Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Length (Est.): 95 pages
Jesse Oliver was a medic in Afghanistan, but back home in Pine Mountain he’s happy to switch gears as the Double Shot bar’s new sous chef. When his apartment floods and his old Army buddy offers the family’s dilapidated lake house as temporary quarters, Jesse thinks a little remodeling on the creaky duplex sounds like a fair return favor. That’s before he sets eyes on the gorgeous woman moving into the other side of the cabin—and discovers she’s his buddy’s kid sister, a.k.a totally off limits.
Kat McMarrin has fought hard for her space, and she’s not too interested in sharing it. Of course, her job as a physical therapist means she won’t see much of Jesse, even if he’s a few thin floorboards away—unless she seeks him out. And with his sculpted body and slow-burn gaze, she might be tempted. Maybe the fixer-upper projects she has planned for the cabin will keep her mind off him. Or maybe her instincts to strip the place down will get out of hand…

Jesse Oliver is the new sous chef at the Double Shot bar in Pine Mountain. Returning home from being a medic in Afghanistan he is happy with the change of pace. When his apartment floods an Army buddy offers the family lake house free of charge in place of some remolding that Jesse can do.
Kat McMarrin loves nothing more than her own space. When her apartment floods she decides to go to her family lake house to work on some home improvements until her apartment is ready. Discovering her brother has already said that Jesse can stay she must once again share her space. Good thing it has two living quarters.
Kat cannot seem to keep her eyes off of the sculpted body that is in front of her. All that Jesse knows is that his friend’s sister is totally off limits.
This is the first book in the Pine Mountain series that I have read. I really enjoyed reading the story of Jesse and Kat. The romance is lighthearted and really nice. The small town feel was great. Learning about each other while at a lake house doing improvements together will definitely spark a flame.
My Favorite Moment: I really enjoyed Kat visiting Jesse at the bar. I think boxed mac and cheese will not seem the same anymore.
