Description

Setting up my stunning best friend should have been easy—and my brother’s best friend Jaeger seemed like the perfect candidate. Until I saw him again.

Whoa.

Jaeger Lang, my secret high school crush, has grown up and bulked up. But that doesn’t matter, because I have a perfect life. Really.

Even so, I could keep my hands to myself…if not for those hard abs, broad shoulders, and intense green eyes.

I should hold back in case my friend is interested. Or in case Jaeger’s ex has some claim on him. Or in case of a million other reasons.

But if he’s not willing to play by the rules, I don’t think I can either.

**Each book in the Men of Lake Tahoe Series is a standalone story that can be read in any order.**

Hard Wood (Book 1) – Jaeger
Mountain Man (Book 2) – Lewis
Rebound Roommate (Book 3) – Tyler
Hookup Master (Novella, Book 4) – Zach
Cocky Prince (Book 5) – Adam

"Jules Barnard deftly avoids NA cliches, delivering fresh settings, realistic characters and smart writing that will have readers eagerly awaiting her next release." ~ Lauren Layne, USA Today Bestselling Author

    This a good read, some twists to keep you interested. Blue is not the right title for this book because it will not make sad. Have a great time relaxing and enjoy this read. The leads are a little dramatic at times and it does mess with your mind on perception of your relationships. Open communication is key and don't be afraid to ask. Crispy B

    This is one of those "cleanse your pallet" reads. A book that just lets you sink into the story and characters that are relatable. I'm not much of a NA reader, but this author has me hooked!! I enjoyed this book.

    Story moved along. The next in the series hopefully will be the same.

    I can hardly believe that a woman would be acting like this in assuming so much drama and insecure. I don't think women should act like that'll be like that and I don't think these are like that. This is obviously a book just for women. I thought that was going to be a little mystery your crime drama in it or something.
  • I fell over a cliff hanger!

    Definitely one of the best books I've ever read! It seemed a bit boring at first, but I pushed myself to continue reading it and boy did I make the right decision! I felt so connected with Cali and her emotions towards Jaegar! And from just the book cover I can totally imagine Jaegar being that HOT! Let's admit it everyone! We all wish we had someone as hot as him to eye everyday. Mmhmm. (SPOILER ALERT!) And then that Kate and baby part! Totally unexpected! But that's what made it even better! However, what happened with Tyler and his teaching??? How about Gen and Lewis?? Or did she end up with Mason? So many answers I want to know! I hope there will be future books telling their side of the story! To wrap all of this up! I loved the entire book and the ending, despite not getting my answers!
  • Enjoyed the story, did not like the female protagonist

    It's hard to write a review for this book. I like the author's style of writing, enjoyed the story and the male protagonist but it took more than half the book before I could feel anything but irritated by the female protagonist. First of all she is smug, self-righteous and superior. Then she is painted as someone who never shys from a confrontation or keeps her opinions to herself and yet she lets the executive from the casino attack her and sexually harass her and her friend and never says a word?! No way...huge character inconsistency. I do like the way the minor female character is developed, I enjoyed the story and I am definitely going to read the next book so I certainly recommend the author. I just could not develop any empathy for Cali.
  • Great book
