    Book 1

    I liked the novel. Noah and Josie are a really great couple and it was a joy reading about them 5 years later from the prequel. There was a really great and heartwarming plot line in the girl who came back to her hometown and rekindles a spark with her love, it had excitement and mystery and a shocker of a twist, steamy romance, and amazing secondary characters that I really want to make me read their stories. I am happy with this HEA and hope they continue through the next books so I can see how they are doing.

    You have my heart

    This is book # 1 in the Second Shot series. (There is a prequel so this is technically book # 2) They should be read in order. This will give the reader the background and understanding to make the books more enjoyable. Noah and Josie go way back. He is her brother's best friend. This makes her unreachable and a relationship they might have taboo. Her brother does not want her to have feelings for him. Too late. Josie has been in love with Noah almost from the beginning. They got one special night together before he went away to boot camp. Now, years later, it is awkward between them. Josie needs a job, though, and she is sticking to her guns. Such a sweet and powerful story! A real page turner. I was absorbing each page and could not wait to finish. The character development is right on and the pace is just quick enough to make you second guess. ***This ARC copy was given in exchange for an honest review.

    Serving Trouble

    Five years she's handled everything herself. Now Josie is back home and she didn't want to ask for help, not planning to tell anyone what she'd been through. She owes money and all she'd ask is for a job from the man she tried but couldn't forget. Noah. He didn't want to have her close. Didn't want to remember how they'd parted. But he'd made a promise to help if ever she needed it and she was calling him on it. A job. Back from a tour in Afghanistan, disillusioned with the military, he's running his dad's bar and making a success of it. But along with his feelings a close friend and maybe Josie is in trouble. He doesn't feel like a hero. Can he protect them? And if he can't keep away from her, what will her big brother and his best friend do? They are no longer the kids they were. Noah doesn't know if that makes easier or harder to deal. Who is he kidding, it's never been easy and the years didn't help his wanting her. If only he knew what had happened, why did she need money? Is he really the Jerk she thinks he is, and he agrees. It doesn't matter what he thinks as long as she is safe. And Josie doesn't intend to give her heart away again. Still, maybe it has always been Noah's and she had no choice. Once again Ms Stone has taken a problem, in this case, uniquely female returning from war. She handles it without making it the entire story, while still bringing the reality to us at home. Will she bring us more of Caroline's story in a later book? I for one hope so. Josh a friend, himself recovering from a major injury, civilian related, shows a uncanny understanding and attitude toward her. Thank you for sharing this real life situation. Enjoy Serving Trouble, romance, pain, strength and friendship as well as enlightening the reader, this is a keeper and a 5 star recommend from me. I was provided and ARC for an honest review.

    I felt so bad for Josie

    4.5 Stars This is book one in the Second Shot series and it features Noah Tager and Josie Fairmore. WHAT A LOVE STORY! Poor Josie. I was so sad for her loss. She didn't deserve the title given to her by the whole town. I loved Noah but at the same time I was irritated with him through a lot of the story. I realize he was suffering in his own way but he didn't man-up until he really had no choice. Regardless of anything I didn't like, this was a fantastic story line with amazing characters. I can't wait to read more of this series.

    A spinoff series

    The story takes off emotionally, with lust, angst, and sorrow painted on every page from the start. High emotions are the trademark of the tale, as Noah and Josie face each other again, after five years. Those years seemed to have been rough for both of them, they carry so much pain inside of them, just trying to survive. Josie, heartbroken, up to her neck in debt, is looking for a safe haven, a place where she can heal, and pay off her debt. Noah, marine, now at home running his father's bar, taking care of everyone, trying to convince the town he is a jerk. But the hero, the good guy, savior complex behavior is with every single thing he does. The 'I'm not a hero, I'm a jerk' sentence gets a lot of use, as he is proving the opposite every single time. The cast of characters have chemistry, and they fit well together, they all help to mold the story, providing insights to Noah and Josie, and their past. The romance between them sizzling hot, the connection is believable, and the heat is high. This is a spinoff from a previous series, and you might get the feeling, at first, that you walked into a movie in the middle of the flick. But things fast fall into the place, and the story quickly flows off the pages. There's danger, and fear, with the AWOL marine Caroline, her pain is more than I can imagine, and hearing about her experience, and the events in the military were frighteningly real. Deep emotions, friends who always have your back, little bit of danger, a lot of past pain mixed with kittens, barns, beer, and pies ~ Four Spoons
