A one-time bad girl comes home to small-town Oregon in the first in a sexy, heartfelt new series from USA TODAY bestselling author Maisey Yates…
Sadie Miller isn't expecting any welcome-home parades on her return to Copper Ridge. Least of all from part-time rancher, full-time lawman Eli Garrett. The straight-laced, impossibly hot deputy sheriff glares at her like she's the same teenage hoodlum who fled town ten years ago. But running from her demons has brought Sadie full circle, ready to make a commitment at last. Not to a man, but to a B and B. On Garrett land. Okay, so her plan has a tiny flaw…
Eli works too hard to let a blonde ball of trouble mess up his town. But keeping an eye on Sadie makes it tough to keep his hands off her. And if she's so wrong for him, why does being with her feel so right?
Instead of having the classic Bad Boy, we now have a former Bad Girl who falls for the .. Sheriff!
The classic romantic roles with the bad boy falling for the good girl are reversed and here we have Sadie, who has been a bad girl before she pulled herself together and went to College and out of town and now comes back to explore her roots. And then there is Eli, the Deputy Officer who runs for Sheriff and who also arrested her back when Sadie was still a Teenager.
Both of them did not see it coming that they are terribly attracted to each other, something both do sooo not want to admit. So when both realize that they can’t fight their attraction and instead of exploring their feelings they decided to have just have sex… Well, you can guess who that works out..
Sooooo much wit, fire and chemistry!!!
I loved the tone of the story so so much! Sadie has so much fire and wit, and I loved listening to her inner voice! Sadie and Eli seem to be the opposites from each other and they truly want to fight their attraction, but it’s just not working and their constant banter and fights were so highly entertaining!
The chemistry was palpable and their struggle to admit they fell for each other was at times even quite hilarious and they sexy times were pretty hot!
As I listed to the audio and I really enjoyed it so much, I already went and go the other books in this series.

Great review! This sounds like a great new twist to the bad guy/good girl trope. I’ll have to add it to my list.
P.S. I love your rating icons!

Ooh, this book sounds fantastic! I always appreciate it when authors reverse typical roles and I’m glad to hear it worked. I absolutely love characters who banter and flirt all the time so I think I’ll really enjoy this one 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing, Danny, and awesome review!
