There is only one thing in life that professional pastry Chef Pricilla Westcott values more than baking and wine, and that’s honesty. A quality she soon learns that her marriage lacks when her husband runs off with their next doorneighbor.
Divorced and alone, Priscilla is determined to make changes in her life. She decides to approach her new goals like one of her beloved recipes. Surely with a little time, a dash of patience, and measured planning she can whip herself—and her life—back into shape.
However, when a new—and utterly delicious—neighbor takes up residence in the house that ruined her marriage, Priscilla worries that her careful world will fold faster than a deflated soufflé.
Trent Walker knows what he wants and his sweet, sassy neighbor is at the top of the list. He’s certain that the chemistry between them would be explosive, but Priscilla fears that an affair with him, however hot, could be a recipe for disaster.
This was definitely a fun...and a little crazy read for me. A breath of fresh air that I needed to get me away from the stress of work. Seriously though, I need a job that does not deal with people on a daily basis....
CeCe is quirky, a lil weird and funny. She is also slightly crazy and a lil too obsessed with wine. Took me quite some time to warm up to her. Trent, on the other hand, is the epitome of an alpha, caveman. He'll gets you all swooning and falling down at his feet. I wish a hot guy would move in next to me as well...I need some eye candies in my life.
Overall, a pretty good romantic comedy with a splash of witty banter and steam! The story flowed rather well as well. Not really that memorable to me but it's a good pick me up book when you're in need of a laugh!
Excerpt . . .
Somewhere on that list used to be honesty. Up until about three months ago, honesty was a huge factor. You couldn’t be trusted if you couldn’t be honest. And Elvis said it best when he said, “When things go wrong, don’t go with them.” Therefore, that one is currently shattered and in the hot-mess pile. I’m in the process of scraping honesty off my list with a pitchfork, and gasoline. Possibly artillery.
Blah, moving on.
Number two on that list is wine, so whoever is at that door is going to die. It’s settled. I have had a decent life, but the remainder of it is going to be spent behind bars. I’ve been dealt some shitty cards lately, but to mess with my vino is crossing the line.
