Jumping In by Cardeno C is a really sweet short story. I liked this one. Ms C always brings great connection and memorable characters this book is no exception.
Clint is a sheriff in a small town.  He is not having a good day. His ex is getting married to a woman but wants him on the side. He has gotten drunk torn up his house and then goes to a bar to get drunk.
Hawk is the deputy mayor. He offers Clint a ride home. He also has been secretly wanting Clint for a long time, maybe now is time to make his move.

I loved the intensity and love in this book. While short this story is one for any true romantic to read.
