What I liked about it:
Thad and Sadie develop an instant bond through their instinctive trust and understanding of each others irrational fears. Sadie’s overcoming her fear of the dark after being brutally attacked and robbed while she walked alone at night a few months ago and Thad is dealing with guilt and shame over his role in his brother’s incarceration. They support and encourage each other and ultimately discover between them an unconditional acceptance.
I liked Sadie, she was sweet and funny and had a bit of a wild streak in her. She took a risk on Thad and it paid off for her.
Thad was a great hero, he was a bit rusty with the whole dating/relationship thing. But his rough edges were smoothed out where it counted.
Wish it was a tad bit longer though . . .
I loved revisiting this series because I really enjoy the characters and stories this author shares. I enjoy myself so much so that I was bummed when this when ended so soon. I thought it would be a full length novel like her first three but this one is actually a novella.
I didn’t mind the fast time line of the relationship for Thad and Sadie because I assumed we would have more page time with them. Sadly that was not the case here. I felt the ending was a bit rushed and although we get a nice epilogue of them six months later, now living together and in a solid relationship, I sorely missed the “I love you” from them. I fully believe these two belong together so it was kind of a let down that they didn’t cement their HEA and instead ended it on a HFN ending. I hope we get an update of them in other installments *fingers crossed*
I still love this series and I hope the next in line is a bit lengthier. The sneak peek at the end of this one was really good and I can’t wait to read it next!
The house broken into belongs to one of the new professors at the local college. Along with the sheriff's past he gave up women and it has been quite a while since he has really looked twice at a woman. Being the guy he is, he gets quite a few women hitting on him but he doesn't take them up on it. However, this professor is looking pretty good to him and he hopes that his dry spell is about to come to an end.,
The professor is quite taken by the sheriff as well. What is there not to like? He is tall, good-looking, sexy and single. From this moment on things start to happen. This is a good story, loved the hero as well as his brother. Makes you sad for the childhood they had and the things they endured and then had to pay for but the story is about hope and rebirth. I really enjoyed it and I would definitely recommend it. On the sexy scale I would give it a 4 out of 10. Personally I think it would be appropriate for YA as well as older teens. Nothing happening that they don't either know about or have done! But some readers may not like it so be warned. I think it is a good story and the sex fit right where it was suppose to.
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am not kin to this writer. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 9/4/17.
"Thaddeus Preston read through the week-old e-mail one more time before laying his Clayton, wouldhead on the back of his swivel chair and staring up at the pockmarked tiles of his office." Laying his Clayton? Wouldhead? Clayton Wouldhead? I scratched my own head over this for a couple of minutes. Ooph! This is followed by a sentence in the second paragraph that makes no sense. At that point, I just about deleted the novella from my reader. Given the rest of the well written story, I can only assume this was some kind of formatting glitch. Trentham has a way with words and a better than average vocabularly. There is a disappointing tendency among romance authors to assume their audience are less literate than the usual reader.
"His brain seemed to be giving an ironic handclap to his sexually addled thought process."
"The darkened maw of the room beckoned."
"He swung his feet to the floor and ruffled his hair before he stood and reached for his pants, his butt on display. Meanwhile she had the sheet to her chin in a death clutch." Ha!
Both lead characters come with interesting back stories, nothing TSTL or any of the usual tropes. I will certainly be seeing what else Trentham has written. You should know that there is explicit sex (well done) so if that is an issue for you, be warned. As well, the kindle version ends at 78% which is always a bit of a shocker if you are expected the story to go longer.
After reading a series of duds, it was great to find a book that made me want to read more. This is definitely worth a try.
