A little home improvement can go a long way…
Jesse Oliver was a medic in Afghanistan, but back home in Pine Mountain he’s happy to switch gears as the Double Shot bar’s new sous chef. When his apartment floods and his old Army buddy offers the family’s dilapidated lake house as temporary quarters, Jesse thinks a little remodeling on the creaky duplex sounds like a fair return favor. That’s before he sets eyes on the gorgeous woman moving into the other side of the cabin—and discovers she’s his buddy’s kid sister, a.k.a totally off limits.
Kat McMarrin has fought hard for her space, and she’s not too interested in sharing it.

At first it was hard to get a read on any character, especially Jesse, with the way the story was written. I kept moving on to other novels but was still interested enough to come back. It was more than halfway through that I really thought Jesse and Kat had a true connection. The encounter where Jesse works was one of my favorite scenes. Their conversation flowed and seemed effortless. This is what I was looking for since the beginning which would have been a sure way to hook me. I did enjoy the story line and the challenges that Jesse and Kat faced. However I thought that the resolution to the main conflict was very brief, and there was no real struggle towards the end.
I give Just One Taste 3 out of 5 stars.
