REVIEW: Glimmers of You by Catherine Cowles


Fall for Grae and Caden in their fake dating, brother’s best friend, small town romance from USA Today Bestselling Author, Catherine Cowles!

He hadn’t always just been my brother’s best friend. There was a time when he was mine, too. Until he disappeared from our small town when I needed him the most.

Now, Caden’s back. With his cocky smirk and infuriating nicknames. And I’m struggling to ignore his presence.


When my ex refuses to leave me alone, Caden steps in, suggesting that it will get my ex and Caden’s calculating father off both our backs if we just pretend to be madly in love.


There’s just one problem… Nothing I feel for Caden Shaw is fake—even when I thought I hated him. And there’s no denying how the touch of his lips sparks a flame I’ll never be able to extinguish.


As those pretend moments start to turn oh so real, someone’s watching. They’re not happy about Caden’s new role in my life. And they’ll do anything to rip me away from him—even burn us all to the ground…

Catherine Cowles is such a top-notch author! I seriously wait as patiently (ie not patient at all) as I can and then DEVOUR the entire story, generally in a day. That was exactly what happened with Glimmers of You. I could not get enough of Caden and Grae. This might start out as a fake relationship but nothing about it stays fake! These two are meant to be. I really enjoyed the suspense/thriller aspect of this story. Someone is not happy with Grae and Caden being together. When dangerous things start to happen, Caden and Grae just seem to get closer. This only angers our “bad guy”.

Cowles has such a way of pulling me in. It really starts with the way she creates her characters. I really feel like I get to know them. I root for them just like I would my friends. I love diving into interconnected series and really getting to know all the people in the town. I start to really care what happens to all the friends and the family. This is no different with Cedar Ridge… I could definitely see this series as an amazing Netflix show/movie. How amazing would that be?!?! The narration by Joe Arden and Erin Mallon was seriously amazing! They sound like real people and I just FELT the characters in them. Does that even make sense? I’m eagerly awaiting the next book in the series… who wants some of Aspen and Roan?!?!

RELEASE DAY: Love Me Today by A.L. Jackson

Love Me Today by A.L. Jackson is now live!


A jaded single dad. A woman returning to her small-town roots. Neither was prepared for their paths to collide…

I should have known I was in trouble when I backed my old, beat-up truck into the shiny Range Rover.

The driver looked like a gorgeous fallen angel – one who’d been booted right out of paradise for being a giant prick.

Good thing I’ll never have to see him again.

Except when I show up for my new job to teach a little girl how to ride her horse, I find the same icy blue eyes glaring back at me.

Paisley Dae is completely reckless. She’s also the best trainer in this small town. And Evelyn gets the best.

Protecting the little girl is my one focus.

Only the sassy trainer in her cut-offs and cowgirl boots quickly gets under my skin. Distractions are dangerous, but she soon becomes everything I crave.

One reckless night of giving in, and Caleb and I spiral into a web of passion.

But when I begin to unravel the secrets hiding in this place, I find there is more riding on this job than I thought.

Caleb and Evelyn are worth any sacrifice – only Caleb has to decide what he will sacrifice for me…

AL Jackson is one of my top favorite authors. She’s probably in my top 5 favorite authors. Love Me Today has two of my favorite genres in it… small town and single father romance. If you look through my reviews, I’m sure you’ll see several are of these same genres. Paisley is looking to restore her dream of working with horses again. She might has put her dreams aside for the last bit while he let her ex follow his dreams. She’s now ready to find herself again. This is how she meets Caleb and Evelyn. Evelyn is desperately wanting to learn to ride a horse. Against Caleb’s better judgement, he hires Paisley. He immediately wants her. He isn’t alone though; Paisley is just as wanton as Caleb is.

Paisley falls for Evelyn’s sweetness right away. Evelyn’s quiet, it’s clear to Paisley that her heart is aching. She’s wondering about the missing mom that no one talks about. Not only is Evelyn quiet but Caleb also seems to have something going on. He gives new-meaning to being over-protective. He’s over-bearing. He’s aloft. However, it’s clear that he would move heaven and Earth for Evelyn. So why does he keep his distance? It’s all a mystery to Paisley. The narration by Joe Arden and Andi Arndt gave one of the best performances. I could not get enough of this story. I mean, it’s nearly 11 hours long and I finished it in one day. Arden was perfect as Caleb. He can come off hard and fierce, it was the perfect tone for Caleb. Arndt is one of my all-time favorite narrators. She fully encompasses Paisley and all her characteristics. I really didn’t want this one to end!

I have two responsibilities as the new heir to the throne:

But with every day we grow closer to our wedding, we seem to grow apart.

Our commonalities are tested.
Our faith in each other is questioned.
And our safety is threatened.
The only thing working? The command he has over me in the bedroom.
