Author: W. Ferraro
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 18, 2014
Jaded and hardened by the ultimate of betrayals, Clearwater Falls Sheriff Gage Dennison is content with his simple, detached life. With only his loyal dog at his side, Gage has successfully maintained the walls he’s built around his life and heart for eight years. From his secluded house at the end of a private road, to the solitude of a small town sheriff, he has no trouble keeping everyone just where he wants them – at a distance. But Gage soon learns his walls are not as solid as he thought them to be. Despite all his efforts, and against his will, Gage’s new neighbor Delaney Collins threatens to crack his once-impenetrable walls. Unprepared for the constant verbal sparring, and growing physical attraction to Delaney, Gage is suddenly fighting an internal war he never expected. His brain and reason insist he keep his distance, but his body refuses to listen. Especially when the lure of her warm, willing body soothing his bruised and battered soul is too much to resist. As the demons of his past are revealed, will Gage crumble under the weight of his fear? Or will he find the strength necessary to tear down his walls and hold on to the only woman that offers him a second chance at love?
“They’re kind of like puppies with a new toy. They are all over it at first but soon grow bored and go off to sniff their butts and chase their tails.”
“All of his kisses should come with warning labels; each one was better than the last.”
“I want you now, just as I will want you in fifty years. You don’t complete me; you make me.”
“You took the sparkle out of her eyes. So think about that when she tells you to go shit in your hat.”
This was a sweet ride that turned into a bit of an emotional roller coaster that had me clutching my kindle for fear it wasn’t going to work out for them. I wanted to slap that hunky sheriff in the back of the head, and might even consider a “junk punch” or two to have be in order when he was being such a stubborn jackass that could not see past his own pain. What a lovely and refreshing story of two hurt and broken people learning to love again. And the steamy sensual love scenes are always an added bonus. This was my first W. Ferraro read, but it certainly will not be my last.
