I just finsihed this book last night and OMG!
I loved this book from start to finish. It was so much more than I expected and I could not put it down. For me there was the perfect amount of sexual scenes as I like my books to be very hot. I love how guarded Jet is and how Candy seems to be just what was needed to start helping him. And the relationship between Joel and Jet.... I love how they are best buds and you can clearly see how Joel cares for Jet.
Joel was the safest place Jet knows of and the only place he ever feels safe. He has a dark secret he has never told anyone and its the reason behind all his nightmares. He knows his relationship with Joel will never be what he truly desires but he will take the friendship and feeling of safety as long as Joel wants to be there.
Jet doesnt know that Joel is so conflicted with himself over thoughts he often has and we get to see his struggle and how he finally ends up working through it. Candy is the perfect thing to bring them all together and begin to help them both with their issues if the boys would would only open up bit more. However she has a secret shes been keeping from them and she runs out a couple times. When tragedy strikes can they work past all of their issues and finally be one?
This book has everything from angst to humor to off the charts chemistry. So why the four stars? I LOVED this book. I did not care for the ending. Don't get me wrong it was a good scene in the book. However I felt there was some little things that I felt needed a bit more closure for me. The possibilities for more stories with these three are endless and I hope we see more of them. This was the first book by Jo Raven I have ever read and I would definitely recommend reading it!! I will be reading more of her stuff for sure!

I don't want to touch it.
I really, really don't.
He's egotistical, crass, and my patient's owner--which makes him totally off limits.
Yep, that's right. He owns the wiener I'm currently working on.
A wiener dog--get your dirty mind out of the gutter.
I've also worked on his Spoodle, his Cocker-shitzu, and a Cheagle--don't ask. (And no, it's not a sexual position).
It doesn't help that he also represents most of my joint-owned veterinary practice's small clientele. We'd only just opened the doors a few months ago, and in he strode with a yelping Taco Terrier. One haughty look at our sparkling new facilities, he'd demanded royal treatment, even though I was currently finger deep up a squalling tom cat.
Ever since then, he expects me to serve him.
Any time. All the time.
Him and his revolving zoo of dogs.
One of these days, I'm going to swat him for being such a pompous ass but I can't deny the way he handles his charges makes me want to see past the 'do as I say and don't ask questions' barking exterior.
But then last week...he caught me staring at his um, cough, package.
His bossy commands switched to a cocky smirk.
He gave me permission to do something I promised myself I would never ever do.
I can touch it.
If I want...
I jumped, hugging the dog tighter. “What? What happened?”
He bit his lip, doing his best not to smile. “You space-cadeted on me again.” He chuckled. “You were looking at my mouth. You weren’t thinking of doing bad things to me again, were you? Because if you were…I can totally help with that.”
It would be so easy to nod and let whatever magic between us ignite. But we were at my work. I was supposed to be a mature, composed female.
Be that female!
My cheeks heated as I dropped my gaze to the Chinese Crested in my arms. “I wasn’t thinking bad things. Not in a bajillion years.”
“Bajillion, huh?” He raised an eyebrow. “Never heard of that amount of time.” He came closer, bringing sex and sparks and seduction. “Can I perhaps trade your bajillion and put my own time stamp on it?”
I froze as his hand cupped my cheek.
My face leaned into him.
“I suppose…” I breathed as his chest strained beneath his grey t-shirt. He was the one seducing me, yet he was just as affected. “What did you have in mind?”
His eyes lingered on my lips. “Do something for me and I’ll kiss you right here, right now.”
My mental capacity crashed.
His eyes burned hot into mine. “It’s a huge, huge favour.”
The way he said huge made me think he’d swapped the word favour for cock.
I burned up as his thumb grazed my cheekbone.
He murmured, “If you did it, I’d do whatever you want.”
What, you’d chase me? Pretend to be a policeman and handcuff me? Reach inside my head and be prepared to play with me?
My tummy clenched. “What are you proposing I do?” I held the squirming dog as she tried to wriggle into my scrubs, looking for warmth. Not that I could blame her—it was fairly chilly in here with the air conditioning.
“You’d do it?” His eyes turned luminous. “For me?”
Way to go, Ves. Don’t sound desperate or anything.
He smiled. “You’re such a kind, sweet…” His head tilted, bringing his mouth close to mine. His scent of outdoors and timber shot up my nose as he brought me forward, our lips only inches apart. “…amazing woman. I’m so fucking hard for you right now, Vesper.”
Dangnamit, everything inside me tightened, melted, swapped ownership and put its hands in the air to flay like idiots over how much I liked this guy.
How much I wanted this guy.
“Tell me what you want me to do, Ryder.” I licked my lips, almost hyperventilating with how much I needed him to kiss me.
“Christ, I love it when you say my name.” His thumb ran over my bottom lip, pulling it down as he pressed the lightest kiss there. “Vesper, I wouldn’t just ask this of any other woman. I’m asking you because you’re so damn incredible.”
Ask me what?
You want me naked and on all fours?
Got it, give me three seconds.
You want me to dress up in a nurse’s uniform and look after you instead of the dogs you bring in?
Hell yes, get on my table and drop ‘em.
I swallowed again. “Spit it out. I need to know.”
My heart needed to know before it galloped from my chest and left me a corpse.
“Okay, here it goes. Can you, Vesper Fairfax…knit?”
I blinked, wrenching my face from his hold. “What did you just say?”
He bit his lip, shaking with mirth. “I asked how skilful you are with two needles and some wool.”
“Why? Do you have some crazy fetish you’re trying to admit to?”
“I have fetishes, but needles aren’t included.” He couldn’t hold back his laughter anymore. “Man, you should see your face.”
You should see what you did to my knickers, you jerk.

The Remingtons: Love on the Wind by P.C. Zick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This author is new to me and I have to say I would definitely read more of their work. Although the story is combined with Melissa Foster's Remington world, the author did a good job making it a story of it's own.
Kiley and Jeff had both come to the beach to finally take a break from their busy lives. Their first run in with one another leaves them with bad impressions but as they are forced to spend time in the same place the chemistry between them can't be denied. Despite the developing emotions it's not all smooth sailing from there. Pasts need to be overcome to see if they can move forward with one another.
This was a great mix of characters you may already know and love and new characters who will keep you interested and wanting to know if they find the love they both deserve or if they get stuck in their pasts.
