She’s always been off limits . . .

Noah Tager has always played by the rules and proudly wears the label ‘Local Hero.’ But before he leaves to become one of The Few, The Proud, The Marines, he wants to turn his fantasies into reality with the one woman who has always been off limits.

He’s always been a challenge…

When it comes to her less-than-stellar reputation, Josie Fairmore is ready and willing to cross over into nothing-left-to-lose territory, if it leads to an all-night ride with the man of her X-rated dreams. With her big brother leaving in the morning to ‘Be All He Can Be’ in the Army, Dominic will never find out about her fling with his best friend Noah.

But one wild ride together doesn’t change the fact that Noah’s leaving in the morning—and he’s taking Josie’s heart with him.

This is a short introduction to the world of Forever, Oregon, and the prequel to Noah and Josie's story. This sets the scene for their story in the first of the series, Serving Trouble.

Noah has been attracted to Josie, his best friend, Dominic's sister forever. Josie has been attracted to Noah too, but the attraction has never been acted upon because, you don't mess with your best friend's little sister.

I liked Noah. He's kind, honorable and hell bent on doing the right thing. He's also incredibly responsible for his age. What he does for his grandmother and how he does his best to take care of the family is very laudable.

As for Josie, she's smart as a whip and undeserving of the wild child label. She's very clearly misunderstood, though fortunately for her, Noah understands her well enough. She has plans to leave Forever and her reputation behind, and never return.

Both Noah and Josie have plans for the future which take them away from each other. Still, just before Noah leaves the next morning to boot camp and the Marines, and Josie leaves for college, they have one short night together.

If you want to find out more about Noah and Josie after this short prequel, read Serving Trouble to see them find their happy ending.
