Blurb: 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.
In this novella, re-released by the author, we get a clueless police officer in a small New Mexico town who gets swept off his feet by a hunky Deputy Mayor. Included we have two adorable rescued dogs, a funny secretary, a sleazy ex and a bit of alcohol, too.
This is on the short side, but it definitely felt satisfying. We get a great picture of the longing Clint has for Hawk and the patience Hawk demonstrates waiting for Clint to wake up! There’s a bit of humor, lots of dirty talk and a really sweet HEA. Super fun, light and a great pick-me-up. Recommended!
Overall Impression: I loved it!
