Joey McMillian is man that everyone loves. Women fall at his feet everywhere he goes, and men want to be him. Working at the fire department in the small shore town where he grew up, staying close to the only constant in his life, his best friends, has been all Joey thought he wanted in life. While his friends have all found love and started families, Joey bounces from woman to woman, never opening himself up to the opportunity of loving someone and being truly loved in return.
Kat Pierce is a fiercely independent thirty something who knows Joey’s womanizing ways far too well. When she lands a teaching job and moves into her cousin’s house at the shore, she finds herself with Joey more than she would like. There’s always been an attraction between the two of them, but Kat knows better than to act on her feelings. Her heart has been broken before, and she knows Joey is a one way ticket to having it broken again.
Will Joey and Kat find the love they are looking for?
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This is the third and final book in the series. The first two books are Dust to Dust and Wished Away. All three books could be read as standalone I suppose but I feel you benefit more from reading them in order and they have all been 5 star reads for me.
Joey, Joey, Joey….what can I say, you were so much sweeter than I ever thought you could be. Ladies you will love him, he is thoughtful, hot, confident and a firefighter. Don’t think that just because he is sweet that he has lost any of his alphaness (not sure if that's a word?) because he hasn’t. I love male characters that are strong and confident but can still be sweet and loving and Joey was all those and more. Kat is literally the woman next door that Joey has known and been friends with for years, she doesn't take any crap off of him and has no trouble calling him on his BS. Both have had feelings for one another that they always thought it was best not to act on until Joey decides that Kat is the one he wants and just remember what Joey wants, Joey gets!
I fell head over heels for Joey and Kat’s love story. It was beautifully written and I wouldn't change one thing about it. I will say out of all the books in the series I felt this was the sweetest love story. Kat and Joey really did make the perfect couple.
This book has a little bit of everything in and really surprised me towards the end with a twist that I didn’t see coming. The twist will bring out your emotions and really tug at your heart because unfortunately it is something that we are seeing in the news way too much these days. It made my heart hurt a lot and my emotions were all over the place. I do have to commend the Author for writing about it, I know it couldn’t have been easy to tell that part of the story, however I think she did an amazing job at it.
This story was the perfect mixture of drama, love, heartbreak, sex, humor and friendship. I am really going to miss this whole group of friends. I can’t stress that enough but the Author really couldn’t have ended the series any better in my opinion, if it must end!
Thank you S.P. Cervantes for writing such a wonderful series full of love, laughter and friendship! I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know each character a little better throughout the series. Your writing has made me feel a personal connection to all of these characters and I will dearly miss them. I can't wait to see what you have in store for us in the future.
