Struggling to make ends meet after a messy divorce, Sadie Harris is at the end of her tether. Her waitressing gig isn’t enough to pay the bills let alone secure primary custody of her son, Jayden, a battle she refuses to lose. Desperate, she accepts a position assisting Dawson Reed the same Dawson Reed who recently stood trial for the murder of his adoptive parents. Joining him at his isolated farm seems risky, but Sadie is out of options.
Dawson has given small town Silver Springs plenty of reasons to be wary, but he’s innocent of the charges against him. He wants to leave his painful past behind and fix up the family farm so he can finally bring his dependent sister home where she belongs.
As Sadie and Dawson’s professional relationship grows into something undeniably personal, Sadie realizes there’s more to Dawson than the bad boy everyone else sees. He has a good heart, one that might even be worth fighting for.
I think I may have liked No One But You even more than Finding Our Forever. If I had to put my finger on the reason, I’d have to say it was Dawson. He lost everything when he was accused of his adoptive parents’ murder – including his home town.
All Dawson really wants is to be left alone to bring his family’s farm back to life so he can provide a home for his sister. All Sadie wants is to keep her son safe, happy and away from his emotionally abusive father. Alone, the didn’t stand a chance, but together…
I really liked the connection between Sadie and Dawson. Having the town outcast, who most everyone in town believed still belonged behind bars, fall for the ex of an overly possessive small town policeman who was not only an arrogant bully, but in total denial about the end of his marriage wasn’t the easy way to go, but it definitely kept the pages turning.
Even though this is the second book in Brenda Novak’s Silver Springs series, you won’t be lost if you haven’t read Finding Our Forever. Now that I’ve started though, I won’t be able to stop. Until You Loved me is next and it’s already on my TBR list. 😉
