Review: Head Over Heels by Jill Shalvis

Breaking rules and breaking hearts
Free-spirited Chloe lives life on the edge. Unlike her soon-to-be married sisters, she isn't ready to settle into a quiet life running their family's newly renovated inn. But soon her love of trouble--and trouble with love-draws the attention of the very stern, very sexy sheriff who'd like nothing better than to tame her wild ways.

Suddenly Chloe can't take a misstep without the sheriff hot on her heels. His rugged swagger and his enigmatic smile are enough to make a girl beg to be handcuffed. For the first time, instead of avoiding the law, Chloe dreams of surrender. Can this rebel find a way to keep the peace with the straitlaced sheriff? Or will Chloe's colorful past keep her from a love that lasts . . . and the safe haven she truly wants in a town called Lucky Harbor?

After the events of The Sweetest Thing, it seemed obvious that Chloe and Sheriff Sawyer would hook up.   They didn't like each other, for one thing; they always seemed to antagonize and deliberately put the other on edge.  But their dance of mutual dislike is one that often overshadows a hidden sexual attraction. 

Given Chloe's need for thrills, Sawyer is the one who ultimately ends up rescuing her from her attempts gone bad.  Because of their opposing natures, they are completely perfect for one another, a solid match from the get-go.  I hope we get to revisit them in future Lucky Harbor books. 

(A very special thank you to Forever Romance, Hachette Book Group, and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of Head Over Heels.)
