After a year spent living in hiding—with no end in sight—Caroline Andrews wants to reclaim her life. But the lingering trauma from her days serving with the marines leaves her afraid to trust the tempting logger who delivers friendship and the promise of something more.
Following an accident that nearly robbed him of his hopes for the future, Josh Summers believes life has given him a second chance. He wants to settle down with the woman who stole his attention and his heart. And he’s willing to wait until she’s ready to be more than “just friends.” When fear of discovery leaves Caroline pretending to be his date, Josh tempts her to try the real thing—a relationship built on trust, not lies.
But then the past threatens and Caroline must risk everything—including her freedom—to bury her demons before she can take a chance on happy-ever-after.

Clever, clever man!!!
This is book 3 in the Second Shot series and it features Josh Summers and Caroline Andrews. Josh has to be the sweetest, most patient man I've ever known and is a gorgeous ginger! Caroline's been through a lot and it's not over yet, so he's giving her time. His way of doing that is baking her pies and taking them to her so they can spend time together while they eat pie. Clever man!
Fantastic story line with amazing, well developed characters. I am definitely looking forward to more books in this series.
Josh is one of my favorite book boyfriends!
really like this series and had high expectations for Josh and Caroline's story. Their story really starts in Serving Trouble and continues in Stirring Attraction, the first and second books of the series. I highly recommend that you read them prior to this. Josh and Caroline have become friends over the the last year and a half while sharing pies and brownies that Josh bakes her. He understands she doesn't trust easily and that he needs to take it slow with her, but it is getting harder to be just friends. Caroline wants to move forward with Josh, but being AWOL makes it hard for her to think of having a future. But after they share a kiss, Caroline thinks she's ready to start moving forward. Just when thing start looking up for them, Caroline decides that in order to truly move forward, she must deal with her past and turns herself in. I already loved Josh for being so patient with her, but the way he goes to battle for her to be set free made him one of my favorite book boyfriends. While I loved finally seeing them get together, I was a little disappointed at how short the book was. I loved the side story with Ryan and Helena, can't wait to see how that develops.
I received an ARC via Edelweiss for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.
