Running Wild (Second Shot 0.5)
by Sara Jane Stone
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.
When I started Running Wild I was under the assumption that it was a prequel novella to the series where the characters from the series are introduced but the main characters get their HEA... So to say that I'm disappointed with how things ended is an understatement. Don't get me wrong, this was a cute novella but if I had known that it was going to end the way it did I probably wouldn't have read it or would have at least waited until the next book came out.
Anyway, Running Wild is about wild child, Josie, and her big brother's BFF, Noah. Noah is the town's hero who's enlisted in the Marines and wants to spend his last night with Josie, the girl he's always had feelings for but was totally off limits.
Josie, being the wild child, always figured good boy Noah wouldn't want her so, of course, she's shocked when he starts acting on his feelings on his last night in town. Unfortunately, their time together ends abruptly when her brother comes looking for Noah and poor Josie is left with a broken heart when Noah just up and walks away.
After reading the snippet for Serving Trouble, the next book in this series, I'm interested to see what's going to happen between these two and hopefully, in the end, they'll get their much deserved HEA.
