And I'm really happy I jumped in. It was very similar to everything I love about Aurora Rose Reynolds books. It had the overly protective "babe" growling alpha. It had the law enforcement hero. The danger and drama that makes the story interesting. And a heroine who isn't a doormat.
Ashley and Tyler were great together from the first meeting. And I really loved the secondary characters and the small town setting. The story kept my interest and the chemistry was great. Tyler had the dirty talking down to an art form. And he delivered everything he promised.
I can't wait to see where this series is going after such a solid introduction.
Here we have a slow burning romance, with some twists and suspense as well as some really hot moments and wonderful characters. The heat between Ashley and Tyler is out of this world and totally warms your heart! There are other secondary characters who are really sweet and help to carry the story. It will be interesting to see if there will be stories about them in this series.
Ella Fox has a way of telling a story that just weaves around you. It’s fast flowing with a little bit of drama mixed in to keep you engaged. If you like small time romances with a lot of heat, then this one is for you!
ARC received for a fair and honest review.
After being caught in the middle of a dangerous situation Ashley no longer feeling safe living in LA decides to move to the small seaside town of Charlotte's Cove where she spent her summers when she was a growing up.
With the help of her family friend and neighbour she gets a job working at the local police station where she meets Tyler the chief of police and her new boss.
Sparks fly from the very first meeting and while everything seems to be going in a good direction a very unpleasant blast from Ashley's past threatens the new life she is trying to build for herself
Ashley was a tough cookie, kind, sweet and beautiful inside and out while Tyler was intense, sexy, caring, protective and filthy in the best possible way.
Ashley and Tyler's story was sweet, sexy, incredibly steamy, with some drama, a dash of suspense and danger along the way. Their attraction was instant and their chemistry was off the charts. The progression of their relationship was rather fast but so full of passion and steam that I didn't mind it one single bit. The story was fast paced and I found myself not wanting to put it down.
As much as I loved Ashley and Tyler what really solidified the 5 star rating for me where all the side character's of this charming seaside smalltown. From the old couple living next door to Ashley to the group of friends and coworkers of Tyler's to Boo the adorable Husky owned by Tyler. I loved every single one of them and the town and can't wait to read more from stories set in Charlotte's Cove.
Ashley Colton is extremely unhappy in her job and when push comes to shove, literally, she decides a change is in order. She moves to Charlotte’s Cove and accepts a position as office manager at the local police station where she meets the chief, Tyler Jameson.
Tyler is one hunky, handsome fellow with a caring and loyal nature. Ashley is also caring, loyal and sweet but when it’s needed she can stand up for herself, I totally loved that side of her personality coming out. Together they have an intense chemistry and the passion between them is combustible. The other main characters are fascinating and I look forward to reading their stories too. Millie deserves a special mention as she is a wonderful character, with her naval wine coolers.
Throughout the story there is a hefty dose of humour, especially Ashley and Millie who is a crack up. From fun banter between characters to humorous expressions like this one- ‘...jeans that are tight but not “oh my God, why is that girl showing us her business?” tight...’ And..’This revelation is going over like a f*rt in church.’ 😂 The wonderful humour is one reason why I gave it an extra half a star.
Overall this is fast paced mainly because of the great descriptions and solid storyline. A good dose of suspense rounds things out very nicely too and another reason for the extra half a star. This is the first book by this author that I have had the pleasure to read but it most certainly won’t be the last.

I am really excited about getting book 2.
Leaving big city life behind for good, Ashlyn moves to Charlotte's Cove, the small, peaceful seaside town she's spent every summer since childhood. In hopes of a fresh start, she accepts the position as the new receptionist at the police station. The moment she meets the new chief, Tyler Jameson, the sparks fly. Too bad this fine, sexy specimen is her new boss. Despite the instant chemistry between them, both are hesitant to act on it at the beginning. Just as Tyler decides to make a move, a woman from his past appears, making Ashley retreat completely. Deep down Tyler knows that there's only one woman for him and that giving her up is no option. Will the chief be able to win Ashley's heart? Or will the evil woman from his past destroy every chance at a HEA for him and his raven haired beauty?
I loved Ashley and Tyler with all my heart. They were made for each other! He was the ultimate protective and possessive alpha who worshipped the ground his woman was walking on. I loved how he took care of Ashley. She was the sweetest and kindest person ever and deserved a great guy like him. Now I would love if Ben and Jana, Tyler's colleagues and officers, would get their own books. I really liked them!
If you're looking for a safe read, without unnecessary drama and the right amount of sweet and sexy, then this book is for you! Congratulations to Boom Factory Publishing and Ella Fox on this beautiful small town romance. I'm so looking forward to more books from the Charlotte's Cove series. 4,5 stars!
