Single father Kevin O’Donnell would do anything to give his daughter Holly a stable life—including leave the Air Force and take a job working at Knight and Day Flight Tours in charming Jupiter Point, California. After his wild daredevil past, he’s sworn off relationships until Holly turns eighteen. Just three more years. No problem; he’s got this under control. Until a chance encounter with a smart, sassy bombshell—who just happens to be his new boss’s sister.
Since her father’s unsolved murder, Cassie Knight has spent over a decade on the road with her mother, memories chasing the fragile woman from town to town…or so Cassie thought. Only after returning to Jupiter Point does she learn something—or someone—all too real triggered their life on the run. Now, with her brother closing in on their father’s killer, Cassie’s free to pursue her own happiness for the first time. Enter smart, sexy, funny Kevin O’Donnell.
Of course they’ll have to keep it light. There’s a big off-limits sign on Kevin’s heart, and Cassie’s ready to hit the road the minute her father’s killer is found. She can do light—no problem. But she didn’t count on their sizzling chemistry…Holly’s suddenly odd behavior…and a killer who’s more cunning than the Knight family ever suspected. Too hot to handle? There’s only one way to find out.
Another fabulous book in the Jupiter Point series. This book is about the Knight sister, Cassie, who has been gone from Jupiter Point for 12 years with her mother. Kevin is the new mechanic at Knight & Day Air and moved there for a fresh start with his 15 yr old daughter, Holly. Cassie and Kevin first meet in a bar and the attraction is instant for both of them. Although they both aren’t looking for a relationship, Cassie figures she will be leaving town again because her mother doesn’t seem to stay in one place long and she will need to go with her again. Kevin told his daughter he would put he first and hold off on any relationships until she is 18 because of the chaos his ex wife caused in their daughter’s life. Cassie and Kevin both work as mechanics at the airfield even though Cassie works on cars in her separate corner of the shop. A friendship happens instantly even though the attraction is running right under the surface. It doesn’t take long before they can’t deny it any longer. They are a great couple and it was great that they became friends before they really got involved.
The murder of the Knight’s father ends in this book. I like how it was an underlying thread in the story but didn’t takeover til the end. I like how it was dealt with. I am looking forward to the last Knight brother’s book. It will be interesting to read Aiden’s book and see how the murder of his father, growing up without a mother and being raised by a brother made him the man he is now. If you have enjoyed the Jupiter Point series you will enjoy this book too.

When his former Air Force buddy Ben Knight offers him a job with Knight and Day Flight Tours, he jumps at the opportunity. Kevin has also sworn off relationships in order to focus on Holly. Until he meets Cassie at the local bar....
I loved Cassie! She's spunky, sassy, caring, funny, AND a mechanic. She's AWESOME! I thought her brothers were so sweet to buy her a lift and give her a place to set up shop. I enjoyed Kevin and Cassie's friendship, easy banter. The touch of suspense at the end had me on the edge of my seat. I'm glad the killer is finally revealed! I can't wait to read Aiden's story. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
I’ve been a fan of Jennifer Bernard’s writing since I first discovered her books 4 years ago and this Jupiter Point book is a compelling addition to the evolving storyline of the Knight brothers’ quest to find the man who murdered their father. Cassie Knight is a fascinating character because she’s been on the run, being the adult in her relationship with her anxiety ridden mother and never getting too attached to anything or anyone. Back in Jupiter Point she’s a fish out of water; struggling to establish a new connection with her brothers and her hometown after a decade long separation. She finds her attraction to single father, Kevin O’Donnell, hard to resist but it’s not the only complication in her life that makes her feel like running away again. This book combines great storytelling, complex family dynamics and a breathtaking conclusion that is sure to appeal to contemporary romance fans of all ages. I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary and unsolicited review are completely my own.
