Say No to Joe By Lori FosterActual Rating 3 starsThe good The hero Joe was seemingly pretty loyal to Luna the heroine once they got together The kids were cute if a little cardboard ish I enjoyed the brief glimpses of Alyx Joe s sisterThe bad I was confused whether or not Joe had been celibate after meeting Luna He claimed he didn t want any other women but he d clearly gone out on at least one date with Amelia and there were two ladies in his house when Luna showed up which STILL confuses me Casual sexism Lots of comments about real men and some weirdly snide mentions of Luna being a feminist early on WTF Yet another manwhore hero Yawn OW bashing For some reason Joe repeatedly says the other women he dated were vain and shallow and that was why he never wanted to settle down with them Except he straight up acknowledges earlier in the book that he doesn t want marriage or kids and other women have tried and failed to get him to settle down I don t see why Foster can t just have him admit that he wasn t ready at that point for marriage but is now Why does it have to be the other women s fault Safety Statsview spoilerAges Joe is 36 no age mentioned for LunaCheating NoneOMOW Some mention of Joe s previous manwhoring ways An ex is still obsessed with him and tries to get her revenge on himSeparation NoneTriggers NoneHEA Yes married by the end hide spoiler I see this is lending enabled for Kindle Would anyone be willing to lend it to meThanks for the lend Michelle hugs Say No To Joe was a humorous romance the characters were well fleshed out and I laughed so hard I snorted while I waited for my bus Which led to someone saying bless ou to me D 5 I Wouldn t Say No To Joe Stars One of my favorites now is now available in audio Joe Winston is a ex Cop and present day Bounty Hunter and Bodyguard Joe lover of all women is infatuated with free spirited Luna The Moon Goddess who works for his cousin Zane s wife we first meet Joe in Wild and while it s not necessary to read Wild first I highly recommend itLuna finds herself needing Joe s help she s been named as guardian of her deceased cousins two children Willow and Austin Unfortunately there is trouble in the kids hometown and it looks as though someone is intentionally causing trouble for these poor orphaned children There are town secrets and it s up to Joe to keep Luna and the children safe from a unknown threat Joe wants Lunabut is he ready for family life and commitments And how long can Luna say no to Joe 455Loved this book It was exactly what I needed light and adorable with a dash of emotional romance I loved the relationship that Joe and Luna created with the children and the added mystery made this book addictive I loved that Luna wasn t the usual dainty female She was uniue and tough and didn t take shit from anybody I had a distinct dislike for Joe throughout the beginning of the book he was sexist and frustrating
but as the story progressed and the children were introduced his character began to improve and mellow The side as the story progressed and the children were introduced his character began
improve and mellow side were amazing I loved the added dimension they created There was an air of almost psychic powers with Jamie knowing when and why people were arriving and the kick ass Alyx was amazing my only complaint was that we didn t see of her I m hoping Lori will put out a novel based on her and the sheriff sighsLori Foster knows how to write a good romance story I haven t read a book of hers that I haven t fallen in love with What a wonderfully perfect read Joe Winston has a routine with women he exists they swoon roll credits With his smouldering .To Improve And Mellow

And I Absolutely Loved It The Beginning Had Me FooledI absolutely loved it The beginning had me fooled m not a huge fan of the ultimate player who thinks marriage is worse than jail The beginning was focused on Joe s playboy ways a bit too much but once Luna asked for Joe s help I was pleasantly surprised to see how much Joe was gone for Luna The story just got better and better from thereLuna is being asked to take over guardianship of her 14 and 9 ear old cousins that she didn t even know about Since their single mom passed away they ve been passed from one relative to another Luna has been informed there is some issues with the children and the townsfolk so she asks Joe to come with her temporarily to help get things settled Joe is a former policeman turned bounty hunter turned bodyguard If anyone can deal with any trouble to come along it s JoeI can t really say enough how much I loved this story I love small town settings because ou get a lot of side characters that play a small but noticeable part in the story Add in kids who just need someone to love them and I was a goner Joe a former playboy becoming a protector and all domesticated was just icing on the cake This author had me loving these people in the story so much that I had to go see if any of them have their own book I m so excited to see she does especially Jamie Creed I m not sure if his book can hold up to the hype of his character in this book but I m not wasting time to go find out. S Secretly Luna Clark may lust after Joe but she's made it clear that she's too smart for him. .
