WARNING: Author believes in soul mates and insta-love, proceed with caution if you're not a romantic at heart.
Love's greatest cure is salvation of one’s soul.
Shane Sherman has a problem. Well, two, actually. One has auburn hair and pale-green eyes, and the other? . . . Is a secret. One he doesn't want to talk about. But all that changes when Sage comes to town.
Sage Sloan is being stalked. So she runs to Trails End and the bravest man her sister said she'd ever met. Sergeant Shane Sherman.
Sparks fly, tempers flare, and bears misbehave as Shane and Sage find a way to coexist in Trails End. That is, until a killer comes to call. Then all bets are off. Shane isn't about to lose his saving grace.
5 Stars! CP Smith gives me so many reasons to read!!
Shane Sherman…where to begin! He’s passionate, controlling, stubborn, protective, and a thoroughly ALL ALPHA MAN!!! If you’re in trouble, he’s the one that you want protecting you, because if it means him dying to make you safe he’s prepared to meet his maker!!!!
Unfortunately, he fails to see all the qualities that make him a good friend, protector, and partner, he sees failure when he looks in the mirror. He remembers that one event in his past that prevents him from seeing the wonderful and honorable man he is.
When Sage shows up out of the blue, she knocks him for a loop with her long auburn hair and pale green eyes. Sage comes to Trails End to ask for help but all Shane can see is the young girl that he failed. Her sister.
Sage Sloan is being stalked, so she runs the brave man her sister admired so much, Sgt. Shane Sherman. One look at Sage and he knows that he can’t go there, but that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t think of it…..often. When he learns of her troubles, he’s willing to do all he can to keep her safe and (attempt) to keep his distance. However, hilarious Maxine (Maxine-isms are the best!!!) has no intention of letting Sage slip through Shane’s fingers, Maxine loves Shane like a son and knows that Sage will be the woman to mend what’s broken in Shane. Shane’s salvation.
Eventually, Sage’s stalker catches up to her in Trails End, and when the threat gets way to close for comfort it brings Shane to his senses and has him staking his claim on Sage in the most delicious way!!!!
“I’m going to breath you in,” he whispers in my ear, “and be your anchor, your protector. I’m gonna fold myself around you so you’re never alone.”
We get a second storyline with Maxine and Gregor McGregor. Maxine and Gregor have known each other for many, many years and Gregor has loved Maxine for just as many. We see the longing these two have for one another and when tragedy strikes, Gregor finally stakes his claim!!!
I loved that Max, Mia, Jack, and Jenn are included in the storyline, not to mention FBI Agent Dane Parker from Property Of!! C.P. Smith finishes out the Reason Series with Shane and Sage’s book and I’m completely and totally satisfied, I’m sad it’s over, but I can’t wait to see what we get next from this amazing author.
