Case Holden hates his life. Made rich at a young age, he slipped into a lifestyle of partying with multiple boyfriends who only wanted to be with him for what he could give them. After confiding to his aunt that he’s miserable, she extends an invitation for a visit. Case plans to spend the time in small town Clover City to reprioritize and plant his feet on the road to happiness. He does not expect the Clover City sheriff to step into his world and wreak havoc on his emotions.
Two years ago, after the death of his partner, Rawley Kane moved to Clover City, trading the painful memories and big city madness for a less stressful existence. Even as sheriff, his life is uncomplicated and quiet. That is until Case Holden rolls into town and reminds Rawley just how lonely he is, and of everything he’s been missing.
Case is everything Rawley shouldn’t want. The man has six boyfriends and a life back in Denver, not to mention he’s quite a bit younger than Rawley. No matter what he tells himself, he can’t get enough of the young man. And Case has made it clear Rawley is the only one he wants. Now if they could just get past Rawley’s guilt and Case’s insistent boyfriends, they just might stand a chance.
Only You is the love story of Case and Rawley and how a chance meeting change their lives. Generally I like books where there is elements of angst and characters who are broken, but for some reason this book did not quite work for me.
I liked how the author has characterized both Case and Rawley. They both had their pasts and a lot to overcome before their relationship could work. But for some reason I couldn’t quiet see personal growth for them to make their relationship work. Case is a man whore with multiple boy friends and then one day he decides to break up with them all and when he meets Rawley he decided he is the one. Rawley is having his own demons and I felt that he should have properly worked them out before he pursued a relationship with Case. I felt both their issues were unresolved and they should have waited before deciding that they are going to be together. I also felt that their love story was not quiet convincing enough to make me root for them. I did how ever like the secondary characters and how they contributed to the story. I liked Case and Rawley individually but together they did not make much sense to me.
Only You is a love story which did not quiet work for me. But that does not mean it won’t for you. If you like the premise of the story do give it a chance.
