About the book

After a lifetime on the move, Ivy Snow is an expert in all things temporary—schools, friends, and way too many Mr. Wrongs. Now that she owns a successful taco truck in San Francisco and an apartment to call home, Ivy’s reinvented life is on solid ground. And she’s guarded against anything that can rock it. Like the realities of a past she’s worked hard to cover up. And especially Kel O’Donnell. Too hot not to set off alarms, he screams temporary. If only his whispers weren’t so delightfully naughty and irresistible.

Kel, an Idaho sheriff and ranch owner, is on vacay, but Ivy’s a spicy reason to give his short-terms plans a second thought. Best of all, she’s a tonic for his untrusting heart, burned once and still in repair. But when Ivy’s past intrudes on a perfect romance, Kel fears that everything she’s told him has been a perfect lie. Now, if only Ivy’s willing to share, Kel will fight for a true love story.

My Thoughts

The Heartbreaker Bay gang won my heart from the very start. I loved reading each character’s story and always eagerly await the next book in the series.

Ivy was a bit of a mystery character for me as I only recalled her character from the previous books but other than running the food truck and being a friend of Sadie’s I didn’t recall much about her character. Watching her character unfold was like watching a flower bloom. She is such a complex character and my heart went out to her as you could see her wanting to reach out to the rest of the Heartbreaker Bay group to form deeper relationships but is also afraid of doing so. The chemistry between Ivy and Kel is so thick you could cut it with a knife. Both have their flaws and trust issues but as a reader I kept rooting for them to overcome it all and find their happily ever after.

As in the other books in the series we get to see the past couples and how they are doing which thrilled me as I really loved Caleb and wanted more of him. I can’t wait to see what comes next for this group!
