Synopsis

A Laurel Heights Novel, Book 2

When Treat Byrnes walks into her bookstore café, Eve Alexander wants to eat him up. Bad boy isn't her usual flavor, but for the sexy contractor, she's willing to take a walk on the wild side.

Treat meets Eve on a reconnaissance mission for his mother, who owns a neighboring teashop, but he keeps going back to Eve for her sweet smile and sassy shoes. He has a history of falling for damsels-in-distress, but Eve doesn't need rescuing. Not even when her cafe is sabotaged.

But when Treat finds out the saboteur is his own mother, he knows he has to do something before things go too far.

Sweet story
June 16th, 2015
A sweet story, with somehow a lower pace, but good enought to entertain. The characters could have been more developed... and by the way, Margaret deserve a story for herself, thought

one of my favorite authors, actually the first book of hers that i read, since then i've bought and loved every single one, including this one. i loved how she manages to write about strong women who sound like fun at the same time. they're not perfect, they have issues, but it's not all drama with them. same with the guys/heroes, they're not perfect either but they're perfect for the heroines.

This is probably one of my most favourite books in the Laurel Heights series. I absolutely adore Treat and Eve; their obvious chemistry sizzles on each page. The scorching hot sex scenes help. ;) The side B story isn't quite as appealing, but I suspect many will find it pretty sweet, as well.

When I read a good book, as this was, I am always delighted if it is part of a series so I get a glimpse of the protagonists again and again. Like all of Kate Perry's books this one had just the right mix of romantic suspense and resolution. I also like the fact that if I do nothing else I can read the whole book in two days.
