“One kiss can last forever… Becca Thorpe has uprooted her life and escaped to the beach. Now’s her chance to get away from city living, throw caution to the ocean winds, and live in the moment. Especially if the moment includes the deliciously sexy surfer she meets shortly after arriving in Lucky Harbor. Something about the dark intensity of Sam’s eyes and the thrill she gets at his touch convinces her to stay awhile. Boatbuilder and investment genius Sam Brody is a selfmade man who knows how dangerous it can be to mix business and pleasure. But he can’t resist offering Becca a job just to hear her laugh and have her near. Yet when her brother comes to town asking for help, will he tempt her back to her glamorous life in the city? Or do Sam and little Lucky Harbor have a chance to win Becca’s heart?”


I’ve really enjoyed the Lucky Harbor series, some books have been absolutley brilliant, some have just been enjoyable but they always leave me with that happy warm fuzzy feeling. Which I really enjoy.

It’s in Hiss Kiss is no different than other books in the Lucky Harbor series but I just loved Sam and Becca so much. As individual characters they really are great and as a couple they are even better! The secondary characters also help to make Sam and Becca that just little bit more enjoyable, not that they really need it but good secondary characters always help.

Becca suffered something really awful and it’s made her look at her self and her life in a different way. She writes jingles for an advertising firm so all Becca really needs is a keyboard to help her make those jingles happen. So her car loaded with her possessions and her keyboard packed she can go where ever she wants and she just so happens to end up in Lucky Harbor. While Becca might appear laid-back and letting go with the flow she isn’t always and I love the way Ms Shalvis shows us that there’s so much more to Becca than meets the eye, but also how magical Becca is and how magical Lucky Harbor and Sam are for Becca too!

Sam is just as a wonderful character as Becca, he owns his own company with his two best friends Cole and Tanner and they’ve been friends for years and have this great banter and connection that I really enjoyed reading. Sam doesn’t have the best relationship with his Dad but he accept’s that the relationship won’t change and puts up with it. Sam is such a well written character but I find it hard to describe him other than he’s hard on the outside but super squishy on the inside. Especially where Becca is involved. He knows who he is, what he wants and works hard to get where he wants to be. He doesn’t see himself ever settling down and Becca goes as such a surprise to him and the way he feels about her. She changes this for him.

It’s in His Kiss isn’t just about Sam and Becca but Cole, Tanner and Olivia and the other residents of Lucky Harbor which really help’s round out It’s in His Kiss to make an enjoyable read a super enjoyable read.

Overall, It’s in His Kiss is the best story I’ve read out of the Lucky Harbor series and will be one of those books that I will re-read for years to come!

First line: “Oh, yeah,” Becca Thorpe murmured with a sign of pleasure as she wriggled her toes in the wet sand.
