Title: Falling for the Ranger - Men of Marietta Book 4 Author: Kaylie Newell Publisher: Tule Publishing Published: 4-11-2017 Pages: 165 Genre: Romance Sub-Genre: Westerns; Contemporary Fiction ISBN: 9781946772915 ASIN: B01MURHP63 Reviewed For NetGalley and Tule Publishing Reviewer: DelAnne Rating: 4.25 Stars When Todd Harris makes the move from the mean streets of Chicago to the sleepy roads of Marietta, Montana, it’s not just his career that’s changing… it’s his entire life. Going from police officer to forest ranger isn’t too much of a stretch, but getting used to how things work in a small town is. As he settles in, Todd realizes he loves the slower pace of the countryside, but then… an Olympic gold medalist comes to town and shatters his hard fought peace. But the town’s new forest ranger doesn’t like attention and he sure as hell isn’t looking for any kind of relationship with someone who does. When Molly Cordero gets lost in the woods though and Todd is the one who saves her, the spark he’s been trying to ignore smolders and ignites. It's then that he realizes there’s a lot more to Molly than ambition and public adulation. When Todd signs up for the Men of Marietta calendar shoot to raise money for Harry's House, a place for children to commemorate a fallen firefighter, Molly realizes the kind of man he is. With the shoot wrapping up, she faces a painful decision–return to her old life, or give her new life with Todd a fighting chance. Todd Harris, the lead male is of course gorgeous after all he had been selected as one of the firefighters in The Men of Marietta calendar. Molly Cordero, an Olympic gold medalist finds the sparks that fly with Todd after he rescues her after becoming lost in the woods. All the romantic tension is there. Two dynamic characters with strong personalities clash over their desired futures. Choices will need to be made together or apart the future lays uncertain. Well written, this is the fourth in the series, but can be read as a stand alone story with little difficulty. It was a fast short read. I look forward to seeing where the next book will take us. My rating of "Falling For The Ranger" is 4.25 out of 5 stars.

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. Molly comes to Marietta to be with her cousin, to help her get back on her feet, and feel better about herself, due to a disastrous time for her. She meets Todd a forest ranger, who moved to Montana to help his marriage and get away from the city, but instead of helping, his marriage disolved. I was a little shocked because Marrietta's people are normally nice or they tend do give you a chance, yet they seemed to judge Molly, and feel that she has an agenda, and even though Todd falls in love with her, he also judged her. Luckily he realized his mistake before she left. Glad that Bug was included, he helped story.

Falling for the Ranger (Men of Marietta Book 5) by Kaylie Newell This is Ranger Todd Harris and Olympic gold medalist Molly Cordero's story. Molly is hiding out in Marietta trying to decide what she wants to do with her life. Todd loves the slower pace of life in Marietta. He is divorced and lives with the scars from it. Todd and Molly butt heads when they first meet. Things begin to change after Todd rescues her after getting lost on a hike. I loved the banter between Todd and Molly. Will they allow the hurts in their past to prevent them from taking a chance at love? Will Molly be willing to stay in Marietta? This is a sweet and sensual romance. I enjoyed their story. FYI, contains mature content.  I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Todd Harris made the move from a big city cop in Chicago to a forest ranger in Marietta, Montana. A slower pace of life is what he was looking for. But, when Olympic gold medalist Molly Cordero comes to town, life gets shook up a bit more than Todd expected. When Todd signs up for the Men of Marietta Calendar, it opens Molly’s eyes to what a great guy Todd really is. After their rocky start, they learn to let down their guard and allow themselves to trust in love again. I like reading about flawed characters and how they overcome their issues and find love again. I also enjoyed the banter between Molly and Todd. It made it a fun book to read. The descriptions really brought the story to life and you can’t go wrong with a cute dog in the story either.

Yet another great story in this series. Molly is an olympic athlete who has fallen from grace. Todd is a forest ranger who moved to Montana to get away from being a cop in Chicago. They were both such wonderful and flawed characters. Todd has trust issues, Molly has a lot of issues and is hiding out. My favorite character may have been Bug, Todd's dog. I loved reading about Bug's antics. I loved how much the characters grew and learned about each other and themselves throughout the story.

149 pages. This was the first book I've read from this author and it could have been so much more. I liked the story line but it was slow and boring in some places making hard to stay interested and then it ended verry abruptly.

Molly Cordero had been a media darling after she won gold in the Olympics. Then she made bad choices and fell out of favor. Now hounded by the paparazzi, she comes to Marietta to get away. Todd Harris is a ranger. He came here from Chicago to find a different lifestyle. He's happy to be by himself until he meets Molly. I enjoyed their interactions. They may butt heads but they had chemistry. I wanted them to be able to put the past behind them and find love. It was sweet when Molly made herself vulnerable and told Todd her story. I always enjoy visiting Marietta. This small town is perfect for romance. The characters are interesting and charismatic. The story is an emotional journey. I'm enjoying the Men of Marietta series. I received a copy of this book which I voluntarily read. My comments are my honest opinions.

Loved this story of two lost souls both with heartbreak in their lives. Todd, is a forest ranger from Chicago. where he was a police officer looking for a better life with his wife to raise their family. His wife decided this was not the place for her though. Molly, an ex Olympic diver, who has decided this was not the life for her, visits her cousin in Marietta to figure out what she wants in life. While Molly is hiking she meets up with Todd and his dog, Bug. They are opposites but soon find there is a mutual attraction between the two. The only problem, Molly is only there for a short time. Loved this installment in the Men of Marietta. Great banter between Molly and Todd. Oh, and Bug, of so cute. Plenty of twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages. This is my first book by Kaylie, and will not be my last, love her story telling.

Rating 3.5/5 This is a good addition to the enthralling romances in the ‘Men of Marietta’ series. Each story features one of the men who are to be featured on a calendar to help raise funds for Harry’s House, an after school safe haven for children being developed to commemorate a popular firefighter who was tragically killed in a hit-and-run incident whilst trying to help an elderly couple. All of the men involved are first responders and many, like Todd, aren’t that keen on being photographed! Todd Harris moved from duty as a police officer in Chicago to Marietta, becoming a forest ranger. He’s much happier with the change of pace and lifestyle even though his wife left and divorced him. Now he’s settling in well - or he was until he discovered Molly Cordero out hiking. Molly is staying with her cousin whilst she re-thinks her life and avoids the paparazzi. She was a golden girl, a much publicised Olympic diver who has slipped from grace, taken a serious dive into the depths and isn’t sure what she’ll do when she re-surfaces. She has a lot of thinking to do and the hunky Ranger is just going to complicate things! Their attraction is mutual though both resist because of their back stories. Their journey to their HEA involves much drama, turmoil and even a life-saving dive off a cliff! This is a good addition to the series, though there is less mention of the calendar and the other people involved in it than in any of the other stories so far. The author brings both main characters to life, warts and all! The couple seem an unlikely pairing and I really disliked the heroine at times as she seemed very self-centred, egotistical and combative for much of the story. In contrast, Todd is an endearing gentleman in the true sense of the word, one who is struggling to trust after his wife's departure but perhaps only someone like him could help ground Molly. The setting description as superb and the town is also brought to life in the vivid writing. It is another heartwarming story in this brilliant series. I requested and was given a copy of this book via NetGalley. This is my honest opinion after reading the story.

I loved Falling for the Ranger by Kaylie Newell, the fourth book in the Men of Marietta series. This story has two lost souls who meet and find an attraction that surprises both of them. Neither is sure that this is what they want or that it is the solution to the problems in their lives. I liked the manner in which the struggle Todd had with posing for the calendar was described in addition to the way he decided that he had to do it, for Harry. Todd also needed to stop judging all women based on the way his ex-wife treated him. Molly had so much more to deal with considering her out of control life, anger with the world, what she wanted to do with the rest of her life and how to earn a living. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

3 - "I’m not America’s sweetheart anymore." Stars. The Men of Marietta series rolls onto the fourth book, Todd Harris is up next in Falling for the Ranger. I have devoured this series so far, in that I read each of the previous three books in one sitting they were that good. Unfortunately, I knew it wasn’t going to be the same with Todd and Molly’s book in that it has taken me twice as long to read as its predecessors. Sadly, fell a lot short in relation to those stories, and in almost every area. "You’re not my type..." Something was off with this couple, I felt virtually no connection between them throughout the whole book, their back stories were sketchy and the author offered little depth or development in that regard. Which in turn made it difficult to find much to like about either of them especially when Todd’s fall-back was judgey aloofness, and Molly’s was sarcasm and to cut-and-run, there was no real empathy felt for anything they went through because of it. "Would you do it all over again?" I still think this series in general is one of the strongest I have read from Tule Publishing in a long time, but the whole purpose of the Men of Marietta series has been giving stories to the men involved in the production of the First Responders calendar to aid the renovations to Harry’s House and that was very much an afterthought in this book, with Todd’s photo-shoot being dealt with and cleared away in a couple of paragraphs, yes it was sort of responsible for the big falling out between our pair, but to be honest I think you could have used anything and it would have worked, because it was pretty obvious that the issue of trust was going to be the tipping point for these two right from the beginning. Author new-to-me, Patricia W. Fischer is up next with the final book of the series Burning with Desire I have been eager for Kyle Cavasos’ book since book two, so I am hoping the author gives him a story that he deserves.
