Description

In her Avon debut, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jill Shalvis launches a fun, sexy new contemporary romance series featuring a boy, a girl, and one wily wishing well.

Choose the one guy you can't have . . .

As captain of a San Francisco Bay tour boat, Pru can handle rough seas—the hard part is life on dry land. Pru loves her new apartment and her neighbors; problem is, she's in danger of stumbling into love with Mr. Right for Anybody But Her.

Fall for him—hard . . .

Pub owner Finn O'Riley is six-foot-plus of hard-working hottie who always makes time for his friends. When Pru becomes one of them, she discovers how amazing it feels to be on the receiving end of that deep green gaze. But when a freak accident involving darts (don't ask) leads to shirtless first aid, things rush way past the friend zone. Fast.

And then tell him the truth.

Pru only wants Finn to be happy; it's what she wishes for at the historic fountain that's supposed to grant her heart's desire. But wanting him for herself is a different story—because Pru's been keeping a secret that could change everything. . . .

        Starred review from March 21, 2016
        It’s always such a pleasure to read Shalvis’s contemporary romances, and this one—the exciting first in a series—is no exception. Readers will be hooked from the moment they meet Thor, a rescue dog who’s a “tubby, afraid-of-his-own-shadow mutt,” and his human, Pru Harris, who captains a San Francisco Bay tour boat. Add in Finn O’Riley, co-owner of O’Riley’s Pub, and the heartwarming vibe is almost overwhelming; each character is cuddlier than the next. But Shalvis knows exactly how far to push the adorability, and never lets her sweet tale become saccharine. The characters are perfectly imperfect. As Pru tries her best to help Finn find a date while fighting off her own attraction to him, there lurks the little matter of those eponymous lies. They’re really nothing more than innocent omissions, but the longer Pru postpones coming clean to Finn about the secrets she’s keeping, the greater the threat to their eventual happiness together with Thor flopped contentedly at their feet. The whole package—the glamorous big city locale, the appealing secondary characters, and that Shalvis magic with snappy dialogue—portends a dynamite series. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House.

        March 1, 2016
        After losing her parents as a young teen, Pru Harris has spent her time and resources making amends for a tragedy she feels responsible for, which is why she can never fall for her intoxicating new neighbor Finn--except that she does. Pru loves her life, mostly. She's a captain for a San Francisco tour boat, she's rescued a dog who adores her, and she's just moved into a new apartment that's opened up her social life in a way she never hoped for. Her new circle of awesome friends includes pub owner Finn O'Riley, and despite a blazing attraction between them, Pru is determined to keep him at arm's length, since she has a secret that connects them through a tragic accident that left her guilt-ridden and willing to sacrifice almost everything to help its victims. But thanks to a series of clumsy events that force Finn and Pru together, their relationship zooms past friendship, leaving Pru dazed, in love, and uncertain as to how to come clean about their shared past. Yet the longer she waits, the more untold secrets become trust issues. Shalvis begins a new series that revolves around a close group of friends and a fountain with a reputation as a wish-granting matchmaker. The concept is fun, the friends are engaging and good-natured, and the romance is sexy and touching, so readers will likely overlook the fact that the conflict is a little thin and almost completely created by Pru's intense selflessness and misplaced guilt mixed with an inability to be honest and straightforward, then exacerbated by Finn's odd inability to overlook her one misstep when she's otherwise perfect for him. Which, in the end, makes it pretty easy to overcome. Shalvis has created a love story romance fans can't help but root for and grounds it in an affable community they'll adore.

        Starred review from June 15, 2016

        From the time her parents died in a car crash caused by her drunk dad, Pru Harris has been quietly trying to repair the damaged lives of the others involved. And she has almost succeeded--except for Finn O'Riley. The magnetically attractive owner of the local Irish pub gave up his baseball dreams to keep his younger brother on track after their father was killed in the accident. More than anything, Pru wants the too-serious Finn to be happy, but when their teasing friendship takes a romantic turn, Pru knows she will risk everything (especially his happiness) when she tells him who she is. A nearsighted rescue dog adds a touch of comedy to this lively and enchanting story. VERDICT A colorful San Francisco setting, a welcoming Irish pub, a group of quirky better-'n-family friends, and a capricious wishing well provide the backdrop for a romance that is both heartrending and hilarious. Shalvis's new series is a stunner. Shalvis (Nobody but You) lives in the Sierras near Lake Tahoe.

        Legend has it that the fountain in the courtyard of the building where Pru Harris lives grants wishes. A wish made there out of desperation with an equally true heart would bring a first true love in unexpected ways. Pru certainly hopes this tale is accurate, because that is what she is going to wish for. Not for herself, mind you, but for Finn O'Riley, the owner of the neighborhood pub. Finn spends his every waking moment taking care of everyone elsefrom his employees to his customers to his friends to his younger brother, Seanand as far as Pru is concerned, it is about time someone started taking care of Finn. Of course, though the fountain may grant wishes, what Pru doesn't know is exactly how unexpectedly her wish will turn out. Best-selling and RITA Awardwinning Shalvis launches the first in her Heartbreaker Bay series on a high note with a truly unforgettable romance that will delight longtime fans and new readers alike with its irresistible mix of sassy wit, snappy dialogue, and surfeit of smoking-hot sensuality.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2016, American Library Association.)
