Synopsis

-- A USA TODAY Bestseller --

From the author of the NYT bestselling Can't Resist series comes a lighter, slow & sweet series set in the quirky town of Cactus Creek, where the emotional happily-ever-afters come with loads of romance and unapologetically nosy & nutty secondary characters who just make everything way more fun.


Cactus Creek's most romantic eligible bachelor, new-to-town and new-to-singlehood chocolatier Luke Bradford believes in old school romance, fighting wars waged over love, and deploying his dimples whenever an impossible-to-resist woman instigates it. But for once, he's trying not to platter up his heart to get stomped on. So, he throws all his energy into the brand new hobby he picked up to keep himself from falling:

...driving the addictively easy to incite beer-brewing beauty next door crazy.

Cactus Creek's feisty brewmaster and town sweetheart Dani Dobson cannot believe how good her ridiculously handsome, maddeningly charming new neighbor is at pushing her buttons. What's worse, he does it with this dangerous smile-inducing, chocolate-covered romantic idealism--not unlike the kind her heart has been shattered by before. Luckily, she has her go-to hobby to keep her defenses up, and her mind off of the man:

...playing her own version of cupid for everyone in town but herself.

When Dani and Luke's inexplicable chemistry escalates their ensuing chocolate and beer feud into so much more, old wounds and new demons surface to bring them face-to-face with exactly what they've been protecting themselves from:

...the kind of love that could break their hearts all over again.

"A new must-read series from Violet Duke. Not only will you fall in love with the characters, you'll fall in love with romance." --New York Times Bestselling Author Kathleen Brooks

    Love, Chocolate, and Beer

    Violet Duke never disappoints. You will laugh, cry, and fall in love right along with the characters. I fell in love with Cactus Creek too, and can't wait to meet more of the residents of this cool town.

    cute read

    Yet again, another wonderful book from Violet Duke! I have loved every book I have read from her so far! This book is in the Cactus Creek Series (which is an awesome series BTW). I love how Violet takes 2 people who are not likely to end up together and make them work! Who wouldn’t love a chocolatier though? Their love story is wonderfully written. There are sparks for sure, but not always the romantic kind. I look forward to reading more books in this series.

    Dani & Luke

    A new to me author. I found this books plot line to be well developed, but the flow as it started off good lengthened alot on and on, on discriptions of beer layering and how chocolates are (semi process im sure) made. Loved the characters they were fun.

    Good read

    What a gorgeous "little" book. With humour all the way through, it made you want to smile all the time. Maybe it was a bit long but still could not put it down.
