Hard Pressed (Talbott’s Cove) (English Edition) Format Kindle
I'm leaving you this note because I know you're very busy and I don't want to waste the town sheriff's time. Lord knows I've already wasted enough of it.
Thank you for taking me home last night and...everything else. I made you a basket of wild blueberry muffins for your trouble. That seemed like the appropriate baked good for getting naked in your living room.
I wasn't myself last night. I didn't mean to kiss you or fondle your backside or ask all those intimate questions. Thank you for pretending to enjoy it.
It was very noble of you to sleep on the couch while I was starfished on your bed. I couldn't help but notice it's quite large. The bed, that is. I swear, I didn't notice anything else when I let myself out this morning.
As you know, Talbott's Cove is a ridiculously small town and there's no chance we can avoid each other. Not that I'd want to avoid you, of course, but I'm not sure I can look at you without thinking of the forty different ways I made a fool of myself.
Instead of avoidance, let's try to be friends. We'll forget all about last night…if that's what you want.
Please burn this note after you read it.
p.s. I whipped up some cinnamon buns, too. Please enjoy them. I'm not sure why, but I couldn't get buns out of my mind today.
CW: toxic family system, briefly portrayed on-page; references to ongoing stalking experienced by side characters; side character mentions of a parent with dementia; brief mention of emotionally overwhelming experiences in law enforcement

À propos de l'auteur

Annette is a book store owner, liked by all except her bitchy sisters, and doesn't realise her own appeal.
Jackson is the new sheriff who is settling in nicely to his new town and can't take his eyes off Annette but has never had an opening.
When Annette is jerked out of her fantasy land featuring an unattainable guy (because he's gay and happily in a relationship!) she's thrust into the path of the sexy sheriff who is all too willing to catch her.
There was a lot of flirty back and forth with this pair and lots of sex and sweetness.
Jackson was the perfect catch.
He knew what he wanted and when he got his chance he held on with both hands despite Annette's reluctance to accept all that he was offering. He was patient, kind and understanding. He was protective and hot and good-natured. Everyone should have a Jackson in their lives!
Annette was smart, bookish, sweet and totally unprepared for someone to love her. Her family had really done a number on her and although she was frustrating at times it was really hard to dislike her. I loved seeing the sparks fly between them.
It was a quick, light and lovely summery read... But be warned! Have baked goods to hand while reading this novel as descriptions of Annette's baking (and she bakes a lot) will have you craving the sweet stuff!
Whilst instalove isn't my favourite, there was just something about Jackson that couldn't help me rooting for him to get what he wanted, and that was Annette. He'll never top Will at the top of the spot for me, but he's only a few rungs below on the ladder.
I've enjoyed visiting Talbot's Cove and I hope we come back to get some happy for Brooke.
Annette is broken hearted at discovering the man she'd crushed on for years is gay.
The new sheriff in town, Jackson, has a "thing" for her.
And then there's her bestie, Brooke.
These are the three main characters in this book and I loved them all.
I had moments of laugh out loud laughter at some of the crazy things that happened. Annette is a total wreck at times but she has a heart of gold. Brooke is the bestie that every woman needs to give her confidence and remind her what a great person she really is! And Jackson? He's just sex on legs! He knows he's on show as the new sheriff and can't afford to have a bad reputation if things go wrong. He and Annette were wonderful. Full of warmth and humour. And hotness. Mustn't forget to mention the hotness!!!
Hurry up with the next one, m’dear.
