When sparks fly she can’t help finding herself falling fast for the new sheriff in town.
I enjoyed this story, I thought the characters were good, I loved Robert. He's sweet and sensitive but sexy and kick butt too. Amelia, she's sweet too and has such a great personality. I loved these two together, I liked how they always thought of each other when they were away. I just felt the story was a little lost in the emotion. There was a lot of emotional parts but they seemed glossed over almost, it was a good story and I enjoyed the small town people and Robert being sheriff (which everyone in town loved, including Amelia's mother) but I just felt parts were to step by step no real wow to them. I would love to read more by this author I think she has a great characters and interesting plots. 3.5 to 4 stars
