Say No to Joe?, by Lori Foster is a contemporary romance with some suspense and a slight mystery underlying the theme of family and love.
Despite the story starting with Joe Winston recovering from injuries occurring after a date, he proclaims that he's interested in Luna Clark and has been wanting to date her for months. His statements and dating actions don't quite match up, yet he doesn't date another woman after Luna shows up at his house requesting help.
As the new guardian of her late cousin's kids, Luna is moving to a small town to care for the kids she's never met. Since there are unknown individuals attempting to hurt her new family, Luna invites Joe along to help them. While Joe is definitely an alpha with protective hero tendencies, despite his bad-boy style and intense work history, he has also attracted danger that follows him to their new town.
As the story continues, Joe and Luna attempt a relationship with a lot of drama and danger surrounding them and the kids, who are adorably entertaining in their interactions with Joe and Luna. This book is a reissue, which is quite evident with the mention of VCRs and movie rental shops.
Say No to Joe? is geared towards those who enjoy reading contemporary romances with a little mystery intermixed in the story.
