Years ago it was far easier for Jack Hunter to keep his hands off his best friend’s little sister. Before they’d signed up and done a couple tours of duty, Pepper Wilson had been nothing more than an annoying tag-along brat. Only now that he’s back for good and working to make DreamMakers a success, Pepper’s home from college and determined to push his every button.
Jack Hunter had always seen Pepper Wilson as the annoying, combative little sister of his best friend, Parker Wilson, growing up, and even when he started to look at her as more than just his best friends little sister he pushed those thoughts to the side because of the complications that it could bring into his friendship with Parker, who isn’t only his best friend but brother in all ways except blood. But now that she is back in town for good and he’s had the opportunity to look past being the annoying little sister he never wanted, Jack decides it’s time to let go and see if there can be more between them.
It was fun to watch as Jack and Pepper’s story unfolded. Jack, despite being wholly alpha male, is also a pretty laid back, observant kind of guy and as he starts to really see and understand why Pepper acts and reacts in the way she does to her brother’s over protectiveness as well as how she views life he finds that she is so much more than he originally thought her to be. Pepper is a firecracker of a woman who has been trying since birth to get people to see that she can take care of herself. There were times where I thought she was being overly dramatic, but at the same time couldn’t fault her for it.
Being able to catch up with Parker, Lynn, Dean and the oh so unique Suz as well as meeting some new faces to the series helped move the story and series along and made for a very enjoyable read.
