A jaded single dad. A woman returning to her small-town roots. Neither was prepared for their paths to collide…

I should have known I was in trouble when I backed my old, beat-up truck into the shiny Range Rover.

The driver looked like a gorgeous fallen angel – one who’d been booted right out of paradise for being a giant prick.

Good thing I’ll never have to see him again.

Except when I show up for my new job to teach a little girl how to ride her horse, I find the same icy blue eyes glaring back at me.

Paisley Dae is completely reckless. She’s also the best trainer in this small town. And Evelyn gets the best.

Protecting the little girl is my one focus.

Only the sassy trainer in her cut-offs and cowgirl boots quickly gets under my skin. Distractions are dangerous, but she soon becomes everything I crave.

One reckless night of giving in, and Caleb and I spiral into a web of passion.

But when I begin to unravel the secrets hiding in this place, I find there is more riding on this job than I thought.

Caleb and Evelyn are worth any sacrifice – only Caleb has to decide what he will sacrifice for me…

This is our introduction to Time River and it was easy to become immersed in this new town and set of interesting characters. 

Paisley Dae has returned to her hometown with a broken heart and battered dreams. But when her friend sets up a job interview with his cousin, there is a glimmer of hope to be able to work with horses again. Unfortunately, she and the new man do not have such a great first meeting or even second. 

Paisley is a country angel with a bit of devil on her shoulder bringing, chaos, sass, and sunshine that clashes with Caleb Greyson's broody, guarded, intimidating, closed-off, and challenging demeanor. 

Caleb has demons and a dark past that he is sure is still coming for him. He is set on vengeance and keeping his niece safe. He has no intention of becoming distracted by a fiery, reckless horsewoman. He thrives on control and she challenges and drives him crazy. He is fueled by rage, anxiety, vengeance, and is incredibly protective. He feels he is without a soul, hope, or love to give. And Paisley is strong-willed and determined to show him the man she sees and wants to stand beside. 

From antagonistic sparring to fiery flirting to uncontrolled desire and unexpected feelings They are a storm of raging lust and uncontrolled emotions. But things are tempered by fear of threats. 

This is an intense, snarky, passionate, small-town,  enemies-to-lovers, rich boss-employee, opposites-attract, new single dad, romance with elements of mystery and romantic suspense. It is about falling in love with each other, but it is also about how these two fall head over heels for a lonely little girl that just wanted to give and receive love again. Evelyn is the center of the world and they would do anything to protect her and just might have to. It also introduces us to a whole new group of friends and family that care and are protective of each other. I am excited about the next story in the series. I am already interested in the couple. 

Paisley Dae is back in her hometown starting over after a few bad decisions had her giving up her dreams. Now that she is back, she is determined to chase her dreams again and live the life she wants. 

Caleb Greyson is in protective mode. There is a little girl dependent on him who he doesn’t know how to handle, and his past actions have him regretting so many decisions that he can’t move forward. Moving to Time River seemed the best way to keep Evelyn safe, but there are still so many questions up in the air. 

I loved these two. Caleb is so out of his element on the ranch that even as he projects a confident, in charge aura, he is completely hands off running the ranch. But the ranch is such a part of Paisley’s dream that the moment she steps foot on the property she feels settled. These two opposites challenge each other in so many different ways - from their experiences with kids, to the ranch, and eventually the bedroom and more. 

There is an element of danger as is often the case in AL Jackson’s books, and I enjoyed watching that aspect develop. The flashback scenes give bits and pieces of Caleb’s past without giving too many hints too quickly. 

As the first in the Time River series, this is a whole new setting with a new group of characters. This small, Colorado town is full of colorful personalities and Paisley’s friends and Caleb’s cousins have a lot of interest building in the background of this book.
