While filling the display case in her bakery, Tess O’Hara hears the bell over the door and looks up to see the man of her dreams. Within thirty seconds he asks her out for a beer. But after four months of dating, she discovers he’s an undercover DEA agent – and he’s investigating her possible role in her ex-husbands drug business. For Tess, this means their relationship is over.
Brock disagrees. He’s commited to his anti-drug mission, but he’s fallen in love with the beautiful woman who’s as sweet as her cupcakes – and he’ll do anything to win her back. Standing between Tess and Brock are their own exes, one of them a drug lord whose determined to get what he wants. Now as danger threatens, can Brock break the rules he’s lived by and let loose his wild side to protect the woman he loves?
This one was better than the first one, for me in the sense that it didn’t introduce a crap load of characters that didn’t really have a major play in the plot. The set up was awesome, and I didn’t really expect the second book to have a major character that wasn’t in the first one. In the first book we just had met Det. Brock, it was a curve ball that he’d was the MMC, a lovely surprise.
There were some serious sad moments and some hilarious moments but Tess and Brock battled through it all and they eventually and finally got their happily ever after that they had been searching for. The author didn’t leave any loose ends and I’m happy to say that I have no complaints.
I will definitely read the rest of the series.
