"Well paced, well-written, a romantic delight."
-Lori Wilde, New York Times bestselling author
The Garner brothers are poster boys for the ski resort town of Glory Junction, California. But as much as they love outdoor thrills, they know how to create indoor thrills, too . . .
Colt Garner thrives on adrenaline. As Glory Junction’s police chief and the co-owner of Garner Adventure, he knows where to find danger and excitement. Unfortunately his new neighbor, fussy, transplanted city girl Delaney Scott, is anything but a thrill, even if she is as gorgeously curved as a killer ski slope. They have nothing in common but a shared driveway they’re arguing over . . . and a mutual attraction neither of them can fight.
Starting over was not in designer Delaney’s plans. But now that her rotten ex has walked away with the rights to her brand, she needs to reinvent herself, and fast. It’s not easy with bold, brash Colt next door, too handsome for his own good, and, she’s sure, too unreliable for hers. But as small town life throws them together again and again, Colt and Delaney find that simple romance may be the most exhilarating gamble of all . . .
The Sheriff and The Designer
Colt is the oldest of the Garner brothers, but the only one who doesn't work for Garner Adventures. Garner Adventures specializes in extreme sports adventures (rock climbing, hiking, river rafting, etc) in the summer and skiing in the winter. While Colt fills in as a guide often, his full-time job is Sheriff of Glory Junction. Colt enjoys serving people in his hometown and generally doesn't have major issues, until Delaney moves in next door. Colt and Delaney are constantly fighting over a parking spot, each refusing to cede to the other. Colt also has issues with the newly elected mayor. The new mayor is looking to replace Colt for his own nefarious reasons. Colt could work for Garner Adventures, but it's not his true passion.
Delaney is a famous fashion designer that's recently divorced. Since Delaney was awarded the house in Glory Junction, she's moved there to heal and come up with a new line she can debut during fashion week. Delaney spends her days staring at her sketch board, trying to come up with ideas only to come up with nothing. She passes time making costumes for the kiddos for a play and spending time with Colt. Since she and Colt got off to a bad start, she decides to make him a pair of cargo shorts. Cargo shorts that end up leading to a sports line she has no intentions of designing--at first.
Delaney and Colt have both suffered bad relationships and are not looking for anything more than friendship. When Delaney doubts her design abilities, Colt is there with encouraging words. Delaney also has Colt's back when he comforts his ex and while he awaits his job decision.
I loved this novel! Delaney is sassy, but kind, supportive, and loving. The town people are funny and have each other's back. I enjoyed seeing Colt's "softer" side with his singing. I can't wait to read about the remaining Garner brothers!!! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
I am completely head over heels in love with the Garner Brothers! If this book is any indication this new series from Stacy Finz should be fantastically fun and swoon worthy.
In this first full length story of the series we meet Colt Garner. Town sheriff, adrenaline junky, and all around great guy. Everyone loves him. Well, everyone except his new neighbor who he's having parking wars with! City girl and top fashion designer Delaney Scott may be in Glory Junction temporarily but that doesn't mean Sheriff Garner can just boss her around! She's had enough with bossy men, thank you very much. After her divorce dies down and all the legal struggles over her company are settle she plans on rebuilding her image and fashion line and moving back to LA. That is until a truce is sworn and something much more tempting keeps her in Glory Junction.
A fantastic book and a great start to the series. Can't wait for the next book!! Grab a copy of this one. I highly recommend it.
