Single father Kevin O’Donnell would do anything to give his daughter Holly a stable life—including leave the Air Force and take a job working at Knight and Day Flight Tours in charming Jupiter Point, California. After his wild daredevil past, he’s sworn off relationships until Holly turns eighteen. Just three more years. No problem; he’s got this under control. Until a chance encounter with a smart, sassy bombshell—who just happens to be his new boss’s sister.
Since her father’s unsolved murder, Cassie Knight has spent over a decade on the road with her mother, memories chasing the fragile woman from town to town…or so Cassie thought. Only after returning to Jupiter Point does she learn something—or someone—all too real triggered their life on the run. Now, with her brother closing in on their father’s killer, Cassie’s free to pursue her own happiness for the first time. Enter smart, sexy, funny Kevin O’Donnell.
Of course they’ll have to keep it light. There’s a big off-limits sign on Kevin’s heart, and Cassie’s ready to hit the road the minute her father’s killer is found. She can do light—no problem. But she didn’t count on their sizzling chemistry…Holly’s suddenly odd behavior…and a killer who’s more cunning than the Knight family ever suspected. Too hot to handle? There’s only one way to find out.
WOW!! I don’t know how she does it, but every book, including Too Hot to Handle, Jennifer Bernard writes in her Jupiter Point series is better than the last. This is an amazing story about two people who were only looking for a fling, nothing serious, but after spending time together they find that they both have fallen in love with the other. Cassie Knight is home in Jupiter Point and her brothers are hoping she and their mother will stay for a while. Ben and Tobias have given her space in one of their hangers to set up her car repair shop. She is sharing space with new hire Kevin O’Donnell; mechanic, single dad, and Air Force buddy of Ben. I loved these two. They were both sensitive and in tune to the other, yet major jokesters, pulling practical jokes on the other. The scene with the chicken is hysterical. Throughout their “romance” Cassie’s brother Will is searching for the person responsible for killing their father and stalking their mother. It was scary the way the killer went after the Knight siblings but I was so glad to see how Ms. Bernard handled the situation of the Knights finally getting their man.
I truly loved reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. Ms. Bernard wrote an amazing sexy, steamy, and funny story which drew me in and did not let me go until I turned the last page. This is not only the eighth book in the Jupiter Point series but also the fourth book in her Knight Brothers series, each book being a stand alone. I highly recommend this book to other readers and can’t wait to read her next book.
