I had no idea when Sadie Cole caught my eye, that she would also steal my heart. My daughter’s new dance teacher with her jet black hair and haunting blue eyes intrigued me. Her tight outfits and bare skin taunted me. Most importantly, she was amazing with my daughter.
But Sadie’s reputation proceeded her… and I couldn’t afford any entanglements that would cost me custody of my daughter.
The more I spent time with her the more I realized the rumors were wrong— the town was wrong. I wanted to be the man she could count on. When what’s best for my daughter and what’s right for Sadie are in direct conflict, I hope I make the right choice.
I left my hometown right after high school to escape a scandal. Returning home, seeing the way they all still looked at me, I realized coming back was a mistake. Until sexy, single dad, Tanner Green glanced my way.
Those blue eyes saw too much, they looked right through me in search of the truth.
His kind heart and stacked body tempted me to stay and face the rumors. But I’ve never let anyone get that close—especially a cop, with the sweetest daughter in the world, because my secrets ruined everything and everyone.
With him by my side things could be different… his love was worth taking the chance.
Lea Coll worked as a trial attorney for over ten years. Now she stays home with her three children, plotting stories while fetching snacks and running them back and forth to activities. She enjoys the freedom of writing romance after years of legal writing.
She grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania and currently resides in Maryland with her family.
What an amazing story about not letting your past define you. Sadie could have hide behind her past. She could have let if dictate who she was and how she lived her life, but she didn’t. At every turn I loved Sadie more and more. I loved how strong she was. I loved how hard she fought to move on from her past. And Tanner, that man was meant for her. These two had amazing chemistry. At first, Tanner had made an assumption, much like many had where Sadie was concerned, but as time went by, he quickly learned that assumptions were not fact and in this case, way off base.
I loved the raw honesty of this story. I loved the chemistry. I loved watching two navigate the world together. This is a story of love, forgiveness, romance, and how secrets have a way of coming out. I loved every second of this sweet, swoon-worthy, small-town story. I can’t want to see what Lea Coll has for us in the future.
