Get ready to fall for Roan and Aspen in their grumpy-sunshine, single mom, small town romance, from USA Today Bestselling Author, Catherine Cowles!

It was supposed to be a fresh start. A small town where I could hide my little girl from the shadows that haunt us. A place where I could keep us safe.

The last thing I expected was him.

A surly, broody mountain of a man who helps me save an injured deer in a snowstorm.

Now, Roan Hartley keeps showing up with his glowers and grimaces. But they only make his rare smiles and the gentle way he talks to my daughter mean that much more.

When forces from my past find us, Roan is determined to keep us safe—even if that means sleeping on my ancient couch every night.

As days turn to weeks, his touch has my walls crashing down. But someone out there doesn’t want me to find happiness. He doesn’t want me left breathing at all…

My Thoughts:

Stepping foot back into Cedar Ridge, I felt like I was the one finding a family again! Each couple holds a special place in my heart, but there is always one that I immediately know are going to be my favorite. Roan and Aspen have been on my mind since the start of the series. Now, I may change my mind once I get to read about Lawson and the woman who makes him fall, but for now, these two have my heart wrapped around them!

Aspen and Cady are such a sweet mother-daughter combo and although not much was revealed in previous books, it was obvious that they had a past. Roan has unfairly suffered at the very idea that he could’ve been involved with hurting Wren, thus, turning into the reclusive, grumpy man at the start. I absolutely love a broody kind of man who can’t stop falling down the slope once he meets his match. And this time, it’s not just the leading lady who gets him to fall – it’s the sweet little Cady! Her heart is so big, kind, and full of optimism.

I absolutely love everything about this book. While I love Roan as a bit broody, when he begins to shine, it’s spectacular. Aspen handles her situation in the best way she knows how, and I adore that she remains open and honest with Cady. The suspense is perfectly built, sprinkled in with just enough hints to keep you questioning who could be behind everything. And then it’s soothed with heat that sends your heart soaring. Catherine has the true authority for giving us the perfect balance!
