Review: At Last by Jill Shalvis

Amy Michaels loves her new life in Lucky Harbor. A waitress in the local diner, she's looking forward to her first weekend hike through the mountains. But when a wrong turn takes her off the trail, she finds herself up close and personal with forest ranger Matt Bowers. And even though she's tempted to kiss that sexy smile right off his face, she won't make the mistake of getting involved with the town heartthrob.

A former cop whose life went south, Matt doesn't let anyone get too close. But something about the feisty beauty caught his eye the moment he first saw her in the diner. After a hot night under a starry sky, Matt can't deny their attraction-or the fact that for the first time in a long time, he feels the stirrings of something more. Now it's up to Matt to help Amy see that, no matter what is in their past, together they can build a future in Lucky Harbor.

At Last is the second book featuring the Chocoholics we were introduced to in Lucky in Love, this book featuring Amy Michaels.  Amy is a difficult character to get to know, particularly because while she's smart-mouthed about a lot of things, she's closemouthed about her past prior to her arrival in Lucky Harbor.  In a way that's refreshing; as Matt aka "Ranger Hot Buns" gets to know Amy, we the reader learn more about her as well. 

I thought Ms. Shalvis did a great job building Amy and Matt's romance, but what I really loved was the bromance between Ty (whom we met in Lucky in Love), Matt, and Josh (whom we will meet in Forever and a Day). 

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