A convenient, casual, and completely orgasmic fling. What more could a girl want?
For the past year, barista Ally Barrett has been content to spend her weekends distracting River Bend’s hottest commodity—the sexy, too-serious sheriff. Their casual arrangement suits her independent nature just fine…until it doesn’t.
Sheriff and Army Guardsman Mark Dunn lives to serve the people of his community and his country. Ally is the only woman who’s never asked for more than his nights—and the only one he’s ever considered giving his days, as well. Too bad duty says otherwise.
When an unexpected pregnancy flips their no-strings understanding on its head—and tarnishes both of their reputations—Mark has a tough time proving he wants a real relationship and not just reelection. But if this sheriff knows anything, it's how to fight for what he believes in—Ally’s heart.
Warning: This book contains a hero who’s all business and no play…unless there’s a dress and a hot redhead involved.
Great hot read!
Ally and Mark have a story that is probably too common. They both love one another but are afraid to voice it - for fear of rejection. Mark is the sheriff of their beloved town and Ally is a barista and baker at the local coffee shop.
Ally has decided if he is just going to leave her hanging then she needs to move on. She kisses someone else while he is in the opposite corner with friends and it all crashes down around them. Mark realizes he should have told her sooner, and Ally thinks she blew it all and it is just over.
Mark has had a lot of pressure recently, what with being sheriff, needing Ally, an election coming up, a new contender for the election and now this. Ally and Mark seem to be on again off again lovers - but they both want they same goal. They just need to get together and talk about it. When they do get together it seems the sparks don't just fly... they explode in a powerful way! The heat between these two, its almost like a physical heat wave!!
Once they meet each other's families... they try to take things to a whole new level and make more time to talk. The signals keep getting crossed. Then one night, there is a fire and Mark almost loses Ally and this is the wake up call he thought for sure was coming. It was if he felt he could lose her that he kept her away from his heart. Then he realizes finally, that she is his heart and makes changes so he can show her as well as tell her.
They live in a small town and everyone has some opinion about what is going on with their relationship. There is even a new neighbor who seems like he might give Mark competition for Ally - but Ally knows what she has always wanted. That is Mark Dunn.
