ARC Review: Just One Taste by 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…

One thing I can say about the Pine Mountain series is that I am never disappointed. I love the setting and I adore the characters to pieces.

Kincaid delivers a sweet and romantic novella about a army medic who feels like he isn't good enough or doesn't officially have a place and a woman who is utterly unique who happens to be the little sister of a good friend.

When Jesse and Kat are living in the apartments they have nothing to do with each other but little head nods and looks. Now that they are sharing Kats and Gabe's cabin they are spending time together and getting the chance to get to know each other.

This two were written perfectly for one another. They happened to balance each other out so well and their chemistry is to die for. I love how Jesse tries to stay away because he thinks she deserves better but Kat is strong and wants Jesse no matter what.

Although this is a quick read you don't feel cheated on a story. Do I wish these two had a whole entire book? Absolutely! But the way it was written didn't cheat them of the happily ever after they both ended up finding. This is a great addition to the series.

This could be read as a standalone but I would suggest starting from the beginning of the series since in this story you meet some of the characters from previous books and how they all end up knowing each other. Not only will you fall in love with pine mountain but you will fall in love with the characters and they will keep you coming back for more.

Nick's book is next and lets just say I'm excited and waiting on the edge of my seat to see what Kincaid has in store for him!
