review || RUNNING WILD { blog tour } by Sara Jane Stone

Avon | February 2, 2016 | Contemporary Romance
Second Shot, book 0.5


She’s always been off limits ...

Noah Tager has always played by the rules and proudly wears the label ‘Local Hero.’ But before he leaves to become one of The Few, The Proud, The Marines, he wants to turn his fantasies into reality with the one woman who has always been off limits.

He’s always been a challenge…

When it comes to her less-than-stellar reputation, Josie Fairmore is ready and willing to cross over into nothing-left-to-lose territory, if it leads to an all-night ride with the man of her X-rated dreams. With her big brother leaving in the morning to ‘Be All He Can Be’ in the Army, Dominic will never find out about her fling with his best friend Noah.

But one wild ride together doesn’t change the fact that Noah’s leaving in the morning—and he’s taking Josie’s heart with him.

{ review } .

I love books that prelude a series -- just like I love prequels to stories, such as what Sweet Girl is for Garrison's Creed. While I was well aware this was a novella, I wasn't quite prepared for the face that it is indeed the prelude for a much larger picture -- Serving Trouble, which will pick up five years after the end of this one.

He had banished the words "Dominic's sister is freaking hot" from his vocabulary not long after Josie started high school...

Noah has wanted Josie for a long time -- but Josie's wanted him just as long. With Dominic out of the picture, it's the perfect time to try something... right? One night between the town's hero and the town's wild child... One night that can only be one night...

And a single person that links them both, that has them still questioning what they do at every turn.

This was a cute introduction to not only the series, but to this couple. I can't wait to see them again when they've both grown up a little -- I'm curious to see how Noah returns, to be honest, and to see how their chemistry will have grown.
