Rating: 4 Stars
Description: Pilot for hire Zoe Stone is happy to call Sunshine, Idaho, her home base. But her quiet life is thrown for a loop when her brother's friend Parker comes to stay with her for a week. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife special agent is a handsome flirt with a gift for getting under her skin. And the situation only escalates when Parker hires her to fly him around the area while he collects evidence on a suspected smuggler.
Now she has to live and work with the guy. But when they're in the air, she sees another side of him. He's driven, focused, and sharp. And while he enjoys giving her commentary on her blind dates, she quickly realizes with a shock that it's Parker who gets her engines going. (from Goodreads)
Why I Picked This Book: I can never pass up a Jill Shalvis book and I loved Zoe in the previous book in this series and couldn't wait to see her in her own story.
My Impression: Oh how I love a Jill Shalvis book! The characters are fantastic, the chemistry is insane, and there's humor that keeps it light even though there are some pretty serious topics addressed. This one didn't disappoint and there's kittens! And Oreo! I've always loved Bernese Mountain dogs because they're so pretty but Oreo is just awesome. There was so much I loved about the book. Obviously the kittens and Oreo but Parker and Zoe just in general. I loved how he fixed things in the middle of the night and then pretended he didn't. I loved his interactions with his sister and I loved Zoe's dealings with her sister. It took me a little while to love them as a couple though I pretty much immediately loved them as individuals. They bicker a lot which works for them but took me personally a little bit to get used to.
During the last half the book heated up to blazing and it seemed like every page was a spicy scene and that got a little too much for me so I ended up flipping a bit. I would've loved to see them work together a little more because they made such a great team. The ending more than made up for any flaws and now I seriously want a kitten!
Would I Read More of this Series/Author?: Of course! I want Kel's book soon!
Would I Recommend this Book?: Yes, though I think it'd be better to start with the previous book - Still the One which is about Zoe's younger sister Darcy.
