Title: Carry Me Home
Paradise, Idaho, may not be the largest town, but for newly minted professor Zoe Santangelo, it’s the first step on the path to her big break. After teaching in a small Idaho school, her next stop is the Ivy League, and no one is going to stand in her way. She’ll do what it takes to move up, to protect her students from a creepy campus stalker—and to protect her heart from Cal Jackson, the hot, hunky cowboy who keeps coming to her rescue.
After a career-ending injury, Cal has left professional football behind and come home to work the family farm. He’s determined not to get mixed up with any more city girls who don’t want to settle down with a country boy. But after he rescues sassy geologist Zoe from a snowy ditch, he can’t stop thinking about her. Can Cal keep Zoe safe from whoever is targeting her—and can he show her that having ambition doesn’t mean she has to sacrifice love?

Paradise, Idaho. A small town where everyone knows your name, where you came from and all of your secrets from the past. It also appears to be a town where everyone is related to Cal Jackson, hometown football hero turned pro, living back home after a career ending injury. Zoe is the only one who doesn’t know who he is because she just moved to town, working as an assistant professor at the university.
After rescuing Zoe from a ditch and then re-meeting at a bar, Cal can’t seem to stay away. He becomes even more determined when a serial rapist/stalker has his eyes set on Zoe. Zoe is a geek turned hottie and has her heart sealed tight, thanks to a situation from college. Cal has his work cut out for him if he’s gonna tear down those walls.
The Author did a good job with the suspense (even though I figured it out immediately). I wish that the “romance” side of the story didn’t take as long as it did to “get there”, but suspense is suspense, right?
Overall, good read and I’d recommend it to those looking for something a little different from the typical contemporary romance gush.
