Joe's childhood was about as far away from Lisa's happy and warm family home as it could get. The Army gave him a substitute family, but now that he's retired he doesn't know where to go or what to do. Invited to spend Christmas with the family of one of his former soldiers, he accepts, but once the special order classic car he's bought is ready, he plans to be on his way...to...well, somewhere. He's not quite sure yet.
When he sees Lisa, though, he's suddenly even less sure about his path. He's sure he's too old for her and not at all the kind of guy she deserves. But fate, Lisa, and her family have other plans.
Lisa and Joe were an adorable couple. I loved how he refused to let her keep on fading into the woodwork, and that he was able to help her to get rid of the ghosts of her last disastrous relationship. And for the record, I sincerely hope that Stella's able to convince at least one of them into adopting a dog ;)
Speaking of Lisa's almost-cousin Stella, there's a teaser for her book at the end (All I Need) that definitely grabbed my interest. A made up boyfriend who's suddenly your boss? I'm so there! The fact that we'll probably get to see more of Lisa and Joe (and find out how Lisa's mom is doing) will be a nice bonus too. Can't wait!
Though this is book 3 in the Silver Pines series, it works just fine as a standalone. (Actually, book 2 in the series takes place in the 1980s, so at this point only books 1 and 3 take place in the same decade, until book 4 comes out.)
4 stars / A-
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
The heroine and her Sergeant hero (her older brother's Army boss) each have self-sabotaging words and thoughts they keep on repeat, to themselves, and the reader knows those two are going to have to realize what they're doing and make the changes themselves. Hayes' handled the slut-shaming thread nicely, i.e. what starts out as words against us can often time go on repeat in our own heads, long after what should have been its expiry date.
But love and attraction are often the necessary motivators any one of us might need to make changes for the better, and Lisa and Sergeant Joe do believable jobs of turning those voice off in the nick of time. The other characters are drawn in with enough detail I'm now curious to read the other books in her Silver Pines series.
