STOP RUNNING . . .AND START FALLING
For Ruby James the Walker Mountain Ranch is her safe haven. Here in Aspen, Colorado, she can finally build a quiet life for herself without fear of her old one rearing its ugly head. Or so Ruby thinks. Any single woman would be happy to indulge a tall, dark, and curious cop-but the closer Ruby gets to him, the closer she gets to losing her newfound peace.
Police officer Sawyer Hawkins is no stranger to secrets. He's ready to leave town for good until a security threat brings him back to Walker Ranch, and Ruby's gorgeous green eyes soon have him second-guessing his decision to go. Her kindness and quiet strength awaken feelings he'd thought long buried, even as her reluctance to talk about her past worries him. The cop in Sawyer only wants the truth-but the man in him wants Ruby in his arms forever . .
Ruby James is an enigma to the people of Walker Mountain Ranch, but Ruby has an amazing heart and gives everything to help the foster children who come for a respite. And Ruby is content with hiding who she really is, in order to be free of her violent past. But when Police Officer Sawyer Hawkins moves in to the ranch and starts trying to be friend with Ruby, Ruby freaks out and wants to flee…
Sawyer Hawkins is finally getting on with his life after his wife having a miscarriage and then losing his wife to one of his so called friends. So Sawyer is leaving Aspen Colorado for the bright lights and mean streets of Denver and a well deserved fresh start. But when thefts start happening at the Walker Ranch, he steps in to help his family. But it's not just the thefts that catch his eye, but the mysterious Ruby! But not in a police business way, but in a heart pounding gotta have it kinda way and even though Sawyer is leaving, he doesn't want to let go…
So I am going to leave it there as I really don't want to spoil this book. Now I have not read any of the Heart of the Rockies series books, but honestly that doesn't matter! There was no confusion on the characters or the plot. The writing was smooth and enjoyable, despite the heartbreaking storyline and I felt that it was paced nicely, without any fluff or long and drawn out ridiculousness. The characters were likable and the storyline was sweet, with balancing the awful reality of domestic violence.
I really enjoyed reading More Than A Feeling and that is why I give it 4 stars!
