*I was gifted this awesome ARC for an honest review.* I'm not great at reviews so bear with me... This is my second book that I have read of Dawn's and I have to say that I enjoyed it immensely. It was nothing more than a true, good ole fashioned romance thriller that kept me on my toes from the awesome suspense involved, drooling from Creed Caldwells ALPHA ways, and falling in love with all the Caldwell brothers. OMG how do I love the Caldwell family. Not only do I love them, I loved little Cassie, Creed's daughter. Such a sweet little character you couldn't help but love her. Then there is Sloane; strong, independent, brave and takes in Creed like yesterday's dinner. She loves him for his controlling yet protective ways and allows him to love her and protect her. Great storyline, characters, a story that is fast pace and makes you crave for the next Caldwell brother... Looking forward to it!!! Great Job.. So proud of Dawn's hard work. I love this new series!

## GOOD but not great. I guess I'm the odd man out. The thing that bothered me about this book and compelled me to give it less than 5 stars was the insta-love between these two. They meet for 10 min in a diner. The next night the hero has her pressed up against his parents barn rubbing his "member" on her "core" saying: "I want in there. I want in there so effing bad". Her husband beat her for a year, yet she's ok with a stranger rubbing himself all over her after one meeting? Didn't ring true. A bit too cringy for me when she says: "So this is more than sex?" after two days. I really liked the hero (and his daughter), but found the heroine to be weak and presumptious. I did enjoy getting to know all the siblings a little, I just wish h/h's relationship had more of a build up. So it's the middle of the road for me.

This is an awesome story about learning to trust and love again. Also of a beautiful and supportive family that is always there for each other. Bravo Dawn, loving this new series!! Sloan Murphy has just bought a bookstore & building in Serenity Springs, Texas, on a suggestion from her best friend Katy Caldwell who lives in that town. Sloan had gotten out of an abusive relationship and wanted to start afresh. Because of the abusive relationship she has serious trust issues and hasn't dated for 5 years. Creed Caldwell, Katy's brother, is the Sheriff, who also had a bad relationship but has an adorable daughter Cassie, from it. He also has serious trust issues and all his energy is spent on his daughter and family. When Creed and Sloan meet, it's instant attraction and the sexual tension between the two of them is off the charts!! Will these two be able to trust each other so they can have a relationship? You'll have to find out for yourself and you won't be sorry. This story has it all - romance, suspense and action. I just love the Caldwell family and how Mom & Dad are there for all of their children and the closeness of all of them. The story grabs you in from the beginning to the end. Can't wait for the next one!

The story of Sloane and Creed is a must read. Sloane has overcome a lot in her life and a new start is just what she needs. Creed too has had his share of ups and downs. And meeting Sloane is just what he needed. I fell in love with the Caldwell family and can’t wait to read more about them. This book is amazing, moving and awe-inspiring. I could use a lot of other words to describe low awesome I think this book is. I can’t wait for the next book in the Serenity Series. For me Dawn Sullivan has hit another book out of the park. LOVED IT!

Brilliant, Entertaining, Smoldering, Left me on the edge of my seat!  I instantly fell in love with the Caldwell Family. They have it all, the strong protector, the tomboy sister, a thrill seeker, the good soul, the mystery man, the brokenhearted, and lets not forget about their Ma and Pop that hold them all together and keep them straight. The bonds that are proven over and over again, show just how strong and supportive family can be. The love that is undeniable will have you begging for more, and the trials and tribulations this group endures, will make you wish you could  have friends and family like this. It doesn't matter if you love a romance, a western, a suspense, an action, or just a down right good story this book has it all!  Don't miss this amazing start to the Serenity Spring Series! Add it to your TBR and Wishlist now. I can't wait to see where they will go next!

I received this book for an honest review. This book is going in my top ten favorite books ever! Tempting his heart has taken root in my heart and will never ever let go. You come across books every once in a while that takes your breath away and makes you lose track of time. I read this book as slow as I possibly could, i didn’t want it to end. This book was a sweet romance. It had it all anticipation, humor, a strong-willed woman, a hot alpha male (that’s a must!). Creed is one HOT sheriff! He is a single dad that loves his daughter unconditionally. He meets Sloane when he picks up his daughter from the diner. Sloane was sitting with his daughter and talking. She was the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. He knew right then she was screwed. When he found out that she was staying he knew that she was going to be his. He was weary at first because he has had his heart broken before by his daughters mom. When someone broke into her apartment and threatened her he will do whatever it takes to protect her. Quote: Lowering his voice, he growled. “I protect what’s mine. And you, Sloane Murphy are mine. Capturing her mouth with his, Creed thrust his tongue past her lips, swiftly claiming her. Quote: There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you, Sloane. Let me in. I don’t want to control you. I just want to love you. <3 (*sigh* Creed is the sweetest) Sloane came from an abusive relationship. She is wanting to start over and live life to the fullest. So she buys herself a bookstore in Serenity Falls. On her first day there she meets Creed’s daughter they bonded over their favorite books. Creed walks in and he was a gorgeous man she has ever seen. They sure know how to make them in Texas! ;) She is scared to fall, but she knows that Creed will catch her. Creed and Sloane had the greatest love story i have ever read. It’s like you can almost feel the love they have for each other. The relationship between Creed’s daughter and Sloane was so sweet. Their lives revolve around that little girl. Creed’s family was so supportive. (I love his family) Quote: Thank you for accepting me for who I am, for letting me protect you, and for loving not only myself, but my daughter. Quote: I love you, Sloane Murphy. I love you and i want to spend the rest of my life with you. Taking a box out of his jean pocket, Creed opened it and took out a beautiful marquise-shaped diamond ring. Sloane gasped as Creed took hold of her left hand. Sloane will you marry me? Be my wife, be a mother to Cassie and any other children we might adopt in the future? Oh god, Sloane whispered hoarsely as a tear escaped her eye. Oh yes, Creed. Yes, I will marry you! Sloane laughed when she heard an excited squeal from the doorway. She said yes, Daddy! Cassie said as she ran to the bed. “ She’s going to marry us! Dawn Sullivan, You deserve a round of applause. You made this old gal scream from excitement and the anticipation and swoon like a total schoolgirl through the whole entire book. I am pretty sure my family thinks i lost it. lol. I can’t wait to see what else you bring in the future! <3 I rate this book 5+ stars!

Sloane is off to live in a small town where her school friend  Katy resides. Serenity Springs yep the name says it all. She  buys herself a old book store and decides life will be good.   Well life is anything but good.  First she meets the town sheriff  who is non other than Katy's brother Creed. The entire family  is so wonderful and she falls instantly in love with Creed's  daughter Cassie.  Things start happening however that set the town on edge and  Sloane is in danger or is she?  Can Creed save the woman he loves? Fantastically  written story of love, rebuilding and trust. I was  gifted a copy of this book for my honest review. I have read  paranormal books by this author and now I have a new like for  this wickedly good romance. Can't wait to read more in this  series.
