Meanwhile, Sheriff Ben O'Keefe can’t seem to get Katie’s attention. Everyone in town knows he has had a longstanding crush on her. But to Katie, Ben is just Ben. When mysterious events turn Katie to him for help, is it the chance Ben has been waiting for?

Katie Addison is a determined young woman, a hometown girl who has opened her ranch to abused woman and injured horses. She is fighting an uphill battle when it comes to finanically paying the bills, but determined to keep her home open for women who need help. Warrent Tate was a nerd in high school when Katie knew him, but has returned home as a successful business man who is "done" with women! (Katie would like to help him change his mind about that.) Sheriff Ben O'Keefe has never been able to get Katie to take him seriously, ever since he didn't show up to take her to her prom years ago. Katie has just taken in a high profile woman who is being abused and now mysterious things are starting to happen and someone seems out to get Katie and close down her home. Katie finds herself perplexed about who she can lean on for help, Warren or Ben??I enjoyed reading this story. I really liked the way the women at Katie's home interacted and how they stood together in helping each other out. I liked the humorous way Ben and Katie interacted with each other, and enjoyed reading about Katie's obsession with her lattes. This was a heartwarming story filled with mystery, some danger and a complicated romance. The author had me guessing and wondering just who would end up catching Katie's heart. I must say the one who did, gets a "high five" from me for how he goes about doing it! Have fun reading this story and seeing how it ends!
Katie is really into running her home for women who are running from abusive partners, but financial problems could force her to shut the home down. She turns to her neighbor Warren for help, thinkiing that with his financial smarts he can help her develop a budget and stick to it. Not to mention that Katie is very attracted to Warren, despite his sometimes rough manner. She is grateful for his nearness when several incidents make her think that her frecent intake of a high profile client may have put her in danger, but is is really Warren or her forever buddy (who happens to be the local sherriff) who will come to her rescue?This was a sold romance with likeable characters, the plot was somewhat predictable but it was satisfying to see the main character end up with the right guy in the end.
Lorls stories are so good and l love to laugh l hope to read them all
Now and Always is a very easy read. Most parts flow smoothly, but it is a little predictable. I was half way through when I knew how it would end. I loved most of the characters, especially Ben. Very fun loving! Warren wasn't quite as believable as he should have been. It was hard to understand how a man can hate women so much just because he had one bad relationship! Overall, it's a good book.
