Pilot-for-hire Zoe Stone is happy to call Sunshine, Idaho, her home base. But her quiet life is thrown for a loop when her brother’s friend Parker comes to stay with her for a week. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife special agent is a handsome flirt with a gift for getting under her skin. And the situation only escalates when Parker hires her to fly him around the area while he collects evidence on a suspected smuggler.
Now she has to live and work with the guy. But when they’re in the air, she sees another side of him. He’s driven, focused, and sharp. And while he enjoys giving commentary on her blind dates, she quickly realizes with a shock that it’s Parker who gets her engines going…
Zoe Stone doesn’t want commitment or to really change her life despite what she says. She likes her falling apart house, her rescue dog Oreo and her life as a pilot, then comes along Parker to shake everything up.
Parker is a great hero, because he’s also a workaholic like Zoe with a dangerous job, but he can’t help but fix things around her house when she’s not watching. I also adored his soft spot for her dog. I really liked him. He was pretty much perfect.
This was as enjoyable as I’ve come to expect from the Animal Magnetism series, it had the small town feel and left me feeling warm and fuzzy. Ms. Shalvis always delivers fantastic stories and this one definitely had me happily reading to the end.
