RELEASE BLITZ                                           SMITTY’S SHERIFF by CARDENO C.


Smitty’s Sheriff, a sexy, heart-warming MM romance by Cardeno C. is now LIVE!


Todd is too flakey. Richard is too stubborn. Together, they’re perfect. A May-December couple get a second chance at love.

Retired soldier Richard Davis wants a stable life in a quiet town with a forever man. Becoming the sheriff of Hope, Arizona, accomplishes two of his three goals, but instead of finding a serious partner, he falls for too-young-to-be-committed and too-flakey-to-be-serious Todd Smitty. Richard won’t find the right man if he’s obsessed with the wrong one, so he walks away from Todd.

It’s lust at first sight when Todd meets his sister’s army friend. He sets his sights on the worldly, strong, stable older man, and the more time he spends with Richard, the harder he falls. But after three years together, Richard cuts off all contact with no explanation.

When a mutual obligation requires Todd to move into Richard’s house, he’s thrilled at the opportunity to earn a second chance. Ignoring Todd from across town was hard enough. Can Richard resist temptation under his own roof?

In general, the Hope Town books follow the same pattern, and are easy reading, pleasurable and great for a little bit of escapism at lunch time. The books themselves aren’t all that long but certainly satisfy the palette; the author gives the reader everything they need to walk away content. Sound writing, a plot that works and some mostly endearing characters – there’s not much more to want for.

For me Smitty’s Sheriff was my least favourite of the three. I enjoyed the characters and their mannerisms for the most part, but felt a little off centre with Todd. Perhaps it was the way he liked to live his life that I couldn’t understand or relate to. Naturally submissive in the way that Todd is, well, it’s not something I totally get. There couldn’t have been two more suited characters however. Richard with his military background was the perfect match to Todd’s fire. Richard kind of reminded me of my Dad with the way he acted with certain things. Condescending would be a word I’d use for Richard at times. I’m not sure I liked him all that much, even towards the end. It’s not a bad thing but a main character needs to be likeable and I think some other readers could well feel that way too. Could be why I found this an awkward read.

I get a feeling that this book is going to be a hit or a miss for many readers, kind of middle of the road read for me. Enjoyable but not without its problems. Although these can be read as standalones, Smitty’s Sheriff (and the two previous books) do have characters from each book and it’s great to catch up with them with each instalment. Recommended, hope you enjoy!

About Cardeno C.

Cardeno C.—CC to friends—is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few awwws into a reader’s day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno’s stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever-after sunset.
