JUST ONE TASTE                                   KIMBERLY KINCAID

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. Of course, her job as a physical therapist means she won’t see much of Jesse, even if he’s a few thin floorboards away—unless she seeks him out. And with his sculpted body and slow-burn gaze, she might be tempted. Maybe the fixer-upper projects she has planned for the cabin will keep her mind off him. Or maybe her instincts to strip the place down will get out of hand…

This a good story about two people who find each other through a crisis. While out for a run Kat McMarrin apartment building gets flooded by broken pipes. When she gets back though upset she is thinking about an elderly couple and if they got out. She finds out that one of her neighbors help them though she really does not know the man he is quiet but the couple says he was nice. The man Jesse Oliver is Sous chef now after serving as a medic in Afghanistan. He gets a hold of a friend of his who says he has a place that he can stay at he just needs to help with some of the cleanup. He agrees. After the agreement Kat shows up and he realizes that Kat is his buddy’s sister. After a few awkward moments they work things and they both stay. They work out a scheduled but during one of the cleaning sessions it gets a little too close for him. He does not want to make it appear that he is taking advantage of the situation and it takes Kat a little to get him to understand that she can speak for herself. Once they are in the house for a while and find things out about each other he must somehow overcome his fears and she is there and she knows it is going to take time because of his past but she is attracted to him by his strength of making it when people said he should not have and how he does not have any family except for friends he has made and have stayed by him. He gives her what she needs also in remembering the things from her childhood that made her happy and one was a garden. When he plants one she is taken by his kindness. This is a very good story. I got this book from net galley.  I give this 4 stars.
