Jessie Foster had always been the responsible one, staying in town to help her mom run the family bar, when her two older sisters left town to pursue their own dreams. She felt betrayed by them both (one of them very personally) and she hadn't spoken to them for years. But suddenly, her old boyfriend (who broker her heart) returned, there are three Stone brothers in town who had just opened a snowmobile rental and repair shop, and her sisters (she hated) are coming back. Jessie, trying to avoid her ex, approached Cade Stone, one of the three Stone brothers, to help her by pretending to be her boyfriend... He refused (!) but later decided he was being a douchebag... But Jessie was too mad to care. Jessie was having problems at home, as she found out how had her sisters fared... not that well, when another family secret was forced out... and one of her sisters has a stalker! Cade was all wrong for Jessie, but that wouldn't stop Cade from going after Jessie... And to help protect her family...
This book just has TOO MANY characters. While Jessie and Cade are primary, the sisters, ex, other suitors, and other minor characters just made a total hash of things. The family drama and the re-examination of Jessie's feelings (much of which are just... grudges) proved to be interesting character growth. It balances out to a mediocre score.
I also don't care much for closed door sex scenes (I mention this only for readers like me who want a little more spice), but that didn't deter me, either. The problem was I really didn't like the heroine, Jessie. She was too brash, too in-your-face, and extremely immature. I'm not sure why Cade would like her at all. The side plot of her sister's stalker was too distracting, as was the bar scene with her friend April (also very immature). Character development is very important to me. I want to like the main characters, but I didn't feel Jessie had many redeeming qualities, especially when she was yelling at her sisters and mother all the time. I also had a hard time swallowing some of the touristy references. I live in one of these small towns that deals with snowmobilers and skiers all the time, and this story wasn't quite realistic (it's fiction, yadda, yadda... still needs to be realistic). To be fair, I loved the scene where Cade hired a horse-drawn sleigh for a date with Jessie.
That being said, this wasn't the worst book I've ever read, and if this was the author's debut novel, she has potential as a writer. I like the concept of the three sisters coming together after years spent in angry silence because of a family crisis. The story just needs a little more depth and a lot more showing vs. telling. I plan on reading the next one in this series because I really liked Jessie's sister, Wynn, and since that's the next book, I'm willing to give the author another chance.
