    2. Another good story in this series. Great Narration by Kate Rudd (audible review).This was another fun listen. I enjoyed it as much as the first one. I did like Tara and Ryan together a lot. She brought out the conversationalist in him LOL. They had some good chemistry together. Her back story was a bit sad and brutal but she was a survivor. There was a lot of dialogue throughout this story. Very easy story to follow along. It flowed very nicely.As for the narration, again Kate Rudd did a fantast [...]

    3. Ryan was adorable, I know that's not a manly trait but he was so sweet and the boy just doesn't know how to go about dating, it was funny to see him try, "silence filled the air, until finally he said, “Want to have phone sex?” I liked this book both Ryan and Tara were likable characters with great chemistry.

    6. This is the 2nd book in the series and it is wonderful. This story is about a wonderful woman who is a dentist who has to move her dentist practice, change her name and protect herself because she is trying to protect herself from her psycho ex husband who had a lot of money and is in a mental hospital on the East Coast, she wouldn't be far from her family and in a town that no one tells anybodies secrets.

    7. Didn't like this story as much as the first. Like the first book, the beginning was cheesy and bad, and this is not the best writing. What I loved so much in the first book was missing in this book, and characters I was really looking forward to reuniting with made little to no appearance. The whole point of having a series like this, I feel, is being able to revisit old loved characters and build upon a strong world or setting. The plot was over dramatic as usual but kind of interesting, like t [...]

    11. Loved this one! It's the second in the series but is completely stand alone! It has great writing, some really lovable characters, and just a touch of suspense that keeps you turning page after page.

Town sheriff Ryan Anderson doesn't date anyone from town. Makes the bre [...]

    15. It Had To Be Love is the story of Tara and Ryan set in the wonderful, fictional town of Anderson Butte, where all of the businesses are part of one big corporation, and where everyone gets a 401(k) and health benefits, as long as they follow the rules. It's a fun, interesting concept. There is also an underlying story a la "the Hatfields and the McCoys" between the Andersons and the Grants which is exacerbated in this story by the mystery of a hidden moonshine recipe and barrels of aged whiskey! [...]

    17. Very good read for my 1st read by Tamra Baumann. I got this book as an ARC for an honest review through Net Galley & the publisher. I enjoyed the sweet & sad relationship between Tara & Ryan.

    21. IT HAD TO BE LOVE was certainly love for me as soon as I started this book! As soon as I met the hero, Ryan, I knew he was my kind of hero. The strong, shy and silent type always gets me. I love watching that kind of hero fall in love, and then bumble around a little about how to express himself, love fully, and get his true love to fall in love back. Ryan was all that and more.He's also one of the Anderson siblings who we met in Book 1 of the series (It Had to Be Him) and -- although you don't [...]

    22. First reviewed at Keeper BookshelfTara had secrets. She was on the run from an abusive past and hoped that finally she had found a place to stop and live her life. Ryan wanted to know what those secrets were. His interest in Tara was far from professional. As the town of Anderson Butte’s Sheriff, he wasn’t running her plates for outstanding warrants. But he was attracted and she was keeping secrets. In his opinion secrets were there for a reason, but they had to come out sooner or later when [...]

    23. It Had to Be Love by Tamra Baumann is the second book in the series so far. The first book, It Had to Be Him I found to be not as good as this one. Usually the first book is a little better, and the second book almost feels like a repeat of the first with a slightly different plot and different main characters, but not this one!! I liked this one way more than the first. I ended up reading it in one day. It was hard to put down, and I stayed up late, at that point there was only 20 or so minutes [...]

    25. Welcome to Anderson Butte, Colorado where love always finds a way. In the second book of the Anderson series we are faced with a mystery, so cleverly wound throughout the story, that it kept this reader glued until the book was finished. Tamra has indeed done it again with the second book in the Anderson series. In her first book, It had to Be Him, we met the gun toting granny, and a few other great characters. In this, her second book, we meet a one of a kind sheriff, a woman with a terrifying [...]

    27. I was given an ARC of It Had to Be Love from NetGalley for an honest review and this is the review.This was a pretty good story. It had a pretty good plot and the romance was well written. I found myself laughing out loud at times when some of the characters got themselves into some of the jams the seemed to find themselves in that the sheriff had to deal with. I also liked Ryan and Tara together. They were a cute couple and it cute how the were "fake" boyfriend and girlfriend. The chemistry bet [...]

    28. Ryan is a small-town Sheriff and Tara a Dentist hiding from a horrific past that is slowly closing in. This is a 2nd novel in a series, but can stand alone. Although a bit formulaic, I still enjoyed the mildly suspenseful romance. Ryan and Tara make a sweet and fun couple. The town, it's quirky inhabitants, and a town-wide search for treasure give the book its comedic moments. Tara proceeds to deny or hold back her true feelings for Ryan, while he slowly, but most assuredly, wants more. My one p [...]

    29. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review on NetGalley.Oh my gosh! This book ended the best way possible. There were a couple of plot twists that made me just want to keep reading. The book started off really calm and ended in a happy way. Like most stories should end, this one ended with a happy ending.The book is realistic to the point of being believable for it to happen in real life. It takes realistic fiction to a whole new level. I didn't expect anything in this book t [...]
