I love Jill Shalvis! She's one of my go to authors. This second chapter of her Cedar Ridge series kept me hooked!

First of all Hudson in the last book was scrumptious. Well, all of the brothers are, really. There is just something about brothers who have an ongoing dare to wear ladies panties that just... sigh...

Hudson was O.M.G. adorably sweet, so caring and had me in tears by the first quarter of the book. Definitely a New Book Boyfriend for me!

Bailey was just wonderful, such a fighter and very courageous. The sparks between these two were instantaneous! They both had things to work through, though.  Hudson is all business, all the time. He feels guilty for his twin leaving Cedar Ridge and never coming home. Bailey has her own troubles, including an ex-fiance that still cares desperately for her, just not as a lover, as a friend.

Their meet up was cute!!!
He pointed to a sign three feet away.


"I saw that," she said. "Hence my thinking position because trust me, I wasn't about to be stupid on top of stupid."

Hudson's mother, Carrie, is the one who hired Bailey to paint a mural for the ski resort the Kincaids run. She also has Alzheimers and has for a while. She hired Carrie over the net under false pretenses to paint a mural. This one made me cry.
"I get that. It's a memory that can't be erased with time."

"Or a brain that has a hard time locating all its files." Eyes suddenly suspiciously shiny, she knocked on the side of her own head. "Like mine."

Sigh. The relationship between Hudson and his mother was so sweet! As you can see the predominant word here is SWEET! I think the next one with Jacob is not going to be so sweet... he's a bit of a hard ass. (There is an excerpt in the back of My Kind of Wonderful)

Jill Shalvis knows how to draw you into a book and not let go. Funny, sweet, and slightly serious, My Kind of Wonderful is one seriously good romance!






Bailey Moore has an agenda: skiing in the Rockies, exploring castles in Europe, ballroom dancing in Argentina. Now that she has a second lease on life, she's determined not to miss a thing. What she doesn't realize is that item #1 comes with a six-foot-one ski god hot enough to melt a polar ice cap. She doesn't want to miss out on him either, but Hudson Kincaid isn't the type of guy to love and let go. And as gorgeous as Cedar Ridge is, she's not planning to stick around.

As head of ski patrol at his family's resort, Hud thinks he's seen it all. But never has he run into someone like Bailey. She might look delicate, but her attitude is all firecracker. And her infectious joy touches something deep within him that he's been missing far too long. Now he'll just have to convince Bailey to take a chance on her biggest adventure yet . . . something rare and all kinds of wonderful.
