It also get her arrested by her childhood crush and the current sheriff, Brody Carlton. Now she has sworn off love though before her bad ending her chance meeting and arrest would have had her planning a wedding. She just wishes she could stop fantasying about  Brody. Maybe this time she might be able to have her happily ever after. Is it possible that she has finally found the right man after all?

All of Me
Salvation, Colorado

Jillian Samuels is dealing with a betrayal that has left her with the wish of being able to have a fresh start. With a newly inherited home in Salvation, Colorado that just might be possible. It has a great mountain view a fireplace for those cold nights and one unexpected amenity that she never expected, a gorgeous man that is extremely infuriating and already living there.

Tucker “Tuck” Manning isn’t about to give up his home without fighting for it first. Now Jillian and Tuck have to untangle the mess of who actually owns the home and until they are able to do that they become unlikely roommates. As they go through the days and nights they find they have a lot more in common than just the house. They also find that sometimes you find what you need most in the most unlikely of places.

While this is a sizeable book it is actually two novels in one. The stories are warm hearted and are sure to please the romantics at heart. They are actually part of a four book series but can be read as stand alones.  The characters are very well written and readers will enjoy being taken on the journeys as each couple finds their way to their happily ever after. They are both sweet stories that will have readers falling in love with the towns and characters and hating to leave the areas. It will also have readers wishing to find places in real life like these small towns. These two are ones to definitely take the time to read and savor.

I give this one 5 red roses
