Love Me Today
By: A.L. Jackson
Narrated by: Joe Arden & Andi Arndt

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....


Momma Says: 3 stars⭐⭐⭐

Love Me Today is a single dad, grumpy/sunshine romantic suspense with a bit of workplace and forced proximity romance thrown in. I really liked the premise, and Caleb and Paisley are easy to root for once they get out of their own way. Then there's Evelyn, who's a scene-stealer and bigger than life for such a little girl. Joe Arden and Andi Arndt give voice to the characters, and if you've ever listened to these narrators, I don't have to tell you how they can bring a story to life. Both are as entertaining here as I expected, and they do an excellent job of bringing out all the feels of the romance. This one is a slow-burn romance with an overprotective parent figure - but is it really overprotective if there's a very real danger? The drawback for me is that I feel like the story is a bit too long, and there's a lot of time spent going over the same information. Nevertheless, I'd still say the book is worth the listen, and the combination of romance and suspense keeps things moving along.
