Love Me Tender

A Caribou Crossing Romance, #5

“Love Me Tender” by Susan Fox is a contemporary romance novel from the Caribou Crossing Romance Series. This is the story of Dave Cousins, proprietor of the Wild Rose Inn, and Cassidy Esperanza, a hitchhiker, who literally falls into his business. When they meet, sparks fly. Dave is a settled man with a child, an ex-wife, and a fiancée who passed away from cancer. Cassidy, on the other hand, is a roamer. She has been all over the world trying to escape from the past. She finds that she has a life-changing illness. The novel follows Dave and Cassidy as they begin to face life as a couple.

I had a hard time reading this novel. I’m not sure why, except that the two main characters made me uncomfortable at times. I might try to read other novels in this series to see if it was just this book or the whole series that I did not enjoy reading.

Book Blurb for Love Me Tender

Pay a visit to Caribou Crossing, the rustic, inviting Western town where broken hearts mend and new love takes root…

Dave Cousins, owner of the Wild Rose Inn, is known throughout Caribou Crossing as the nicest--and loneliest--guy in town. He's had his heart broken more than once, and he's determined not to let it happen again. So it's no wonder he's wary when a free-spirited drifter leaves him longing for more than just a steamy fling…

Like the wild goose tattooed on her shoulder, Cassidy Esperanza goes wherever the wind takes her. For her, a new day means a fresh start. And yet something about her days in Caribou Crossing--and nights with its handsome hotel owner--makes her think about staying a while. But when life takes an unexpected turn, her first instinct is to take flight once more. Is Dave strong enough to help them both face their fears, come to terms with the past, and believe that sometimes love truly can last a lifetime?
