Review: Each book in the Cade Creek Series collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Every once in a while you find an author that can give you a story that you could lose yourself into, and Stormy is that author for me. The world she creates are unique, enticing and downright drool worthy. I love how the characters not only stand up for those they love but they don’t back down when someone is in trouble. They have a serious tone to them but there is just a hint of humor to make them perfect for me.
Aldrin has finally moved to Cade Creek. He even has a job at the local diner and loving it. He has his eye on one sexy man who comes in. However Trudy has already warned him that Jonah is not an easy person. He is in fact very grumpy and not very nice to people. However that doesn’t stop Aldrin from going after the man and making him smile.
Jonah’s grandfather founded Cade Creek and growing up he was not a happy camper. He gave his family hell and even joined the military to get away. Then tragedy struck and it was his stubborn father that had told him to come home, the first time. Then something even worse happened, he was injured while at war, and on the same week he lost his entire family to a car accident. He broke down and hid out on his mountain top. His therapist suggested going to a few places at least once a week and one of his favorites was going to have Sunday dinner at the diner. He just had not expected to find a man that might make him want to live again. Too bad someone out there wanted them dead.
This author’s stories not only draw you in but keeps you there. She gives you hot sex, lots of love and tenderness, mixed in with excitement, adventure and lots of dangerous situations
The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. To me there is nothing better than a good romance.
I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series that you can’t put down and have to read more than once. It is the perfect story for me and gave me all that I needed. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story. I had a blast reading it and I can’t wait to read the next story. When Stormy puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up.
I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.
