Todd had been crushing hard on Richard and when he had an opportunity to stay at Richard's guesthouse for three months, he jumped at the chance. Todd not only seems young, he even act like a naive little boy sometimes. He crave Richard's attention and guidance, which is bordering on D/s. Too bad the whole D/s didn't extend to the bedroom, or else it might have been hot.
I know a lot of people had issue with Richard. He seems to demand too much, but didn't communicate his desire to Todd. But I am thinking Todd is a head case as well. He seems to think is perfectly fine to sleep around when he is bored, even though he want something more with Richard. Like seriously! He needs Richard to spell out 'm.o.n.o.g.a.m.y.' for him to get it.
This couple is just too much nuisance for me to feel emotionally invested. Todd is adorable at times, but he is simply too dense.
Smitty's Sheriff is the third novella in the Hope series. Each book can be read as standalone but you can easily read the whole series in a day. It's a fast, sexy, and fun series about the men in a small town called Hope. Cardeno C. has a way of writing so much story in such a small amount of time. She makes it look easy when I know it can't be. Smitty's Sheriff is Todd and Richard's story.
Richard walked away from Todd six months ago. He cut all contact with the young man that he spent sporadic nights with for three years. He is now forty and wanted someone he could come home to every night. He wished it could have been Todd but he was too young to settle down. And Todd didn't share. It was three years of hook-ups. He had to move on. But, he couldn't stop thinking about Todd and how maybe it could have been more...
Todd wanted Richard the minute he saw him. It didn't matter that he was only twenty and Richard was thirty-seven. He wanted the man that took control. Control over his thoughts. Control over his safety. He wanted him and he had him for three years. Some nights anyway and in secret. Then Richard ends it. And it causes Todd to grow and when he gets his chance to spend a few months near him, he takes it. Maybe this is his only chance to figure out why Richard walked away.
Richard and Todd's relationship for those three years was lacking communication. Now, it's time to communicate. Will they get finally be on the same page?
Overall...I thought this was a great story! It's a fast read full of heat, heart, and growth. It was awesome catching up with the rest of the characters in the city of Hope. I have a feeling this isn't the end of the series.
“Better safe than sorry.”
“That’s, like, your life mantra or something. I should get it printed on a T-shirt for you.”
“I’m not meant to be viewed at a G rating.”
“I like your outfit.”
Smitty’s Sheriff is book 3 in the Hope Collection. Each novella contains interconnected characters, but can be read as standalones. It’s perfect for me as I get to catch up with my favourites from the previous books. I’m just greedy like that, lol!
I love this series (surprise, not!) and the men who inhabit Hope. Though some more than others (*coughs* Tanner – see Jesse’s Diner). It contains the perfect mix for me; m/m and a May to December romance.
As readers of the series will know, we are first introduced to Todd in book 1 where, how can I say this politely, he didn’t make a good first impression *shrugs* So, I was surprised to find out that his love interest was none other than the town sheriff, Richard.
Though looking at him with fresh eyes, I’ve come to the realisation that our young Mr Smitty is just misunderstood. Fiercely loyal and protective of those he cares about – at times he comes across in the wrong way due to his inability to communicate how he feels. Naturally submissive, he craves guidance and a controlling hand. And only one man fits the bill…
Richard is the complete opposite to Todd. Ex-military, he has a take-charge persona which bleeds in to all aspects of his life. I freely admit that Rich rubbed me up the wrong way in this book at times. At the start of the book, I understood his thoughts and fears, but as the story progressed I wanted to have a few choice words with him. Well, I found myself shouting one word repeatedly; communicate! You know what they say about assuming anything, don’t you? *snorts*
I’m a big fan of this author’s writing, and if you are looking for a quick read full of heat and heart then I can’t recommend this book enough.
