If you’ve read the other two books in this trilogy (and if you haven’t, you need to), Zane, and Canyon, you would have seen this relationship coming. Jovonnie Jones (JoJo) is the perfect companion for Stern Westmoreland: she hunts, does martial arts, and owns her own auto repair shop. Best friends since high school, the two often enjoy hunting trips together at Stern’s cabin in the mountains. But romance has never been part of the equation. Until one day, out of the blue on one of their mini-vacations JoJo asks Stern his advice on how to make a man interested in her. Uncomfortable with the query and not really sure why, he begrudgingly agrees to help her transform herself to attract a man she’s interested in, a new customer of hers. That’s what best friends do, right? He is completely unaware that the man she is really targeting is him.
Some of the best romance books revolve around friends becoming lovers. Seeing Stern slowly come to terms with his feelings while seeing JoJo pull out all the stops for another man was entertaining. Stern is the last in this trilogy and the 26th Westmoreland book overall with more stories coming I’m sure.
