Seducing the Sheriff by Donna Alward
Rating: 3.5 Cups
This was cute, quick, and way too short.
When the bank Cassidy is at is robbed, not only is she shocked and scared, she recognizes the robber from his profile on the dating site, Not My First Rodeo. With no way to tell if the robber recognized her from her profile, Joe, the sexy sheriff she’s had her eye on, decides to hide her away at his home in the mountains. One thing soon leads to another but he’s the sheriff and she’s the woman he’s protecting. She knows people will talk, but are they willing to risk it?
This was fun with a slight element of suspense. Cassidy and Joe both feel something for the other but they both have some baggage from their pasts they have to get over first. It was a little slow in some spots. Still a fun read although this felt more like an intro into a series. I really would have liked more from this one.

This one had to be my favorite from the set. I could not put it down.
When Jules takes it upon herself to help Slade find a wife that’s suitable for life on a ranch, she doesn’t intend to fall into bed with him but that’s exactly what happens. Although she’s made it clear from the start, she’s leaving in a few weeks so sexy fun time is all she’s offering. But, they’re starting to fall for each other and when Slade sees how Jules and his two-year-old daughter interact, he knows he’ll do anything to make her stay, even if she’s intent on running.
Slade and Jules were amazing. They were sizzling but what was so great about them is that they were so open with each other. But they have a lot of hurts from the past they need to work through and she’s afraid she’s won’t be enough for him and his kids. This one did start out with insta-lust but quickly developed into something more. And Jules was so headstrong, I really wanted to shake her and ask her to open her eyes and see what was in front of her, but she finally figured out what she was searching for.

I just couldn’t get into this one. I’m not a fan of romances where the heroine is so much older than the hero.
