Absolutely Amazing I m a great Fan of Samantha Cole This Book was so different from her Trident series It was just as enjoyable Mystery and suspense Lots of Intrigue Such a great story line Adam is a ex con and an ex Friar After serving his time, he lands in Oklahoma Gets a job with Save as a Ranch hand What happens next is a wonderful story From a True Fan Pam James. Samantha A Cole has a way of pulling a reader into the story that makes the reader feel like the book is happening around them Even though, The Friar, is not the usual type of book I m used to reading from her as I was reading it it had the same effect on me.After Adam Westfield, a former Franciscan Friar, is released from prison he wanders wherever life takes him doing odd jobs until he feels the need to move on.That how he came to be at Sage Hammond s ranch when she is threatened by another rancher to sell her ranch He intervened and their story takes off from there Sage is a widow raising two young kids trying to save the ranch that has been in her husband s family for many years.Someone wants the ranch at all cost Adam and Sage are working hard to try to save the ranch and at the same time try to discover who wants the ranch enough to destroy others in their path.I absolutely love the characters in this book Adam is one of the most honorable men I know Went to prison doing what others would consider as an act of heroism He also kept a young kid from testifying so they would have to relive what had happened.Sage is just about working herself to the point of exhaustion after the death of husband doing everything she can to save the ranch It would of been so much easier for her to sell She s one very strong woman.I like that this story didn t focus a lot on sex Not that there wasn t anythere was plenty of sizzle It has a strong story line that has a build up of intrigue that had me guessing on who wanted the ranch, why they wanted it and if Sage and Adam were going to survive I love books that pull me in and don t let go. The Friar I am happy to say was wonderfull I should clarify I had no small amount of trepidation about reading this after all I love Ms Cole s Trident series, her sexy, strong , honorable navy seals all into BDSM , but I feared a book about a friar , would it ruin my love of Ms Coles writing Hell no ,it did not Why you ask Ms Cole s Friar may not be an ex navy seal but he is a handsome, honorable , strong and protective man with a heart of gold , so in picking her hero Ms Cole never really left her formula, she still gave me an honorable hero Adam Westfeikd was raised with his foster brother by a loving couple , both solid community members , their fister father a police officer who believed they needed to know he to protect themselves, which is why Adam , a friar had a black belt in Krav maga, the very skill that would protect a young boy , but land him in jail Friar Adam, was sentenced to 10 years in prison , which he accepted to save that young boy from testifying in the accidental death of his attacker, but after five years of time served and being a model prisoner, Adam was released Having resigned his position as a Friar he felt he could not impose on his stepbrother and his family and took to the road, picking up small jobs and moving on, finally landing in Oklahoma and the Hammond Farm.Sage Hammond had been widowed and was now running her husband s family ranch by herself , while raising two young children and was in need of a ranch hand, Leary about giving an X con a job she sends Adam on his way, until he comes to her aid and gains her trust.As time passes Sage gets to see just how honorable , sweet and caring Adam is, he is wonderfull with her children and continually their for her and her attraction to him grows, but is it wrong to feel this way for a former celibate friar Adm feels the same attraction, and one longer a member of the order is frets explore his attraction, but his experience is limited and over twenty years old.These two make a lovely couple and face several challenges , a neighboring rancher trying to buy the ranch, to a barn fire, to a sniper shooting at Adam, nevermind the wagging tongues if the town gossips Sage fears that Adam will move on, while Adam fears that Sage does not care as much for him as he does for her Will they work out their issues Will they keep the ranch a float Will you read this book I hope so Ms Cole delivered a great read Arc copy supplied in exchange for an honest review. A stunning read Although the characters have a different background from her Trident Security Series, Samantha A Cole s characters and story line do not disappoint I quite enjoyed reading a bit away from her norm, and having a man of faith as a main character was great I really enjoyed the intimate scenes being a bit toned down than her usual erotica, it was very fitting for Adam His restraint at times was very endearing Sage is one hell of a woman She s real and tough and yet still vulnerable Yet, she s definitely NOT a damsel in distress She is first and foremost a mother, but she s still a woman The duality of it makes for an extremely realistic character. Samantha A Cole is best known for her Trident Security series and her Malone Brothers books While the Trident series and Malone Brothers are BDSM and Domination, The Friar is a standalone book with less emphasis on sex, but still the amazing storytelling that Ms Cole is so well known for.Adam is sent to prison for manslaughter, a former Franciscan brother, he spends time drifting until he comes upon the widow Sage Hammond He is told she needs help with her ranch, but when she finds out he s an ex con, his prospects don t look so good But a neighboring rancher shows up with his lackey and threaten Sage into selling her ranch Adam intervenes Sage decides to keep him on, and he s worth his weight in gold to Sage and her 2 children.Events begin happening at the ranch, and it s up to Adam to keep her safe, but who from Ms Cole has written another 5 star mega hit that will keep you riveted from the very first page all of the way to the very end. I must preface this review with a statement that Samantha s books are a 1 click for me I have very few authors in my 1 click category I first sample authors through KU, as this is the only option in which I can afford my reading addiction Yeah, no, not interested in giving up this particular addiction I have read ALL of Samantha s books She writes about male characters who are strong, love women, but once they find the one they are committed to her from day one The female characters in her books are strong independent women No fainting couch for these ladies The Friar is a departure from her previous books It is about a man looking for redemption who stumbles upon a strong widow The widow, Sage realizes she is ready to move forward after the tragic death of her husband and embrace the possibility of love again This story is about them finding each other with some twists in the story line, as always there is an element of suspense The sign of a good author is being able to demonstrate versatility in their writing style. OMG What a fantastic story I love to read Samantha A Cole books This one is not like her other books The Friar she taken the readers in a totally different way I love the storyline of this book I could not put down the book at all I was drawn into it with each page Sage is a widow trying to keep her husbands family ranch going, with two kids While Adam is trying to find his patch again You can understand Adam s thinking about why he did what he did you will love the chemistry between Adam and Sage You definitely need to read this story to find out what happened I promise you won t be disappointed in this book Keep up the amazing work Samantha I can not wait to read your next story. Samantha has done it again I have loved all of her books and each time she outdoes herself Knowing that this book is a standalone and a different story than her normal series, I was very excited to see how she would do it Adam and Sage are my new favorites Adam has been wandering around taking odd jobs after getting out of prison Searching for where God will lead him on his journey when he meets Sage a widow with 2 young children Is it Divine Intervention or just another stop on his journey Sage hasn t even been interested in other men since the untimely death of her husband Mark, Adam is an ex con, a wayward traveler but she is drawn to him She needs to be careful though he could be dangerous not only for herself and her children but he might just steal her heart.A Terrific Read 3 Adam was a man of God and in a moment of rage, did the unthinkable That had me hooked to read the book This is a totally different style of book that Samantha has brought her readers I was wondering how a romance between a Godly man and a widow would work out but Samantha nailed it Sage and Adam are perfect together and they need each other When things begin happening at the ranch she is trying to hold on to, she s glad that Adam is around The story was great as there was a build up to the sexual part of the characters relationship, which I m glad of I couldn t put the book down once I started it Well done `Kindle ☠ The Friar ☞ A Readers Favorite Award Silver Medal Winner The Friar Has Been Retitled The Road To Solace Adam Westfield Is An Ex Friar Just Released From Prison Unsure Of His Destiny, He Roams America, Hoping To Find A Purpose And Forgiveness A Widowed Mother Of Two, Sage Hammond Is Struggling To Keep Her Horse Ranch Afloat Unable To Find A Ranch Hand Willing To Work For Meager Wages, She S Close To Giving Up Then, An Answer To Her Prayers Appears A Quiet, Handsome Stranger Adam Is Falling In Love For The First Time In His Life, However, Strange Things Begin To Happen At The Ranch Things That Are Putting Sage And Her Children In Danger And He Finds He S Willing To Sell His Soul To Protect Them But Will It Be Enough A Man Trying To Overcome His Past A Woman Trying To Secure Her Children S Future Can They Both Learn To Live In The Present And Discover That Second Chances Do Exist The Friar Is A Stand Alone Novel And Not Related To Any Of Samantha A Cole S Current Series
