When love's on the line, the brave jump in with both feet... Small town cop Clint Rivera can’t catch a break. His ex of two weeks is suddenly getting married, his dogs tore up his furniture, he’s getting evicted, and he’s out of beer. When he decides to solve his alcohol shortage by going to his ex’s engagement party, Clint winds up too drunk to drive himself home. Enter gorgeous deputy-mayor Hawk Black, the man who constantly shows up unexpectedly and sends Clint’s body and mind into a tailspin with nothing but his whiskey voice and blue eyes. After months of patience, Hawk can finally seduce the man he’s been craving. Clint’s day might not have started out well, but Hawk’s going to make sure it ends with a bang, preferably in bed. He’ll show Clint some rewards are worth the risk. With love on the line, Clint will need to decide if he can open his heart, tear down his shields, and jump in with both feet.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
I won this book in a giveaway, and by golly what a fabulous prize! I was suffering from a double book hangover, and this delicious little book proved to be the perfect cure. Its short, only about 45 minutes reading time for me, but what a beautiful way to spend 45 minutes! Clint is having a bad day, Hawk comes along to his rescue but Hawk had had his eye on Clint for months.It was only a matter of time that he got his hands on his cop. A proper case of instant love here, and I don't care that it comes in 24 hours. I don't care that its single person POV. I don't even care its so short. It was delicious, beautiful, hot and sexy and lots and lots of other words that just wouldn't do it justice. It has love, 2 sexy males. It has two not-so-sexy dogs who have a heart of gold, in a trash-your-living-room kinda way, but who behave like that should once they get to Hawk's house. OH I could rant all day. But I'm not gonna. I will say these four words though. READ THE DAMN BOOK 5 shiny stars. Thank you, CC for two things. 1. My beautiful, delicious sexy additoin to your book shelf and 2. Curing my hangover. Life is good, again. **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Cardeno C. - CC to friends - is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few "awwws" into a reader's day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno's stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever- after sunset. Cardeno's Home, Family, and Mates series have received awards from Love Romances and More Golden Roses, Rainbow Awards, the Goodreads M/M Romance Group, and various reviewers. But even more special to CC are heartfelt reactions from readers, like, "You bring joy and love and make it part of the every day."
