Former Marine Noah Tager is managing his dad's bar and holding tight to the feeling that his time overseas led to failure. The members of his small town think he's a war hero, but after everything he's witnessed, Noah doesn't want a pat on the back. The only thing he desires is a second chance with his best friend's little sister.
Josie's determined to hold onto her heart and not repeat her mistakes, but when danger arrives on Noah's doorstep and takes aim at Josie, they just might discover that sometimes love is worth the risk

I really enjoyed Serving Trouble. I liked both Josie and Noah tremendously and wanted to see them find their happily ever after. I found Noah’s reluctance to be a hero very realistic for a returning war veteran but like Josie I wasn’t fooled into believing him to be the jerk he claimed he’d become. My heart ached for all that Josie had been through. As a women, I couldn’t read about her plight and not have deep sympathy for her.
Stone didn’t drag out Noah and Josie getting back together and I’m glad she didn’t torture them and us that way. The story moved at a good speed and their relationship progressed nicely. The scene with the kittens was excellent for giving us insight into Noah’s state of mind and to make Josie even more sympathetic. The suspense and the surprise twist about who was taking pot shots at the group created good tension.
I wish I’d read this book before Mixing Temptation. I would definitely have understood more what was going on with Caroline and Josh. Serving Trouble is my favorite Stone book…so far.
