FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Out of the Blue by Jill Shalvis- Feature and Review

The right betand the wrong bed! Don't miss this fun and sexy classic romance from New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis!
For Hannah Novak, running a bed-and-breakfast with her two best friends was adventure enough. But they didn't feel that way. They wanted to devote the summer to serious man hunting—loser cleans toilets! Fine for them, but Hannah was, uh, inexperienced. How could she seduce anyone?
Then out of the blue came Zach Thomas, looking for a bedand breakfast. Hannah had always thought the rugged cop was the sexiest man alive, and, bet or no bet, she wanted him. So she checked him in—to her own room—with every intention of checking him out!
A sexy contemporary romance.


Out of the BlueOut of the Blue by Jill Shalvis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Out of the Blue is a 2016 Harlequin Special Release publication.

I found this book while browsing through my Overdrive library account, but the title didn’t sound familiar to me. So, I checked it out thinking it was a new release, only to discover the book is actually a reissue of a Harlequin Temptation novel, published in 2000, and originally titled “The Wrong Bed”.

However, I have no problem reading older titles, and truth be told, I love seeing these older titles re-released in digital format. So, despite the book’s age, this story has no problem standing the test of time. In fact, if I hadn’t known the book was a reissue in advance, I never would have guessed the book was nearly sixteen years old.

Hannah has been so focused on her business, she wakes up one day and realizes she has had no love life at all, and horror of all horrors, is still a virgin. Hannah is quite ready to remedy that situation, and as fate would have it, Zach, her best friend’s brother, just happens to be coming to stay at their B&B for a week, while recovering from a bullet wound he received in the line of duty.

Hannah, decides right then that Zach is the perfect man for the job, and sets out to seduce him. Hilarity erupts as Zach has no idea what Hannah is trying to accomplish and her efforts to sway him fail miserably.

This story is short, humorous, and sexy, with only a slight bit of drama and angst. Mostly, this is a just a nice escapist read, a little bit predictable, but I liked all the characters and thought it was an entertaining novel.




New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis lives in a small town in the Sierras with her family and far too many assorted quirky characters. Any resemblance to the quirky characters in her books is, um, mostly coincidental. 

Look for Jill's latest, LOST AND FOUND SISTERS on shelves and e-readers now, and get all her bestselling, award-winning books wherever romances are sold.
