This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
When Todd Harris makes the move from the mean streets of Chicago to the sleepy roads of Marietta, Montana, it’s not just his career that’s changing… it’s his entire life. Going from police officer to forest ranger isn’t too much of a stretch, but getting used to how things work in a small town is. As he settles in, Todd realizes he loves the slower pace of the countryside, but then… an Olympic gold medalist comes to town and shatters his hard fought peace.
But the town’s new forest ranger doesn’t like attention and he sure as hell isn’t looking for any kind of relationship with someone who does. When Molly Cordero gets lost in the woods though and Todd is the one who saves her, the spark he’s been trying to ignore smolders and ignites. It's then that he realizes there’s a lot more to Molly than ambition and public adulation.
When Todd signs up for the Men of Marietta calendar shoot to raise money for Harry's House, a place for children to commemorate a fallen firefighter, Molly realizes the kind of man he is. With the shoot wrapping up, she faces a painful decision–return to her old life, or give her new life with Todd a fighting chance.
Falling for the Ranger
Kaylie is a new author for me. She gave us a good story line. I had a hard time trying to put this book down. This is about two people who have changed their lives. It is hard. Todd was a policeman and just couldn't bear it to work in it's atmosphere anymore. He winds up in Marietta and joins the Rangers. He can stay away from people that way. Molly was an Olympian diver. She was never told 'no' until she crumbled and went to visit her cousin Becky in Marietta. Major Spoiler. Todd is divorced. Major Spoiler! Molly is hiding from her crash. She has lost almost everything. Becky keeps her in line. Lou is the safety rope for Todd. This is a teary story so keep tissues close. This is a mature read. I liked this story. I hope you enjoy reading this book! Don't let it get away! I volunteered to read and review this book.
Hot Men in Marietta
I loved Falling for the Ranger by Kaylie Newell, the fourth book in the Men of Marietta series. This story has two lost souls who meet and find an attraction that surprises both of them. Neither is sure that this is what they want or that it is the solution to the problems in their lives.
I liked the manner in which the struggle Todd had with posing for the calendar was described in addition to the way he decided that he had to do it, for Harry. Todd also needed to stop judging all women based on the way his ex-wife treated him. Molly had so much more to deal with considering her out of control life, anger with the world, what she wanted to do with the rest of her life and how to earn a living.
I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. I highly recommend this book to other readers.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Loved this story of two lost souls both with heartbreak in their lives. Todd, is a forest ranger from Chicago. where he was a police officer looking for a better life with his wife to raise their family. His wife decided this was not the place for her though. Molly, an ex Olympic diver, who has decided this was not the life for her, visits her cousin in Marietta to figure out what she wants in life. While Molly is hiking she meets up with Todd and his dog, Bug. They are opposites but soon find there is a mutual attraction between the two. The only problem, Molly is only there for a short time.
Loved this installment in the Men of Marietta. Great banter between Molly and Todd. Oh, and Bug, of so cute. Plenty of twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages. This is my first book by Kaylie, and will not be my last, love her story telling.
