As the brains behind wedding site, Callie sees it all: from the ring to the dress, the smiles . . . to the tears. It's that last part that keeps her single and not looking. Getting left at the altar will do that to a girl. But when Callie returns to her old hometown, she finds that her sweet high school crush is sexier than ever. And he makes it hard to remember why she's sworn off love . . .

Tanner is a deep-sea diver with a wild, adrenaline-junkie past
and now his teenage son is back in his life. How can Tanner be a role model when he's still paying for his own mistakes? It's hard enough that gorgeous Callie has appeared in town like a beautiful dream, challenging his best-laid plans to keep his heart on lockdown. Though there's something about being around her again that makes him feel like he can be the man sheand his sondeserve. Little Lucky Harbor holds their past; can it hold a beautiful new future?



We all remember Tanner from the previous two books. (He's a partner in Lucky Harbor Charters - the boat charter business he shares with Sam and Cole)

And Callie - she just moved in next door to Becca and Olivia. But she's not really new in town. She grew up here. She's Lucille's granddaughter!!! And her parents sent her to check if Lucille is still able and sane enough to live on her own ☺

Callie left Lucky Harbor years ago when she was left at the alter by her fiancé Eric - who is now Lucky Harbor's only dentist.
Leaving her on her own wedding day was the worst thing anyone could ever do to Callie. Because she's always been in love with weddings - ever since she was a little girl. That's why she combined her nerdy IT skills with her love of weddings and is now running her own online wedding-planner business.
Planning dream weddings for other people. Not for her. Never again for her!!!

Tanner, as we all know, was working on the oil rig with Cole and Sam and Gil - Gil, who died in the fire that also left Tanner with a bad leg injury.
And Tanner has never really gotten over what happened. And he still has the stupid leg to remind him of the fire every single day.

And if that wasn't enough to keep him in a sour mood most of the time, his ex wife just left his 15-year-old son Troy to live in Lucky Harbor with his Dad. A Dad who doesn't really have any idea how to raise a kid. And a really difficult kid too. Karma is really having fun with Tanner at the moment - because he was just the same when he was his son's age!

But with the help of his buddies and lots of patience and love he does everything he can to stop his son from screwing up his life.

Callie & Tanner.
Callie has had a crush on Tanner forever. She was soo in love with the highschool bad boy. But she was just this nerdy kid back then - he never even noticed her.

Wrong. He does remember her.
And even better - he seems really interested in her now.
And grandma Lucille and her geriatric gang of Tumblr and Twitter addicts is trying her best to play matchmaker for the "Last Hot Single Guy for Two Hundred Miles". Who better to pair him with than her own grandchild? ☺ Oh, and btw. Lucille now has a youtube channel too ☺☺☺


 Nope . . . I'm not telling you ☺


Such a beautiful & funny story!

This being the last Lucky Harbor book ever, I was in a very sad mood when I read it.
But I loved it from the first seconds to the last words.
I know I said the last two books were my favorite Lucky Harbor books ever - but this one is right there with them!!!

Tanner is this sexy and sad ex Navy SEAL / ex oil-rig explosives expert and now he's about to really fall in love for the first time in his life! - With this adorable klutzy and sexy nerd - Callie.
They sooo belong together.
Both not believing in love and HEA and all that stuff - but how can they not believe it when it's right there in front of them??
They were sooo cute together - and so funny - their daily 'meetings' at the bakery! Adorable!

And the way Callie falls not only in love with Tanner but also with his son - and the poor boy - who finally starts to be happy again. Ugh - soo moving!

It was such an adorable and funny and sexy and moving Romance and grrrrr I just loved it!
Why does this series have to end :((((((

Can we at least turn the whole thing into a TV series???
I would sooo watch that every week - every day even!!!!

And Lucille?! I will miss her - but she now found the perfect girl for 12 hot guys - she deserves to retire now☺

"You don't know this about your dear old grandma, but I'm known as being quite the matchmaker. In the past five years alone, I've been responsible for . . . Let's see . . .  Jax, Ford, Sawyer, Ty, Matt, Josh, Luke, Jack, Ben, Sam, and Cole. All found their happily-ever-afters with a little help from moi - even if most of them have no idea I helped them."

Like all previous books in the series, but especially like the last 2, this 12th Lucky Harbor Romance had everything I need in my Romances:




ONE IN A MiLLiON was just PERFECT!!!
And if you haven't read any of those 12 Lucky Harbor Romances - shame on you!!!
GO. READ. THEM. !!!!!

I'm sure you heard those awful rumors by now - that ONE IN A MILLION is the last Lucky Harbor book ever!!! o.O

Yeah - that's unfortunately true :((( I wanted at least 6 Lucky Harbor books every year for the next 30 years - but....not gonna happen :((( #GoodByeLuckyHarbor
But - I'm sure whatever Jill comes up with next will be just as amazing!! ☺

PS ☺ There might be a tiny little Christmas Novella coming from Lucky Harbor on 2 December ☺☺☺
Chloe & Sawyer again!!!!! ♥

coming soon.
