Sometimes begging works…

This story is proof that authors are sweet, generous and kind…well this author is. Jill Shalvis has listened to her fans and our wish is her command. With a bibbidi-bobbidi-boo (and a few hours in the hot seat thinking and writing, thinking and writing) we have Tilly and Dylan’s love story come to life in…dah…dah…dah…The Good Luck Sister.
I really enjoyed this little treat. Sure, I would have loved it to be longer but I was still satisfied with this sweet love story that took me through the highs and lows of their second chance at love. I don’t always believe in second chances at love. It’s hard to forgive heartbreak and hard to forget the pain. BUT…I think it’s a little different when the first time was in high school. Not, that I think high school romances are anything to sneeze at, it’s just that there’s still so much time for people to grow and mature. Mistakes are a little easier to forgive when they’re made by hormonal and inexperienced teenagers. Hopefully with time they learn and make better decisions about life and love.
So, Dylan’s runner into the army, I could forgive, especially considering he thought he was doing the right thing – AND – he didn’t have a good family support system in place to guide him. Yes, he hurt Tilly but it was easy to see that he never really moved on from her. By the end, I couldn’t help but admire Dylan for the man he became.
Tilly is still the quirky girl I came to love in Lost and Found Sisters. She’s obviously matured but I think in some ways, she’s still the vulnerable girl who thinks everyone will leave her. It takes her mistakenly making a quick judgement to realise that she’s always thinking the worst. Tilly starts to realise that the successes she’s always wanted are achievable, she just has to believe in herself.
I’m not normally a fan of time-jumping in my reads. In The Good Luck Sister it was a good reminder of stuff that previously happened while also helping us realise how young and immature they were. This time around they’re ready for all the feelings and have no doubts that the chemistry and connection they have is real.
A great chance to catch up with Quinn and Mick too. You could see that Quinn and Tilly's relationship has strengthened but you also see that Quinn forms a strong link to Dylan too. Mick is still AWESOME!!
If you’re a Jill Shalvis fan and enjoyed her first foray into Women’s Fiction with the Wildstone series, you will definitely enjoy The Good Luck Sister.
