Happy O’Brian spent the better part of his life isolated from the rest of the world. He was told he was evil down to his soul. It was physically beat into him on a daily basis. He lived with it, believing that his ultra conservative religious grandparents were right until the day his mother was attacked. Seeking help changed Happy’s life in ways he could never imagine and showed him a world he didn’t know existed.
Answering a disturbance call, Deputy Marc Walker meets a man that shocks him with his gentleness. When he discovers Happy’s true nature, Marc wants to know everything about the man. He wants to show him the world.
When the past rears its head, and their lives are put in danger, Happy tries to do the right thing and distance himself from his handsome deputy. But Marc has other plans for his gentle giant and he’s not going to let a little thing like getting shot or having escaped prisoners gunning for them interfere with those plans. Happy will get his happy ever after.
Note: Some graphic depiction of extreme violence against the hero when he was a minor.
A Siren Erotic Romance

The start of the Cade Creek series by Stormy Glenn is Happy’s Ever After.  I really enjoyed the character of Happy.  His name really fits him.  He is a gentle giant who cares deeply for others despite the hard ships and violence he was raised with.  Happy deserves the happy ending he gets he has more than earned it.
Marc is the perfect man for Happy. He is a deputy. And a protective man by nature.  He is patient and kind as well.  Something that will make him the perfect match for Happy, who has not seen as much of the world as the rest of us.

There are some scenes that are not for the faint of heart. The abuse that Happy goes through is really bad, but it was essential to the plot that we know that.   I felt Ms. Glenn handled everything with her usual grace and understand of the situation. She has an amazing voice as a writer and this story shows it very well.
When you want to start a series with emotional angst and characters you will never forget this is the one for you.
