Cole is the sheriff of his small town. He is the town golden boy, who went off to the Army Rangers, got injured, and came home. He ran for sheriff, and the former sheriff was a lazy jerk, so they elected Cole happily. But, his mom is always bugging him about bringing home a girl for her to meet, and the town's women are all throwing themselves at him left and right. He has no interest in any of them, and he hasn't since he got home. He's been focused on his job and making sure the town has what it needs.
Catherine's dad disappeared on her a couple years ago and she hasn't seen him since. For a while his disability checks kept coming, so she was able to keep the bills paid, and keep herself fed. But they stopped about a month ago, and now she's in trouble. She just turned 18, and the house has been foreclosed on. She's just trying to hang on for a couple more months so she can finish high school. But, she REALLY hates going to school, as all the mean girls bully her, and the rich guy won't leave her alone. As soon as she's done with school, she can get a job. She's been sneaking into her house and sleeping there at night, but the bank finally catches on, and boards it up, and she has nowhere else to go.
When Cole saves Catherine from the snowstorm, and takes her home with him, he knows she's it for him. He doesn't care that she's 10 years younger, or that he's sheriff. He's willing to risk anything for her. Their chemistry was instant, and they really fell for each other quickly, which is to be expected in an AR book. I enjoyed how Cole was all about his girl, and wasn't worried about any potential consequences. He just wanted to take care of her.
I did have a couple issues here which were a bit of a surprise, as I don't normally have any problems with AR's books. The "bad guy" at Catherine's school, was named Ren. That is the hero's name in my very favorite Alexa Riley book, so I really hated seeing that. I don't normally care if an author reuses names across unrelated books, but it's a pretty distinctive name, so it totally threw me for a loop. Also, there was never any resolution regarding Catherine's father, and what happened to him (or her mom for that matter). It just left things feeling unfinished for me.
As I said, I enjoyed the connection between the main characters, and the sexy times were hot, as always, but something about this one just didn't quite sit right with me. I still look forward to what's next from AR, as they are almost always a hit for me.
there is no turning back from making her his...
Cole and Catherine have become my ultimate favorite characters by Alexa Riley, and that says something because I love the majority of AR's books and their filthy, but beautiful characters. This story however, was different in a way that makes you attracted to not only Cole but also the backstory that Catherine has had with the issues from her parents.
This story is smut to the next level of tenderness. One in which I read for a second time, right after finishing it for the first time. There is an age difference in which some may find repulsive, but to me I saw it as something that makes you question the control that Cole has had over the women that throw themselves at him. That obviously stops after he meets Catherine one cold night outside her old house that is now owned by the bank because her father past away and the bills just kept coming in and she could not take care of them. For Cole however, her presence is one that he finds alluring and in a way mystical to him since his body acts in ways that is unknown to his knowledge. His need to protect Catherine and make sure she falls in love with him is something that is not knew in regards to AR's writing, but it is always welcomed to my eyes when reading it as I find it endearing.
Overall, this insta-love romance story has me melting for more. AR's is releasing another book next week and my fingers are itching for it. I will never get tired of their smutty books that always have me salivating for the possessive, alpha males they both create. Thank you AR for letting me read an advance copy of this beauty. Make sure to grab yourself a copy!

Catherine was left alone at 16 after her father disappeared on her and she didn’t have anyone to depend on. She had only herself so she made due. She was planning on graduating high school and getting out of the town and moving away since she is now 18 but her hope pretty much disappears. Its winter time and she finds the door to her home boarded and nailed shut. She has been barely surviving on things she can take without anyone noticing…but she knows her luck has just about run out. Cole is the sheriff and he is good man. He is recovering from injuries received in the military. He is a sexy, rugged man who has been celibate for some time. When Cole saves Catherine from the snowstorm, something about her instantly tells him she's it for him. He immediately takes her to his home and that really gets this story going. Cole and Catherine have this beautiful love story. There is an age difference yet it enhances the story and shows age is just a number. I loved how Cole went to work at showing Catherine how she really meant everything to him; how he cared for her and would be there for her no matter what. I felt so much for all Catherine had been thru. This story really hit the mark with me. I think if there was anything I would say as a minor sour note would be there was no resolution as to where Catherine’s father went to or where her mom ended up. That was left unfinished. Otherwise this was a solid home run winner read for me.
My Rating: 4.9 stars *****
