He’s a retired army drill sergeant, so he is more than used to getting his way.
And if he can’t have it his way? Well, let’s just say that’s never happened before…
At least not until Cora Maldonado walks into his life, demanding he fall in line, or she’ll find a way to make his life hell.
He finds out fast that Cora marches to the beat of her own drum, and a lot of times that drum takes her farther away rather than closer to where he feels she needs to be.
He can’t stand it.
He wants her, and he has to have her.
It doesn’t matter that she’s twenty years younger than him, and has a father that would rather see him dead than have his baby girl anywhere near him. Nor does it matter that his ex-wife is highly offended that she’s been replaced with a much younger woman.
Despite the odds stacking against them, he’ll fight for what he wants.
His ex-wife, her father, and their age difference be damned.
Holy hell Coke's ex is a freaking psycho!!
Hands down my new favorite in this series, Coke is a great man, amazing father even if he's not always perfectly attuned to his daughter. When he meets his new neighbor he's not sure what to think of her, there's something about her he likes though.
Cora is flipping amazing. She may be sort of hiding out from her crazy friends but when she meets Coke she doesn't want to hide from him.
After witnessing one of his ex's attacks on him she knows he's a good man and sends him a gift that brings a smile to his face.
From there the friendship develops, then more.
Cora is good for Coke and his daughter but the ex won't have him happy, she'll move heaven and earth to make sure he doesn't move on.
Loved this book, so much. Coke & Cora are better than I expected, and considering I had a favorite book/characters in this series it takes a good one to top it but they did.
