On the Flap
Jaded and hardened by the ultimate of betrayals, Clearwater Falls Sheriff Gage Dennison is content with his simple, detached life.
With only his loyal dog at his side, Gage has successfully maintained the walls he's built around his life and heart for eight years. From his secluded house at the end of a private road, to the solitude of a small town sheriff, he has no trouble keeping everyone just where he wants them - at a distance.
But Gage soon learns his walls are not as solid as he thought them to be.
Despite all his efforts, and against his will, Gage's new neighbor Delaney Collins threatens to crack his once-impenetrable walls.
Unprepared for the constant verbal sparring, and growing physical attraction to Delaney, Gage is suddenly fighting an internal war he never expected. His brain and reason insist he keep his distance, but his body refuses to listen. Especially when the lure of her warm, willing body soothing his bruised and battered soul is too much to resist.
As the demons of his past are revealed, will Gage crumble under the weight of his fear? Or will he find the strength necessary to tear down his walls and hold on to the only woman that offers him a second chance at love?
This book tore me apart. I have never cried so much for two characters as I did for Gage and Delaney. Their story was about getting past your fears and learning to put your trust in not only yourself but also in another person. W. Ferraro did a great job at writing about the depths of their fears. I liked that their problems were not resolved in a few chapters. It was important that as a reader you experience the process, in which they learned to deal with their fears. It made the moment when they finally got together that much sweeter. Gage was a man filled with anger and fear. Two things he was not willing to admit to but when he did…swoon city. This quote by Gage sums up his journey “I’ll love you every day until you come back to me. And if you don’t, that is what fear has condemned me to. I will never stop loving you, Delaney.” Tell me that didn’t get to you.
I really loved this story I am looking forward to come from Clearwater Falls.

You can always find me with my nose in my Kindle reading a romance novel starring a tough talking, hard loving alpha male and sassy heroine. For the past six years reading has been my addiction. I am always up for a good read and am excited when I get any suggestions. My other loves are working out and spending time with my hubs, family and friends.
