She’s finally falling for the right man…at the worst possible time.
A part of the Hearts of the South series.
After two back-to-back romantic disappointments, bar owner Angel Henderson isn’t looking for love. In the past month, she’s been passed over twice by men she’d pinned her hopes on, both times in favor of a younger woman. She’s ready to swear off men for life. The only problem? A certain younger man determined to prove he can be her right man.
Sheriff’s deputy Troy Lee Farr is tired of being the department screw-up. The harder he tries to prove himself, the worse it gets. The only thing that’s gone right recently is getting a second chance with Angel. Except she’d rather jam on the brakes than rush into a new relationship. Now he has to work hard to prove his worth as a romantic prospect.
Troy Lee is a patient man, and it isn’t long before Angel is falling into him as hard as he’s fallen for her. Just as Angel begins to think of him as more than a fun date, her past—and Troy’s dangerous reality—threatens the tentative happiness they’ve found in one another.
Reminding them both that security is tenuous…and unconditional love is the biggest challenge of all.
Warning: Cops who talk like cops, explicit older woman-younger man lovin’, and two-boxes-of-tissues emotion.
The warning is RIGHT on. You will need two boxes of tissues for this emotional rollercoster. I want to start this by saying that Troy Lee is my hero and it is too bad there are not more real men like him. Not only is he smart and sexy, but he is caring and gentle, understanding and loving. You can’t help but fall madly in love with him. Then there is Angel. She is a broken beauty who needs the right man to heal her. My heart just breaks for her.
I love how Linda Winfree pulls no punches. Her stories are all about the consequences and I love that she is not afraid to go were she needs to to make her stories so good. And man are there consequenes in Fall Into Me. I can’t say much more because you need to enjoy each and every second of this story. By the end you will know why Troy Lee is my favorite Man of the South.
I can’t say enough how much I loved this story. There is SO much I want to say, but everytime I think of something I’m afraid it will ruin the story for someone. Just know this, if you want a great emotional and SATISFYING read, pick up Fall Into Me and you won’t be disappointed.
Fall Into Me AND Linda Winfree are:
