When love’s on the line, the brave jump in with both feet…
Small town cop Clint Rivera can’t catch a break. His ex of two weeks is suddenly getting married, his dogs tore up his furniture, he’s getting evicted, and he’s out of beer. When he decides to solve his alcohol shortage by going to his ex’s engagement party, Clint winds up too drunk to drive himself home.
Enter gorgeous deputy mayor Hawk Black, the man who constantly shows up unexpectedly and sends Clint’s body and mind into a tailspin with nothing but his whiskey voice and blue eyes. After months of patience, Hawk can finally seduce the man he’s been craving.
Clint’s day might not have started out well, but Hawk’s going to make sure it ends with a bang, preferably in bed. He’ll show Clint some rewards are worth the risk. With love on the line, Clint will need to decide if he can open his heart, tear down his shields, and jump in with both feet.
Clint is a man seriously in need of some good luck. His day has been one disaster after another and just when it looks like he might be making the biggest mistake, his knight in shining armour shows up.
Hawk is a man with a plan. He’s got Clint in his sights and he’s bound and determined to show him that there’s definitely rewards to letting your heart love again.
I couldn’t help but empathise with Clint. I’ve had days that feel like nothing good is ever going to happen and the author does a great job of painting us a graphic picture of his troubles. Hawk is a bit of a mystery but his loyalty and drive to a mutually happy end game make him easy to swoon over and smile at.
I liked the story, the romance is sweet and the sex is so hot. I really wanted these guys to work in the end and they did.
My only complaint is that it was too rushed for me. I’m not a big fan of instalove, although the author does make a good go of it. I would have liked to have seen a little more wooing going on…and a little more angst.
But if you are a Cardeno C fan, this will leave you smiling as I find this author definitely has a distinctive voice in their writing and its one a appreciate a lot.
There’s not much else I can say about this story without giving it all away, but I can guarantee that while I could have read a lot more about these two men, I truly did appreciate the wonderful story we got.
