters back into her life again. He needs daycare for his aunt's Persian cat. She remembers him from high school and her memories are not positive. He has no idea who she is or why she is so negative toward him. Over time, as she cares for the cat in her shop on an as needed basis, they begin to talk and get to know one another forming a friendship of sorts...one that leads to potential romance. BUT both Willa and Keane have had less than perfect childhoods and have issues with love and the idea of forever. They are attracted to one another but Willa worries that the more time she spends with Keane the more of her heart will be given away and since Keane says he is not the type to ever form attachments this is a big worry. I loved Willa and Keane as people, friends and lovers. They were caring, shared, were open and honest. I loved their interactions in and out of the bedroom. I admired them as people and felt their relationship made both of them stronger individuals. I also enjoyed meeting the gang of friends that are part of this series and look forward to book three in the series wondering just who will get their HEA next. NOTE: If you have ever had a cat then you will definitely be able to relate to the one in this book. Petunia is an interesting addition to the story...as are the other animals that make appearances. Thank you to the author for the copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. 5 Stars

This is such a great s...

This is such a great story! I haven't read a lot of books written by Jill Shalvis yet but everyone that I have picked up so far has been really good. This series is the second book in the Heartbreaker Bay series but it would be great as a stand alone novel. This was one of those books that just put a smile on my face while I was reading it because the story was just delightful. One of the things that I really love about this series is the wonderful cast of characters. This book features Willa and Keane. Willa owns the local pet story which added to the charm of the book for me since I just love a dose of animals in any book. Keane is in real estate and construction and Willa considers him to be completely off limits due to a past that he doesn't even remember. She still just can't say no when he comes to her for help with his aunt's cat. I loved Willa and Keane as a couple. I liked that instead of keeping secrets throughout the book this pair actually talked about things. There were a few things that they both needed to figure out but most of the issues dealt with what they each wanted in their own life. I liked the chemistry between the pair and thought that they just seemed to match up perfectly. I thought that this story had a really nice flow to it. There were some parts of the book that were serious and others that were more silly than anything else but it all worked together perfectly. The Christmas part of the story was really fairly small. There is some talk of decorations and Santa but nothing too over the top which is perfect for me. The touch of humor in the story was very well done as well. I would recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. This is a sweet and fun story filled with great characters. I am becoming quite the fan of Jill Shalvis and can't wait to see what will happen next in Heartbreaker Bay! I received an advance reader edition of this book from Avon Books via Edelweiss for the purpose of providing an honest review.
