I love Lori Foster’s novels and I’ve heard so much about her novels about the Winston men but never had the chance to read their books. So when Lori came to me about reviewing her December Berkley Anthology release of Double the Pleasure which features an all new Winston novella I knew I had to get the books that started it all. Wildly Winston is a four-in-one novel with the first 4 books about the original 4 Winston brothers and now I’m reviewing the book Say No to Joe? which comes after Wild. After reading all four Winston brother’s love stories and have a peek into their cousin Joe Winston’s life I have to say I was excited about reading this book. Joe Winston is a dangerous man who loves to live dangerously especially since his past and current job consisted of being a bodyguard, private investigator and a bounty hunter.
But in Zane’s book Wild he seemed to have found a woman who could match him in Tamera’s friend and employee Luna Clark. At the end of Wild I knew that Luna and Joe would have their own story because I read the sexual tension between them and I was excited about this book. When I was finished reading it I knew I was right in picking up with book because it had everything I like in a novel. There were two wonderful kids that made the story fun and exciting to read especially mixed with all the suspense and sexual tension between Luna and Joe. It was great to read about another Winston fall head-over-heels in love with a strong woman who could put up with his macho good looks and his heavy attitude. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
SAY NO TO JOE? $ 6.99 (Book 2)(416 Pages)
IRRESISTIBLE FORCE—MEET IMMOVABLE OBJECT
Joe Winston has a routine with women: he exists; they swoon; roll credits. With his smoldering looks, macho style, and irrepressible charm, Joe can have any woman—except the one he really wants. Secretly, Luna Clark may lust after Joe, but she’s made it clear that she’s too smart to fall for him. He can just keep holding his breath, thank you very much. But now, Luna’s inherited two kids who need more than she alone can give in a small town that seems hell-bent on driving them away. She needs someone to help out…someone who can’t be intimidated…someone just like Joe. Becoming an instant family wasn’t exactly what Joe had in mind, but hey, it’s a start, and you can’t blame a guy for trying every angle.
After all, where there’s a Joe, there’s a way…straight into a woman’s heart.
