More Than a Feeling
Heart of the Rockies #3
By: Sara Richardson
Releasing March 29, 2016
Forever
In More Than a Feeling (Heart of the Rockies #3) by Sara Richardson, after what her ex put her through, Ruby James needed to find a place that made her feel safe, and it seems she's finally found that place in Aspen, Colorado. Working for the Walkers is the best thing to happen to her, but when police officer Sawyer Hawkins starts asking personal questions, she doesn't know what to do. Because if anyone found out she was on the run, it could put them in danger and she's not about to let anyone get hurt.
 
When he's asked to look into some thefts that have been happening at the Walker Mountain Ranch, for some reason -- at first -- Sawyer Hawkins thinks Ruby may be responsible. No one knows anything about her, and she has the access around the Ranch just as much or even more than the Ranch's other employees. However, the more Sawyer gets to know her, the more he begins to see how wrong he is, and when he learns about her past, he'll do anything to keep her safe.
 
Having absolutely loved the first two books of this series, I couldn't wait to read Sawyer and Ruby's story. Because they're two amazing characters that made this book from start to finish highly entertaining and fast-paced. All due to their back stories, the investigation into the thefts happening at the ranch and the nice blend of playful and intense dialogue.
 
I really liked the main as well as the secondary characters in this book. There were some really good light-hearted moments, as Sawyer strives to get past the walls Ruby has built to protect herself from any future hurt. The heroine is strong, brave, independent, stubborn and tenacious. She's determined for everyone not to know what happened to her with her ex, yet somehow, Sawyer's kindness and persistence begin to wear her down. Besides, she needs to open up to someone, and who better than a cop. Even if she has every reason to be weary of a man in uniform, someone that's supposed to uphold the law and not break it. 
 
While Sawyer, he's loyal, trustworthy, intuitive and a good cop that will do anything to protect the innocent and punish the guilty. Truly, he's good for Ruby. She needs someone she can trust, if she's to ever overcome her past and realize that she can finally have a relationship again. To finally get justice for herself and anyone else her ex has hurt.
 
Both Ruby and Sawyer aren't looking for a relationship since they've either been hurt physically or emotionally in their previous ones. Yet, their feelings are so strong that there's no denying them. Until eventually, their intense chemistry -- which is there from the beginning -- spills over onto the pages in nicely-detailed sex scenes.

Overall, Ms. Richardson has written another incredible story and I can't wait to read more of this author's work in the future. The author wrapped this story up nicely with the way Ruby finally faces her past, and then how she honors someone that Sawyer loved. I would recommend More than a Feeling by Sara Richardson, if you enjoy a hero and heroine that need each other to heal from the hurts of their pasts.   

OVERALL RATING:
 
    

BLURB:
"Charming, witty, and fun. There's no better read. I enjoyed every word!" --- Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author on No Better Man
 
STOP RUNNING . . .AND START FALLING
 
For Ruby James the Walker Mountain Ranch is her safe haven. Here in Aspen, Colorado, she can finally build a quiet life for herself without fear of her old one rearing its ugly head. Or so Ruby thinks. Any single woman would be happy to indulge a tall, dark, and curious cop-but the closer Ruby gets to him, the closer she gets to losing her newfound peace.
 
Police officer Sawyer Hawkins is no stranger to secrets. He's ready to leave town for good until a security threat brings him back to Walker Ranch, and Ruby's gorgeous green eyes soon have him second-guessing his decision to go. Her kindness and quiet strength awaken feelings he'd thought long buried, even as her reluctance to talk about her past worries him. The cop in Sawyer only wants the truth-but the man in him wants Ruby in his arms forever . . .

“Sawyer…” There was so much she couldn’t tell him. So many reasons she should ask him to leave, to leave her alone. But the ache tightening inside of her would never go away if she didn’t touch him, if she didn’t feel the generous hunger of his lips against hers, the thrilling sensation of his hands reading every curve of her body. So instead of saying anything, instead of casting him out of her life, she scooted to her knees so she could reach his lips, first touching them lightly with her fingers. “You’re a good man, Sawyer Hawkins,” she whispered. And though she knew he couldn’t have her forever, she could give herself to him now. He could have her for this one moment.
 
His gaze fused with hers, the mesmerizing blue of his eyes smoldering like the center of a flame. His large hands settled on her hips and tugged them until she straddled him.
The swing pitched forward and she wrapped her arms around his neck to keep from losing her balance.
“This isn’t why I came here,” he informed her hoarsely.
“That’s disappointing,” she breathed against his neck. The stubble made her lips tingle.
Sawyer sighed in a helplessly delicious way and took her chin in his hand, bringing her lips to meet his, brushing them lightly in teasing preview.
Oh, lordy, lordy, lordy…the man could kiss.
He pulled back to look at her, but what good was that? She wanted to feel him against her, solid and safe and warm. So she wrapped her legs all the way around his waist cinching them tighter until the hard bulge of his desire for her pulsed between her legs. It was blinding the way he made her lungs pound, the way he sent her dizzy heart twirling in circles. His touch brought her somewhere else, made her feel like someone else. Someone whole and unbreakable. The person she’d always wanted to be.
