New Review~~ Smitty’s Sheriff by Cardeno C.


Smitty’s Sheriff, a sexy, heart-warming MM romance by Cardeno C. is now LIVE!


Todd is too flakey. Richard is too stubborn. Together, they’re perfect. A May-December couple get a second chance at love.

Retired soldier Richard Davis wants a stable life in a quiet town with a forever man. Becoming the sheriff of Hope, Arizona, accomplishes two of his three goals, but instead of finding a serious partner, he falls for too-young-to-be-committed and too-flakey-to-be-serious Todd Smitty. Richard won’t find the right man if he’s obsessed with the wrong one, so he walks away from Todd.

It’s lust at first sight when Todd meets his sister’s army friend. He sets his sights on the worldly, strong, stable older man, and the more time he spends with Richard, the harder he falls. But after three years together, Richard cuts off all contact with no explanation.

When a mutual obligation requires Todd to move into Richard’s house, he’s thrilled at the opportunity to earn a second chance. Ignoring Todd from across town was hard enough. Can Richard resist temptation under his own roof?

Dawn’s 3 Blush Review

Smitty’s Sheriff by Carden C is a May / December second chance romance. It’s a quick entertaining read. It held my attention but wasn’t what I’ve come to expect from Cardeno C. Some of the characters words and actions just bothered me.

Richard is older, established and serious. He’s the sheriff of Hope. While Todd is young, immature and flaky. He has no real direction in life. Simply working at his family’s store. They had a 3 year relationship that Richard had ended with no explanation. Leaving him and Todd heartbroken. This is a classic case of no commmuication! If they had just talked all of the heart ache could have been avoided. Richard is a good guy, but contradictory in his actions. He treats Todd like a child. Almost talking down to him, then telling him how wonderful and perfect he is… Todd’s low self worth was hard to take at times. He thought he was beneath Richard. As the story progressed I did realize why both guys acted they way the did. When truths and answers finally came out, I definetly felt how much they cared for one another. Cardeno C did a great job with flipping the story and transforming the guys as well as their relationship. The end totally made this book for me. It was so sweet
