In the third installment in Sara Jane Stone’s dazzling Second Shot series, a
beautiful but broken woman must decide if true love is worth risking everything…including
her freedom.
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
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.

There are always secondary characters that steal your heart. They make you fall in love before it's even their story. I have loved Josh since I first met him.

Josh is sweet, sexy, and has an awesome sense of humor. He is a big man...as a blogger he has to be, but he is a gentle giant. He bakes pies as relaxation. He may not be everyone's definition of stud (some people are anti-gingers) but he is everyone reader's dream.

Patience of a saint, kind, and protective are just a few characteristics of the man Caroline has taken to eating pie with. He is trustworthy, though it took her awhile. After everything she's been through, Caroline had sworn off of men...looking at them, being near them,and no way in he'll she'd ever touch one again. But Josh has managed too get past most of the walls Caroline has set up.

Will he break through and be able to hold her heart?

There are two ways to deal with anything...run away or confront. Caroline has been running from Josh...
She's been running from her attacker...
She's been running from the Marines...
But worse than those, she's been running from herself.

Confrontation is scary. But is it worth it?

I will fan girl squeal with the rest of them that I finally got to read Josh's story. Yeah, the others in the series are hot, chunky and alpha to the core- but Josh has always rendered me a sighing, aww-ing puddle. I love his story and you will too.

It isn't so easy. It's not as steamy. It's got plenty of humor to cover inadequacy. But it feels more heartfelt than the others and I loved it.

I do however, look forward to Helena.....and Ryan's (?) stories. If they aren't the same story, that is.
