Virtual Tour! Mixing Temptations By Sara Jane Stone

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 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.

The author has said that this was a tough one to write, it is in the acknowledgements. And that she never planned that Caroline would get a story.

I can see why. This was not an easy story or an easy road to the expected, and required for the genre, happily ever after. Both Josh and Caroline had a lot to work through. A lot to get past in order to move forward, and not everything were issues she could handle on her own, involving no one else. Josh was in a similar place with the accident, as he was not totally able to handle his issues without the assistance of others. That they were both able to understand, even a little, where the other was coming from helped me be willing to believe that they would each be willing to get involved.

Sara Jane Stone is an author I enjoy because she tells real stories, because she is not afraid to tell a story about a hero, or a heroine, who is a little less than perfect. I knew this would be good, knowing how much care and concern she put into telling the story.

It is tough to review this without giving it away...and the way it is handled, the way they get to their HEA is enjoyable and a heck of a good read.

I recommend this book.
