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.
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.
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. . . .
Sweet Little Lies is the first in a new series taking place in San Francisco. Pru is the latest tenant in Finn's building and has become a regular in his pub, For Finn, work is his life and there is no room for fun. Until he meets Pru. As the two grow closer, a secret that Pru has may tear them apart.
I thought this one was really cute. There were a lot of laugh out loud moments. That is one thing about this author's writing that I liked. She has a talent for witty banter among her characters. She also knows how to write a love scene! Pru and Finn were smoking together! The secondary characters were great and I look forward to their stories. Another cute addition to the book was the #hashtag titles that set the tone for each chapter. I thought they were a nice touch!
The only thing that I wasn't a fan of was Pru's secret. I guess I didn't really understand why she continued to feel guilty especially when she had nothing to do with it. But, that is on me. In the end I was happy for their HEA.
