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. . . .

I don't know if there is anything better than the first book in a new series, especially from such a steadfast author as Shalvis. Sweet Little Lies introduces us to the gang of Heartbreaker Bay in San Francisco, focusing on Finn and Lexi just after she moves to the neighborhood.
When I pick up a book by Ms. Shalvis, I expect certain things. I expect fun characters who have some emotional baggage, a great supporting cast, a little sexy time, and lots of humor. Sweet Little Lies definitely delivers in all aspects. Finn is adorably Alpha and has a fantastic group of friends. Lexi and her secret move in and instant sparks lead to all kinds of fun (and some genuinely sweet) moments.
The emotional vibe if this book was a smidge darker than some of Shalvis' previous series, but I appreciated the difference. I am definitely looking forward to seeing where she takes this series.
